EXPERT ADVICE

ANTI by Crazy Color The Concept Love your vibrant color, but can’t stand to see it washed down the drain after just the first wash? Crazy Color’s ANTI Bleed Spray locks in color for up to 20 extra washes. Applied after any salon color service, ANTI prevents bleeding, prolongs fading and enhances shine. Post color service, simply rinse with cool water, apply to wet hair, let it sit for 1 minute and then rinse as normal, minus the color bleeding! Continue to use at home with the same method for color that keeps on giving. “Throughout the pandemic, people have gotten quite bored of their hair, and as you can probably see from your friends online, have been playing around with Crazy Color. Once we get back in the salon, we suspect a rise in people wanting more professional vivid color than ever before now that they’ve had the opportunity to play.”

MARKET PLACE

Hair Care Staples There are so many creative hairstyles shoppers can create with the array of hair products your store offers. They could use synthetic extensions to add length to their hair or color their hair with an assortment of hair dyes and waxes. But nothing is as important as the products that help shoppers care for their hair in between styling. Check out 12 of our favorite hair care products that we know your customers will love!

Oil Treatment For instant shine and nourishment, recommend the One ‘N Only Argan Oil Treatment. This non-greasy, alcohol-free formula absorbs into the hair and reduces frizz, split ends and breakage. It smooths the cuticle, resulting in silky, conditioned hair.

Its emulsion technology provides the extra hold and shine customers love with a conditioning formula that provides up to three times less breakage.

Mousse Shoppers love products that do double duty, and the Vigorol ® Olive Oil Mega Moisture Mousse is one of those items. Specifically formulated for hair that needs extra moisture, this product moisturizes and provides lasting hold without the stickiness or stiff hair. The alcohol-free, creamy foam is enriched with Olive Oil, antioxidants and multi-vitamins for incredible moisture and shine.

Heat Protectant Straightening your hair can be a damaging process if you’re not using the right hair care products. That’s why we’re a fan of the Fantasia Heat Protector Straightening Spray. It maintains the perfect moisture balance while using heat appliances and protects hair against damage. It also leaves hair free of frizz, smooth and shiny, even in humid conditions.

Growth Oil When growth is the goal, recommend the Barber Shop Aid® Alopecia™ Amazing Stimulating Hair Growth Oil. It strengthens and thickens hair and prevents it from falling out, thanks to its synergistic blend of essential oils that stimulate the hair follicle and increase circulation and oxidation. This is also ideal for use on thinning edges and temple areas.

Intense Conditioner Dry, damaged hair doesn’t have to be one’s normalcy. With the Silicon Mix, hair can be intensively treated to restore the health, shine and softness of weak tresses. This product is also known to be used to revive human hair wig units and extensions.

HOW TO TREAT DRY NATURAL HAIR:

Maintaining moisture One of the number one issues that naturals experience is dry hair; in other words, many are struggling to retain moisture. Today, we’re going to tackle the issue head on.

DIET As one may suspect, a number of factors

can cause dry hair, diet being one of the top contributors. Consuming foods that are high in sodium can dry out the body. Naturally, it will rehydrate itself by pulling moisture that’s been on reserve in other parts of the body, including (but not limited to) the skin/scalp and ultimately, the hair. How do you balance that out? Drink more water! It seems simple, because it is. Our bodies are primarily made up of water, so to keep them healthy, functioning, and flourishing - even for beauty purposes - we must continue to hydrate with water, otherwise we’ll see the negative impact everywhere else. How much water should you be aiming to drink? It’s generally recommended for the average adult to drink about 64 ounces of plain water per day, but it never hurts to discuss exact quantities with a doctor first, because each body is unique.

HAIR TYPE

When we say hair type, we aren’t referring to the chart that names your curl pattern by number and letter (for example, 3b, 4a and etc.). We’re talking about how porous your hair strand is, a factor that is not dependent on its curl pattern. Hair porosity is a measure of the hair’s ability to absorb and retain moisture + the speed at which it does so. Porosity refers to how tightly bound the outer layer of the hair strand (the cuticle). A simple water test can be performed at home to determine your porosity type. Below are a few characteristics of each type:

