“What Can I Do About My Thinning Hair?”

“What Can I Do About My Thinning Hair?”

“What Can I Do About My Thinning Hair?” By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
Thinning hair has many causes including side effects of certain medications, illness, stress, over use of cosmetic hair products, and improper hair care.
 
But the common thread through any of these possibilities is always nutrition. Once you consult a dermatologist to find out what is causing your thinning hair, then it only requires a small amount of effort on your part to correct it.
 
Healthy hair starts in the kitchen! Make sure you get plenty of omega 3 fatty acids to strengthen and promote hair growth. Fish such as salmon, sardines, cod and mackerel are excellent sources, as well as flax seed.
 
Healthy hair needs GLA, gamma linoliec acid, to strengthen the hair shaft and keep it thick. Black current oil in capsule form contains plenty of GLA, and it’s widely available.
 
Another excellent source is coconut oil. Just massage it on your scalp during the week to help combat thinning hair. Taking care of your hair, just like your health, is a commitment. One that pays you back daily!

6 Insider Tips You Must Know Before Getting Hair Extensions

6 Insider Tips You Must Know Before Getting Hair Extensions

6 Insider Tips You Must Know Before Getting Hair Extensions By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
Hair extensions are just plain fun! For many, it’s a dream come true and we couldn’t be happier. If you’re thinking about getting extensions, great!
 
But before you rush to make your appointment, be informed and prepared.
 
Never be afraid to ask for certificates and qualifications of your extensionist. The hair extension industry is not regulated so some extensionists are not even qualified stylists. As reputable stylists, we proudly display our licenses and certificates. You never have to worry about our expertise!
 
Always start with a consultation first. (We require it.) This allows your stylist to examine your hair to determine the condition and to get a good understanding of what you want to achieve. If your hair is damaged, your stylist may recommend improving the condition of it before applying extensions. Also, sometimes it’s necessary to cut your hair prior to applying extensions to allow them to blend more naturally. This is why a consult is crucial!
 
Hair extensions do require some extra TLC. Yes, theydo require a bit more time to keep them looking great, but not much. If you have gone from short to long hair, you will have to get used to the length, weight and new drying time.
 
Properly applied, hair extension will not damage your natural hair. That’s why it’s critical to get a trained cosmetologist to do the work. This is your hair we’re talking about!
 
Some of the bonds may fail during the first month. This is not a cause for panic or a reflection of your stylist’s expertise, unless it’s 10-12! This is often due to weight distribution. One side of your hair is naturally thicker than the other. You may simply lose a few bonds as an adjustment. Just ask if you have questions or concerns. We’ll guide you through the initial stage easily.
 
And remember, not everyone is suited for hair extensions. But, if you love hair, can’t wait to try new hairstyles and enjoy the little bit of maintenance it takes to have your new look, then you’re perfectly suited to enjoy your new locks!

How To Care For Damaged Hair

How To Care For Damaged Hair

How To Care For Damaged Hair By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
It happens to all of us at one time or another. Too much “daily abuse” with curling irons, flat irons and blow dryers can cause hair to become damaged, not to mention trips to the beach, cold winter weather and rough treatment…the list is practically endless!
 
That’s why we’ve put together a primer for managing damaged hair until you have healthier hair days ahead:
 
Shampoo – Once hair is damaged, it can’t be repaired, but you can make it appear healthier. In the interim, choose a shampoo that is gentle and is designed to treat damaged hair.
 
Because shampooing can make your hair drier, shampoo once or twice a week at most. Your stylist will need to do monthly trims to remove the damage.
 
Conditioner – Use a light leave-in conditioner to help minimise the unattractive appearance of dry hair. Also, deep condition once a week.
 
Style – Talk to your stylist about a haircut that can minimise the appearance of the damage while you’re growing healthier locks. Steer clear of colouring, perms, and relaxers during this time.
 
If the damage is severe, you might want to consider a short cut. Once the damage grows out, you can grow healthier, longer hair.
 
Don’t Make It Worse! Please, please! Do not make matters worse by trying to solve the problem yourself. We love do-it-yourself projects, just not with your hair.
 
Believe us when we say that we’ve seen all kinds of damage through the years. Don’t go there!
 
We can give you excellent products and treatments to get you and your hair on the road to bouncy, shiny, healthy hair in no time!

It’s maddening, isn’t it? And there is a name for it: resistant grey. It’s really hard to cover resistant grey hair with box colour.
 
Salons use different chemicals to pop open hair cuticles and soften the strands, allowing the colour to penetrate more easily.
 
When it comes to the health of your hair, it’s best to let us do it. We love hair so much we spent a whole year in school to understand it and work with it!

