    Pain Relief for Skin and Muscles

    CBD Daily is a trusted CBD-infused skin care line that addresses a wide variety of pain, and especially useful for arthritis, sore muscles and inflammation. It soothes and moisturizes while relieving overall discomfort.

    But many people ask 'Is this legal?' Yes, most certainly. CBD is derived from hemp, and unlike its cousin the marijuana plant, is completely non-psychoactive. This means that you will not get high. However, you will see other benefits from using CBD - because it contains vitamins A, C, D, E, calcium, potassium, iron, omega fatty acids, and a plethora of other vitamins and minerals. (And don't forget about the pain relief!)

    CBD products we carry:
    - Intensive Skin Cream - Regular Strength (60 mg)
    - Intensive Skin Cream - Triple Strength (180 mg)
    - CBD Soothing Serum
    - CBD Active Spray

    All products can be applied directly to the skin. Try a sample today and you'll see why people are raving!

  • Dermaplaning - facial exfoliation


    Your skin will be smoother and brighter than ever!

    Dermaplaning is an effective exfoliating treatment in which an aesthetician uses a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off dead skin cells on your face (along with any pesky peach fuzz). You may wonder 'Why is this necessary?' Because, due to the buildup of dead skin and microscopic hairs, your complexion may appear dull and flaky, and breakouts may occur more often due to clogged pores. This form of mechanical exfoliation is essential for maintaining an even, healthy glow.

    Incredible Benefits:
    - Recommended for all skin types (except those with enflamed acne, rosacea or exzema)
    - Painless and no downtime; light redness is gone within an hour
    - Results can last up to 4 weeks
    - Makeup go on smoother and more evenly
    - Hair does not grow back thicker or darker
    - Procedure can be performed on pregnant women

    Post-procedure tips:
    - First time clients: slight tingling is normal; use gentle, hydrating products after your session
    - More experienced clients: you can apply peels, enzymes or deeper treatments afterwards
    - Do not over exfoliate for about 4-5 days
    - Be sure to use sun screen and wear a hat

  • Olaplex scientifically strengthens your hair to hold color longer

    What is Olaplex, and why is it revolutionary?

    You will LOVE Olaplex - add it to your next color service!
    From base color to Balayage, Olaplex multiplies bonds making hair stronger, healthier, while color lasts longer with more vibrancy. What does this really mean? You can go further with any color you want. Go blonder, or go from red to blond in one color session versus three. Push the envelope without the fear of damaged hair.

    Olaplex: Three (Easy) Step Process
    No. 1 / Bond Multiplier: Solution is mixed with hair color or highlights
    No. 2 / Bond Perfector: Applied after color / highlights are rinsed out
    No. 3 / Hair Perfector: Take-home product for further hair strengthening

    Product Features:
    - Compatible with all permanent and semi-permanent color brands
    - Free of silicones, oils, aldehydes, parabens and gluten
    - Adds minimal time to the coloring process
    - Works great with hair extensions
    - Gives you softer, shinier, easier to manage hair with less frizz for weeks

    How does it work?
    A pair of respected scientists invented a single ingredient chemistry, free of silicone or oils, that links broken bonds in the hair during and after chemical services making them stronger than they were before. It may all sound like the same old mumbo jumbo, but check out what top colorists are saying about Olaplex all over social media (eg. Instagram, Facebook and Twitter). As they say, the proof is in the pudding.

    No. 3 Hair Perfector - Why Use at Home?
    Due to bonds being continuously broken within the hair through thermal styling, mechanical styling or continued color / perm / relaxer services, the integrity, strength, shine and softness will dissipate in a few weeks to a month dependent on how your hair is treated. The No. 3 Hair Perfector will maintain strength, structure, integrity, softness and shine leading up to your next salon service.

    No. 3 Hair Perfector Instructions
    Prior to shampooing, apply a generous amount to wet towel-dried hair and leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes / once a week. Then rinse, shampoo and condition as you would normally. Please note - this is NOT a conditioning treatment to be left on the hair. It should be shampooed out. The longer it is left on, the more effective it is. The product can be used more than once a week, if necessary.

    Olaplex Customer Feedback: "I have always had fine, thin, fragile hair. I get it colored, permed and use a curling iron daily. If I did not, my hair looks awful! However, a year ago I noticed the hair on my crown was very short. lt was simply breaking off every time I combed and curled it. The Hair Connection suggested the Olaplex system. The result - it seriously helped my hair and it grew back. I have since been using Olaplex at home as a regular conditioner. Then most recently, l had a curling iron malfunction and it burned my hair and made it crispy. My stylist was concerned she would have to cut it very, very short. But she first used the Olaplex system and left it in for a longer period of time. It was truly amazing how my hair changed from 'fried' to normal. She did have to trim it a tad shorter but not drastically. I was so grateful and relieved. I would recommend Olaplex to anyone who has experienced damage or desires healthy hair. In my life, I have used many products for fragile hair and Olaplex has proven to be the best solution!" (Lynne W.)

    Do Anti-Acne Facials Really Help?

    Why get an acne/deep cleansing facial? Anti-acne facials are recommended for teenagers, women and men with oily or acneic skin, or uneven complexions. For ideal results, a series of cleansing facials and a daily skin-care regimen is recommended. These treatments will also assist in preventing future breakouts.

    What We Do at the Hair Connection:

    First visit / 1 hour facial: Our aesthetician will analyze your skin condition and tailor an individual skin-care program for you. Your skin will be cleansed and recommendations will be shared for anti-acne products to use at home between visits. (Be sure to let the therapist know if you are currently using any acne medications.)

    Second visit / two weeks later: She will review how well your skin is healing and if more visits are necessary. Extractions may be required to ensure clear skin between facials. The extraction service typically takes 10-15 minutes.

    Third visit / 3-4 weeks later: The third visit is only if required, and would be one hour or less in length. By this time, many clients see substantial results. If your acne is not entirely gone, we’re confident your skin’s condition will be significantly better and you’ll notice a healthy glow.

    Anti-Acne Products for At-Home Use: Our Orgami skin care line has proven to be effective and will give you noticeably healthier skin in only a few weeks. The Orgami line is all-organic and includes individual products for different skin types.

    Anti-acne product options include:
    - Active cleansing gel
    - Glycolic mud cleanser
    - Blemish control astringent
    - Blemish control gel (used to spot treat/prevent new breakouts)
    - Vitamin B cream (for moisturizing; gives skin a natural glow)

    To schedule your anti-acne facial, call 920-722-2341 and review our Orgami skin care collection.
    Please note – If for any reason, a breakout is too severe, we will recommend visiting a local dermatologist.