24

Low Porosity: The cuticle layer is very tightly bound, which makes it difficult for moisture to enter the strand. Low porosity hair does absorb moisture, however, it takes a very long time for it to do so. Because of this, products + oil may appear to sit on the hair instead of penetrate it. To help speed up the moisture absorption rate when styling, try using a hair steamer/applying product while in a steamy room (like after a hot shower), and sitting under a hooded dry/using a heatOTC capBeauty whenever deep conditioning. Magazine July 2021

Medium Porosity: The cuticle layer is neither tightly bound nor lined with gaps. It doesn’t take a long time for the hair to dry, but it also doesn’t dry particularly fast. Medium porosity hair holds styles well, and doesn’t have trouble retaining moisture. High Porosity: The cuticle layer has many gaps and holes. While moisture is easily absorbed, the hair dries back out very quickly, making it very difficult to retain that moisture. It is important to note that one can naturally have high porosity hair, however, it’s common for repeated usage of heat tools and chemicals (such as hair dye) to cause strands to become more porous over time. Those with high porosity hair should especially avoid using heat; opt to air-dry only. Using sealant products after a moisturizer will help with retention, as well as using cool or luke-warm water to rinse the hair when you can.

PRODUCTS The

food and water put into the body are essential, but the products put onto the hair are too! Choose products that are both sulfate-free and paraben-free. Sulfates, mostly found in shampoos, tend to dry out any hair type; they strip strands of their naturally produced oils and moisture. If you’re struggling with dry hair, it may even be useful to introduce co-washing to your routine. A Co-Wash is a conditioner formulated with very gentle cleansing agents. It removes build up, re-moisturizes, and can be used to detangle. A Co-Wash should not replace your regular shampoo, but rather help give the hair and scalp a refresh and extra conditioning between regular washes. When styling, go for moisturizers that have water listed as the first ingredient! Water is the ultimate source of hydration, so any product that contains a high amount of water can be beneficial in combating dryness. Products with primarily natural ingredients tend to be best for all hair types, however, it can be especially helpful to choose a product line based on how specific ingredients perform with certain porosity levels.


For example: Low Porosity: Products with Coconut Oil are particularly beneficial to low porosity hair because this oil absorbs into the skin and hair with ease, unlike some others which seal, but do not easily absorb. JojOba Oil is a great option for that reason as well. Peppermint + Tea Tree Oil can help break down product buildup that tends to sit on low porosity hair over time. Medium Porosity: Because this porosity level is right in the middle, this hair type often performs best with products that are not super thick and heavy. Sweet Almond Oil is ideal because it’s lightweight, yet effective at maintaining the hair’s natural moisture + keeping it protected. High Porosity: Products containing Honey will be your best friend. Honey is a natural humectant, which means it helps to preserve moisture. Products with Castor Oil are also a goto! Castor Oil is great at sealing in moisture, especially on hair that tends to absorb it quickly; Shea Butter too! It’s important to note that while certain ingredients and product lines may be especially helpful to specific hair types, it doesn’t mean they are exclusively beneficial to those types; that’s the great thing about natural ingredients!

REGIMEN Finally, we can’t discuss treating dry natural hair without covering technique and regimen! Choosing the right products is a great first step, but using them in an effective order is equally important. For example, if someone has brittle hair and is struggling to retain moisture, it would not be ideal to apply just a gel or an oil straight after washing without first applying a moisturizing product. Some commonly practiced techniques to achieve the utmost moisture are referred to as the LOC and LCO methods. When using either of these methods, each step/product type must be included, but the order of the last two steps varies depending on personal preference. However, oftentimes, those with low porosity opt for LCO, while those with high porosity sway towards LOC.

Once you’ve locked in which method works best for you, it’s important to implement it on every wash day. Sticking to a regimen is essential because it gives the hair a chance to adjust to the actions and fully have time to reap their benefits. While every person’s routine may vary a bit, a general regimen that can be followed to maintain healthy hair and scalp + lock in that moisture is: 1) Detangle (using a leave-in or prepoo) 2) Shampoo (using a sulfate-free cleanser) 3) Deep Condition (using a deep conditioner or hair masque for a minimum of 30 mins.) 4) Moisturize (using a liquid or leave-in) 5) Style/Seal (using a Cream and/or Oil or Gel) Deep conditioning is crucial, especially for dry or damaged hair! No matter the hair type or texture, a quality deep conditioner should be a staple in your routine every wash day. How often you’re washing and styling is dependent upon your individual lifestyle and habits. Also, keep in mind that protective styling may be an ideal option to help treat dry hair. When strands are tucked away and not being manipulated for a period of time, they’re generally able to hold on to moisture longer. However, even when protective styling, the steps mentioned above should be taken prior to the style’s installation to properly prep the hair. While wearing any protective style, be sure to treat the scalp + re-moisturize the hair with a light liquid or leave in, and seal the ends at least once per week. *** There you have it!

