BTS: Be A #NoYellowChick Video

It all started in a boardroom meeting with our marketing team and a cheeky answer to the question: “What’s cute and yellow?”

Why a chick, of course!

Then came the idea of a pun on comparing a cute baby chick to a no yellow blonde chick. And thus, the be a #noyellowchick campaign was born.

The first step was the search for the perfect #noyellowchick. We scoured the Star Now website and stumbled across Bethany’s profile and we knew instantly that she would be the face of our #noyellowchick campaign. There was just that special something about her that gave us that “A-ha! She’s the one” vibe.

Communication with Bethany began, and it was all smooth sailing from there. She agreed to be our girl and we made the simple yet difficult request for her to not touch her hair for 6 weeks before the shoot. This meant no salon visits and no washing with any purple shampoo for this period of time.

In the meantime, we sussed out some locations with great bathrooms where we could do the shoot. We needed a minimalistic bathroom that had the right aesthetics and adequate space for the concept we had in mind. After scouring a few luxury hotels and apartments, we ended up settling with a really cute Airbnb that had exactly what we wanted.

Soon dates were set, the venue was booked, costumes purchased, videographer locked in, makeup and hairstylists were arranged, and it was full steam ahead!

The date flew by so quickly and Bethany’s hair was the perfect tinge of yellow. When we finally met Bethany, she made an immediate impression and we clicked with her straight away. We just knew we had made the right choice for our #noyellowchick.

When we arrived at the venue, it was a quick set up before prepping Bethany for the first mirror scene. We didn’t do anything with her hair but just applied some light makeup with the natural ‘no-makeup’ makeup look. Bethany is a natural stunner anyway, so she looked absolutely flawless.

The second scene involved the tricky shower. How to get good angles in tight spaces, right? Bethany handled it super well as she did have to spend a fair bit of time in there. But how’s this for impressive? The outcome achieved by the No Yellow Vegan Shampoo and Mask were the result of one wash!

First, we washed Bethany’s hair with a normal Fanola shampoo to remove excess oils and buildup of any product she may have had. Then we applied the No Yellow Vegan Shampoo thoroughly on her hair and let it sit for about 20 minutes. Once 20 minutes was up, we rinsed it out and applied the Fanola No Yellow Vegan Mask and left it on for an additional 20 minutes.

After the final rinse off, we commenced to style Bethany’s hair and do her ‘going out’ makeup look for that hair flick scene. What you see in the video is the final toning result of one wash! How brilliant is that? It created such a wonderful ashy blonde and we were stoked at how it turned out.

It was a wrap after 12 long hours of production. Bethany did an amazing job and we couldn’t be happier.

Then came the editing and addition of the little chick in the introduction. We didn’t film the chick of course, although we’d love to claim we did (then we’d have a cute little office chick). The chick was a stock video we purchased and came the challenge of combining that shot with the rest of the commercial in a way that was cohesive and got the message across.

After multiple edits, revisions and addition of some special effects, we had a final video that we can be truly proud of! Luckily, we have a pretty cool in-house videographer who brought the vision to life. Great job, Johnny!

We hope you enjoyed our #noyellowchick video and you love the No Yellow Vegan as much as we do! Please share your thoughts in the comments below. We’d love to hear from you!

Silver Toner

The silver trend has been one of the most popular colour trends of 2018 and it is still continuing to shine. Fanola’s Silver Toner has been used by our favourite Australian stylists like @loveisinthehair_byjanet and @ultrafadebyrich to produce amazing colour results on their client’s hair. As desired as luscious silver locks are, it is no easy feat to achieve. Your client needs to be prepared to commit Your client’s hair needs be lightened to a level 10 or at least a clean level 9 for it to be a nice silver result.

But why Fanola’s Silver Toner? As part of the Prestige range, the toner has all the benefits of Fanola colours that is enriched with Ginkgo Biloba which helps prevent hair loss and promotes hair growth. The formula offers protection for both the hair and scalp, leaving it healthier and shinier. Fanola colours is known for its intensity, vibrancy and richness in colour, providing root to tip coverage.

@loveisinthehair_byjanet has created some beautiful silver hair using Fanola colours and toners, as pictured below.

