O2 Flow Electronic Face Mask - First Hand Report!

The new O2 Flow Electronic Face Mask / True HEPA + Carbon Filter - 4 Stage HEPA H-13 Carbon Filtration we are offering on PureSpaDirect.com have been selling like mad... so I guess I got FOMO and ordered one for myself.

The box is nice looking and thick - it was like unboxing a new iPhone... anticipation was high!  Inside I found a very nicely made unit which came with the mask, a filter, a charger, soft rubbery ear straps a soft bag, instructions and 2 front plates... 1 white and 1 blue. I liked the white plate better and went with that, but they are easy to swap... held on by magnets.

I attached the ear straps, put the filter in and then the front cover on. I plugged in the charger and the mask has a nice led that lights up to indicate it is charging. Once charged, it was testing time!

It is a mixed review... honestly, a regular disposable or washable mask is more comfortable. However, we all know those are hot and restrict your breathing a bit.  That is where this mask shines... the positive pressure airflow makes breathing nice AND cooling. The turbine is very quiet... like a computer fan, but think of it more like quiet white noise... I like it!

I feel this mask is perfect for when you are actually performing services, like lash extensions, lash tinting, facials, massage, waxing, etc.  You want to be cool and breath easy and this mask really helps.  For every day use I think a regular mask is better.

About the fit... for a giant headed man like me, I have to wear it fairly tight to get a good seal - I think it would fit a more petite face better, but it still works for me. 

I'm glad I got it, but at least for me, it is a supplement to my "normal" mask.  Which mask do I wear the rest of the time?  My favorite is PureSpaDirect.com's Soft and Stretchy Cloth Ear Loop Face Masks - 2 Ply Comfortable Antibacterial Knitted Fabric - Rewashable up to 31X / 5 Black Masks per Pack

More Detail On the O2 Flow Masks:

O2 Flow Electronic MaskThe O2 Flow Electric Face Mask brings the discerning user next level air purification while reducing moisture build-up inside. Along with the soft silicone construction, adjustable ear loops, and included Velcro band, it's designed to stay comfortable, even when worn for extended periods of time. The unique design makes the O2 Flow versatile enough for a variety of situations. Nail technicians can protect themselves from toxins and fumes. Construction workers could use it to avoid dust and harmful particles.

The two-speed fan allows you to breathe normally, even when exercising. Combining aerodynamic principles and the design of a 3-dimensional purification air duct, the diffused air intake has a sufficient air intake volume to provide up to six times the fresh air required for normal breathing every hour. The mask and the soft adjustable ear loops can be sterilized for reuse.

The active exhaust valve is based on aerodynamic principles. When you exhale, air pressure is generated internally. When the atmospheric pressure inside the mask is greater than the external atmospheric pressure, the exhaust valve is automatically opened. Because the exhaled exhaust gas is discharged from the lower exhaust valve, the mask can fit closer to the face without worrying about condensation. The continuous air flow also helps prevent bacteria from breeding inside your mask.

The silicone ear band can be adjusted and combined with the Velcro protection belt to fit the mask close to your face, ensuring a snug fit that won't fall off. The Velcro and ear bands can also be removed at any time, and you can choose how you want to wear them.

Improve Your Hair Color Services with an Infrared Color Processor!

One of the #1 things people complained about during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic was being unable to get their hair colored. It was commented on the internet, made into memes, and more.

Now that salons are open again, we are hearing that clients are FLOCKING in to get color services. With salons working on more limited capacity than before, customers may be going to any salon they can get an appointment at. 

What can you offer your clients in order to maintain their business? How about the best - and fastest - color services around?

Investing in an Infrared Color Processor can help you achieve that goal!

Our favorite is the LUMASHINE Infrared Color Hair Processor. Available in either a stand-alone or wall-mounted unit, this processor features an ozone function that helps bond dyes and molecules to hair to help protect and condition hair by “locking in” dye for a more vibrant long-lasting color. Infrared technology penetrates hair follicles and dries hair from the inside out. Hair is dried faster and with less damage, leaving it smooth and manageable. 

Details:
  • Variable temperature settings
  • 30-min timer
  • Ozone, infrared, and fan may be operated simultaneously or individually
  • Available on roller base or wall-mount arm
ADVANCE FAR-INFRARED HEAT TECHNOLOGY:
Different from Ultra Violet’s (UV) destructive energy, far-infrared heat is low-intensity and not damaging to color treatments. Far-infrared heat technology penetrates the cortex of the hair, applying heat from the inside out. Infrared technology heats the hair gently, evenly, and helps maintain hair’s natural moisture balance to prevent over-drying for vibrant lasting shine, faster treatment penetration, and better color retention.

PROTECTS THE HAIR:
Corrosive alkalizing and oxidizing agents forcefully peels hair cuticles open from the outside. This approach damages the natural integrity of the hair and may irreparably destroy the hair’s natural ability to “hold” color. This leads to accelerated color-fading, unpredictability, and less consistency. Infrared heat technology mimics the organic heat energy found in nature and applies it gently, uniformly, and efficiently without the use of aggressive man-made chemicals.

INCREASE COLOR PREDICTABILITY:
Using an infrared heat source to progressively apply heat results inconsistent absorption and retention that produces more vibrant and predictable results. And because the hair cuticle is opened from the inside out, it naturally returns to equilibrium state during the cool-down period. And without harsh chemical residue, the color is better locked-in; creating a more intense shine and constant shade vibrancy.

IMPROVING YOUR BOTTOM LINE:
Applying far-infrared heat technology, hair cuticles are better to open hair cuticles, color, and perm treatment times can be dramatically reduced by 40-50% with most color lines and even with most grey clients. This means a higher chair-turnover rate and less real estate dedicated to clients sitting and waiting for treatments to process.
