Hair Care Shampoo

May 16, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Buying the right shampoo is easy. It’s when you take it home and find that what you thought it would do it doesn’t that makes it frustrating! Ph balance again is important but no shampoo is going to “fix” your hair. Read the label before you buy, is it for your hair type? When you do use shampoo use the amount that is right for your length. If you have really long hair I suggest using twice as much than you would for shoulder length hair (about a toonie for shoulder length).

When shampooing always massage into your scalp with your fingers, not nails and let the shampoo run through the rest of your hair while you are rinsing. This will prevent your hair from becoming to dry. Do not shampoo your hair everyday, your hair has natural occurring oils that are good it. I realize hair that is thin and fine needs to be washed more often, but this is the worst thing for this kind of hair. If you can, on the second day try to put your hair up instead of washing it. If you do not use too many styling products on day one of shampooing, your hair will not look as oily on day two. This Paul Mitchell Clarify product is a good choice to start the routine of washing every two days

Try to stay away from products that are a shampoo and conditioner in one. Do you notice that some people can go days without washing their hair and it still looks healthy and shiny? Well I know it is a little depressing for those who cannot, but after you shampoo every second day instead of everyday your hair will start to be “okay” with this. The first little while your hair may still look a little oily at the roots but this starts to diminish. Also to avoid excess damage make sure you use your styling tools, ie: hair straightener, curling irons and blow dryers at the correct setting for your hair. Too hot, more damage on thinner, finer hair types.

Long Hairstyles

Long hair can be extremely feminine, versatile, flirty and is often admired. The only down side to long hairstyles, and I speak from experience, is the maintenance. If you choose to go with long hair get a hair cut that works best with your hairs texture to help minimize the amount of time it takes to style it. With any cut it also best to get a style to suit your face shape and features.

Long hair looks great with layers, and you can style hair straight, wear it curly or make it wavy. For those of you with super straight hair, the longer it is the harder it can be to keep a curl in your hair. However, with the right tools and styling products, you can curl straight hair and have it hold.

Here are some great pictures of Popular Straight Hairstyles for 2008-

Can I use a curling iron on my hair after permanent hair straightening?

February 10, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

It is highly recommended that you do not wash, kink or curl your hair for the first 72 hours after having permanent straightening done. After this waiting period it is said that curling your hair is fine although I have read that many women who have chosen to curl their hair after this straightening process have been left with some permanent ‘kinks’ as well as many have found that their hair will not hold the curl or waves for very long.

If you have a special event coming up and would like to have some curls or waves it is suggested that you go back to your stylist who did the straightening and discuss with them about having your hair curled. Your stylist should have the right styling products and tools to help you achieve your desired look without leaving any permanent kinks or curl.

This permanent straightening process is also known as Japanese Hair Straightening, Re-bonding, Japanese Straight Perm, Thermal Reconditioning, Thermal Reconstruction, and Ionic Straightening.
