We put our hair through a lot to get it looking awesome. In our salon, color services are up and it seems everyone has built a solid collection of wands and irons to keep up with the ever-changing styles. Inevitably, this will lead to hair and scalps that need a little extra love and attention. It is super important for us to keep the hair in shape, not only because it’s good business, but because it helps prepare our “canvas” for the next trend. So what do you do with dry hair and scalps? Here are a few of my salon’s go-to solutions.
1. If your client is feeling the effects of mechanical damage, it might be right to recommend something that will moisturize and replenish what's been lost. Heat styling over time dries hair and leads to moisture loss. If left unaddressed, the hair’s ability to retain moisture after it's been dried will decrease. Without moisture, the hair may lack the memory, shine, and softness needed to keep your client looking beautiful. If your client’s threads are feeling thirsty use something that will hydrate, nourish and return the hair back to its original elasticity and luster. A salon favorite for us has been Davines Vegetarian Miracle Conditioner. It's deeply moisturizing formula replenishes and hydrates brittle hair, leaving it stronger and more resilient.
2. With the demand of monthly color trends, I've found that my color services have increased dramatically. That means that my clients are at greater risk of the resulting color and chemical damage. Over long periods of time, the hair will get a little beat up. This leads to a loss in protein, the thing that gives our hair the strength to withstand chemical changes. This leaves the hair feeling brittle and prone to breakage. If your client is experiencing weak hair it may be wise to give a little muscle. Our salon loves to recommend Evo’s Mane Attraction. This deep conditioner is a protein re-constructor. Over time it helps to strengthen hair and prevent breakage and fading of color.
3. If you're looking for a great all-around deep conditioner for hair and scalp, check out Paul Mitchell Hair and Scalp Treatment. This deep conditioner moisturizes, repairs and protects the hair from future damage. A combination of exfoliating beads and menthol feeling leave the hair and scalp feeling extra refreshed!
