It all begins back in 1920 when Henry Meyers came to America with his Dutch parents as an eager, adventuresome young boy. The family came to escape Nazi ownership of their homeland, and to pursue freedom and a better way of life. Henry grew up in Michigan, quickly learning English, and getting very involved in school especially music and sports. But even as a teenager, he was in his uncle’s barber shop cutting hair and just cutting up with everyone who entered the shop. It didn’t take Henry long to purchase his uncle’s barber shop and after running a very successful business for many years, in late 1959, aged almost 50, Henry acquired a small manufacturer in Indianapolis called Kenra Laboratories, which since the late 40s had tried to make its way into the shampoo business. Henry knew what it took to make shampoo and to sell shampoo. He loved every aspect of the business and progressively grew his company as it became known for producing high-quality professional products. Today, Kenra is a worldwide recognised and loved brand and they continue to keep up to date with trends in the industry as well as sticking by their original core values.
Kenra’s products are award-winning, professional and reliable with a community of loyal stylists who swear by them. Kenra has an impressive selection of award-winning hairsprays to suit all of your styling needs, from flexible, light hold to super hold and wind proof. Kenra Platinum is an affordable luxury using the latest ingredients and exclusive technology – the iconic Blow-Dry Spray has received the Stylist Choice Award for Favourite Time-Saving Product and the entire range is cruelty-free!
The brand offers a well thought out website that acts as a one-stop-shop for all your hair care needs, an insightful blog takes you through tips and tricks to tame your mane and there's a salon locator for ease of booking your next premium service. Kenra Products are luxury and you can only purchase them from professional salon retailers only. They fight relentlessly to keep their products out of the hands of unauthorized retailers such as Ebay, big box, groceries and drugstores.
Recently, Kenra Volume 25 won it’s 12th Stylist Choice Award and has won the award for favorite hairspray 13 times at behindthechair.com stylist choice awards. In 2014 Kenra was purchased by Henkel and in 2019 Kenra jumped on board with Alexa and launched its first professional Alexa skill!

My Farewell To Cherie
Follow me on Ig for more skincare since Cherie is leaving 😭 @naturedskinv This has been an amazing journey and I’ve made soo many amazing friends. Thank you for all the love, conversations, and just overall happiness I’ve experienced on this app. I’m definitely sad, a little upset, and a dash of confused, but thank you @cheriefor giving me such an amazing confidence boost and guidance. The way the app shaped my thoughts on skincare has been insane. I’m still willing to forget this and call it a joke if y’all are! 😭 Anyways thank you again and hopefully we can stay in touch 🙏🏾
Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

By adding moisture back in helps fortify your skin and enhances skins’ luminosity. LUMENE - Nordic-C Glow Boost Essence Serum 30ml $12-$25 depends on size and retail. Based with pure artic spring water and two types o hyaluronic acids this serum is super emollient and hydrating. Love love love how gentle this formula is. LUMENE - Nordic C Valo Glow Lumenessence Brightening Beauty Lotion $14-$18 A gorgeous lightweight toning essence with pure artic water, hyaluronic acids and vitamin c rich berry complex. I love that it is gentle and not drying. 🐰 cruelty free and sustainably sourced
Clear skin the gentle way?
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?
Wednesday Wellness 🙏🏾
This past week has been rather hard and long for me. I ultimately decided to get back on track with my wellness plan. My main wellness goal for 2021, is to indulge in myself more. I definitely am a firm believe in “as within, so without”. I started my day with: #Four Sigmatic - Mushroom Elixir Mix with Chaga[products]#[FiveStars] I have been getting back into adaptogen and herbal medicine. What we put into our bodies is just as important as what goes on the outside. Adaptogens are apart of ancient medicinal traditions traced all over the world. I also drink Tulsi “Holy Basil” Tea. If you need a pick me up or emotional boost I highly recommend! SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil is my treatment of choice I used during the day. Do not be afraid to use salicylic acid during the day. I applied plenty of sunscreen afterwards as well! This is a GODSEND for clearing up acne and acne scarring. It’s by far the best acne treatment I’ve tried and its mostly due to the immediate results I get. This is a dry oil, so it should be used before a heavy moisturizer or sunscreen. THE BODY SHOP - Spa of the World Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil is a staple in my night time routine. When I want to relax and really unwind I use a body roller with this oil. It smells like a fresh key lime pie and it’s so hydrating. This is great for firming, especially when paired with a body tool. What do you do for wellness?