Here are a few things your client should know before they attempt to go silver:

It is time consuming  

Depending on the current colour of your client’s hair, it would first start with the lightening process. This could take numerous sittings to lift hair to the right level before the full effect of silver toner can result. Also dependent on this process is cost – the more sessions, the costlier achieving this goal will be. Bleaching can also damage the ends of hair, so your client may also need to be prepared for a shorter length in the process.

What Fanola Silver Toner does

The silver toner performs two functions. First, it tones yellow out of bleached hair to neutralise the yellow. Then it simultaneously deposits silver onto hair.

Different shades and results on different hair

Your client may have come to you with a picture from Instagram of how they wanted their hair to look. Tell them that results may vary depending on the porosity of their hair, how much yellow needs to be counteracted and how long it has been left on. Silver hair also looks better with different dimensions

They don’t have to do their full head of hair

If your client isn’t prepared to fully commit to all silver, then you might suggest some silver highlights to pair with a cool toner. They can also blend it in with other silver tones such as a blue or violet.

Depends on client’s complexion

Make sure your client is aware that different shades of silver will suit them better based on their complexion. Silver and grey are cool tones that tend to suit paler or olive complexions.

Maintaining silver hair

Your clients will need to know that silver hair requires regular maintenance. The first step is shampooing less often to ensure their silver tone stays intact. They may need to invest in a dry shampoo to keep their hair fresh between washes. They will also need to wash their hair with cool water to avoid fading from heat.

Purple shampoo is an essential. Fanola’s No Yellow Shampoo is the perfect pair as it will tone out unwanted yellow tones and keep the hair cool. It is recommended for use once a week alongside the mask. Another essential is thermal protector to reduce colour damage from hot styling tools.

Fiber Fix

Perhaps your clients have grown accustomed to brands such as Olaplex and Cureplex. These -plex treatments are essential for improving hair quality during lifting and colouring services. They help restructure the bonds in the hair, leaving it silkier and softer during and after the process. Fanola’s Fiber Fix performs a similar role in the process.

This treatment is essential in the bleaching or colouring service to protect your client’s hair. When bleaching and colouring, the outer layer of the hair cuticle is opened in order to change the structure of the hair to change its colour. The hair is damaged in this process as hair bonds are being broken and in parts of the hair cuticle. Applying this treatment during the service has the ability to protect and restructure the hair simultaneously.

Fiber Fix has highly concentrated levels of amino acids that penetrates the hair structure. This, in effect, strengthens and seals the structural bond of the hair. Hair, like skin and nails, is made of keratin. Amino acids help to multiply keratin bonds to reinforce the sulphur bridges that have been damaged during chemical treatments. It treats hair simultaneously as it is being lightened or coloured, leaving hair more plump, shiny and stronger after a colouring service.

Fiber Fix comes in a three-part treatment:

The first part is the Bond Fixer No.1 at a 3,0 – 3,5 pH is a restorative treatment that protects and restructures the hair fibre during technical services. While the chemical process is occurring, it penetrates the hair to restore it, leaving hair shiny, strong and healthy.

The second step is Bond Connector No. 2 at a 3,3 – 3,7 pH acts as a sealing cream in application. It completes and stabilises hair to lock in the colour. It protects and soothes hair for a more intense and lasting colour.

The final step of Fiber Fix is the multifunctional finalising shampoo at a pH of 4,3 – 4,7. It locks in colour and seals the cuticle, protecting the hair.

The result of the Fiber Fix treatment is softer and smoother hair. The client will not recognise that their hair has been broken and damaged in the colouring process as it emerges even softer and smoother than it had been prior to the treatment.

Nutricare

Of all Fanola’s range, Nutricare is undoubtedly a crowd favourite. It is by far the most nourishing for dry and frizzy hair because of its incredible properties. Nutricare is enriched with the goodness of Linseed Oil and the milk proteins Casein and Whey which reap of benefits. Many avid lovers of Nutricare enjoy the range’s delightful rich milky fragrance.

Linseed Oil, also known as Flaxseed Oil, is an ingredient renowned for all its haircare advantages. It is abundant in fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that is essential for healthy hair. Regular application of Linseed Oil promotes hair growth and prevents hair loss. Linseed Oil is also known to eliminate dandruff and flakiness on the scalp. It maintains moisture in the hair, keeping hair lustrous and shiny.

