We are absolutely loving the nail trends this season with all of the bright vibrant colors!  They kind of remind us of our bottles!  These adorable looks can be easily achieved in a few quick steps. 

Gradient Manicure

A gradient manicure is the gradual blend of two colors going from light to dark as seen in the example below.  First, select the two shades you desire, one light and one dark.  Next, grab a bottle of fast drying clear top coat and that’s it for supplies.  Begin by applying the light shade to the bottom of one nail and the dark shade to the tip.  While still wet, sweep the top coat over the entire nail starting from the bottom and move towards the tip in one motion.  This will drag the light polish into the darker tip color giving it the gradient effect.  Repeat this on each nail, cleaning the top coat brush in between. 

You can also create this look using a slightly different technique with a makeup sponge.  We found it a little more time consuming and a tad bit messier, but it works great as well.  Here is a link to a great picture tutorial.  Just Click Here

Ombré Manicure

An ombré manicure has often been the term used to describe the gradient manicure but it is actually quite different.  A true ombré is the gradual let-down of one color, from one nail to the next, as seen in the example below.  To achieve this look you will need a dark shade of polish, a matte white polish, a fast drying top coat, and something you can mix polish in such as a small disposable dish or even a paper plate.  Because you will be mixing the dark shade with white to obtain your lighter colors, you will want to make sure you have an ample amount of both polishes.  First, pour a very generous amount of your dark shade into your mixing dish.  You will want to pour enough to coat all of your nails.  Paint both of your pinky nails the dark shade.  Next, add a few drops of white polish to the dark shade in your dish and mix to create your next let-down shade.  Paint both of your ring fingers.  Then add a few more drops of white polish to this now lighter shade to make the next one.  Hopefully by now you get the gist of it, just keep it going until you have painted your thumbs the lightest mixed shade.  Finally, brush on a top coat if desired.  

Skittle Manicure

For this last look, you will need a minimum of two shades of polish and a fast drying top coat.  We like to use five, a different color for each nail.  These colors do not need to be in the same color family, think of a bag of skittles, which is how this manicure got its name.  We will not bore you with a step by step as this one is pretty easy and up to your imagination.  You can use two colors and paint the full nail in an alternating pattern or simply paint each full nail a different color, the choice is yours.  When you are all done, brush on a top coat if desired.
Now for something fun!  Why not experiment and combine the Gradient Manicure with the Skittles Manicure or Ombré Manicure.  The possibilities are endless!

Shine For The Holidays!

It’s the holiday season, and that means it’s time for you to shine, shine, shine!  Whether it’s your office party, a family get-together, or an extra-nice date with that special someone, you’ll want to look festive, fun and FANTASTIC  from head to toe.

Of course, your hair is a main component of your appearance. But how can you get great-looking shiny hair when cold weather, indoor heating, and the stressful schedule of the season all work 24/7 to make your locks look blah?

The first step to shiny hair is to wash it less often. (Hurray! A time saver!) Try washing every second or third day. Brush your hair thoroughly, morning and evening, to distribute your natural oils.

When you do wash it, be sure to use a product that adds essential moisture to your hair. Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner are perfect for the job!  They’ll leave your hair hydrated, soft and silky smooth.
That’s great for everyday shine, but this month you’ll want to turn up the wattage. For a head-turning sheen, pull out the Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Weightless Healing Dry Oil.  This spray formula infuses your hair with red-carpet shine.  Your color and highlights will pop with a multifaceted glow, and however you style it, your hair will look smooth and glossy. 
BONUS:  while it’s making you look gorgeous, Weightless Healing Dry Oil also works behind the scenes, mending your split ends and taming your winter fly-away frizzies.  And it even protects your hair from harmful styling heat and damaging winter-time temperatures.
Use this super versatile product on towel dry hair to infuse every strand as you style. Once your ‘do is done, spray it again with a mist of Healing Dry Oil for maximum shine, making you ready for any holiday occasion. Get ready for the compliments!

