Hair Care

By Kimberly McDonald


There are two new boys of summer. Joel Warren and Edward Tricomi haven’t been resting on their laurels since the release of their revolutionary three step Pure Strength System ( – Sign O’ The Trine). “The Cabana Collection is created for our clients who are looking to maintain perfect health and color while enjoying the benefits of styling their hair any way they want,” says colorist and salon owner Joel Warren of Warren-Tricomi.

Say good-bye to styling products that weigh your hair down or dull the shine. Cabana’s super-secret ingredient, Betaine, is an amino acid derivative that protects and strengthens the hair shaft. Combined with other health-promoing ingredients such as comfrey, aloe, lavender and sea algae, these products work double duty. Not only do they provide styling assistance but they are constantly at work nourishing and repairing the hair. As added summer benefits, the products help protect and shield your hair from sun, salt water, chlorine. Like a little invisible cabana for your beloved locks.

The Hair Shield is a must-have for everyone. The oil-free spray-on formula lets you mist botanicals, Betaine, and SPF protection directly on to wet or dry hair. The nourishing formula should be a staple hair care product for every hair type, year round. It’s just that simple.

The collection also includes two conditioners, the light weight Leave-In Conditioner and intense Daily Hair Masque. The masque provides the same organic shield as the other Cabana products but gives a more intense hydration for hair that is damaged, course or just in need of moisture – all without weighing down the hair. The Daily Hair Masque can also be used periodically as a deep conditioner, if you’re lucky enough not to have damaged your hair at some point in the styling process.

The other products in the line are all for styling purposes. There is a Hair Polish that smoothes away frizzies while adding the organic protective shield you’ll find in all of the Cabana products. To deal with hair that is naturally more frizzy, or perhaps has had more damage from color, texturizing treatments, etc., the guys are introducing their Calming Serum. Again, all of the benefits of a powerful (but not heavy) anti-frizz product with the added benefits of the Betaine-rich, organic protective shield.

Perhaps the most entertaining product is the Spike Glue. This lightweight gel allows you to mold and configure your hair into virtually any style. Get creative! It isn’t sticky so you won’t feel like you’re going to end up with cotton-candy like fingers. And, once again, the product comes the benefits of the organic protective shield. It takes a bit of practice to get used to the amount of hold you can get from just a small amount – you would be surprised.

Last but certainly not least and a personal favorite in the Cabana styling line is the Shape, Shine & Shield. The pomade formula allows you to get hold, shine, protection and nourishment to your hair in one tube. Unlike other products from other lines that claim to make hair shiny but ends up weighing it down with oil, this product really plays the light off of your hair giving it amazing shine. Nourishment, protection, hold, and real shine all in the same package – what more can you ask from a hair product?

Like any good cabana boys, these two have seen to your every need – with regard to your hair! Find out how great it feels to have your tresses pampered daily with the Cabana Collection, now available online at and Warren-Tricomi salons. You can also order by calling 1.800.457.2292.
