Dry Shampoo Featured

By on April 26, 2016 in Hair, Products |

Hair: I’ll use some René Furterer Dry Shampoo if I’m wearing my hair down. Essentials: Cashmere wrap and lounge pants from my Rosie for Autograph line, a soft white t-shirt from Paige Denim, and cashmere socks borrowed from my man. I bring my own eats so I can avoid the plane food—usually I’ll pack a paleo wrap with turkey or chicken and salad, as well as nuts and dried fruit. Reading material: Dr. Nigma Talib’s book Younger Skin Starts in the Gut. Entertainment plan: Lately I’ve been catching up on reading or favorite TV shows—this time it was The People v. O.J. Simpson, viewed on my Macbook Air. First order of business: Ask for the biggest bottle of water they can provide and try to drink at least 3–4 liters. I also change straight into comfortable clothes, folding and hanging my airport outfit to avoid any...

Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy FAQ

By on April 25, 2016 in Hair, Keratin |

See also: “Is Our Keratin Complex Treatment for you?” “Seven Time Winner!” “Keratin Treatment: Pre-, During, and Post-Appointment” Q: What is Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy? A: The Smoothing Therapy line is comprised of advanced, in-salon treatments that restore and restructure the hair by infusing a special blend of hydrolyzed keratin deep into the cuticle. The hydrolyzed keratin is bonded to the cuticle with heat from a flat iron to relax the hair’s subcuticle layer, resulting in renewed smoothness and shine. Q: What is the difference between smoothing and straitening/flattening treatments? A: Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy is different. Conventional straighteners or relaxers may break the protein bonds within the hair’s structure, causing each strand to reform into a permanently straight shape.  Keratin Complex’s revolutionary technology does not break the hair’s bonds, instead delivering the versatility of smoother, healthier-looking hair that can be styled wavy or straight as desired. Q: What is the difference between the Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment and Express Blow Out? A: Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment, our signature Smoothing Therapy, was created especially for frizzy, curly texture and is effective on all hair types. It is a revitalizing and rejuvenating treatment that seals keratin into the cuticle to lock out frizz-causing humidity and reduce curl. One treatment gives long-lasting results for up to five months and requires a 72-hour waiting period post-treatment. Our newest Smoothing Therapy, Express Blow Out, is a unique, one-hour service that gives the hair a softer, smoother and silkier texture for up to six weeks. Hair can be washed after just eight hours. Express Blow Out is perfect for all hair types. Q: How much time should be allowed for each client? A: Time should be determined on an individual basis. Keratin Complex recommends an initial consultation with each client to determine hair length, type and texture. As a general rule, please allow a two- to three-hour window for the Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment and a one-hour window for Express Blow Out. Q: What results can be expected after the Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment? A: The hair will be more manageable and easy to style, and will be resistant to humidity. It will feel noticeably softer and silkier, with added life, shine and vibrancy....
