Do you have fine, limp hair that needs some VAVOOM?! You are not alone! I personally battle this myself!! The great thing about having fine hair, is that it is easy to manipulate if you know which products to use! If you fall into this category and your stylist hasn't told you about a root pump, they have just done a disservice to you!! You NEED something to levitate your blah hair! And so I give you Pureology Pure Volume Instant Levitation Mist. Pure Volume delivers long-lasting volume by addressing the specific challenges of fine, colour-treated hair.

Let me give you 5 amazing reasons why this product will be your new BFF.


  • Removes oil buildup at the roots and other impurities that can weigh hair down
  • Gently cleanses while providing maximum respect for fine, weakened hair fibers
  • Lifts the roots and thickens each strand
  • Locks in conditioning agents for longer lasting softness
  • Provides targeted care and strength to weightlessly restore hair fibers
  • Evens out the hair surface to reduce tangling and breakage
  • Delivers a refreshing sensation
  • Pureology’s exclusive colour-protecting technology
  • Helps provide optimum vibrancy and colour retention
  • *With use of Pure Volume Shampoo and Instant Levitation Mist


Spray on damp hair at the roots. Air-dry or blow-dry for extra volume. For added volume, blow-dry the opposite way gravity wants it to lay (for example, throw your head upside down or use a round-brush)
Hopefully this helps you in your day to day styling! Now I don't ever want to hear "I can never make it look like my stylist does!" Because you can! you just need to be educated on what products to use!
and lucky you! Due to Valentines Day approaching, all our products that are pink and purple are on SALE!!

Product Rundown. Redken Color Extend Magnetics

Are you sick of leaving the salon with that perfect shade of chocolate mocha brown, only to have a drab, dull color in a few weeks?! Well, we would like to introduce you to the Color Extend Magnetics system! Believe me when I tell you to go buy this RIGHT NOW! You will thank us a million times over!!

Color Extend Magnetics Sulfate-Free Hair Color Shampoo

First, let me ask you this... Do you understand what “Sulfate-Free” means? Sulfate is the chemical in shampoo’s that give you those cute little bubbles. Most people think that the more bubbles your shampoo produces, means the cleaner your hair is becoming. That is false. While it is okay to have some sulfate in certain circumstances (for example, those people that have not had the chance to become addicted to coloring their hair, or people that just use bleach), color addicted clients will be better off without it! Sulfate can be harsh on color treated hair and if we can avoid that, we get maximum vibrancy out of our colors for longer periods of time. And who doesn’t want that?!

So to sum it up, this sulfate-free hair color protecting shampoo is a lightweight, gentle, conditioning & cleansing shampoo that uses Redken's Interlock Protein Network technology (a system enabling protein to penetrate the hair shaft more than ever before) and amino-ions to leave your color treated hair 3x more fortified (feeling like virgin hair).

Color Extend Magnetics Conditioner

This conditioner is powered by supercharged amino-ions. What does that mean?! Amino-ions are ions that are attracted to the hair fibers, and lock into place around your hair shaft to seal in your color. They polymerize to create a hydrophobic barrier, which means that it fights off dirt and grime that dulls your color. And last, but not least, it seals your strands for maximum vibrancy which produces an alluring shine .

Color Extend Magnetics Deep Attraction Mask
And just in case you need some dessert to top off this delicious 3 course meal, you can add the mask for extra protection. This is infused with Zinc Gluconate, which is known for its color retention properties, and attracts to the color molecules trapping them into the hair fiber to help preserve color richness.
