What’s in Your Lipstick?

 

What’s in your lipstick?… many lipsticks on the market today contain various harmful ingredients like phthalates, lead, parabens, butylated compounds (BHT and BHA) These metals and toxins are present in minute quantities in lipsticks. The impact of toxins increases in women as¬†they are absorbed through the skin, and ingested while eating and re-applying lipstick throughout the day. This results in women exceeding the daily intake guidelines for these metals and toxins. Certain harmful ingredients are known to cause cancer. These toxins accumulate in your body over time and cause toxicity. Cadium a metal often found in lipsticks is found in breast cancer tissue and has¬†been found to help cancer cells multiply. They can be harmful to your nervous system and your hormonal system.

What is a Keratin Treatment and is it right for me?

 Do I want a keratin treatment? What is a Keratin? Keratin is a natural protein found in your hair.

The keratin¬†treatments are¬†advanced, in-salon treatments that restore and restructure the hair by infusing a special blend of hydrolyzed keratin deep into the cuticle. The hydrolyzed keratin is bonded to the cuticle with heat from a flat iron to relax the hair’s subcuticle layer, resulting in renewed smoothness and shine.

Living in¬†Tampabay, Florida where it is hot and humid our hair¬†can be¬†naturally¬†frizzy and¬†unmanageable. The hair will be more manageable and easy to style, and will be resistant to humidity. It will feel noticeably softer and silkier, with added life, shine and vibrance. Blow drying times will be greatly reduced. A great time to have the treatment done is directly after permanent color, semi-permanent color or highlights. The treatment seals the color in, making it last longer and appear more vibrant. If you choose to have color applied after the treatment, we recommend waiting at least two weeks.¬†Keratin treatments are an investment so it‚Äôs crucial to invest in a great home care to achieve the longevity¬†of your treatment.¬†Salon Estetica only uses Keratin Complex Brand and we¬†recommend the¬†Keratin Complex Shampoo and Conditioner for every day care. If you already have¬†Aveda’s Brilliant, Color Conserve, or¬†Shampure shampoo and conditioner at home these are fine for your keratin treatment after care as well. No drugstore products! As these are¬†damaging for your hair and your keratin treatment as they will cause the cuticle of your hair¬†to open and release the¬†keratin treatment.
