Bur Bur, The Botanical Hair Treatment That’s Turning Heads

November 21, 2022

BUR BUR is a woman-owned beauty company that was founded because they wanted to create not only a good look but also a feel-good product. I started drenching my over-dyed, bleached hair in this gorgeous oil a couple of weeks ago and it’s already showing some major restoration. Now, mind you, you do NOT need to drench your hair as I do. I just love an oily ponytail, knowing that while I’m on a hike or working out, my hair is soaking up incredible botanical nutrients.

What is the Burdock plant you ask? It is a powerful botanical that was used for generations for hair wellness and was an inspiration and a foundation for BUR BUR’s formula which consists of Burdock Oil from the plant. It is very dear to them because it comes from their heritage. They are excited to introduce their unique formula to you.  Self-care is a fun and amazing way to get to know oneself and BUR BUR would love to join you on this journey, especially during the holiday season.

Their promise is that all BUR BUR products are and always will be natural, non-toxic, and very effective for your hair and scalp. Every single ingredient in their hair oil is there for a reason. They do not add any chemicals or perfumes. And this will never change. BUR BUR will easily fit into your beauty and wellness routine to help you achieve the best hair results!

BUR BUR can be found on their website as well as Urban Outfitters online.

Biologique Rercherche Arrives On Melrose Place

August 12, 2022

Biologique Rercherche has arrived!!

Through its first flagship U.S. Ambassade, the French brand known for personalized skin care brings its complete face, body, and scalp care expertise to a single and exclusive location in Los Angeles.

Biologique Recherche is HERE, on Melrose Place. Biologique Recherche’s unique methodology, proprietary skin diagnostics, and full range of products and hyper-personalized treatments for face, body, and scalp. You know – the cult goodness like no other.

Founded in the late 1970s by a family of artisanal skincare experts, Biologique Recherche built its reputation for effectiveness through a visionary approach based on a customized methodology of cosmetic treatments adapted to every Skin Instant© and products with a high concentration of active ingredients.

The Biologique Recherche Ambassade, a concept created by founder Yvan Allouche, represents the pinnacle of the brand’s expertise. Like a country’s embassy, this Ambassade serves as the exclusive, exceptional representation of Biologique Recherche in the US. The elite Ambassade worldwide network shares irreproachable values, passion, and success, to deliver exceptional customized skincare services.

Like the historic Biologique Recherche Ambassade on the Champs-Elysées in Paris, the West Coast is getting its first exclusive U.S. flagship to deliver the essence of the brand’s know-how, from its proprietary skin diagnostics to ultra-personalized treatments for the face, body, and scalp, as well as the exclusive full range of retail products. The Biologique Recherche LA Ambassade is the culmination of the brand’s specialized skills, high standards and extensive experience.


We have an elite international network of Biologique Recherche Ambassade locations in Europe and Asia” says Rupert Schmid and Pierre-Louis Delapalme, co-chairmen of Biologique Recherche. “We’re proud to expand this roster with our first-ever flagship U.S. location and bring the full Biologique Recherche experience to Los Angeles.”

The full Biologique Recherche experience is built on the unique three stage methodology that hyper- personalizes each treatment based on individual skin needs.

The Assessment Stage is Stage 1 in the methodology and uses the proprietary diagnostic Skin Instant© Lab tool to analyze and determine a person’s Skin Instant©, which is the condition of the skin at the time of assessment. The VisioLab© tool takes a high-resolution photograph and offers an even more finely tuned analysis.

To go even further with the Assessment Stage, Biologique Recherche offers the My Beauty DNA© test that assesses skin on a genetic level and provides an overview of your genetic predispositions. With the My Beauty DNA© testing kit, Biologique Recherche is able to analyze 14 skin characteristics linked to aging, sensitivity, exposure to the sun and environmental factors, and the skin profile. This analysis enables better understanding of each individual’s genetic predispositions and the “inherited” needs of their skin, which are invisible to other diagnostic instruments.

Stage 2 is the Initialization Stage, and it begins with individualized preparation of the epidermis that includes thoroughly cleansing the skin, combined with a massage, and preparing the skin using the brand’s iconic Lotion P50.

Stage 3 is the Treatment Stage, which uses hyper-customized products to “recondition” the epidermis and over time, improve skin quality and leads to a radiant complexion. To complete each treatment, the Ambassade offers additions like the Remodeling Face® and Remodeling Face® Chin enhancements.


The interior architecture was entrusted to Joanne de Lépinay, a French designer who worked on the original Paris Ambassade, to bring the same Parisian spirit to the Ambassade in Los Angeles.

We wanted to create a very authentic French experience with an elegant Parisian aesthetic. We took elements from the original Paris Ambassade to extend the authenticity of the brand and create continuity. All the millwork is custom made and the furniture is directly from Europe” says Margot Humbert, General Manager of Biologique Recherche USA.

The space was specially designed to accommodate the Biologique Recherche treatment protocols. A cozy elegant atmosphere combined with superb technical facilities offers the ultimate experience in holistic beauty. The brand’s blue, white and gold colors make up the interior and furnishings, with an added touch of sophistication that’s pure Biologique Recherche.

The Biologique Recherche Ambassade is open seven days a week from 10 am to 6pm. It is located at 8461 Melrose Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90069.


Biologique Recherche’s methodology is based on over forty years of experience using unique exclusive treatment protocols that are personalized to suit each Skin Instant©.

