Today is Top Ten Tuesday but I’m only sharing 5 products with you. I hope you’ll forgive me but Pai-Shau is such an outstanding line with unique ingredients that no other line wanted to share in the glory of it.
After being the CEO of Moraccanoil for over 10 years Mr. Pai-Shau Zohar Paz was on a trip to Vietnam and became fascinated with an ancient bathing ritual involving tea and decided to bring it back to North America. Pai-Shau haircare was later born using a Signature Exotic Tea Complex with advanced weightless technology. The Pai-Shau line has only been in existence for less than 1 year and salons across the continent are carrying and using this beneficial line made in Canada.
There are 5 products in the line meant to enrich, hydrate, and give nutrition to your hair. Pai-Shau infuses moisture with their exclusive tea antioxidants, vitamins B, C, and E, rice amino acids and oat proteins.
This shampoo is one of the most bubbly I’ve ever used. I barely need any product to wash my hair yet it provides oodles of suds that don’t strip my hair. It’s highly concentrate and is sulfate free so it protects my color treated hair. ($26)
PAI-SHAU HYDRATING RITUAL REPLENISHING CREAM CONDITIONER is to be used in conjunction with their hair cleanser. The combination gives me a finish that is easy to comb through without weighing my hair down at all. At first it feels so lightweight that I was worried my hair would be tangly but that wasn’t the case. Just leave it on for a minute before rinsing; you won’t believe how nice your hair feels after. ($28)
This mask is so rich that I need just the smallest amount for my shoulder length hair. It’s a 5 minute mask so after washing my hair with the cleanser I apply this next, leaving it on while I’m doing other shower jobs. This mask has many jobs: anti-static, nourishing, hydrating, volume, and shine. It’s well worth the $30 cost (MSRP $43) since it will last you for so long. Like all of the haircare it contains the Signature Exotic Tea Complex. What makes this so unique is that in spite of it being a mask that you’d expect to flatten hair, it adds volume. It’s so effective that I only use it once every other week. My hair doesn’t need it more than that. I love that it comes with its own spatula to remove the product from the jar.
I probably sound like a broken record by now but all the products from Pai-Shau have the uncommon characteristics of being lightweight, nourishing, and reparative. The Style Souffle is no exception to that. This is a light hairspray that you can use it on wet or dry hair. Use it on wet hair by working it through. Later use it on dry hair as a spray to help hold your hair in place. This is especially good for women who style their hair into a real style. Your hair will be soft and supple but you’ll have control and manageability.
PAI-SHAU ENHANCE RITUAL BIPHASIC INFUSION is the star of the show. This is the first product developed in the line and is unlike anything I’ve ever tried before.
Just like a bi-phase eye makeup remover, you have to shake this to activate the ingredients. The contents need to be blended and once they are it’s like releasing a genie from the bottle to work her special skills on your hair. This redefines the word “weightless”. At first when you put it on your hand to distribute it through your tresses, it feels a little sticky. But that feeling is gone before you know it and your hair doesn’t even feel like you’ve added anything to it. But the magic has begun and your hair will be shinier, more manageable, vital, smooth, and resistant to frizz and breakage. This is the best product in the line and the reason I keep using it.
Pai-Shau has some wonderful attributes like being free of gluten, parabens, sulfates, phosphates, and no added sodium chloride (the killer of a keratin treatment). It’s also cruelty free, vegan friendly, and residue free. The only problem I have with the line is the fragrance since it’s on the strong side. It took me a while to get used to the scent but I’ve read how others are mesmerized by it. I notice the fragrance for a few hours after I wash my hair but by mid-afternoon I’ve forgotten about it. Plus I like the results so much that I’m willing to ignore my nose.
If you are like I am you love trying new brands of haircare to see the difference it can make in the way your hair looks. Pai-Shau is the next brand to put on your list to try. I think you’ll be surprised like I was. — Marcia