Organix Reality Makeover: A Real Customer Shares Her Real Transformation

One of the best parts of working here at Organix HQ is hearing the feedback from satisfied customers -- like Cynthia Leon who sent us rave reviews on Organix Ever Straight Brazilian Keratin Therapy 30 Day Smoothing Treatment. Cynthia happily agreed to share “Before” and “After” photos and answer some interview questions. Enjoy!

Describe your hair before you tried this Organix Smoothing Treatment. What didn’t you like about it?

BEFORE: "excessively tangled,
dull and difficult to manage."
Prior to using Organix Ever Straight Brazilian Keratin Therapy, I did not like the overall condition of my hair: dry with brittle appearing ends, excessively tangled, dull and difficult to manage any form of hair style. I would wash and style my hair to be the best of my ability each morning, but by the time I arrived to my office my hair didn’t look the way it did prior to leaving the house. My hair would fall limp where I had applied hairspray or it appeared as if I had a shelf in front – ouch. I walked around with my hair like this for years. Double ouch.

Have you tried similar products before? At home or in the salon? Were your results satisfactory?

I had previously tried deep conditioning products by Paul Mitchell and Redkin at home but the results were not intense nor long lasting. I still had plenty of waves in my hair, far less tangled but I never gained control of my hair for styling.

What were your thoughts when you found the 30 Day Smoothing Treatment in the store?

When I found the 30 Day Smoothing Treatment on the store shelf my immediate thought was “hmmm, this sounds familiar to the hair straightening method the salon quoted me for $500.” I grabbed a box, saw that the product was new on the market and thought for $14.99, this product claims to straighten hair by up to 95% for up to 30 days, I knew I could not go wrong and so my unknown journey into hair transformation was about to unfold. It’s so exciting to read back my thoughts and I stand behind my results 100%.

Tell us what you thought about the process of using it versus what your expectations were.

The process was virtually effortless. After I applied the product I waited the full 30 minutes before blow drying. My expectations were to really have more straight hair and shiny. I kept expectations low as I had never previously come across a product that loved my hair so much! The product far exceeded my anticipated expectations – I was in awe.

Describe your hair after you tried the product. What were the immediate improvements? Were there any improvements you didn’t expect? What were they?

AFTER: "The improvements
were 100% in appearance,
luster, manageability, non-
frizzy and body."
After using the product my hair was TRANSFORMED – literally. Using the product resulted in me attaining completely straight hair, amazing. The improvements were 100% in appearance, luster, manageability, non-frizzy, and body. I have quite a bit of hair and did not even require the entire bottle – unbelievable. I was proud of my revitalized hair. I stared in the mirror for a full hour saying to myself “no way.” I combed through my hair, the tangles had vanished. I went to bed and woke up with my hair appearing in the same condition. A few combs and I was out the door. The improvements gained were unimaginable as I never, in my wildest thoughts believed that I could have beautiful, shiny, healthy looking hair.

Have you received any comments or reactions about your new look? Tell us about some of them.

The first people to see my new look were my co-workers and to summarize their comments makes my eyes water:
1. WOW
2. I didn’t recognize you
3. Your hair looks amazing, so you finally got it done (meaning the hair salon at $500)
4. Your hair looks so healthy, I really like it
5. How did you do that?
6. What did you use?
7. Do you mind if I try that on my hair, too? (too cute)
8. Was it hard to apply?
9. You look stunning
10. You look beautiful

Do you intend to use this product again and/or recommend it to a friend? If so, why?

I can’t imagine going back to the “old” hair I used to have, O-M-G NO! I have also recommended this product to my friends. The greatest part is their initial reaction to the appearance of my hair, they get past that and then ask “what did you do?” Thus, I share my wonderful experience and they can’t get over the transformation and the price – we’re cost conscious minded, more value for the dollar is our hope, the results far outweigh the cost – I am still in awe – thank you very much.

I am a customer of life and here is why.

Using this product has not changed my hair but transformed it. I have not used that term often in my day to day life. I am no longer obsessed with washing my hair each morning and “wishing” for it to look okay. I no longer have to spend $16 on hairspray each month nor pretend it actually held my hair in place (please!). I have style now with a respectable and professional looking appearance. No matter how naive one may be about perception of appearance and hair “hair matters, period.” This product was made for me is how I truly feel. Also, my hair now looks the same way it did when I left my home for the day, that is priceless to me. Outdoor elements, wind, bring it on – I just need my comb. This is a master definition of hair transformation. I did it! (yes, with your help!)

