Creamy Oil Bleach Kit Now Has a Brand New "Violet/Blue" Tinted. . Lightener Base

VIOLET-BLUE-VIOLET-BLUE-VIOLET-BLUE-VIOLET
Creamy-Oil Bleach Kit

Coloring Hair is the single most TRANS-FORMATIVE action that be done to the body that doesn't involve a scalpel ! That says a lot.
Going Platinum is THE single biggest change in Hair Color that one can accomplish or strive for. 
I would imagine (in a much smaller scale) it must be like the thrill a Heart Surgeon gets when transplanting a new heart and giving life to someone who was dying. 
 To watch someone turn from a wall-flower to a wonder-woman - simply by taking her hair from dull mousy brown to dynamic platinum Blonde is the single most rewarding task a Hair Colorist can accomplish. 

The one and ONLY way that thrill is achieved is by achieving a gorgeous - silky - shiny platinum without an ounce of brass.....and only silky/shiny/ strands. I did it for many years, without the help of OLAPLEX or YAHOO or MAGIC PUTTY ! Just because u have figured out how to purchase Olaplex does not mean you need to be using it.

 The Science of Hair Coloring , understanding the Level System of Hair Coloring and using an OIL BLEACH KIT as your tool will completely solve being a brass-free platinum haired beauty !.....ask any top Colorist if they have problems turning hair platinum. Since Marilyn Monroe, we have had the process wired. How do you think Gwen Stefani? Christina Aguillara, have kept their hair so very platinum for the last 20 years? All the magic potions out there are brand new. Just follow the 100 year old science. 

If there are no problems, why are you trying to fix something that is not broken.
 It can (honestly) turn black hair white (see photo right) -- so if the girl to the right can go from black to white....so can you. 

BUT...and this is a giant "BUT" ...... 4 things MUST be followed:  
   - Use Creamy Oil Bleach as the product to lighten.
   - Proper application techniques incl.+ always perform Strand Test
   - Use PLENTY of product (on initial app.)& #1
   - YOU MUST READ EVERY single POST & DEMO in this Blog that pertains the following words (put words in Search Bar atop of this Blog):
  • blonding
  • violet/blue creamy oil base
  • platinum
  • bleach & tone
  • oil bleach kit
  • creamy oil bleach
  • blonde
  • brass-free blond
  • violet/blue creamy oil bleach
  • blond demo
  • demo
This will bring up all the posts that are mandatory to read prior to embarking on this process. It truly will give you the education that Hair Stylists receive the first couple years. I didn't hold anything back nor will I. I was going to try to write a book but that won't work with the deterioration of my health....I still wish I could......... so when I am not around there would be somewhere you all could go. Anyone a ghost writer out there?

There is one common issue a couple people have had lately, but it is covered in many places...they just didn't read about it so I want to remind you all once again..... The Creamy Oil Bleach Kits - have 2 applications in them - which means the product one needs to Re-Touch the hair....monthly or every 5-6 weeks is in 1 Kit and the other Kit is for the next month. BUT IF you have dense hair you may need both Kits.... It varies from person to person.............please try to use common sense in these issues.. When beginning the whole process you will need multiple kits - why? Because you have the lengths to do and that isn't accounted for .  The roots & lengths must be taken into account when calculating total product needed - our kits have 2 applications which is made for monthly Re-Touches -- NOT the initial lightening. The length, thickness, porosity, all have to be accounted into that equation and it is different for each and every person.....please be aware of that, do your reading and be fully informed before embarking on going platinum.
   
 The one and only product that should be used for an ALL-OVER platinum look is Creamy Oil Bleach ( & even better than that is our Kit where we have BOTH Violet/Blue tinted DEVELOPER & NOW. . . . !)
 You can not get this kit anywhere else in the USA !  

What this Blog Shows you - is all the knowledge that so many of you were not privy to, and I am speaking of non-professional and Pro's just the same !  1

A couple of the large companies (Redken & Wella) used to make an Oil Bleach Kit a few years back............Redken make the professional model and the quality was good although it was a lot harsher than ours. . .  I used to wear a face mask using it. I am not boasting - I am being frank/honest and trying to give you the education you need to be able to both purchase the Kit (especially the NEW MODEL !!! ) and use it. A large majority of people all want to be platinum at some point in their life most everyone can try it ( but redheads and allergy sensitive people) at LEAST ONCE in your life ! ! ! !

