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!
