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.

How Summer Weather Affects Your Hair

How Summer Weather Affects Your Hair

In winter, your hair was screaming for moisture. Now it’s limp as a dishrag! Needless to say, the weather has a tremendous influence on your hair.

Summer means more time outdoors. That means more exposure to heat and humidity. Naturally straight hair will collapse curls, while flat ironed naturally curly hair will revert to its original state…plus frizz.

Here’s something you may not have understood about moisture and hair.

You actually need moisture to combat and balance out humidity.

The trick is not to have the moisture level greater than the moisture in your hair. If it is, your hair will “reach out” toward it, creating frizz. And then, of course, there’s sun damage to contend with.

What can you do? Relax. We have a plan.

1. Clarify regularly. In the summer, the hair’s cuticle is more likely to absorb everything around it. That’s why clarifying is so important. It removes product build up and moisture. Talk to your stylist about how often you should use a clarifier on your locks.

2. Use a gentle shampoo. Put aside winter’s heavier cleansers. You don’t need the additional moisture now. Your stylist is familiar with your hair type and texture. She can recommend a lighter weight summer shampoo.

3. Use lighter hair serums. In the winter it was all about heavier crèmes for your tresses. Now it’s time to lighten up. Again, your stylist can be more specific with you.

4. Deep condition weekly. We actually recommend this year round! Deep conditioning penetrates dry, chlorine or sea salt damaged hair for more shine, bounce and styling manageability.

And, of course, get regular trims for healthy, happy hair. Got other questions? Just let us know. We’re happy to help. Call Nevo Hair Design on 03 98882 2701.

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!
