New from EJS: Share Your Hair Story!

Dean Jan 24, 2022

At Elayne James Salon and Hair Color Studio, we pride ourselves on sharing our stories and giving you the real tea! So in that realm, we have for you a curated list of testimonials for our absolute favorite hair aftercare from our Featured Stylists!

Layla - Olaplex No. 7


This one comes directly from our Feature Stylist, Layla!


Olaplex No. 7 is a highly concentrated reparative styling oil from the brand Olaplex! Formulated with their patentend Bond-Building technology, Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate, this bonding oil restores compromised hair from the inside out.

Layla loves it this product as the last step in her styling process to seal the ends of the hair. She usually pairs it with Olaplex No. 6 as a leave-in before blow-drying! In her words: "it's easy to use, a little goes a long way, and it addresses many needs froms split ends to damage from the lightening process!"


From Layla's guests:

This product has completely changed my hair for the better! My hair has never felt healthier, and my color is more vibrant than ever. I already see long-term results in my hair. Honestly, I can feel my hair getting stronger after each use.


Carly - Redken Shine Flash


Carly is sharing her secret to shine! Shine Flash.


Redken's Shine Flash is an anti-frizz spray that adds a sleek, glass-like shine to any hair type!

This is used as the last step in Carly's process as she sprays over the hair and brushes it through. She loves it for its fresh smell, lightweight feel and it's ability to tame flyways. For product pairings, she recommends Redken's Wax Blast for that extra shot of hold, or Redken's Triple Dry for finer hair!


From Carly's guests:

I have been using this for quite some time now and really like it. I have used other similar products that were gummy, heavy and did not produce the nice fresh and natural shine that this product does. And it smells nice as well. I love this as my finishing touch to my hairdo!


Megan- Redken Big Blowout


Megan's top heat-protecting aftercare!


With a nonstick jelly serum formula, Redken's Big Blowout is a heat-protecting jelly that provides a soft, bouncy finish.

Megan fell in love with the lightweight texture and versatility of Big Blowout when it was first released. It's perfect for braiding and glides over the hair effortlessly! She would pair it with Pureology's Hydrate shampoo and conditioner for a fresh, nourished feel.


From Megan's guests:

I have very fine hair and this helped give it a nice boost. I enjoyed that it gave the hold/volume I wanted without it feeling sticky or weird!


This is a growing list, so stay tuned for more stories from Feature Stylists and their guests!