Flaxseed improves hair follicles with consistent use, as it is high in Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamins B and E. Flaxseed, or Linseed, oil is a colorless-to-yellowish oil obtained by recovering it from the dried, ripened seeds of the flax plant. This oil is made naturally through a lengthy process of boiling and straining that can take up to an hour. It is added to conditioners, stylers, and gels to make them more potent, to be used to enhance curls, and help with elongation. Hollywood Beauty®’s Pure ® Flaxseed Oil offers the retailer a chance to provide real convenience to consumers with a highly desired, “on-trend” quality product. Hollywood Beauty ® Pure products are certified organic by the USDA to achieve healthier hair and skin solutions. All products are certified Vegan, Gluten-Free and Cruelty-Free.

BUSINESS TIPS

By Kate Zabriskie

I’m Stuck in the Weeds & Can’t Get Out The Micromanager’s Recovery Guide “He gives me an assignment and tells me to do it my way. I only wish he meant it. My way doesn’t seem to hit the mark. He changes the smallest details. I dread getting new work.”

“I’ve had this job for six years. At this point, I think I understand how it works. It’s so frustrating to be treated like someone who just walked in the door.”

Step One: Recognize the Behavior Pattern Suppose your employees don’t take the initiative and wait for you to micro-delegate. You may have created a culture where they don’t feel comfortable taking the next step without your say-so.

“Yesterday, I found her checking my spreadsheets when she thought I was at lunch. It feels terrible not to be trusted. I need to look for a new job.”

More signs? If you find yourself redoing work,

on everything, chances are you have some micromanaging tendencies.

oversight, checking in, and nitpicking wear down even the strongest employee. Turnover goes up, engagement goes down, and all the while, the managers who micromanage may not even know they’re the source of the problem. The good news? With a little self-awareness and some hard work, micromanagers can learn to let go.

A word of caution: even with the Goldilocks approach, if you’ve micromanaged your team for a long time, it may take a while for them to give you frank feedback.

Step Seven: Don’t Argue with the Feedback When someone gives you feedback you don’t like or don’t agree with, don’t argue. Your employee’s perception is the reality you must work with. So instead of fighting or withdrawing, ask questions. For example, “What I’m hearing is you would like me to focus less on how you run the lab tests and more on the number you complete each day. Do I understand correctly? If

Self-development requires regular assessment and planning. In addition to asking for feedback, pay attention to where you spend your time that you shouldn’t and where you could that you don’t. Are you working on strategic initiatives or navigating deep in the weeds? Are you developing people or hoarding work? Are you controlling or empowering? The questions are numerous and important to ask.

Hello, Summer

Hair Care Hello, summer! We have been looking so forward to seeing you, but when it comes to the hair, the hot, dry sun can be quite damaging on our lustrous mane. Here are a few products that will keep the hair clean, moisturized and protected. Swimming is common during the summer months, but take notice of the condition of your hair. Salt or chlorine water is bad for the hair because it strips the hair of its natural oils and moisture. That is why it is important to use moisturizing shampoos and conditioners for your hair to protect it from the effects of swimming.

Swimming Tips for Relaxed Hair 1.

If possible, wear a swimming cap to keep your hair from getting wet.

2.

Saturate your hair with clean water before getting into the water, so it is less likely to absorb the chlorinated or saltwater.

3.

If your hair gets wet, you’ll want to wash and condition it as soon as possible. It is imperative to nourish the hair strands.

4.

Relaxed hair is more susceptible to keratin damage, so make sure that you are frequently conditioning your hair during the summer months so that you will not have damage to the hair strands.

Pantene Gold Series Moisture Boost Shampoo Infused with Argan Oil, the creamy lather gently cleanses the hair and hydrates rough cuticles.

Swimming Tips for Natural Hair 1.

If possible, wear a swimming cap to keep your hair from getting wet.

2.

Saturate your hair with clean water before getting into the water, so it is less likely to absorb the chlorinated or saltwater.

