Happy Black History Month from Farouk Systems Inc.!

Happy Black History Month from Farouk Systems Inc.!

Before Black History Month comes to an end, one of our very own platform educators and Master Stylist, Kewonia Grimes has provided an easy step by step tutorial on how to properly use the CHI Deep Brilliance and CHI Bond + Seal Lightening System when styling a client.

 CHI Bond + Seal Lightening System

Professional Tutorial

Step One: Start off by using the CHI Bond & Seal Treatment before adding any chemical to the hair to lower the pH level and ensure the hair cuticles are closed. Following after that, apply the Deep Brilliance Silk Conditioning Relaxer.

Step Two: Use the Deep Brilliance Protein Masque and Deep Brilliance Leave In Treatment together once the relaxer has been put in your client’s hair. Stay by the washing bowl and leave the relaxer in their hair for 15 minutes. Once 15 minutes has gone by, thoroughly rinse and dry their hair then proceed with the third step.

Step Three: Next, use the CHI Bleach & Shine once the hair is thoroughly dry. We recommend using the CHI Color Generator 10 Volume or the CHI Color Generator 20 Volume because they are great for maintaining the integrity of the hair.

Step Four: Apply the CHI Bleach and Shine to your client’s hair to supply moisture because it is formulated with hemp oil and aloe vera. These two ingredients are good for providing conditioning, protection, moisture and essential nutrients to the hair.

Step Five: Then, you will apply the CHI Bond & Seal Treatment to the hair to act as a natural bonder which is good for protecting and strengthening the bonds before, during and after the color and/or lightening service.

Step Six: Lastly, be sure to use the CHI Bond & Seal Treatment to finalize this service because it helps lower the pH level to close the hair’s cuticle.

Farouk Systems Loses a Great Friend- Andy Lazzari

Farouk Systems Loses a Great Friend- Andy Lazzari

The beauty industry recently lost a dear friend, Andy Lazarri. Andy was part of a team of great colorists, barbers and stylists that included Sam Lapin (the Father of Color) and Dr. Farouk Shami. They worked together for both Roffler and Framesi. Andy also won “Stylist of the Year” from the Association Master Barber Beauty America (AMBB) as well as competing in the National USA Championship in Men’s Styling. He went on to become a distributor for the Pennsylvania area as well as a successful salon owner of Hairtique. Working for years with Dr. Farouk Shami, Andy was one of the first to sell Farouk Systems’ Sunglitz Lightening System in Pennsylvania back in 1986 when Dr. Farouk Shami formed the company.

Andy Lazarri was instrumental in creating and molding the beauty industry in Southwestern Pennsylvania and West Virginia – in an era when beauty began to evolve into a brand-new thrilling industry.

His work over the course of decades created excitement and energy that fueled the growth of professional beauty. Whether he was calling on salon owners, managing talent on stage at fashion shows and conventions, winning a World Championship or working to solve problems in the conference room, Andy was always involved and dedicated to excellence in our incredible beauty industry.

Andy taught fellow stylists and co-workers that we should love what we’re doing and really listen to each other. He had a remarkable way of making us feel loved and always made us smile.

Andy is survived by his wife Pat.

Farouk Systems, Inc. Sustains Growth and Global  Expansion in 2020

Farouk Systems, Inc. Sustains Growth and Global Expansion in 2020

Despite COVID-19, FSI withstood a pandemic by focusing on company strengths to create new products, haircare, and tools – all while giving back


Houston, TX. – Farouk Systems, Inc. (FSI), a trusted company for the latest beauty and personal care products for both men and women, experienced a banner year in 2020 with a 30% increase in sales due to opening several new divisions. These included BioSilk® Health + Beauty, CHI Footwear and the purchase of Exonda Salon Tools GmbH. Despite COVID-19, Founder and Chairman Dr. Farouk Shami re-invented the company’s potential by using its many strengths and talents to carry FSI through 2020 in records ways.

When COVID-19 hit our shores, Dr. Shami, along with Dr. Roy Joseph, Farouk Systems’ Vice President of Research and Development, worked on suppling Americans with products to protect themselves against the virus. The result led to the formation of a new division called BioSilk® Health + Beauty which started with hand sanitizer and then expanded to produce a full line of anti-bacterial products with organic Aloe for the hands, body and hair. Aloe based hand sanitizers were created under the CHI® Haircare brand name as well. This organic aloe is grown on FSI’s own farmland. In fact, the Texas Department of Agriculture certified the company’s CHI® Natural Gardens as Organic for Aloe Vera in 2020.

Once the hand sanitizer was completed and approved, the company donated millions of dollars of it to the cities, first responders, medical personnel and citizens of Texas. To ensure quality and protection, they were also was nursed approved and the company initiated donations of their anti-bacterial products to nurses across the country. FSI did not stop there but continued throughout 2020 with a mission of giving back. They offered CHI® and BioSilk® products to women’s homeless shelters, the elderly, churches, schools, food banks, community programs and youth organizations. Donations toppled over $15 Million for the year.


As the pandemic grew, FSI went into yet another area of protection by creating CHI® Life. This line included the launches of a UV Light Lamp and Handheld UV Light Wand as well as an Automatic Dispenser for Hand Sanitizer and Soap.

As Farouk Systems completed its goal of creating and manufacturing a full set of anti-bacterial products and devices, they still expanded their beauty offerings and innovations as normal. This resulted in:

  • Purchasing Exonda Salon Tools GmbH, a leading international supplier of high-quality hairdressing tools that are “Made in Germany” to expand their hair tool offerings. A recent successful launch included the CHI Lava 2.0 at the end of 2020
  • Securing a collaboration with Mattel to launch the CHI x Barbie Haircare line found exclusively at ULTA Beauty and Khols
  • CHI & LG Create 1st Hair Color Factory in the world called The ColorMaster to instantly create over 30,000 formulations & dispense perfectly mixed hair color in under 2 minutes!
  • Launching the Beyond Glow Botanical Skincare with their partners LG Household and Health Care, Ltd.
  • Creating the company’s own Clean Beauty Campaign
  • Launching ProCHI.com, a platform for professional hairdressers as well as digital education and webinars totaling over 5,142 classes
  • Expanding into the world of fashion by creating a line of graphene and anti-bacterial sneakers for their CHI® Footwear division. The line encompasses both ceramic and graphene technology, helps to kill bacteria, reduce odor and provide comfort and protection while energizing your feet.

In addition, FSI’s tools and styling products secured multiple beauty awards from Allure, SELF, and Refinery29 to name a few plus achieving viral status on TikTok with their CHI® Spin N Curl. They also launched items like the CHI® Lava 2.0, CHI® Volumizer 4-in-1 Blowout Brush, CHI® Spin N Curl Pro, CHI® Spin N Curl Compact, CHI® Aromatherapy Line, CHI® Hemp Bleach Bond & Seal and BioSilk® Tahitian Vanilla.

After an amazing 2020, what is next in 2021?

More than ever, Farouk Systems will demonstrate its creative geniuses by launching a series of new hair color products like CHI® Chroma Paint. New launches will also include CHI® Vibes for the young at heart, CHI® Man, new CHI® tools utilizing German engineering and BioSilk® Health + Beauty line extensions. Plus, stay tuned as Dr. Shami begins work on an Organic Aloe vitamin concentrate for an overall, healthier body.

According to Dr. Farouk Shami, “Without a doubt, Farouk Systems, Inc. will surpass all expectations in the years to come. Our staff, chemists, sales and marketing will deliver whatever the need or want is.”
