Choosing a Curling Iron

When choosing a curling iron there are several factors to consider and a hundred different options. First and foremost you should determine what size you would like your curls to be. Curling irons come in many different sizes ranging from 3/8 an inch to a full 2 inch barrel. If you would like larger curls then you would choose a larger barrel and for smaller curls a smaller barrel. You may also consider the texture of your hair and how well your hair “holds” the curl.  You might choose an iron one size smaller if your curls are going to relax on their own.

Permanent and Demi Permanent Hair Color

When deciding on the best options for your hair color needs, it can get a little confusing. So here is some insight to help you understand what your hairdresser is talking about when deciding between Permanent and Demi Permanent color.

There are only 2 types of color molecules in hair color, Oxidative and Non-Oxidative, and it all comes down to how you use them.  Oxidative dyes need a developer (H2O2) as the catalyst to start the oxidation process. This is the reaction that causes permanent color to become permanent. Non-Oxidative dyes or direct dyes do not need a developer as these dyes just sit on the surface of your hair.
