					If you watch the tabloids, you know that even the stars have bad hair days. It just seems
that when the professional stylists are out of the picture, it is inherently human to have a
less than glamorous mane. But you can do your part to stay ahead of the battle by
following these great tips for hair care.

1. Use a professional conditioner that is formulated for your specific hair type. While you
can skimp a little on the shampoo, a good, professional conditioner is a must have. Look
for products in salons that are customized for your hair type. For instance: If you have
color or a perm, choose a conditioner that is for chemically processed hair. And stay
away from those all-in-one shampoo and conditioner combos.

2. Choose a cut tailored to your face and body shape. The number one mistake that
people make when choosing a new hairstyle is to pick a style based on popularity rather
than how it will enhance their features. Always choose a new cut based on how it will
enhance or detract from your facial features and build. If you have broad shoulders,
choose a full-bodied cut over a close cropped head hugging doo.

3. Don’t forget your UV protectants. Just as your skin gets damaged by wind and sun, so
does your hair. To combat this, look for finishing products such as mousses, gels and
sprays that block UV rays.

4. Keep your appointments. Did you know that your hair will split faster than it will
grow? You need to get a trim every 6 to 8 weeks, even if it’s just a micro trim. A good
hairdresser makes them good because they know what to leave on the head, not take off.

5. Leave chemicals to the professionals. There is a reason why beauticians need to go to
school to learn how to handle chemicals and hair processes. You can do irreparable
damage with these products even if the package says that it’s way easy. And even if you
don’t make your hair fall out, you could end up looking like a clown and paying a stylist
big bucks to fix your mess. (Note: Most stylists charge double the rate for corrective
color than they do for normal color processes)

6. Get color for interest and body. Every cut needs a little bit of color to make it truly
breathtaking. No matter whether your taste is subtle or dramatic, you can add interest and
volume to your tresses with a color process. Highlights, lowlights, all over color, gray
coverage, you name it, it’s all good for your look.

7. Do weekly conditioning treatments. Even if your hair is extremely healthy, it is
constantly on the attack from wind, sun, cold and heat. During the summer months, your
hair is battered even more when it absorbs chlorine and other chemicals from your pool.

8. Get an ionic ceramic flat iron. Instead of frying your hair with a conventional metal
plated flat iron. Straighten your tresses, add shine and infuse moisture with one of the a
negative ionic flat irons. We personally use T3 irons for all our work.
9. Choose your styling products wisely. Avoid products that leave build-up on your hair.
If you see white gunk, that means that your product is not water-soluble and may be
coating your hair shaft. Build-up causes limpness, breakage and inability to curl not to
mention the white flakes.

10. Did you know that if you use a towel after your shower to dry your hair you are
causing split ends and adding static electricity to your hair. Don’t rub the towel back and
forth over your hair, scrunch the towel around your hair like your would scrunch crackers
in your soup.

While all of these tips won’t make you look like you’ve hired a personal hairdresser, they
will help you look the very best that you can each and every day. When it comes to hair
care, remember that you wear your hair everyday. Now isn’t it worth the time, effort and
money that it takes to keep it looking spectacular?
