Why Salons Prefer Bleach Safe Towels

I think that some Salon / Spa owners overlook the importance of nice towels. I personally go to a high end salon that uses old, scratchy, cheap black salon towels with bleach stains ALL over them. Truth is, having this stiff, itchy towel wrapped around my neck for 2.5 hours during balayage is less than comfortable. And seeing such a beat up commodity as a client makes me feel like the owners just don’t care. (I feel the same way when they hand me a beat up old smock with a broken zipper — it’s like REALLY??!!)

Pure Spa Directs has a large variety of towels, but Salon & Spa buys prefer the ORIGINAL BleachSafe® towels for their quality, longevity and beauty. That’s because all BleachSafe towels are 100% premium cotton, long lasting, fast drying, softer & more absorbent than any other fade resistant towels, AND they are available in 13 vibrant colors.

BleachSafe® color towels are resistant to all bleaches and peroxides. Stains can be removed by laundering with hot water or chlorine bleach without fading or damaging the fabric. TOUGH STAINS, GERMS AND BACTERIA COME OUT, WHILE THE COLOR STAYS IN!

The difference is in their patent pending process which keeps BleachSafe towels looking fresher– longer. It’s NOT a coating, but in the actual fabric & will last for the life of the towel.

The best salons in the country choose Blu Sand BleachSafe towels. Upgrading your towels helps to upgrade your image. We strongly recommend Beach Safe!

Some of the best salons in the country prefer Bleach Safe, such as:
Arrojo Studio, Aveda Institutes, Bliss Salon, Bumble & Bumble, Carenza Color Cutting Group, Paul Labrecque, Canyon Ranch Spas, Christophe, Fred Segal Beauty, Four Season Resort & Spas, Gavert Atelier Beverly Hills

Day 17 of Gelish Manicure – Shine & Color Still Going Strong

Hello all! I just wanted to give some personal feedback on my Gelish experience since we picked up this amazing nail line.

My Gelish manicure was done 17 days ago….and all 10 nails are still holding on strong! As you can see from my photo, the color has not faded, scratched or chipped. The color intensity and shine is still rich and glossy. Though this polish could go the 21 day distance, my nails are growing strong and fast with this product on! I do have some slight wear at the edges, BUT that is because some of my nails were extremely short at the time of the Gelish application. I’ve learned that capping the edges properly can be challenging when the clients’ nails are extremely short. The nails that I am showing wear on were definitely not capped at the edges because they were only nubs at the time of application. The official Gelish trainer repeatedly stated that there were 2 points critical for Nail Pros to follow to ensure lasting Gelish manicures:

    1. Apply Base Coat as thin as possible. It should not be “slick or shiny” looking – it should look “orange peel shiny — with texture”. Overuse of base coat is the most common problem with applying Gelish. If you have slick shine BEFORE you cure, you have used too much foundation.

    2. CAP THE FREE EDGE WITH EVERY LAYER! Our recommendation is to cap the free edge first, then apply product to the nail bed. If you cap the free edge first, when you pull the color down the nail plate, you remove the bulb at the free edge. If you cap at the end, you risk leaving a bulb at the free edge.

Other than some grow-out (hey, I can’t control how fast my nails grow, they thrive with Gelish!) my polish still looks great. At 17 DAYS! Under normal circumstances, I can’t keep my polish looking this good for 7 days! It is still in tact, with a shine that looks like it was just applied. Definitely A , Gelish!

Unsung Hero Alert: IngrownZone Triple Action Post Depilatory Lotion

If you have ever spoken to the team here at Pure Spa Direct, you know we LOVE to tout the wonders of the IngrownZone products. While we often focus our attention on the spot-treatment Cream, I have recently been absolutely LOVING the Triple Action Post Depilatory Lotion!

This is a light lotion that moisturizes without being heavy or greasy, is naturally formulated with active ingredients to reduce the appearance of unsightly ingrown hairs and bumps associated with hair removal, while also slowing hair growth. The natural botanicals help the skin feel refreshed and moisturized after waxing, keeping the freshly waxed skin supple and hydrated.

Not only for use after waxing, but this lotion is also amazing after shaving – it keeps those ashy legs at bay while reducing irritation. As someone who is very sensitive to lotions and hates the heavy, greasy, slimy feel left behind by many, I LOVE the light refreshment this lotion offers!

Use to finish all of your hair removal services, and retail it to your clients for use at home too! Once you try it, you will never want to use another after-wax lotion!
