Another myth to share getting rid of head lice

What Else You Should KnowAccording to Monica, many stylists have trouble with lice misidentification (dandruff and oil buildup are commonly mistaken for lice), so here are the characteristics you should look for:

  • They’re always tear-drop shaped.
  • They always sit on one side of the hair strand.
  • They are always uniform in shape and size (this means every particle in the hair will look pretty much the same, whereas with dandruff, the particles will be different shapes and sizes).
  • They are not always milky white—they can range in color from almost clear to almost black.
  • They must be pried off the hair strand—they don’t easily slide or pull off.

Head lice myth....

Tea tree oil is the best preventative method for lice.
Tea tree oil is not the most effective preventative, says Monica. Instead, spray your head and back of your neck with a peppermint oil-based product. Also, recommend longer-haired children keep their hair pulled back at school.

Another myth of getting rid of head lice...

Mayonnaise (or Coca-Cola/Listerine/kerosene/coconut oil and vinegar) can all help treat lice.
None of these methods kill 100 percent of the lice or nits (louse eggs). The only effective way to get rid of lice is to pick them out one by one with a metal head lice and nit comb (like the Nitorious B.U.G. Terminator Comb).

myths of getting rid of head lice.....

1: You need to wash and disinfect everything that has been touched at home.
Lice are primarily transferred via head-to-head contact, and they cannot live off the head for more than 24 hours. So there’s no need for to wash furniture or clothing, spray mattresses or throw away stuffed animals. 

  • Change their sheets
  • Put stuffed animals in a corner or a closet overnight.
More tips coming!

Are you cutting your hair at home or should you? Helpful hint of how

I always tell my clients if they need that neck hair clipped or a quick bang trim before their next cut to come on in complimentary and I will do it.  Before you do it yourself ask your stylist if they do that or ask how much for that and maybe they will welcome you as I do.
Otherwise if you have a card stock piece of paper you could use it as a guide across your forehead with out pushing down too hard so if you have cowlicks they wont pop up on you when you are done. If you like slanted or rounded band you can cut your paper to the shape you want.  If you scissors are not sharp it will be hard to cut well so be sure you have a sharp scissor.

Does your color need that kick to it? Too dark maybe..........

Darker shades can  be very pretty but if you dont see differant light shades, red or gold shades sometimes the color can look drab. Putting some Hi Lites can be very attractive.  Hi Lite doesnt mean blonde always,  it can be lighter shades of brown.  Take a look in the mirror and look at what you see with you color, and look when you are outside in the sun what color/colors you see.  It might be time to rethink your color.

should you take that leap with hair color?

Why not?  Yes of course you should take that leap!  If your hair is a little too dark, get a subtle ombre done to lighten it up or some hi lites.  If its too light get a deeper tone color wash that will fade slowly in a few months or go more permanent with it.  Even some low lites work great.  Add more tones to your hair and bring that sparkle back to your skin tone :))

How do you keep smiling on a bad hair day?

Keep smiling everyday ; even on a bad hair day!   If your hair is longer put it up in a pretty clip or barrette and if you know how to do braids that works to or any other tools to create a casual up do like the topsy tail tool, better known as the loop tool.
If your hair is short bring out the hair spray and funk it up a bit, or if on the greasy side put dry shampoo on your hair and work it in or use powder or cornstarch.  Always use sparingly a little at a time as you work it!  Even short hair can wear some hair clips :))

How to find a good hair salon/stylist

Sometimes it can be challenging to find the right place to go for your hair.  If you see someone that has similar hair or even if you dont know for sure but you really like how well cut their hair is stop and ask them.  If its the style you want ask if you could take their picture of their hair.  Most people will not mind, its a compliment.  You will have to take some time looking online and see the reviews, the ratings, call them and see how welcoming they are when they answer the phone and to answer any questions you may have.  Keeping in mind their time on the phone may be limited if they are busy but if the person on the phone is making every effort to answer your questions more than likely they will make every effort when you are sitting in the chair to be sure you are happy.  Check out their website and you can even stop in to pick up a business card and check it out.  Good Luck!

How to give your hair style a day off........

Sometimes your hair needs some TLC just like we do.  So when you have a chill day give your hair a break from the blow dryer and irons.  Brush through your hair with a wet brush or a firm brush with soft to medium bristles so you can get it thoroughly brushed through and let your natural oils condition your hair on its own.  If you feel like your hair gets greasy when you brush it its really your natural oils that is good to run through you hair.  You can wash it that night or next day :))

How to get hair spray and product build up off your hair

If you take a 8 oz of water to 2 Tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and apply it for a few minutes after you shampoo that will help remove residue on your hair.  If you want to just maintain the rinse you can do that once a week or less and only use 1 tablespoon of the vinegar.  Work it through where your build up is with your hands and you can comb it through too to help loosen it up,

Conditioning Treatments

Conditioning treatments have more kick and intensity if you towl blot after you wash your hair, put a good conditioner on, not the kind you put on in the shower and rinse in a minute but one that is  labeled treatment or look for the words, extreme, intense, deep, those are generally words you will see in the stronger conditioners.  When you put that all through your hair cover with a plastic cap/ shower cap.  Wrap a warm towl around your head or sit under a heated dryer.  If you look online you can buy a cap dryer from walmart at a very cheap price.  Your hair will absorb enough in one treatment in a 15 minute time under the heat.  Hair salons charge from 10-$25 for that.  In fact often you can buy the conditioner you need from your stylist. Depending on how damaged or dry your hair is you can do this once a week and than move toward every other to once a month.
Happy Conditioning!

How to check the strength of you hair.........

If you are unsure if your hair is strong enough to put chemicals on it as color or perms check and see how strong your hair is:  Take a strand or more of hair from each side and back of you hair and one area at a time hold middle of hair and end and pull lightly.  If your hair is not breaking pull just a little harder and if you feel your hair springs back you should be ok.  You always need to clear it with the stylist doing your hair.  You can always ask them to do a test strand if you are unsure how healthy your hair is.  I always recommend White Tea Miracle Foam by Scruples which is a leave in hair conditioner that really works great on building strength and maintaining.  White Tea is a huge seller in my salon.  Good Luck!

Have your hair extensions loosened up?

After your hair grows a bit your extensions will loosen up, also if you have micro beads some beads are not tight enough and can loosen and come out.  If you have sew ins if the braids are not tight and or not sewn tight it will loosen.  If you have tape ins the adhesive may loose its strength or too much hair may have been taped and that can cause loosening too.

How to cut a lighter bang.........

When cutting a lighter weight bang you dont want to cut so blunt, instead if you cut small little point's, little v's across you wont have a blunt edge.  Starting in the middle than go left to right across to the end of where your eyebrow ends or go half way to the middle than slant your scissors down towards your cheek bone to have a slight angle framing your eyes.

How to cut blunt bangs and why..

If you want to see a straight edge, which is a blunt edge to your bangs that will create a heavier line on your forehead/eyebrow length.  It will give a fuller illusion.  Start in the middle and use that to be your guide to go left and than to right.  If you are right handed you will hold the bang in your left hand and cut under your fingers as your guide with your right hand.  A sharp scissor and a steady hand will give an even cut.

Tip in cutting your bangs

A tip for cutting your bangs is not pull them down with too much tension because they always pop up and that is when you can get them too short.  Also if you have any cowlicks at your hairline where your bangs are you have to allow for that, that is the area you cut your bangs a little longer so when you let go they will be even :))  I hope this tip was helpful to you, let me know!