Your hair is made of proteins which are essential for hair tissue growth and repair. Milk proteins contain casein and whey that both greatly benefit hair. Casein contains a large amount of glutamine that stimulates the hair follicle growth cycle. Whey protein has been used to prevent hair loss, strengthen hair and help it grow faster. These milk proteins are abundant in amino acids and proteins essential for healthy hair. It increases hydration and elasticity of the hair, carrying restructuring and healing properties.

The Nutricare range in itself is the most extensive in Fanola’s Prestige. Each product performs a different function to combat all the problems associated with dry and frizzy hair.

Nutricare Shampoo

Nutricare Shampoo is the first and most important step of the Nutricare routine to kickstart the cleansing process. It is recommended to do two washes; the first wash will open up the cuticle by releasing the dirt, oil and product build up in hair; and the second wash will penetrate the cuticle for a thorough cleanse by lifting all the dirt, oil and product out of the hair.

Nutricare Conditioner

It is always important to condition hair after shampooing to seal off the cuticle and lock in moisture. Nutricare Conditioner performs a deeply hydrating and nourishing action that leaves hair extra soft and silky.

Nutricare Restructuring Mask

If your client is looking for a deeper or more intensified treatment, Nutricare Restructuring Mask is a concentrated formula that works hard at restructuring hair back to health and shine. Leaving the mask on for 5-10 minutes once or twice a week allows it to penetrate the hair for a more thorough treatment, leaving it nourished, silky and shiny.

Nutricare Leave-In Conditioner and Lotion

If your client complains of not having time during a shower to apply the restructuring mask, they can always try this leave-in conditioner. It is the perfect solution as it can be applied on towel dried or damp hair after a shower and performs an intense nourishing and restructuring action. The formula is lightweight, while reducing frizz and keeping hair coated with silky shine.

If your client’s hair is incredibly dry, the Nutricare Leave-In Restructuring Lotion is effective for treatment of fragile and dull hair. A few drops to dry or damp hair perform a revitalising, detangling and softening action to restore elasticity and shine to hair.

A Match Made in Hair-ven

Fanola No Yellow and Nutricare

Fanola No Yellow will bring back the purest vibrancy of blonde hair. The range smells like the delicious scent of sherbet lollies. As a shampoo and mask, it is a pure deposit. The intense violet micro-pigments may be alarming at first, but rest assured it will neutralise and mute unwanted yellow tones. It will turn bleached and blonde hair into gorgeously bright cool tones of ashy goodness.

As we all know, bleaching and lightening services can be quite damaging to the hair. This is because bleach removes colour from hair in the process of oxidation, raising the hair’s outer cuticle to allow the bleaching agent to penetrate. Repeated bleaching can result in a continuous loss of moisture, making hair dry and brittle in the process. No Yellow works extremely well to tone bleached and lightened hair, but it does not provide hair with that added nourishment that de-coloured hair needs to look and feel healthy.

Therefore, it is highly recommended to restore hydration to hair with the extensive range of delectable Fanola Nutricare products to uphold the moisture and to keep your hair shiny and healthy. Continuously using Nutricare with No Yellow is a match made in heaven as the two work in perfect synergy. With a wide selection to choose from, you are bound to find the right one for you.

Nutricare Shampoo and Conditioner smells decadently rich and has a creamy butterscotch scent. The shampoo works extremely well for very damaged and weak hair as it repairs and strengthens the hair fibres leaving the hair feeling instantly improved as if it were renewed. The hair is left stronger as the conditioner reconstructs and protects the hair from further damage. Nutricare Shampoo and Conditioner has been designed to target each strand of hair according to its own level of damage.

The Nutricare Restructuring range smells a bit like Lanolin cream. The Restructuring Mask adds moisture to the hair by offering deep repairing and nourishing properties to allow hair to stay smoother, sleeker and easier to detangle.

When dealing with split ends, the Nutricare Restructuring Cream is your best friend. Thanks to its unique formulation, the cream will reconstruct and repair the hair. The Leave-In Conditioner is essential to maintain that extra repairing action as it makes the hair feel stronger, smoother and look shinier.

