Fall Colors

Keep in mind the change of season. When thinking about the fall colors, use it as a reference to some of the changes one could make with their wardrobe, makeup and hair color. I will go as far as advising my clients to where there hair a little longer, it’s the natural condition for staying a little warmer during the cooler days.

Fall Hair

 

This season,  spice up your fall look with colors that bring back what you knew more about when you were in your teens.  Fall colors would include, oranges with a hint of the pinks…salmon, and blues with a hint of  gray.

This would tie in the primaries with the sophistication of subtlety.

If you’re a blonde, try something with a hint of platinum..

How To Protect Your Hair From the Sun

Just like your skin needs protection from the sun, so does your hair.

Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen. Conditioner is another way. Conditioners after you wet your hair before you get into the sun is the best application.

Sunscreen can be greasy, but if you’re really concerned about sun damage, it’s another terrific way to protect your hair.

Highlighted Hair for Shampoo and Conditioner

Those with highlighted hair sometimes ask what shampoo and conditioner should I use?

My answer is, it depends. Most of the time, I recommend a shampoo that is not too emulsified or to clean.

Use a light weight shampoo and an acidic conditioner. This will help and condition the hair from different porosity families.

Your colored hair will be much more readily available to accept the conditioner than the hair that’s not. Therefore using something neutral will even the condition.

Why Does My Hair Look Green

Sometimes blondes who do a lot of swimming run into the issue of chlorine oxidization and green hair.

Before entering a pool, rinse hair thoroughly with water and add either a little bit of oil or hair conditioner to the hair. This will fill the hair with enough, it will serve as a buffer between the metals in the chorine and the hair.

If your hair is green, you can find a chelating shampoo, or a clarifying shampoo that will help wash out the green.

What Shade of Red Should My Hair Be

When coloring your hair, always remember that if the majority of your heritage is from the North, you are most likely fair in complexion. These parts of the world lend themselves to beautiful blondes and reds.

My rule of thumb, is to try and stay within the family of coloring coming from that latitude of the world. If you want to add red to your hair, consider the color of the Redheads in that part of the world. Most likely the color of hair will reflect the coloring of the skin. If there are no redheads in that part of the world, then your best bet is to stay with the coloring for that part of the world.
If you feel like adding red to your hair color, remember reds have many shades. Cool reds dominate a dark heritage, most likely you would require a warm or hot red if the people that come from that part of the world a more fair.

Blow Drying Hair

Today I’ll say a little something about the how to get the best results when  blowdrying  your hair.

It’s always best dry your hair at least 80% without a brush or comb. Hair is in it’s most vulnerable state when it’s wet. Hair stretches when it’s wet. Using a brush will sometimes pull on the hair to an access of eventually snapping. Therefore, I would recommend getting the hair close to dry before using a brush.

Frizzy Hair Problem

Recently I was asked why it is some people with curly hair have frizzy hair and some people don’t.

Well, the short answer is frizzy hair is usually a result of  the hair strands that fall away from the hair bunches. By keeping the all the hair bunched in it’s natural formation,  you are less likely to have hair that looks frizzy. The tools that help with this process are products that keep the hair bunched together. Gels, Pastes, oil bases and silicone bases usually help a tremendous amount when your hair gets out of control. Find out, in my next blog, what products I think could help.
