We all know that sulfates in our hair products are bad for our hair and really bad for smoothing treatments, but not all “sulfate free” hair products are actually free of sulfates. Many times these products still contain dangerous sulfates disguised under different names like Diethanolime, Triethanolamine, and Monoethanolamine. These ingredients with wash your brazilian Blowout down the drain and chip away your Keratin treatment in a madder of a couple days!
Have you ever seen your salon products on Amazon and been shocked by the amazing deal? Yeah, so were we. The first question that comes to mind is, how are these sellers obtaining products only sold to licensed salon professionals?
We all love a good bargain. Nothing makes us happier than when we can get a much wanted item at a discounted price. Today we are going to talk about three reasons you don’t want to bargain hunt when shopping for hot tools.
Curling irons, straighteners, blow dryers, we all know they can damage our hair but that does not mean we can live without them. If and how your hot tools damage your hair depends on the tools you are using. Quality hot tools minimize damage, give you better results and last longer. It is essential that you invest in these quality tools to maintain and promote healthy hair in between keratin treatments. Also don't forget to add a heat protectant daily as well as use recommended styling products that provide your hair moisture and protection. Tools like straighteners use your hair's natural moisture to obtain the styles so it is essential we replace that moisture regularly.
When the summer season hits, we often worry about taking care of our skin and disregarding our hair. However, just as harmful UV rays can damage the skin, it can also damage your hair and scalp. Several summer factors can harm your hair including sweat, chlorinated pool water, sun rays, and sea salt. Leaving your hair unprotected can turn it lifeless, dry, and limp. Excessive perspiration can increase the chances of dandruff and dry out your hair. The heat can sunburn your scalp and damage your hair roots.
