Your stylist makes your hair looks amazing, and you want it to look its best after you leave the hair salon. Here are some tips from our professional hairstylists to help keep your hair looking gorgeous between appointments.
Wear your hair at any length at any age.
It's a myth that you must cut your hair short when you get older. Your hair stylist will help you determine a style that compliments the shape of your face.
Take care of your hair while sleeping.
Use a silk pillowcase and put your hair in a loose top knot or braid long hair. Sleeping can tangle your hair which leads to breaking your hair, creating split ends, and damaging the hair follicle.
Don't over-bleach your hair.
Don't go more than 2-3 shades lighter when highlighting your hair. It could change the texture and takes years to get back to normal.
Use heat protection on hair for less damage if you blow-dry, use a curling iron or heat rollers.
Limit using too much heat on your hair.
Heat can be very damaging to your hair. Allow your hair to air dry as often as possible. Forgo the highest heat setting on your curling iron or flat iron. It can easily scorch your hair and possibly take years to grow out.
Use a hair mask regularly.
Hair masks work wonders for all hair types. Use it once a week for fine, curly, or oily hair. If you have dry hair, use it twice a week. And if you have damaged hair, use a mask two or even three times a week. A hair mask is essential in the winter when the air is dry. The extra moisture will help prevent fly-away hair from static electricity. We recommend It's a 10 Miracle Hair Mask.
Got thick, curly, hard-to-manage hair?
Try hair slugging. It works wonders if you want softer curls.
Vary the position of your ponytail
Pulling your hair into a ponytail is an easy way to keep it from getting tangled. Using an elastic in the same place can strain your hair and lead to breakage.
Time-saving tip for long hair
To save time in the morning, braid your hair or weave it around a cloth to wake up with soft, wavy hair.
Tips for hair washing.
Follow the American Academy of Dermatology guidance for healthy hair, not your favorite influencer, with a product to sell. You do not need to spend a fortune on shampoo with exotic ingredients.
Use a product crafted for your hair type. Shampoo is basically liquid soap, and most brands provide the same benefits. However, using the wrong kind of shampoo can dry it out.
You only need to wash your hair 2-4 times a week. Avoid daily washing.
Use lukewarm water to prevent it from drying out.
Shampoo your scalp. You only need to use a dollop the size of a quarter and gently massage your scalp with your fingers.
Don't pile your long hair on top of your head. Doing this will only tangle it.
Don't condition your scalp. Concentrate on conditioning the bottom third of your hair, and use a wide tooth comb to distribute it evenly.
Finally, use or wide tooth comb or Wet Brush on damp hair to prevent breaking it.
Taking care of your hair can take a little more time, but in the end, it will save you time. Prevention is better than damage control. You will have fewer bad hair days and can avoid an emergency trip to the hair salon. Book an appointment today for a free consultation with your next haircut!
