Be Careful When Changing The Tone Of Your Blonde.

During your time with blonde hair. You have to be very careful when changing the tone or making it lighter.  Water especially in the Orlando area has a lot of chemicals in it. AND WILL ADD A YELLOWING TO YOU LOVELY BLONDE HAIR COLOR.

When changing your tone of blonde or going lighter remember blonde hair is the most fragile to work with. You have pretty much taken out a lot of the melanin in the hair shaft. And the shaft itself can become very weak and dry and brittle.

That is why it is good not to over wash the hair, especially with alkaline hair care products. Alkaline hair care products will swell up the cuticle of the hair and give you huge frizzy hair. And what will happen is you will end up using a lot of hair care products to just tame it down. And make it manageable.

Highlighting the hair over and over will cause dryness and breakage to the hair. You will loose tinsel strength and just unruly hair to work with. If you are at that period it is best to just cut it off. Here are some tips for you blonde hair and hair care advice.

  • Don’t wash you hair everyday. You can use condition on the shaft and ends of the hair and that will make it clean. And did you know conditions are just low grade shampoos.
  • Use a wide tooth comb to comb out the tangles and to apply treatments to the hair. A lot of people will use brushes on the hair to comb it out. DON’T. ESPECIALLY WITH BLONDE HAIR. THAT IS A NO-NO.
  • I highly recommend the Shea Moisture hair care line.

Towel dry the hair before placing any hair care products on. If there is too much moisture (water) in the hair it will dilute the hair care product. I will hope this has brought you some good advice.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Styling Lotion

Trying new products for color treated hair is important to me. And keeping a revolving product line for my clients is also very important. Using the same products over and over at the salon or at home will leave a build-up on the scalp and hair. It is good to change all your hair care tools all the time.

I have since tried the Shea Moisture product line often on my clients and have found out it works beautifully for highlighted hair. Especially for fine to medium types of hair textures.  Styling lotions are important for the blow-out of hair styling for the client and I personally do not like to use a lot of products on the hair. I feel the hair design is very important.

So a month ago I tired the Shea Moisture Styling Lotion and it worked great for my clients.

This precious oil based lotion protects while restoring moisture and lustrous shine to dull, damaged or chemically processed hair. Nutrient-rich Jamaican Black Castor Oil, certified organic Shea Butter and invigorating Peppermint combine in an ultra-moisturizing formula to protect against the damaging effects of high heat styling, while increasing hair’s resistance to breakage.

I applied a quarter sized amount in my hands and applied it to my clients hair, and combed the product throughout with a wide tooth comb. I gave her a blow-out and curled the hair and it did a very good job. Leaving the hair very soft.

When you have clients with high-lift hair-color the hair is very fragile so protection is needed. Stay away from protein based styling products and shampoo’s and conditioners for the hair. It will make the hair fragile and dry. Use moisture based products. Give this product a try at home or recommend it to your stylist. Shea Moisture.