To add more moisture, if need be, the Nutricare Leave-In Restructuring Spray Mask 10 Action can be added as it is extra conditioning. Its lightweight formula will not weigh the hair down at all.

Last but certainly not least, the Nutricare Restructuring Fluid Crystals serum smells like sweet juicy watermelon on a hot summer’s day. It comes in a luscious tangerine colour that offers a non-greasy formula making hair more manageable, shinier and softer to touch.

Fanola No Orange and After Colour

Fanola’s No Orange range is ideal for dark blondes as those colours tend to emit orange and copper reflections. It is effective for neutralising orange tones in dark blonde hair. No Orange Shampoo and Mask smells fresh, zesty and citrusy just like men’s aftershave.

To really get that long lasting colour when using No Orange, use Fanola’s After Colour Range. Not only does it smell like delicate scents of musk, but it will protect your hair colour from fading. It will allow your hair to stay nice, silky and lively.

After Colour Shampoo protects coloured hair by locking in the colour, making hair shine more vibrantly. The rich texture of the conditioner leaves coloured hair easier to detangle and smooth out while still enhancing the lustre and protecting the colour. The mask proves to be nourishing for weak and dry hair as it wraps a lightweight film to protect against the elements of everyday wear and tear.

After Colour Fluid Crystals is a hypnotic green fluid that smells like watermelon, also lightweight to give you hair that added shine without weighing it down.

Do your hair a favour by toning and protecting your brilliant colour, while also giving your hair that nourishment it needs to stay healthy and shiny.

Fanola listened to consumers and made their haircare and styling ranges available for the wider public to enjoy in the comfort of their own homes and not just limited to salons.

Our retail selection is inclusive of Fanola’s hair care range, renowned for its nourishing properties. With a hair care range that tailors to every hair type, Fanola is the talk of the town.

One of the most highly pigmented violet shampoos on the market, it has gained widespread popularity and raving reviews.

Mission

Fanola’s mission is to make the world beautiful. Our vision is to deliver cost-effective and affordable professional grade products to salons in Australia and across the globe. It is our hairstylists that we need to nurture, for they are the master crafters of hair, the visionaries, the creators. They will use Fanola colours to unleash their creativity and achieve hair artistry with their craft. The exquisite results speak for themselves.

Professional Range

As previously mentioned, Fanola was first developed for the professional hairstylist. These products can only be used by qualified hair technicians because they require the knowledge, skills and expertise of a professional, such as bleach, treatments and colour. Here is a small introduction to some of Fanola’s exclusively professional range:

Prestige Colours

Fanola’s prestige colour is a colouring cream enriched with Gingko Biloba and other anti-oxidants for not only an excellent colour result, but also healthier and shinier hair. With a selection of 93 shades, 11 super lighteners and 3 toners, there is plenty for the hair technician to work with and clients to choose from. Low in ammonia, the colours are formulated for safe and reliable performance. Also, part of the prestige professional range is Fanola’s peroxides and bleaches that always produce immaculate results.

Fiber Fix Professional Intro Kit

Fiber Fix

To complement its technical bleaching and colouring products, Fanola has introduced this three-step performance enhancing restructuring formula. It is mixed with colour and bleach to simultaneously restructure hair during bleaching services, without affecting the lifting power and final colour result. Chemical services can have a damaging effect on the hair, so clients will notice smoother and softer hair with the combination of this treatment.

Oro Therapy Colours

Oro Therapy is a line created for the ultimate nourishment, care and protection for clients. Enriched with 24K Gold, Argan Oil, Sweet Cypress Oil, Vitamin E and sun protectants, this range takes hair care seriously: Micro-particles of gold delivers shine; Argan Oil protects, brightens, nourishes and strengthens hair; Sweet Cypress has anti-aging properties and leaves hair smooth and voluminous; UV filters protect from UVB and UVA rays; and Vitamin E protects hair from free radicals. The Oro Therapy formula is also Ammonia free.

