A journey to make a dream a reality…
Most people have moments that shaped their life forever. Moments that set them on a journey they never knew they would go. For me that moment was when I looked down at the clumps of hair that wove through my fingers – my hair was falling out. In that moment, my heart sank, and a wave of fear rolled over me, 7 years in hairdressing I knew that it was an affliction not easily alleviated. By the time I met my naturopath, I had 83 symptoms in all. Among them were pre-diabetes, sever weakness and exhaustion, malnutrition and weight loss. I was 24 years old and felt as though I was falling apart. This began a journey that redefined everything I knew: my health, beauty, and life; a journey that would take me through stacks of books, hours of interviews, and a series of experts; a journey that inspired a vision, out of which K Salon was born.
The journey’s reward was my health gained, and an accumulation of knowledge that would help not only myself, but those around me; knowledge that opened my eyes to surprisingly simple insights that carried profound implications. As I sifted through hundreds of studies about common carcinogenic chemicals, one thing became clear: thousands toxic chemicals, many of which have been banned in other countries, lurked in almost every beauty product on the market. To my surprise, some of the most toxic concoctions were actually found in baby products. In this an even more startling realization emerged, that even conventional “organic” alternatives were compromised by corporate conglomerates. The subtle sellouts that happened overnight made trust a momentary and always shifting enterprise; even reputable high end organic product lines were susceptible to toxic chemical formulations that I was now so tirelessly trying to abandon.
Through this struggle, I continued to amass the knowledge that would fuel a growing passion, to share this information with anyone in need, helping friends, family members and acquaintances, raising their awareness to the reality of what it meant to be truly organic and how to live a health-giving lifestyle.
As I grew, I embraced the reality, that there needed to be a place that facilitated this information. It seemed almost serendipitous, that the toxic industry I had worked in for so long was now that perfect place for such undertaking. What I envisioned was not a salon of gossip and weekend news, but a salon that would be a resource for clients- peeling back the layers of misinformation, to expose a deeper truth of what it meant to really live well. In these few short years, I’ve had the fortunate experience to have reached many people. The biggest reward is helping others to face their health struggles and to encourage the healthy to remain so. Everyday K Salon does this; never compromising beauty for health, or health for beauty.
