About Us


It was just a matter of time before Jessica Barsamian & Louise Rusk got together, both of Scottish decent, both have been in the beauty industry their whole life; Jessica as the CEO of the Belgrade Group, a group of salons in the Northeast US and Louise as former Creative Director and New Product Developer for Rusk Haircare.

When these two women decided to launch a one of a kind, for the future, possible miraculous, all natural, 5 minute pre-shower hair therapy, you could hear women all over the state cheer ‘Its about time lassies!” 

It truly was about time, no more waiting in the shower for 20 minute with a hair mask, these problem solving women wanted something better and they were up for the challenge and so 5 Minute ResQ, pre-shampoo hair therapy was created. Hydrate repair and add shine in just 5 short minutes! All this with a natural, vegan, toxic free formula that lead them on the path to Clean Beauty Happy Hair.

It has always been about how we can help women, help them look good, help them feel good about themselves.

As working women, mothers, daughters, sisters, we are juggling life, like all women, and are constantly looking for ways to make our lives simpler and better. So, it was with that same problem solving attitude that we approached our haircare. We have access to all the latest and greatest haircare lines, but we thought hmmm, how can we make things better? How can we make safe haircare for the future, not the formulas and ingredients that have been around for decades and are harmful to humans.

We knew we could do better for ourselves and for our children. We are women driven by the need to solve problems. 

Helping women live the life they lead, find the balance they desire and have the fun they need to have. Be happy.

We have a common goal:

Understanding that our customers lead full and abundant lives, and their need for clean and effective haircare.

To solve the problems we all struggle with our hair (and our children’s hair)

To inspire women to look and feel great in 5 minutes...saving them time for the good stuff. 

To develop safe toxic free haircare for everyone.

  Take the toxic out of your haircare routine. 
Our mission is to eliminate as many toxins as possible from our beauty products, making them safe for you and your family. Clean beauty means happy hair.


 What is Clean Beauty? Clean beauty is a largely unregulated term, created in response to the limited regulations of the beauty industry, by consumers and companies wanting a choice. In broad terms, clean beauty products are those formulated without ingredients shown to be harmful to human health.


Why is clean beauty important? Up to 60% of what we apply to our skin and hair makes its way into our blood stream, so choosing safe products is an important decision you can make for your health. Consumers are looking for products that are made from ingredients that are safe, non-toxic and have the lowest possible impact on the environment.


What are Toxins? They are ingredients used in hair and beauty products that can cause an allergic reaction on your scalp, more importantly they can be hormone disruptors when used for prolonged periods.


Top 10 Toxins to avoid in your haircare

Sulphates, Silicone, Parabens, Denatured Alcohols, Formaldehyde, Mineral oil, coal tar, synthetic fragrances, Phthalates, Para-Phenylenediamine(PPD)
