' Killerstrands Mission'


This is hair Education + Color formulating technology taken to a whole new level. Artisan materials, expert craftsmanship in our own line of products that creates an experience unlike anything else.  With a uniquely designed product line combined with impressive performance due to KC’s firm belief in lipids - in Conditioners, Hair Color & all aspects of products . . . Killerstrands Hair Care Line should become completely irresistible to you, as well.

11 Years ago I set out to educate the women of our country in everything I had learned and experienced as a Board Certified Colorist/Stylist & Cosmetic Chemist - via my Blog.  I was lucky enough to be trained by the best in the Hair world and had a wonderful work ethic from my very successful father. Add  those 2 factors together = the result was:.... a successful career in hair on the path to the moon ! Then one day after plagued with knee & bone issues in my right leg for years, the diagnosis of a very rare bone cancer - put an end to my beloved career.

To keep myself busy and to leave a little tiny legacy where I helped out people I didn't know so they could benefit from the education I had received but could no longer use - Killerstrands was born.
There is not a reason in the world that each and everyone of you should not have access to the ultimate education & products that will arm you with the tools needed to create healthy - awesome professional looking hair. With the education I supply you have what you need to become a professional Stylist in the comfort of your own home, Salon or Business. I call it...a Crib Colorist and I challenge each and every one of you to set that path for yourself : Become the BEST CRIB COLORIST you can become.

  I have acquired the name "KC" (Killer Chemist) from my loyal supporters but my name is Dakota Davison Ellis, I am both a Board certified California Licensed Hair Stylists/Colorist  (whew!!!) !  I also am a Cosmetic chemist and design my own products when I can't find what I feel is necessary to color and care for hair in the best way possible  I make or create it myself.. I search far and wide for unique products that will benefit you in ways they were not made to be used....because I think outside of the box. When I create products I create them for one reason only............to help you with your hair. I do not have any products priced out-of-this-world and claim false hopes. I feel the problem with the products already in existence is: the companies that produced them are only looking at making money.....they simply don't seem to care about the health of the hair. To me, there is nothing more important than the HEALTH OF THE HAIR STRANDS.

   I am a One-of-A-Kind type of Hair Czar ;)))) !! I studied Cosmetic Chemistry with a brilliant well known Chemist  (who is no longer with us) and Hair Color with the "Queen-of-Hair-Color" (Annie Humphries/Lucie Doughty) - so I feel having that unique fortune of being in the right place at the right time  TWICE ! ! !...........I honestly feel that those 2 facts ALONE make it MANDATORY for me to GIVE-BACK and teach all of you what was taught to me. 

What good is education, if it is not handed down? and unfortunately that is not how the hair business works. I feel I have cracked the code and have finally shaken up the system enough so that people can see that by sharing our knowledge - does not "leak your secrets".......when IN-FACT - it opens up the channels of learning for people to share with each other new ideas on how to reach even further goals. I have a deep desire to give back and the only way I could see to do that ........was ....... by sharing my knowledge in a subject, so many of you want to learn HAIR & HAIR COLOR . .

As I began writing the Blog, people from all over the country began writing me and 'begging' for help with how to do their hair color correctly and how to fix their damaged hair. . . . their hair was destroyed, colored awfully, how could they remove their old miserable color, start over with A PROPER FORMULA ?  They had no competent Hair Salon in their small rural remote town, and on and on. I literally began writing one persons order down in a small notebook ( which I still have !) at a time, figuring out what they need and sending it to them....... 1 person at a time.I started the entire business that way I didn't borrow a penny, I simply grew it from you placing orders one order at a time.!

I'm quite proud of that beginning, I didn't get into debt, by borrowing money, just built it all from scratch from orders from you all!  I would help a few and they would send their friends and the whole BLOG began to snowball....never in a million years did I plan on having a store.
I truly think this whole process has kept me alive many years past when I was was supposed to be on earth. I truly just try to feed off of all of your energy to keep me going, which has flabbergasted my doctors.....But I feel they know a lot less then they think they do!

The answers to all of your questions are in the Blog I have spent 9 years writing that so that you could look up any question you may have, as a matter of fact if I have not written a post regarding a subject I may receive a question about, I turn that question into a Post on the Blog.........so the answers are all there. Just plug the key words to your question into the SEARCH BAR at the top and the answers will pop up. Google runs my Blog so the Search factor runs right on point !
