Having frizzy, unkempt hair can make you appear disoriented and unhinged during job interviews, first dates, and shouting matches with the neighbor's bush. Keep it together with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a keratin treatment at The Nature Company Salon & Spa (a $175 value).
The savvy stylists at The Nature Company Salon & Spa smooth tangled tresses with keratin treatments and organic, paraben-free products. Strand-smoothing sessions use KeraGreen formula to transform frizzy mop tops into straight, cascading coiffures with more durable roots than carpenter-jean-wearing oak trees. Each eco-friendly flattening proffers results that can last about two months on au naturel follicles and even longer on chemically treated cranial carpets. To alleviate customers' concerns regarding harmful chemicals and pollutant practices, The Nature Company only uses salon goods that are toxin free, animal friendly, and PETA approved.
Salon O Day Spa
When Martha Millan says, "Beauty shouldn't hurt," she's not peddling a slogan—her first job in the beauty industry literally caused her pain. Working at an upscale salon, her exposure to common hair and makeup products triggered hives and headaches. While searching for more natural goods for personal use, her research revealed unsettling truths about many industry product lines that often use irritating perfumes to mask the underlying odors of harsh chemicals. Feeling that everyone should have the opportunity to look beautiful without fear of harming health, she bought a salon and transformed it into Salon O Day Spa.
Amid Salon O Day's industrial decor, Millan and her team of stylists, aestheticians, and a massage therapist use products so natural that some are even edible, though Millan imagines the taste would leave something to be desired: barbecue sauce. Among the array of certified-organic, not-tested-on-animals, gluten- and chemical-free products, Millan's favorites include Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare, developed by an American physician who advocates against overexfoliation. For hair, stylists use products from lines including Surface Hair and Organic Color Systems, and during nail services, technicians use natural products from SpaRitual in tandem with scrubs made in-house from ingredients bought at a local co-op.
