hair tips

  1. After color, wash hair with warm water (as opposed to hot) to ensure your color will last longer.

  2. Use a heat protectant (such as Vita Cimente by Kerestase or Nutri Thermique) each and every time you style your hair.

  3. Wash and style your hair less frequently and freshen in between with dry shampoo.

  4. Brush your hair gently, especially when wet. It's easy to rush through your hair and break it.

  5. Schedule of regular trim every 6 to 10 weeks.  There is nothing more important than this. Ignore it, and doing everything else right will not make your hair healthy.

  6. Gradually make gentle changes with the color of your hair. Hair isn't strong enough to change color with the seasons and if you want long shiny hair small changes will go a long way.

  7. Use quality shampoo and conditioner that your colorist or stylist recommends. It's in their best interest as well as yours to keep your hair as healthy and beautiful as possible.

  8. Change your part often to create more volume.

  9. Talk to your stylist about a maintenance schedule that you are comfortable with, and stick to it.  If you decided upon a color that needs 4 to 6 week maintenance, your hair won't look as amazing if you only make an appointment every four months.

  10. Invest in a professional blow dryer, it really does make a difference.

  11. Put away the flat iron! This is quite possibly the most damaging tool you can use on your hair. To use it for a special occasion is fine but daily use is simply too much!
