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.

Beauty Sustainability Month At Citrine

The 2018 Sustainable Beauty Month goal aims to plant 5,000 fruit trees in the remote Loreto region of Peru. These trees will serve as a stable source of food and income for over 350 families living in the region. We can't think of anything more rewarding than knowing our efforts here will directly impact these families for years to come. So, how does Citrine plan to contribute to the tree planting effort in this impoverished region of Peru?

This month, we're celebrating the arrival of Spring and Earth Day by partnering with Davines as part of their annual Beauty Sustainability Month! Every year the Italian hair care line, Davines, confronts a challenge experienced by the less fortunate living on this beautiful planet. We look forward to joining Davines in contributing to global and environmental affairs, as we all know that even the smallest of efforts create noticeable change. 

Beauty Sustainability Month is a unique movement, as Davines and salons join forces in a cross-section between business and the environment we live in and love. This year, Citrine Salon will be assisting Davines in their mission with the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation.

This month, we will be holding a raffle for a gift basket filled with some of the best-selling Davines hair and body care products. With the purchase of a 5 dollar ticket, your name will be entered into the drawing for a gift basket worth more than 75 dollars! 

All proceeds will go directly to the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation at the end of the month. At that time, we will draw a name as well. Stop in this April for more information or to purchase a ticket, or simply follow the link below to donate. Happy Sustainable Beauty Month!

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.
