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!

Cocktailing Styling Products

With all the bad weather we have already seen this year, out of complete boredom women start to organize our homes. We all all hate the job and the fact that we have tons of styling products that promise to add volume, curl, bounce, and shine to the hair. Hmmm not so much? Everyone changes their clothes, moisturizers for your skin and eating habits in the winter. Ever thought why don’t we change your stying products? After all the air is different- your hair stands on end from static and those bouncy waves in the summer you had have disappeared. Schwarzkopf osis styling products are inter mixable which we call cocktailing. The osis buff which is a voluming product and the osis thrill (fiber gum) adds texture and hold to the hair. Add these two products to the palms of your hands and emulsify together and you have volume and hold. If you like your hair straight and shiny cocktail osis slick and osis magic. So the next time you buy professional products think outside the box, cocktail year round.

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.
