The Oscars are over for this year, but have you seen all of those gorgeous celebrity hairstyles? I cannot get them out of my mind. Sometimes I wonder how I can get my hair to look as fabulous, shiny, full, lustrous and sexy like the celebs I see on the big screen or in magazines. What IS their secret?
That was before I learned about Pai-Shau ’s Biphasic Infusion. It's every Hollywood Hairstylist’s secret weapon. In a quick shake of the bottle and spritz to the locks, hair is instantly Oscar-ready - with a silky smooth shine.
Biphasic Infusion is a potent rejuvenating concentrate containing the highest content of Signature Tea Complex . Biphasic Infusion provides extreme shine and healthier looking hair from the very first use. An advanced binary technology drives the Signature Tea Complex deep inside the cuticle to nourish the hair’s structure, attracting moisture and locking it inside. Fortified with antioxidants and amino acids, it surrounds hair with a sheer veil of shielding properties known to provide thermal and environmental protection. And like all Pai-Shau products, it is Cruelty Free - PBA Free - Gluten Free.
Pai-Shau is the first tea-infused hair care products for every texture, every style, everyone. I was sent samples of Pai-Shau ’s amazing products to review. I received their Biphasic Infusion and their Style Souffle.
After washing and conditioning my hair as normal, I towel dry it and then add a few pumps of Biphasic Infusion throughout my hair. (I let it air dry) and after it is almost dry, I add the Style Souffle throughout my hair, and twist it up into a loose bun. When my hair is 100% dry, I remove the bun and finger style my hair. (See my hair in my photo below.) My hair has never looked this healthy.
Now that I have learned the Hollywood hair secret, MY hair looks just as amazing as any of those celebs. I never thought it would be this easy to have such healthy, beautiful hair. There are no split ends, there is no frizz, and there is none of the usual breakage. My hair feels like silk and I swear my hair is growing much faster than normal, too. And did I mention it smells good, too?
Look for fabulous Biphasic Infusion available at fine salons nationally and pai-shau.com

Philip B. Botanical products have been A list hair care treatments for years, turning the driest of locks into luscious, healthy heads of hair. Although Philip B. products are well known for what they can achieve for the hair and scalp, we’ve dug a little deeper into what these formulas can do beyond what they promise on their labels! It’s time to rethink the way you spray, lather and dab.
MEET THE MULTITASKERS:
Peppermint & Avocado Volumizing & Clarifying Shampoo ($28): It’s known for leaving scalps tingly clean. But high levels of naturally antiseptic peppermint oil make it a genius makeup-brush cleaner.
I absolutely love this shampoo! It makes my hair feel so very deep-down clean. I love the minty tingle on my scalp. It definitely strips away all build-up, yet does not remove the natural oils of my hair.
I am completely smitten with this dry shampoo. It is so unbelievably amazing! When my hair needs a quick pick-me-up, or looks oily and flat, I spray this product into my dry hair. First of all, it doesn't make my hair look white like some dry shampoos. Secondly, it has a wonderful cooling feeling! It gives my hair beautiful texture without the residue that other texturizing products give me. My hair is left looking très chic and voluminous! This is the best dry shampoo I have ever used.

I absolutely love TIGI hair care products. I received samples from TIGI's Bed Head line. This line of products is called Elasticate. Elasticate products were designed to strengthen weak and damaged hair. Made with protein and elastin, it strengthens your hair and prevents breakage. Elasticate shampoo and conditioner transforms brittle, dry hair into soft, beautiful and manageable hair.

Proper labeling is an important aspect of a cosmetic or personal care product. Labeling is used to help inform consumers of a product's intended use and any related warnings, its ingredients and net quantity of contents, and its place of manufacture or distribution. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulate cosmetic labeling under the authority of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA). These laws and their related regulations are intended to protect consumers from health hazards and deceptive practices and to help consumers make informed decisions about the personal care products they purchase. Still, names can be confusing such as “salon formulated” and it can be difficult for consumers to understand why they really mean. We asked Piero Pirri, famed hairstylist and owner of Pirri Hair Group in Ct and the founder of the hair care line Pirri Elements to help decode hair product jargon.
Natural isn’t always better. “Consumers should not necessarily assume that an ‘organic’ or ‘natural’ ingredient or product would possess greater inherent safety than another chemically identical version of the same ingredient,” “In fact, ‘natural’ ingredients may be harder to preserve against microbial contamination and growth than synthetic raw materials” says Piero. The best conditioners on the market contain silicone, which leaves your hair smooth and silky but is completely unnatural.
Hypoallergenic: Even if you have sensitive skin, products labeled “hypoallergenic” are a waste of money. “‘Hypoallergenic’ is little more than a nonsense word,” warns Piero. “Given that there are no regulations governing this supposed category that was made up by the cosmetics industry, there are plenty of products labeled ‘hypoallergenic’ that contain problematic ingredients and that could indeed trigger allergic reactions. The word ‘hypoallergenic’ gives you no better understanding of what you are or aren’t putting on your skin.”
Studies: The back of the bottle of shampoo promises “up to 70% more volume” and that it’s “proven to perform” based on “a consumer test.” “There are lots of ways to use pseudoscience to create proof for a claim that, in reality, has very little to do with science and everything to do with marketing,” explains Piero.
It is meant to infer that he manufacturer has conducted some testing of the product in a clinical setting, like a lab. It doesn't mean that anything significant has been "proven."
Fragrance-free: It means that the product has no noticeable smell and usually contains no added artificial or chemical fragrances. Piero explains that, “It doesn't mean it's totally free of added substances, like botanical extracts, that mask the smell of the basic ingredients.”
Dermatologist-Tested: This means thata dermatologist tested the product.
It does not mean that it's approved and endorsed by a dermatologist. "The implication is that the dermatologist liked it, but you don't know that," says Piero.
Restructuring: Found on hair-care labels, this word implies the product will restore hair to its natural structure -- before it was damaged with styling and chemical treatments.
Piero cautions that, “It does not mean that you can permanently restructure hair. This is a temporary fix that will leave hair looking and feeling healthier.”
Many drug store brands claim that they are just as good as the salon brands. The simple truth is that salon products and drug store brands can have the same ingredients. However, the amounts of those ingredients per bottle are what you really need to know. Most salon quality hair care products have much more of the proteins and vitamins that your hair needs to stay healthy. The drug store brands may have these ingredients, but they have them in much lower quantities.
You may find brands that boast extra ingredients like honey, aloe, or natural herbs. Piero says that, “For the most part, these are just for show. While some of these may have benefits for your hair the truth is there simply are not enough of those ingredients in the product to have any effect.”
Piero cautions that, “Any product claiming it can heal your hair is not worth any price. Hair is dead and cannot be fixed with anything but a good set of styling scissors. If you are considering salon products but you are not sure about paying the extra money, try samples and see for yourself if you notice any improvement.”
