Trying new products for color treated hair is important to me. And keeping a revolving product line for my clients is also very important. Using the same products over and over at the salon or at home will leave a build-up on the scalp and hair. It is good to change all your hair care tools all the time.
I have since tried the Shea Moisture product line often on my clients and have found out it works beautifully for highlighted hair. Especially for fine to medium types of hair textures. Styling lotions are important for the blow-out of hair styling for the client and I personally do not like to use a lot of products on the hair. I feel the hair design is very important.
So a month ago I tired the Shea Moisture Styling Lotion and it worked great for my clients.
This precious oil based lotion protects while restoring moisture and lustrous shine to dull, damaged or chemically processed hair. Nutrient-rich Jamaican Black Castor Oil, certified organic Shea Butter and invigorating Peppermint combine in an ultra-moisturizing formula to protect against the damaging effects of high heat styling, while increasing hair’s resistance to breakage.
I applied a quarter sized amount in my hands and applied it to my clients hair, and combed the product throughout with a wide tooth comb. I gave her a blow-out and curled the hair and it did a very good job. Leaving the hair very soft.
When you have clients with high-lift hair-color the hair is very fragile so protection is needed. Stay away from protein based styling products and shampoo’s and conditioners for the hair. It will make the hair fragile and dry. Use moisture based products. Give this product a try at home or recommend it to your stylist. Shea Moisture.
Every Friday in the salon after 3:00 in the afternoon, I have a promotion called, “Bring Your Black Dress And I Will Do The Rest:. This promotion is for the lady’s who will be going out to Black Tie, Private Party’s, and Charity Events.
The client will come in with their gowns or dress’ and I will style or set and do their make up. It is quit popular and allows me to try out different formula’s for the setting or styling of the hair. And also new and popular makeup products. Very popular service, which we have extended to Saturdays after 3:00 in the afternoon. The last few weeks I have been using a formula with KIN Cosmetics which has given me success. I have taken a quarter size of the KINSTYLE GELLIN with a quarter size of the KINSTYLE POTION CREAM and WELLAH! I have achieve a sculpting lotion similar to the Paul Mitchel sculpting lotion when it first came out. Excellent hold and will not leave the hair rough or dry feeling. If you are setting the hair you will bet a lot of volume and the wave will stay in for a long time. This product formulation will compliment the hair design. This is a great setting formula and also for everyday blow drying the hair. I have used the Potion Creme by itself and I was not so convinced about it on fine hair, and a tip don’t get it near the roots. Just the mid shaft and ends. Potion Creme will give you a soft feel and a decent finish but adding the two products together is a winner. I am not really one to add and add products to a finish. I believe a lot of your work should be in the hair design, if the design is accurate then you will not need a lot of finishing products. But these two products together and you have hit a Grand Slam. Also when you add the irons to the hair you will see tremendous shine.
