All about Rene Furterer Absolue Kératine Hair Repair

Beauty of Nature on Jan 1 2020

Happy New Year to all!!

Once again, it’s time for us to renew our thoughts and actions and focus on “Health”.  Health is really the first wealth we have.

This shot was a sunset taken on January 1, 2020 as I stood on our patio in WV looking out towards UBC and Vancouver Island.

Clinical studies have found that being exposed to “2 hours of nature a day significantly reduce stress hormones up to 800% and activates 500 to 600 DNA segments known to be responsible for healing and repairing the body.”

Incorporating as much of Nature into your daily life and putting some time aside for “zoning out” is so important to our wellbeing.  That also means using scientifically-formulated non-toxic plant-based products for both face, scalp, hair and body.


Now, ready to commit to a simple ONE MONTH New Year’s Resolution?… Below is a great Hair Repair Ritual we now carry that will help you reconstruct your hair in JUST ONE MONTH, no kidding!!:


Ever since they’ve reformulated the ABSOLUE KÉRATINE HAIR CARE LINE, I’ve been loving this as my Go-To Shampoo/Mask for instant repair for daily Hair-Abuse.  Use the shampoo and mask (choose from either for fine~med hair or for thick~coarse hair) ONCE A WEEK for ONE MONTH.  After that, you can stop for a month and resume the following month or depending on your hair condition and your daily hair maintenance, use accordingly.  Use the beauty cream anytime daily.  They will instantly work to repair, strengthen and retrieve resilience back into the hair.  This is ultimately giving your hair a “retreat”!

• ABSOLUE KÉRATINE SHAMPOO: This powerful sulfate-free shampoo is meant to repair very damaged, over-processed, brittle or limp hair, coloured hair and hair that’s being abused with daily hot tool use. It injects plant-based keratin into the hair making it stronger, healthier and more resilient. Directions: Apply to wet hair, lather well and leave on for 1~ 3 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. Works even better when you do a COMPLEXE 5 scalp treatment prior to your shampoo.
For Fine~Medium Hair & For Coarse Thick Hair
• ABSOLUE KÉRATINE MASK: From the very first application, the substance of your hair changes, making your hair stronger, thicker and more resilient. It’s rich in plant-based keratin, Biocymentine and Camelina oil. Directions: After shampooing, slightly towel dry the hair so that it’s not saturated with water. Apply a walnut-sized amount and distribute evenly throughout the hair. Leave on for 5~10 min. Rinse thoroughly.
• ABSOLUE KÉRATINE BEAUTY CREAM: This is your daily beauty cream. You can use it anytime, anywhere, as often as you want. Enriched with protective sesame oil, this cream will restructure damaged hair from roots to ends. Use on dry or towel-dried hair. Apply a hazelnut sized amount from mid shaft to ends, then style. Do not rinse out.


Wishing you health and wellbeing for the year 2020.

We look forward to taking care of you soon!! 🙂