Fanola Liss Ker Straightening Cream 300ml

Liss Kerr

Liss Kerr is a technical smoothing treatment that tames frizzy and rebellious hair for up to 10 weeks. This straightening anti-frizz cream works externally, activated by the heat of the straightener. With concentrated Glyoxylic Acid, the formula fixes itself around the shaft, creating an external sheath that still allows the hair to breathe, and memorises the straightening action. It is enriched with Keratin and Macadamia Oil that adds proteins and soothing substances which leaves hair soft and combats split ends. The formula is Formaldehyde free, making it safe to use.

No Yellow Color

No Yellow Color delivers a professional line of technical products that focus solely on producing immaculate blonde results on bleached and lightened hair. This range is a colouring and bleaching system which neutralises undesired yellow tones in hair during the technical service in salons. No Yellow Color achieves brilliant blonde results.

Prestige Hair Care

The prestige range for retail products is inclusive of all its lines of shampoos, conditioners and treatments that are safe for personal use at home. There is a haircare line that caters for every hair type including a range for frizzy, curly, smooth and coloured hair.

Botugen Hair System

You can think of Botugen like the botox for hair. It is made with a special plant peptide called botulinum toxin that penetrates impoverished areas of hair, restoring its health from the inside. Botugen is a synergy of botulinum toxin, Keratin and Hyaluronic acid, technology Fanola calls Botolife, that together reconstructs damaged hair by restoring protein and hydrating the hair in problem areas. The result of this 4-step treatment is hair returned to its natural protein balance, strengthened cuticles and more compact and elastic hair, giving it a healthier and more vibrant look.

Keraterm Hair System

Keraterm is a system designed for frizzy, rebellious and unruly hair. Hair can easily be damaged by excessive application of aggressive chemical treatments and overuse of hot styling tools. Enriched with Keratin, Karitè Butter and Macadamia Oil, Keraterm is designed to perfect and maintain the straight look while protecting hair during the straightening process. It is activated by a special thermo-active technology that when applied with heat, makes hair easier and quicker to blow dry and style, while simultaneously reducing mechanical stress. It also reduces straightening time and combats humidity, frizz and static electricity. The result of this hair ritual, with its progressive lasting action after straightening, is nourished and hydrated silky soft hair.

Oro Therapy Treatments

Oro Therapy’s amazing range of shampoos and treatment masks have been made available to public, so everybody can enjoy the benefits of Micro-Active Gold, Argan Oil, Sweet Cypress Oil and Vitamin E. Argan, Ruby, Sapphire and Diamond all have their own enriching properties and benefits for different hair types. Oro Therapy’s also has a selection of nine colour masks that work wonders in replenishing colour and nourishing hair.

Styling Tools

Styling Tools is the latest addition to Fanola’s retail range. It is an extensive line of styling and finishing products designed to hold at various fix settings. One of the most neglected hair care rituals is protecting hair from damage caused by hot styling tools, and Fanola had this in mind when formulating the range with heat protection and humidity resistance. These products enable the stylist to achieve the look they desire, from strong hold to flexible, with long lasting results while keeping hair in great health.

Popular products

While Fanola is widely loved, Nutricare has been Fanola’s most loved from day one. This can be attributed to its hydrating and nourishing properties, as well as its delectable vanilla bean scent. Blondes love using Nutricare in conjunction with No Yellow Shampoo as it offers the best of both worlds; blonde toning and soft, shiny and delicious smelling hair.

New product launch

No Yellow has long been a favourite among blondes across the globe. Fanola had heard pleas from our vegan community for a No Yellow Vegan. Ask and you shall receive! The latest addition is the No Yellow Vegan formulation without the ingredient of silk. So now, every blonde can enjoy bright and brilliant blonde hair. You can find out more about No Yellow Vegan here.

Fanola No Yellow Vegan – Now In Australia

Finally Fanola No Yellow Vegan is in Australia: Fanola No Yellow VEGAN Shampoo and Mask! We love our blondes and our vegan community, so it is only fair to make sure everyone is looked after. Vegans and animal lovers, we hear you! This is not just limited to vegans, but also those of you who are concerned about having nasties in your hair. The new formula is titled “Free” because it is free of sulphates, silicones and parabens. Why is it vegan? It is also free from silk! It is also cruelty-free as Fanola does not partake in animal testing, which goes against EU regulation.

