Tips for Super Healthy Hair

Keeping your hair healthy is the most important thing you can do to help it look and feel fabulous. Follow our advice on how to get beautiful, strong locks!

TIP #1: USE A LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

A leave in conditioner after you shower will make your hair more pliable and manageable. Leave-in conditioners penetrate deep into your hair cuticle to promote healing. We recommend Pureology Color Fanatic or Redken’s One United from our Mt Juliet hair salon. These are light conditioning leave-in products that eliminates tangles and fly-aways, making your hair easy to comb.

TIP #2: USE A HEAT PROTECTANT

Remember to use a good heat protectant on your hair before styling to protect the hair cuticle from any heat damage as you use your blow dryer, flat iron or curling iron. Choose a non-greasy product that won’t weigh your hair down. We suggest either Redken’s Iron Shape 11 or Frizz Dismiss Instant Deflate as your heat protectant. These will provide protection from heat and can tame frizz on even the most unruly hair. Your hair will be smooth and shiny with a lightweight, frizz-free finish. When used with heat, smoothing and shine are intensified.

TIP #3: CLARIFY ONCE A MONTH

Using high quality styling products that have low alcohol content will help to keep your hair healthy. Alcohol can be very drying to your hair. If you use several gels, mousses or other styling products on a regular basis, then try using a clarify shampoo once every week if a lot of products are used. We recommend using either Pureology’s Purify or Redken’s Hair cleansing cream.

TIP #4: INVEST IN QUALITY TOOLS

It is important to invest in good quality heat styling tools. Products that are crafted from ceramic or tourmaline are the best. Tourmaline irons have a natural property to produce more negative ions that seal the cuticle of the hair to control frizz. Ceramic irons allow heat to be evenly dispersed through your hair as you style it.

For Silky Smooth Hair…

Deep conditioning treatments are an important part of hair care, and should be a part of your healthy hair regimen. Using a deep conditioner such as Redken’s Chemistry System on a regular basis can add life to your hair. The main reason hair is dull and unmanageable is because it is stripped of moisture. Overuse of hairdryers, curling and flat irons, and different chemicals will strip away shine, leaving it weak and damaged. Elasticity, color, moisture and overall health of your hair will improve because of emollients and other moisturizing ingredients that are found in deep conditioners.

A deep conditioning treatment is essential for healthy hair. This should not be mistaken for a daily conditioning. A daily conditioner is important for maintaining your hair and should follow each shampoo. On the other hand, a deep conditioner will moisturize your scalp and restore strength to your hair preventing split ends and breakage. Dull or lifeless hair could be a sign of a protein deficiency or a breakdown of cell deep inside the hair structure. A deep conditioning treatment from our Mt Juliet hair salon is great way to bounce back from damage and dryness, and begin to nourish and rejuvenate your hair.
