With more and more hair care products filling the shelves every year it may seem to be much more difficult to narrow down what products are right for you.
Well, with the help of your stylist and knowing what your goals are with your hair, it doesn’t have to be!
At Chromatics Hair & Color Co. we believe the way to perfect style begins with the right questions and knowing yourself. Ask yourself these questions:
Do you want:
A) I don’t care, I just want it clean
B) Volume and Fullness
C) Sleek and Polished
What is the health factor of your locks?
A) Feels good to me!
B) Way too silky, it won’t hold a style at all!
C) Out of control! Dry, Dull or Frizzy
D) DANGER DANGER – I may have some breakage!
If you answered A to these questions looks like you’re pretty low maintenance. Don’t let that trick you that just any shampoo will work. Some over the counter products can lead to dull hair that loses its luster over time. A gentle everyday cleanser is all you need. Paul Mitchell’s Shampoo One is the Perfect Fit! Follow up with Paul Mitchell’s The Detangler for anti static from carotene and instant detangling or even a light leave in like Paul Mitchell’s “The Conditioner” and you’re good to go! Prior to heat styling or air drying I still recommend some kind of styling product to protect, add shine and add a little style. Paul Mitchell’s’ Express Style, Quick Slip is a great choice for a “no product feel” and will even help your hair dry faster so you can get on with your day.
For you men out there you just can’t go wrong with Mitch Double Hitter Sulfate free Shampoo. With a hearty lather and a scent of cedar and agave you’ll never grab your girls shampoo (or that bar of soap) to shampoo with again! Color coded packaging makes Mitch products easy to find: White; Moderate Hold High Shine Yellow; Medium Hold Semi Matte and Red: Maximum Hold Matte finish…. OR if you’re unsure just get the Tea Tree- everyone loves Tea Tree!
If you answered B you probably think that bigger is better and struggle to get the volume you need. Paul Mitchell Extra Body products including Extra Body Daily Shampoo and Daily Rinse are sure to boost texture (while sealing split ends) with a great little dose of panthenol. Panthenol expands your hairs texture sure to give you the boost your looking for. If you’re looking for a more invigorating experience Tea Tree Lemon Sage is another great body and fullness booster: available with Lemon Sage Shampoo, Conditioner and Thickening Spray (Spray the thickener right into your conditioner in the shower to be sure locks don’t limp out!)
For all you that answered C, I feel ya… story of my life! I’ve got that big, fuzzy, curly, afro thing that happens (especially on a humid day) For our category buckle up girls- you’re going to need a complete system of products to battle that beast! lol- for level 1 fuzz busting Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Shampoo and Super Skinny Treatment are a great place to start. Follow up with Super Skinny Serum and Relaxing Balm for control and smoothing. They will even reduce drying time! For level 2 can’t keep it calm kind of hair add in some Heat Seal to lock in that style in any weather (and probably add more serum after hair is dried and styled!) For the High Alert Level 3 Guests (you know who you are cuz you’ve still been drying your hair the whole time you’ve been reading this and you may notice your stylist is trying to regain feeling in her thumb after styling your hair. Honestly this type of hair may be needing many things : Moisture, Protein and More Moisture. Sadly as a level 3 myself I fluxuate between 2-3 different product categories:
2x week Awapuhi Wild Ginger Moisturizing Shampoo, Cream Rinse and Intensive Treatment- These products moisturize, reduce frizz, seal split ends and reduce breakage! Love of my life Awapuhi Wild Ginger Styling Treatment Oil is a must as I can overdose my hair and still not feel greased up
The other 2x week I wash and condition I use products solely for moisture like Tea Tree Lavender Mint Shampoo and Conditioner. It calms down my hair and my mind with it’s delicious scent! And NEW to my shower is Marula- an out of this world luxury system that reduces split ends by 80%, improves condition of hair by 80%, adds 80% more shine and is loaded with powerful antioxidants! P.S Please protect your hair from heat damage! Grab yourself some Hot Off The Press or Seal and Shine so we won’t beg you to cut off more than you want.
