The keratin treatment revolution has finally taken hold.
If you don’t know the benefits of a keratin treatment, you might be missing out.
Whether your hair is colored, highlighted or just plain ole dry, a keratin treatment will help strength and moisturize your hair. The keratin treatment will add a protective layer of protein on your hair and shield you from the elements.
Dayvani came in and has never had color or any other treatment before. Dayvani’s words were, “I never thought my hair could ever look like this!” Dayvani will be returning in a few days to have me throw some lights in her hair.
The next step will be to balayage and brochette some lights behind her hair line so that they will look seamless, modern and sparkle!
Louise came in with dry brittle over processes hair. This is her keratin treatment before and after.
Louise was very unsure about whether or not her hair would ever recover. Her hair had been bleach highlighted, colored over and permed by her last hair stylist.
As you can see, Louise’s keratin treatment has left her hair gleaming.
Her concerns about whether her hair might become more damaged by the treatment were the same concerns many others have. As one can see by her before and after, her hair was restored to the silky smooth asian hair she had before. Needless to say Louise was so pleased with her before and after, she’s prebooked her next appointment.
I recommended a sulfate free shampoo for Louise to maximize the life of her keratin treatment. Another subject I’ll talk about in the near future.
Below is a direct link to a few other keratin treatment before afters.
The Uberliss keratin treatment is formaldehyde and methylene glycol free!
When doing any kind of chemical treatments at the salon, I use only the safest and best color and keratin treatments. Uberliss a formaldehyde and methylene glycol free product. One of the best keratin treatments available today.
One of the nastier ingredients you’ll find listed on the back of any consumer product is formaldehyde. It’s a colorless, strong-smelling chemical.
Say no to formaldehyde.
Formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives (FRP’s) are still used today in a number of cosmetic products to help prevent the growth of bacteria. This will help preserve the shelf life of the product at your expense.
In the case with certain types of keratin treatments, it help’s smooth and lock the hair into place for months on end. But, at your own personal health cost.
As a known carcinogen, formaldehyde has been linked to several types of cancers, as well as numerous other health concerns, including allergic reactions, skin sensitization, eye problems, headaches, and problems with the immune system.
Needless to say, it’s best just to stay away and say no to any products with or producing formaldehyde gas. Go formaldehyde free today! Go Uberliss.

This technique is feathering color into hair. It can be decorative, made to look natural, or all outrageous. This process can be a splashing of color into hair, highlighting in certain areas (sometimes around the face), or just a few peekaboo lights so they appear once in a while when you move your head a certain way. I’ll talk about Peekaboo highlights in a future post.
These highlights, low lights or lights in general can be done several ways.
You can paint them on, board them on, or pick them up and put them in foil to strategically place them where you want to see them exact.
This is one of my favorite ways to color hair. The effects are beautiful.
Next time you feel like experimenting with you hair color, ask about the balayage technique.
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.
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.
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. 🙂
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.
