SALON CLIENTS

MJ Hair Designs, Keratin Treatment Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles

Recently I received an unsolicited text from a salon client who was reporting to me how much she liked the keratin treatment she had just had.

Clients sometimes take for granted the emotional energy we hair stylists put into not only making sure their hair looks good, but always satisfied with the customer service they receive when they visit the salon.

Emily, a fairly new salon client was sweet enough to send me a text about how quickly and easily her has has been to take care of since her Uberliss keratin treatment.

 

I just want to say, it means a great deal that she took the time to not only drop me the message, but include pictures of what her hair was looking like so that I may keep track of my notes for the next time she comes in.

Thank you Emily!

And to all my salon clients, thank you for taking the time to let us know how we’re doing.

Always  making sure I have the best and safest products, research is one of my passions. Finding out about the ingredients in the products I use is key.  The quality of the products I use is and always will be my  top priority.

In the age of today’s ingredients, vetting the products should always be a must. Scrutinizing them should be number one. The degradation of ingredients in the products available are more harmful than ever.

It’s up to me to make sure salon clients always get the best and are not subjected to unnecessary toxicity.

We’re really interested in making  sure that you’re not only happy and coming back, but proud to refer your friends and family so that they too  become our new salon clients, friends and family.

Thank you!

pH HAIR SKIN

hair colorist, ph hair color, sherman oaks, los angeles hair stylist, salon, hair color specialist

Have you ever wondered what the pH of the hair color your colorist is using?

PH is a number measurement of  the acidity or alkalinity of a product.

Whether it be the milk your have in your cereal in the morning, or the mask you put on your face at night, they all have a pH number rating. The scale tips from  1 -14.  1 acid,  7 neutral, and 14 the highest number in alkalinity.

The pH of your skin is usually at 5.5 and is slightly acidic.

Make sure if your colorist is using a permanent color or, bleach to color your hair, find out how high or low on the pH scale it is.  Most companies will have different pH balances depending it’s acidity or alkalinity.

Permanent hair color can reach an alkalinity as high as 11.0. This will not be the best for the health of your hair, but may land you the color you want and not thrash your hair if it’s thick with lots of cuticle.

Whether it be your hair care or skin care, try and make sure the pH is as close to the number the pH is of your skin. Anything too alkaline or to acidic could ruin your hair or damage your skin.

So the next time you’re in the chair at the salon, ask your hair colorist what the pH of the color is that they’re using. If they don’t know, call me and make an appointment. 🙂

LONG HAIR COLOR BALAYAGE

Long hair balayage, mjhairdesigns, hair color specialist, hair color expert

Ever wonder what it might be like to have long hair color balayage? Coloring your long hair is a major risk if you don’t have the right person doing it. It could take years for your hair to recover from the wrong person coloring it.

In all the years I’ve been doing hair, I’ve seen many hair colorists who just don’t get it. Some hair colorists go to far with color, and some don’t go far enough.

Here’s an example of a young lady with super dark long hair who wanted something a little more decorative in style and color.  When she first approached me with the idea of putting in some highlights, I balked at the idea knowing this could be a risky affair with such dark hair.  But who better than myself to throw some color into her life and some hair color balayage into her long hair. Although I loved the color of her hair, I sensed this  young lady was just trying to be different. I’d rather be the one doing her hair than knowing some inexperienced person who might ruin her hair for a long time to come. 

When she first came to me, I noticed the old orangey ends that someone never brought up light enough to the right level to get her away from the brass. She had been permanently stained for a long time.

I immediately got to work on this gorgeous super long hair that demanded total care every step of the way. With a couple of different processes, not only was the color beautiful when I got done, but the integrity of her hair had never been compromised.

Take a look at her before and after.

AMMONIA, PPD AND RESORCINOL FREE CØR.color THE GENTLE PERMANENT HAIR COLOR

PPD free, Ammonia free, Resorcinol free, Clean Color Technology, O&M, The Original Mineral, MJ Hair Designs, mjhairdesigns, hair colorist los angeles, salons

O&M CØR is the next generation in Ammonia, PPD and Resorcinol-free professional hair color.

I stumble across CØR.color this year and was flabbergasted by this toxic free hair color and as a result I am currently moving all my clients to this amazing hair coloring.

