3. Dont forget your UV protectants. Just
as your skin gets damaged by wind and sun, so does your hair.
To combat this, look for finishing products such as mousses,
gels and sprays that block UV rays.
4. Keep your appointments. Did you know that your
hair will split faster than it will grow? You need to get a trim
every 6 to 8 weeks, even if its just a micro trim. A good
hairdresser makes them good because they know what to leave on
the head, not take off.
5. Leave chemicals to the professionals. There
is a reason why beauticians need to go to school to learn how
to handle chemicals and hair processes. You can do irreparable
damage with these products even if the package says that its
way easy. And even if you dont make your hair fall out,
you could end up looking like a clown and paying a stylist big
bucks to fix your mess. (Note: Most stylists charge double the
rate for corrective color than they do for normal color processes)
6. Get color for interest and body. Every cut needs
a little bit of color to make it truly breathtaking. No matter
whether your taste is subtle or dramatic, you can add interest
and volume to your tresses with a color process. Highlights,
lowlights, all over color, gray coverage, you name it, its
all good for your look.
7. Do weekly conditioning treatments. Even if your
hair is extremely healthy, it is constantly on the attack from
wind, sun, cold and heat. During the summer months, your hair
is battered even more when it absorbs chlorine and other chemicals
from your pool.
8. Get an ionic ceramic flat iron. Instead of frying
your hair with a conventional metal plated flat iron. Straighten
your tresses, add shine and infuse moisture with one of the a
negative ionic flat irons. We personally use T3
