Learn about founder KJ D'AUBYN's Obsession
"She just wanted hair like her daughter..."
Over two decades ago, a new client walked into my salon with her 5-year-old-daughter. As she sat in my chair, I heard complaint after complaint about her aging hair. She spent what seemed like an hour combing her fingers through her dry, brittle hair, holding it away from her head demonstrating the new brassy normal of her once beautiful blonde mane. I'm so sick of my hair!
“I'm ready to cut it all off!”
With tears in her eyes and in total frustration, she pointed to her daughter's soft beautiful locks.
“HOW DO I GET THAT HAIR AGAIN?”
Immediately, I was obsessed with getting that bouncy natural hair she was craving. And in that moment, I became committed to a solution for all women, not just the ones sitting in my chair.
Honestly, I had no idea how hard it was going to be. After years of formulation and working with my chemist husband Randall, we came up with an answer that hair professionals can easily use to give this seamless, natural look and feel to their loyal clients.
KJ's signature formula created with nontraditional ingredients quickly became the best-kept salon secret in her home state of Arizona, tending to the needs of women who wanted to restore their hair from the hot desert sun. It wasn't long before she was featured as the must-have product in local Arizona magazines and on-air media.
THEN GUESS WHO CAME CALLING?
Hollywood On-Set Hair Pros!
Would you believe that KJ’s biggest client right now is Hollywood?
She was called in to teach a class to train top hair stylists in the film industry to help keep the actors and actresses’s hair looking natural over the course of long movie shoots without nasty chemicals, forehead stains and demarcation lines.
KJ’s easy to use formulation was a welcomed solution for working quickly on-set in between scenes, keeping actors' hair fresh and natural without damage to their existing hair color.
Earlier this year, she was invited to teach a class to award-winning hairstylists, giving them the advantage for low-maintenance hair for working on-location and studio sets. Here's what some of the students had to say...
AS FEATURED IN YOUR TRUSTED
HEALTH & BEAUTY MAGAZINES
The illusion of hair color coverage has to do with the formulation, your own pigmented hair and the percent of un-pigmented hair (the hair we call “gray”). This is also true for traditional dyes. The difference is D’Aubyn Color pigments do not pre-lighten your hair: so it never turns brassy; does not break down the hair fiber; and therefore does not create an intense line of demarcation.
The purpose of the archaic coloring process is to create a high pH environment in order to deposit the artificial pigment. This may result in more uniform color, which has the appearance of better coverage, but in reality, it delivers a monochromatic color which then fades out to an unnatural version of your own color that once was.
The only time you’ll hear me use the word “permanent” in reference to hair color is when I’m speaking of the pigment your body produces in your hair all on its own. The hair color industry geniously labeled traditional oxidation dyes that use 20% H202 or higher “permanent” - True, these dyes permanently alter your hair but that is not the marketing that is being suggested.
All artificial hair pigments will fade with washing. If the question is: will it completely wash out of my hair and will my un-pigmented strands revert back to white after a certain time? The answer is: when you color your hair with D’Aubyn Color pigments, yes, it will fade with washings, but, no, it will never completely revert back to its original strand of color (or un-color) until you cut it out.
Because of the lack of ammonia and peroxide ingredients, D'Aubyn Color will not stain your skin, only your hair.
The D'Aubyn Color ingredients are so gentle, you can reapply color within the same session. However you may want to wait a couple days to see your results before you reformulate and/or reapply.
There are several factors that determine how often you will desire to color your hair. The first is the formulation for your particular percentage of un-pigmented hair vs pigmented hair. The good news is that you will no longer struggle with a line of demarcation in your pigmented hair (unless you choose a color much darker than your dominant level of pigment.) And, the beauty of the D’Aubyn Color pigments is that you can use a shade as light as you want because it will not affect or lighten your own pigment.
I encourage all of my clients to go with what is in their strands now and make it work for them. So if you’ve got clusters of un-pigmented hair, turn those into beautiful highlights with D’Aubyn Color and you’ll have seamless hair color that lasts till you grow it out, or not - your choice! Another factor is your particular porosity of hair fiber and how often you wash it.
The last, but probably most important, is your particular aesthetic view of your hair color. I find that the clients who “decide” they have beautiful hair have a much more sustainable hair color experience.
It is definitely advisable to cover all surfaces that you’d not want to stain in any way. However, it does not stain your skin. Gloves are recommended when you are applying the color.
