Take 1 For Yourself

Once a week I take a spa shower. A spa shower is all about me, not the norm everyday get in get out shower. First take your mind to “me”. The hair gets a good shampoo and then carefully remove moisture from the hair, apply conditioner from scalp to ends with your fingers, giving the scalp a massage as you work it through your hair. Now you can shave those legs that have gotten the once over through the week. Enjoy peace and you!

If It Was Only That Easy

I don’t understand why we all want our hair to look great but maintenance free. I don’t mind when clients bring in pictures of haircuts. I do mind when the next comment is “I don’t want to have to do anything to it”. Hair is like your skin, it must be cleansed not the plop (plop the shampoo on hair and rinse) and adding essential moisture and keratin. There is a proper way to shampoo hair:

Wet hair thoroughly moving hair side to side using your fingers to raise the hair up off the scalp.

Apply shampoo to palm of hands.

Work shampoo between your hands.

Apply to hair massaging scalp with the pads of your finger tips. Sulfate free shampoos do not lather as much so add more water to the hair.

Rinse hair properly.

Don’t believe? Shampoo your normal way, when you are done feel the lower nape of your hairline. Yup! Shampoo residue. Conditioner makes my hair greasy. Or… my hair is still dry. You must get as much moisture out of your hair before conditioning (remember no plop), finish shower, rinse.

If your stylist cannot prescribe a professional shampoo and conditioner for your hair, J&J can. Our experienced stylist will tell the benefits of our professional hair care lines. Happy shampooing!

Thanks to the J & J Models During the Health Fair

These are two of my long time clients that agreed to be my models for the Health&Beauty Fair. The model with blue lites in her hair, has a natural color of medium blonde. Last year she wanted to go darker and I was hesitant thinking she would look washed out. BAM! As you can see she looked great! Got to Love this profession. For the show, I pre-lightened sections of her hair adding blue and color gloss and then colored the rest of her hair with chocolate shine in the Schwarzkopf line. I also used the chocolate shine in a darker level on my second model and then went back through and foiled some red flame hilites through the top of her hair. Thanks again to everyone who came out to the Health & Beauty Fair.