I just made this brand new base which I have tinted a Violet/Blue in order to help with fighting brass and gold.. The Kit has 4 Steps. Comes with 2 applications. But everyone needs to understand one very important point. The Kit is made for your monthly Retouch. Therefore 2 re-touches come in 1 Kit. But............to get all over blonde, you MUST purchase multiple Kits. We are thinking of adding a from "SCRATCH to PLATINUM KIT". Which would meanit would be a kit for lightening the lengths. So stay tune for that. For now you will have to purchase multiple Kits. There is an option for purchasing 4 Kits at a discounted rate.

Toners are a useful part of the hair coloring process - some more than others....but if you are a Level 9 thru 12 Blonde most of you either want them or need them. They CAN be one of the most fun aspects of hair coloring because most are Demi-Permanent which means they wash out (somewhat) but they DO leave a line of Demarcation (which comes from using any Volume Developer.  If you do not want that line and you need a Toner.....then it is time to head over to our BOOST & BURST page of truly Semi-Permanent Hair Color Toners as the Pigment is in either a Shampoo or a Conditioner - using ZERO Developer - - - THUS .........NO Line of Demarcation ! Yahoooey !


WE have just added new Creamy-Oil Bleach Base, that with some of my very cool Knowledge of cosmetics have tinted the Creamy Oil Bleach Lightener a fantastic shade of VIOLET/BLUE. . . so that it is just one more step in the never-ending fight against brass/gold & Blorange when lightening hair!

My Next newest Addition will be a bottle of Creamy Oily Violet/Blue Based Bleach for that FIRST TIME APPLICATION ! 

Thank You for making our 10th Birthday such a smash success! Love You All !

VANISH - Our Awesome Hair Color Remover & Exactly How To USE:CORRECTLY !

Color Removal is an art ....a Science and a MUST for most you who visit our site. Over 50 % of you come to Killerstrands when you have exhausted all other choices. Somehow
GOOGLE ends up sending all people to us after they have tried all the big advertisers and companies that pump money into their advertising budgets. I understand that, we cannot afford to advertise so we just go on the good graces that eventually GOOGLE will send all of you who are desperate to my Blog and Store.

Over 100 times a week I receive "THANKS" for "finding" our website. I sure wish everyone of you would tell 1 or 2 people per day about us.............so that we could help each other out. Just think if you could help 1 or 2 people prevent having to go through the horrific story you have been through, to finally end up here and to see that my #1 goal is to help you learn how to repair your hair and take control over the color YOURSELF.

IF YOU SPEND THE TIME LEARNING HOW TO APPLY HAIR COLOR IN THE CORRECT METHOD . . . . THEN AND ONLY THEN IF IT IS SCREWED UP AT LEAST IT WAS DONE BY YOUR OWN HANDS, that is what sooooooooooo many of you tell me you would rather have happen. No one cares about your hair LIKE YOU DO< > therefore the reading of the rules and laws of hair coloring 101 will be read by you - (mostly) over and over until you completely understand them. UNLIKE the people who go to a cheap - uncaring - uneducated Hair Academy that spends not one day teaching their students HOW TO FORMULATE HAIR COLOR  ! ! ! !


THEY DON'T CARE  - - - - ->> BUT YOU DO . So read this Blog, read it and keep reading it and if that isn't enough spend the money to get a consultation about your hair color.....because once that is done - -you will have the correct directions on how to color your hair ! ! ! 

Readers Submissions: 

Thank you so much for your blog. I am so depressed about my expensive green (humiliating) highlights. I'm traveling to San Antonio, TX and have a salon I hope can fix them. My question, is it okay if they are Paul Mitchell trained colorists? Is there a big difference between Paul Mitchell and Vidal Sassoon trained? Thanks so much. Posting as anonymous because I don't want to hurt my hairdressers feelings, but when she does three clients at once, this is what happens. The color sat on my hair (not under a dryer) while she styled the other lady's hair. I didn't want her hurrying through the other lady's hair, but the 30 minutes she initially said we would wait for the color to sit came and went two times. :-( ???????????????

