Designers as Texture Teachers ~ Hair as Fabric

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in The Chic Geek, Uncategorized

The Chic Geek by Nikki ~ Product Education Director

Have you ever had a guest bring in a photo of a hairstyle that simply does not match up with their own hair texture?  Yes, of course!  We all have.  But this seemingly negative starting point is actually a great opportunity to build trust with the guest, educate products, and give the guest a beautiful style!

Philip often says “Hair is the most important fabric we wear.  We wear our hair every day!”  There is so much to this statement but in relation texture we can use this as a teachable moment for the guest.  Guests are at times not aware of how their hair density and texture effects the outcome of their style.  They are also often unaware of how products, including shampoo, conditioner, and styling products, along with the guidance of their Philip Pelusi Designer, can augment or enhance their texture to get the style they want.

Try this simple analogy…  Guests are often aware of clothing fabrics so using the following comparisons may help guests understand their own texture.  Fine hair is often akin to silk, Medium textures to cotton, and Coarser hair types to denim.  For example, a guest with fine silky limp hair might then understand if they apply P2 Increase Smart Styling Treatment, it will give them more structure and volume.

While coarse bulky denim-like hair can be made to feel silky and softer when cleansed and conditioned with P2 MoistureSheen and styled with P2 Potion for example, thus making the hair look and perform much better. These are not negative connotations just simply another tool to help guests understand where their hair is now and how they can achieve where they want their hairstyle to go!

Say WHAT?!?!  Water in P2 Xtreme?!  But WHY? 

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in The Chic Geek, Uncategorized

The Chic Geek by Nikki B. ~ Product Education Director

Why does P2 Xtreme contain a little bit of the finest water, known as Triple Distilled Water?  This formula needs that little bit of water to stay in solution and penetrate the hair most effectively.

This is also why the hair must be damp for this totally unique product to penetrate effectively.  But FYI the hair-effective ingredients in P2 Xtreme account for about 98% of the formula so the formula is “xtremely” concentrated! 

And one last note…Triple Distilled Water is the finest and most expensive water, containing no icons, no chemicals, no minerals.  This makes the formula more precise with great results!

The Chic Geek ~ Tela Magic ~ Airless Pump Magic

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in The Chic Geek, Uncategorized

by Nikki ~ Product Education Director

Another amazing feature of Tela Magic is that it comes in an airless pump package.  This means the container requires no air intake to dispense the product.  No air gets into the bottle therefore no air contacts the actual product.  So why is this a benefit?  It helps preserve the life of the product by keeping air out.  Let’s look at the big picture…

Keeping formulas fresh has always been a priority at Philip Pelusi.  Philip uses only a small amount of a safe preservative system, enough to keep his formulas fresh while never interfering with the formula’s performance or safety.  Each formula is delicately balanced.  This can be challenging with certain formulas that contain so many organic ingredients such as Tela Magic, Color Lock+ and Cashmere.  So, they are bottled in airless pump packaging.

But not every Philip Pelusi product comes in an airless pump.  Why?  Because not every product needs to be in airless pump packaging for preservation and because not every product can easily dispense from an airless pump.  All Philip Pelusi formulas have a very long life, generally 3 – 5 years after they are opened and 7 years unopened.  Especially when products are stored in a room temperature environment with the lid on or the cap closed.

Also, an airless pump doesn’t leave any of the product unused.  A plate pushes, or “lifts” the product up from the bottom of the bottle until it is all completely dispensed.  And it is an environmentally friendly package as is all Philip Pelusi packaging.

by Nikki ~ Product Education Director

Also in the Tela Magic mix is our gold standard Hydro Charged Pelusi Ceramide Complex.  This is a non-texture specific mixture of plant derived ceramides that mimic the ceramides found in between cuticle layers, helping seal each cuticle layer to each other and to the cortex.  This proprietary complex strengthens, hydrates, helps protect color and creates shine.

You can literally see the incredible results in these before and after images of a magnified hair strand! The “after” image shows a much smoother cuticle layer!  This means stronger, shiner, more color protected hair.

Chic Geek ~ Tela Magic Transformative Ingredient ~ Hydroxypropyl Gluconamide

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in The Chic Geek, Uncategorized

by Nikki ~ Product Education Director

Philip added some big tech to Tela Magic!  This is where science meets nature, enabling us to significantly improve the internal structure of the hair and do what we believe also meets today’s marketplace needs by combining technology into a product with over-the-top organic cache. 

Next, he added the patented chemistry of Hydroxypropyl Gluconamide to Tela Magic.  This natural origin bond multiplier strengthens damaged hair fiber three times more than untreated hair.

As we know, damaged hair has compromised or broken bonds and links. Hydroxypropyl Gluconamide rejuvenates damaged hair back to the levels of virgin hair working deep into the cortex to create new hydrogen and ionic bonds.  Helping hair look, feel, and perform like healthy virgin hair.  The cherry on top of this incredible ingredient is that it has a good sustainability footprint.

This image shows the cross section of several hair strands before and after they have been treated.  The “after” image shows the intense penetration of this ingredient into the hair fiber, evidenced by an almost 100% penetration level.

Chic Geek ~ Tela Magic Transformative Ingredient ~ Hexapeptide-11

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in The Chic Geek, Uncategorized

by Nikki ~ Product Education Director

Philip added some big tech to Tela Magic!  This is where science meets nature, enabling us to significantly improve the internal structure of the hair and do what we believe also meets today’s marketplace needs by combining technology into a product with over-the-top organic cache. 

We know as we age, hair loss occurs due to the reduction of the anagen or active growing cycle phase of hair growth in the internal hair bulb.  Hexapeptide-11, a bio fermented peptide, helps improve collagen production in the hair bulb.

This improves follicle integrity and health resulting in a reduction in hair loss, an increase the size and smoothness of the hair bulb while providing anti-inflammatory properties and preserving antioxidant activity. Plus, it helps improve skin elasticity.
