maintaining hair health: the foundation of beautiful hair.
"As a hair stylist, when a new client comes in for a color consultation it’s my job to make sure that their hair is healthy enough for the color process. One thing I do immediately during this consultation is touch their hair. This is because I’m looking to see how it feels in my hands and see how hydrated their hair feels and how the scalp looks. When it comes to hydrating hair that process begins at the shampoo bowl and what you are washing your hair with makes a huge difference. For my curly hair clients for example they would want to be using a moisturizing shampoo. I always say if your hair doesn’t feel soft after a shampoo you are using too harsh of a shampoo.", Crystal shares.
the importance of protecting bonds and preventing damage.
"Our hair is made up of hydrogen, ionic, and covalent bonds and one way of damaging our hair is by breaking those bonds. You can do this in a lot of different ways which include excessive heat styling, and chemical services. There are lots of products on the market to help repair the bonds in your hair but the most important thing to do is to stop whatever is damaging the hair to begin with. Split ends are also an issue with hair health and length retention. Your hair will grow but if you never cut your split ends off then they will continue to split up the shaft. When that happens your hair will break and you will continue to see no growth."