--> I have colored my hair for several years, and use Medium Golden Brown (I am totally gray). I also then have my hair highlighted afterwards. I changed beauticians, and the new one was using 20 volume to bleach the highlights. I told her I have always used 40, (I&#39;m not a beautician), and ask her why 20. She told me since I double process my hair that she felt using 20 would be easier on my hair. BUT, I also sat under a dryer for over 1 hr waiting for my hair to lighten. My question is this, if I use 40, and it takes shorter time, isn&#39;t that better on my hair than leaving the 20 volume on for over 1 hr? She fried my bangs, and I&#39;ve never had that problem before. I am using Argon Oil, and will keep it up to get my bangs back in order. Would you please respond back, and let me know? Thank you.....B. ??????????????


--> My mom suggested I dye my hair a light golden brown, BIG MISTAKE. It turned out dark brown with brassy roots. So then a hair dresser told me to dye it a light ash blonde which turned it a medium to light brown with orange/brassy roots. So I went and got a box of L&#39;Oreal 11.21 ultra pearl blonde. Question: Should I apply it to my roots first and if so about how long should I leave it on before doing the rest of my hair or should I do it vise/versa? Thank you in advance????????????

--> Can you please explain this...How do I check with 10 volume that all color has been removed after using the shampoo train and Vanish? VANISH or DE-CAP. Or finally use Vanish or DeCap to remove unwanted color in the fastest/best manner (altho is pricey) this is the number 1 way to remove hair color with ZERO damage to hair ! BE SURE TO CHECK WITH 10Volume - IF ALL COLOR has been REMOVED ???????


--> When using either vanish or Malibu CPR, is ALL of the deposit removed such that a 20 volume developer would be able to provide lift afterward, or would there still be some deposit left which prevents anything other than bleach from being able to provide lift? Basically, I'm aware that color won't lift color and wanted to know if a color remover alleviates that situation????

..............and this just a super small sample of the endless requests for help from poor people who have been led down the wrong road and no matter what these people have not been able to fix, have repaired or solve on their hair color problems - - there is not enough time in a day for me to answer them all.

The reason I am writing this is to tell all of you who write into the Blog and very kindly "ask-for-help" ....again, I just don't have the time to answer them all anymore. But all the answers are ALREADY IN MY BLOG ! ! ! 



So, what I want to do is to nicely encourage you all to take the time to read the Blog. I know it sounds boring and no one reads anymore. But, you are missing out in life by NOT READING. You truly are. I have written an entire -easy-to-relate to............... - EASY-TO UNDERSTAND mini Cosmetology course on the Blog. If you don't want to read it all at once -- read it as the topics come up.

For example: everyone seems to have a question about "how you check to see if all the color is out, AFTER YOU HAVE USED VANISH. " ???

The #1 most asked question this month ( there are more)....! ! ! ! 




If you read the directions it tells you to take the 10 Volume Developer ( that comes in THE KIT, but if you have not bought the kit you MUST purchase or find a 1-4 ounce bottle of 10 Volume developer. So..........
Say you have the Shampoo Train complete.................then you spend a couple hours running your hair through the Vanish Treatment - 2 seperate times. {within one box of VANISH there are 2 APPLICATIONS of Vanish for the hair } . 

It is very important that VANISH be applied in the 2 separate applications, if you want to study how hair color molecules work then you will see and understand 'why'...But the hair needs a break in between both applications in order for the VANISH to work to its utmost potential. 

YES, VANISH is Pricey, BUT.....there is ZERO I can do about that, as it is a miraculous process ..........so most things considered miraculous -- simply -- are not cheap. If you don't want to have to pay for something expensive then don't get your hair into predicaments like this. I don't have any miraculous answer for the price of VANISH.....EVERY time I buy it - to sell to you I give the guy 150 miles of SHIT, because I feel the same way. BUT NO ONE has duplicated this process, so its a ONE-OF-A-KIND product.