It's Electric!

You’ve seen the headlines – winter arrived early this year, dumping snow on much of the east coast just in time for Halloween. With cold weather, we get that frustrating flyaway, static hair. Argh!!! So what can you do to keep your hair in place and looking great, regardless of what Mother Nature throws our way?

First, let’s look at what causes flyaway hair, and why it happens primarily in the winter. It all goes back to atoms, and that proton/neutron/electron stuff you learned way back in elementary school. (Who knew it would relate to managing your hair? Maybe we would have paid more attention!)

The electrons in an atom have a negative charge. They are loose, floating around the center, and can move from atom to atom. The protons in the center have a positive charge. An atom that loses electrons, such as when two items are rubbed together, has more positive charge because it has more protons left than electrons.

Back to your hair: when you take off your winter hat, it rubs against your hair. Electrons move from your hair to the hat. A static charge builds up because now each of the hairs has a positive charge. Things with the same charge repel each other. (Think magnets.) So your hair strands try to get as far from each other as possible, standing up and away from the others. The result? A bad hair day.

But there’s a solution. In moister environments, like the humid summer months, the static would simply disperse through the air and not build up. In the winter when the air is dry and the heat is on, the static flows directly to your hair. Add some moisture, and voila! Your hair stays smooth and static free.

That’s where we can help. Applying Organix Moroccan Argan Oil to your hair infuses the necessary moisture into each strand, keeping the static look at bay. It also heals and renews your hair from the damaging dry heat indoors and the freezing temperatures outdoors , while creating softness and strength in every strand.

Organix offers three types of Moroccan Argan Oil so you can choose the best one for your hair type.
-- Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil works well for all hair types.
-- Organix Light Penetrating Oil is great for pampering fine, brittle and delicate textured hair.
-- Or if your hair is coarse, damaged or dry, whip it into shape with Organix Extra Penetrating Oil.

With Organix Moroccan Argan Oil products, you can fight back at winter, its drying effects, and the resulting static. Take off that winter hat and show off your smooth, sexy tresses!

Swept Away at the Emmys

Sunday evening is the time to check out the glamour, the bling, and of course, the red-carpet hairstyles of the Emmy awards. Doing a bit of research on my own, I’m noticing quite a few of TV’s leading ladies in oh-so-smooth hairdos with side swept bangs. Whether it’s Tina Fey or Christina Hendricks, Kate Winslet or the gals from Glee, bangs are framing these famous faces. Fortunately for the rest of us, this is an easy act to follow.

If you haven’t tried bangs since elementary school, this is a great style to experiment with. Side swept bangs are long enough to be versatile. When you don’t want them, you can pull them back and incorporate them into your longer strands. And when you want to look like a star, they’re easy to style – even easier when you use Organix Moroccan Smooth Perfection Blow Out Cream. It’s great for creating these smooth, sleek styles that the stars are loving, AND it reduces your blow drying time!

Start with a shampoo and conditioner that will moisturize and fight your frizzies – like Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. They’ll pamper your tresses with the hydration they need to be smooth, silky and shiny, giving you a great look whether you twist your hair up or leave it loose and tousled.

While your hair is still towel-dry, apply Moroccan Smooth Perfection Blow Out Cream to your palm, rub your hands together and spread this lush lotion throughout your hair, but especially on your bangs. Don’t worry – it won’t leave a residue. Blow dry your hair, but leave your bangs till last – they’re getting special attention!

Use a radial brush – it’s perfect for side swept bangs because you can pull your hair straight while curling the ends. With your brush under your bangs, pull your hair to the side. Your radial brush needs to be small enough to give some tension as you pull.

Set your blow dryer on low heat. Start at your roots and move along the length of your bangs while keeping the tension with your brush. Repeat until your bangs are dry, then seal the style with a shot of cold air. Finish with a light shot of hair spray, and you’ll be ready for those paparazzi!
