Hair maintenance

One of the most commonly asked question is "What products should I use in my hair?" There are some great products on the market, but those products won't do you any good if your burning out your hair using heat on it everyday. Hair has to be nourished on a regular bases. Not every product is designed for every person either. I think its vital to have a licensed professional to take care of your hair. I'm going to list a few ways that you can maintain the health of your hair.

Fine hair
  • Volumizing or thickening shampoo/conditioner
  • Treatment (reconstructor, hair mask) *nothing heavy that will weigh hair down*
  • Moisturizing conditioner
  • Heat protectent before styling
  • style as desired
Normal to Course hair
  • Hydrating, Moisturizing, Smoothing shampoo/conditioner
  • reconstructor (1-2 a month)
  • Moisturizing conditioner 
  • Strengthening conditioner
  • light spray-on leave in conditioner (spray on before blow-drying)
  • light oil/serum (before or after blow-drying) (dime size amount)
  • style as desired

There are many components that go into assuring that your hair remains healthy. Only professional products should be used on you hair. Its important to switch up your shampoo and conditioner every 5-6 months so that your hair is getting all the nutrients it needs. If you use a product too long your hair will adjust to it. Its also important to sleep on satin, it locks in moisture. Many people get breakage in the winter, because of hats, coats, and scarves that we wear. That material is brutal on hair. Its best to wear softer materials, or wear hair up. Wool looks great on, but its harsh on your hair.