Do you know 15 years ago when I was doing VANISH treatments in the Salon the price started .......S-T-A-R-T-E-D.........at $500. ......................but most times it would end up in the $700.-$800.00 Range ....the person sits in the Salon for 8 hours 1 day to remopve the color correctly. That is a lot of time to take from 1 Hair Colorist............and up until I brought this product to the INTERNET, no one in public was able to purchase VANISH.  Its a professional product only.....YOU ARE ALL LOOKING AT IT THE COMPLETE WRONG WAY.
You have the directions from someone who has performed thousands of VANISH Color removals over the years and she has taught you every single trick she knows in how to use it correctly....AND
AND.................has even come up with a little trick called the Shampoo Train which eliminates 1 box of VANISH on many people.



But, still.................many many orders leave here with only purchasing 1 box of VANISH....and I shake my head just thinking, ''what a waste''

If you are going to use it.................
  • #1: Search the Blog for "VANISH"  and for "Color Removal" and read every single Post on the subject. BE absolutely sure you have at least a 2 ounce bottle of clear 10 Volume developer to apply to the hair after all your REMOVAL Processes...(just our it on the lengths in the front where you can really see the results. .if the hair darkens................. AT ALL............then you must apply another box of VANISH and the 2 treatments AGAIN. 
  • Remember this should not be something you do more than once, so you must get over the price, its a 1 time deal - so who cares. If you cannot afford it, then change your plans - as there is no other way of OLD HAIR COLOR REMOVAL, that does NOT damage the hair at all.

"Natural" Versus 'UN-Natural'.....'Organic Versus NON-Organic' ........the pH Scale ..... w/ Some Glitter Sprinkled On Top! !

There are many "natural" ingredients that are very harsh as well, that just should not be what you look for.  "Natural" and "organic" are the most fought about topics / the most argued over words in the cosmetics business right now. Every single month in my trade magazines will be another view on what one more group thinks the word "natural" and "organic" means - - please take that into consideration. Those words will never be the answer to the problem, so drop that theory.

Technically as I've said before . . . water is not really 'technically' natural - as funny as that sounds ... it does not come from nature - - it comes from the heavens. With scientists you should hear them fight over the word, it will simply - - - NEVER ....EVER  - BE SOLVED  - - ever. I feel both sides have valid points, so its simply time to move on from it.

Remember that there are also harsh and incompatible ingredients in nature for your hair, its needs to be a very simple study and honest reviewed by a competent cosmetic chemist that is not funded by any of the big corporate manufacturers, that is hard to find - no impossible.. When I began all this I tried to find a chemist to design me 3 certain products:
  • EFFECTIVE - Deep Conditioner
  •      "        "     - Color Lock / pH balancer / Porosity Equalizer
  • CONDITIONING - Oil Bleach Kit
 I talked to 16-16 men and 7 women.............not a 1 knew how to formulate without just using "buzz" word ingredients. I was forced to learn myself.

Begin NOW and never stop reading the ingredients on the label, you must -  you must - you must. I fully realize they seem intimidating, BUT that is how I started and a very famous cosmetic chemist told me when I began, just start reading and saying things you don't comprehend in the least - "over & over & over", they begin to sink in eventually. . . I taught myself everything that way so never EVER give up.

 (c) M.Tunger 0298

 I never took chemistry in school I was terrified of the "word'', but you know what? He was 100% correct. I couldn't pronounce Sodium Lauryl Sulfates,  and now I now the names of  15 by memory... remember I was raised a jock not an academic - so there is no one this is more foreign to, than me. It will make you feel proud of yourself the first time you pipe off the name of one of these scientific names with confidence - and YOU WILL! Talk to your girlfriends about them, people want to know about this subject, you become the new expert in your group of friends . . . that's how we all get smarter and all start helping each other have better hair. Wouldn't you rather be "looking' at nice hair when standing in lines at the Grocery store?

