Got Damaged Hair?

Damaged HairToday’s modern technology in the hair industry has given us many avenues to achieve new desired looks from perming, coloring and hi-lighting to straightening, blow drying and curling the hair. We all want what we don’t have, right?

With all this new technology we can achieve almost any look but what we don’t realize is that if not used properly we can really damage our hair. So how do we know if we are damaging our hair and if we did damage our hair how can we repair it??

Knowing if you hair is already damaged is the first step you must take. Here are some signs of damaged hair:

Split Ends
You can tell if you have split ends by holding the ends of your hair and if they split into different directions then your ends are split, hence the name, split ends. There is no way to repair split ends but to just snip them off.

Dull & Dry 
Hair that is damaged will lack in luster and shine and will also be very dry, almost like sandpaper.

Weak & Brittle
If you apply moderate tension to your hair and it snaps easily that is a definite sign of damaged hair. Your hair is lacking moisture and elasticity causing the hair to become very weak. Another sign is if you comb or brush your hair and you see pieces (not full strands) of hair on your clothes.

Unmanageable
Hair that was once easy to style now is very difficult, frizzy and has lots of flyaways could be damaged hair.

Healthy hair is something our stylists can help you with. Call today to make an appointment with one of our talented and knowledgeable stylists. There’s no time like the present!

Manicured nails are beautiful, but without proper care in between them you may be throwing money away. Why not maintain your manicure as well as possible before your next visit? Here are some tips to maintaining your manicure.

First, treat your nails with care. Wear gloves when gardening or exposing your hands to water for extended periods of time. Do not use your nails as tools.

Keep your hands and nails well moisturized. It’s a good idea to maintain skin health as well as nail health. Use lotion on your hands to keep them hydrated and smooth. It’s a good idea to use lotions with an SPF of at least 15 if venturing out into the sun.

Likewise you should apply cuticle oil to keep the nails and cuticles moisturized. Cuticle oil not only keeps the nails and cuticles looking healthy, but it is a very important step in preventing hangnails and dry skin along the nails.

Be sure to file with care. Always use a fine grit file, which can range from 240-400 grit. Gently file in one direction. Never file in a back and forth or “sawing” motion. This type of filing causes the nails to fray and split.

The hair will return back to normal length after it is dried.
