Is Hair Dead?

The answer is yes and no. The hair that is outside of your scalp is considered dead, simply because there are no blood vessels, nerves or muscles. Even though our hair is dead it, can stretch up to 30% of its length, if it’s healthy, and can also absorb its own weight in water. Our hair is also remarkable by virtue of its resilience. We color, cut, wash, brush, heat, cool, pull, tug, twist and rub our hair; and if it’s in good health, still remains intact.

We Love the WOB!

We love the WOB style for summer!  Bob hairstyles are a huge look this summer, especially considering the previous popular short styles worn by celebrities (i.e. Jennifer Lawrence, Kaley Cuoco). The casual benefits and low maintenance of this haircut is taking precedent over the long curls and bedhead hairstyles worn by so many women.

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.

Choosing the Correct Round Brush

A round brush is primarily used for styling and can be very effective. With so many choices on the market, it can be difficult to choose the correct one for your hair. With a round brush, you can straighten while maintaining body, create soft waves, and maximize volume.

Wait 48 Hours Before Washing Colored Hair

No matter what color service you’ve had performed, we recommend waiting 48 hours before washing your hair.

If you have had a service done with bleach, your hair is very fragile due to the high pH level of your hair during the bleach application (making it weak). Waiting 48 hours gives your hair time to return naturally to its original pH and allows any conditioning treatments done in the salon time to heal and repair your hair as well. With bleached hair we always recommend leave-in conditioning sprays to strengthen hair and color safe shampoos and conditioners to keep your hair healthy and color beautiful. Your stylist should be recommending additional products if your hair is in need of repair or moisture.
