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.

Matrix Socolor Recrafted in time for Fall Hair 2009

Imagine a haircolor that not only  covers grey and creates amazing shades but also provides non-stop conditioning.  MATRIX SOCOLOR RECRAFTED features Cera Oil conditioning complex, which continuously conditions the hair for up to 30 shampoos.  “The polymers and ceramides condition the hair stand during the color process making it smooth, resilient and healthy looking. I have been using and loving Socolor for years and I did not think they could improve upon it.  Wow, did they ever!  With a ColorGrip Dye Technology that stops color from fading, keeps it true to its original tone and covers grey 100 % it is a true miracle.  A light floral scent  is another improvement over very overpowering chemical smell that usually is a trademark of permanent color and all just in  time for your Fall hair and Fall color!

Redken's Do You Shades EQ – Inspiration in Hair Color

Wow, does this article (see below) ever take me back. Do you remember when Sebastian invented Cellophanes? It was one of the first colors that created a lot of shine with a lot of color deposit, and one of my favorite colors ever.

Being a new stylist at the time it was a bit challenging however. Many of the colors where “Hot!” – in the industry meaning on the “unnatural” side. Punk was in then. However if you where not a “punker” and did not want screaming bright hair, it was definitely a problem. So, when Redken came out with Shades EQ, I fell in love. We use Shades EQ in the salon now and it is “perfection every time”. We still also use Sebastian and love it too. Of course it’s not scary any more since we are all seasoned colorists & stylists now.

For more information, be sure to check out the Do You Shades EQ website.

Do you shades EQ – Celebrating 20 Years of Inspiration
Stylists around the world depend on its gentle, no-lift formula to glaze refresh and correct. With every Shades EQ service, they know their clients will end up with healthy, shiny, amazing color. What else would you expect from the “haircolor that thinks it’s a conditioner”.

Amazing Credentials
In 1988, haircolor wasn’t the first thing on stylists minds. Back then, it was all about the “cool factor” of being a great cutter. Companies focused on product and education desighned to cater to younger clients desire for cuts and body waves. Hard to believe but color was thought of as complicated, old fashioned and-frankly-just not hip!

Something had to come along to change things. That something was Shades EQ. Redken Founder Paula Kent Meehan turned what seemed like a limitation into an asset, creating haircolor that was simple, dependable and totally versatile. The EQ represented the equalizing effects on the porosity of the hair, and “conditioning color gloss” let stylists and clients know they’d end up with healthy, gorgeous shine. What’s more, catch names like “TerraCotta” amd “Rocket Fire” helped stylists easily visualize the results they’s get.

For the first time, stylists where empowered to give clients their dream haircolor, and they weren’t afraid to do it, in fact, they were excited about haircolor.

An Inspiring Future
20 years later, that excitement hasn’t faded one bit. Now, with more than 50 shades in 16 tonal families, there’s simply no limit to the possibilities. No wonder stylists vote Shades EQ the #1 long-lasting, no ammonia, demi-permanent haircolor year after year.
