Here are little tips to help you at home to maintain your hair in between your visit to your stylist:
1/ Bend over and brush your scalp and hair from back to front until the scalp tingles to help distribute the natural oils in your hair.
2/ Use no more than a quarter-size dollop of shampoo, and rub it between your palms first. Lather your hair for no more than 30 seconds
3/ Find a shampoo that is less sudsy. Sudsy does not necessarily mean clean. Shampoos that lather too much are often overloaded with moisturizing products, which can leave build-up in your hair.
Avant-Garde salon and spa recommend Kerastase.
4/ Dampen your hairbrush before brushing to cut down on static electricity. Avoid using a brush on wet hair because it creates hair breakage.
5/ After you have finished shampooing, rinse your hair with cool water to seal moisture in the hair.
6/ Wash before you use color. It is a myth that unwashed hair takes dye better than clean hair.
7/ Many volume-enhancing products are heat activated. Instead of merely coming or scrunching them in, aim warm air at your roots, activating the stylers and giving your hair the volume you desire.
8/ Towel-dry your hair thoroughly before using a hair dryer. This will save you time and avoid damaging your hair with unnecessary heat.
9/ Apply products 10-15 minutes before you style. Whether you are curling or straightening, apply the product at least 10 minutes in advance to ensure it is fully absorbed into your strands.
