Keeping Your Hair Color Vibrant All Year Long!

Keeping Your Hair Color Vibrant All Year Long!

Spring is right around the corner (finally!) and that means many people are freshening up their color or adding sunny highlights for the new season. But it’s not cheap to get your hair colored – the popular balayage technique can run you hundreds of dollars depending on where you go. Most don’t realize how important it is to secure your investment by using color-protecting hair products. Your color lasts longer when you take care of it, resulting in less salon visits for touch ups, saving a lot of money in the long run! Here at Paul Joseph Professional we understand that, so we use cutting edge and natural ingredients in our specialized products to keep your color sparkling.

 

The first and most common line of defense is shampoo and conditioner. Our sulfate free LOCK IT IN Color-Protecting system uses a specialized UV absorber (with a long scientific name), to prevent color fade caused by UVA and UVB rays. Dyed hair can also become brittle, weak and dull so it’s important to stay hydrated. LOCK IT IN Color-Protecting Shampoo contains extracts such as garlic, sage, lemon and echinacea which help to add and retain moisture, increase shine, and even boost healthy hair growth. The keratin, protein, and vitamins contained in the LOCK IT IN Color-Protecting conditioner aid in repairing hair damaged by the coloring process, giving your hair a healthier, more vibrant appearance.

 

Next, the blow out process. By using a combination of INTENSITY Leave-In Treatment and UPGRADE Quick Blow-Dry Spray (or either one on their own) you can keep your hair hydrated and protected from color fade even on the sunniest of spring days. The sunflower seed extract in INTENSITY keeps the color sealed in, the strands hydrated and repaired, and protects against damage caused by UVA/UVB rays. UPGRADE adds to that protection with lemon zest extract which has antioxidant properties, shielding your hair against the elements. The sugar cane extract, also in UPGRADE, contributes to retaining moisture and conditioning each strand for a manageable texture.

 

And lastly, styling. In the past decade, it has been discovered that the “superfood” quinoa was found to help retain color when the extract is used in hair products. That’s why we included that, as well as kiwi, mango and aloe extracts in our ELEVATE Color-Protecting Hairspray. The flexible hold is never crunchy and won’t dull your beautiful (and expensive) color – in fact it will add shine (something hairsprays typically don’t do!) On top of looking nice, your scalp and strands will absorb nutrients rather than harmful build-up, improving the condition of your hair and color with every use.

So after your next expensive trip to the salon, think about the long-term effects of color-treating your hair and how to keep it as fresh as possible for as long as possible. Stylists have a fountain of knowledge when it comes to this, so don’t be afraid to ask which product is best for you and your hair type. And don’t forget to mention Paul Joseph Professional – our complete color-protecting system will change your life (and your wallet!)

Real Hydration: The Benefits of ProVitamin B5

Real Hydration: The Benefits of ProVitamin B5

If you’ve ever purchased or used our LOCK IT IN Color-Protecting Shampoo, you may have noticed on the back it says “Contains ProVitamin B5” – but what is that and why is it beneficial for you? We’ve got the inside scoop, so read on!

 

A member of the B-Complex Vitamin family (many of which are used as popular supplements), ProVitamin B5, also referred to as panthenol, is well known in the beauty industry for its moisturizing benefits. There are several features of this additive which create shine, elasticity, and even volume. So let’s break down what those features are…

 

When applied to your hair or scalp, this particular vitamin is a highly effective humectant – which in layman’s terms means it promotes moisture retention. The chemical structure actually attracts moisture from the atmosphere and binds it to your hair and scalp. With all of the various chemical and heat treatments in use today, hair can become dehydrated, brittle, and dull. ProVitamin B5 will restore that moisture, resulting in stronger, more flexible hair strands – and some have even said that it expands the hair shaft to create a voluminous look. Everything on this planet grows with water – so a hydrated scalp is going to result in a healthier follicle as well.

 

In addition to retaining moisture, this ingredient will create a water-soluble film on the hair shaft (water soluble meaning you won’t end up with a waxy buildup.) This serves a number of purposes – first and foremost it creates a glossy finish and adds shine, giving you that fresh-from-the-salon radiance we all crave. It also acts as a detangler without adding greasiness or oiliness.

 

We decided to use ProVitamin B5 in our LOCK IT IN Shampoo for a couple different reasons. For one, color-treated hair needs all the moisture it can get, so this will help to reduce any damage by making the strands stronger and more pliable. Additionally, adding shine to colored hair will enhance the vibrancy – truly giving you your money’s worth. Other benefits include reduced breakage and split ends, adding softness and creating a smooth look. So if that’s something you’re after – check out LOCK IT IN today!
