Miracle in a Tube

Miracle in a Tube

I recently caved in and tried a new product that Renata, our front desk manager here at Scizzors, swears by. It is our own Smoke Brand makeup BB Cream. It is a multipurpose product that gives just the right amount of coverage and moisture in one quick application. I am a little bit late on this trend, but after the resounding recommendation, I tried it and instantly fell in love. Then I realized that, just maybe, I wasn’t the only one that hadn’t tested the waters of this new trending product.

BB cream stands for Beauty Balm. It is a medium coverage, multi-faceted tinted treatment cream that nourishes, evens tone and helps strengthen and protect skin on contact. Its Age-defying peptides and natural extracts help promote cell regeneration, strengthen elasticity and restore a youthful glow. It covers and treats imperfections, improves elasticity, softens fine lines and wrinkles, re-energizes skin, hydrates, and protects your skin with UV filters.

In short, this stuff does it all and it feels great on your skin while doing it. Not to mention, it comes in three shades that blend flawlessly on any skin tone, so you won’t have a hard time deciphering which color to take home. It is great as a primer under a full coverage foundation, or used alone. I have been getting out of the house ten minutes faster by cutting down on the number of products to apply. I also personally find that this is better for my ageing skin. If you have been battling with foundations because your skin is changing, or you are a busy woman on the go, this versatile cream is certainly worth a try.

This is why you should have clarifying shampoo in your shower

Most people understand the importance of a conditioning mask or moisture treatment at least a couple times a month, but so few people understand that a clarifying shampoo is just as vital to your monthly hair care regimen. There are many reasons and situations that call for a clarifying shampoo, some you may not have even thought of. Let’s lay out some practical uses for this awesome stuff.

1. Give your color services a boost.
Use it before your color service (every time). Using a clarifying shampoo before your color service will remove product build up or minerals to ensure maximum color saturation.

2. Cleanse your pallet.
Use clarifying shampoo to remove minerals from your water, and residue from your haircare products from your hair. Almost everyone can benefit from clearing everything from their hair and starting from scratch once every couple of weeks. Malibu Hard Water Wellness shampoo and conditioner are worth your time and money.

3. Reactivate a favorite regimen that is becoming lack luster.
Has your hair stopped cooperating, or stopped responding to your favorite styling products? It is time to clarify!

4. Get the most out of that new shampoo or styling product that you just picked up.
I always suggest clarifying before starting the use of any new cleansing, styling or conditioning product. You will get a much more accurate read on how your hair responds to it. The last thing you want is to be fighting old product build up when trying a fun new product.

5. It is an ethnic hair staple.
Ethnic hair that is pressed, worn natural, dreaded, or oiled in any way absolutely needs to be clarified at least every other week to keep its luster. Get those old oils out, girl!

6. Stay cool by the pool.
It’s summer time and the living is easy. Unless you’re developing a green tinge. If you find yourself in the pool often, you need to clarify to get that chlorine out. I really like Malibu Swimmers Wellness shampoo and conditioner.

Basically, clarifying shampoo is a much needed deep cleansing reset button for everyone’s locks. That is why everyone should have a bottle of this magical potion in their shower. We at Scizzors Hair Salon suggest Malibu-C’s clarifying lines and KMS Hair Stay Clarify Shampoo.
