We are carrying two AWESOME gift sets.

-The first is from the Australian line Kevin Murphy (first above) and contains the fabulous Angel series of shampoo and conditioner. These products are great for those with fine hair who want quality products that do not weigh their hair down. It contains grapefruit peel oil, hydrolized oat protein, sunflower seed extract, and lavender extract. Its paraben and sulfate free and has tons of antioxidants to avoid color fadeage. As an added bonus, you get the Angel. Masque that is a great way to rehab hair right after a color service or too much heat styling or sun exposure on vacation!

-Our other gift set is from the Italian line, Davines (lower above.) The Love Smoothing set is great for the dry and frizzy hair types. The shampoo uses Indian fig extract to moisturize your hair while olive amphoacetate gently cleanses. Also noteworthy: the softening olive oil peg-7 ester and strengthening rice proteins. The conditioner uses  a targeted combo of silicone-infused moisturizers works to gently whip your hair into shape, borage seed oil protects against breakage, and rice wax helps prevent parched strands. Lastly, the  protective silicone and antioxidant-rich roucou oil helps give the hair and immediate boost of health.

If these sets aren’t suitable, try designing your own gift set! We carry Moroccan Oil, Kevin Murphy, Davines, ¬†Color Proof, some Evo, and some Brazilian Blowout products. Feel free to mix and match a shampoo. conditioner and styling product based on their hair type. We are happy to help guide your choices to best suit the person on your shopping list! We will put all the products in a nice bag and you can add a little tissue and a bow and you are done! Easy peasy!

A Winter of Dry Hair Issues!

beauty-tip-frizzy-hair

 Its that wintery time of year! Being trapped in indoor heat all day and then, braving the cold winds of winter can really do a number on the condition of your hair. If you feel like your hair is starved for moisture and TLC, use some of these tips to rehab it back to health!

  1. Remember, you do NOT have to shampoo every day. You can rinse your hair with warm to hot water to move the oils down the hair shaft. This will allow your hair to coat your hair naturally and to eliminate that greasy feeling at the scalp. Using a dry shampoo also can assist you to eliminate oils between shampoos.
  2. Use appropriate shampoos and conditioners for your hair type. Avoid sulfates and remember thicketr/coarser hair needs extra moisture where finer hair needs lightweight conditioning that won’t weight it down. We are loving Kevin Murphy’s Hydrate.Me series that uses a kakadu plum that add moisture for all textures!
  3.  Apply leave-in conditioner or dry argan oil to the mid-shaft to ends on a daily basis. If you heat style you could make sure to do it twice a day- once before heat styling and once before bed. We recommend Moroccan OilРit is also great for holding color and cutting down on blow dry time those early mornings before work.
  4. Use a satin pillowcase to stop hair frizz from being created while you toss and turn while sleeping. Cotton pillowcases will draw moisture away from your hair and dry it out more.
  5. Avoid high heat tools and blow dryers.¬†A medium setting will take longer but your hair’s condition will not suffer from the shock of being forced to dry/style so quickly. Also, high heat can cause frizz by burning your hairs’ outside cuticle layer which will create a peeling effect. The less frizz you make- the less you have to work to manage it.
  6. Try an at home hair mask of avocado or coconut oil to boost your hairs’ moisture content. If not, we love the Weightless Hydrating Masque from Moroccan Oil.¬†It improves elasticity, shine and manageability and only takes 7 minutes with no heat.

Hopefully these tips will have you feeling better about your hair during the winter freeze!
