80’s Big Glam Hair
Big hair, intense curls and large volume updo’s are all the rage. The hair has texture whether natural waves and curls or curls created by hot rollers or a curling iron. The look is big, bigger, biggest! To create these looks, some substantial holding products need to be applied to either damp hair to create volume and texture or to dry hair for teasing and holding the finished look. But once the day is done, a scalp reset to a fresh clean scalp is absolutely a necessity.
Enter the groundbreaking ingredients in our proprietary Philip Pelusi Rocket Ivy Blend found in our P2 by Philip Pelusi DeTox Shampoo Treatment. Its mission is to give the scalp a gentle but deep cleanse while balancing its pH level. That’s why it’s a favorite of those with overly active follicles or a lot of product buildup. Everything is cleansed away leaving a fresh clean scalp that’s never dry or tight and no color fadage.
The Philip Pelusi Rocket Ivy Blend consists of Rocket Leaf, also known as Arugula, with Ivy, Whortleberry and Watercress. They play a scientific trick on the scalp. Oily scalps have a higher pH, meaning the scalp’s pH is not in balance, so the body creates extra sebum to bring the scalp into proper pH balance. This is not a positive condition when wearing your hairstyle every day, as the hair and scalp feel and look greasy and the hair itself looks limp and dirty. The Philip Pelusi Rocket Ivy Blend puts the scalp in balance, so the body does not feel the need to produce more sebum. The hair and scalp stay cleaner longer with some guests reporting they have even been able to skip a day between shampoos, something they say they have never been able to do before.
Big voluminous hair also requires a thicker head of hair. But with hair loss being such a prominent issue for women today due to heredity, stress, menopause and environmental factors, we felt we needed to add another dimension to the P2 DeTox Shampoo Treatment to help support this effort, control of follicle-toxic DHT that can build up on the scalp and affect its ability to produce healthy hair.
Our highly specialized DHT Removal Complex, based in Tall Oil, derived from Pine Rosin, is similar to the non-toxic rinses many food processors use to clean and remove the residual pesticides from fruits and vegetables. The parallel in this case is that many pesticides are hormone-like agents that disrupt the hormonal balance of the insects, making them unable to metabolize nutrients or reproduce. This complex helps cleanse away the excess scalp-toxin Dihydrotestosterone, thought to be the primary cause of thinning hair. DHT is toxic to the follicle and has been shown to reduce their size and ability to produce mature hairs. The result is finer and finer hair strands and overtime can stop hair production.
Obviously, the protection of the hair follicle and thus the hair strands is paramount to a healthy head of hair. As many pesticides resemble hormones, it removes testosterone and its byproduct DHT. We are not affecting the production of testosterone, only the removal of the byproduct of their reaction on the scalp.
The P2 DeTox Shampoo Treatment can be used as a daily or weekly shampoo at home or as part of an in-salon scalp treatment. Easy to use for both men and women, it has a fresh scent and doesn’t strip or fade hair color.
Earthy Red Hair Color
Warm, fiery, cinnamon and scarlet. Not the usual terms used to describe spring and summer hair color, until this season. These warm hues are one of the big hair color trends both on the runway and in real life. This coincides with the red palette of hues released from Pantone Colors for 2020 including Flame Scarlet, Cinnamon Stick and Orange Peel.
Hair color is rich and lush with a mostly solid but luminous look. No highlighting, just a rush of red toned color gleaming with shine and a healthy feel and appearance. Styles are worn soft on mid to longer length hair, not heavily styled or overcut. The forms are simple and chic. But the keys to this look is color retention and a healthy hair fabric and scalp.
We believe our P2 by Philip Pelusi Age de Phy Shampoo and Age de Phy Conditioner to be the perfect fit. The cornerstone ingredient in these formulas is our Patent Pending, Hydro Charged Pelusi Ceramide Complex. This cosmeceutical breakthrough, available exclusively at Philip Pelusi, is a plant derived micro emulsion that mimics the way ceramides work in the cuticle layer of the hair. It reinforces the cuticle layer’s adhesion to the cortex by replacing missing ceramides to help bond color treated and aging hair’s often damaged cuticle layer to the cortex. This improved adhesion also yields another huge benefit helping color molecules stay intact within the cortex layer of the hair. By helping to seal the cuticle layer to the cortex, color molecules are also sealed in below. This also helps create a smooth exterior surface to the hair creating lots of shine as well.
The Hydro Charged Pelusi Ceramide Complexalso helps strengthen and moisturize the scalp which is equally important as the hair strands grow from the follicles in the scalp and as we believe, a healthy scalp is the key to every healthy head of hair.
At the top of the styling trend list for Spring and Summer are Whip Braids. This is the opposite of the laidback beachy, messy, frizzy braids of the last few warmer seasons. Instead, these low and long braids are tight, precise, slick and shiny. Consider them a modern version of the 1980’s Robert Palmer “Simply Irresistible” music video or the style made famous by popular 80’s singer Sade.
This look works best on super long hair or medium length hair where extensions or a faux ponytail can be added. Long hair is parted dead-center smoothed sleek to each side and tied in a low ponytail at the nape and braided into one long single braid. Bright pattern scarves can be woven into these braids as well for extra 80’s style power.
But with a clean healthy scalp being the key to any beautiful head of hair, the right products and ingredients are needed. And oddly enough a more digestive beneficial ingredient has come front and center of the hair and skin care ingredient trends. Thankfully way ahead of this trend, about a year and half ago we introduced our cutting edge Tela Beauty Organics Life Force by Philip Pelusi hair care line with the most recent addition of the Tela Life Force Scalp Scrub. It can be used alone, paired with all Tela products or used as part of our new in-salon Tela Life Force Root to End Recovery Hair and Scalp Treatment with our Tela Universe Signature Scalp Massage.
The Tela Life Force Tela Hair Immunity Complex is an incredible ingredient mixture comprised of Prebiotics, Probiotics and a unique Postbiotic treatment derived from Fermented Kelp Extract. Our Prebiotic component consists of an alpha glucan oligosaccharide that selectively stimulates beneficial bacterial growth that releases antimicrobial peptides that control undesirable flora.
Our probiotic component helps to balance scalp’s microflora like how Probiotics work inside our digestive system. We have learned that the skin and the scalp must also have healthy balance of specific microflora, good bacteria, or the scalp cannot function at its optimal level. Our Tela Life Force Probiotics help scalp rebalance its microflora helping the scalp to flourish as well as help provide a healthy scalp environment for hair growth. Think antiaging skin care for your scalp! The Prebiotics, derived from mostly vegetables, act as a rich fertilizer to enrich work of probiotics. So, they work hand in hand. Other benefits of the Tela Hair Immunity Complex include strengthening and hydrating the hair and scalp leaving hair shiny, full of body with increased elasticity.
Our Postbiotic component based on a Fermented Kelp Extract is also a great source of antioxidant enzymes that help fight oxidation, inflammation of the scalp while also helping protect hair’s color and scalp’s strength from free radical pollutants. Kelp is also abundant in minerals, vitamins and protein.
In this luxurious formula, Organic Sugar Cane Granules slide through Organic Milk Thistle Oil helping lift dead skin cells, dirt, debris from scalp and hair. This helps create a cleaner, healthier scalp environment and better deposit of other nutritional scalp ingredients in the scrub. Milk Thistle also provides softness, a light silky feel, heat protection as well as serving as an antioxidant to help ward off scalp inflammation and hair color fadage.
