Women and beauty often times go hand in hand and as a stylist I want to help educate clients on proper hair care.
At the salon, we have recently began to see an increase in clients with hair that has been overly flat ironed. Unfortunately, fried ends cannot be saved with any conditioning treatments, and you know what that means - that dreaded haircut you have been putting off for much too long is now desperately needed.
Hair cannot be brought back to life once you have applied to much heat to such fragile ends, leaving you with no other option but to cut it.
So I was thinking, how can I fix the situation? Here is a simple guide to not only protect your hair from further damage, but also help repair and educate you in to restoring shine to those beautiful locks.
My job as a stylist is to give you the essential tools to make you look and feel beautiful. All you will need is a flat iron with a temperature guide, thermal protection spray and a little bit of patience.
To flat iron hair:
(1) Adjust the temperature of the flat iron for your specific hair texture – if you flat iron the hair more than twice a week, keep the heat setting fairly low
(2) ALWAYS prepare the hair with a thermal protection spray
(3) Beginning at the hairline, smooth out those baby fine hairs. Too much tension with the flat iron can cause breakage.
(4) Take small sections, and continue working your way up the head until there is no hair left.
(5) Finish with a light hairspray, taming those stubborn little fly aways.
(6) You’re ready to go!
Remember to take extra care when it comes to applying any type of heat to your hair, whether it is with a flat iron or a blow dryer.
With these simple tools, I can ensure that your hair will be back to perfection in no time! Find me at Salon Nuuvo, www.salonnuuvo.com, located in the Summit of Calabasas, and ask for Angelica, 818.871.9441
