As a chemist and the father of a frizzy-haired teen, I’ve been on a long journey to understand the science of why hair gets frizzy.

As part of my research, I’ve asked many professional hair stylists how they help clients combat frizz. I quickly learned that one of the biggest frizz culprits might be in your bathroom: your trusty hair dryer.

Case Study: Improve Managability

August 01, 2015

Issue: This client went “natural” with her hair care 3 years prior. While her hair is in great condition, she wanted improved manageability and a larger, softer curl.

Treatment: Client used Q-Shampoo and Q-Conditioner once. Then twisted, rolled, and dried hair overnight.

Results: After a single use of Q-Shampoo and Q-Conditioner, the client’s hair was dramatically softer and the richness of the black color improved due to increased shine. She reports that the amount of work in maintaining the “natural” look is greatly reduced.

Case Study: Resistant Hair

Case Study: Resistant Hair

August 01, 2015

Issue: This 17-year old client has always suffered with unruly hair that would not lay down and would defy gravity. She was wearing it in a protective braid prior to the treatment because it was so prone to breakage.

Treatment: Client used the Penetrate/Encapsulate Treatment by Lubricity. Two 15-minute steps.

Results: After the Penetrate/Encapsulate Treatment, the client’s hair was incredibly soft and supple. It laid down and was easily managed with minimal breakage after being combed out. The change in color is dramatic. While the color of her hair did not actually change, the increase in shine allowed the true color to shine through. This treatment changed the way she was able to wear her hair and significantly reduced the work each day to style her hair.

This client is due to have her roots done but as you can see the longer hair has been quite damaged from years of coloring. She used the 2 step Penetrate / Encapsulate Treatment (15 minutes per step) and look at the result. The after photo is just blow-dried hair, no product, no round brush; just her fingers as she dried her hair. The hair is so soft now and the increase in shine is amazing.
