Do You Love Your Hair Too Much?

Do You Love Your Hair Too Much?

Do You Love Your Hair Too Much? By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864

Is your hair falling flat? Does it lack a natural shine, feel rough or greasy to the touch? If so, it could be you love your hair too much!

Hair that seems like it’s only half alive even after using heated styling tools and volumising sprays is sending you an S.O.S. signal. “Help! I’m overloaded!”

Hair sprays, mousse, gels, hard water, chlorine and all kinds of stuff build up on your hair over time—even with regular conditioning and shampooing!

That’s why we recommend a clarifying shampoo. This gets rid of product build up. For most people, once or twice a month is ideal.

Coloured hair can also use a clarifying shampoo, but carefully. It can cause hair colour to fade. So, it’s best to use it no more than once a month. And definitely do not clarify within the first few weeks of fresh colour.

So how do you clarify? It’s simple. Just use a nickel or quarter size amount of the product and work into your hair. Massage for about a minute, then rinse. Apply your regular shampoo as normal. You’ll notice your sudsy lather right away.

But If You Are Still Having Problems…

That’s where we can help! We have stronger clarifying treatments that will get your hair soft and manageable immediately.

How To Keep The Shine All Year Long

How To Keep The Shine All Year Long

How To Keep The Shine All Year Long By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
It’s the same problem all year long: keeping hair shiny. In the summer, it’s the sun, not to mention our constant use of styling tools!
 
Overexposure dries out those tresses making hair look dull and flat. And the winter?
 
More of the same, except cold temperatures suck out moisture and make hair harder to manage.
 
What can you do? As always, we have many choices to suit your busy lifestyle.
 
– When hair is moisture-starved, styling tools cause even more damage. Apply a heat-protecting product before you blow dry. This will shield your hair with lightweight oils. And, it adds shine!
 
– Deep condition your hair year round! We can’t stress this enough. It will add shine and body to your hair.
 
– Add a finishing product to add more shine and body.
 
And, of course, get your hair trimmed regularly to get rid of split ends.
 
Need more tips? Just talk to us. We’re happy to help!

6 Hair Care Myths Debunked!

6 Hair Care Myths Debunked!

6 Hair Care Myths Debunked! By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
You’ve heard them a million times. Are they true or just fairytales? Well, here are the facts on 7 hair care myths:
 
– Brush 100 strokes for shiny, healthy hair. Nope. Brushing more than is necessary can cause excessive breakage, especially if you use a brush with plastic bristles.
 
– Prenatal vitamins help hair grow longer. We know women swear by them, but there’s no evidence to suggest they stimulate hair growth. Of course, pregnancy does that anyway.
 
– You can restore damaged hair to good health. We wish. There is no magic to heal or restore hair that’s been damaged. Just use good products that artificially add moisture until you can cut the damaged hair.
 
– A cold rinse keeps hair shiny and frizz-free. Cold water lays down the cuticle, yes. But blow drying and styling undo it.
 
– Shaving makes hair grow back thicker. Shaving acts on the hair shaft, which is already dead, not the follicle. It does not make hair more coarse or thick.
 
– You can train your hair. You probably already know the answer to this one. Whatever pattern you were born with is what you have to live with.
There you have it. Six pesky little myths officially debunked.

7 Ways Of Brushing Your Hair That Cause Real Problems

7 Ways Of Brushing Your Hair That Cause Real Problems

7 Ways Of Brushing Your Hair That Cause Real Problems By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
If you’re having problems with your hair like greasiness, static, split ends, or limpness, the cause could actually be your hairbrush!
 
“What”, you say?
 
It’s true! Sometimes the most confounding hair problem has the simplest solution. (Love that, don’t you?)
 
Here are the 7 most common culprits of unruly hair:
 
Brushing from the root to the tip. This pulls the hair out of the follicle snapping it. Instead, start at the bottom and comb or brush up, taking out tangles as you go. The key is smaller sections.
 
Brushing hair when wet. Oh, this is a BIG no-no! Your hair is filled with moisture, which causes them to stretch and makes the strands weaker. Let your hair air dry a bit before detangling.
 
Using a paddlebrush to detangle. Wet or dry, please do NOT use a paddle to detangle your hair; it’s just too harsh. Apply a detangling product first then use a wide-tooth comb.
 
Brushing your hair too much. Brushing your hair 100 strokes each night will do you more harm than good. Over brushing will cause breakage. Just eliminate the knots and you’re done!
 
Using the wrong brush. Go for a natural boar bristle brush instead of synthetic. It’s much gentler on your hair and it distributes your hair’s natural oils through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair.
 
