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. 🙂
If you live in an area where there is hard water, chances are you’ve noticed that your hair isn’t in the best of shape. Ask Michael at MJ Hair Designs about the MALIBU BUILD UP TREATMENTS.
This is because minerals such as rust and chlorine build up in your hair, leaving it feeling dry, coarse and dirty. This excess buildup can also cause blondes to take on a brassy hue in their tresses. A good way to remove this buildup and start with a clean slate is by getting a Malibu hair treatment.
MALIBU BUILD UP TREATMENTS are salon treatments. There are also at-home products like Malibu shampoos, conditioners and other hair treatments. The best way to get the most effective Malibu treatment, though, is by visiting a Michael at MJ Hair Designs.
A packet of the Malibu hair treatment consists of granules referred to as a “crystal gels.” These granules are mixed with water and rubbed into the hair. Stylists usually allow the treatments to process under a hair dryer for at least 40 minutes. Make sure that you have at least an hour to spare before getting the MALIBU BUILD UP TREATMENTS , depending on the length and thickness of your hair, processing time can vary.
A Malibu treatment typically will remove excess buildup in your hair caused from hard water, calcium from swimming pools and water softeners. Hard water often contains chlorine and iron, which is what makes lighter hair take on a coppery or brassy hue. If you are a swimmer or use the pool frequently, chlorine and copper can build up in your hair, also causing damage. Copper is what causes light hair to take on a greenish cast. MALIBU BUILD UP TREATMENTS will effectively remove this buildup.
MALIBU BUILD UP TREATMENTS are also great for prepping hair for color, perms and relaxers. Think of each strand of hair as a small hallway. The more people you shove into the hallway, the less room there will be, and eventually, you will run out of space. When there is buildup in the hair, minerals and impurities absorb into the strands, saturating them. As a result, hair color, perms or keratin treatments have less room for the absorption of these products.
MALIBU BUILD UP REMOVING TREATMENTS are applied before a professional hair coloring, perming or keratin treatment. It will remove buildup and make room for these processes.
Frequency of Treatment
Michael at MJ Hair Designs typically recommends that you get a professional Malibu treatment every nine weeks or so, especially if you have color-treated hair. If you are using at-home Malibu treatments, follow the directions on the packaging. Malibu clarifying shampoos and conditioners should be used weekly. Other clarifying shampoos like Neutrogena Clean Volume, Clairol Herbal Essences Clarifying and Avalon Organics Lemon Clarifying shampoos will all work great.
Ever wonder if there’s anyone out there who understands your hair. Biracial hair can be tricky if you don’t find the right hair stylist who knows what products to use or just how to cut it. Michael at MJ Hair Designs understands just perfectly.
Biracial Hair and Going Natural
“Going natural” will be the term used by many African-American men or women who decide to stop chemically processing, or relaxing, their hair. It’s a move that can be fraught with confusion, missteps and sometimes pain, as the 2009 Chris Rock documentary “Good Hair” attested.
Many men and women with Afro-textured hair have not seen it in its unadulterated state since childhood. And even some who are acquainted with the texture of their untreated tresses are not comfortable styling their hair in ways they believe are fashionable and appropriate for them. Figuring out which of the countless hair-care tools and products on the market might work can make the undertaking even more overwhelming.
Tired of expensive, time-consuming salon visits, many would-be “naturals” are searching YouTube for inspiration, instruction and other people who have made peace with their kinks and curls.
Ms. Tapp said that watching videos there inspired her to pick up the camera herself and create a YouTube channel, Natural Chica.
“I thought, ‘Why don’t I just document my own journey to help keep track of what’s working for me?’ ” she said. She hoped others would learn from her. “I wanted to contribute to the wealth of information that’s out there,” Ms. Tapp said.
The project is also adding, modestly, to her personal wealth. The channel’s corresponding blog, NaturalChica.com, attracts enough page views that she has sold advertising: more money, she said, than she would earn with a typical work-study program paying the minimum wage.
There are hundreds of women like Ms. Tapp on YouTube, selling lotions, potions and notions for natural hair, or posting video tutorials about how to achieve the look. Many of them link to CurlyNikki.com, a three-year-old site founded by Alicia Nicole Walton, a psychotherapist who wanted to create a place for women to gather online and chat about their hair issues. Ms. Walton, 28, said she wanted to be an advocate for women who feel social pressure to have their hair straightened. MJ Hair Designs supports this commentary.
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.

To get the most out of your hair conditioner, make sure your hair is thoroughly wet before applying it. The law of physics says that moisture will attract moisture. Your hair and skin are porous and will accept hydration more readily when water is already present. Many moisturizing companies don’t want you to know their dirty little secret. Banking on the ignorance of the general public, the public could go through twice as much hair conditioner before it might truly take effect. Don’t let these companies get away with making you buy twice as much product when you can moisturize far more effectively with less product in the presence of water. Wet your hair well first before you apply your hair conditioner and see the benefits.
