At Bigger Better Hair, we love hair color but sometimes there is a sad reality: your hair can only take so much before it begins to break.  The last thing we as professionals will ever do is be a part of a hair color that risks breaking or damaging your hair. To prevent this, we always start each service off with an in depth consultations and we may suggest adding an Olaplex treatment to your hair color formulation. 

Here we will focus on what Olaplex is, and hopefully give you some insight on why your stylist might recommend using it with your color service or adding it to your hair care collection at home. 

What is it?

Olaplex is a brand who shook the hair color industry with its ground breaking solution that protects and strengthens hair like never before.  Instead of traditional repair products that masque the damage, Olaplex uses a three-step process that includes a global patented formula to actually repair broken bonds in the hair.  Olaplex repairs damage from chemical, thermal and mechanical stress.

Below we will outline what the service is, who it is best for, and help you better understand a Brazilian Blowout Treatment

Why Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Treatment?


We have tried other brands claiming to offer similar results, and none of them have come close to the results of the original Brazilian Blowout.

 

A Brazilian blowout treatment gives stellar smoothing results that also double as a conditioning treatment for your hair. In 2012 Brazilian Blowout reformulated the smoothing solution to remove any possible exposure to harsh chemicals. In our professional opinion, this is by far the most effective smoothing treatment available.

Who should get one?


Something special about the Brazilian blowout is that it has no specific hair type needed. Whether you have curly, straight, or slightly wavy the Brazilian blowout is meant to smooth frizz and soften the hair.

 

We have clients from super fine hair to extremely thick hair who we perform a Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment on. Many people mistake this treatment for a straightening treatment, which is incorrect.

 

A Brazilian Blowout tames your frizz, lessens the time it takes to smooth out your hair, and gives smooth soft strands for up to 3 months.

How it works:


Through the use of innovative and breakthrough bonding technologies, the Brazilian blowout product actually improves the health and condition of your hair. 

 

It creates a semi permanent protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle. 

 

The end result is smooth, healthy, frizz-free hair with beautiful shine for up to 3 months!  

 

This is the only product on the market that actually improves the condition of your hair while smoothing and straightening your strands.  The entire in-salon treatment is completed in just 90 minutes!

The minute you leave the salon, you can wash and air dry your hair, workout, put your hair in a ponytail or clip and it will be smooth, frizz-free and radiant!  Results last up to 12 weeks for your first treatment.  If you maintain treatments on a regular basis, the results can last longer.

How to maintain


To ensure long lasting results, we highly recommend using products that contain no sulfates, parabens, or other harmful chemicals as they can strip the treatment from your hair.


We carry a fabulous line called Arrojo New York. It is a safe and non-damaging hair line that contains no harmful chemicals and is jam packed with skincare grade ingredients.

The Arrojo Shine Lux collection is a perfect cocktail to ensure your Brazilian Blowout lasts as long as possible

We recommend using Arrojo Shine Lux collection, or if you have thick or coarse hair, we recommend using the Arrojo Moisturizing collection.

Not only will this brand keep your Brazilian Blowout from fading, it will continue to soften and add strength to your hair.

Kiersten De La Cruz is a Dallas hair colorist, cut specialist, and budding extensions guru that is part of the Bigger Better Hair family. She is passionate about her craft, driven to excel her career, and works so very hard to deliver an unmatched salon experience for her guests. The proof is in the hair that leaves her chair, and it goes without saying we are so very glad to have her as part of our team.

Below, Kiersten answers some questions to give you a bit of insight as to who she is as a person, and a hairstylist.

What are some interesting things to know about you, Kiersten?

I was born in California, but I am an honorary Texan! I have two chihuahuas, Rocket and Ruca.


Why did you choose Bigger Better Hair as your salon home?


I wanted to create beautiful hair alongside some of the best stylists in Dallas. So this crew of bad asses adopted me as one of their own!

What sets you apart as a Dallas Hair Stylist?

I believe that our outer beauty is a reflection of our inner self. My mission is to help bridge that gap, through co-creative salon experiences and authentic connections with my guests.


What are some of your favorite services to do for clients?

I love smoothing services, like Brazilian Blowouts for my frizzy haired guests. I enjoy creating length and volume with our Bigger Better Hair Skinny Tape Extensions. And I love to create fantasy color, rainbow hair all day!H

Who are some of your beauty inspirations that you are inspired by and follow?


My work is influenced by a lot of different things. I follow @juxtapozmag  to see what is going on in the art world.

 

@Jayne__edosalon is my current inspiration for chic bohemian haircuts.

 

And I’ve recently been inspired by @honkytonkwomann for her rock n’ roll fashion.

What are some of your favorite places to spend off time in Dallas?


