Trend Alert ~ Cashmere Blonde

Posted on Posted in Trend Alerts

Trend Alert ~ Cashmere Blonde ~ by Nikki ~ Product Education Director

Fall temperatures bring a mix of warm and cool and so does one of this season’s most popular hair color trends, Cashmere Blonde!  Think warm buttery vanilla hues mixed with icy cool shimmering tones.  Colorations should be in varying depths to give the hair lots of dimension.  And most importantly hair needs to have the luxe look of cashmere, high-end, glossy and healthy looking!

For all color investments, in addition to a full Philip Pelusi product system, we also recommend our Tela Beauty Organics by Philip Pelusi Color Lock+.  Think of it as a color insurance policy.  Apply to the hair both in the actual color formula for the service but also as part of the guests at home regular conditioning regimen by mixing it into their Philip Pelusi deep or instant conditioner.

Tela Color Lock+ contains a totally unique set of ingredients with its cornerstone our Tela Fiber Restore Pelusi Plex.  This proprietary blend works like no other color protectant on the marketplace.  Healthy, non-chemically or non-color treated hair has a natural shield around it that protects hair from fadage, moisture loss and to some degree heat damage.  But once hair has been chemically or color treated, this shield breaks down.

This weakened hair cuticle cannot block damaging stressors such as heat, UV light, aging and the environment.  This allows the internal hair structure to be compromised, leaving internal bonds, or links, to be further broken or damaged.  This also means hair looks and performs like compromised or damaged hair.  It loses luster, color molecules, feels rough and dry, and does not style well.

Fiber Restore Pelusi Plex helps restore this shield as it strengthens hair’s internal structure up to three times more than that of untreated hair.  Its small molecular structure is designed to penetrate deeply into the cortex creating new bonds that help strengthen, enhancing shine and performance similar to levels in virgin hair.  Not permanently, nothing can do that, but with repeated use Tela Color Lock+ creates an environment for the hair to act, look and perform like healthy hair.

Fiber Restore Pelusi Plex acts to buffer the oxidative residues left behind after of the hair color application meaning there is less damage during processing.  And since water is the #1 color fader, Fiber Restore Pelusi Plex also helps protect color treated hair from surfactant or water stripping, significantly reduces leakage of color molecules during and after shampooing.

Summer Solution ~ Easy On The Go “Lite” Hair Hydration

Posted on Posted in Trend Alerts

Summer Solution ~ Easy On The Go “Lite” Hair Hydration by Nikki ~ Product Education Director

Summer weather calls for easy, breezy, low maintenance clothes, sandals, and hairstyles.  This means easy to use, on the go hair products too!  One very often unsung hair hero is our P2 by Philip Pelusi Lite Leave-in Conditioner, and it fits the bill perfectly for summertime hair!

P2 Lite is an instant, lightweight leave in version of P2 Deep.  It certainly doesn’t replace P2 Deep, but it is the perfect partner and in between hydration boost summer hair needs.  A small dose of Hyaluronic Acid makes it an excellent multitask leave-in!  UV Rays, chlorine and salt water all drain hair of moisture and chip away at hair’s strength.  Hair needs constant reinforcement and protection to keep hair’s condition and color investment looking great!

P2 Lite can be applied to damp hair prior to any styling products for an extra boost of moisture and detangling.  It can also be used as a standalone instant conditioner for short cuts and finer, shorter sparser hair types.   But the big summertime benefit comes from P2 Lite’s ability to be applied to any dry hair for on-the-spot light hydration as well as touch ups and restyling throughout the day.

Mist onto any texture hair and comb or scrunch through.  It airdries beautifully.  P2 Lite also detangles, helps control frizz, protect color, and create shine.  Please note that P2 Lite does dampen the hair so if texture reversion is concern, try P2 RefresHair for touchups and restyling.

Summer Solution ~ Sunshine Post Care Hydration

Posted on Posted in Trend Alerts

Summer Solution ~ Sunshine Post Care Hydration by Nikki ~ Product Education Director

Just like our skin, our hair and scalp need post-sun hydration!  Sun, chlorine, and salt water zap moisture from the hair and scalp, so restoring that moisture level is critical to maintaining healthy looking hair, protecting hair color and shine.

image source curlcentric

P2 by Philip Pelusi Deep Hydrating Hair and Scalp Conditioner to the rescue!  Containing the powerful skin care humectant Hyaluronic Acid, P2 Deep deeply rehydrates hair and scalp.  Hyaluronic Acid, which can hold up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water, naturally draws and bind moisture to whatever surface it is on.  And of course, at Philip Pelusi, we only use plant derived sources of Hyaluronic Acid.

P2 Deep Hydrating Hair and Scalp Treatment helps restore and hold with effects lasting for several days to a week depending on how dry the hair and scalp.  For after sun care, first shampoo with P2 Clarifying Treatment (to neutralize chlorine and remove salt water) and rinse thoroughly.  Then apply a tablespoon of P2 Deep and leave on 5-15 minutes then rinsed thoroughly. 