Long Hair Care Tips By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
*nbsp;
As with all hairstyles, long hair does require maintenance to keep it looking lush. Here are some easy tips for rocking your locks.
*nbsp;
– Wash it gently! Use a top quality shampoo formulated for your specific type of hair (dry, normal combination, or oily). We can help you there. Scrub the hair on your scalp and massage down to the ends.
*nbsp;
– Use a top quality conditioner. Pay special attention to the ends of your hair. Press it into the ends, but gently. No rubbing!
*nbsp;
– Rinse with warm then cool water—not hot. Hot water is damaging, causing it to look frizzy, which makes it difficult to style.
*nbsp;
– Dry it gently! (Are you sensing a theme here?) Use a soft towel or cotton T-shirt to squeeze out excess moisture. Wrapping you hair in a towel or twisting it on your head can damage it and make it rough.
*nbsp;
– Use a leave-in conditioner or detangler, especially if your hair is thick and/or curly. These products can keep your hair soft and manageable.
*nbsp;
– Get trims every 6-8 weeks. This will remove split ends. Excess weight can cause hair to become oily, frizzy or dry!
*nbsp;
Remember, your lifestyle shows in your long hair! Excessive stress, lack of sleep, smoking, and poor exercise habits make it harder to keep your hair healthy. For head turning looks, take care of your hair both outside and inside!

How To Get Beautiful Curls

How To Get Beautiful Curls

How To Get Beautiful Curls By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
If you’re looking for big, bouncy curls or lots of wave Bohemian-style, there is a trick to it.
 
The first place you start is in the shower! Use a shampoo and conditioner designed to enhance waves.
 
If your hair is naturally straight, follow with a curling mousse to promote body and wave. If you already have some natural wave or curl, use a styling milk followed by a frizz-fighting serum.
 
For straight-haired girls, run your fingers through it and move the dryer all around your head—not smoothing it out—but maintaining as much body as possible.
 
For curlier hair, use a diffuser to bring out as much natural curl as possible.
 
Choose the curling iron size for the look you want. Divide hair into sections, starting in the back.
 
Spray each section with a light hold hair spray.
 
Hold the curling iron vertically (like a ribbon around a stick). Hold for a few seconds and release.
 
Follow with a light finishing spray to hold waves. For those who already have some natural wave, use a curling iron to smooth out frizzy sections or to enhance those areas that need a bit more wave or curl.
 
It’s official. You rock curls and style!

The Healthy Hair Diet By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
We can use all of our magic powers to make your hair look fabulous when you leave the shop.
BUT…
 
If you’re not taking care of your hair from the inside out, all of our work is short lived. Why? Because what you eat can either work its own magic or wreak havoc.
 
Your hair is more than 90% protein, so make sure you get plenty of it. Hair loves vitamin A, too, so get plenty of fruits and vegetables like cantaloupe, apricots, squash, sweet potatoes and carrots.
 
And like mom said, eat your broccoli! B vitamins help promote hair growth and prevent hair loss and breakage. So include beans, sunflower seeds, peas, nuts and leafy green vegetables.
 
Fast food is a fast hair wrecker, so cut those down, then cut them out! Keep those locks shiny and bouncy!

PLEASE Break These 6 “Hair Care” Rules!

Please Break These 6 “Hair Care” Rules!

PLEASE Break These 6 “Hair Care” Rules! By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
Beware! Some well-meaning practices actually reduce product effectiveness, making hair more difficult to work with.
 
– Applying product to sopping wet hair. This just dilutes the product making it far less effective. A better option is to blow dry your hair until it’s damp, then apply styling products. For short hair, this rule breaker does not apply
 
– Brushing 100 strokes a day. This does NOT help your hair, quite the opposite. It causes breakage and can activate your oil glands making hair greasier. Do brush your hair but don’t go overboard!
 
– Hair colour damages your hair. Hooey! This may have been true 20 years ago, but today, salon colour is loaded with extra conditioners. Want to colour your hair? Go for it (Box colour is a totally different story!)
 
– Only thick, dry hair needs deep conditioning. Even fine hair benefits from weekly deep conditioning treatments. The key, like everything, is to get the right formula. Use a protein-based conditioner rather than a moisturizing one to keep fine hair healthy, not weighted down.
 
– Always use a comb on wet hair. Not so. If you mist your hair with a leave-in conditioner or use a few drops of Moroccan Oil to coat the hair shaft, it will allow your brush to slide through easily.
 
– Blow dry from back to front. Start in the front. This is the area people see first, so it makes sense to start there, plus it reduces potential frizz!
