FORMULA 18: Healthy Hair on the Fast Track

Posted on by webmaster in Hair Solutions Comments Off on FORMULA 18: Healthy Hair on the Fast Track

What if there was a treatment that offered long-term protection, strengthened the hair fiber and created a smoother appearance? There is, and it’s FORMULA 18, F18 for short, developed by Enjoy Hair Care. We at Karline’s Salon like to think of this plant-based reinforcement treatment as healthy hair on the fast track. Here’s why:   

Enjoy Hair Care describes FORMULA 18 as:

A chemically resilient material that ionically binds to the hair’s cuticle and offers long-term protection from harsh hair color, free radicals, peroxides, and environmental stressors.  Damaged hair has a raised cuticle, while healthy hair has a smooth, closed cuticle.  FORMULA 18 penetrates between uplifted scales in the cuticle to create a stapling effect with a smoother, healthier appearance.  FORMULA 18 is a blend …to aid in reducing and fixing damage done to the cuticle while simultaneously strengthening the hair fiber.

So what does this mean for you?  FORMULA 18:

  • Instantly repairs hair
  • Mends split ends
  • Locks in Moisture
  • Enhances strength and
    durability
  • Maintains your hair integrity
  • Gives long-lasting protection
  • Leaves the hair feeling softer and smoother

Mane: a reference to hair
Monday: the second day of a hair professional’s weekend

Even on a stylist’s day off, she – that would be me – is still thinking about your hair! Welcome to my Mane-ly Monday, a time and space for collective observations and opinions on all things hair: the trends, techniques, treatments, tools, environment and more. As I reflect and recharge, I’d like to take a moment to brag about the Karline’s Salon product of the month, Paul Mitchell’s Awapuhi Wild Ginger Styling Treatment Oil. Even if you cannot pronounce the awesome word, Awapuhi, you’ll love what it will do for your hair.

Awapuhi (Zingiber zerumbet) is also known as bitter ginger, shampoo ginger, wild ginger and pinecone ginger. It is a perennial plant found in many tropical countries. You will find Awapuhi used in herbal remedies for ailments such as indigestion, toothaches and sprains. You can even drink the flower gel to quench thirst. But, Awapuhi is also commonly used in hair shampoos and conditioners to soften and shine. I must try its other uses as described in this Wikipedia entry:

Hawaiian women often pick or cut the flowerheads of this plant in the forest, as they approach a pool or waterfall for a refreshing summer bath, leave the flowers atop a nearby rock, and then squeeze the sweet juices into their hair and over their bodies when the swim is completed. The sudsy juice is excellent for massage, also.

Paul Mitchell has deep roots with Awapuhi, a plant that is native to Hawaii, where, more than 25 years ago, the company’s founders purchased 30-acres to grow the wild ginger plant. The John Paul Mitchell Systems Awapuhi Farm also operates as a nature retreat with organic gardens, fruit trees, and nature trails; a place, they say, to enjoy the simple life, where you can reconnect with all aspects of sustainable living. Perhaps I’ll get there someday, but until I do, I’ll share the essence of this wonderful plant in the care of your hair.

Welcome to my Mane-ly Monday, a time and space for collective observations and opinions on all things hair: the trends, techniques, treatments, tools, environment and more.