The original No Yellow Shampoo became a viral sensation and blondes love it simply for its effective toning capabilities. It is one of the highest violet pigmented formulas on the market for toning unwanted yellow tones and creating more ash and silver tones in blonde hair. It works well as a pre-toner in the basin during technical services and for at-home maintenance in between salon visits. This means blondes can refresh and rejuvenate the quality of their colour in the comfort of their own homes.

How is No Yellow Vegan different from the original No Yellow formula?

The original No Yellow formula contains the active ingredient of Hydrolysed Silk Protein, which is known for its ability to replenish hair with cysteine, one of the 4 amino acids required to produce keratin in hair. This protein penetrates the hair and improves its elasticity against breakage, also forming a protective barrier around hair. While Hydrolysed Silk Protein has amazing benefits on hair, this ingredient isn’t exactly vegan – as we all know, silk is extracted from silkworms.

Fanola No Yellow Vegan has replaced the ingredient of Hydrolysed Silk Protein with Baobab Seed Oil that has a similar effect on hair. Baobab is known as the ‘Tree of Life’ as it is high in vitamin A, D, E & F as well as Omega 3, 6 & 9 Fatty Acids. The ingredient is becoming increasingly used in haircare products because it penetrates the hair follicle to enrich it with moisture and improve elasticity in hair. It is also highly nourishing on the scalp, often likened to Argan Oil, but without weighing the hair down.

What other benefits?

Fanola has taken on board feedback regarding the original No Yellow formula with some requesting more gentle and nourishing ingredients. This is because the original No Yellow has the ingredient of sulphate, which can consequently be a bit drying on some hair types. Many Fanola users had gone about this by combining No Yellow with the Nutricare range to balance out the effect and have achieved fabulous results using this technique.

Still, Fanola got to work in the lab on a mission to create a formula that is free of these ingredients and vegan. We know that our market is becoming increasingly more conscious about what they are putting in their hair. Fanola is all about innovation and keeping up with the latest trends and technology. It took a bit of tweaking with the ingredients and trying to balance the formulation to achieve the same toning results without the added nasties.

Fanola No Yellow Vegan has no sulphates, silicones and parabens. Why is this important?

  • Sulphate is a common additive in haircare products that causes the foaming action and helps to loosen grease and sebum in hair. While it is effective in doing this, sulphate has been linked to organ toxicity, skin irritation and ecotoxicology (harmful to the environment). They also strip the hair of essential oils and colour on dyed hair. Sulphate-free shampoos can help maintain your colour for longer.
  • Silicone is one of the most prevalent ingredients in haircare that is mostly found in conditioners as they help absorb and retain moisture from the air and leave a lightweight coating on the hair to protect it from frizz. However, they started to gain a bad rap as the overuse of silicon creates a build-up and makes hair greasy. Another concern is their potential environmental impact as they do not break down easily.
  • Parabens are chemicals that have been used in beauty since the 1950s to prevent bacteria and act as a preservative. Studies on parabens have found that they mimic the activity of hormone estrogen in the body’s cells. This activity is associated with breast cancer as parabens have been found in breast tumours. Although this hasn’t been proven, prevention is better than cure.

All in all, Fanola No Yellow Vegan Shampoo is safer and gentler on the hair while still achieving the amazing toning effect of the original No Yellow formula.

How do you use it?

The procedure for using Fanola No Yellow Vegan Shampoo and Mask is the same as the original formula:

Firstly, apply No Yellow Shampoo on damp or dry hair, the first wash will open the cuticle to lift dirt and grease, and the second wash will allow the product to penetrate through hair. Massage the product throughout the length and ends of the hair. The shampoo will deposit the violet pigment into the hair to neutralise yellow reflections. Leave the product in for 5-10 minutes until desired result is achieved.

Next, apply the No Yellow Mask on dry or damp hair and leave it on for 3-5 minutes. The mask has a conditioning effect as its pH seals the cuticle to create a protective film over the hair that reflects and rejects yellow reflections. The result is soft and silky beautifully toned blonde hair.

Remember to wear protective gloves to avoid staining your fingers purple with this powerful formula.
