WHY STRAY? STAY LOCAL

When the pandemic hit, Kensey and Cody Decker nearly doubled their retail space to carry everything their dog and cat neighbors would need on a daily basis. Is Rex on a grain-free diet? Does Duchess crave duck liver? This small business is dedicated to getting them the brands and varieties they need. Decker’s Dog + Cat even caters to you. Make your selections in the store, order in advance and pick up curbside, or request home delivery. If they don’t have what you need in stock, special orders are no problem! Stop in soon, say hello, and see what’s new. Decker’s Dog + Cat, 7928 Ivanhoe Ave, La Jolla 858.999.0153 deckerspets.com

REPAIR YOUR HAIR

Finding the right hair products is the key to keeping your hair strong, soft, smooth, and manageable. “Different hair types and textures have different needs,” explains Barbara Iacometti, hairstylist and owner of Details SalonSpa. Barbara swears by Aveda products and carries the full line in her shop. She often prescribes products from Aveda’s new nutriplenish™ line because they come in both light moisture (for fine to medium-dense hair) and deep moisture (for thick hair) formulas. “I’m also seeing excellent results from Aveda’s new botanical repair™ line of products, designed to strengthen hair.” Not sure what’s right for you? Free consultations are available!