Suave with Natural Shea Butter & Pure Coconut Oil Shampoo

3.

Wash and condition the hair as soon as you get out of the water. Use a leave-in conditioner for maximum moisture.

The sulfate-free shampoo removes buildup leaving the hair moisturized with a shine.

4.

It is best to let the hair air dry to minimize chlorine and heat damage.

Summer Essentials Royal Oils by Head and Shoulders Hair Moisture Boost Shampoo This rich, creamy shampoo cleanses and hydrates the hair. It is free of dyes and parabens, leaving the hair with a fresh coconut scent.

Royal Oils by Head and Shoulders Moisture Renewal Conditioner with Coconut Oil Made specifically for textured hair, the conditioner indulges the scalp with moisture and leaves the hair soft and bouncy. Black hair soaks up humidity like a sponge. Those with high porosity hair tend to lose their natural moisture easily.

Hask Curl Defining Cream The curl activating complex is humidity-proof and leaves curls soft and defined.

Sun Care 1.

Avoid direct sunshine and shield your hair from the sun. Harmful UV rays can damage the hair just like they can damage our skin and eyes. Wear a hat or scarf to protect the hair from sun rays.

2.

Maintain a routine to shampoo and condition the hair more often. Keep those split ends cut so that your hair will continue to grow.

3.

Use moisturized lotions, oils, and a UV protectant spray to prevent dryness.

4.

If your hair starts to show signs of damage and stress, see a beautician for conditioning treatments to get your hair back to life.

Fighting Humidity Frizzy strands, thanks to Mother Nature’s humidity, can be a frustration for many customers. Recommend these tips and products for the next time your shoppers ask for help. 1.

Consider wearing an updo hairstyle or sporting a neat bun to prevent the hair from being frizzy.

2.

Use coconut oil and shea butter to keep the hair moisturized and tamed.

SheaMoisture 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

3.

Get a protein treatment. Hair that lacks protein will be frizzy.

This serum conditions, locks in moisture and tames flyaway hairs while adding a healthy shine.

4.

Summer is a good time to opt for protective styles like box braids, Bantu knots or twists.

CLIPPER TIPS Sponsored by Andis Co.

TOP 6 GROOMING TIPS FOR AT-HOME GROOMERS By Kenny Duncan,

Andis Global Educator – US Team Lead 1. Keep your tools maintained. After brushing away any debris and hair from your blades, thoroughly spray with Cool Care Plus to clean & disinfect, then wipe off excess with a towel. Place three drops of Andis oil across the teeth of the blade and one drop at each back rail, turn on to evenly coat, then turn off and wipe off residue with a towel. 2. Choose the right tool for the job. Clippers such as the Speedmaster, Supra Li 5, Envy Li or Master Cordless should be used when a large amount of hair needs to be removed. For detail work, outlining and designs, the best trimmer options are the corded or cordless T-Outliner, Slimline Pro Li and the Styliner II. For dry shaving, use either the ProFoil or ProFoil Plus Shaver. 3. Trust the attachment combs to do the job. Attachment combs are designed to be attached to clippers to aid in cutting hair down to precise lengths. Leave freehand clipping to the professionals. 4. Find the flow and go with it. Hair grows in patterns referred to as growth streams. Comb through hair before clipping to find the direction of the growth stream, then follow the flow with the clipper to remove small amounts of hair. 5. Longer hair hides mistakes; shorter hair eliminates retakes. Take small steps to get to the desired length and cut off length in stages. You can always take more length off, but you can’t put it back on. 6. Prevent dipping while clipping. Clipping off too much hair in one section is called dipping. To prevent this, use a c-stroke motion when clipping – at the end of a pass with the clipper, gently flick your clipper up and out back towards yourself. This motion especially helps when fading.

He is the barber for several Grammy award-winning artists and has toured the world as the barber for Lady Gaga world tours and the Adele Live world tour.

