Clients often come to us for all their hair styling, coloring and conditioning needs. But are there some things one SHOULD know about your hair? The answer is yes!
1. No Volume
Lack of volume can be caused by a variety of factors, but the most common reason is using the wrong shampoo/conditioner for their hair type. The second biggest reason is using conditioner all throughout their hair instead of just the midlengths and ends. It’s an easy problem to fix and makes a huge difference – consult your Stylist about what products will work best for your hair.
2. Damage Control
An easy way to prevent damage is to be gentle when detangling wet hair. Use a large-toothed comb or a brush designed to detangle wet hair, wet hair can be very fragile, so you need to be gentle when brushing or combing your wet hair!
3. Dulling Hair
Product buildup can cause dull hair overtime, especially when it is constantly used. Make sure you are using a clarifying shampoo once a week to rid your hair of buildup. This is an easy way to bring life back into their color and hair. Ask your stylist at Artisan for a recommendation.
4. Constant Split Ends
Even if you love to keep your hair really long, make sure you are trimming the ends, every 8 to 12 weeks. This helps to keep the hair in healthy, as dry, damaged ends split, and travel further up the hair shaft if you don't remove them.
5. Healthy Hair
How can you make your hair more lustrous, thick and healthy? It really makes a difference if you eat a healthy, balanced diet, drink plenty of water and take a multivitamin each day. Like skin, hair represents what is put into the body. So what you eat, really does matter when it comes to the health of your hair!
Ask your stylist at Artisan Salon Landpark for advice!
After a long day at the beach, my hair feels like barbed wire, so my grandma told me to put some mango mush or milk on it in the shower, and, yes, it works. My hair was completely renewed!" --Jocelyn, 15, Knoxville, TN
"Before you go to the beach, fill a bottle up with half conditioner and half water. Before you get into the water, spray your hair and comb it." --Andrea, 16, Eaton, OH
"Before you go into the water, while you're on the beach, spray some suntan lotion into your hair. It not only protects your hair, but it makes it look really nice, too." --Heidi, 15, Miami, FL
"When I've been on the beach all day, my hair feels dry like straw, so I put olive oil on the ends. When I wash it out in the morning, my hair feels nice and silky like I was never even at the beach!" --Hannah, 17, Philmont, NY
"To repair dry beach hair, just slice and mash an avocado, and put it on your hair as treatment right after conditioning. Rinse it off after five to seven minutes." --Suhey, 14, Bronx, NY
"After I come from the beach, I use a hot carrot oil treatment to make my hair soft again. Just heat up the carrot oil, and wrap in a moistened hot towel and leave, it makes hair soft, and creates defined curls." --Sasha, 16, Valrico, FL
"I dye my hair, and it usually gets dry by itself, but with the sun and chlorine it gets extremely dry. What I usually do is apply sunscreen to my part (it gets a little on your hair, too), and then use any good conditioner. It makes your hair feel as good as new"--Mariah, 14, Marshfield, WI
"I dip my hair into a tub of milk and honey, and then I let it sit for about an hour. Then I rinse and, if needed, repeat. After that, I blow it dry and style as desired." --Martha, 16, Akron, OH
