This month Austinites can take advantage of a free swap offer from Verb Products – a professional line of affordable hair care products free of sulfates, parabens and gluten – and the award-winning Birds Barbershop.
Now through April 30th, Birds Barbershop customers can trade in their drugstore shampoo and conditioner for a complimentary set of Verb Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner, retailing for $12 each. This offer is available to patrons receiving a haircut at any of Birds Barbershop’s five convenient locations throughout Central Austin: 1107 East 6th Street, 1902 S. Congress, 2110 S. Lamar and 41st / Red River and 6900 Burnet Road.
The Verb Hydrating Shampoo is a color-safe formula that keeps valuable highlights 25 percent longer. Sulfate, paraben and gluten free, this shampoo is infused with quinoa protein, a newly-available grain extract with sealing properties to protect hair from the damage caused by hair dryers, flat irons and the sun. Dries soft, smooth and tangle-free.
The deeply enriching and restorative Verb Hydrating Conditioner is built for tresses that have been color-processed, exposed to the elements or are just plain dried out. Keratin is the driving ingredient in the formula, working with quinoa and a complex blend of 18 other proteins to shield the hair shaft from damage caused by hair dryers, flat irons and the sun. Replenishes moisture, leaving hair soft, smooth and detangles, and washes away without feeling weighed down.
Everything in the Verb product line is water-based, vitamin-enriched and contains a natural UV protectant tested in the Texas heat. Bad stuff-free with a modern barely-there scent, the products leave a clean, crisp finish that won’t linger. Verb is made in the United States in a solar-powered lab and created without animal testing. All canisters are recyclable, although some people may find the packaging hard to throw away.
Verb Products – a line of affordable, professional hair products – is unveiling three new offerings to their high-quality line free of harmful sulfates, parabens and gluten.
Verb Ghost Oil is a weightless blend of argan and moringa oils. It’s a vanishing daily restorative that revitalizes and repairs the hair shaft to smooth frizz and promote radiant shine for all hair types. Directions: Pump 2-3 drops in palm and apply evenly through hair. Apply to damp hair for extra heatstyling protections or to dry hair for smoothing shine. $14.00 retail.
Verb Leave-In Mist is the essential step between washing and styling, and a must-have for adults and kids with unruly hair. The leave-in conditioner moisturizes, detangles, nourishes and smoothes hair, tames frizz, repairs ends, adds shine, prevents breakage, enhances elasticity and protects from heat prep styling. Directions: Spray throughout towel dried hair after using Verb Shampoo and Conditioner. Comb hair and style as usual. $12.00 retail.
Verb Volume Spray amplifies fine hair for a full flexible finish. The weightless formula is designed to pump up any style while leaving the hair soft and touchable with an all-day volumized hold. Directions: Apply liberally to towel-dried hair, working from roots to ends. Style as usual. $14.00 retail.

“When we went looking for an affordable, stylish and high-quality line to carry in our shops, we simply couldn’t find one,” said Verb Products and Birds Barbershop Co-Founder Jayson Rapaport. “After doing the legwork, we realized that not only is it possible to create professional quality at an affordable price, but also it is long overdue.”
Back in 2010, using their 100+ employees in their five salons as their lab, Rapaport and co-founder Michael Portman, applied their award-winning formula – affordable, straightforward and salon-quality– to hair products. The result is a line that stands toe-to-toe with luxury and prestige brands that are twice and triple the price.
The Verb line also includes Hydrating Shampoo and Hydrating Conditioner, Sculpting Clay and Forming Fiber for shorter styles and Styling Cream and Finishing Polish for longer, heat-treated hair. Everything in the Verb product line is water-based, vitamin-enriched and contains a natural UV protectant tested in the Texas heat. Bad stuff-free with a modern barely-there scent, the products leave a clean, crisp finish that won’t linger. Verb is made in the United States and created without animal testing. All canisters are recyclable, although some people may find the packaging hard to throw away.
