Feeling greasy?

Do you shampoo every day? Have you ever tried not doing that? The natural oils that your scalp produces can be very beneficial to your hair by giving it the moisture that it needs. When you are washing it every day, you are stripping your hair of its natural oils. Most of you are already thinking that you need to do that every day because your hair and scalp is oily. You just know that if you don't wash it every day that you are going to look like a greasy mess. Guess what? You are wrong. Here is why.

It is true that some of us produce more oil and our hair, skin and scalp tend to have a higher shine than most. Just as others can be more dry. We all are different, and we all can benefit from not shampooing every day of our lives. If you tend to be on the oily side of the spectrum, you are actually making your problem worse by washing every day. By shampooing daily, you are stripping it, and you also are telling your pores to produce more to make up for the loss. Start foregoing the shampoo daily and go to every other day. This is going to trick your pores and help them slow down their production of oil. It will take a little time for this to work, and in the meantime I recommend that you use a dry shampoo or baby powder. Dry shampoo and baby powder will help to get rid of the shine and excess oil.

Why Buy Professional?

How many times have you left your salon and your hairdresser feeling and looking like a million bucks? The next day, you shower and attempt to style your hair exactly the same way only to quickly discover that it looks absolutely nothing like it did when they did it. Wonder why that is? Well, here are a few reasons.

Your stylist does this for a living, all day, every day. We are trained and experienced in all things hair. This is always a factor in this equation that you can't change. Hairdressers have the knowledge and experience along with the advantage of being at a completely different angle while styling your hair. There is a bit of truth to your feeling that you could never style it like him/her at home - you just can't. That said, a few things should happen in order to make your styling at home easier so that you can make sure your new haircut and/or color looks its best at home.
