Static: It doesn’t come from your favorite sweater September 16, 2009

The fall season, means great fall fashions. Unfortunately, most of those fashions; cardigans, sweaters and long sleeved shirts, aren’t compatible with battling static. Did you know that static doesn’t actually come from your favorite sweater? Al Melchiorre, owner of de’-al salon in Wichita, Kan. and co-creator of the Semplifi Hair System is here to tell you why!

Q: Why is it that I battle with static, especially in the fall and winter months?

Al: The elements know when to attack and around winter you hair is under attack because of the constant battle between cold weather and heating systems. When you are outside you are exposed to cool air that has some moisture in it, when you walk inside your heated home then all the moisture is sucked out of the air. Therefore, your hair reacts with static.

Another reason this happens is from the common battle between product and environment. Products build on top of your hair and the environment is still sneaking into the cuticle. Therefore you need a product that will penetrate the cuticle. Of course I mean the  Semplifi Hair System.

How to use: Shampoo like normal. Then with the Daily Plus Conditioner, add a couple pumps of Volume Plus and lather together. That will give your hair volume and moisture but no static. After showering apply the Style Plus spray just to help maintain frizz.

These products working together in tandem will penetrate the cuticle, fill it and block any other elements from penetrating. In return you can go from cold to hot environments as often as you please! Also, quit blaming your sweater! It’s the environment! You can wear your clothing with out fear of what it will do to your hair style that day.

Flat iron woes September 7, 2009

Al Melchiorre, owner of de’-al salon in Wichita, KS and co-creator of Semplifi Hair Systems, is here to answer your hair questions!

Q: How come I use the flat iron and it seems like my hair is smoking?

Al: Just like if anything smokes, it’s burning! Now I’m not going to tell you to stop using your flat iron, but the reason why it burns your hair is because of the products that are on your hair. Even if you just washed your hair with shampoo and condioner, you are putting heat to the product build up you have already created.

To safely use your flat iron with out burning your hair you need to use a product that won’t build up on your hair shaft.

My suggestion Semplifi Hair System. Shampoo and Condition as normal. Use the Style Plus spray while blow drying or air drying your hair in order to protect from heat and the elements. Then before flat ironing, put a couple of pumps of moisture plus in your hands and run your fingers through your hair. Brush your hair out and then begin flat ironing. After doing so, you will notice there wasn’t any smoke and your hair is soft and shiny afterward!

How does this work? Easy, Semplifi doesn’t create product build up because it can’t. It’s not designed to sit on the hair follicle, it is meant to penetrate the cuticle and repair from the inside out while protecting the hair from harsh elements and of course, heat!

Ethnic hair deserves to be soft and shiny too! September 2, 2009

Al Melchiorre, owner of de’-al salon in Wichita, Kan. and co-creator of Semplifi Hair Systems is back to answer your hair questions!

Q: I have Ethnic hair, why is my hair not as soft as other hair types?

Al: Ethnic hair has a harder time of retaining moisture because of the oils that build up from many of the products that are offered for that hair type. Many people who have ethnic hair need to buy certain products to maintain their hair, unfortunately those products are all topical and cause product build up that can almost seem greasy. While most of the products do this, there is a way to achieve soft and silky hair that is inexpensive, easy and completely possible.

Semplifi Hair Care System penetrates the cuticle, as we have said many times before. Therefore it can NOT cause product build up. It works on any hair type, which means even those with ethnic hair can use it. The way that those with ethnic hair use Semplifi is different than others.

New Letterbox and Elementsbottles

How to use: Use the Daily Renew Shampoo and instead of the Daily Plus Conditioner, use a few pumps of the volumizer and a few pumps of the moisturizer. That will add the perfect amount of natural lift, shine and moisture to the cuticle. Then throughout the day, use the Moisture Plus when styling or if you feel like your hair needs extra shine and moisture.

Semplifi has a great effect on ethnic hair, like no other product can. It is guaranteed to work and keep your hair soft and shiny as long as you use it.

