Healing Your Hair
There are a lot of factors that go into having healthy hair. Most of us have something that could be improved to bring the best out of our locks. Some of us may need a little more help than others — and that’s okay. Your Neroli Hair Designers are always here to help, and sometimes all it takes is a consultation! But, you can begin your hair journey at home with a few useful tips. We’ve seen it all, so let’s tackle the most common concerns.
Is your hair feeling a lack of luster, shine, and strength? Are you having breakage? Does your hair feel dry? Or maybe even a combination of all the above. Not to worry! There’s a solution for it all. Finding the cause of your hair damage is the first step to healthy hair. What are your bad hair habits?
Here are the top causes seen within the salon:
- Heat Damage
- Traction Damage
- Product Build Up
- Over Processing
You wouldn’t stick your hand into a hot oven with out an oven mitt, and the same goes for your hair. Hot tools typically start around 325 degrees and go up to 450 degrees. My top three favorite heat protectant are:
- Botanical Repair Strengthening Leave-In Treatment – perfect for any type of damage
- Nutriplenish Leave-In Conditioner – perfect for dry hair
- Heat Relief – perfect for any hot tool use or day two styling
Is your daily go-to look a tight messy bun? Repetitive tight pulling of the hair will actually cause damage over time to the hair strand and follicles. I often see this caused by ponytails, buns and tight braids. Instead of these tight styles, try alternating where you are banding your hair, or simply wear your hair down. Loose braids are also a great option for traction damage-free hair.
Using professional products is the best way to avoid product buildup. Many drug store products contain waxes that actually stick onto your hair like glue. Investing in a good shampoo and conditioner will help keep your hair much healthier. Asking your stylist for product recommendations is the best way to create a personalized hair care routine.
Over processing happens when the integrity of the hair is compromised by chemicals such as color or lightening the hair. This is why it’s important to see a licensed professional for all hair services. Yes, we’re looking at your box-dyers! Your stylist will have the education and experience to avoid these situations.
Even while seeing a professional stylist, you may notice at some point your hair has been pushed too far. If this happens a bond rebuilding treatment is a perfect option. You can use a bond rebuilder when coloring, lightening, or as a stand alone treatment. Aveda’s Botanical Repair Strengthening Treatment instantly makes your hair 5x stronger, by rebuilding three different layers of the hair strand.
Give your hair the love it needs, so it can live a happy & healthy live! Come on in, and for your next hair service discuss with your knowledgable Hair Designer the best course of action should be for your hair. We can’t wait to see you!