Using dirty brushes. All that product buildup is coating your brush, not to mention the natural oils from your hair. That’s why hairbrushes should be washed once a week Need motivation? How about this: Do you really want to keep recycling oil and residue from weeks ago onto your clean hair?
 
Causing static with your brush. Over brushing can cause static from the friction. Dry hair can also be more static-y. Either spritz hairspray on your brush or rub a few drops of hair oil between your hands and then over your hair.

What Makes Your Hair Soft And Shiny?

What Makes Your Hair Soft And Shiny?

What Makes Your Hair Soft And Shiny? By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
In a word, keratin! This heavy-duty protein can make your hair look rich and touchable, or dry and brittle.
 
The reason? Keratin is on the front lines everyday, battling it out with over-colouring, perming, teasing, styling products, using a flat iron or curling iron regularly, and even just brushing your hair! Those everyday beauty staples deplete the keratin in your hair.
 
That’s why we recommend getting keratin deep conditioning treatments to keep your hair soft, shiny and resilient. It’s very simple and safe.
 
This quick-shot treatment instantly infuses dry, brittle hair with a heaping helping of what your hair craves most. Immediately, keratin begins to repair the damage and flaws, increasing shine and reducing frizz.
 
And remember, just like you, your hair needs a break! So put if up in a ponytail or use fun accessories to tie it back on “rest” days, which should be at least two days a week. And don’t forget to let you hair air dry from time to time for soft waves.
 
Beautiful hair isn’t hard to get if you’ll just follow these simple steps!
 
Next time: What’s The Fuss About Keratin Hair Straightening Treatments? This is a different service from the one we discussed today. We’ll talk about it next time.
 
Got questions? That’s what we’re here for. Schedule a free consult to learn more about keeping your hair shiny and beautiful every single day!

Remember her? The storybook princess with beautiful hair? You don’t have to be locked in a tower to get healthy, shiny hair, though. Start with what you eat!
 
Here’s a quick look at what your hair craves most.
 
Protein is a biggie because hair is 90% protein. Choose salmon for the omega 3 fatty acids, which can help prevent a dry scalp.
 
Then there are beef, lamb and oysters. These foods supply your body with zinc, a hair booster.  And, of course eggs, which are also a great source for vitamin B12 and biotin.
 
For healthy hair snacks, choose nuts like cashews, pecans and almonds, also full of zinc. But nuts, which have been maligned because of their fat content, have been wrongly accused.
 
Nuts are a rich source of good fats that your skin and hair need to thrive. Eliminate those fast food fats and eat nuts instead. Just watch what happens!
 
But here’s something we bet you didn’t know. To help protect your hair against loss and breakage, it needs the mineral, silica. Cauliflower and cabbage are excellent sources for this vital nutrient.
 
Before you take another bite of anything, be mindful! Just start noticing what you eat and how it makes you feel. You can change your eating habits. The trick is to do it gently.
 
Just remind yourself that every bite you take shows up in every bounce, curl and smooth look you’ve got!

The Hang Up With Curly Hair Care

The Hang Up With Curly Hair Care

The Hang Up With Curly Hair Care By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
When we hear curly girls bemoan, “I can’t do anything with my hair. I use the products but it’s still flyaway and dry. What am I going to do?” we can almost immediately guess the real problem.
 
It isn’t your hair and you don’t have to spend more money! Literally, the answer is in the palm of your hand.
 
It’s simple. You’re not using enough product! Your hair is drier and thirstier than any other hair type. So when flyaway, frizzy, and out of control hair are the order of the day, ask yourself two questions:
 
– How much product did I put in my hair?
 
– How long has it been since I deep conditioned my hair?
 
An honest answer to each of these questions will save you a lot of frustration. Remember, curly hair needs more product because of its texture. So use it!
 
Deep conditioning is a MUST to keep curly hair in tip-top condition. You just can’t skip these two maintenance steps if you want your hair to perform fuss free!

Correct These Hair Care Habits For Perfect Styling Days! By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
No, it isn’t easy to have perfect hair everyday. But there are a few styling habits that actually cause hair to scream, “I give up!” And then you’re screaming because you think you have the worst hair ever.
 
Hardly.
 
First of all, please don’t wash your hair every single day. This can be very drying. Go for every other day. Do use a clarifying shampoo every couple of weeks to strip the product buildup from your hair. This will make a huge difference.
 
Next, always remember your conditioner. This is essential for restoring moisture and making your hair more manageable.
 
Finally, make sure your hair is 80% dry before blowdrying. Add hair products that are designed to protect hair from heat and give your hair rest days between heat styles. This will help reduce split ends and dryness.
 
Getting rid of bad hair days starts with TLC at home! Just a couple of minutes here and there will give you beautiful hair everyday.
