Pet Safety: The best time to walk your dog in summer

DOG WALK TIPS Gloss and TossSummer safety for walking your dog.

As a Leaping Bunny cruelty free hair care brand, we are committed to NO ANIMAL TESTING AND NO ANIMAL CRUELTY.

During hot weather conditions, it’s important to take certain precautions, make schedule adjustments, and stay informed about our pets’ safety. Many of our colleagues, friends and family have dogs and we know how much dogs love their walks. But dogs also love pleasing their owners. The unfortunate thing here, is that dogs will go on walks even if they’re uncomfortable out of loyalty and love!  As owners, we have to be aware (and kind) when it comes to harsh weather conditions be they hot or cold. So walk your dog in the early morning (most experts agree before 9am) or late at night (after 7pm ideally).  ABC 7 shared some asphalt temperature information as well.

Best shave tips for men – Gloss & Toss Hair & Scalp Healing Oil

hair and scalp healing oil pre shave for men

Pre-shave oils provide the best results for a great shave.  The Gloss & Toss Hair & Scalp Healing oil is an all natural oil for hair and scalp and can be used all over body for smoothing, moisture treatments, manicures/pedicures, and just for him, a pre-shave oil to give you smoother and closer results.

To use:

  • Apply a palm full of Gloss & Toss Hair & Scalp Healing Oil and massage into facial area (or other body part(s)).  Leave on for 2-3 minutes to soften facial hair and to nourish skin prior to shaving.
  • Apply a light exfoliator over oil and gently exfoliate facial area working in round and round motions.  Use added water if needed to keep a smooth application. Exfoliation helps lift facial hair and prepare skin/hair for shaving. Exfoliation helps reduce ingrown hair and irritation, and also gives a closer shave. Exfoliation is used as a method to remove layers of dead skin cells to reveal brighter skin surface and to allow better results in your skin care ritual.
  • Rinse with warm water. Apply shave gel or cream and shave as usual.  For best results and to prevent irritation, always shave with the hair (in the same direction of hair growth) rather than against hair growth.

This simple pre-treatment will leave skin looking and feeling noticeably smoother and brighter.

Also works well for manicures and pedicures, massage treatments, deep conditioning treatments for hair & scalp and more.

Best ways to prevent frizzy hair

Best tips for frizzy hair and ways clients can de-frizz or prevent frizz in their hair styling results?

Well we’re going to share these anti-frizz hair tips with you on another exciting segment with Hallmark’s Home and Family Show featuring our founder Billy Lowe, celebrity hair stylist & national beauty expert.


Frizzy hair happens for many reasons.  Some people have a naturally wavy, coarse or frizzy hair type which can be affected by various weather conditions.  Other times, frizzy hair results come from humidity, over processing, lack of moisture or irregular hair care services at home and in the salon.  In other words, unless you’re wearing a cap or hair covering, it’s going to take some effort, and some products.

HEALTHY HAIR STARTS WITH HEALTHY SCALP!  Our scalp needs care and support

daily nourish duo outside photo

just as our face, hands or other parts of the body.  It needs routine cleansing, exfoliating, and moisture which are all crucial to the vital functions of healthy hair & scalp.  So many clients go 2, 3, 4 days or more without shampooing, relying on Dry Shampoo to get them through yet they stack and pack layers of products into the hair and scalp area to protect the style while sacrificing the overall health of hair & scalp.  Imagine going 2-3 days without washing face or hands. In the Hallmark Home & Family segment we demonstrated an old beauty “show and tell” we’ve seen from many brands. By applying a clear piece of tape to the back of the hands and gently lifting it away, we see layers of dead skin cells.  The same thing happens at the scalp area – and these cells stack one on top of the other if we don’t properly care for our scalp.  Then people wonder why their color fades, why their ends are damaged, or why their hair is frizzy.

Gloss & Toss    SMOOTHING DUO

Smooth hair comes from having smooth strands of hair either naturally or through styling.  The smoother the cuticle layer, the more smooth and glossy hair will look and feel, giving way to gorgeous looking results. Gloss & Toss PREP and Gloss & Toss SHINE serum are the perfect duo for smooth, healthy looking hair!  


100 strokes a day!  This is more than just an old saying.  There are so many benefits to routine brushing which include massaging the scalp, stimulating circulation, detoxing, exfoliating and bringing nourishment and moisture down to the ends of hair which can often be dry and brittle. It’s a relaxing treatment and great for healthy hair & scalp.  Don’t overdo it obviously and be gentle when brushing.

Ease Allergy Symptoms When Using Your Beauty Products

gloss and toss allergy solutions hairspray shieldALLERGIES ARE NOT GOING AWAY; NEITHER ARE BEAUTY PRODUCTS.

Unfortunately, however, many allergy sufferers experience symptoms of allergies on a daily basis and many throughout their lives.  These symptoms can include sneezing, coughing, itchy and watery eyes, runny nose, and the nonstop frustrations of treating or minimizing these symptoms.  In fact, many allergy sufferers experience increasing symptoms as they age, and often relocate to other parts of the country (or world) to ease these symptoms in their living situations.  In addition to weather and seasonal situations, many people are affected by household cleaning items, material types, various food ingredients and certainly health and beauty items.

The dressing rooms at the gym can be crowded especially during peak times.  If you forgot to bring your own hair dryer, there may be a lineup to use the ones provided by the gym facility.  To make matters worse you might just be wrapping up your visit when the dreaded “low on towels” announcement is made.  But never fear, beauty remedies are here.

Save time when you blow-dry your hair!


“If only I could do this at home!”   That’s the cry of every customer leaving the salon chair.  Well consider the facts:  Hair stylists spend hundreds of hours in school studying how to cut, color, and finish your hair style.  They practice at home, on their friends, and even on those funny looking doll heads they receive in their beauty kits from school.  Then on the salon floor, they work tirelessly to perfect that blow-out, to section hair neatly, and to twirl and flip those brushes like utensils in a kitchen.  And while customers may not always get that perfect blow-out at home, there are some great time-saving tips along with product recommendations from the Gloss & Toss  brand that we wanted to share with you in today’s blog graphic.

These products are available by visiting and we hope you love these featured items, and in the time they actually save preparing your hair style.
