WHAT IS MAGIC SLEEK?
Magic Sleek has been rigorously tested for safety and effectiveness, and is 100% formaldehyde free containing no methylene-glycol or any other harsh chemicals that produce formaldehyde when heat is applied. Magic Sleek has none of the health risks or side effects of other products. Magic Sleek is safe for women of all ages and can be used on bleached hair, ethnic hair, and even virgin hair. Simply by adjusting the technique used, Magic Sleek can be customized to cater to different hair types and offer a variety of results. All with the same three-step system, you can achieve a pin-straight look, you can straighten the hair while still retaining body, or you can remove frizz, redefining a curl entirely.

Ingredients that break down into formaldehyde include:
Formalin
Formic aldehyde
Methanol
Methylene glycol
Methylene oxide
Oxomethane

Magic Sleek’s main active ingredient is tannin, an element widely used in tanneries to leave leather waterproof, soft, flexible, and unbreakable. Our laboratory managed to synthesize elements from the family of tannins and brought them to use in cosmetics.

Also in its composition, Magic Sleek contains a natural Argan oil extract, which provides moisture to the hair.
With consideration to the health of ones hair, the pigmentation is purple to provide prevention of an anti-yellow tone of the hair during the thermal process. We achieve a treatment that strengthens and rejuvenates the wires, shields the cuticles, adds softness and shine to the hair, and prevents the action of free radicals that cause premature aging. It also helps to moisturize the scalp and hair, protect the color, and decrease the aggression of other chemical treatments.

In addition to the Tannins and Argan oil, we have Amino Acids. The water amount is an important factor for hair and skin. A tissue, called the cuticle, on the surface of the hair plays an important role in water retention, and Amino Acids are ingredients that moisturize the cuticles. Hair that is dry and dull shows that the cuticles are badly damaged, due to a decreased amount of Amino Acids. Many people dye their hair, but the dye and the chemicals damage the hair, especially the cuticles. It was found that shampoos, conditioners and treating agents containing certain types of Amino Acids prevent the hair from breaking due to the increase of the water retention capacity.
Magic Sleek acts on peptide bonds rather than sulfur bonds. With Magic Sleek, the hair treated with Amino Acids becomes “soft” and “hydrated.”

In short, our unique combination of Tannins, Argan oil extracts, and Amino Acids are what set Magic Sleek apart from any other hair straightening system on the market today

We now have a full time nail technician offering safe manicures and pedicures. Jami utilizes coconut oil lotions and sugar scrubs and a safe local polish line called JoShik. The polish long lasting and durable while keeping your nails healthy.

JoShik Polish (Pronounced Jo-chic means: Satisfaction, with ease & happiness) is a Chicago based nail polish brand that gives a thumbs down to toxins. It was created by a wife, mother and a health enthusiast with the goal of bringing high quality, affordable, luxurious, vegan nail polishes to young girls and discerning modern women.

Her inspiration came from her first pregnancy which brought her so much awareness of what she could eat or apply to her body without bringing harm to her unborn child. As years passed, she noticed a growing trend of mothers spending quality time with their daughters at nail salons. She was curious about what was lurking in those tiny bottles and she discovered that most mainstream nail polishes contain harmful chemicals that can trigger asthma, irritate the skin and can cause nails to become brittle and weak. What was most disturbing is that they are carcinogens and have even been linked to birth defects. She has eliminated these harmful toxins so you can polish away with ease.

JoShik polishes are fast drying, durable and glossy with a gel-like effect and contain none of these harmful toxins. They are safe for children and moms-to-be.

JoShik Polishes are made in the USA, and are vegan, cruelty-free and PeTA certified because we do not believe in testing on animals nor using any animal extracts.

JoShik Polish is open to event collaborations that help empower women and provide food, clothing, and shelter to children. Below are some of the organizations we have partnered with that are doing great things to help women and children. Polish with ease, polish for hope. JoShik Polish

All About Cezanne

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Cezanne is non-toxic, naturally safe and effective. There is no vapor or fumes, so no need for masks, gloves or ventilation during the treatment—it’s nature’s way of smoothing.

Our smoothing treatment is 100% formaldehyde-free. It’s also free from any other kinds of aldehydes and harmful toxins, for that matter, and it’s as long-lasting as the current top products.

It’s hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested, won’t irritate the scalp and won’t release any noxious gases. Cezanne actually strengthens the hair, using a revolutionary low pH technology that restores bonds that are broken or damaged during thermal, mechanical or high pH services.

What are the active ingredients?

Our proprietary and unique smoothing treatment formulation is composed of Aloe Vera, Sericin (a component of silk), keratin, Glycolic Acid, vitamins and botanical extracts.

What vitamins and botanical extracts does Cezanne contain?

Cezanne contains Vitamins C, E, B3, B5, B6 and Sugar Cane, Lemon, Apple and Green Tea Extracts.

What is Sericin?

Sericin is a natural protein produced by the silk worm, Bombyx mori. In silk, Sericin acts as cement between filaments of fibroin.

Why Sericin?