I like Deep Ellum for night life. I’ll catch a movie at the Texas Theatre in Oak Cliff. And when the weather is nice you can find me and the dogs on a patio just about anywhere!

What beauty products are your “must haves” if you are stranded on an island? 


R+Co High Dive leave in, Shiseido Ultimate Suncare, and Burt’s Bees Pomegranate lip balm.

Follow Kiersten!


Yep, you read that right: Perms are back!  I have to admit I was in denial when I heard the perm was back on trend.  I literally shook my head and said “nah”. Then I saw what the “American Wave” looked like and how it was way different from what I learned in beauty school on those sweet, little ladies with blue hair. 

As much as I love working with women of all ages, the truth is most clients today aren’t looking for the same perm our mothers and grandmothers are used to!  Today, modern beach waves are a new Dallas hair trend that I’ve been loving seeing on social media and celebrities recently. 

Here are my thoughts on the new “American Wave” modern beach wave we are now offering at Bigger Better Hair, in Dallas.

This isn’t the “old school” perm


When I was doing perms in cosmotology school let’s just say none of the other students volunteered to have one done. It wasn’t the look anyone wanted, the curls looked like our grandmother’s version of a perm, and let’s not mention the smell. Plus, they were so damaging that most of the time the client’s hair looked like total dry and frizzy hair.

New Technology and Formulations


The “American Wave” is an entirely new formula that creates soft, natural-looking wave and curl patterns for today’s style-conscious client.  Whether you want to increase volume, make curls, or add beach waves this salon service offers the permanent creation of texture that’s all over magazines, and trending on social media.

 

Strong Curls or Soft Waves: This wave perm allows us to customize the look!


The system uses editorial hair setting techniques for fashionable looks.  Unlike previous perm formulations, this product reduces stress on hair, smoothes the cuticle, and encourages wave and curl patterns that are tailored to the look you want to achieve: strong curls, light volume, or soft waves.

 

 

 

5 things to know before getting an American Wave perm


1.) Your styling routine will immediately change! 

No needs to stress, we are trained and love helping people step outside their box.  Part of the service includes us helping you with some tricks and tips to easily style your newly wavy hair.  You can still blowdry, and use hot tools, but why would you keep doing all of that to your hair when it will air dry beautifully? (Being a natural curly haired girl myself, I know all the ins and outs!) 

 

2.) Your hair products will probably need to change. 

Just like if you were to go platinum blonde in the summer, deepen your hair with a rich color in the fall, or as the seasons change, this wave perm is going to alter your hair.  Having hair products that help protect your strands, and encourage the natural wave can either make or break your experience.  

 

3.) This will not look like the 80’s perm your grandma got!

If you are looking for something retro I’m sure we can refer you to a local beauty school that’s learning perms nearby.  This is a modernized version, with much more on-trend end results!  

 

4.)  No, they don’t smell as bad as you may remember.

Part of the re-formulation from American Wave is to soften the harsh smell we all think of if we knew what old versions of perms smelled like!  The chemical inside the formula that re-structures your hair’s wave pattern is, unfortunately, not the best smelling thing but the American Wave helps masque it significantly.   

 

5.) You aren’t stuck with curly hair after having the service done.

What the wave does is re-structures your hair to air-dry wavy.  You can still use hot tools to blowdry your hair, and irons to smooth and/or straighten.  Full disclosure: we highly recommend you use heat protectants, and low to medium heat when using hot tools after a wave perm.  After all: why get the wave if you’re going to smooth it out or use a curling iron more than half the time you style it?   

 

Who should NOT get a wave perm


At Bigger Better Hair, we have no problem saying “No” if our gut says it’s not right.  After all, we want you to love your hair, and we want to be happy with the end result ourselves as professionals!  Damaging your hair, or doing this on someone who hasn’t thought the whole thing through is something we will never do intentionally.  We’re all about full disclosure, and if it fits what you’re looking for then let’s do it!  Here are some things that automatically say a wave perm is not for you:

  1.  50% or More Highlighted/Lightened hair: Sorry ladies, but hair that has 50% or more highlights/bleach is not a good match for any other chemical as it highly increases the odds of damage.  So anyone who is a solid blonde that you didn’t grow naturally, sorry girls but it’s not for you!
  2. Previously Damaged Hair: If you’ve recently had a crazy mishap with color that damaged your hair, the answer isn’t another chemical.
  3. The girl who only styles her hair one way – The secret to having wavy hair is being flexible with your style expectations.  One day you might diffuse your hair and it look perfect, the next time you might have to touch up a few curls if they didn’t dry right, and occasionally you may blow out your hair for a smooth style with natural body.

  • If you’re looking for an easy air dry style with Waves…
  • If you’re looking for more body to your style and want some instagram trending hair…
  • If you’re willing to commit to a style regimen with minimal hot tools…
