We are thrilled to welcome Rachel Nyce back and thank her for bringing the power of plant powered hair care to beautiful Cleveland, Tennessee!  

Rachel has been working with ANTIDOTE Hair Care for years.   

She shares our vision to raise the bar in professional hair care by breaking the paradigm. Professional hair care doesn’t need to be made with harsh ingredients, and nobody needs a roomful of products.  Rachel explains, “ANTIDOTE provides a safe and effective system to provide my guests and myself with a total haircare routine. Not only are the ingredients superfoods for the hair and scalp, they smell AMAZING."


You can find Rachel at Rouge Beauty Lounge, 170 1st St. NE Cleveland, TN 37311

We recently sat down with Rachel to learn more about her and here's what she had to say...

Tell us why holistic beauty is personal for you?

My goal in the salon is to offer my clients as close to a natural, non toxic hair experience as possible. I personally suffer from allergies and eczema, which makes it difficult to work with chemicals and traditional beauty products. Now that I have a baby, I am 1000 times more conscious of what I put in and on my body and hair. I want to feel good knowing what I use to style my hair is safe for me and my baby. I'm excited to offer the same level of comfort to my clients. Being able to offer and support a clean, sustainable, and EWG green rated line gives me confidence behind the chair because I know I'm offering my clients the best! 

How did you get into the beauty industry?

I knew at age 14 that I wanted to be a hair stylist. My stylist at the time was my inspiration. I knew I wanted to work with people and provide them with joy somehow and what better way than provide the joy of fabulous healthy hair! I did go to college first (for Marketing) and upon graduation immediately started hair school and haven't looked back. It was the best decision I have ever made. 

Describe your approach to looking your best?

Beauty is something that is unique to each individual. While we all generally try to "beautify" the same things about ourselves, it is still an individual expression. This is how I approach beauty. Each guest is different....their style...their hobbies...their routines. Beauty has to be tailored to the individual.

Describe your approach to health?

Health is wealth. I've always loved this mantra because it's true. At the end of the day, when everything else fades away we have our family, friends, and our health. It's important be proactive in all areas of our lives to promote health, not just the physical, but the emotional and mental as well. By using ANTIDOTE 1848 and providing it to my guests I know that is one way I can help to promote a healthy lifestyle choice.

Why do you use ANTIDOTE products?

What we use everyday on ourselves is important. In a world full of chemicals and irritants its makes me feel so good to know that ANTIDOTE has our back and can offer us an all natural, plant based, AND locally sourced brand. I feel safe knowing I get to use ANTIDOTE's family of products. I also love the fact that every purchase that my guests and myself makes supports an awesome company. 

What is your favorite ANTIDOTE product?

Do I have to pick just one? I was dreading getting to this question because I haven't tried one that I don't like! I've never had that experience with a brand before. If I HAD to choose just one....I would say the Jojoba Hair Repair Conditioner......and the Ginseng shampoo (I can't get enough of the smell)…..and the Birch Bark Hair Protector. Ok I picked three!

Your favorite vegetable is…

Depends on the time of year but all year round I love to snack on radishes!
