Redken - Hair Tips

Redken - Hair Tips: "Let your haircolor reflect your personality. You choose your clothes to match your personality, so why do not the same with your hair? Let the color and style you choose talk about you—without having to say a word!
Choose a color that enhances your haircut. Get the best total look by having a consultation with your colorist and stylist at the same time.
Pick a color that best compliments your skin tone to help you look and feel healthier and happier.
Create texture with the right haircolor. Smart color placement can help hair look thicker and more voluminous—ideal for fine hair.
Follow seasonal haircolor trends to look trendy and fashionable. A Redken stylist can offer you the latest color combinations inspired by runway looks.
Use haircolor to help you look younger—not only by covering gray, but also through modern color techniques that your Redken stylist offers. Redken’s Color Gels are the way to go when you need to cover gray. The versatile formula can be used for creative color effects, too.
For a subtle change, try Redken Shades EQ. Even if you don’t want to change your color, ask your stylist for a Shades EQ Clear glaze for incredibly shiny results. It allows you to keep your color yet get more shine and excellent conditioning.
Make sure you get a haircolor regimen that is convenient for you. Talk to your stylist about how often you are comfortable with coming back to the salon and he/she can choose the best option for your needs.
Hair color can bring on a big or small change, so choose the option that is right for you. From demi-permanent to permanent, the range of options helps you get exactly what you want.
Don’t let haircolor break your bank! You can achieve a subtle result or a major change with a moderate investment."

Low-lites Hair Color

Low-lites Hair Color: "These are the same as highlights but darker, rather than lighter than your own hair, produced using tints/permanent colour rather than a lightener. Again there are lots of variations on the terminology so just check your hairdresser's definition when you chat about this type of colouring. Colours range from reds to coppers to aubergines and toffees the range is limitless, you can even get adventurous and try several different colours together.
Low lights are also an option if you want to disguise grey hair but not loose it all together. You can choose a colour that is the same as your natural colour and blend out some of your greys as low-lights will cover about 30 to 50% of your hair. As not all of the hair is coloured the re-growth will not be as strong and so only require touch-ups every 8 weeks plus. Remember the more contrasting the colour you chose to your grey hairs the more often it will need to be done."

Redken - Color Extend Shampoo

Redken - Color Extend Shampoo: "Why It Works:
> Provides maximum color security
> Fights the four causes of color change: environmental aggressors, poor cuticle condition, coloraltering minerals, water attack
> Helps shield, stabilize and secure color intensity
> Leaves color-treated hair smooth, manageable and radiant
> Gently cleanses and protects
> Secures color vibrancy
> Leaves hair shiny, manageable and refreshed"

Anti Aging Skin Care Products & Skin Rejuvenation Bioelements: "Advanced Ingredients

So how do we choose what goes in to our products? It’s simple – we seek out the most effective, potent ingredients available. Sometimes they come straight from nature, and sometimes they are born from pure science. Either way, we do not restrict our formulas to one spectrum of ingredient sources. Each formula is developed and bioengineered for optimum performance. Our approach is integrated, responsible, and utilizes the best that scientific research can deliver.

We make sure every ingredient must meet the highest of standards, from organic botanicals and powerful antioxidant vitamins to lab-engineered probiotic actives and time-released retinol. And we only choose ingredients that get the job done – each one is scientifically chosen to deliver results above all else.

In turn, there are some ingredients we’ll never use – like artificial dyes or perfumes. Some say you can identify a Bioelements product without even looking at it, because its fragrance comes purely from nature – and nowhere else. It’s a one-of-a-kind harmony of natural aromatherapist oils that transcends our entire line."
