5 WAYS YOU’RE APPLYING YOUR HAIR PRODUCTS WRONG

5 WAYS YOU’RE APPLYING YOUR HAIR PRODUCTS WRONG

1. You’re using way too much moisturizing cream, which can weigh your hair down.

Instead, squeeze a pea- to quarter-size amount of the hydrating leave-in product onto one of your palms, and then rub your two hands together like you would hand cream. That way when you apply it, the product goes through evenly and actually coats more strands.

2. You only spritz your hair a few times with heat protector after you towel dry.

It’s important to spray every section thoroughly that you plan to blow-dry, curl, or flat iron.  Also, make sure to concentrate on the face-framing pieces that get the most heat styling, so your hair doesn’t become dry and brittle from the heat.

3. You’re trying to smooth frizz by patting curl cream onto the top layer of your hair only. 

But what you should really be doing to battle frizz is rubbing a quarter-size amount of frizz serum, in your palm, taking random-size sections, and twisting your curls around and around your finger, so each curl gets wave-defining attention.

4. You hold the nozzle of your hairspray too close to your hair.

Spraying hairspray too close to your hair will concentrate the formula in one spot, leaving it crunchy and not touchable. Instead, hold a hairspray about 12 inches away from your hair, aiming it at an angle so that you get a light mist all over.

5. You apply your root-lifting product quickly at your roots and that’s it.

To get major volume, you need to not only apply a root lifter to damp hair at your roots, but also throughout your hair to build body and give it structure. Then, blow-dry your hair after to let the heat lock in the lift.

Got Dry Hair?

Got Dry Hair?

Dry hair is a real pain to deal with! It won’t hold curl, frizzes, and has little body or bounce.

Dry locks can be caused by many factors: your hair type, your styling habits, or how often you condition your hair. This hair type is literally screaming for extra tender loving care. So do just that!

You can start by giving your hair some “rest” days from so much styling. Put it up in a messy updo or use a fun barrette for some sass.

Deep conditioning weekly is a must. For an extra boost, talk to us about professional hydrating treatments. These will boost the results of your regular hair care considerably.

Make sure your shampoo is a hydrating one. This is essential! And do consider adding a quality hair oil or other smoothing product to renew body, bounce and shine.

Got specific questions? That’s what we’re here for!

How To Deep Condition Your Hair Like A Pro

How To Deep Condition Your Hair Like A Pro By Nevo – Hair Salon Mount Waverley Call Us On 03 9888 2701

All hair types benefit from deep conditioning. Having regular deep conditioning treatments is important because we need to replenish the natural hair oils that have been stripped off by too frequent shampooing.

Deep conditioning treatments also improve the health of coarse, damaged hair.  If your hair’s been damaged by box colour or chemical straightening, deep conditioning treatments are a must because they will help restore your hair’s natural moisture. For porous hair, protein-enriched deep conditioning treatments will make it softer and less prone to breakage.

To achieve the full benefits of  deep conditioning, you need to know how to deep condition your hair properly. Deep conditioning is different from everyday conditioning in many ways. So you can’t just slap it on for 1 to 2 minutes and expect great results.  And remember, deep conditioning treatments are specially-formulated with ingredients that penetrate the hair.

So if it’s successful deep conditioning you’re aiming for, here are tips on how to deep condition your hair like a pro:

– Get a deep conditioning treatment suitable for your hair type. Your stylist can assess your hair’s condition and give you sound advice on what type of deep conditioning treatment will give you fabulous results.

– Deep condition regularly. Schedule treatments at least once a week or once every two weeks. If your hair tends to be greasy and limp and you use regular conditioner every after wash, then a deep conditioning treatment twice a month is recommended.  For dull and dry hair, deep condition hair at least once a week.

– Allow the moisturisers and ingredients  to soak up and penetrate your hair. And how do you this? Leave your conditioning treatment on for at at least 30 minutes. And please do not overdo it. If the label doesn’t say “leave-in”, then don’t leave it on for hours or overnight.

Now that we’ve shared some tips on how to deep condition like a pro, it’s time to say goodbye to dry, coarse hair. Need more tips? Call us to book your appointment today!

Do You Have Dry And Frizzy Hair?

Do You Have Dry And Frizzy Hair? By Nevo Hair Salon Mount Waverley Call Us On 03 9888 2701

If your hair is dry and frizzy, then your hair may be of high porosity.  Porous hair is a result of hair damage.

When we regularly use heat styling tools or go for chemical treatments, our hair becomes very dry, fizzy, and porous.

Hair can normally absorb 30% of its weight in water.  But with very porous hair, the amount increases to 50%.  When this happens, damaged hair will swell and eventually break. Damaged hair also absorbs water easily but will lose it just as fast resulting in dry and brittle hair strands.

Furthermore, damaged hair is very difficult to style. Think of very dry and frizzy hair that’s very difficult to tame.

So, is there hope for dry, frizzy, and damaged hair?

Yes, there is. We cannot guarantee an instant fix but you will have frizz-free, healthy hair is you know how to take care of it.

To have frizz-free, healthy hair, we recommend:

using a paraben-free, sulfate-free shampoo

regular deep conditioning treatments

– regular trims to remove split ends

– letting your hair rest from heat styling tools and chemical treatments from time to time

– giving yourself a scalp massage each time you wash your hair

– using hair products enriched with ingredients that nourish hair

eating a balanced diet

– getting ample rest and sleep

Follow these simple tips and your hair’s condition will get better and better. No more dry and frizzy hair!
