How to get the most out of your semi?

Screen_Shot_2016-08-02_at_11.35.52_am.png

You have just got your semi done in salon, but are you wondering how to get the most out of it?

I will give you some tips on how to get the longevity you want out of your semi, before it starts to fade on you.

1. Get your semi applied with Olaplex mixed into the colour. This is going to help your colour hold onto your hair for longer as there will be more bonds in the hair for it to hold onto, also helps by evening out your hairs porosity so it doenst leak colour out like a sponge.

2. Dont wash your hair for 3-4 days after your colour. If you wash before this time frame, you will be washing away precious colour molecules, which are still swelling and attaching to the hair shaft in this time frame.

3. Aim to wash your hair no more than once to twice per week, and its extremely important that you only use professional shampoo that we sell in store. All our shampoos and conditioners are sulphate and paraben free, and contain UV filters to help protect from the sun.

4. If you are going to spend any prolonged time out doors, always wear a sun hat, and if you go swimming a swim cap.

5. Dont forget to do your at home olaplex once a week and follow that by a hair masque to keep your hair in top condition.

Remember that your semi permanant colour is designed to fade out gradually, but there is little damage to your hair by using this option, and your hair will thank you for it!

What are the chemicals in my shampoo?

Screen_Shot_2016-07-29_at_3.48.20_pm.png

 

There are many chemicals for hair to avoid these days, many toxic ingredients hiding in plain sight, listed under nice, harmless names. Not thinking about it is, without the question, much easier but you’ll have to agree that knowing which chemicals in hair products to avoid and how to spot harmful hair product is actually much better, not to mention healthier in the long run! So, let’s check out some of the most common of those chemicals:

1. Sodium lauryl sulphate.

Known simply as sulfate or SLS, this harsh soap is what makes your shampoo produce all that foam and bubbles.And while some people think the amount of suds is a very important indicator of quality, I know it’s one of those chemicals for hair to avoid!And now you do too, although I bet that, by now, this pretty much falls under common knowledge.Due to its harsh ingredients, a shampoo containing SLS will probably remove more product buildup, leaving your hair fresh, clean and significantly less oily (because this chemical is also used as an engine degreaser) than before.What you don’t know is that exposing your hair to this chemical actually destroys it in the long run, stripping it off essential oils it needs to stay healthy, breaking down protein and halting healthy hair growth!

 2. DEA and TEA 

Used to bring the pH level down and turn alkaline products into pH neutral, acidic ingredients Triethanolamine or TEA and Diethanolamin or DEA are easily absorbed and can cause many awful illnesses such as cancer or hormonal disruptions.But let’s translate that into hair care and determine why products containing these chemicals should end up on your list of harmful hair products you’ll avoid.Well, first of all, they can cause scalp irritation and even bad allergic reactions and second - they also destroy all the good stuff in your hair (such as keratin) making your hair dry, brittle and lifeless!

3. Parabens

Add Propyl, Methyl and Butyl paraben to your list of chemicals for hair to avoid and your hair will live a much happier, healthier life!Used to prolong shelf life of an average hair care product, these chemicals are known for their toxic nature.

4. Formaldyhyde doners

Chemicals such as Imidazolidinyl and Diazolidinyl Urea as well as many other ingredients of common hair care and personal care products are known for their ability to release formaldehyde, an extremely toxic matter that can seriously mess with your immune system.

5. Synthetic colours

Synthetic colors used to make our shampoos can also lead to cancer, cause allergic reactions, respiratory problems and what not so the next time you decide to go shopping for a new shampoo, think about all those awful chemicals in hair products and opt for a more natural solution.