 I sure would - - it comes from proper education - that's the compliments I receive from 'you' - the readers - - all the time.


pH
Natural hair acidity prevents fungi and bacteria in the hair and scalp, and keeps the cuticle closed and healthy. Many of the hair products that people use disrupt the natural pH of the hair. A substance that is too alkaline will cause the hair cuticle to open, while a substance that is too acidic will cause the cuticle to contract. 



Most of you who read this Blog have colored hair....in order for the coloring process to take place we must use bleach or color that opens the cuticle and allows the hair coloring process to take place and then it contracts the cuticle to lock the color in.

Restoring the pH of the scalp may help prevent hair loss from dandruff, bacteria or fungus. Every liquid substance on Earth has a pH, or an acid-base, measurement. Very few substances are neutral; most are either acidic, such as vinegar, or basic, such as bleach. Human beings are no exception to this rule, having a pH balance of about 5 on the skin, including the hair and scalp. This low, or acidic, pH works as a protective mechanism, as germs cannot thrive in an acidic environment.

If you have permanently dyed or relaxed hair, your hair was first treated with a highly alkali substance to expose and change the hair's cuticle, and then, it was "neutralized" with a highly acidic substance to flatten the cuticle again. This is a damaging process and slightly acidic hair products are needed to keep the hair cuticle lying flat.



 INTENSIVE Killerstrands own COLOR LOCK is the most wonderful product for keeping the cuticle lying flat so I encourage you all to at least try it once so you may see how superb it is at locking your color and returning your pH to normal ! !

 Use it after a re-touch and /or after an application of BOOST & BURST to lock the color and shine in for twice as long as if you did not use it !

Its funny when I started this Blog 9 years ago talking about pH was completely foreign to people but now people have heard of it and are becoming more and more educated about the term and what it means . . . . .Lets review a little bit. 

Shampoo is the number 1 Searched for hair product on Google's big board of HAIR search "tags" and "sulfate-free shampoo" has been bumped up to number 2. Which means it comes from you, I like knowing what you want to know more about so I am going to stick with the GOOGLE for reference. This will be a gentle description of the term pH, which is so important when "shine" "health" and "color-lasting" are your goals with your hair. 

Shampoo is that product that is on your hair more than any single other product, some of you... use it every single day. With that being the case I feel I need to teach you all I can about it, which is a new concept for me. When I discovered how important it was on Google's scale of what 'you' look for under hair, I started to re-think my former stance on it. See, I can change - I love technology ever since I started this Blog it has become a new passion of mine. What a lot I have to learn though.

I am going to start on the pH scale as I feel it is so very important to understand in relation to shampoo and hair care products in general . I never know where to start  on this - -  again its the whole "chicken and egg" predicament, lets see how I do.


Potential of Hydrogen .....or pH. . . is the measurement of how acidic or alkali a substance is. It is judged on a scale between 0 and 14. Anything between 0 and 6.9 is acidic, 7 is neutral, and anything between 7.1 and 14 is alkaline. Human hair and scalp oil, sebum, has a pH balance of between 4.5 and 5.5.

Potential Hydrogen (pH)


Understanding what pH is and how is affects the skin and hair is essential to understanding most of the services that you get in a Salon or that you perform on your own noggin. This will be a brief overview of pH and how it works so then I will go right into pH and shampoos. I'm using a couple textbooks to help me with this, as much as I understand it, I tried writing my own post on the subject and ended up trashing it, my version was so confusing, I gave it to my neighbor to read and he had the most confused look on his face. So we will go with this and see how it works - he understood it and hair is the last thing he knows about!  

639px-PH_scale
 Its not necessary to fully understand pH, but I would like you to at least have an idea what it is for future reference. Having the proper pH shampoo makes ALL the difference in the world, as far as tangling and hairs condition at the end of the shampoo.

Many of you have complained about a particular shampoo that is Sulfate-free - thinking the sulfate-free is the cause, which couldn't be farther from the truth. The cause of very tangle-y hair post-shampooing is: improper pH of the shampoo, which is such a simple thing to fix. Certain manufacturers totally understand it, like Kera Care, he has all of his shampoos at the exact proper pH, BUT... the owner is Old School and is just now starting to understand that sulfates are bad, so until he gets rid of SLS I simply do not and cannot in good mind, recommend it. I've noticed he has finally added color protection shampoo, sulfate-free and pH balanced. I've written him numerous notes and others have has well.  

