TIPS FROM A HAIRDRESSER

After twenty-eight years in the Beauty Industry there are a few tricks I’ve learned along the way. These are my top go-to tips for my clients (that I like, anyways)

  • If you have split ends, they will continue to split as the hair grows out from the scalp. So you do need to trim just the split ends even if your growing out your hair. Ask to get cut after a shampoo and blow dry so you don’t get too much off.
  • When drying your hair, always loose dry it 80% dry before using a brush.
  • To create big smooth roller looking bend, use a brush with metal in the middle, pull 90 degrees out from the scalp first with hot heat. On final pull use cold heat button and let it set a little before you take the brush out.
  • If you wear your hair up a lot. Do not have it tight or in an elastic band. You will get breakage right where the band is. Use an ouchless band.
  • Every hair type should always have a protective product in their hair before blow drying with a blow dryer. Especially, fine hair. Otherwise, the heat will dry out the hair.
  • Sulfate-free shampoos are in my opinion, the best for your hair because sodium lauryal-sulfate, one of the common surfactants in shampoo, is very drying, as it can strip the hair of its natural oils that keep your hair shiny and healthy.

So there you have it. These are just a few off the top of my head. Check out current blogs on my Beauty Copywriting website.
