KERATIN HAIR TREATMENT MIRACLE

I’m here to announce the keratin hair treatment miracle today.

The big mystery and question is whether or not your a good candidate for the treatment. The keratin treatment is for everybody!  Whether your hair is straight and just needs a little more luster sheen and shine, whether your hair is curly, frizzy, or needs to be smooth and straight, the keratin hair treatment is for everyone.

I choose Uberliss as my keratin go to treatment, NOT the formaldehyde producing gas agent The Brazilian Blowout. 

Unlike the Brazilian Blowout that uses methylene glycol (the active ingredient in the Brazilian Blowout) , I use Uberliss,  an organic glyoxilic acid.

Uberliss is the end all be all keratin hair treatment. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to feel  silky shinny beautifully hair.  Stop the frizz and start the smooth silky hair. It’s truly a miracle.

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!

SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME

SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME, Best Hair Colorist, Los Angeles, Sherman Oaks, Best Blondes

When I want a stunning bombshell blonde, as a colorist, my go to is SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME!

MJ Hair Designs

(818) 783-0084

This is the most gentle fast, blonde me bleach I’ve ever used. The problem with getting all the yellow and orange out of a blonde is that it will sometimes take reapplication to make that happen. Not with SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME.

SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME is not only fast but will not blow the cuticle to smithereens. You’ll be left with the pale blonde ready for the dp glaze of your choice.

For my glazes I use Redken Shades EQ. Redken has an array of colors to use for a wide variety of choices.

Mind you, just because you get to the right base blonde with SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME, with your next step of glazing, you’re only half way there.

The next process is just as important. Toning, is a delicate dance of finding the right shade or shades for the finishing result.

In this case, I used a Platinum Ice formula after my with a hint of the Cafe Au Lait and a lot of the Crystal Clear after my SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME to slow it down for control.

Enjoy the pictures, and make your appointments today.

pH

The Secret Dangers of Color

Gray Hair It’s Time For You To Go Away

 

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. 🙂

After leaving me and leaving the salon, she walked into her agents office only to be told, “the color wasn’t consistent with the role she landed. I immediately got to work and used the Pravana Hair Color Extractor. Needless to say, I love my job and nailed it.

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
