Hair Color Me Happy!

So you’ve got the hair that you have been longing for, saved up for, and invested in – for some time now. The next step, adding some color….right? Well if this is the next phase for you please be sure to visit your hair stylist (or hair technician) to professionally apply the color(or colors) of your choice to your well researched – top quality hair.

The hair experts and style forecasters have declared that the Hot hair Colors for Fall 2012 are Honey Blonde, Golden Red or Golden Strawberry, Cinnamon or Copper, Chestnut Brown, Rich Chocolate Brown and Deep Brown. Whatever shade you choose to implement, according to your sense of style and personality, is just alright! Whether one solid color or a two-tone Ombre look.

Regardless of your taste, after you have gotten your desired color, today we want to talk about ways to keep your hair “ablaze” in between colorings. They are simple at home functions to maintain your color and not allow it to dim – before you want it to. Below we itemize some tips to do just that:

1) At-home Glaze: Acquire a Hair Color Glaze or Glaze Shine Rinse from your local  Cosmetic, Beauty or even Drug store. In addition to maintaining your color, Glazes can help with smoothing your tresses, and provide moisture to the virgin hair. This keeps your color shiny and bright so it lasts longer and looks better. The Glaze Rinse also works to prevent color fading thus prolonging the life of your fresh tone.

2) Choose Shampoos intentionally: “Color Shield” Shampoos, Clarifying Shampoos and Tinted Dry Shampoos also do the trick. The ingredients within “Color Shield” Shampoos purposely boosts shine to the hair via the nutrients placed to protect and nurture the hair.  Clarifying Shampoos are marginally more alkaline than ordinary shampoos, containing an ingredient that cuts through product build up (such as sprays, gels, oils etc.) and extract the hair’s glow. Finally, if this “floats your boat” you can also acquire Tinted Dry Shampoos. For those weeks where you couldn’t get to everything on your “TO DO LIST”; freshen up, and bolster the color on your hair, all at once.
3) Deep Conditioning Treatments: Yes, your hair extensions are worthy of the care that you give your own hair. Particularly, the high standard hair acquired at ONYC®. Deep Treatments are absent of ammonia, that can strip the hair, but instead offer minerals that can boost moisture and shine thus leaving the hair glistening.
4) At home, affordable and in your medicine cabinet: Surprise, Surprise!…Hydrogen Peroxide can be used to brighten the hair and can be applied in the following ways…
  • Mix a 50/50 solution of Hydrogen Peroxide  with water and put it in a spray bottle. Spray it on your wet hair and comb through it. Leave on your hair for about 15 minutes then be sure to rinse. You should have all-over lightening. If you do not notice a difference immediately, use peroxide continually over time, if it does not illuminate your hair the way you want it to at first – Some people’s hair takes longer to brighten than others – you may have to repeat the process a few times until you are pleased with the result.
  • If you are only seeking to alter the color of parts of your hair; select specific strands to color rather than your whole head. Apply straight peroxide to these strands when wet and rinse it after 15 minutes.
  • Now it is very important that you apply a deep-conditioning treatment to your hair after you lighten it with hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide is very drying to your hair and can even cause breakage. Take it from me, I use this technique and can confirm this.
  • Still, always remember that if you are not comfortable with experimenting with “home remedies”, to consult a professional hair stylist…Don’t even chance it.

Oh Yeah! …Cause it’s Friday, we have a Special Bonus Tip for You! :0)

….However you intend to style your hair; whether straightening, curling or otherwise, applying product 10 minutes prior allows it to absorb into your hair and provide stellar results at the final outcome. Cheers!

The Red Carpet and Wedding Style

We don’t know about you, but many Hollywood Red-Carpet events often inspire Wedding Hair and Fashion.

Of course the seasons have changed and the dress colors may need to be tweaked a bit, but the hair looks and dress patterns can certainly serve as silhouettes for the potential style one would like to achieve.

In the picture above, these 5 ladies – Tina Fey, Kerry Washington, Claire Danes, Emily Vancamp and Gennifer Goodwin – showcase chic and classic glamor with their dresses and hair-dos.

Hair Tool of the Week: Nicole Ari Parker’s “Save Your Do” Gymwrap

We heard about this months ago when she first released the product. It is clever to hold your hair down with something other than a scarf, which leaves indentations, or a headband, which is probably creating a tangle in your ONYC Hair weaves. Who has the time to worry about that when you can not wear your sleeping hair wrap to the gym. think about it, it is like wearing your pajamas outside, getting them dirty and sleeping in them. That’s just a bad combo and a prescription for forehead pimples.