It’s called CØR because color is the core of the brand.

By the way,  Ø at the heart represents their commitment to making the cleanest color in the world by eliminating harsh chemicals.

Ammonia a is typically used to swell the hair and open the cuticle scales to allow color to penetrate deep within the cortex. Yes, for anyone with sensitive skin or scalp, this could be an unhealthy additive. They’ve replaced it with MEA.  MEA is an alkalizing agent that mimics the role of Ammonia, minus the odor, irritation, and cuticle damage.

PPD (Paraphenylenediamine) is a chemical know to cause dermatitis, reddening and swelling of the scalp and face. They’ve replaced it with low levels of PTDS (p-Toluendiamine Sulfate). PRDS enables up to 50% of PPD allergic stylists and clients to now use color.

Resorcinol is a popular coloring agent toxic to wildlife and the human immune system. Shade dependent, they’ve replaced it with 2-Methylresorcinol or 4-Chlororesorcinol . The two chemicals are kinder to the environment and promote less potential to sensitize.

Needless to say, I am moving all my clients this line because not only is it safe and has 100 beautiful shades, it covers gray and is as gentle a color can be.

Thank you O&M CØR.color

COLOR WHEEL

Color Wheel, Colour Chart

When it comes to coloring hair, one of the biggest tools a hair colorist can use is a color wheel. The color wheel helps hone in and target a shade that the hair color specialist can either want to neutralize or emphasize.

Primary colors are red yellow and blue are the basic colors and cannot be made by mixing other colors. These are the colors that matter the most when coloring hair. The bases of these colors make up all the other colors.

Secondary colors and made by mixing two primary colors.

Tertiary colors are made by mixing one primary with one adjacent secondary color

Warm colors are advancing colors and Cool colors are receding.

When it comes to coloring your hair, make sure your hair colorist understand the color of law. And yes, make sure he or she owns a color wheel.

AMMONIA-FREE HAIR COLOR – CØR.color

Hair Colorist MJ Hair Designs and Ammonia-Free CØR.color
Oh, ammonia!  It may be fine for cleaning-up around your house but not for your hair.  The time has come for ammonia-free hair color and you’ve come to the right place to find out about why that’s so important.  O&M CØR.color is the next generation in ammonia-free hair color.  They call it CØR because clean color is at the core of what makes their hair-color line better for your hair’s strength and good health.
This new hair-coloring technique didn’t just come about overnight.  It took years of research, along with real-life in-salon testing to make coloring your hair such a clean, ammonia-free and risk-free process.  O&M wanted to make sure they got it right with CØR.color.  Their revolutionary new system guarantees super coverage of graying hair, while minimizing scalp irritation.  How’d they do it?  Well, it took some doing but but I’m really impressed with the way they pulled it off.
For starters, O&M removed the common scalp-irritating ingredients that were once common in so many hair-coloring products of the past.  The biggest culprit?  It was ammonia.  From the CØR line, the ammonia is gone!  But they didn’t stop there.  CØR.color uses no PPDs, no Resorcinol, no Gluten or soy, and no animal-product ingredients, either.  That’s right, O&M CØR.color is good for your hair and for the environment.
I’m thrilled to be adding the CØR.color line to my color palette at the salon.  In fact, I’ve used it on a few of my clients and, I’m happy to say, RAVE reviews are already coming in.  Reviews like these.
M. Popkin Kline says, “I’ve never had hair-color cover 101% of my grey, and give my hair so much vibrancy, while keeping it smooth-to-the-touch, looking really healthy and shiny!”  D. F. confesses she’s been allergic to just about everything.  She’d not been able to find a hair-color system that didn’t literally make her sick.  She’s a true believer now and is happy to say, CØR.color was the color system that saved her hair!
When it comes to coloring your hair, these days, it’s all about CLEAN!  Consumers are constantly looking for pure, more natural, high performance hair-care products, giving you clean, ammonia-free color.  Well, they can stop looking.  Out with the ammonia!  CØR.color really is the clean, irritant-free answer to those hair-coloring problems you may have had in the past.  You won’t find O&M CØR.color line just anywhere.  But you can find it when you visit me at the salon.
So come on in and let me show you the clean, ammonia-free solution to coloring your hair!
