I developed these products because I was lucky enough to study Cosmetic Chemistry under a wonderful Cosmetic Chemist that we shockingly lost one morning when we all turned our computers on about 4 years ago. He taught many of us the proper way the art of how and why all of these products we buy for our hair and our face, work and most importantly - HOW-TO-MAKE-THEM
One of the most important products I carry and make is, GLEAM. Gleam is the combination of over 14 Oils , extracts, vitamins and amino acids - there is not 1 oil that even comes close to it, in the repairing factors it does on the hair strands.. Gleam is ABSOLUTELY necessary to give the strands the lipids needed for that shine you all desire so damn much....Gleam - - makes the cuticle lay down which is what reduces and ultimately gets rid of all FRIZZ. Even the words "hair" and "oil" conjure a greasy, un-showered, un-stylable mess in our heads, that most of us work very hard to avoid.
What then, is the deal with Gleam, a hair oil, a product that is intended to be deliberately applied to your hair? Who on earth would encourage such a slippery, slimy practice?
Me, that's who, someone who has study the structure of hair and the making of hair products for nearly 15 years now. I say that it's high time we ditched our ill-conceived notions about hair oils, because there's a new generation of lighter, multi-faceted ones that do anything but render your hair into an oil slick. "The Oils of today are lighter carefully formulated products that, if applied correctly, will avoid any idea of an oil-slick.
Gleam can do the job of your leave-in conditioner, styling cream, frizz serum, and shine spray in one. It's a styling product more than a treatment product.
When you're using a hair oil to style your hair, apply it from ends to mid-length to avoid the oily scalp pitfall. I also want to stress the importance of starting with a small amount until you know exactly how much your hair needs -- you can always apply more. Once you get the hang of it -- and toss the seven other hair care products that are taking up valuable bathroom room -- you'll wonder how you ever lived without hair oil in the first place.
Now for those of you determined to solve your frizzy oil and your hair color retention ( how long hair color actually stays in your hair)....then you will need the 2nd part of the dynamic DUO called the 200WATT KIT !
THRIVEN, when use at least once a week completely changes the make-up of your hair. This is a conditioner that is left on the hair over night, and a conditioner that is so rich in goodies and proteins that your hair has truly never received such a JOLT ! It never has woken up and stood at attention so well AND for SO DAMN LONG ! ! !
The biggest secret?
Sleeping with it in.
You know the magic your face receives when sleeping in those fancy multi hundred dollars creams?? Well, SAME PRINCIPAL!
