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. 🙂

When coloring gray hair, some of my blonde formulas fit best considering the subject. Coloring gray hair has always been the most fun since it’s always the most challenging. But what I do know is once you get the hang of it after as many years as I’ve done it, you can achieve some of the most beautiful results. Whether you’re a blonde or a brunette, gray hair is always fun for me to color.

BARBER STYLIST AND A HAIR COLORIST

Ever caught between liking the way a barber cuts your hair and a stylist styles your hair. Look no more. Michael at MJ Hair Designs is a Barber and Stylist and a Hair Colorist.

Barber/Stylist /Colorist MJ Hair Designs (818) 783-0084

Comb-Over Requirements:

While the length of hair on the sides and neckline can vary, a classic comb-over shouldn’t get too short: Start with a #2 or #3 buzzer setting and work up to a #3 or #4 on top. Work with your hair’s natural shape to determine where you should part it.

How to Style a Comb-Over/Side Part:

1. Start with clean, towel-dried hair.
2. Use a blow dryer on high heat for longer hair if you want added volume.
3. Take a dime-sized amount of styling cream for a looser, casual look, or a water-based pomade it you want more shine and hold. Work the product into your hair, beginning at the roots and starting from the back of the head.
4. For a clean part, run a comb lengthwise from the back of the head to your forehead, then separate the hair. For a messier part, just separate with your fingers.

Barber/Stylist /Colorist MJ Hair Designs (818) 783-0084

The Best Way to Find Your Part

This is a bit more complicated than dressing to the left or the right: It turns out there is a correct side to part your hair on, but it varies from person to person. Feel for your cowlick (the swirl near the crown of your head). If it moves in a clockwise circle, part your hair on the left. If it’s counterclockwise, you should part on the right. Another tip: Parting the hair lower on the head is a good way to create a square shape to your haircut, and it looks good on everyone.

More Men’s Hair Styling Tips

• Be sure to pick a hairstyle that matches your face shape.
• Learn how to properly apply hair product.
• Different stylers—like wax, paste, pomade, or cream—do different things. See where they fall on the Hold vs. Shine hair-styling matrix.

MJ HAIR DESIGNS DEFINES BEAUTY WITH EXPEDIENTE ROJO

MJ Hair Designs Red record Project - Expediente Roho

Yesterday I had the privilege of speaking in front of some of the most beautiful women of the organization Expediente Roho and the Red Record Project. Because the conversation was about beauty and how we all define it, I was taken back by how beautiful these women were inside and out and then realized I had to get on board.

The Red Record Project, collaborates with law enforcement at the local and federal level. It also, organizes community forums, seminars and free workshops. Because these organizations cover domestic violence, child abuse, bullying, hate crimes, human trafficking, and fraud against the elderly, I realized how great they really were covering all these topics.

The organizations the Red Record Project, and  Expediente Rojo also educates neighborhoods, communities and community leaders and gives them the knowledge needed for the prevention of violence and crime in their neighborhoods because we all need to learn.

Please take the time and check out their websites because we all know someone affected. Please donate, give time and pass on the word. We all know at least one person that could use these organizations help.  You could be the one person that make the biggest difference in a persons life.

Thank you!
