I received such positive feedback from my column about hair tips that I decided to do another.
We are getting into our least favorite time of year for weather that affects our hair – that is, damp and steamy. (April showers, remember?)
At this point, most of us are walking around with a stunning halo of fuzz. This fuzz is part of living in the South near salty, wet air.
There are zillions of defrizzing products on the market. Anything that is silicone based or creamy should keep frizz at bay. However, use caution when applying, because your hair can get too oily and will need to be reshampooed.
The best solution to this fuzz issue is the Brazilian blowout for a three- to four-month remedy. It actually changes the hair texture and makes it so much easier to style. The fuzz disappears and the hair is smoother, without compromising the body or curl.
A keratin relaxer also solves the frizzies and makes the hair much straighter. It’s kind of a Brazilian blowout on crack.
The benefit to both of these treatments is they are good for the hair and are somewhat cumulative – so you don’t have to have them as frequently as the first few times.
Luckily, controlled wavy hair is very “in” right now. The poker straight hair is out. Taking on more interest are beachy waves, braids, bangs, and curls.
Actually, anything and everything is in – as long as the hair is shiny and healthy. And as long as it’s a style that’s suited for your face and lifestyle.
I’ll say it again: Perms are great for you if you don’t want to have to do anything with your hair. The less you do, the better it looks.
Sun damaged, brassy, over-lightened hair is a no-no. It is very common in this climate as well. A clear sealer can be done in the salon that closes down the cuticle layer, making the hair look so much healthier and happier.
If that is coupled with a demi color, it will bring the hair back to a rich, natural color. Then, clear sealing will improve the integrity of the hair 10 times.
Whether it’s a temporary wash-out laminate product or a salon treatment, you can give your hair some love and care and reboot it with some awesome salon products and services.
