John AntoniouInterview with a chemist...

Greece 1958. John Antoniou emerged from beauty school with degrees in chemistry, biology, and nutrition. He was ready to find his place in the hair care industry. Even though he loved his job and enjoyed creating new looks for his clients, he had a love/hate relationship with hair products.

To John, it all seemed like marketing scams. Whoever had the best advertisement won. He might start out liking a product, but after a few months the results fell short. Products claiming to make hair thick just had a high pH which would only swell the hair causing it to become thick, but not healthy.

In 1970, he moved his family to America. Although he had a lucrative business as a hairdresser and managed his own school, he was confronted with the exact same problems. Not only that, he found that he and the majority of the hairdressers he worked with were having health problems he knew stemmed from working with chemicals on a daily basis. Why couldn't there be a product that came through on all it's promises and was good for the health of client and hairdresser too?

As a hobby, John began experimenting in the basement of his North Carolina home with different ingredients trying to come up with the perfect formula marrying health and beauty into a shampoo for all types of hair. After that success, he ventured on to other shampoos and conditioners, gels and perms. He discovered he couldn't stop creating. Ideas were flooding him even in his sleep.

Then a human error occured that would change his life forever.

In John's salon, one of the hairdressers came to him in a panic. She had just over-processed her client's hair. It was fried beyond repair, falling out and breaking like tissue paper. She begged him to help her. Did he know of anything that could help?

He ran out of the salon and got to his basement as fast as possible where he began mixing ingredients of a new product he had been formulating in his head. When he returned to the salon, he applied the solution to the client's hair. A miracle transpired. The hair stopped breaking and falling out. It was as if the mistake of over-processing never happened. John Antoniou had invented Rezz-a-rect.

Antoniou Ltd. was born.

After a short period, demand for his products increased in the community and he knew he needed to expand from his basement to a warehouse. Excited to have more room to create and quadrupling his hairdressing clientele, word of mouth spread and John found he needed to expand to yet a bigger warehouse where he continues to create amazingly healthy products.

His son Emmanuel has also caught the mixing bug, and helps his father produce and distribute products all over the east coast. Their dream is to spread across the country and eventually the rest of the world.

"Developed with you in mind."

John Antoniou, creator of Antoniou Products, travels between America and Europe visiting family, businesses, and is always in pursuit of new advances in hair care to bring back with him.

In his own words on Antoniou Ltd;

"I decided to make products for hairdressers. Hair products on the market use certain chemicals that might not make a difference to the consumers who use it just once a day, but hairdressers work with products for hours and hours on end. That's harmful and dangerous. I just wanted to help professionals keep their bodies and the environment safe while allowing them to create beautiful styles and passing on beautiful healthy hair to their clients."

John Antoniou's motto is "Do what you love and love what you do."

Jeannie BlankenshipEducator/Marketing...

Jeannie Blankenship, educator, platform artist, and active member of the NC State Board of Cosmetology has been in the hair care business for over forty years.

When John Antoniou first came to her shop, Jeannie didn't have time for him and honestly didn't need to try yet another new product. John persisted and over time Jeannie gave in and tried his Rezz-a-rect. She fell in love with the incredible results and decided to put the rest of his line to the test. The more she worked with the line, the more she loved it. Jeannie was hooked. She immediately invested in his company and became part owner in the business she claims has helped build her career.

Jeannie now markets Antoniou products and is owner of JB Beauty Supply.

What They Say

quote After my hairdresser left bleach on my hair too long (chatting with her friend), my hair was mush. I tried every product I could get my hands on regardless of the price. Nothing worked. After finding your product videos on youtube, I purchased Rezz-a-rect. I used Rezz-a-rect today and I came out of my bathroom crying because in just one single use my hair was restored... Yes!!! Thank you so much for helping me.
