In HAIRDRESSING / COSMETOLOGY hairstylists have many tips on how to take care of your hair. Our team have put together some basic guidelines for your daily hair maintenance routine.
Most people are not aware of how to select the correct shampoo/conditioner/hair treatment. This is mainly due to a lack of exposure to professional HAIRDRESSING/COSMETOLOGY practitioners. A lack of knowledge and understanding of hair types usually leads to incorrect choices.
A great starting point would be to complete a professional analysis done by a HAIRDRESSING / COSMETOLOGY practitioner to establish the condition of the hair and scalp.
Hair types are categorised into dry, oily, damaged, or chemically treated. The scalp could be dry, oily, sensitive, or scaly. A thorough examination will steer you in the right direction and make the world of difference to the condition of your hair and scalp.
For a dry hair type HAIRDRESSING / COSMETOLOGY practitioners recommend a moisturising/hydrating shampoo and conditioner. For damaged hair select a repair shampoo and conditioner and depending on the extent of damage a professional treatment would be recommended, these are normally protein based. If there is dandruff present, anti-dandruff shampoos should be selected. In more resilient cases, special liquid solutions are used and are highly effective. They are usually applied after shampooing, the hair will then be towel dried, and the solution is then applied to the scalp and left as a leave-on treatment. For hair with colour and or hi-lights, select a shampoo and conditioner for colour-treated hair. In cases where the yellow or brassy colour needs to be controlled for hi-lights, select a silver/purple shampoo and conditioner. Most hair products of today have been formulated with low Sulphates or are Sulphate free.
HAIRDRESSING / COSMETOLOGY stylists would recommend professionally formulated products available in Hairdressing salons to suit your specific needs, this will ensure the best results and eliminate the guesswork when purchasing over the counter.