Again, tossing to the fact that I feel the 2 most important factors are the surfactant used and the pH when the formula is complete.

Water and pH

First we need to understand a bit about ions. An ion is an atom or molecule that carries an electrical charge. Ionization is the separating of a substance into ions. These ions have opposite electrical charges... An ion with a negative electrical charge is an anion and an ion with a positive electrical charge is a cation. Now Ions are at the base of that T3 Dryer that is such a big hit now which I will go into at a later date and subject.

In pure water, some of the water molecules naturally ionize into hydrogen ions and hydroxide ions. The pH scale measures those ions. The hydrogen ion (H+) is acidic..the hydroxide ion (OH) is alkaline, pH is only possible because of this ionization of water. Only aqueous solutions have pH, Non-aqueous solutions (oil and alcohol) do not have pH . . . without water there is no pH.

In pure water, every water molecule that ionizes produces one hydrogen ion and one hydroxide ion. Pure water is neutral because it contains the same number of hydrogen ions as hydroxide ions, meaning it is neither acidic nor alkaline. Pure water is 50 percent acidic and 50 % alkaline.




The pH Scale
The terms "parts hydrogen" or "potential hydrogen" are used to describe pH.  In fact, the term pH originates from the French term pouvoir hydrogene , or hydrogen power" and means the relative degree of acidity and alkalinity of a substance. Notice that pH is written with a small p and a capital H ( which represents the hydrogen ion, H+) the symbol pH represents the quantity of hydrogen ions.

The pH values are arranged on a scale ranging from 0 to 14. A pH of 7 indicates a neutral solution, a pH below 7 indicates an acidic solution and a pH above 7 indicates an alkaline solution. The pH scale is a logarithmic scale, this means that in a pH scale, a change of one whole number represents a tenfold change in pH. A pH of 8 is 10 times more alkaline than a pH of 7...a change of 2 whole numbers indicates a change of 10 times 10 or a one hundred-fold change. A pH of 9  is 100 times more alkaline than a pH of 7.

Pure water, with a pH of 7, is 100 times more alkaline than a pH of 5. Since the average pH of hair and skin is 5, pure water is 100 times more alkaline than your hair and skin, even though it has a neutral pH.   Pure water can cause the hair to swell by as much as 20 percent.

pH and Shampoo
Understanding pH levels will help you select the proper shampoo for yourself . Remember, the amount of hydrogen in a solution, determines whether it is more alkaline or acid, is measured on a pH scale that has a range from 0 to 14.
  • a shampoo that is more acid can have a pH rating from 0 to 6.9 
  • a shampoo that is more alkaline can have a pH rating from 7.1 to 14.
  • The higher the pH rating ( more alkaline), the stronger and harsher the shampoo is to the hair. A high pH shampoo can leave the hair dry and brittle.
  • Now why shampoo's don't have pH ratings printed on them instead of all the other words and BS I will never know, this is one of the key measures  of knowing if the shampoo is going to work correctly (of course there are others).
  • Ultimate pH for a shampoo you purchase?  5.0 - 6.0
The Chemistry of Shampoos
To determine which shampoo will leave your hair in the best condition, I must explain some of the chemical ingredients regularly found in shampoos. Most shampoo's share many ingredients in common. It is often the small differences in formulation that make one shampoo better than another for a particular hair texture or condition. 

Water is the main ingredient in all shampoos and commonly is added at the rate of 30-40% of the formula. Generally it is not just plain water, but purified or de-ionized ( ions removed) water. Water is usually the first ingredient listed, which indicates that the shampoo contains more water than anything else. From there on, ingredients are listed in descending order, according to the percentage of each ingredient in the shampoo or formula. This is how it is 'supposed' to be done but I would guess 8 times out of 10 it is not. Regulating hundreds of thousands of beauty products would require every single agency of the government shutting down and helping the FDA, it is virtually impossible, so it basically self-governed and you can imagine how successful and correct that maneuver is.

