Simple things like regularly wearing your hair in a tight ponytail can cause tension damage and breakage around your hairline.
-Instead, try a looser ponytail or low bun!
Sleeping with wet hair can cause damage, breakage and fizziness due to friction.
-Instead try washing in the morning, or blowing out your hair before bed + use a silk pillowcase!
*Side note: If you have extensions, always remember to dry your hair post shower! The weight from the wet extension hair commonly causes breakage! Tools like blow dry brushes can make this 10x easier! We also love shower caps to keep our hair dry while showering in-between washes!
Heat is one of the top causes of damage to our hair. Whether you’re blow drying, curling or using a flat iron you should always use a lower setting AND using some type of heat protectant.
-Kevin.Murphy’s Heated.Defense + Shimmer.Me Blonde for extra protection!
Damage from over processing is common especially when trying to achieve a bright blonde. But we’re here to take the extra precautions to keep your hair healthy! Its very important to trust your stylist + trust the process! Nine times out of ten, when we see an inspiration picture that is blonde we will explain how blinding is a process and it may take a few sessions to achieve. This is because we don’t want to push your hair into something it can’t handle and cause breakage!
-Using salon grade products
-Doing a hair masque/treatment once a week
-Creating a hair plan to map out when you can achieve your end goal while still maintaining healthy hair
