Lauren Cassidy: Visions for the Art of Hair
When did you first learn about Shaklee?
In the early 90’s when I was selling beauty products. I was made aware of people selling through direct sales and Shaklee although I never really knew of a distributor.
Do you recall when and where we met?
Must have been at a networking event. I like that you are all about networking, supporting small businesses along with women in business.
What do you like about Shaklee or the products?
Pureology, the hair care line that I carry has a philosophy similar to Shaklee. They are into sustainability and the environment. They give directives to the salon owners to be kind to the environment. So the cleaners from Shaklee work right into that. Pureology encourages lukewarm water not hot, doing full loads of laundry, buying locally and using green cleaners along with lots of other things. The colors I use don’t have ammonia in them anymore so I do not smell that all day.
I have liked what you have told me about the owner of Shaklee (Roger Barnett) . He is not about making products that just sell well but is about making products that do good for others as well as good for the environment. I even have a tab on my website about Going Green.
Do you have a favorite product?
I love the Cleaning products. Because of my health issues of late I am not able to use any of the nutritional products yet. I look forward to integrating them into my routine once I am through my treatment and I am healed. I know there will be products I can use. And I know they are good. If the company has been around for more than 50 years and still going strong, it’s gotta be good.
What to do you wish Shaklee had that they do not?
What can I do for you as your Wellness consultant?
Continue to be consistent with your message. You are so passionate about what you do, helping others and people know that. You stick with what you love.
