Important Information About Spiralicious Styling Gel

Tue, 07/12/2016 - 09:51 -- Jess

Dear Jessicurl Customers,

In early February of this year we introduced a new formulation of Spiralicious using Optiphen rather than Germall as the preservative. Although we had tested the new formulation extensively prior to its release, we are receiving some reports of the product turning color and separating. At this point it is not clear if the issue affects all Spiralicious made with Optiphen or just some of the batches, but out of an abundance of caution we have decided to go back to the original formulation until we understand the issues and are confident the new formulation will reliably perform the way we expect it to. Just for reference, Optiphen contains Benzoic Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid, and Phenoxyethanol, and Germall contains Diazolidinyl Urea, and Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate.

We have contacted all of our customers who have ordered directly from us, whether on the web or from a salon, but know that many of you buy from your stylist or beauty supply store, so we want to make sure the message gets to you as well. 

If you have bought Spiralicious between February 1, 2016 and May 31, 2016 with batch codes between 8436 and 8961, we would like to replace it for you free of charge. Alternatively, you can look at the last section of the ingredients list and if it contains Phenoxyethanol, it is the Optiphen version. Any product with batch codes lower or higher than those listed, or which don’t contain Phenoxyethanol, are the original Germall formulation and should be fine.

New Featured Charity: A Little Help

Fri, 05/27/2016 - 14:44 -- Jess

In January Jessicurl launched our new Giving Program. Over the years we’ve done what we could to support charities and non-profits, usually through donating products to auctions and the like. Starting in 2016 we’re making charitable giving a part of our business model and I couldn’t be more excited.

Each quarter we donate to a different charity or non-profit, and are very much interested in hearing from YOU about who you would like to see us support. Go to our Giving Program page and use the submission form to let us know what is important to you. 

A Little Help

For the second quarter of 2016 I'm please to support A Little Help, based in Colorado. This orgnization was suggested by a Jessicurl customer and I'm thrilled to be supporting causes that matter to you! :) 

A Little Help began in 2005 when a group of retirees recognized the desire of many seniors to stay in their own homes and contribute to their respective communities. These neighbors based their model on the national village movement, where neighbors coordinate and deliver essential services within their community to allow elders to remain in their homes. In 2007, A Little Help (formerly Washington Park Cares) incorporated as a 501(c)(3) with the mission of providing older adults with non-medical services essential to maintaining active, productive lives in their own homes within community.

What made you go into the hair business?

My mother was a hairstylist, so I was able to see firsthand the power of beauty. I would read her old cosmotology books over and over, and I even got my hands on a doll head once or twice! I have always felt that I was meant to do hair.

If you specialize in curly hair, what made you adopt that focus?

Introducing The Jessicurl Giving Program

Mon, 01/18/2016 - 13:40 -- Jess

I’m thrilled to announce the launch of our new Giving Program. Over the years we’ve done what we could to support charities and non-profits, usually through donating products to auctions and the like. Starting in 2016 we’re making charitable giving a part of our business model and I couldn’t be more excited.

Each quarter we will donate to a different charity or non-profit, and are very much interested in hearing from YOU about who you would like to see us support. As you you find on the Giving Program page, there is a submission form you can use to let us know. All submissions will be considered and each quarter we will donate to a new organization.

For the first quarter of 2016 I’m so happy to be giving to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. 

The kids whom St. Jude treats are suffering from life-threatening childhood illnesses such as cancer and sickle cell disease, and many of the treatment protocols require care that can last for years. For example, the average cost for treating acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common form of childhood cancer, is more than $485,000 over a two to three year treatment plan.

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. While the hospital accepts insurance, many services provided by St. Jude have never been covered by insurance, and will not be in the future. In fact, only 12% of the money to operate the hospital comes from insurance recoveries and 10% comes from grants.

Deep Treatment Now Comes With A Pump!

Mon, 01/04/2016 - 10:43 -- Jess

Happy New Year, Curlies! 

Oh boy oh boy oh boy, do I have good news for you!!! One of the most common bits of feedback we get from you is that while you LOVE the Deep Conditioning Treatment, you do NOT love that it can be hard to get out of the bottle. 

Those days are over, my friend. Your beloved DT now comes with a handy pump. (hyperlink to DT page on site where they can see it with the pump)  We’ve had many people test it and the response was a resounding, “DO IT!” :) 

We literally searched the globe for something that would work with the thickness of the DT and finally found it in Italy. No joke, we actually found the pump at a trade show in Italy and are importing them specifically for use with DT. So if you felt like we just weren’t listening to you these last few years, please know we were fervently working on it behind the scenes. :) 

We hope this makes your hair routine easier. :) Happy New Year and have a curly day!

New Accessories at Jessicurl.com!

Tue, 11/03/2015 - 07:34 -- Jess

Hey Curlies! 

We have some new accessories in our online store that I want to make sure you know about. :) 

The first is the Solano Universal Diffuser.

Sometimes you leave your diffuser at a hotel or at a friend’s house but don’t want to buy a whole new hair dryer/diffuser combo. Buying a diffuser by itself can be tricky as they don’t always fit on every hair dryer. I’ve tried this Solano Universal Diffuser on a variety of hair dryers and so far it has fit on all of them. :) 

We’re also excited to be carrying a full selection of Curlformers, a fun way to change up your curls when you feel like you want something a little different. :)

They don’t use heat or chemicals so it’s a gentle, temporary way to get a different look. You’ll want to make sure you get the right set for your hair length, and also watch the accompanying video tutorial to get the hang of it. I suggest using them with our Spiralicious Styling Gel to hold the style once you achieve it. :) There are a variety of styles you can achieve, from making waves tighter, or tigher curls looser. Check out the Curlformers gallery for ideas.
