Something New for Men with Gray Hair

Everyone is talking about Going Green!
Did you know that there are just as many men Going Gray? And if your name isn't Tim Gunn, Barak Obama, George Clooney or Anderson Cooper, you may be sporting undesirable gray hair you want to phase out.
Men, if you find yourself text messaging rather than being in the social scene because you are speckled with gray, the new REDKEN Color Camo for Men has a full line of products that will keep you from texting: afaik u 1daful 2nite (all for I know you look wonderful tonight), so you can phase out gray, live in real time and love your look.

What REDKEN Color Camo has for Men?
• Reveal younger-looking haircolor in only 5 or 10 minutes
• Customize how much gray you want to blend
• Applied quickly and easily right in the shampoo area
• Leaves hair with natural-looking results that fade gradually

What can I expect as my hair grows out?

Camo will gradually fade over time. You won't see any major difference or off-color results. It's a formula designed specifically for men.

How much gray will it cover?

Camo doesn't cover the gray completely; it just reduces the amount of gray in a very believable way. You'll see more "pepper" among the salt and pepper.

How much time will it take each visit?

Ten minutes is all it takes. And color camo applies so quickly it can be done at the shampoo bowl.

Will it damage my hair?

Like all Redken For Men products, Camo contains ingredients that actually improve the condition of hair such as protein for strength and quinoa oil for healthy shine.

So, if you are beyond the years of wondering "why" your hair is turning gray and want to "fix" and phase out gray hair, check out the before and after photos to see REDKEN camo for Men in action. Then make an appointment at or call Troy Richard Salon at 214-618-8071

REDKEN for Men has related products:
• Color Camo Developer
• Go Clean - daily care shampoo
• Finish up - daily weightless conditioner

Love your look.

Pureology makes hair shiny, silky, sexy, beautiful, and vibrant. Simple really.

The do's and don'ts of technology and hair care.
It seems we have innovations for everything we do. There's even advanced technology like the ground-breaking ingredients in Pureology hair products that dramatically improves your hair condition. Pureology allows you to scientifically maximize your hair color retention in colour-treated hair. This innovation assures longer lasting hair colour guaranteed.
Do listen to what people are saying.
You know a product is hot when everyone is giving it shout-outs, and making the magazine headlines of Woman's Day, Shap, InStyle, fitness, allure, Ok, US, Glamour, Brides, Redbook, Intouch, Self, Lucky... and everyone from loyal celebrity to national syndicated television shows like The Early Show, The Today Show, and even E! all chant how Pureology makes hair shiny, silky, sexy, beautiful, and vibrant. Simple really.

Don't be diverted.
If you've not heard the word "diversion" then pay close attention and watch this short video by David Craggs, President of L'Oreal Professional Products Division. Diversion is when you buy products sold exclusively in salons or spas at your local supermarket, drugstore, online or at a discount cart at the mall. When you find these salon professional products at "unauthorized" places– it's diversion. David tells us why we should purchase salon products from our stylist.

Hair Care & The Winter Doo's

It's that time of year when more of you glam girls top-off your unique doo's with hats and scarves – in-tune with the winter fashion trends. You know what that means! A lot of dryness and flatness on top. So you need to turn-up the volume and apply the best products to hold your hair style together, longer.

Keeping healthy hair starts with the best products!
It's important that you remember that your hair is directly related to the health of your scalp, it's so important to use the best products that won't destroy your hair's natural oils that are needed for your hair to remain radiant, healthy and shiny. Troy Richard Salon is a REDKEN Certified Salon. This means your hair always receives the best products known around the world.

6 Hair Care Tips for Winter Hair Care

1. Dry-Scalp Revenge
Itchiness and irritation are common during the winter and notorious for dryness. So, wash your hair a little less often and choose a sensitive scalp shampoo - which is normally creamier. Also try to avoid those products that are formulas for dandruff-prone scalps. Remember dandruff is caused by an oily-scalp, rather than a dry—scalp.

Dandruff Control
Powerful dandruff-fighting formulas with pyrithione zinc, a highly effective anti-dandruff ingredient, help reduce flaking, irritation and itching. Leaves scalp hydrated, clarified and relieved and hair shiny, light and airy.

2. Don't Frizz-out
Prevent frizz that your winter hat can cause, and keep your soft and silky hair by using a leave-in conditioner or day cream. If your hair is already flattened, add body and bounce by misting a brush with a hairspray that has a light-hold, then gently comb through your hair.

Smooth Down
Smoothness for very dry, unruly hair. Hair is up to four times smoother*. Get ultra-smooth, shiny hair that's in control. New Smooth Down is specially formulated to enrich and tame extremely dry, coarse, unruly hair. Redken's exclusive Interbond Conditioning System delivers a unique Ionic Smoothing Complex of macadamia oil, candelilla wax and cationic refiners to help replenish oils, provide intense smoothing and a long-lasting, humidity-resistant, frizz-free finish.

3. Keeping It Moist
Have fun at home, pour on your deep conditioner at least once a week. Then seal in the moisture for the whole day with your leave-in conditioner.

Clear Moisture
Lightweight moisture for normal to dry hair. Infuse normal to dry hair with weightless moisture. Redken's exclusive Interbond Conditioning System, combined with a unique, ultra-light Micro-Moisture Complex, helps restore, rebalance and retain optimum moisture without adding weight. Hair is replenished, light and shiny.

4. Color Police
Coloring your hair can sometimes make it weaker and can cause a little breakage, that's why it's very important that you deep-condition your hair, and lock in the moisture.

Color Extend
Protection for color treated hair. Extend the life of color-treated hair by fighting the four causes of color change. New advanced Color Extend offers maximum color security. Environmental aggressors, poor cuticle condition, color-altering minerals and water can attack haircolor, causing it to fade and dull. Through Redken's exclusive Interbond Conditioning System and a powerful 360 degree Protective Complex, Color Extend helps shield, stabilize and secure color intensity. It's full spectrum protection that keeps color-treated hair smooth, manageable and radiant.

5. Celebrity Styling
If you're heat-styling your hair pretty often, make sure you're protect your hair with a gel or salve; this will ensure that any heat burns away the product, and not your expensive hair color.

Urban Experiment
Hairwear for style innovators

6. Shampoo & Conditioning
Take careful thought to the brand of your shampoo and conditioner; if you're not sure what to do, call your stylist and ask what's the best shampoo and conditioner for your your hair type and color to prevent fading and brassiness.

Body Full
Volume for normal to fine hair. Boost volume and defy gravity with Body Full, the first style-infused haircare* collection. Redken's exclusive Interbond Conditioning System delivers styling polymers that combine with carbohydrates and protein to form the new Anti-Gravity Complex. This unique technology provides normal/fine hair with bodifying strength and density plus style retention. Hair is full of volume, long-lasting style and shine.

Be more inclined to show-off your fashion statement
at your next holiday party and function,
and always love your look.
