Any story about hair care should be about protection because beautiful hair starts with healthy hair.
Don’t shop in haste. Read the small print. Manufacturers are anxious to share all the details about what their product can deliver. So, when you’re shopping, check each label to see if the promised result solves your specific problem.
Pay attention to advertising, too. This tells an even more detailed story about the product. Technology is moving so quickly that we all need to pay attention.
We all like to play with hot tools to get curl (or get rid of curl) and achieve the bounce we want. But we’re inviting trouble if we don’t take steps to protect our hair from extreme heat. There are heat protection products that shield hair from super hot tools such as heated rollers and irons. Protection is a necessary first step to good hair.
Some hairsprays are formulated to take heat while still delivering flexibility, hold and workability. Caution: beware of sprays that, with repeated brushing, shower flakes on your shoulders.
Look for mousse that protects hair. Do some comparison shopping for the right mousse that is airy, gives long-lasting hold, intense volume, and protects against damage.
For shine, rely on the new shine enhancers. These are infused with oils, are lightweight and, ideally, can be used on either wet or dry hair.
