Why we make hair products:
We make hair products because we can make amazing things we care about, and help people look great while doing it. For us this is an opportunity to make things that are unique, and to do it our own way.
Ben & I founded BluMaan on the idea that we could make things for people like ourselves, with people like ourselves. To create our products, we work with our community of hairstyle addicts to find ways to make the most effective and interesting products possible.
When the company took off, we both took the plunge and dropped out of University. We committed ourselves to helping people like us have the sharpest, longest lasting hairstyles possible through education and amazing products. We are dedicated to living life on our own terms and creating amazing things.
Why our stuff rocks:
Our goal is to target the salon industry with quality products that feel and work differently compared to what is typically available. We start with our dedicated community of hairstyle addicts and learn from them what they feel is missing. We listen to the advice, suggestions and ideas on how to create and improve from people who are obsessed with hair.
In order to innovate, we strongly believe in getting the best of the best involved. This means we search all over the world for chemists, brewers and formulators who receive exceptional praise from hair experts. Once we find the right brewer for the right product, we share our vision and then get to work. Often, we’re at least 50 revisions deep before we feel we’re really on to something. Once a formula passes our approval, it’s tested on some of the pickiest hair enthusiasts we can find. If it receives unanimous praise - it’s a go, if not - back to the drawing board!
We believe in creating difference:
Creating difference is a lifestyle. For us it starts with from forming unique formulas designed by like minded hair-enthusiasts. For me this means, being the best version of MYSELF that no other person can emulate. Being the best that I can be and therefore, different. We want to emphasize that being unique is something to embrace rather than shy away from.
Whether we are expressing ourselves in the way we dress, building something amazing or creating something that we love, we are dedicated to doing things our own way.
Where we are going:
BluMaan was originally a childhood nickname I had, but now it’s turning into something much bigger than me. BluMaan has become a movement of people who want to stand out in the way they look, and the way they live their lives. We care about making things that amaze people, and creating things for a world that we want to live in. Whether we're creating killer hairstyles, videos, or designing our own futures through whatever we feel like taking on.
We care about creating things that are different, and are always evolving.
All of us are in this together, and BluMaan is about designing products with people like ourselves. We are addicted to having good hair, and we make the best for whether you need to look great for a date, or pitch your next idea.
How long does it actually hold?
In our tests Original Styling Meraki held for between 10 hours and 2 days, depending on the hair type. We have tested the product on a dozen knowledgeable community members and the results were that the product held for significantly longer than other popular products. That being said, keep in mind that there are tons of hair types so hold might vary depending. Some may give more or less hold than the people tested so far.
How is this better than the other products?
This product took months of work to create exactly what the online style community asked for. Original Styling Meraki is as close to the consensus of an ideal product as we could possibly make it. I mean for real… it took us 5 different teams of chemists to come up with a product we’re proud to present.
Will it work for my hair type?
Original has been tested on wavy, straight, thick, thin, coarse and fine hair. It has proven to provide all day hold for the hair types tested. If your hair type is particularly extreme, it may not have been tested yet. Although not tested, there is a chance Original won’t work on balding, thinning, or naturally very very thin hair. Standard thin hair was tested and it performed great for this hair type. While likely not being perfect for 100% of hair types, Original is more versatile than all or nearly all high hold products for hair types.
How long does it take to apply?
Thanks to it’s naturally based components, Original Styling Meraki is considerably less sticky than many other high hold products. That being said, brief stickiness may be felt when applying to thicker hair. Any sticky feeling felt upon application will disappear within 10 minutes of the product setting into the hair. It does not leave your hair feeling dry or crispy.
Will it pull on my hair? Is it sticky?
The product does not significantly pull on hair when applied. It is a high hold product so you will feel it during application, but it is more creamy than sticky. Any sticky feeling felt upon application will disappear within 10 minutes of the product setting into the hair.
Are there any harmful chemicals?
Of course not! We don’t condone harmful chemicals and therefore would never release a damaging formula. Original has many plant extracts and is a NATURALLY based product.
Does the product wash out easily and is it water soluble?
It’s not 100% water soluble, but it does come out of the hair easily when washed with shampoo. During testing the product washed out with shampoo for everyone. Some people found that it came out with just water, but some people needed shampoo. The product is water based and behaves like other water based products.
Does it appear greasy or shiny?
Original Styling Meraki has a matte finish, it is not greasy or shiny
How do I know how much I should use?
This depends entirely on your hair type. You will need to experiment as thin hair will require less and thicker hair will need more. It is a relatively strong formula that does not require more than your average strong hold product. We recommend to start with a small amount and add more as needed.
Who specifically is this for?
People who want healthy hair that holds all day with a "no-product" look finish.
Who specifically is this NOT for?
People with thinning hair, people who want a slicking style with shine, people who prefer not to have volume in their hair and dem no good haters.
