Activance – Revives Thinning, Damaged and Lifeless Hair

The regenerative power of Rhodanide

Activance with Rhodanide

Activance with Rhodanide is the proven, scientific solution to thinning hair for both men and women.
When you use ACTIVANCE, your hair not only looks and feels better, you actually grow thicker, stronger, healthier hair.

Why is Activance different?

Rhondanide (pronounced Ro-dan-ide) is a vitamin-like nutrient and natural regenerative factor required by hair to improve growth and quality. Our premium-quality ACTIVANCE products contain a stabilised form of Rhodanide that provides a quick and easy way to boost your Rhodanide levels and deliver visible results immediately.

Why Activance Is Better for Your Hair?

Your hairs natural Rhodanide levels are constantly depleted by day-to-day washing, styling and chemical treatments, as well as factors such as poor diet, stress, illness, ageing and harsh environmental conditions like UV rays. This can leave your hair looking dull, lifeless and damaged, and eventually lead to premature hair loss.
ACTIVANCE works by instantly boosting the Rhodanide levels in your hair. Scientific studies prove that an increase in Rhodanide levels regenerates your hair follicles and revives thinning and lifeless hair. It also lengthens your hairs growth cycle and promotes an anti-ageing effect by combating free radicals and other harmful molecules. This gives you thicker, stronger, shinier and easier-to-manage hair.

Who should use Activance?

An essential tool in the fight against the onset and progression of hair loss, ACTIVANCE is particularly suited to people with thinning hair. However, the many powerful attributes of Rhodanide also make it perfect for anyone who wants to boost their hair growth or simply improve the condition and quality of their hair, especially chemically treated, coloured, regularly styled, frizzy, or damaged.
Best of all, ACTIVANCE can be used by the entire family, from mum (even pregnant or breast feeding) to dad, and children of all ages.

Evolution Smoothing Treatment

The Next Generation of Hair Smoothing Treatment has Arrived
Evolution Pro treatment is an innovation in hair restructuring and smoothing science.
Evolution Pro lasts up to four months, and is suitable for the reduction of frizz and curl on all hair types notwithstanding condition, previous straightening, chemical reforming or colour services.
Usually, smoothing products are creamy; instead Evolution Pro by Jean Paul Mynè is a clear and transparent liquid with a pronounced thixotropic effect (a gel that converts to a liquid with manipulation).
It is a milestone within the art of restructuring and modifying capillary fibres. Evolution Pro Step 2 Treatment does not contain silicones, parabens, paraffi n petroleum sources, sulfur or other substances aggressive to the hair such as soda (alkali), guanidines or similar.
This product does not interact with disulfide bonds, which is typical of treatments with alkaline pH. Evolution Pro does not contain keratin. Instead, it acts on the hair using carbohydrates and heat to form new stable chemical bonds between the amino acids of capillary fibres. The extracts of cereals (rice, barley, oats, millet, wheat) rich in protein and vitamins with emollient properties, in combination with patented active ingredients, help to restructure the hair and make it soft and easy to comb.
Thanks to the action of these substances on the cuticular hair layers, new bonds between the amino acids of keratin capillaries fibres are established. The result is hair which is stronger and smoother, protected from aging, harmful environmental effects and daily stress.

Tangle Teezer

A Tangle Teezer hair brush will break the cycle of broken hair and give tangled hair the brush off. A revolution in detangling hair, it has the ability to flex and not pull upon contact with tangles, gently and effortlessly delivering smooth and shiny hair in an instant.
Upon picking up Tangle Teezer you will notice the teeth aren’t like that of an ordinary brush which is where the hair genius comes in. The unique configuration of specifically designed teeth flex just the right amount to detangle and help smooth the hair’s cuticle which in turn protects the inner cortex from damage.
Using the Tangle Teezer will ensure your hair will appear more lustrous by minimising cuticle damage which in turn will help colour last and reduce the risk of fading. The hair shaft is also better prepared for the onslaught of damaging heat from styling tools. That’s why we like to call it first aid for hair.

How do I get the haircut I want?

Communication is the key!

  • Bring a photo- Bringing a picture along of the style you are after is still the most effective way to show a stylist or colourist what you are thinking – especially when it comes to colour. one persons ‘honey blonde’ is another person’s toast.
  • Fess up – Be honest with your stylist with what your hair texture is like. come to the appointment after letting your hair air-dry so they can see it in your natural state. Also let them know what home maintenance your prepared to do to achieve your look.
  • Bare All – explain what your personal style is. what you wear, where you work and how much effort your willing to put into your hair.
  • Show, don’t tell – Have you ever seen a ruler in a salon? Although 2 inches is specific, it is much easier to show your stylist where you want your hair to sit.
  • set Limits – never say “do whatever you want” and don’t be shy about speaking up during the process if you are feeling uncomfortable. set limits, If you are unsure of what you want, let them know what you don’t want and work around that.

How can I find a stylist for my curly hair?

Curly Hair is a tricky one for some hairstylists. we personally love cutting curly hair as each cut is totally individual and has its own personality.the key to it is to allow the curl to move, work with it and create need layers internally without going too short. round shaped haircuts are better for curly hair than any’re stylist should understand this and use cutting techniques such as slicing and brick cutting to create texture and movement. regarding the frizz, use smoothing balms and even finishing serums and pomades are great because they pump moisture and shine into the hair.

How can I prevent “Split Ends”?

To help prevent split ends never dry your hair by rubbing it with a towel, instead use a towel like a turban.