You deserve to have great hair, no matter what hair type you have. You weren’t born with unhealthy hair so why should it stay that way? If you have any hair topics that you’d like to see covered send us a comment or e-mail us at semplifiurlife@yahoo.com

Calling all Brunettes! Fall looks are in! September 1, 2009

Dean Melchiorre, owner of de’-al salon in New York and co-creator of Semplifi Hair Systems gave us advice on what hair colors and cuts are in for this season. From that advice we went out and found girls willing to get in style for a new fall look!

Sara Lopez is a stylist at de’-al salon in Wichita and with the help of her fellow stylists, they achieved a great fall look for brunettes.

DSC02849Here you can see that her natural color is very dark, per Dean’s advice she needed to add a warmer color to it while keeping it natural. So she had a milk chocolate tone added to cover her previous blonde highlights. This milk chocolate color working with her naturally dark brown hair and mixed quite well in order to brighten her face.

You may have seen this look on certain celebs, like Fergie!

 How to keep that color looking great

To create the shine and volume to her hair, she used the Semplifi Hair System.

First she used the Daily Renew Shampoo then the Daily Plus Conditioner mixed in with a few pumps of Moisture Plus. This helped to lock in moisture and will help keep the color in the hair so it won’t fade.

Then a blow out was performed on Sara’s hair and with a round brush working the root, you can see she got a soft volumized look. By spraying the Semplifi Style Plus Spray into her palms, she then worked her fingers through her hair in order to add more shine, volume and contain frizz.

Since the Semplifi Hair System fills the cuticle of the hair, we can expect that Sara’s hair will still have that great color a month from now, because with Semplifi the color can’t fade- that is a guarantee.

Fall looks start with the cut, end with the color August 31, 2009

Soon the sidewalks will be covered in leaves and the air will be brisk, which means one thing- time to get a new fall hairstyle. So the question is- what colors and cuts are trend-right for the fall season?

Not to worry! Dean Melchiorre, owner of de’-al salon in New York and co-creator of Semplifi Hair Care System, offers his expertise and insight on the best looks in hair and fashion for right now and into autumn.

Warm reds and strawberry blondes will be the envy of everyone, and summer’s bright blondes can be toned down to evoke a pearl or champagne glow. Warm hair color paired with soft neutral makeup will deliver the classy look you’re seeking.

Short cuts and edgy, pieced looks are softening up and becoming more ladylike.
With the cut it’s very simple: think – soft and pretty- from the bangs to the ends; longer layers and loose waves or loopy curls. The bangs can be straight and defined or they can blend into longer layers around the face. The right bangs are very important to the overall look.

Keep yourself in the loop …we will be posting pictures of our fall styles, with the advice of Dean!

Blonde Highlights lookin a little brassy? August 24, 2009

Al Melchiorre is a hair expert; owner of de’-al salon in Wichita, KS and co-creator of Semplifi Hair Systems, with his brother Dean. He is here to answer any and all hair questions you may have! If you have a question make sure to comment or send us an e-mail at semplifiurlife@yahoo.com or becoming our fan on Facebook!

Q: Why do my blonde highlights either fade or turn brassy?

Al: Well to answer that question let’s first explain how you get those blonde highlights. First of all, to recieve those blonde tints the stylist is using a form of bleach. The bleach opens up the cuticle of the hair in order to turn the entire follicle blonde. The bad thing is, it doesn’t close the cuticle after it’s finished.

Once your hair is highlighted you are then directed to wash your hair, which can begin the fading process, offered some products that will continue that fading process then you go home where you are exposed to sunlight, hard minerals in your water and other elements. All of these things combined or alone will begin the oxidation and fading of your high lights.

Semplifi fills the cuticle protecting the color from outside elements such as minerals in water and the sun. By using Semplifi your blonde highlights will look great a month from the day you had them done. All you'll need to do is touch up those roots!

Hard minerals in your water or even chlorine will jump inside that open cuticle and begin to turn your hair that brassy color that you didn’t want to achieve. How do you fix it? Use Semplifi.

Semplifi Hair System is guaranteed, yes guaranteed, to keep your blonde high lights blonde. Semplifi goes into the cuticle, puffs it up and shuts the cuticle so other elements can’t penetrate.
