Unite Products: Exciting!

I’ve been using the new Unite product line for a few months now. After thorough testing, I find the line is light weight, makes the hair feel luxurious, and looks so shiny and healthy. All I can say is fantastic!

Unite is carried by some of the most popular salons in San Francisco, and no wonder.

  • It is gluten-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, and sodium chloride-free.
  • It is pH-balanced at 5.5, so it will not strip your color or dry out your hair.
  • Unite products are also safe to use after straightening treatments without fear of reversing the results.

My favorite products in the line are:

  • 7SECONDS™ Detangler: It detangles like no body’s business.
  • BLOW&SET™ lotion: Mix it with U Argan Oil before your blowout for a result that’s perfection.
  • LIQUID Dust: The newest product to the hit the salon last week. A weightless and workable elixir that delivers volume, texture and hold like never before. You may use it on wet or dry hair.

PLUS: They also believe in giving back through #uniteinactsofkindness, supporting both children and animals.

I love this line and I’m so excited to be part of the Unite family.

Winter Hair in San Francisco and the Bay Area

Is our winter finally here? I must say this year our Indian Summer lasted far longer than normal.

While other states are already plagued with snow and freezing weather San Francisco has been incredible hot the latest I have ever seen it.

So now that things are going to getter wetter in the next few month let’s talk about best ways to handle your hair.

Is your hair curly? Having curly hair myself, I usually say product, product, product! I can’t stress this enough! Curl enhancing products work wonders for me. Some of my favorite are Redken’s Curvaceous line. Complete with curvaceous shampoo, curvaceous conditioner, curvaceous ringlet, curvaceous full swirl and curvaceous wind up. If you’re on a budget Redken tends to be the most cost effective. It is a bit strong on the scent however which I am not loving.

Prive on the other hand smells just fresh, clean not overbearing. It is a botanical line and it’s French. When it comes to French hair and skin products I tend to be in love. It’s my number one choice. It costs a little more but in my mind worth it.

What’s great about curly hair, you never worry about the weather as long as you’re stocked up on your curl enhancers.

Is your hair straight or has a little bend? Oh boy. You know that you are coming into the most high end maintenance time of year. With the fog, rain and wind, straight hair can get flat and frizzy. I highly recommend Prive relaxing gel to blow and smooth your hair out. It is light not heavy and is the most amazing smoothing gel. Top it off with a little Prive vanishing oil. Besides the all popular Argan oil it also has maracuja oil and brazil nut oil. All to give you smooth and incredible shiny hair. Another great trick for straight hair is not washing it every day. You can put on just a little relaxing gel on your dry hair and blow it dry and smooth it again.

Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays are fast approaching and we can’t wait to do all your haircuts and colors.
