Shine Nectar For My Photo-Shoot Model

Over the weekend I had a photo-shoot with a very talented model who came down from Michigan. She had ethnic Hair and I wanted separation and shine to the hair for this photo-shoot. I used Shine Nectar from Jack Winn.  For separation and shine. The product did not weight the hair down at all. Nor did it make it greasy. Very easy to work with. The product had a very light scent to it.  A clean scent. Lovely. Great for styling the hair and for shine.

The makeup for this photo-shoot was MAC Makeup. Location of this photo-shoot was in Orlando, Florida.

Hair Care – Hair Care – Hair Care!

Joseph Kellner

Hair can become dry looking and loose pretty much all shine. Especially when the hair is over colored. Maintaining hair color and also leaving it with shine can be a nightmare. It comes to me working in a salon and the expectations of all clients can be so unreal at times. Photo-shopped photographs are a day in and day out experience and asking for unreal expectations during a one time appointment is shocking. But there will be stylists who cannot say no and will end up in my salon chair doing corrective hair coloring. Here are some tips if you have colored treated hair. Colored treated can and will lose its luster and shine if the hair is overly colored. I recommend to you less peroxide hair coloring THAN WHAT IT NEEDED.

Condition your hair after every shine shampoo. Shampoos weaken the hair’s outer cuticle layer while conditioners help to restore their natural smooth configuration.

Hair needs to be healthy to show its natural luster. The regular use of hair conditioners, shine shampoos and treatments goes a long way toward keeping the luster in your hair

The hair ends are especially prone to a loss of luster. If using a shine shampoo doesn’t help, cutting the hair ends regularly is a very efficient remedy for dull looking ends.

Also avoid stress to your hair structure as much as possible. Hair accessories such as scrunchies and bobby pins can harm the hair structure and dull your hair. Improper brushing or brushing too frequently also reduces the hair’s natural luster and steals the shine shampoo provides.

Use extra-gloss hairspray after styling. Modern styling products contains light-reflecting ingredients and can provide instant luster in conjunction with shiny hair shampoo.

Love, Love Doing Red Hair Color

Red Hair Coloring is one of my favorite to do. For me it is relatively easy to take care of and easy to change. If you are going to wear it doing the summer time make sure to go to the salon at least every two weeks for a color wash to refresh the tone and add shine.  Also make sure you use the right styling products and the right temperatures with your blow dryer, flat-iron and also curling iron.  Washing the hair every other day will also help to hold in the tone and using dry shampoos will be great for in between shampoo’s.

The artificial hair color I used was from KIN.  The client has 100% grey hair and her density is thick and also fine hair. When I do the hair coloring,  I use 25% – 6NN and also a level 6 Red Orange with about 3-4 inches of a level 5 Gold. With a 20 volume developer.  A timer is set for 60 minutes. theN a level 7RR is placed on the shaft and ends of the hair. Which is a demi-permanent formula. The hair is washed clean styled and off she goes. This client comes to me for treatments to the hair color every 2-3 weeks. She is an actress and needs it right for her profession or modelling photo-shoots.

After her hair coloring service I went ahead and did a FAST BLOW DRY from GK. My models hair is also wavy and frizz’s up in the summer humidity here in Orlando. This helps her out a lot.

L’Oreal Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum

Joseph Kellner Salon

Wonderful for home hair care for over processed hair especially with the frailness of the hair. And excellent for all salon hair styling. I have used it for the past 2-3 months and have found out it works great for me. A lot less cheaper than a salon product and works just as well for blow styling. Just use a quarter size on medium to long hair and comb through. Make sure the hair is wet and don’t no use to blow dry on dry hair, or your hair will be very greasy. If you have done that re-shampoo the hair and start over with your hair styling. After the end of my blow drying I like to place a small amount on my fingertip to smooth out any and all fly away hairs. The product has a very nice clean scent to it. And it also makes the hair smooth and shines it up very well.. Thumbs up for me and for salon use! Give it a try!

Homemade Formula’s for Over Processed Hair

Mayonnaise  Has long been used to help dry, brittle and damaged hair. On top of hairstyling tools causing damage, many products—like shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, gel—also contain alcohol which makes dry hair even worse. Surprisingly, it’s the cholesterol in the mayo that helps to soften your hair and reverse damage. Pour a cupful of mayo into a bowl and allow it to sit until it reaches room temperature. Add a few drops of vanilla to the mayo so it smells a little better. Add to the bowl three egg yolks and half a cup of olive oil. Throw 2 bath towels in the dryer to get them hot. Shampoo and condition the hair to get any product build up out! Apply the mixture throughout your entire hair, focusing on the ends. Wrap your head in plastic wrap to seal the mayo mix into your hair. Wrap one hot bath towel around your head for 10 minutes. Switch to the second hot bath towel for another 10 minutes. Rinse the mixture thoroughly out of your hair—if you’re going out, shampoo your hair thoroughly; if not, just rinse the mixture out without shampooing.

