Can you believe it’s been more than a year and a half since Salon Juleen opened it’s doors? Time is just flying by! I absolutely LOVE working from home, and I sure hope you are all enjoying the more peaceful environment, minus the occasional barking dog, or crying baby!
As you probably know, I became pregnant right around the same time I moved my business home. I instantly became more aware of all of the chemicals I am exposed to in my work, which I was now bringing into my home and exposing my family to. I concluded that I needed to figure out a way to protect myself, my husband, my baby, and even my pets from as many toxins and unsafe chemicals as I could to compensate for the extra chemicals I was now bringing into the home. I gradually eliminated Windex, The Works, Comet, etc. from under my kitchen sink and began replacing them with safer, natural cleaning products. It gave me some peace of mind knowing that if I spilled a little cleaner and my dog licked it up or someday my sweet baby girl (WHO IS 10 MONTHS OLD TODAY!!!) managed to get into it, they might get a tummy ache but it wouldn’t be life threatening! Not only do I care about my family’s health and safety, but I care about YOU, my clients! So naturally, I’ve been using these new products to clean the salon too!
Several months ago a friend and client challenged me to consider taking it a step further and converting over my personal beauty products as well, which only makes sense since your skin is the largest organ of the human body and absorbs everything it comes into contact with right into your whole system! I was a little hesitant though, because money is always something I take into consideration, and I get a rather hefty discount on beauty products from my salon distributors. I started looking into the products and prices and realized that I could actually get hair products, cosmetics, and skincare for the same amount and sometimes even less than what I was paying with my discount! I eventually decided to give it a try and have been so pleased with the quality and price of the products that I have actually begun using many of the hair products on you in the salon! If you’ve had an appointment at Salon Juleen in the last 3 or 4 months, you’ve already unknowingly experienced some of these great new products. Many of you have even noticed and asked me about them!
Because I’ve become so passionate about keeping my family and my clients safe and healthy, I will be hosting “Go Green” Workshops in my home several times a month, where you can come and learn about these new products I’m using and how your can “Go Green” (to whatever extent you choose) in your home too! The first two events will be Sunday, November 24th at 7 pm, and Monday, November 25th at 7 pm. Please let me know ASAP if you are interested in attending either of these or other future events, or if you would like to meet with me one-on-one to learn more!