Suitable for both men and women, the methodology encompasses three fundamental stages:

Stage 1: Assessment Stage

Your Biologique Recherche skin expert will start by undertaking a detailed diagnosis of your skin. Using the Skin Instant© Lab, supplemented by the VisioLab© and a detailed questionnaire, they will define your individual Skin Instant©. This assessment then enables them to recommend a personalized beauty treatment.

Stage 2: Initialization Stage

The treatment protocol begins by preparing your epidermis, which acts as a shield to protect from external aggressions. This rigorous ritual will ready your skin to receive the benefits of your treatment through:

  • Thorough cleansing of your skin, including our exclusive welcoming massage
  • Exfoliating and balancing your skin with our iconic Lotion P50, followed by a customized booster and face mask

Stage 3: Treatment Stage

Products containing the highest concentrations of active ingredients are applied to “re-condition” the epidermis, helping activate its capacity for auto-regeneration:

  • A tailor-made cocktail of precisely targeted, authentic serums is applied by the Biologique Recherche expert
  • The treatment and finishing stage fixes and optimizes the beauty treatment’s efficacy through the use of botanical and marine biological active ingredients, creams and finishing serums to suit your skin type and its needs

These active ingredients work progressively to improve your skin’s elasticity and firmness, defining your face’s natural contours.


The Biologique Recherche products we use in our beauty treatments all follow very specific criteria:

  • Formulas are high in active ingredients and made with fragrance-free natural or biotechnological ingredients
  • To improve the synergistic absorption of active ingredients, the esthetician complements manual stimulation with the use of our Remodeling Face©machine to produce exceptional instant results and long-lasting benefits.

Facial and Body treatments are tailored to the needs of your Skin Instant© by one of our Biologique Recherche experts. The longer your skincare treatment is, the more specific techniques and additional treatments can be added to give you the best experience.

The High-Performance Vegan, Non-Yoxic Hair Products That Work

August 17, 2021

Hairloss Happens and here’s why:

As we age, the anagen (growth) phase can shorten due to decreased levels of IGF-1 and microRNA31. Hair moves into the resting phase more quickly, causing excess shedding and thinning of hair. Also, as we age, our hormone levels change which often results in increased levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which can damage the dermal papillae, resulting in inflammation, reduced circulation and follicle miniaturization.

STRESS & LACK OF SLEEP: Anxiety, fear and poor sleep can cause cortisol levels to spike. Increased cortisol levels can cause hair to prematurely exit the anagen phase and enter into the shedding phase. Cortisol can also trigger proinflammatory cytokines, increase interleukin 1, 6 levels and cause weight gain.

POOR NUTRITION: A diet low in zinc, iron, vitamin A, B6 &12, C, D, E, biotin, folic acid and natural collagen boosters can also lead to hair thinning and loss.

‘DIRTY’ HAIR CARE PRODUCTS & ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION: Use of hair products containing synthetic chemicals, fragrances and silicones can damage & dehydrates hair while blocking pores, irritating the scalp and inhibiting healthy sebum production. Environmental pollution can also cause growth signals to weaken over time.

ENTER VEGAMOUR…. to restore hair growth

There are many factors that can contribute to poor hair health and subsequent hair fallout. Oftentimes, it’s a combination of two or more internal concerns that are further exacerbated by external issues such as environmental pollution or ‘dirty’ hair care and/or styling products.

Hair, like anything else that grows in nature, requires a healthy ecosystem in order to thrive. Therefore, any successful approach to hair concerns requires a holistic (or comprehensive) solution that not only addresses the symptoms of poor hair health (shedding follicles, irritated scalp, damaged cuticles, split ends, toxicology, etc.) but also the underlying causes (hormonal changes, stress, poor sleep, lack of essential vitamins & minerals, UV & environmental pollution as well as all of the horrible things we do to our hair like bleaching, dying, curling , straightening, washing and styling with harmful chemicals).

VEGAMOUR studied the most common causes of our most sensitive hair concerns and developed a truly holistic approach to hair wellness that incorporates powerful phytoactives in clean, vegan supplements, topical serums, hair care & styling products that work in tandem to help address both the symptoms and underlying causes of poor hair health & fallout.

They take an inside-out approach into consideration the health of the entire follicular ecosystem and works to promote a healthy environment for hair to flourish naturally.

The Hair Breakthrough: Karmatin™

Daily hair wellness from a non-toxic, 100% vegan ingredient that leaves hair smooth as glass.

What is Karmatin™?

Karmatin™ is an innovative, encapsulated vegan b-silk™ protein that replaces traditional keratin, a building block that occurs naturally in the hair. Many hair care products contain keratin, an animal protein that rinses away before it can repair damaged hair. But Karmatin™ bonds to the hair, nourishing it instantly for a glass-like feel. A true miracle and the hero ingredient in Vegamour’s shampoos, conditioners & masks, Karmatin™ deeply nourishes, repairs and protects hair from external aggressors like chlorine and sun, and keeps color vibrant without hurting animals or the planet.

Growth Without Compromise

Here’s what is in the formulas.

Synthetic Prostaglandins, Steroids



Isopropyl Cloprostenate



Safe, Vegan Formulas

Their formulas are clean, safe and healthy to use every day. There are no known harmful side effects or long-term health risks associated with anything we put in Vegamour products.

Vegamour products are cruelty-free (Leaping Bunny) and 100% vegan (Vegan Action), so they don’t hurt animals either.

Witness the growth.

Here is how hair works.

We dig deep into the field of molecular biology to create breakthrough processes and high-performance products that have been optimized for maximum efficacy. Each bio-active ingredient is clinically tested and incorporated into each of our formulas at the appropriate levels to achieve optimal benefits.
