Enter Pumpkin Skin Refinement Series available at Indulge Salon York Pa.

As my years are creeping up on me at this special age over 50, the skin has changed dramatically. It used to stay up in place. Now it has drooped around the lips and jaw. I’m not super excited by that development but know that I’ve always been fascinated by skin care early in my teens. You would never catch me without a moisturizer and a scrub. Those two are my staples to beautiful sin.

Signs of skin needing resuscitated:pumpkin

  1. smokers skin drawn around the mouth
  2. yellow tinge to the skin
  3. sagging skin
  4. pale, thin skinned
  5. crepe skin
  6. acne skin
  7. thickened skin

In order for us to resuscitate the skin, we may have to force the skin to respond to a specific customized  chemical peel allowing the skin to be able to accept vitamins at a deeper more profound level.

Kimberly, Owner of Indulge Salon

Fine thinning hair to thicker, fuller and longer hair 1 year later

April 6, 2017, my son passed away leaving me to find more myself. The loss was so sad that I felt like I didn’t want to drag myself out of bed. I used to look at myself in the mirror talking to that “self” saying, “you need to get up, you need to move forward today and look your best.” I knew  that I had never had great hair  at any point in my life. I normally would pull it back into a pony tail that made it look thicker. I did have it cut every 6 months because the ends were straggly.

During a year that I could remember, my hair was being cut and the stylist that was cutting my hair said, “Kimberly, you don’t have any hair in the middle of the back of your head.” Of course I was stunned or couldn’t imagine my hair being that short. Unfortunately, it was true, my hair had broken off from the constant strain of being pony tailed at the same spot for 20 years. Needless to say, I cut it off shorter to make it look better. I still hadn’t learned my lesson after all of those years.

2017 broken off fine thin hair

My emotions were all over the place between happy and sad or just bursting into tears from the loss I was feeling. I couldn’t think straight, wasn’t eating right and certainly hadn’t been getting enough sleep over the years but the previous two years before my son’s passing wasn’t the epitome of healthy eating. My hair was not that important to me at that time.

After he passed in April, the following months were a struggle to function. My body was tired and sleepy. I had always taken vitamins for my fine thin hair but knew that I needed to change my hair behaviors. Since being in the beauty industry, the opportunities to have hair extensions installed to give my hair length and fullness immediately but didn’t want to stress my hair at the scalp since it was just starting to grow back but still had hair loss and didn’t think it was strong enough to hold the attachment at the scalp and the weight of the hair. I nixed that idea although it is good for others that option didn’t seem feasible to me at the time.

One day I was working in the salon when this sales representative came in offering me samples of a hair growing shampoo. I agreed to try the treatment with lots of skepticism about “another” product that is supposed to grow hair. I knew that I always recommended Biotin 1 – 3x per day but that was a slow solution and was always on the look out for new products to help my clients. Being used to always doing things for others, this was my norm vs how do I take care of myself. That was foreign thinking for me just to think about my own fine thin hair.

After using the treatment and conditioner for 1 month, I saw a huge difference. My hair wasn’t falling out any longer, it felt thicker and I started to get compliments on how shiny my hair was in the light. I never received compliments like I was receiving multiple times per week. The Boost products were part of the routine to give my hair volume and thickness. I had used these products for over a year and saw my hair turn into hair that I didn’t know I had.

As you can see from the before and after photos above, the photo that shows my hair being held out has literally grown 12″ looking thicker and fuller while the ends of the hair are still thin from a year ago. I stopped pony tailing my hair as much. I didn’t put it in a pony tail at night which causes stress on the hair from being in the same spot. I stopped combing my hair from the scalp out but instead combed it with a large tooth comb from the ends up. If you go to FB: Indulge Salon, you will see a few of my hair videos that show how to comb your hair properly.

  •  hair extensions that either are tape in or micro linked read more here
  • haircut designed for fine thin hair
  • use a flat iron correctly
  • light body perm that gives volume without the frizz
  • started more green foods such as spinach, kale, green beans, sweet potatoes, red beets
  • getting sleep
  • watching funny and motivating videos

Loving my hair now

As a result of taking care of my hair in a good way inside and out, my hair is beautiful and thicker than I’ve ever imagined. My fine thin hair is thicker, fuller and longer to the point that it’s heavy when I wash it in the shower. My habits have paid off for me. I didn’t realize the damage that I had been doing for so many YEARS that I think about the result of pony tailing to much or not caring for me the way that I could have. I hope you have learned some things that will help you take best care of your hair the way I did. I still use my hair growing shampoo available at Indulge Salon, York, Pa or Indulge Salon Greensboro, GA. We have the treatments, the conditioners that are for either over 40 years old or under 40 for split ends and the styling products that help thicken your hair.

Our team will help you set up the regimen that you need to care for your hair in the right way. We will provide you an assessment of your texture, porosity and give you a great haircut that will compliment your face shape and lifestyle. We will evaluate whether you need to have hair extensions, hair color or highlights that are good for your look.

New trends for gray hair 2018!

Violet Gray

AFTER adding violet gray

Meet Sandy, a cool grandmother that started with beautiful hair that looked like white sun cotton. She knew that she wanted a change for her gray hair. How could you not when you see the magazines showing multidimensional grays. Turning gray early in her years left her wondering how would she  look with a low light of darker gray or a silver color added? She sought Indulge Salon, York, Pa for advice.

