June 13, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

We’ve all seen the hair products on the market for John Frieda. His products are usually for some kind of frizz control and to help tame the beast in our hair. Lots of women buy his special serums over any other frizz products because of the name behind the product. Why wouldn’t you buy a product from one of the most well-known and knowledgeable hairstylists in the world?

Although Frieda’s most popular products are mainly focused on frizz, it doesn’t mean he just works with frizzy hair. As a stylist, he knows he must be well-rounded in many areas of hair like cutting, coloring, repairing, etc. So where does he begin with helping his clients? The expertise and how to get to perfection of course.

One of John Frieda’s most popular products is the serum for frizz. He began with this line because of the amount of humidity in the air and the amount of frizz women experience. It can be extremely frustrating when you try to use a straightener and all you get is a bunch of strands poking out every which way your hair falls. Frieda realizes no one wants their hair to look like that so he came out with not only a serum, but a whole line of products to help control frizz. That line now contains a shampoo, conditioner, a heat protection spray, and a lightweight spray to prevent frizz for days.

Another reason Frieda has so much fame is thanks to his line of products called Sheer Blonder. This line creates a new look for women whose roots are too overpowering for their blonde locks. Many women are looking to go lighter when summertime leaves. You see, in the summer women can easily sit in the sun and let it lighten up their ends as well as their roots. However, some need a little boost and that’s what these products are for. The whole package includes shampoo, conditioner and a lightening spray which can be applied before you use your straightener. 

There are many kinds of lines from the John Frieda collection and they all have different goals. Whether you need a little help with styling, lightening up, repairing damage, or preserving colors, there are many different products that will match what you need. You can always trust John Frieda, the expert stylist for all things hair when you’re looking for great styles.

Hair Straightners With Tourmaline

January 5, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

If you are new to hair straighteners, or you simply haven’t shopped around for an updated tool in a little while, you may be confused with some of the new products that are available these days. There have been considerable number of advancements in the hair styling world and that includes the development of new and exciting hair tools that work even better than before. If you are still using a glass or metal hair straightener to style your hair, stop now before you do even more damage to your hair! You owe it to yourself to check out what’s new with hair irons.

When it comes to hair straighteners, you may have heard about new hair irons that utilize tourmaline. If you’re unsure about what tourmaline is, it is a naturally occurring element that is found in nature. Tourmaline is a natural source of negative ions when heat is applied, and it emits a large quantity of these ions. The reason that tourmaline is important to hair straighteners is because when the heat from the iron heats up the tourmaline, negative ions are created and those negative ions are actually a great benefit to your hair.

When negative ions are emitted from a hair straightener, they infuse each hair, going directly into the hair shaft. Negative ions actually close the hair cuticle sealing in natural oils and moisture. Because all of the hair cuticles are flattened it means that every hair on your head will lay flat on your head instead of sticking up and looking frizzy and over treated. And because all of the natural oils and moisture are locked into each hair, your hair will be soft and manageable instead of dry and frizzy. In fact, your hair will likely look better than it ever has before, healthier and more radiant.

And there’s more. Tourmaline also produces far infrared heat which works to dry your hair from the inside out instead of the other way around. What does that mean to you? Well, it means more time because it only takes a fraction of time to straighten your hair with a tourmaline iron than other types which means that you will be out the door with perfectly styled hair in no time. And because less heat is required to accomplish the straightened look it means that your hair isn’t exposed to harmful heat for very long minimizing the chance of any damage ever occurring.

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice the quality of your hair just because you want to achieve a straight look. And using the old style glass and metal plate hair irons cause a great deal of damage to the health of the hair. No longer will you have to suffer through damaged, unhealthy hair all in the name of style. With the new tourmaline hair straighteners, you can accomplish beautiful sleek and sexy styles and actually make your hair healthier and more beautiful than you ever thought possible. So stop sacrificing and make the leap to a tourmaline hair straightener today.

Using the Right Wattage Hair Dryer

September 5, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Most women know about choosing the right temperature setting on their curling iron or hair straightener for their hair type to get the best results. Many do not know they should also choose their hair dryer based on wattage for the same reason. Of course poorly made hair dryers do not have the higher wattage capability as the professional hair dryers have built in.

For those with fine or damaged hair a hair dryer of 1,200 to 1,500 watts is the best for getting the hair dry quickly and efficiently. This means that if your hair is in this category you will not need a dryer that is stout and robust, as other hair types need.

While those with very thick or wavy hair type will need a hair dryer with more power, so for these hair types a unit with a minimum of 1,800 watts will be needed to properly dry hair like this.

If your hair is somewhere in between, than a dryer in the middle ranges of these two wattage ratings extremes will be suitable to get the hair dry.

Having the right amount of power behind your hair dryer is essential to not only dry your hair quickly but to keep it at its absolute healthiest. This will help you get ready quicker and make styling your hair so much simpler.