THERAPY TRENDS Bundles of Back-Spanking Summer Styles By Elayne McClaine This year, as the days get longer, so does the length of braids, twists and weaves. New Rule: it seems the length of the locks should at least be as long as the hem of the shirt, hair that actually spanks below the belt. There’s no braid technique that is too long—from boxy basics to crocheted creations. These styles are great for a summer rest for the hair and scalp. It calls for products and accessories that cleanse, nourish and protect. Customers will generate bundles and bundles of profits. For the recommended 8-week rotation of hair, clients will return to get new bundles of hair products. They will reuse and replace hair of all colors and design patterns. Hair accessories will be booming, as well. In between, it is recommended to stock up on products that deep condition the natural hair. Shoppers will need the bonnets and baubles for their summer styles. The new products coming to the OTCs this summer will protect natural hair beneath the added locks. Customers will need hot oil treatments

and massage oils to protect and nourish the scalp. Shoppers will use plant-based leave-ins and vinegar sprays to cleanse and shine the artificial extensions and become proficient in a do-it-yourself braid and weave installation and care. Many new products are entering the marketplace for them to use. Summer is also bringing in a host of skincare and shaven head care products. For the OTC dealer, the summer styles require heat and sun protection for hair and skin. Consumers expect the same protection and care from products but with the added burst of sun-filled fun and frivolity. Colorful displays and packaging in-store should reflect that consumers are ready for a spanking good time for summer.

Andis® Company Announces International Artistic Team Helmed By Kevin Luchmun and Kenny Duncan Andis Company, a leader in professional tools and education for the barber and beauty industries, is thrilled to announce a new Global Artistic Team led by barbering icons Kevin Luchmun and Kenny Duncan. A renowned barber, men’s stylist, educator and photographer, Kevin Luchmun will guide the brands efforts abroad as the ‘International Artistic Team Lead’ and current US Lead Educator, Kenny Duncan, will take the lead in the U.S. and Canada as the new ‘North American Artistic Team Lead.’ Both newly created roles seek to accelerate Andis’ international presence by building upon its global reputation for world-class tools, education and creative inspiration. Kevin and Kenny will play a pivotal role in the development of educational programs for barbers and stylists as well as providing artistic direction for creative projects and collections. Both will also be instrumental in the formation of a new wing of programs designed to develop the creative talents of Andis’ audience of creators.

Introducing Kevin Luchmun

As one of the UK’s most recognizable and respected men’s stylists, Kevin’s technical hair cutting skills have positioned him as one of the industry’s most inspiring barbers, men’s stylists and educators. A multi-award-winning stylist spanning barbering and men’s hairdressing, Kevin’s work on editorial photoshoots and Kevin Luchmun collection photography, and the relationship between hairstyling, fashion and the visual presentation of technical cuts, has seen his creativity extend into a signature photography style. As passionate about photography as he is about hairstyling, both are approached and revered in equal measure with his work appearing on the covers and in the pages of international trade and consumer magazines, on the catwalks, online and across social media. For Kevin, joining Andis is a dream come true. Unlike

ambassadorships that hinge on commercial arrangements alone, Kevin has long-held a deep rooted respect for Andis and was determined to work with the brand from the outset. “Very early in my career I got the opportunity to work on the Andis stage at Salon International. From that moment I was passionate about Andis and I was always intent on working with the brand. For me there was never an alternative to Andis; I’ve waited a long time for this to come to fruition,” said Kevin. “Now I’ve reached this point in my career and have so many achievements and accolades, the timing and the type of position couldn’t be more perfect. I look forward to working with Angie and the global education team to elevate Andis’ brand appeal and educational resource base, as well as highlighting the precision and performance of its industryleading tools.” According to Angie Perino, Andis Global Education Manager, it’s Kevin’s multi-faceted skills base, creative vision, technical precision and stage craft both as a hair artist and educator that make Kevin a perfect fit for this new role. “We pride ourselves in providing world-class educational programs and inspiration that provide the road map to a successful career,” said Angie Perino, Andis Global Education Manager. “Kevin will be working closely with Kenny Duncan, to merge our educator network into a global vision that empowers barbers and stylists to express their individuality, maximize their creative talents and exceed their artistic potential through hair and imagery.”

Introducing Kenny Duncan

Partnering with Kevin will be Kenny Duncan, serving as the “Andis North American Artistic Team Lead. Kenny previously served as US Education Team Lead. “Kenny has been a crucial member of the Andis Education Team for many years, we are very proud to see him elevated to a role that allows him to express his endless creative visions,” Kenny Duncan said Perino. “Kenny will be serving the US and Canada as a lead contributor for creative projects including photo shoots and various educational programs. Kenny also leads our Global Virtual Competition Program that connects our barbers and stylists in a friendly duel to earn the title of Andis Master right from the comfort of their home, shop or salon.”
