Luscious Hair Secrets

Ever wondered why some people have luscious, shiny, radiant healthy hair that never looks out of place, and why you don’t? A healthy hair makeover is surprisingly not too hard to achieve. All you need to do is learn some healthy hair secrets and apply them to your daily routine.

Great Hair Starts with a Good Cut

A professional haircut will ensure that your hair is free from dry,damaged and spit ends and will make your hair look healthy. Seeing a professional will also give you the opportunity to get the right cut for your hair type and texture. Follow up visits which include regular trims every 6-8 weeks will also guarantee that your hair will look and feel its best.

Color touch-ups

If you get your color touched up on a regular basis about every 5 to 6 weeks you may actually keep your hair from unnecessary damage. Not waiting too long means your stylist won’t have to dye your whole head due to color fading. Also make sure to only use the top of the line color to ensure shine and consistency. Poza salon prefers Wella Koleston Perfect and Wella Color touch.

Lukewarm Water

A lot of people damage their hair with very hot water. Hot water can irritate and dry the scalp. Not to mention how it will overstimulate the oil glands in your scalp. Go for warm instead. Wash your hair every other day or even every third day. If your hair is oily, in which case you can use a little baby powder to soak up the oil.

Product Placement

Choose the right products for your hair. Use shampoo designed for your type of hair. Do not put the shampoo in the middle of your hand and push it into the middle of your scalp. Rub it on your hands to evenly distribute. If you have acne, remember that shampoo can cause more acne. Rinse your face, neck and back thoroughly after using shampoo. Use hair conditioner which is formulated for your hair type. Conditioning your hair is vital to keeping your hair healthy and beautiful. If you’ve styled with the right products for your hair type and washed with the right shampoo then your hair should be naturally shiny and manageable. If it’s not, see your stylist and get an expert opinion on what will work best for your hair.

Moisture Madness

To get dry and frizzy hair under control try an intensive conditioner (Wella Power Mask or Kevin Murphy’s Born Agian) once a week to keep your locks moisturized and to keep your hair soft. To get the best from your deep treatment, apply it to your hair then cover with plastic wrap or a plastic shower cap and leave for ten minutes before rinsing out. This will add heat and allow the treatment to penetrate. For a deeper condition, wrap a warm towel over the plastic wrap.

Shiny hair doesn’t have to be genetic

Stylists know the secret to sheen comes in many forms. You can opt for an in salon glazing treatment (which will last up to 4 weeks) or use a drops of smoothing serum before and after styling. Great for Dry, Frizzy hair!

Product Overload

Don’t use too many products. Product overload will weigh your hair down and make it look tired and greasy. Remember this rule: One product to style and one product to finish with.

Don’t bring out the brush too soon

Never brush your hair when it is wet. Brushing can break hair. Use a comb and pick up sections of your hair to comb easily and carefully. You want to make sure your fingers glide through hair effortlessly before introducing a brush to wet or even damp hair.

Pat your hair dry

Vigorous towel drying actually damages the hair shaft. Put the towel on your head into a turban but, when you take it off, pat the hair in between the towel instead of rubbing your head with it. If you must use blow dryer, set it on low.

Heat Styler Hazard

If you use a heat styler such as a hair-dryer, straightener or curling iron, then make sure to apply a heat protection product first such as Kevin Murphy’s Body Guard. Heated stylers can zap your hair of moisture and leave your strands frizzy and hard to manage.

Extra Tips

Healthy Hair Is Hydrated Hair – Drink plenty of water. Water not only hydrates your skin and body, it also hydrates your hair.

Sleeping Beauty – When you are sleeping your body is working its hardest to repair damage, including any hair damage, so plenty of sleep is a must. To further help your hair achieve its healthy best, try sleeping on a satin pillowcase. This will stop your hair from rubbing as you sleep and will control fly-aways.

Balanced Eating – Of course eating a well-balanced diet which is full of healthy proteins and lots of vitamins will keep your hair glowing.
