6 Effective Hair Maintenance Tips After a Salon Visit
You have just returned from the salon after your much-needed hair cut and hair treatment. Your new hair is gorgeous and healthy looking but until when? Perhaps, it will take another month or so before you can schedule for another appointment. But between today and your next salon treatment, what do you need for hair maintenance?
Here are 6 tips to maintain your beautiful hair after pampering yourself with salon treatment:
Do not be scared to ask questions
If you have been getting hair services from the same salon, your hair stylist will be more than willing to answer questions about proper hair maintenance, particularly on your new hair style and treatment. Apart from their expertise, your stylist knows about different hair types and more importantly, about your hair. You can ask for suggestions on how to take care of your hair.
Heed the advice from your hair professional
Once your stylist tells you what you need to do, follow it through. Also, try the products and techniques he or she will be recommending you to use, such as scalp treatments and hair blowing techniques. With years of experience and the myriad of hair products this hair professional has tried, there is no doubt it will work on you. There are a variety of natural hair products available even online that you can try, such as at-home hair treatments, shampoos and conditioners.
Do not over wash your hair
One of the mistakes people commit when it comes to hair maintenance is frequent hair washing. Know your hair type to determine the frequency of washing it needs. Over washing your hair can remove its natural luster. Moreover, hair products, if used too often can also affect the texture of your hair. And if you just had a color treatment, shampooing too often can make the color fade.
Ensure to use a product recommended for color-treated hair. And if you have just got colored your hair, ask your beauty salon expert on when is the best time to wash it. It is usually recommended to wash your hair after 48 hours to allow the color to set in.
Wash your hair with the right water temperature
According to experts, cold water is better for the hair in general but most importantly, after getting hair color treatment. Hot water can cause dryness on your scalp and brittleness to your hair. But if you did not have bleached or treated your hair with a color treatment, you can use lukewarm water every now and then to remove dirt easier. Some say that it can also balance your scalp to release lesser oil.
Use heat protectors
If you cannot refrain from using drying tools, see to it that you use a heat protector so as to maintain its moisture. Better yet, try drying your hair the natural way. If you will be using a hair dryer, set it on a cold mode.
Know when you should book for your next appointment
Ensure that you keep a regular schedule for your hair treatments. Your hair stylist can advise you on when is the right time to book your next appointment.
By following these tips, you can keep your hair looking great even days and weeks after your visit to the salon.
