Belgenza's Alan Eschenberg Shares the Scoop on New Products!
It’s been a bit too long since I had a chance to talk to Alan Eschenberg of Belegenza , the fabulous haircare line (and now includes skincare too!) that’s based on aloe (not water) and is phalate, sulfate,paraben, and petroleum-free. I may have missed something in that list of things that are NOT included in that list — and I am sure I will get a note or IM from Alan about it but he’s thorough and so am I- particularly about this line. It’s the line I keep returning to because it’s amazing and delivers amazing results and give you glorious hair.
We had a chance to chat a while back and this is part 2 and has LOTS more information itn it.
Here’s what’s new that you need to know about that Alan mentions in the podcast
For those seeking frizz-free hair or less curl or no curl, there’s Simply Straight Progressive Straightener .
It is a unique food-grade fusion that straightens curl and frizz over time the more you use it. Excellent for controlling multi-textured curl patterns. This is a natural alternative to harsh chemical relaxers and straighteners.
A gentle straightening process which smoothes the curl structure and takes up to 30 applications to get full results. It is very gentle and effective. Remember that your new growth keeps coming, so once desired straightening is achieved on mid-shaft continue to apply to new growth and/or problem areas.
Safe for all hair types and is compatible with relaxers, keratin treatments and is safe for children. On excessively curly long hair, use as a dressing when braiding and after several uses, see softness and control without having used chemicals. It is lye-free, sodium and calcium hydroxide-free, formaldehyde-free and is a healthy safe alternative for any hair type — particularly fragile damaged hair.
This product really does work. I know– I used it before I had a Keratin treatment. Now I know that I can use it still and get better results.
Spotlight Shine is for those who want a bit more shine to their hair san oily feel, heaviness and just get glossy shiny locks.
this very unique product creates shine from the inside out-instantly. This non-greasy, non-sticky and alcohol-free food-grade fusion moisturizes, eliminates flyaways, resists dirt and keeps hair clean ( sounds too good to be true. Actually it’s very true and you should buy it just to find out that you have been wasting money on products that don’t do your hair any favors!) . It softens, penetrates and protects hair (and skin) with no residue. It adds strength, creates a heat barrier and stops breakage. Can be used as a styling aid, finishing product or a specialized conditioning treatment to revive damaged hair.
How to: Distribute a few drops on wet or dry hair before flat ironing, blow drying and curling for protection. To use as a specialized treatment on dry hair, generously message into split ends, dry scalp, or fine hair; cover with plastic cap and use medium heat for 15 minutes or leave overnight. Then shampoo with IlLustrious and condition with RoMANce or DraMatic Volumizing Conditioner.
When heat styling the product will “smoke” if you exceed 420º F. This is just a warning sign to take it easy with the heat for the safety of the hair. Products that contain silicone derivatives will not give that indication which increases the chances of you damaging/burning the hair.
Want to know what’s on my list? It’s Spotlight Shine– because I need it because of LA’s beachy humidity and I want my hair to be rocking great.
Other products Alan mentioned are the new skincare products!! I wondered if he would go in that direction and he did. So far there are only 2 products but given that aloe’s the base ingredient, it’s going to be awesome.
