Stylist Spotlight: The Savvy Smooth Professional

Travis

Travis has been in the hair industry for over 20 years and is a precision cutter and seasoned colorist. However, his favorite (and most frequent) service that he provides at Citrine is the Goldwell Kerasilk Smoothing treatment. Fortified with silk proteins and jojoba oil, the Goldwell Keratin Kerasilk treatment smooths out the hair cuticle; leaving soft, shiny and manageable hair with little to no effort. 

This smoothing treatment lasts 3-5 months (depending on lifestyle). We asked Travis which products he would recommend to help maintain the treatment at home. "My favorite products are the Goldwell Kerasilk Control shampoo combined with the Control smoothing mask as your conditioner. When combined, these two products help reinforce the Kerasilk treatment and also help it last longer as these products have actual Keratin in them."

Travis understands how hard it can be to have coarse, or unruly hair and strongly trusts in the Kerasilk system. With year round frizz management, the Smoothing treatment is ideal for the high humidity North Carolina summer months.

Transform Your Hair with Davines

Did you know Citrine Salon is a proud carrier of the Italian hair care line, Davines?

Davines was established in 1983 by the Bollati family, being founded as a small hair care research lab based in Parma, Italy. Taking a scientific approach to hair and beauty, they've created unique and innovative hair care formulations. After a decade of honing their skills, the family formed the Davines brand we know and love today.

The Bollati family founded Davines on high standards of sustainability, paying special attention to their craft and it's impact on the environment. Today, Davines constantly innovates their products and releases new concepts, keeping us inspired and curious about the limits of hair and design. All Davines products are still produced in Parma, and are exported internationally, creating a distinctive brand culture and lifestyle

Although Davines carries hair care and styling products for every hair type and condition, the Oi line has received some of the most love and attention from our staff and clients- and for good reason!

Ideal for daily use as part of a beauty routine, the Oi shampoo, conditioner, and styling products impart intense shine and hydration on hair, without weighing it down. Hair is left feeling extraordinarily soft, fragrant, and voluminous, resulting in easy maintenance and styling. 

A key ingredient that sets Oi apart is Roucou oil, derived from the Annatto plant. Originating from the Amazon, Roucou oil has the unique ability to restructure hair and provide protection against sun exposure and environmental damage. It is abundant in beta-carotene, ellagic acid, and antioxidants, which provide free radical-neutralizing properties.

Roucou oil's rich abundance of beta carotene makes it ideal for it's use in hair products. It has been shown to increase the production of melanin, which keeps natural and color-treated hair looking its best. Beta carotene is also responsible for fighting frizz and keeping grays at bay, making Oi the ultimate multi-benefit beautifying product. 

The Oi line consists of a shampoo, conditioner, leave-in/detangling milk, and finishing oil. Oi's signature scent is present in each product- a clean-smell that is exotic, yet sophisticated and not overpowering. The Oi line has expanded to include a hand balm, body wash, lotion, and soap! Experience the Oi line's ability to deliver immediate results, regardless of the condition of your hair.

Bumble and bumble Prepares to Release New Damage Repair Products

TEASED, TUGGED, FRIED, DYED... YOU’VE HURT YOUR HAIR. NOW, IT’S TIME TO SAY SORRY.

Did you know a strand of hair is stronger than a copper wire of the same diameter? Or that it's one of the fastest growing tissues in the human body, second to bone marrow?

We owe a lot to our hair, especially for those of us that regularly color, curl, flat-iron and tease. It's a miracle hair is still attached to our head, after all the ups and downs and trouble we put it through. 

Even with split ends, tangles, or dryness, hair is resilient. No matter how much we mistreat it and damage it further, our hair stays with us. We owe a lot to our tresses for this- and should make up for the chaos we inflict on it. Masques and treatments restore moisture and shine to the hair, but what can be used to reverse all types of heat damage and normal wear and tear?

Bumble and bumble has long carried products tailored specifically to damaged hair. Various Bumble masques, complexes, and leave-in treatments provide relief to even the most unfortunate heads of hair. Nevertheless, Bumble is set to release two new damage repair products that stand out from the rest: Save the Day and While You Sleep. The most intensive repair products yet, Save the Day and While You Sleep are super versatile and are suitable for every hair type.

Save the Day is intended to be used during the daytime, and is a lightweight fluid/serum that repairs hair and split ends, protects against heat and UV damage, and hydrates and smooths flyaways and frizz. Save the Day should be applied to damp hair before drying- easy as that! You'll have instantly softer, smoother, healthier-looking and feeling hair. Getting around-the-clock repair could not be more simple.

While You Sleep, as you guessed, is an overnight restorative masque that helps reverse the appearance of damaged hair. This super-nourishing treatment repairs past damaged and prevents against any future abuse. By morning, hair will feel silky-smooth and de-stressed. Both of these products are perfect for any excess color clients, frequent stylers, and people who spend a lot of time under the sun or in air-polluted metropolitan areas. 

Save the Day and While You Sleep are both lightweight, multi-benefit products formulated with camellia oil and antioxidants for advanced hair repair. Achieving revived, healthy hair can't be any easier. Bumble and bumble is releasing these products in the coming weeks, however Citrine will have them in early for retail purchase. Both are free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. We are currently accepting pre-orders! Call to get started on the ultimate hair repair or stop in to pick up your own.
