Comments Off on How Old Does Your Hair Say You Are?

As we age, our hair, loses some of its shine and it can become brittle and dry. It is important to keep those dry ends trimmed up. If you use blow dryers, curling irons, flat irons, or hot rollers regularly, you may want to trim your hair at least every six to eight weeks. And try to give your hair a day off each week. Wash with a gentle, PH balanced shampoo and just let your hair air dry. Another hint. Unless your hair is very oily, do not wash it every day. Try washing it ever other day instead, and using a dry shampoo just on the roots to keep your hair looking fresh.

A light coating of Olive Oil, primarily on the ends, and wrap your hair in a towel or plastic wrap and just let it seep in. Bonne Foi makes a product that will help protect your hair and keep it soft, shiny and smooth. Used regularly, it will protect your hair stands.

Our Keratin Hair Treatment is made from natural Keratin, derived from New Zealand sheep’s wool. It is shipped to us in small flakes, which we then slowly dissolve in a specially designed formula over a period of two weeks. In addition to the Keratin Hair treatment, work with your professional stylist to make certain the products you use to wash and condition your hair are the right ones for your hair type. Here are some helpful hints from WebMD:

“Drying Guide for Dry Hair

  • Squeeze wetness out of your hair. Rubbing a towel back and forth causes friction, which breaks your hair.
  • Spray on a detangling, moisturizing product before using the blow dryer, flat iron, or curling iron. This protects against the heat and keeps your hair from drying out. For maximum protection, spray it on from the ends to the roots and then brush through, rather than combing, to cover hair completely.
  • Use natural boar bristle brushes while blow drying.
  • Hold the blow dryer 4 to 6 inches away from the brush as you style.
  • Styling Guide for Dry Hair

Always clean your blow dryer’s vents regularly or buy a new one. When lint or hair build up in the dryer vents, the air can’t flow through freely and the pressure goes down. This means that you end up using too much heat to style your hair. Ask your stylist to check your blow dryer, flat iron, or curling iron and other styling tools to make sure they’re in good working condition.

  • Use products that contain nourishing oils, like argan, avocado, and olive instead of heavily fragranced or volumnizing products, which can dry out hair.
  • Deep condition at home up to twice a week and in the salon once a month.
  • Get regular trims from your stylist to keep your hair healthy and manageable without having to overuse conditioners or detangling products.”
