Hair spray or dry shampoo for on location photo shoots.

joseph kellner salon

When I am working on set it is important to choose the right styling product to use on the hair, if not I am screwed. During the very first shoot I am more willing to use a dry shampoo to create body in the hair and it will also give me a little holding factor for the first group of photographs. Using a working hair spray is fine if I am curling the hair or changing the style with the dress changes. But too much hair spray will drag down the hair and make it useless to recreate a style or change it.  I like to use the TIGI Dry Shampoo or the Victoria’s Secret Dry Shampoo, both are very nice to work with and also they both have some very nice scents.

Joseph Kellner SalonLayer TIGI Pro Day 2 Dry Shampoo through the hair and then blast through with a hairdryer for an even dispersal and a natural feeling. I can spray it in the hair and set the hair with hot rollers, curling irons, pencil sticks, etc and will get a great amount of volume and if I am working outside or in a well lighted studio any scalp sweating will all be absorbed. There is no feeling of build up with the product and it is easy to comb through. Wonderful to use at home for in between shampoo’s.

  • Adds volume and texture
  • Refreshes the hair
  • Absorbs excess oil

TIGI PRO Day 2 Dry Shampoo is perfect to use between washes. Instantly refreshes the hair, absorbing excess oil and adding volume and texture. I recommend it for in salon usage and also for on set photography.  And by the way the Victoria’s Secret Dry Shampoo Is Discontinued.  Shit!!!!

Orlando Hair Salon Advice on Frizzy & Dry Hair from Joseph Kellner

 Dry hair is a common problem for many people, especially those with thick or curly hair. Shampooing too frequently, using harsh shampoos and styling products, coloring and perming are all harmful to your hair. In addition to that, you expose your hair to chlorine, sun, wind and heat. Factor in, too, the damage you get from hair dryers and curling irons. Proper care and regular conditioning can fix even severely dry and frizzy hair. 

Shampoo Less, Condition More

Avoid shampooing your hair more than twice each week unless your scalp is dirty or sweaty. Shampoo contributes to dryness by stripping away the natural oils produced by your scalp. Choose shampoos and conditioners that contain humectants to lock in moisture. Deep condition hair at least once per week. To reduce frizziness, rinse your hair with cold water, which makes the hair cuticle stay flat so that hair appears smoother.

Take Care of Your Hair

Improper styling can increase dryness and lead to broken hair and scalp irritation. Do not rub your wet hair with a towel after showering. Instead, wrap a towel around your hair and leave it in place for 10 to 15 minutes to absorb excess water. Once your hair is partially dry, detangle it using a comb or your fingers. If you must blow your hair dry, do so on low heat and in a downward motion to reduce frizz. Avoid using flat irons and curling irons whenever possible, and choose styling products with sunscreen to protect your hair from sun damage.

Avoid Over-Processing

Over-processing with hair coloring and perms is a major cause of dry hair. To avoid chemical damage caused by perms and coloring, use hair products without peroxide and ammonia and wait as long as possible between processing. Newer hair coloring products contain conditioners that may actually benefit dry and frizzy hair.

Use Essential Oil

Essential oils can restore moisture to dry hair and help control frizz. The Joseph Kellner website recommends Argania oil for use on dry hair, as it contains essential fatty acids to attract and retain moisture in the hair’s cortex. Apply one to two drops of oil to dry hair, using the palms of your hands. Start at the ends of the hair, where dryness is usually most pronounced, and work your way up toward the roots. If your hair is too oily following application, you have used too much oil. Remove excess oil by rinsing with apple cider vinegar after shampooing. Avoid using non-essential oils on dry hair, as these coat the hair and actually interfere with moisture absorption.

Joseph Kellner Tips for Dry Hair

If you’ve lightened, dyed, straightened or permed your hair, or even if you blow it dry regularly, it can become dry and brittle. Over-processed hair can suffer from split ends and damage to the cuticle, which makes it break easily and appear dull. To heal and protect your hair, try these simple techniques that can help it regain its luster and length.

Be Gentle

The best thing you can do for overprocessed hair is to cut back on harsh treatments. Joseph Kellner’s soon to be published book to healthy hair recommends that you avoid hot styling tools. “All that combing, blow-drying, and straightening can take their toll on your hair.”  You should avoid coloring, perms and chemical treatments, and even protect your hair from the sun, until it regains its health. I highly recommend Kalea Rose Passion Treatments mixed also with  Kalea Rose Argenia Oil for weekly home hair care treatments.

Use a Mild Shampoo

Shampoo twice a week. Joseph recommends using products that contain moisturizing ingredients. A gentle shampoo such as La Rose sulfate free shampoo will help your hair retain the natural oil it needs to keep from drying out. When shampooing, avoid “overscrubbing.” And  you should apply conditioner to the ends of your hair before you shampoo, so they are better protected and easier to work the product throughout the hair. This will help eliminate breakage from over shampooing!

Condition and Oil

“Condition, condition, condition,” Joseph Kellner advises. Even on days when you don’t shampoo, rinse your hair and apply conditioner, or use a leave-in formula such as Kalea Rose Revive leave-in conditioner. But realize that your hair can absorb only a limited amount of conditioner. Using a large amount is not necessary. On a weekly basis, I recommend a mixture of Kalea Rose Passion conditioner and Argania oil as a home hair care treatment.  Warm it up, massage it into your hair and scalp, and let sit at least half an hour to replenish your hair’s shine. You can also use Argania oil for blow drying!

Get a Trim

A haircut can help your hair’s overall health. While you wait for the damaged area to grow out, keep your ends trimmed to reduce your chance of split ends. Split ends occur when your hair cuticle becomes damaged, and they can travel up the strand to give you frizzy hair.
