Healthy Hair Game Plan

With a good healthy hair game plan, we can all avoid dull color, split ends and limp locks!  Trichorrhexis nodosa is the technical term for broken hair, which is most likely fragile and damaged hair strands…which we want to avoid.  

 

Traditional coloring and continuous heat styling can create gaps on the outer cuticle layer.  These gaps can cause

  • Color fadage
  • Dullness
  • Hair breakage
  • Split ends
  • Frizzy Hair

 

Healthy Hair Game Plan

  • Quality products – gentle products with good ingredients
  • Pump up the protein or moisture – eliminates frizz and dryness while strengthening and moisturizing with weekly treatments at home
  • Strive for more stretch – treatments done at home on a weekly basis provides better elasticity. Better elasticity creates body and shine
  • Close the cuticle – styling products that do not build up, but protect and close the cuticle, are key in day to day styling
  • Dust the ends – get regular TRIMS so that split ends do not travel up the hair shaft 

In addition to strengthening, moisturizing and protecting your locks, your hair needs to be fairly elastic.  Elasticity prevents breakage when detangling and blow dry styling. Your hair is not a pair of jeans that you can take off and wear another day.  Be kind to your hair!
