SECRETS OF GREAT HAIR CARE

Posted:
Yes, they do! First and foremost everyone needs a proper shampoo and conditioner. The right one for you depends on your hair and scalp type. Many people don’t understand how shampoo and conditioner work together: The shampoo’s function is primarily to cleanse the scalp and roots of the hair, while the suds will go through the ends as you rinse. The conditioner is meant to treat primarily the hair, and specifically mid-shaft to ends (from the ears down). Never scrub shampoo roughly into your hair as it will roughen the cuticle. Remember: Hair is directional, and you always want to work with the direction of the cuticle so that it remains healthy and shiny.
 
Some of my favorite products based on need and hair type:
 
FINE HAIR needing volume:
-Kerastase Volumifique Shampoo and Thickening Effect Gel Treatment
-Kerastase Densite Shampoo
-Shu Uemura Muroto Volume Shampoo and Conditioner
 
COLOR TREATED HAIR:  
-Kerastase Chroma Captive Shampoo and Conditioner
-Shu Uemura Color Lustre
 
FRIZZY UNTAMED HAIR
-Kerastase Discipline Shampoo and Conditioner
-Shu Uemura Shusu Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner
 
THICK UNRULY HAIR
-Shu Uemura Moisture Velvet
-Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo Riche (LOVE!!)
 
If you only purchase one product before you leave the salon, and you plan on blow-drying, flat ironing, or curling your hair with an iron, you must use a thermique heat protectant to make sure you don’t damage your hair.  Apply a dime size of product on the palm of your hand, emulsify with your hands to activate the ingredients, apply to your hair from mid-shaft to end (ears down) to create a protectant barrier from blow-dryers and heat tools.
 
Heat protectant products also vary depending on hair type:
 
FINE OR DAMAGED HAIR
-Kerastase Ciment Thermique
 
FRIZZY INTAMED HAIR
-Kerastase Keratine Thermique
 
COLOR TREATED HAIR
-Shu Uemura Color Lustre Thermo-Milk
 
THICK, DRY HAIR
-Kerastase Nectar Thermique
