Batiste Dry Shampoo Thumbs Up For Photo-Shoots!

Joseph Kellner SalonA very good product too use for fine hair or if you want some volume or too use in between shampoo’s.  Batiste Dry Shampoo is perfect to use between washes.  A quick burst revitalizes hair & removes any excess grease.  Hair feels gorgeously clean & fresh with added body & texture.  But be careful this product will go all over the place, and close you mouth so you won’t breathe the chemical in. That I fined was the only downfall of the hair care product.  If your hair needs volume especially when I do photography in the Florida heat and Humidity. This product will give me the added lift when the hair falls after curling it. Spray at least 6-8 inches away from the scalp.  And if you are a blonde artificially use only the original scent. Some of the sprays come tinted so be careful, the tint is very Matte.  If volume is not required then simply brush out the excess after massaging the product through the hair.   If your hair is artificially treated with tints and dye’s, Batiste will give the hair a break from frequent washing and blow drying that can fade the artificial tint.

Work the product into the hair hair with my fingers like I would if I was washing my hair in the shower. Then let your hair down and spray some at the top back of your head (where a bun would sit) and work it in in the same way. It takes away the greasy look completely and gives your hair some lift. It doesn’t feel like it has tons of product all over it, and it seems to actually look and feel better a couple of hours after applying (because it probably has time to absorb the oil). It doesn’t leave a white “powdery” look like some dry shampoos can.  The more I use Baptiste, the more hairstyles I have been able to do (curls, pulling hair back in different ways, etc) because the texture of the hair (by not traditionally washing it everyday) holds styles better than freshly washed hair.  Great for Photo-Shoots.

Joseph Kellner Photo-shoot Tips Baby Powder Is must!

For those of you who don’t know, dry shampoo is a powder, usually in a spray can, that absorbs oil in your hair and leaves a fresh scent. It gets rid of greasy “second day” hair, adds volume, and makes hair look and smell fresh and clean, minus the need for water.  There are a so many reasons why dry shampoo is amazing. First of all, if you’re blonde, it’s the best for getting rid of greasy hair and even lightening up your roots! Second, it’s perfect if you have damaged hair that you don’t want to shampoo every day. Daily shampooing, blow drying, and styling can stress your hair even more, causing extra damage and breakage. By shampooing only 3-4 times a week and using dry shampoo in between washings, your hair will be less damaged and prone to breakage. Third, it’s perfect if you travel or just wake up late and need to get ready fast. A quick spray and your hair will be good to go, no shower necessary. I always tend to keep a bottle Baby Powder in my makeup and hair kit for my photo-shoots. A lot of women, including myself use baby powder on their hair & scalp between washing’s. How about making colored baby powder for cosmetic purposes. A lot of women with black or very dark hair can’t use it for their hair but want to. And some of the dry sprays will leave your hair tacky and tangled.

When you are working in the Florida sun shine the hair will tend to get greasy, lifeless, no volume in it after awhile when you are shooting. And this will happen very fast with Fine thin and Natural wavy to Curly hair. I like to apply to the hair line and scalp and pull the product through the hair. Then go ahead and restyle. This will soak up a lot of the sweat and oils from the humidity and heat when shooting. Hope you enjoy my tips. JosephKellner.com
