Hair Conditioner: Ticket to a Molecular Makeover
Your hair’s sure to feel silkier once your stylist conditions it—learn why with Groupon’s close-up look at conditioner.
Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer—the cuticle—is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules, called cationic surfactants, to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair—the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)
The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Located inside Salon Lofts, we offer a private suite exclusively for the Gents of Sarasota to get pampered in privacy!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
There is a huge gap in the men's grooming industry. My inspiration comes from wanting to help close that gap. To break the stigma of spas only being for women. Men, there is nothing wrong with pampering yourself! And my children of course! I'm a single mom and want nothing but the best for them.
What do you love most about your job?
I love being able to not only give my a great cut, but to help them take a break from crazy schedules and relax with a cold beer, good conversation, neck massage. I get to build relationships with my clients and become apart of their lives. It's special.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I was constantly searching for someone to cut my hair who was consistent, reliable, professional, and fun. Jordin is all of those things and then some! I couldn't be happier with the experience and results that she provides every time. She's just simply that good and that cool!
