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.”

Caring for Dry, Brittle Hair

Anything from a cold wind to a scorching hot straightening iron can damage your hair, making it dry and frizzy. But before you simply resign yourself to lifeless, brittle hair, try these tips to help restore its healthy shine.

Stick with gentle cleansers. Harsh, chemical-filled shampoos can strip your hair of natural oils and make it even drier. Look for all-natural products made specifically for dry hair to help add moisture back in. Also, consider changing your shampooing schedule: Instead of washing your hair daily, scale back to once or twice a week to help preserve your natural oils and give your hair a rest.

Condition, condition, condition. Get the richest, most moisturizing conditioner you can find, and apply it liberally and often. Even if you’re taking a shampoo vacation, you can still wet your hair in the shower and apply your conditioner. Look for leave-in formulations that will moisturize your hair all day long.

Don’t forget the deep conditioner. In addition to daily conditioning, you should make time for weekly and monthly deep-conditioning treatments. Warm up hot oil (you can buy oil specifically made for the hair or use olive or other oils), massage it into your hair and scalp, then wrap your head in a hot towel and let the oil soak in for at least a half hour before you shampoo.

 

Avoid rough handling. All that combing, blow-drying, and straightening can take their toll on your hair. Avoid overscrubbing when you’re washing, let your hair air dry, and comb or brush only as needed.

 

Limit your processing. Coloring, perms, and other chemical treatments can dry and damage your hair even further. Go easy on your hair — put off the harshest treatments until your hair regains its health.

 

Don’t expose yourself. The sun, wind, and cold can dry out your hair. Wear a hat during the winter to protect it from the cold, and look into hair-care products with sunscreens to minimize sun damage.

 

Make sure you’re eating healthy. Brittle hair may be caused by a vitamin deficiency, so make sure you’re eating a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, lean meats, and dairy — and consider taking a multivitamin as well. Eight glasses of water each day will help hydrate your hair from the inside out.

 

Try an all-natural treatment. Mayonnaise, bananas, and avocados are all excellent moisturizers for your hair. Leave any of these on your hair for at least 15 minutes, then shampoo and rinse out.