Apple Cider Rinse When products and hair chemicals settle on your scalp’s surface, two things happen: they reduce the shine and the mess up your hair’s pH. Hair is just slightly acidic, but most hair products are very alkaline. When product build-up happens, the hair will appear dull, lackluster and damaged. Cleanse your hair and restore its natural pH with an apple cider rinse. Mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with one cup of warm water. Shampoo your hair as normal. While rinsing the shampoo out of your hair, pour the vinegar through your hair as well. Leave the vinegar in your hair for several minutes before rinsing out.

For All Hair Types  The [raw] egg is really the best of all worlds. The yolk, rich in fats and proteins, is naturally moisturizing, while the white, which contains bacteria-eating enzymes, removes unwanted oils. For normal hair, use the entire egg to condition hair; use egg whites only to treat oily hair; use egg yolks only to moisturize dry, brittle hair, Cox says. Use 1/2 cup of whichever egg mixture is appropriate for you and apply to clean, damp hair. If there isn’t enough egg to coat scalp and hair, use more as needed. Leave on for 20 minutes, rinse with cool water (to prevent egg from “cooking”) and shampoo hair. Whole egg and yolks-only treatments can be applied once a month; whites-only treatment can be applied every two weeks.

For Dull Hair Styling products (as well as air pollution) can leave a film that both saps moisture and dulls shine—but dairy products like sour cream and plain yogurt can help reverse this damage. Lactic acid gently strips away dirt while the milk fat moisturizes.  Massage 1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt into damp hair and let sit for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water, followed by cool water, then shampoo hair as you normally would. Treatment can be applied every other week.

For Itchy Scalp To fight flakes—brought on by poor diet, stress and climate, among other factors—try a lemon juice and olive oil mixture in your hair. “The acidity in lemon juice helps rid your scalp of any loose, dry flakes of skin, while the olive oil moisturizes the [newly exposed] skin on your head. Mix 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, 2 Tbsp olive oil and 2 Tbsp water, and massage into damp scalp. Let mixture sit for 20 minutes, then rinse and shampoo hair. Treatment can be applied every other week.

Over Processed Hair Can Be A Simple Fix In Time!

Hair that has been subjected to excessive heat styling or chemical treatments can become over-processed. Strands that are over-processed appear very dry and are prone to breakage. Coloring hair of this type presents a challenge and is best left to a professional. Hair is very porous and will absorb color quickly, however the color generally fades very quickly leaving you with a dull shade that isn’t what you sought and you can kiss all the elasticity down the drain its gone! There are some steps you can take to restore health to damaged hair so that color lasts as it should.

Use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner designed for color-treated hair. Avoid shampooing every day and instead rinse hair with water, condition and re-rinse. This helps your dry strands retain moisture and aids in preventing hair color fadage! Avoid harsh shampoos, such as those designed to remove dandruff from your scalp. Medicated shampoos will further strip the moisture out of your hair, along with removing added hair color. Consider washing your hair with only conditioner for the first few weeks after coloring. Shampoo contains many harsh chemicals that can strip the remaining moisture out of damaged hair. Use conditioner only until the natural oils return to your hair and scalp, and then add shampoo back into your routine.

Avoiding brushing your hair when it’s wet, as this is when hair is weakest and most susceptible to breakage. If you must style your hair while it’s wet, use a wide-toothed comb. This is a big rule everyone make sure before styling the hair to place a leave in conditioner in the hair than comb out from mid shaft to ends!

Use a deep conditioning treatment two to three times a week after you shampoo. Leave the treatment on your hair for at least five minutes after applying it generously from roots to ends. Use an  Olive Oil treatment in your hair twice a week. Apply warm Olive Oil or Almond Oil to damp hair before going to bed and wrapped in a shower cap. In the morning, wash and style as usual, and you will see improved shine and texture!

Hair coloring is something many people choose to do in the comfort of their own homes. Hair damage can occur from using boxed dyes or over-processing hair, even if the hair is thick and healthy to begin with. If you’ve damaged your hair with coloring treatments, there are steps you can take to get your hair back to a healthy, soft state. And most of all leave the job up to a professional when ever-changing or maintaining your hair color.
