What is wrong with my hair? It used to be so healthy, thick and shiny! Many things can take a toll on your hair. Just to name a few... Weather change, the type of water in your house, age, having babies,
vitamin deficiencies. Some of those things we just have to roll with and adapt to our ever changing lives. Sometimes, we need a doctor to help get things balanced out and it’s an easy fix.
We aren’t going to focus on those things today though. We are going to focus on the fun stuff!
• The first great thing that can help you achieve or maintain healthy hair is conditioning treatments and masks. If you’ve never tried one, give it a shot! They are a game changer in the hair world. There are treatments for every hair type and every hair problem. Don’t shy away from them even if you have fine hair. We can prescribe the perfectly balanced conditioning treatment for you too.
• Another factor in having great hair is using the correct shampoo, conditioner and styling products for your hair type and needs. You are not alone in this! Your stylist should be educating you on what he or she is using on your hair with each visit to the salon. If you have any questions, just ask. Even if you get home and forget how to use the product, do not hesitate to call and ask again. It’s okay, and we love helping you! It can get overwhelming at times when you look under the cabinet at your stock of products that you have picked up here and there and you don’t even know what they are for or if they are what’s best for your hair anymore. Sometimes, you need to just bring them into the salon, go through them one by one and figure it out with a little help from your hair doctor”!
• Our next helpful tip, hotter is not always better. I’m talking about your hair dryer, flat iron and curling iron. Some people’s hair can take the heat, but if your hair is sensitive or breaking easily, turn down that heat a bit. Your hair will thank you! And please, please, make sure you are using a heat protectant every time you use hot tools on your hair.
• Haircuts--they are a must! But, what if you’re trying to grow your hair out? Even just “skimming” the ends or as I call it, a “trimskie”, will help your hair look and feel better. It doesn’t have to be a major haircut every time you come in to get your hair done. At times, less is more. Unless you want a big change. In that case, woohoo! Let’s have some fun! Either way, you can have fabulous hair and always feel your best.
