REDAVID Blooms at Stanley Park

Local entrepreneur and hair stylist Leonardo Redavid launched his signature Orchid Oil hair care line against the majestic backdrop of Stanley Park Pavilion, fittingly surrounded by white dreamy orchids. The location was no accident, in fact, nine years ago Leonardo found inspiration for the flora essences and aromas within Stanley Park as the baseline for all the REDAVID products.

Meeting Leonardo his passion for hair is immediately evident, as he is apt to say “One day… just like you, I woke up and LOVED hair. From that day, my fundamental belief is that any hairdresser can be more than their license. You just need 3 things: the desire to find your inner artist, the hunger to never stop learning, and products that allow you to create any look, on any client… and pay on the promise that their hair will be healthier and more beautiful than when they sat in the chair.”

Born in Italy, he set up his first salon in 1985 and it took only a few years to become one of Canada’s most celebrated stylist and platform artist. However, it is his natural charisma, endless energy and infectious laugh that really captivate his audience and clientele, I cannot help but ask him what he would be doing if he was not doing hair, he tells me “Motivational speaking. I’ve always liked making people happy. It’s the best way to go through life!”

Leo explains that this line began with his love of orchids. He had always wondered what made them such a long-lasting flower, but also why the petals were so velvety and shiny – the answer is the rich oil found inside the bloom.

Leo asked his chemist to explore whether the oil’s benefits could be transferred to hair via a hair care product, and his line was born. Leo explains “One of the best parts about Orchid Oil extract is its sustainability. Being a regenerative plant that’s found on every continent except Antarctica, it means that we will be able to enjoy the orchids’ beauty and benefits for years and years to come!”

The Orchid Oil Shampoo and Conditioner contain Dynagen-R protein – the most molecularly similar protein to hair in the world which was specially formulated for this local line. Botanical extracts rich in minerals, vitamins and essential fatty acids paired with the orchid oil leaves hair fuller, detangled and helps to restore moisture balance to the hair, in turn making it stronger.

The new line prominently features an Orchid Oil Treatment serum; a lightweight, non-greasy, lightly scented oil suitable for all hair types that rinses out easily leaving no residue. The orchid oil seals the hair shaft structure and fills in any gaps, leaving the hair with unbelievable shine.  It can be used on wet hair before a blowout, or on dry hair, and tames any stray hairs effortlessly.
