ShamPHree Shiny Dancer: Silicone-Free shine drops!

Friends, I’m quite certain that Morrocon oil is the most used hair product in the country right now. Do I know this for an absolute fact? No. But I do talk to a very wide range of people about their hair, every day, all over the world. And Morrocon Oil is the product I hear about the most.

Why? because it makes your hair soft and silky and it smells good. It gives immediate results. Who doesn’t like instant gratification?

My problem with Morrocon oil is the tell tail stain of silicone it leaves on my hands after I blow out hair with it. And the gradual dulling that happens to people’s hair as the silicone slowly builds up and seals out natural moisture, making them more dependent on silicone. Yuk. I’m into sustainable hair…..but…..I use this product all the time in the salon because people request it and no one has made a good natural alternative.

BAM! ShamPHree Shiny Dancer Silicone-free Shine Drops!

Babes, I went ahead and researched and tried every oil under the sun that works like Morrocon Oil but without the silicone buildup. And my search led me to Fractionated Coconut oil. You all already know that I use coconut oil for everything, right?

Check this out. Fractionated coconut oil is an extremely light-weight oil. In the fractionation process, the largest molecules are removed leaving behind an extremely refined oil with a potent moisture content. The small molecules that make up the oil are very easy for your hair to absorb.

Fractionated coconut oil is the perfect hair oil for all hair types……Light enough for fine hair, moisturizing enough for coarse curls. It gives a power punch of moisture without an oily coating, it rinses clean. The hair is left soft and supple with the shiny reflection of health and vitality.

Hold me closer, Shiny Dancer.

7U6A0355I am so thrilled to introduce you to a new lovely hair solution. Shiny Dancer, silicone free shine drops…..for silky, shiny, healthy, soft hair. For any and all hair types. Pure, clean, and simple hair oil with a yummy warm and earthy vanilla vetiver scent in a 2 oz dropper bottle. Now available in the ShamPHree shop for $18.95. #freeyourhair

Pre-poo. Protecting your ends.

Hello and happy spring!

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 7.49.29 AMI recently participated in a skill-share class at Vain, where I chose a couple of tricks to share with my incredibly talented and inquisitive colleagues. The skills I shared were ponytail ombre/ how to get this kind of color,

How to do this braid, and how I am obsessed with the pre-poo.

 

What is pre-poo?

Conditioning hair before you shampoo/ShamPHree as an end-protecting measure.

Ever hear someone say “My hair just grows to a certain point and then stops?”

Ever tried to grow your hair out and it just doesn’t seem to want to grow past a certain point? Let’s call this the breaking point.

My hair has been at it’s personal breaking point for over a year now. It finally dawned on my that once my hair reaches collar-bone length, it wants to start splitting at the ends.

I have many female clients at Vain who are from India. Many of them were taught to condition their ends with oil before shampooing. This is contrary to what we are taught in our culture, right? I tried it out. My hair has grown 2 inches without needing a trim. That is an absolute first for me!

You can extend the breaking point of your hair by taking some extra end-protecting measures…..Here is how.

liquid goldGet you favorite hair oil or deep conditioning treatment ( NOT PROTEIN, PEOPLE!) Moisture. Like oils, butters, etc. I use Liquid Gold Hair Butter which is a mix of coconut oil and shea butter.

Before shampooing/ShamPHree-ing, flip your dry hair upside down and apply a pea and a half sized amount to your dry ends. Run your hands together tightly over your ends section by section to coat them. Just focus on the last 2 inches or so.

Now, go about your regular shampoo/ ShamPHree routine. Your ends will soak in the oil and protect against any stripping and drying that can happen from cleansing the hair. Use nice warm water to drive that goodness into your ends.

Pre-poo is a game-changer,

 

 

 

Introducing ShamPHree Infused Beauty Vinegar…

Flowers and hair get married with beautiful results. Introducing Infused Beauty Vinegar!

7U6A9987 Hi dears. I am really really jazzed about a couple different things right now. The first thing is that I am officially Auntie Rox to baby Sebastian James Barajas (Bash for short.)

The next exciting thing is that Spring is upon us, and I am chock full of inspiration for pretty hair posts featuring FLOWERS. I’m obsessed with hair and flowers together. I’ve worn flowers in my hair since I was fresh out my mama and I will never stop. I posted about it a couple years ago and it seems that all of the sudden, flowers are an en vogue and acceptable everyday hair accessories.

IMG_8579And I’m not talking about flower crowns. I’m talking fresh wild flowers, picked off of bushes, worked into braids, buns, and pinned into the hair all willy nilly. Sometimes it takes the world a minute to catch on to the most obvious beauty statements.

IMG_8589Flowers, like hair, grow naturally wild and beautiful. Especially if you care for them. They are an organic manifestation of vitality. hair and flowers work together, magical things happen.

I have some exciting news about flowers and hair at HTHG. I have spent the last year experimenting with infusing flowers and herbs and using them in my hair. I have tried different combinations with different results. After some trial and triumph, I have achieved Total Babe Hair with the combination of my favorite beauty herbs and flowers infused in organic raw Apple Cider Vinegar.7U6A0474

Ladies and Gents, I present to you ShamPHree Infused Beauty Vinegar, an Infusion of ACV with chamomile, hibiscus, burdock, horsetail, peppermint, and lavender and essential oils of rose, orange, and sage.

For the hair……

vin4This powerful natural beauty remedy can be used in your ShamPHree routine for added shine, body, and strength in the hair. It is INCREDIBLE for curly, coarse dry hair and brittle ends.

It is also a wonderful conditioner for finer hair that gets weighed down easily because it smooths the cuticle and adds shine without leaving any buildup on the hair.

Dry scalp issues and dandruff? Your days are over with Infused Beauty VInegar.

To use it, I mix it with water in my ShamPHree bottles and apply it to my hair, let it sit a couple minutes, and rinse.

For the face…….

I use it as my after cleansing facial toner to refine and brighten my skin and it makes an immediate visible difference.

For the body……

I add a couple of cap fulls to my bath to sooth and revive my skin. It is great for treating skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, and itchy dry skin.

Since I perfected the recipe, this Infused Beauty Vinegar has become a staple in my overall beauty routine.