Surfactants
The second ingredient that most shampoos have in common is the primary surfactant or base detergent. These 2 terms, surfactant and detergent mean the same thing: cleansing or "surface active" agent.
A surfactant molecule has two ends" a hydrophilic or water-attracting "head" and a lipophilic or oil-attracting "tail". During the shampoo process, the hydrophilic head attracts water, and the lipophilic tail attracts OIL, this creates a push-pull process that causes the oils, dirt, and deposits to roll up into little balls that can be lifted off in the water and rinsed from the hair ( see the photos).



Other ingredients are added to the base surfactants to create a wide variety of shampoo formulas. Moisturizers, oils, proteins, preservatives, foam enhancer's and perfumes are all standard components of shampoos. On a previous post I listed 12 or surfactants that are considered safe, I have worked with each one and to be perfectly honest, shampoo's are not my forte...but wanted to just see - feel - smell and observe the materials with hair under the scope - for my own security - in  recommending them.  

I know that probably sounds super UN-scientific, but I feel that is what these super cosmetic chemists - miss. Just plain common sense issues, like the scent of a particular ingredient being so caustic, how could it possibly be gentle enough for hair. Or the texture of this is so rough and the scent so strong, there just has to be a better choice. That is what began my suspicions with Sodium Lauryl Sulfates 7 years ago.  When I opened the jar and seriously, could not take a breath of air it was honestly that burning to the skin in my nostrils, . . . that alone was a huge red 'common sense' - flag. Why no one but me - started talking about it, I will never know . 

Yes, later there have come many "Safe Cosmetics" organizations ... but they don't do it right either - They go the complete opposite direction and think everything is bad, and that's not at all how it works, either.  Not everything is as bad or unsafe. . .as the generalization of the other groups

74423778

Missing the dangers of SLS - is a crime -- it truly is. You can't 'ban' everything, that is the way politicians work...we have no room for that in cosmetics.  I just want to begin explaining this to you, its a big concept but many of you seem eager to learn it, I thought it would bore you all so earlier I decided not to open the bag, besides its bad for business . . . all the big companies won't advertise on my site because I say Boxed hair color kits are horrific - but look at me will ya ? ?  I can't keep my mouth shut ! 

 It would make my life a whole lot easier, if I just conformed and didn't talk about them - I would be making a lot better income off of advertising on this site. This has now become a very well known hair web site, I get lots and lots of traffic everyday without the big boys advertising on my site - 

But If I don't tell you the truth, you will never get it, and that really is pointless to me.  So . . .  there is the truth. I need your support and I need to know you all want to know the truth in this info - so I know I am doing it for you and you care.

s natural hair acidity prevents fungi and bacteria in the hair and scalp, and keeps the cuticle closed and healthy. Many of the hair products that people use disrupt the natural pH of the hair. A substance that is too alkaline will cause the hair cuticle to open, while a substance that is too acidic will cause the cuticle to contract. 



Most of you who read this Blog have colored hair....in order for the coloring process to take place we must use bleach or color that opens the cuticle and allows the hair coloring process to take place and then it contracts the cuticle to lock the color in.

Restoring the pH of the scalp may help prevent hair loss from dandruff, bacteria or fungus. Every liquid substance on Earth has a pH, or an acid-base, measurement. Very few substances are neutral; most are either acidic, such as vinegar, or basic, such as bleach. Human beings are no exception to this rule, having a pH balance of about 5 on the skin, including the hair and scalp. This low, or acidic, pH works as a protective mechanism, as germs cannot thrive in an acidic environment.

If you have permanently dyed or relaxed hair, your hair was first treated with a highly alkali substance to expose and change the hair's cuticle, and then, it was "neutralized" with a highly acidic substance to flatten the cuticle again. This is a damaging process and slightly acidic hair products are needed to keep the hair cuticle lying flat.



 INTENSIVE Killerstrands own COLOR LOCK is the most wonderful product for keeping the cuticle lying flat so I encourage you all to at least try it once so you may see how superb it is at locking your color and returning your pH to normal ! !

 Use it after a re-touch and /or after an application of BOOST & BURST to lock the color and shine in for twice as long as if you did not use it !
