Time to Ramp up Your Look for Fall

Posted:
When you go outside, you can feel the cahnge in the air.  Fall is here and summer is already a distant memory.  Sigh....I love summer and everything that goes with it.  So this time of year, I find it really refreshing to change my look a bit.  Or a lot.  Depending on my mood.  When my tan fades, as it always does, I notice my hair color is usually faded too.  This time of year it's always nice to add a bit of warmth to your hair color.  Reds, golds and warm browns can add a nice touch to most skin tones.  Try some highlights or low lights if you're not sure.  I'm sure you'll be back for more.  A glaze can also be a good idea since it's semi permanant and will fade back to your original color if you decide it's not for you.  As Winter slowly creeps up on us, keep your look fresh and exciting because we all know once those Winter blues set in it gets much harder to muster up the energy to venture out to get our hair done.  Besides, with a new look, those Winter blues might have a harder time taking hold!  Keep an eye out on our Facebook page and Instagram for all our specials.  And make sure we have your cell phone number and email address for faster alerts for coming specials.  See you soon for your Fresh Fall Look!!

Is Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner for Me?

Posted:
Have you been thinking about trying that "cleansing conditioner" everyone is talking about?  I'm sure you have.  It's a strange concept, though, right?  No shampooing?  And my hair will be clean?  Well, I was the number one skeptic.  I don't buy into the hype all product lines have with their promises.  Really.  I also always make sure I try the products we get in before I'll sell them to my clients.  So, when we got Matrix Biolage Cleansing Conditioner, I thought , great!  Now I can try this without ordering online and signing up for automatic monthly shipments.  I sat down with all the literature and the products and read all I could.  Sounded interesting.  It comes in four different formulas.  Fine hair, Medium hair, Course hair and Curly hair.  I had my hair "shampooed" with the Medium formula.  Very little lather, but I was used to that after using Morrocan Oil shampoo for so long.  Smelled good, too.  I think we may have used too much just trying to get the same feeling as shampoo, but you won't so just use the 3-5 pumps as suggested on the bottle.  Wash twice if you feel you need it.  It also suggests leaving it in for 5 minutes for the best results.  My opinion?  My hair felt very clean like after I've shampooed it and it blew out beautifully.  I don't use conditioner in my hair very often because I've always felt it made my hair lay flat.  I'm a child of the 80's.  Big Hair?  Yes, Please.  This product did not make my hair lay flat.  It didn't even feel like I had condioner in it like so many conditioners do.  The true test?  The next morning could I get away with not washing my hair?  Absolutely.  Still looked and felt great.  I like to only wash my hair about twice a week.  I can definitely do that with Matrix Biolage Conditioning  Cleanser. So will I recommend this to my clients?  Yes, I will.
