Silk Bodifier – Volumizing Mousse


Pureology Color Stylist Review

Tricia’s Treasures had the honor of being able to interview Natasha Sunshine and get her knowledge of the Pureology Color Stylist line. I reviewed the Precious Oil line already and you can find the information to those products HERE. I will now introduce you to another set of products in the serious color care line. To go straight to the interview with Natasha Sunshine click HERE.

Color Stylist Root Lift Mousse
The Color Stylist Root Lift has a medium-high control level. In addition, the benefits are that it builds noticeable volume at root area providing all day volume and shine. Color Stylist Root Lift will not leave your hair feeling tacky and sticky. Also, it is lightweight and gives long-lasting control to your hair.

How to Use
Apply to clean, damp hair using the direct-to-root applicator or dispense product in palm and distribute evenly from base to ends. Comb through. Blow-dry and style.
My Verdict
When I was a teenager I always put different products in my hair from mousse, gel, and hairspray. As I got older I veered away from putting different products in my hair mainly due to most of the products I used damaged my hair. I decided to give this product a try, as this is a color care product that will not harm your color or damage your hair. I was pleasantly surprised as this product did not leave my hair sticky like I expect. Nor, did it feel heavy and stiff. I really like how it gave my hair nice volume and lift. Furthermore, it did not strip my color or make my hair look dull. This is a product that I see myself using almost daily. I recommend Color Stylist Root Lift Mousse especially if you have color treated hair. You can find where to get these products at Pureology. Amazon has a selection of Pureology products as well.
Color Stylist Silk Bodifier Mousse
The Silk Bodifier Mousse has a medium control level. This Mousse is a rich conditioning formula that adds fullness and volume through your hair. Additionally, it leaves hair soft and shiny
. This product was awarded a beauty award in 2011 for best volumizer!
How To Use
Dispense mousse in palm and apply to damp hair before styling.
My Verdict
I think this product is great. If you want to add body and shine to your hair this is the product for you. I loved how it made my hair silky and shiny while protecting and making my hair more vibrant. The Color Stylist Bodifier Mousse will not leave your hair sticky or feel like you have glue stuck in your hair. In addition, this is very light weight and won’t weigh your hair down. I have very thick and long hair and do not like products that make me feel as if I have a brick on my head! This is another product to use on my list.You can check where to find this product on Pureology or at Amazon

Color Stylist Illuminating Curl Shaping Lotion
The Color Stylist Illuminating Curl Shaping Lotion had a medium control level. This product is lightweight fortifying lotion that shapes curls and waves. In addition, it delivers 24 hours of definition and moisture. Also, it was awarded a healthy beauty award 2012 for best curl cream.
How To Use
Apply to damp hair and air-dry or diffuse for defined, conditioned waves and curls.
My Verdict
I like this product very much as it did not leave my hair feeling stiff. The scent is not over powering and very light. What I really liked a lot is that it helped tame my frizz. My hair is wavy and very prone to frizz as I live in the hot state of Florida. I always have to find something to tame my frizz away. This is what you may need if you’re looking for something to define your curls while keeping the frizz under control. Additionally, it does not give your hair a wet greasy look. My hair is typically wavy and has a natural curl although; it is not as defined as I would like it to be, this product has helped me put more definition to my curls. If you want to Rock it with this product check out Pureology for your nearest Salon to purchase or Amazon.

Interview with Hair Stylist Natasha Sunshine

Natasha Sunshine is the founder of Byu-ti (Pronounced beauty) hair salon in Los Angeles. Natasha specializes in hair styling, cutting, coloring, relaxing, extensions, and hair products in the Santa Monica, CA region. In addition to her using quality products such as Pureology and Redken, Natasha has industrialized seven products of her own called Byu-Niu. Byu-Niu is a hair vitamin to help promote hair to grow twice as fast as it normally would. Sunshine has also produced six Byu-ti blenders to add to any conditioner to enrich and heal hair.
This is the series of questions we asked Natasha regarding the products we have been able to review. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as we have.

Illuminating Curl Product Questions
1. Does this product emphasize current curls, or provide additional curls?
Illuminating curl has a medium to soft hold which is great for all types of curls. If diffused you can push in an additional curl. If you apply, then twist the curls and let dry naturally, it will dry in a hanging position and give weight to too curly hair. When using this technique, you’ll want to scrunch the hair to break the product crunch once the hair has dried completely. You’ll end up with soft yet shiny curls.

Root Lift/Silk Bodifier Product Questions
2. What are the major differences between these two products and other volume building products?

They are very different products as the Root Lift will add hold and volume to your hair. You can concentrate the product at the root area only or apply it throughout for all over volume. Silk Bodifier has a very light hold giving hair a weightless volume. It’s wonderful for very fine hair to get volume without the heavy product feel.

3. How strong of a hold does this product maintain?
Root Lift has a medium to strong hold and Silk Bodifier has a soft hold.

Precious Oil Product Questions
4. What makes Precious Oils stand out in comparison to other oil related products?
Besides the incredible healing effect it has on the hair, it great because it’s not limited to only being used as a treatment. When using as a treatment, you can add a couple of pumps to your conditioner or once a week masque for extra reparative effects. It can also be left in the hair over night or slicked back into a bun for a day look that repairs the hair at the same time. When styling hair, it can also be added to a completed style for extra shine or pumped into your styler before drying for added shine.

5. What products does this work well with in maintaining salon quality effects?
Precious Oil works wonders when added to the Precious Oil masque as a once a week treatment. When using with a styler, we recommend using it on medium to thicker hair types and in conjunction with smoothing products like the CuticlePolisher or the SuperSmooth line.
Thank you Natasha for taking your time to submit the answers to our questions.

This revolutionary product is amazing. The one thing I observed immediately was the attractive design of the bottles.

This conditioner is not like any conditioner I have ever used before. I know some may say what difference does a conditioner make? Well let me tell you! The conditioner itself is smooth and silky. In addition, it conditions your hair, unlike some conditioners where you need to use a lot of conditioner to get the job done! You only need a a small amount and it gets the job completed.

On May 22, 2012, Pureology and Global Green USA provided Texas School for the Deaf in Austin Texas with a grant.
