Have you ever heard the saying, "your hair gets used to a shampoo if you use it for long enough”? 

Well, it’s kind of true. It’s not necessarily your hair that gets used to a shampoo or conditioner, it’s your scalp. 

Changing seasons = time for new shampoo & conditioner. 

The humidity, temperature, and your environment, are all factors that should bring about this change. 

 

Ever notice your scalp gets a little red, itchy, or dehydrated during the brutally cold months? That’s because of the lack of moisture in the air and the dry heat blasting every place you step foot in. These environments can lead to a dehydrated scalp and hair. Using something more moisturizing in the winter months is a must! 

 

My go-to in the winter is Davines Love Curl Shampoo & Conditioner. This moisturizing duo is the best not only to give your hair the hydration it needs, but because it contains extract from the Noto Almond. It is super nourishing for hair and scalp. However, if your hair needs a bit more, Davines Quick Fix Circle is amazing. It’s developed with hyaluronic acid to deliver beautiful hair in just three minutes. 

 

Now we're onto the unpredictable weather of the spring...

Whether its rainy, windy, or just a beautiful sunny day, a staple for the spring is Davines Momo Shampoo & Conditioner. 

It’s still a moisturizing shampoo & conditioner, but a lighter weight, so most textures can enjoy it without worrying about being weighed down. 

 

During the summer, UV rays are something to consider. This is when the scalp and hair takes a beating. From the sun, to chlorinated pools, your scalp and hair need EXTRA loving, especially if you're a blonde. Thank goodness Davines has something for all times of the year. The Su line is a perfect addition to your summertime routine. There is a hair & body wash (super convenient, especially if you're a traveler) that is delicate but hydrating for after sun use. Su/hair milk, which is my personal favorite,  is an amazing leave-in conditioner that protects your hair from the suns rays. There is even a hair mask that helps to nourish sun exposed hair, leaving it soft and silky. Did I mention that they all smell amazing.

Back to school season comes so fast, but that also means it’s time to assess your hair & scalp for any damage caused by the summer months. Maybe we didn't put that hat on or use Su Milk to protect our hair, and it just needs to be revived a little. Davines Melu shampoo & conditioner keeps hair healthy and protected from breakage. This duo has lentil seed extract, meaning they contain amino acids that help to rebuild fragile hair. My new favorite to pair with this cleansing system is Cult + King TONIK. Herbal & organic ingredients in this sustainable spray help to moisturize the scalp, hair follicle, and the hair strands themselves. It also has refills which is amazing if you use it as much as I do!

Transition seasons are such a great time to set new hair habits and go for a new look. With Summer coming to a close and fall creeping in, it might be time to think about the next new look.

We can’t wait to see you!

Cult & King, the new kids at the House.

“What’s in this beautiful bottle?”

This is the question we hear so often.

We thought this is a great opportunity to explain why we’ve added to our product collection, and what we like most about Cult & King. While we LOVE Davines, we want to offer a true range of styling options.

It all started with Mallory’s hunt for the perfect air drying product to allow the freedom of lived-in hair for all types. Did this unicorn product exist? Oh yes it did! After testing over seven hair balms, we finally found the one we loved. Knowing that the line was larger, we were offered a testing kit. We all became obsessed.

Clean and Simple, effective products are what we are all about. “All CULT+KING products are formaldehyde-free. Paraben-free. Petroleum-free. Gluten-free. Propylene glycol-free. Synthetic fragrance-free. Phythalate-free. TEA-, DEA and MEA-free. Mineral oil-free. Synthetic dye-free. Coal tar-free. Synthetic detergent-free. Animal testing-free. Green washing-free. The cleanest products on the market. The less chemicals you put in and on your body, the better for you.”

Then comes the green factor, it’s not a secret that caring for the environment is something that matters to us. We fell in love with the mission of Cult & King: “ WE ARE TRULY, MADLY, DEEPLY ANTI-PLASTIC AND STYROFOAM.”

“We need to abandon “throw away” culture, and we need to do it now. Our beautiful oceans are being ruined. Our landfills are overflowing. We make our packaging beautiful in the hopes that you will reuse and repurpose every piece when it’s empty. It’s also recyclable if you choose to discard it. Our glass,  aluminum, bamboo and wood packaging is made to last a lifetime.“

Not to mention they are proud members of One Percent for the Planet™.  That means we contribute 1% of total sales to environmental organizations working to clean up our world. Learn more at onepercentfortheplanet.org.

PLUS! NO ANIMAL TESTING.

Between loving the planet and being chemical free, we couldn’t turn this product down. Turns out they have the absolute best dry shampoo ever created and we can’t live with out it.

Ask your stylist all about Cult & King, we would love to share more with you!!

All the best and Happy Hair,

HAIR THAT GLITTERS...

Sparkle like the sun

Hair Tinsel is the new hair fun!!

OH WHAT FUN!!! Hair Tinsel is all the rage right now.

Hair tinsel is a super fun way to amp up your look without committing to maintaining anything. These hair extensions are hand tied to individual strands of your hair, making them discrete and simple.

They can last anywhere from 2-8 weeks, depending on care, as aggressive brushing or combing can pull them out quicker. Having test run it on my five-year old daughter, I will say that old knots, braids, pool, beach, and ice cream in the hair has not affected them (we put ten in about four weeks ago and three remain).

Hair Tinsel can be curled, blown dried, and styled. They come straight, so if you have curly hair they wont take to your natural curl, but a curling iron can solve that problem. They come in long lengths and can be cut to suit any shape. However, your hair does have to be at least three inches long to receive the service.

Cost for hair tinsel extensions are $5 for ten strands and we book appointments for fifteen minute time slots. Our resident fairy, Sara, is available to bring the magic of sparkles to your locks. Coming in a bunch of super awesome color, hair tinsel extensions add crazy fun, like a magical mermaid or fairy. They can even be added to your hair cut or post color blow dry.

Happy Hair
