Looking for the Perfect Dryer? Look No Further!

Every morning this week, I have been crossing my fingers and biting my lip while drying my hair – I can hear it – I just KNOW my blow dryer is going to bite the dust any day now. What’s a girl to do?

Hairdressers everywhere know exactly what I am talking about – you have a dryer you love, and if it dies, there should be a funeral. But what do you do? Stick with what you know and love, or look for something new, shiny, and potentially even more perfect that your dying dryer?

As much as I have been a very loyal Babyliss appliance user for 10 years, I am thinking about going in a new direction with my replacement dryer – only because I don’t think I can pass this one up! Check it out:

Ultra Smooth Professional Hair Dryer /1875 Watts by CRICKET

Why Ultra Smooth? Because it has a outlet filter INFUSED with Argan Oil and Keratin Protein! Now, I know you stylists are MUCH more talented with a brush than I am, but I can’t imagine that you would turn down any extra help you were offered! I also love that the nozzle is a bit shorter – I find dryers shaped like this are easier to handle.

I think Cricket has knocked it out of the park with this one. Check out all the other features:

Features:

  • Argan Oil & Keratin Protein infused outlet filter
  • High heat, high power professional dryer
  • Wind speeds up to 59 MPH
  • Compact & lightweight design (only 16 ounces)
  • Professional DC motor
  • 3 Heat / 2 speed settings
  • Cool shoot button
  • Concentrator attachment
  • 1875 Watts
  • 9′ Cord
What do you think? I think I will give it a whirl – who’s with me?

Makeup Pro Tip – Squalane Oil

Even though it has been another relatively mild winter, one effect of the season that stays consistent is dry, dehydrated and flaky skin. This can be especially tricky for makeup artists who need to make their clients’ faces look hydrated and luminous.

To combat dry skin and enhance the appearance of your cosmetic application, apply just a few drops of Squalane Oil to your makeup products, such as your foundation and blush. This clear and odorless product that is derived from olives is dye-free, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic, light and non-greasy. It can help nourish your clients’ skin AND help provide that wintry glow.

Treat Your Skin With Sea Salts!!

Are you offering sea salts to your clients?!! If not, take a look at all these amazing benefits they offer which will have you wondering why you waited so long!!

Bath sea salts are very high natural mineral contents, including magnesium, potassium, calcium, bromine, sodium, and chloride. These nutrients all consist of health benefits that will help promote healthy-looking, youthful skin.

Your clients will notice a difference in their skin tone:
After regular use your clients will notice their skin softer and firmer. The magnesium found in sea salt can help eliminate fluid retention, slow down aging and calm the nervous system. The grainy texture of sea salts assist in removing dull dead skin cells to reveal a fresher, newer layer of skin.

Cleaner Pores:
One of the main components of sea salts is calcium, which helps to prevent water retention and clogged pores, as well as strengthens bones and nails. The potassium in sea salts helps to energize the skin and balance skin moisture, while sodium assists in lymphatic fluid balance.

Increased Blood Circulation:
Sea salts are alkaline-based and help to de-acidify the body and help raise pH levels. This can also assist in balancing blood sugar levels and reduce the aging rate.

Muscle Relief:
The bromide found in sea salts can help relax muscles and ease muscle stiffness. Saltwater is a common treatment for muscle aches and pains, because it naturally penetrates the pores, enters into the bloodstream and tissues, and removes lactic acid accumulations, one of the roots of post-exercise pain.

Some of the internal benefits your clients will find from sea salt soaks include:
-Reducing levels of stress
-Dealing with Insomnia
-Increasing circulation
-Expelling toxins from the body

Please take a look below at some of the sea salts we sell at Pure Spa Direct:

Warm Fingers are Happy Fingers!

Few things make me more uncomfortable than being cold. Most spas and salons pay careful attention to this detail with warming blanks in treatments, checking the water temperature before a hair rinse, etc. Somehow though, the warm comfort idea escapes many manicurists. Manicure dishes ofen have cool water in them, lotions are not often warmed, acetone and solvents evaporate and make the skin cold too. Brrrrrrrrrhhhhh!!!

There is a simple solution though… for UNDER $3!!! The Deluxe Warming Manicure Bowl by DL Pro is soooooo simple, but soooooo effective! Specially designed for warming water, lotion, cuticle oil or acetone. The bowl consists of two parts, the outer container and the inner manicure bowl. The outer container is filled with hot water then locked into place to prevent leaking. Heat from the hot water warms up the contents of the inner bowl –water, lotion, oil or acetone — anything that is in the well of the inner manicure bowl.
Soooooo Nice!!! Ergonomic comfort design contours to the hand. Measures: 4-1/4″L x 3-1/4″W x 2″Deep.
Pretty neat, eh? Make your clients happier for less than $3. Order a Deluxe Warming Manicure Bowl by DL Pro for every manicure station today!
