NEW Magic Sleek Smoothing Treatment

Sleek ,Straight Results

WHAT IS MAGIC SLEEK?

Magic Sleek is an all – natural,organic and permanent hair straightening system that can replace Brazilian Treatments, Keratin Treatments and  Japanese Straightening.

It is unique to the hair straightening process in that it is  made up of tannins, Argan Oil Extracts and Amino Acids.

It has been rigorously tested for safety and effectiveness, and containis no harsh chemicals that produce formaldehyde when heat is applied to the treated hair. Ingredients that break down into formaldehyde:

  • Formalin
  • Formic Aldehyde
  • Methenol
  • Methylene Glycol
  • Methylene Oxide
  • Oxomethane

Magic Sleek has none of the health risks or side effects of other products,safe for women of all ages and can be used on bleached hair, ethnic hair, and even virgin hair. Simply by adjusting the technique used, Magic Sleek can be customized  to all different hair types and offer a variety of results. All with the same three-step system, you can achieve a pin-straight look,  straighten the hair while still retaining some  body, or leave the curl in the hair, while completely removing frizz.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Magic Sleek’s main active ingredient is tannin, an element widely used in tanneries to leave leather waterproof, soft, flexible, and unbreakable. Our laboratory managed to synthesize elements from the family of tannins to be used in cosmetic formulations.

Magic Sleek also  contains a natural Argan oil extract, which provides moisture to the hair.

With consideration to the health of ones hair, the pigmentation is purple to provide prevention of an anti-yellow tone of the hair during the thermal process. We achieve a treatment that strengthens and rejuvenates the wires, shields the cuticles, adds softness and shine to the hair, and prevents the action of free radicals that cause premature aging. It also helps to moisturize the scalp and hair, protect the color, and decrease the aggression of other chemical treatments.

In addition to the Tannins and Argan oil,it contains Amino Acids. he hair’s outer surface tissue, or  the cuticle, plays an important role in water retention, and Amino Acids are ingredients that moisturize the cuticles. Hair that is dry and dull shows that the cuticles are badly damaged, due to a decreased amount of Amino Acids. which retain water in the hair. It was found that shampoos, conditioners and treating agents containing certain types of Amino Acids prevent the hair from breaking due to the increase of the water retention capacity.

Magic Sleek acts on peptide bonds rather than sulfur bonds. With Magic Sleek, the hair treated with Amino Acids becomes “soft” and “hydrated.”

In short, our unique combination of Tannins, Argan oil extracts, and Amino Acids are what set Magic Sleek apart from any other hair straightening system on the market today!

As a Professional Haircolorist for over 38 years, I have been using various lines of professional haircolor which recently had not been performing  to the standards I expected.When it comes to  gray coverage, beautiful hues and tones and shine:these are all fundamental needs for my clients.

I have recently switched to Redken Chromatics Zero Ammonia Professional Haircolor Brand.

HOW TO: The Classic Bob With Classic Highlights By Maggie Mulhern October 31, 2014

Here’s a Beautiful and Classic Fall Look for 2014 !!

Ask me how you can get it for your New and Fresh Look!

Stylist/Colorist Heidi Porath (@tampahairstylist), owner of Serendipity Salon and Spa, Tampa, Florida, charged $215 for this classic bob with classic highlights which took about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Here she offers the formulation and application technique

Formulation: 

Mix 5.8 & 6.8 Rusk Deep Shine Pure Pigments with 20 volume “the Chocolate formula”.
Mix Blondor by Wella with 30 volume to lift 3 levels for highlights.

How To:

Step 1: Apply Blondor by Wella blended with 30 volume developer in foil for highlights.  “I used my usual foiling pattern to create the multi dimensional effect. This is achieved by leaving a quarter inch space in between the foils so you can see the chocolate bleeding through.”
Step 2: To the root area apply 5.8 & 6.8 Rusk Deep Shine Pure Pigments mixing equal parts.
Step 3: Apply the same formula to the ends, applying the color between the foils.
Step 4: Process 35 minutes, rinse and shampoo. No toner necessary.

 

3 Dos and 3 Don’ts for Fall Hair by Chandler Rollins,Modern Salon Magazine

Unfortunately summer is coming to an end, but no need to get down. With the fall season ahead, we’re all excitedly to update our wardrobes and hair!

In preparation for the fall season, Jenny Balding, Culter/Redken styling expert, shares her top three do’s and don’ts for updating your clients’ hair care regimen for Fall.

 

3 Hair Don’ts for Fall:

* Stick to the same shampoo and conditioner. “If your client is used to a very moisturizing regimen for summer, you may want to use a lighter shampoo for fall and keep the moisturizing conditioner; this way the  hair won’t feel weighed down as the weather cools down.”

* Overuse hot tools after the summer. “Take care when blow-drying and try to avoid hot tools as much because hair will most likely be a little distressed after the summer months.”

* Avoid color! “Before jumping into a new color trend for fall, keep in mind the condition of your client’s hair and any distress from the summer. The color may only need tweaking rather than a complete overhaul.”

 

3 Hair Dos for Fall:

* Go for a cut. “Trimming right after the summer will prepare your hair for the Fall and remove any damage caused by sun/sea/pool over the summer.”

* Be gentle. “In the fall, hair is susceptible to the most damage following the summer season. Always gently squeeze dry your hair with a towel when it’s wet and never rub as this will rough up cuticle which causes frizz and breakage.”

* Recommend a new look for fall! “This is a fantastic way to start a new season and, in my experience, this is the most popular season for big changes as clients tend to want to revamp after the summer. Go for it!”

 My Tip on this: 

I recommend a good Deep Heat Conditioning Treatment that will help to repair ends that have been dried out from the summer sun,surf and pool. Color correction can be  a consideration if hair has been affected by chlorine, blondes in particular. Ask me to do a general analysis on your “summer ” hair as part of your next appointment!
