Matrix Celebrity Hairstylist George Papanikolas shows us how he combines Matrix Bond Ultim8 Protecting System with his signature technique of Glowlights to give Emily Bennett, Matrix Global Marketing Manager, fabulous healthy and brighter locks!
How did the Bond Ultim8 system makes hair feel after Glowlights? “My hair was left feeling even healthier than before the Bond Ultim8 service. It was overall more supple, softer, and even shinier than before. I was pleasantly surprised to find that even my lightened pieces looked as though they had become more fortified,” says Emily. And she adds: “I use Bond Ultim8 Step 3 once a week while I am in the shower, before shampooing or conditioning. I apply the product from root to tip and leave on for 10 minutes. Then I shampoo and condition as usual.”
Emily was really thrilled with the outcome: “I feel like I finally have my dream hair color, without compromising the health of my previously un-colored hair. I’m hooked!”
Matrix Celebrity Hairstylist George Papanikolas loves combining the Bond Ultim8 system with his signature Glowlights technique. “The condition of the hair feels the same after lightening, plus I don’t have to reformulate or add extra processing time,” says George. “It doesn’t slow down the processing and you don’t need to adjust the peroxide volume. The texture also stays the same which is important with freehand Balayage.”
How can one get Emily’s look? “I did a combination of free hand Balayage framing her face and natural with Light Master, 40 volume and Bond Ultim8. I let that process. Then once it’s dry, I back combed large horizontal slices framing the face, natural part and end to connect the first step. This gives a soft root highlight gradually getting stronger and bolder at the mids and ends,” says George.
