Davines

And The Winner Is…

 

Argan oil!  It’s the star component in MoroccanOil professional products.  This extraordinary “super-ingredient” is derived from the argan tree, which is known to be indigenous only to the arid and often harsh climate of Morocco.  For hundreds of years it was familiar only to the native people of that area.

 

As one of the only flourishing vegetation sources in the region, it is utilized as food, shelter and a medicinal cure-all, in much the same way neighboring Mediterraneans used olive trees and oil.

 

It’s as if Mother Nature took many of the great properties, afforded separately by other sources, and packed them all into a small fruit-covered nut on a tree in a remote place.  And now, the treasure has been uncovered!

When seeing the rejuvenating, fortifying and styling capacity argan oil brings to beauty products, it’s no wonder that it is now embraced worldwide.

 

Argan oil contains natural moisturizers that help fortify and heal distressed and damaged hair.  It adds a natural protection and a light hydration that can be applied to multiple hair types.  The chemists at MoroccanOil have championed this versatility with formulas that tame frizz, reduce drying time, add shine, moisture and strength.  There is truly something for EVERYONE, no matter the hair type or style.

 

Argan oil contains natural tocopherols (Vitamin E) and Vitamin F, which promote strength, protection and durability in hair and skin.   It contains betacarotene, the natural healer found in dark leafy-greens and pigmented plants like carrots, pumpkin and sweet potato.  It is found to be even more resistant to oxidation than olive oil, and shares this property with hair and skin when applied, helping to create a residue-resistant, light feel.  It also contains the following fatty acids: oleic acid (omega-9, found in olive oil), linoleic acid (omega-6, found in cocoa/shea butter), palmitic (omega, found in palm oils), and stearic acid (omega, a natural softening agent).

 

As a food and food additive, argan oil is recognized as a combatant to obesity, cardiovascular disease and an aid to reduce harmful LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides.   But don’t start swigging from your shampoo bottle yet!

 

As a MoroccanOil partner salon, we were chosen to share all these benfits with you!

Summer Hair in South Florida…humid.

Summer Hair should be like a day at the beach… relaxed, luminous and gorgeous!  The South Florida Summer sun and humidity make these beach-like characteristics tough to attain.  The Summer heat can be damaging to your hair’s cuticle resulting in dry, dull or frizzy hair..and there’s nothing gorgeous about frizz.

Get beachy with our Summer Hair Care Tips:

Protect: Use a thermal protectant like the Davines Melu Shield to both seal and protect hair.  Melu Shield is rich in essential oils and antioxidants to create a strong conditioning power.  Davines developed the Melu Shield to protect hair to up to 428 degrees F, when using blowdryers/irons to style hair can also help protect hair in high heat/sun exposure.  Apply the Davines Melu Shield evenly to locks of dry or damp hair before heating/styling hair, for all day protection and a great look.

Condition: We love the Davines DeDe and Melu Conditioners.  DeDe is a light leave-in spritz treatment enhanced with grape seed extract and includes a UV protectant. Ideal for all hair types, to be used prior to sun exposure.  The Melu deep conditioner is perfect for a long day out in the Sun.  Nourish your hair by washing gently and applying Melu deep conditioner, leave on for 2-5 minutes then rinse. The Melu deep conditioner is enhanced with Apricot butter to nourish dry, damaged hair.

Prepare and Feed:  Prepare your hair before going into a pool by wetting your hair with clean water. Wetting your hair prior to swimming closes the cuticle and helps protect it from harsh chemicals.  Feed your hair by drinking plenty of water and eating green leafy vegetables.

 Consume fruits and vegetables that have high water content such as melon, watermelon and red tomatoes, as these are beneficial for your hair. Also, ensure that your diet is rich in proteins.

Enjoy: Enjoy your relaxed, luminous and gorgeous beach-like mane.
