Beautiful hair grows from a healthy scalp.


Beautiful hair's best kept secret? A healthy scalp.

The scalp requires the same proper care as the skin: exfoliation, cleansing and moisturizing. Shampooing alone does not cleanse deep enough to rid the scalp of build up from styling products, sebum, pollution and sweat. Over time, this build up can clog hair follicles causing inflammation and itchiness and eventually may lead to hair loss. It is critical to detoxify the scalp and remove impurities for beautiful, healthy hair. At Rene Furterer, this revolutionary concept was discovered by a visionary long ago.


Rene Furterer’s story takes root in Provence, France. Influenced by his grandmother, he became fascinated with botany at a very young age.

Aware of the richness of flora and its fragrances, this visionary young hairdresser observed nature and deep-seated belief was born in him: the beauty of hair is inspired by that of plants. He understood that a head of hair flourishes from a scalp that is cared for, just as plants grow best in fertile, managed soil. He thus developed a method of scalp treatments and massages that would revolutionize hair care. All of his treatments were formulated from 100% natural essential oils and plant extracts, carefully selected for their specific medicinal and aromatic values. These beliefs were the foundation for developing in-salon scalp rituals.

Caring for Your Scalp Type

Normal Scalp

A normal scalp has the same color as the skin, has no scales on the scalp or around hairs and are arranged in bundles of two or three hairs from the same hair follicle.

In order to maintain a healthy scalp and beautiful hair, it’s important to incorporate a scalp treatment into your weekly hair care routine.
