Hair Care – Hair Care – Hair Care!

Hair can become dry looking and loose pretty much all shine. Especially when the hair is over colored. Maintaining hair color and also leaving it with shine can be a nightmare. It comes to me working in a salon and the expectations of all clients can be so unreal at times. Photo-shopped photographs are a day in and day out experience and asking for unreal expectations during a one time appointment is shocking. But there will be stylists who cannot say no and will end up in my salon chair doing corrective hair coloring. Here are some tips if you have colored treated hair. Colored treated can and will lose its luster and shine if the hair is overly colored. I recommend to you less peroxide hair coloring THAN WHAT IT NEEDED.

Condition your hair after every shine shampoo. Shampoos weaken the hair’s outer cuticle layer while conditioners help to restore their natural smooth configuration.

Hair needs to be healthy to show its natural luster. The regular use of hair conditioners, shine shampoos and treatments goes a long way toward keeping the luster in your hair

The hair ends are especially prone to a loss of luster. If using a shine shampoo doesn’t help, cutting the hair ends regularly is a very efficient remedy for dull looking ends.

Also avoid stress to your hair structure as much as possible. Hair accessories such as scrunchies and bobby pins can harm the hair structure and dull your hair. Improper brushing or brushing too frequently also reduces the hair’s natural luster and steals the shine shampoo provides.

Use extra-gloss hairspray after styling. Modern styling products contains light-reflecting ingredients and can provide instant luster in conjunction with shiny hair shampoo.

Menopausal Hair Loss in Women

Haircolorinorlando.comAmong the many unfavorable changes women face during menopause, hair loss is one that contributes to the growing anxiety in menopausal women. But menopausal hair loss CAN be curbed and allow you to take menopause in stride. Here are some things you should know about menopausal hair loss and what you can do to control it.

1. Female hair loss can often be well combated when targeted early. Women usually notice a thinning over the crown or widening of the part, as opposed to men who get receding hair lines or bald spots on top of the scalp.

2. Hair is made of protein so it is essential you are getting sufficient amounts of it. Good sources of protein are egg whites, low-fat cottage cheese, lean meat, legumes, and nuts.

3. Non-dietary protein sources such as salon keratin treatments and protein-enriched shampoos are another way to deliver protein to your hair to avoid hair loss.

4. There are so many vitamins and minerals that we’re told to make sure we have enough of but which ones should we be focusing on for hair health and in particular, hair loss? Iron, zinc, biotin, vitamin A, are just to name a few  to keep hair healthy and strong.

5. You also may want to consider hair tools that use LED light to increase scalp circulation, which experts believe encourages protein-rich blood reach your hair.

6. You should also wear hat when you’re outdoors to protect your hair and scalp from the harsh sun. Consuming more vitamin E will also help keep your hair, skin, and scalp protected.

7. Ease up when brushing to be sure you’re not pulling out any hair. Avoid tight hairstyles or twisting, rubbing, or pulling your hair so as not to cause unnecessary stress to your hair and scalp.

8. Hair loss may come about due to hormonal abnormalities for some menopausal women. An excess of male hormones, for example could cause hair loss that looks similar to male hair loss. This can be treated by taking oral contraceptives. It’s important to talk to your doctor about your treatment options if you discover there is a hormonal imbalance.

9. When experiencing hair loss as a woman, it might be tempting to do all sorts of things to try and hide the fact. But adding harsh chemical products to dye, curl, or straighten your hair might exacerbate the problem. Try switching to more natural products.

10. There are medications that specifically target medication although most are used for male-pattern baldness. There are topical medications or pill forms, and all medication options should be thoroughly discussed with your doctor.