To see more pictures of the in between process click here 

Many women have  come to Indulge Salon, York, Pa in search of wanting their hair to be totally bleached out then toned gray only to find out how high maintenance the color ended up being until their own gray grew out. The growing out process can take many months of growth to finally end up with white gray hair or blended gray hair. In many cases of growing out, the natural hair and the previously colored hair doesn’t look that attractive and would need to be managed with a deposit only color on the ends to blend hair.

As a salon stylist, we are always faced with the concerns of keeping the integrity of highlighted hair, darker hair that has to be lightened light enough to choose the right tone for the right result for the client’s skin tone.

In many cases gray hair or lightened hair for that matter richly depends on the how light we can make the hair within one sitting. More often than not, we have to set up many appointments that are lengthy in time in order to achieve a safe lightening environment in order to tone to the gray hair wanted.

We have many choices to choose from when it comes from color manufacturers that deposit only that lasts only for a few days or as often as the hair is washed because it will wash out still leaving the hair feeling soft and healthy. Once the gray hair is applied to the hair whether it’s permanent or demi permanent the hair will be changed on a molecular level. If someone doesn’t like the gray hair after it’s been done, this removal is another conversation.

Other choices are from permanent color that will stay in the hair longer however; the color will or could fade over a period of 4 weeks similarly to a fabric that is worn regularly. The hair has many spaces in it that could alter the outcome of the result. For this reason, our professional stylists have to make decisions based on these assessments.

My best advisement is to schedule a consultation to review the photos that you are interested in having of the gray hair. You might need a darker base at the scalp that requires a longer process time plus the time it may take to lighten the ends of the hair. Just know that if your hair isn’t able to lift enough to apply the gray color of interest, you will have to come back for another appointment to resume the lightening again. The important factor is to keep the hair healthy.

The appointment

We arranged for her to have a consultation about giving her an alternative color that will gradually wash out so that if she didn’t want the new gray color permanently then she could allow the color to fade away. As an authority on the 50,000 shades of gray in our salons, we pride ourselves on the options for all gray hair. Some of the options that we have to discuss before choosing the colors are:

  1. texture of the hair. If the hair is coarse we have to choose a color that will moisturize the hair. If the hair is fine gray hair, we have to plump up the hair with the right gray  color. If we use a color that is to heavy as a  cream, it could weigh it down causing a gray that looks a bit darker than what you had expected because it saturates the hair.
  2. Porosity is the ability of the hair to absorb moisture. If the color absorbs to much color, the hair may look darker than what you want.
  3. Style – what type of hairstyle/haircut do you want to compliment your gray hair. We have to evaluate where we are going to accentuate the eyes, the cheekbones, the jawline.
  4. Positioning of the gray hair to enhance a fringe, a bang, the edges, the overall look
  5. keep the existing hair color or change it totally

To answer the questions for Sandy’s hair, we chose to do a multi toned gray hair that had hues of violet, darker grays around the perimeter and a few on the top.

Prepping from white to gray hair

Starting off with  white gray hair as the foundation to consider adding  violet gray with multi dimensional low lights of dark gray will give the illusion of natural gray hair 10 years her youth.

We need to make sure the low lights of gray hair will be sitting in the right place within her hair to enhance her eyes, to enhance her facial structure.

The texture of her hair is taken into consideration based on the ability of the hair to absorb moisture either giving a shiny lighter look or a opaque look. Her hair is coarser which will take in the base pigment that could go too dark. We didn’t want the gray hair to go to dark because our goal is to be more natural looking without having the re-growth of potential roots causing you to come back every 4 weeks. She wasn’t interested in this type of gray hair color maintenance.

Gray hair process


Once we decided on the color tones that we were using, we talked again about the consequences if she doesn’t want it anymore. We proceeded by foiling the hairs that were choses to be darker gray and violet gray. The rest of the hair was toned with a semi permanent shine that had some violet to it that gave an overall appearance of gray youth.

The color processed for 20 – 30 minutes to allow the pigment to work properly. After we had finished, we had used a color post that closes the outside layers of the hair from an alkalinity to an acidic level that is closest to our natural level. Once she had finished processing totally, we combed it out to review the amount of dimensional pigment that she had as a result. See more of the processes  on FB here.

The gray haircut

Once the cut strategy was set in place prior to the color service of graying her hair. It is important to note that the colors will either enhance the haircut or distract from it. Our goal is to always give the best balance. We cut a stunning one length bob that framed her face with a slight layer giving her swing and movement when she moves her hair.

A haircut that is designed with the gray hair minded client would give a youthful appearance to a mature woman. A gray colored tone on a younger person gives a sexy edgy look. Keeping a good shape to a haircut is essential every 4 – 5 weeks.

After care

This essential part of the service is very important to keep the color fresh over the weeks ahead. We have after care conditioner that is gluten free, good for the hair that is designed to replenish the gray pigment that gradually washes out of the hair. If the hair isn’t replenished, the gray hair will revert back to the lightened state with a yellowish tinge or a left over pigment that may or may not be desirable. A color will have to be done again unless you would choose not to have your hair colored. Gray hair is stunning and can change to 50,000 shades of gray. I find this challenge a beautiful experience.
