Eyebrow Microblading

If you are looking into getting your eyebrows microbladed , there are a few thing you should know first, Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo that uses a pen style tool with a head constructed of a row of very fine needles so the process is more of a scratching sensation as apposed to a cutting. This process also differs from traditional tattooing because it is done using a natural pigment instead of an ink. When done correctly, the process should be ver superficial, cause little to know bleeding and not cause scaring. 

In most cases microblading lasts one to two years when taken proper care of. In some cases it can last as long as three years or as little as eight months. It is not recommended that people with large poors, very oily skin, red dye #7 allergies, iron deficiencies or people that are prone to keyloyding get the microblading procedure done. Pigments contain red dye #7 and iron oxide. If you have an iron deficiency your body will likely absorb the pigment faster causing it to fade out and need to be re-done more frequently.  

Proper care includes what I call the 357 rule. 3 days with out sweating. Thats right ladies NO working out and 3 days of sleeping with bandaids covering the ends or tails of the micro bladed brows. The ends are the first thing to fade out and rubbing on your pillow at night while you sleep can cause them to fade out right away. keep the cotton part of the bandaid touching the brow (not the sticky part). % days of keeping it covered with either aquaphor, grapes oil or another moisturizer (I like aquaphor). Most important is to keep it dry for 7 days. Water will take off the scabs thus taking off the pigment within the scabs.

Product Information. Tutorials and Purchasing options.

As a 16 year stylist I've had the opportunity to use and try out many different products, some of which I love! This blog will list all of my favorite product lines as well as the products within those lines that I use on a regular basis. I have taken the time to research the best hair products as well as pricing. Products may be ordered via our online store. If you have any further questions you can email me, call the salon or book an appointment for an in person tutorial.

One of my personal favorite product lines is an all organic aromatherapy line made right her in the USA out of Washington. All of the products are Sulfate free as well as sodium chloride free. If You have used sulfate free shampoos in the past then you know that they typically do not lather, often resulting in oily or greasy hair. Loma Organics is the only sulfate free product line that I have found that does lather. It will leave your hair feeling moisturized and healthy without having an greasy texture. These products are great for travel as they double as body wash and lotion as well as shampoo and conditioner. 

I have been doing Keratin Straightening treatment for the past 8 years and every one of my keratin clients uses Loma Organics as their primary shampoo and conditioner. All of the Loma products are sulfate and sodium chloride free and safe to use on chemically treated hair. For my treatments I use the Global Keratin line. This is also a great line to use with keratin treatments. I specifically like the leave in conditioners as well as the serum.

For those of you ladies with curly hair I recommend The Deva Care line. I specifically love their shampoos and conditioners as well as the leave in curl cream. This will leave the hair with a soft texture, eliminating  the "crunchy" texture that most curl enhancers leave. 

Women with fine hair that don't want it weighed down with product leaving the hair heavy and with an oily texture, I really like Evo's Mister Fantastic. This comes in a spray and i typically spray it in my hand then gently apply to the ends of the hair. The Evo Root Canal is a great combo product with this. You can spray it on the roots prior to styling to give a little extra volume. 

For leave hair moisturizers I like It A 10 with Keratin the best. Be careful not to spray this on your roots as it will cause hair build up and greasy scalp. Again Global keratin is also great for leaving in the hair.

If your concern is frizz then I recommend Loma Nourishing Oil as it has a light texture and is clear in color so it wont cause a yellow tint in your hair like some other brands may.

Men will love the Evo men's as well at the Loma men's line. If your looking for a firm hold with a product that is easily applicable, I recommend Evo Casual Act or Loma Forming Paste. I use these styling product more than any other on my male clients.
