Red Carpet Ready Hair

Published on by

It’s that glamorous time of year again, award show season! When our favorite celebrities strut their stuff down the red carpet, it’s fun for us to recreate some of the hottest looks. One hairstyle that stood out above the rest at the Golden Globes was Reese Witherspoon’s tousled waves. To recreate this look at home we’ve selected a few of our favorite products that will best achieve this style.

First apply Frederic Fekkai Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray throughout dry hair, then apply a small amount of Frederic Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream to the ends of the hair. Next, using a medium round brush and blow drier add extra volume to the roots.  Then wrap 1.5 inch sections of hair around a one inch curling iron using light tension to create loose waves. We suggest T3 Twirl 1 inch Curling Iron. Once you have completed the entire head take pieces of hair at the crown of the head and tease to create a sexy lift. Finish off the look with Frederic Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray and Frederic Fekkai Brilliant Sheer Glossing Shine Mist for shine. Taadah! Now you’re ready to show off your beautiful locks at home!

Frederic Fekkai Protein Rx Reparative Conditioner

Published on by

Our hair needs special attention at times, especially in the cold and dry winter months. Most of us heat style and color treat our hair and the results are usually dry, brittle, or broken hair. Our hair goes through a lot, so it’s important to use the right products that will keep us looking fabulous. Luckily Frederic Fekkai has a reparative conditioner that will help to condition and hydrate your hair, so we can relax a little while this conditioner does all the work.

The Protein Rx Reparative Conditioner is ideal for those of us that blow dry, flat iron relax, or color treat our hair, which is most of us! This miracle in a bottle contains soy and milk proteins which will help to reinforce the hair and smooth out the cuticle. It also contains jojoba and sweet almond protein which will help to promote growth and strengthen the hair, providing more manageability.

The Protein Rx Reparative Conditioner works very quickly, so you don’t need to leave it in but you can if you would like to use it as a deep conditioning solution. Immediately your hair will feel softer and more hydrated. It also works really well for helping to reduce static because it’s extremely hydrating and conditioning to the hair. You can also try the Frederic Fekkai Protein Rx Anti Breakage Treatment Mask and use it with the conditioner for added benefits.

If you are looking for an everyday conditioner or a weekly solution for your stressed hair, the Protein Rx Reparative Conditioner could be your answer!


Oil Treatments for Hair

Published on by

For as long as I can recall oil treatments for healthy shiny hair have been popular. As a teen the old VO5 hot oil treatment was a favorite with my older sisters. Today we have many more options available to us, and I have a new appreciation for the benefits of topical oil treatments. With years of heat abuse from the blow dryer, to the flat iron, to color treatments hair can become brittle to a point where it is literally breaking off and preventing length.

There are many oil solutions available at SkinStore in our hair department. Leading the pack with 9 customer reviews and an average rating of 4.9 out of 5 possible stars is the Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Dry Mist. This oil infuses hair with anti-oxidants and is nutrient rich to help eliminate frizz and protect hair from that damage done through heat styling, plus its color safe. Alterna also offers the Bamboo Smooth Pure Kendi Oil Pure Treatment which is in dropper form and it too banishes frizz, is humidity resistant and safe for color treated hair.

Rene Furterer Complexe 5 Regenerating Plant Extract is another solution that offers over 50% concentration of orange and lavender essential oils to stimulate microcirculation on the scalp, strengthens the hair, and cleans your scalp of unwanted debris.

The final featured product is the Phyto Huile D Ales Intense Hydrating Oil that is a 100% natural botanical solution that provides nourishment and hydration to dry and chemically treated hair.

We offer many more oil treatments for your hair though we have just featured a few. So come on by and check out our hair department if you are looking for any hair care item, chances are, we have it!

The Benefits of Ampoules

Published on by

Ampoules are underused skincare treatments in the industry. A lot of us have used them during a facial, but then forget about the lasting effects they can bring by using them at home. They can target our concerns, provide hydration, promote collagen, and help to restore our skin. Ampoules are stable, hygienic, and sealed until you are ready to use them.

Ampoules, or sometimes called fluids, can be beneficial for all skin types and concerns. They give our skin the necessary boost that it needs after traveling, post skin care procedure,  during dry winters, or after a long hot summer. The Babor skin care line carries fluids that help to boost collagen, calm and hydrate your skin, or provide your skin with essential vitamins and nutrients it needs to stay healthy. You can choose from their collagen booster, distressing fluid, or the multi active vitamin fluid.

Ampoules are also great for whitening teeth! Try GoSmile products and their whitening system ampoules. You can see a noticeable difference in the brightness of your teeth in a short amount of time with no trays or strips needed.

Ampoules are also used for hair to help restore, protect and keep healthy. If you hair needs a little attention and repair, try a hydrating oil treatment by Phyto to smooth out split ends and provide damage control.

The next time your beauty regimen needs a boost, reach for an ampoule to get you the results you are looking for!
