Dear clients. If you are looking for something that will help protect your hair from heat and UV rays this summer try the Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil. It will also soften the hair, repair ends, and adds shine to the hair. You can use it on dry or wet.B1G_250x430

Put away that hair drier with ‘Don’t Blow It’ from B&b

B and B has a new creme for your hair called Don’t Blow It to be used on days when you want to avoid heat styling. It is a first-of-its kind product formulated to give you a beautiful air-dried look with a product free feel. This is accomplished by combining polymers with plant-based conditioners that enhance texture and body, producing a lightweight, touchable finish.

To use, simply work into towel-dried hair by squeezing or twisting.

 

Making waves with ‘Surf Infusion’ from B&b

B&b has just added to its Surf product line, Surf Infusion, blending tropical oils and sea salts that together help you create a wavy sea-tossed look with sheen. It can be applied anytime for soft, touchable waves. Excellent for dry and course hair on days when you want to avoid heat styling.

To apply, shake well to blend the salt and oil bi-phase formula, then spray evenly on to damp or dry hair. Focus mainly on the mid-lengths to ends, then style and let dry. For more volume, diffuse the application. Surf Infusion works well together with Surf Spray when that product is applied to the roots.

Tips for thicker hair

Here at Visage Salon we just wanted to share some tips we have picked up along the way towards obtaining Thicker Hair.

If you are looking for a product that helps with a family history of hair loss, you should try to find a product with minoxidil. At Visage we carry Bosley shampoo, conditioner, and thickening treatment that have minoxidil.  We also carry the Bosley oral dietary supplements for women which are recommended for healthy hair.  It is also recommended that you use minoxidil and an oral supplement together.  You can also try to find products that have other ingredients like biotin or silica (a strand strengthener).

Also, since we are a Bumble and Bumble salon we recommend trying the Bb Thickening collection. The Bb Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner are great for a day to day rinse but also you should try the Bb Thickening Hairspray and Bb Full Form Mousse. Both the Bb Thickening Hairspray and Bb Full Form Mousse work best when you put them on wet hair and then blow dry. It really amps up your hair giving it that full blown look.  Have fun!