Or multitask by cleansing and conditioning hair with these 2 wonders prior to sun exposure, leaving the P2 Deep on the hair.  Slick hair back, sweep into a bun or if hair is curly or wavy, P2 Deep can be scrunched into hair and allowed to airdry.  And with your next shower, simple rinse from your hair and style as desired.  This trick not only improves the quality of the hair fabric but also helps protect color and provides an easy go-to style solution!

Summer Solution ~ Chlorine & Salt Water Post Care Clarify

Posted on Posted in Trend Alerts

Summer Solution ~ Chlorine & Salt Water Post Care Clarify by Nikki ~ Product Education Director

image source allthingshair

Chlorine and salt water exposed hair need a special post-sun cleansing!  Both elements fade hair color and break down the hair fabric leading to faded color, dry hair, split ends.  Chlorine can make blonde hair green and turn brunette’s brassy.  But you can help stop the action of these damaging elements instantly with the right salt water removing and chlorine neutralizing shampoo.  Try our P2 by Philip Pelusi Clarifying Shampoo Treatment. 

Pre-swim ~ First, before your swim, take a couple of minutes to shampoo with P2 Clarifying.  This well-balanced formula is gentle yet contains effective high-tech chlorine combating ingredients that instantly neutralize chlorine on contact!  These anti-chlorine ingredients stay active in the hair for up to 24 hours, so they can help repel chlorine absorption while in the water. 

Post-swim ~ And this is what makes this deep cleansing treatment perfect for your post-swim cleanse!  Use on your hair, scalp, face, body, and swimsuit to help keep them looking brand new.  P2 Clarifying also contains specialized ingredients that neutralize chlorine and help remove minerals from the hair such as salt from sea water and copper deposited by chlorinated water. Plus, P2 Clarifying contains Silk and Wheat Protein to condition hair and leave it feeling silky and healthy looking with lots of body.

For a deeper treatment ~ Leave P2 Clarifying on the hair 5-10 minutes while in the shower, working a 2nd lather, rinse thoroughly, then condition with a Philip Pelusi Deep or Instant Conditioner.

Summer Solution ~ Refresh Your Tresses

Posted on Posted in Trend Alerts

Summer Solution ~ Refresh Your Tresses by Nikki ~ Product Education Director

Summer heat and humidity can mean hair needs a reboot throughout the day or before an evening out or Sunday brunch with friends.  But there is not always a need or time for a full hair shampoo and styling.  Plus, summer hair always needs a reapplication of sun protection just like a SPF does for the skin.

A quick and easy way to revive your hair and get its daily dose of sun protection is surprisingly with a hair refreshing mist!  We recommend our P2 by Philip Pelusi RefresHair Smart Styling Texture Spray.  Sunflower Extract helps hydrate while White Tea and Thyme freshen hair’s scent.  But this incredible multitask spray also contains UV Ray Filters! 

Perfect for those days when you don’t hair time for a full restyle, P2 RefresHair works as a lightweight hairspray and heat protector, but its principal role is to help reshape and boost your style.  Lightly mist onto dry hair, brush through, or lightly scrunch, or throw in a few microbraids or twists from your flat or curling iron to refresh your look.  It’s so lightweight and dries in seconds.  Hair stays pliable never stiff or sticky.  Sun protection and style all in one!

Summer Solution ~ Sunshine Prep and Protection with P2 Potion

Posted on Posted in Trend Alerts

Sunshine Prep and Protection with P2 Potion by Nikki ~ Product Education Director

As the weather warms up, we tend to stock up on summer clothes, sandals, SPF, self-tanner, and so on!  But what about our hair? 

Our tresses are often left out of the thought process when it comes to the summer season with most not realizing the damaging effects summer sunshine can have on our hair and scalp!  Especially since we are talking about protecting color investments, texture services and the general condition of our hair fabric. 

Hair color and haircuts are well worth investments and need protecting just as much, if not more than the new summer blouse we purchased, because we wear our hair every day.  Hair can get a sunburn just like the skin.  UV Rays erode protein in the hair, causing dryness, breakage, and color loss.

We recommend our P2 by Philip Pelusi Potion.  It contains Philip’s proprietary P2 Matrix Blend of 6 natural plant derived UV Filters, including Matricaria and Asafetida, to help protect hair and scalp while simultaneously acting as a heat styling protectant. 

When in the sun, toss a bottle of this lightweight, hydrating hair groom into your beach bag.  Apply to hair before any sun exposure and then again after getting out of the water.  It can be applied to wet or dry hair and dries light as a feather with zero buildup!  Also apply P2 Potion every morning as your daily dose of hair sun protection just as you apply your face SPF moisturizer.