Sericin possesses a high affinity for the keratin in hair. In hair, Sericin acts as cement between reticulated proteins, sealing in moisture, adding luster, protecting bonds and locking hair into a smoother, straighter form. There is no other smoothing product in the world that uses Sericin in the way it’s used in Cezanne.

What is Glycolic Acid?

Glycolic Acid is a popular anti-aging ingredient that has been recognized for many years.

Why Glycolic Acid?

Glycolic acid is safe for the stylist and for the client. It fully penetrates the hair shaft, enhancing softness, improving manageability, preventing breakage and protecting from heat.

Are You Allergic to Hair Color?

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Owning an organic, toxin-free salon, many potential clients call to inquire about the products we use, hopeful that they will finally be able to have their hair colored without the itching and burning so many people think they have to endure. While most people who do experience that discomfort aren’t allergic to the products, many people do have an allergy to an ingredient called para-phenylenediamine, commonly known as PPD.

Exposure to PPD can cause coughing, dizziness, headaches, and labored breathing, according to the CDC website. In addition, some people may see skin irritation, eye pain and swelling and blurred vision. Europe, which has more stringent laws than the U.S., has either banned it altogether or regulate the percentage allowed in hair coloring products to no more than six percent.

At Upstairs Hair Affair, all of our color lines are either entirely free of PPD, with one having less than one percent total. We work hard to ensure we use the proper brand on each of our clients. If you suffer excessive itching or burning at the salon you’ve been loyal to, we are always glad to sit down and talk with you about the best option for you. When necessary, we perform a patch test to make sure you can tolerate the product. A patch test is a simple procedure where we dab a tiny amount of color behind your hair then wait 48 hours to see if you have any adverse reactions to the color. So far those we’ve performed this on have been able to come in and get their hair colored without discomfort.

Finally, our products are also ammonia-free, so the burning and itching you may feel while getting your hair colored at traditional salons doesn’t happen here either!

BIODYNAMIC VS ORGANIC INGREDIENTS

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

A new wave of sustainability is sweeping over the beauty industry. Biodynamics takes organic farming a step further, with its focus on unity, high processing standards, active ingredients, naturally-derived extracts, and ethical trading.

This farming method has raised the ideals associated with those of traditional and organic farming techniques. Oway, our new haircare line, embodies this ideology of farming through harvesting healthy plants that are good for our health and which increase the overall well-being and quality of life.

What Is Biodynamic Farming?
bio1Biodynamics may sound like an intensely complex concept, yet demystifying it is quite simple. The basis of it relies strongly on a farm’s intrinsic nature to sustain itself.

Biodynamic farming does not rely on the earth’s resources, but instead contributes them. There is also an understood respect and harmony between land, animals and people.
While, organic farming uses materials from outside sources, a biodynamic farm is best seen as a self-sustained system. It also creates the opportunity to give back to its surroundings, by being regenerative instead of degenerative. Biodynamic farming has brought about a hearty view on how comprehensive our quest for health and wellness should be.

Unlike organic, biodynamic farming incorporates higher standards of animal welfare, including free-range mobility, lack of antibiotics use and environments free of harsh gasses and other harmful elements.

Also, farmers of biodynamic farms do not use synthetic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers to help grow and maintain the land. In Oway’s case, their biodynamic farm (OrtOfficina) is over 50,000 miles of land that has never seen a drop of synthetic chemicals!

Instead, manure that is buried in cow horns and strengthened throughout the wintertime is used as a homeopathic fertilizer. This method of fertilizing creates high quality and pure functional active ingredients, such as the effective extracts that are infused into Oway’s color and care line. Farmers also reserve 10% of their land for biodiversity, which allows for a variety of ecology, more fertile soil and healthier results.

Farm-To-Chair Sustainability
Biodynamic farms are minimally dependent on imported materials. Any waste produced from an area of the farm is re-used as energy for other parts of the farm. Feed and fertilizer are produced from recycled organic material the system generates.

Oway’s farm is a prime example, as it has a permaculture that aims to meet its own needs, rather than seeking outside resources. The farmland also works with the rhythm of nature to achieve the best and most efficient results possible.

The benefits of using products that are produced on biodynamic farms include increased quality, better health and lower eco-impact. These benefits are attributed to the fact that biodynamic farms go beyond organic methods, which includes promoting the health, balance and effectiveness of the soil.

So, Why Choose Biodynamics?
Biodynamics truly is a step above organic. If you are after a clean and healthy approach, products with biodynamic ingredients are your best bet to achieve a refreshing look with the least amount of synthetic chemicals and preservatives. When health and wellness are your top priorities, it is easy to see the benefits of choosing biodynamic products over others. You have the power to set a precedent with the products you choose to use and the services you perform!

If you are looking for a brand that offers products with biodynamic ingredients, look no further than our new haircare line, Oway. This holistic system offers an entire line of products that adhere to the biodynamic certification guidelines.

The raw materials, formulations, production process, and packaging of Oway’s products are certified by NATRUE, an authoritative international non-profit organization that enforces high standards in order to ensure naturally-derived ingredients.
Find out for yourself just how amazing biodynamically-produced products are, and how helpful it is when it comes to achieving your goal of healthy beauty.
