Want to Lose the Frizz? Texturize

Personal Ideas Comments Off on Want to Lose the Frizz? Texturize

Which Hair Texturizer Is Right for You?

You asked and we listened. Want shiny, manageable and healthy hair WITH reduced styling time? If so, hair texturizing may be right for you. Read on to learn about Salon Libby’s hair texturizing methods and to select the best option for you. The goal? Healthy, soft, shiny, manageable hair with varying degrees of straightening. 

Remember, hair fibers consist predominantly of keratins, or proteins. Over time, environmental factors like the sun and pollution, continued chemical alterations such as hair coloring and highlighting, poor nutrition, and repeated heat styling deplete the hair of needed proteins to retain hair’s natural integrity and shine, which leads to frizz and dry, damaged hair. 

Hair texturizers combat these issues. The methods we offer provide our guests with healthy, stronger hair—less dryness and breakage—with increased manageability, reduced or eliminated frizz, a noticeable increase in shine, and varying degrees of hair straightening.

This holiday season Salon Libby is offering tiered discounts based on total cost of service provided.

Salon Libby Texturizers:

Brazilian Blowout
The Brazilian Blowout is today’s most popular texturizing system—a Hollywood standard worn by stars such as Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry and Nicole Richie. This texturizer straightens hair temporarily and allows the wearer flexible styling options all while improving hair’s shine, integrity, and manageability. Depending on your mood, hair can be worn wavy or straight. Perfect for all hair types, the Brazilian Blowout method eliminates frizz, adds shine and straightens hair without decreasing volume. The Brazilian Blowout method gives a straighter effect than keratin treatments.

Hair reverts to its natural state in about three months, it washes out. There is no demarcation line, which eliminates the need for retouching. The Brazilian method offers a smooth look without permanently altering the hair. After Care: No waiting time before shampooing or styling. Hair can be colored or highlighted.  

Keratin Treatments
Keratin hair treatments are non-chemical hair smoothing treatments good for any hair type. Remember those proteins? Keratin is the perfect treatment for those looking to switch between curly/wavy and straight hair styles while adding back luster and lost hair integrity due to environmental, styling and chemical damage. Salon Libby uses KeraGreen Keratin & Protein System products; the only protein product on the market that addresses hair loss and restoration, a concern for some keratin users. Our designers are educated in keratin treatments, and we use only the best products available on the market.

Keratin strengthens hair by replacing missing vital natural nutrients. After Care: Guests who receive a keratin treatment should not wash their hair or use ponytails or hairpins for two days following their initial service. Our keratin texturizers last a minimum of three months—provided guests use the recommended maintenance products. Hair can be colored or highlighted while a keratin treatment is present in the hair.

Japanese Hair-Straightening
Japanese method is the perfect choice for those who want a permanently straight look with minimum styling time; it eliminates curl and frizz forever. The Japanese method lasts up to eight months provided guests use sulfate-free professional salon products—preferably organic. Root retouching may be necessary depending on hair type. It is not recommended for guests who like to switch between curly and straight styles. Other chemical services, such as coloring, are allowed with the Japanese straightening method.   

Relaxers
Many people choose relaxers to straighten hair. Over time hair relaxers can damage hair. To help ease the damage relaxers can cause, Salon Libby uses Influence Relaxer. This chemical treatment is a less expensive choice for those who desire straight hair. Requires retouching. Our designers usually recommend a keratin treatment along with a relaxer to seal hair cuticles and leave a smooth finished look.
