Haircolor Advice

Dirty hair has nothing to do with hair coloring!

Clients will always ask me if they need to wash their hair before they come in for a hair color service. And I am not talking about cement, mud on the hair and scalp.  The answer is no. Hair color, perms, highlights, are all chemical services that are done in the salon and only in the salon.   A buildup of oils, dirts in the hair will not be able to overcome the chemical strength of hair color or bleaches, or perms. They will not alter the chemical process of lifting or altering the hair structure of the chemicals being used in the service.  in fact when clients come in to have a hair color service and the hair is wet the only thing that will cause a problem is the time spent blow drying the hair to proceed with the hair coloring service. And that is a fact Jack!  Dirty hair (second day, third day is fine) makes it easier for the colorist to place foils in your hair. The natural oils also help protect your scalp from possible irritation the color could cause.  Hair color is stronger than oils, and dandruff, dirty hair. etc.. Hair is a chemical and I have seen it clear off the scalp of and all natural oils and day to day grease and grime.

*EXCEPTION – The only exception to  NEVER shampoo rule is chlorine. If you go swimming in a chlorinated pool the day of your color appointment, you must shampoo the chlorine out or there could be some funky results when the color reacts with the chlorine!

Damaged hair advice in orlando by Joseph Kellner

Hair is made up of keratin, the same protein that makes up finger and toenails. Just like nails can crack, split and become dry and brittle, so can hair. Hot hair dryers, scalding curling and flat irons, and constant brushing damage hair, as does ultra-violet sun rays and chemicals in perms and relaxers. Fortifying hair with products that increase strength and durability helps prevent damage and improves dry, damaged hair. This is especially important information to all of my salon clients since a good amount are corrective haircolor.

 In my salon we use Kalea Rose Platinum Shampoo  The detergents in shampoo strip hair of natural oils and because hair is at its most vulnerable when wet, shampoo can further damage weak hair. Use dry shampoo with detergents that clean damaged hair and cornstarch to absorb the natural oils produced by the scalp. Dry shampoo comes in a spray or powder.
Most people with damaged hair only need to shampoo their hair two or three times a week. Shampoos that say volumizing, clarifying, balancing, oil control, or thickening remove oily buildup and clean dry and damaged hair gently.

 In my salon we use Kale Rose Passion Treatments  Your best option for severely damaged hair may be treatment at a salon. Ask about a deep steam treatment that uses oils and conditioners with steam to penetrate the hair cuticle. A salon steam treatment seals the cuticle around the hair shaft, so your hair will stay hydrated longer.

In my salon we use Kalea Rose Revive Spray Conditioner. Split ends occur when hair follicles become weak and the cuticle–the membrane that coats the hair–wears away. Applying a leave-in conditioner to dry hair will coat the follicles making them more durable. Those with straight, thin hair need to be cautious, however, since many leave-in conditioners can weigh hair down and make it look oily. Conditioning also protects the hair follicle. Because conditioner is partially washed away in the shower, applying a leave-in conditioner when hair is dry will give damaged hair added protection from ultraviolet rays and damaging too.

Consider getting a short cut and style if your hair is seriously damaged. This removes the worst damage and split ends, leaving the healthiest part of your hair to re-grow. The hair nearest the roots is not as damaged as the ends, and it will recover quickly. Cease chemical use while your hair grows out, and your new tresses will be healthy. If you decide to perm or use chemical coloring and styling products again, choose gentle products with extra moisturizer. Look for label information telling you that the product was designed for damaged hair.

Kalea Rose Hair Care is a exclusive line in my salon “Kalea Rose will not sell our products to beauty supply, grocery, drug or any other stores that are not professional salons. Hair companies have lied to salon owners labeling their products as salon only. Yet, they allow their products to be sold at non-professional places. This takes away from the salon industry and places products in the hand of the consumer without proper professional advice about application and use.”
