Day of Rest

Our hair sure does take a beating with all that we do to it. Most of you wash it every day (you need to stop doing that), blow-dry, curl, flat-iron and spray hairspray on it. How many of you really give it a day of rest? Let's start this Sunday and continue every Sunday with giving your hair a break from all of that and a little TLC.

Hair products, minerals in the water and toxins in our environment build up on our hair. Even though I don't want you to wash your hair every day, I do want you to use a clarifying treatment once a week to cleanse your hair off all the buildup. This buildup will cause you to have bad hair days and will also leave your color look dull and even brassy. With summer coming (it has to get here eventually, right?) this is definitely something you want to include in your hair care regime right along with your kiddos who swim in the pool. Using a clarifying shampoo will gently cleanse your hair from the inside out. Ask your hairdresser what they recommend or simply use a baking soda rinse at home (baking soda paste mixed with water or your daily shampoo). Don't just go get any old clarifying shampoo from the store down the street. Many of those are way too harsh on your hair. The point to clarify your hair is to properly cleanse it, not 'strip' it and make it dry and brittle. Always ask a professional.
