Hair Coloring Assistance – There’s An App for That!

For all of those women out there that don’t know what hair color they should go with for their new hair color or for the stylists that may need a little help in assisting their clients on what color to choose, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. There’s an app for that!


L’OrĂ©al Paris has come up with an app available in Mac Apple Store for your Iphone or Ipad that will help people choose a color for their hair. One way to use the app allows people to scan the barcode on their products to learn about the color, while the second and more beneficial part of this app for stylists is clients answer a short questionnaire about what they want and then the app recommends colors. So, by the time they come to you, the guesswork on what color shade they would like is taken out of the mix.
Even though Pure Spa Direct doesn’t carry L’Oreal products we do carry Clairol and Wella. You can look at the color guide the app shows and compare it to the brand your salon uses to give the customer exactly what they want. Plus we have all the essential items needed for your hair coloring services, such as mixing kits and hair color accessories.

The Power of Peptides

Smoothing Peptides: Powerful antioxidants work synergistically to stimulate collagen synthesis and prevent loss of elasticity over time. Contains water-soluble DNA to form a thin protective layer acting as a second skin to fight against premature aging.


DERMOVIA Lace Your Face Compression Mask – a compression facial treatment mask that firms, lifts, repair and hydrates your skin. The only professional facial treatment that features LaceTex technology to radically repair and renew the skin.

Infused with clinical-grade ingredients that treat various skin conditions for long-lasting benefits. Uses gauze compression technology – a high-performance stretch lace fabric delivery treatment system infused with powerful skincare properties for immediate results.

How and why it works?
Key Ingredients (All Natural):

  • Multi-Peptides (Restructures) – Peptides tighten connective tissues to lessen fine lines and wrinkles. Stimulate cellular activity by building collagen, stimulating cellular renewal and cellular turnover.
  • Green Tea Leaf Extract (Refines) – Tea Leaf is antioxidant by nature and has also been shown to be the most effective agent against skin inflammation and contain antibacterial, anticancer and antiviral properties.
  • Vitamin C (Antioxidant) – Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is an antioxidant vitamin that helps create younger, firmer skin while fading signs of sun damage and blemishes.
  • Apple Stem Cell (Renews) – Apple Stem Cells reside in the basal layer of the epidermis. Their primary function is to replenish the skin as it undergoes wound repair to continuously and quickly renew the epidermis.
  • Algae Extract (Regenerates) – Sea Algae Extract brings nutrition, proteins and new life to aging skin cells. It promotes collagen growth, improves elastin structure and also acts as a powerful antioxidant to protect against ultraviolet radiation.
These masks are trending, and I see them all over social media! Not only are they different, but they give real results!

Pro Tip:

Introduce to your clients during a treatment!
For a cooling mask, refrigerate for 10 minutes prior to application for a refreshing facial anytime.


For a warm mask, submerge ouch in hot water for 1 minute. Unfold the mask carefully and test temperature on wrist prior to application.

Your clients will be hooked. Makes a phenomenal retail item for use in between services or as a gift!
