How To Tame A Curly Mane

How To Tame A Curly Mane By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 4861 1120
 
If you don’t have them, you want them. If you do, you don’t. Ah, such is life!
 
But curls are all the rage and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. If you have curly hair, now’s the time to show off those locks!
 
Deep conditioning curly tresses every two weeks keeps them strong and shiny. To keep the bounce, don’t brush it! Brushing tends to make curls fan out causing them to look fluffy.
 
Comb your hair in the shower after you’ve applied conditioner. This will give those curls the moisture they need without making them go limp.
 
Curly hair is so versatile! Style it straight, curly or a mix of all three. But if you do decide to wear it straight, we recommend NOT using a flat iron.
 
This will just create more dryness and damage. Instead, opt for a smoothing product, a blow dryer and a large natural brush for beautiful results.
 
If you’re going au naturale and can’t let your hair dry naturally, opt for a diffuser on the roots. Always add a confident strut, girlfriend!

How To Care For Damaged Hair

How To Care For Damaged Hair

How To Care For Damaged Hair By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
 
It happens to all of us at one time or another. Too much “daily abuse” with curling irons, flat irons and blow dryers can cause hair to become damaged, not to mention trips to the beach, cold winter weather and rough treatment…the list is practically endless!
 
That’s why we’ve put together a primer for managing damaged hair until you have healthier hair days ahead:
 
Shampoo – Once hair is damaged, it can’t be repaired, but you can make it appear healthier.  In the interim, choose a shampoo that is gentle and is designed to treat damaged hair.
 
Because shampooing can make your hair drier, shampoo once or twice a week at most. Your stylist will need to do monthly trims to remove the damage.
 
Conditioner – Use a light leave-in conditioner to help minimise the unattractive appearance of dry hair. Also, deep condition once a week.
 
Style –Talk to your stylist about a haircut that can minimise the appearance of the damage while you’re growing healthier locks. Steer clear of colouring, perms, and relaxers during this time.
 
If the damage is severe, you might want to consider a short cut. Once the damage grows out, you can grow healthier, longer hair.
 
Don’t Make It Worse! Please, please! Do not make matters worse by trying to solve the problem yourself.  We love do-it-yourself projects, just not with your hair.
 
Believe us when we say that we’ve seen all kinds of damage through the years. Don’t go there!
 
We can give you excellent products and treatments to get you and your hair on the road to bouncy, shiny, healthy hair in no time!

The Dry, Brittle Hair Diet

The Dry, Brittle Hair Diet

The Dry, Brittle Hair Diet By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
 
Sometimes dry hair is caused by over styling, over colouring, and lack of  maintenance care. But, it can also be caused by dietary deficiencies. To strengthen your hair and your health, include vitamin A to act as a lubricant to reduce dryness.
 
Fatty fish like salmon, herring and mackerel are great natural sources of this vitamin, as well as carrots, red peppers, sweet potatoes, spinach, butternut squash and apricots. Yum!
 
But think twice about adding vitamin A as a dietary supplement. Too much can have an adverse effect on your body. It’s best to stick to food sources.
 
Vitamin B5 will help to restore dry hair to a healthy, shiny appearance. It also stimulates the growth and repair of your hair. Snack on nuts in moderation throughout the day and eat eggs, brown rice and liver.
 
And, of course, a great hair helper is protein as well as healthy fats like olive oil and avocado. Feeding your hair a good diet makes your appearance and our job so much easier!

Got Dry Hair?

Got Dry Hair?

Got Dry Hair? By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
 
Dry hair is a real pain to deal with! It won’t hold curl, frizzes, and has little body or bounce.
 
Dry locks can be caused by many factors: your hair type, your styling habits, or how often you condition your hair. This hair type is literally screaming for extra tender loving care. So do just that!
 
You can start by giving your hair some “rest” days from so much styling. Put it up in a messy updo or use a fun barrette for some sass.
 
Deep conditioning weekly is a must. For an extra boost, talk to us about professional hydrating treatments. These will boost the results of your regular hair care considerably.
 
Make sure your shampoo is a hydrating one. This is essential! And do consider adding a quality hair oil or other smoothing product to renew body, bounce and shine.
 
Got specific questions? That’s what we’re here for!

How To Look Youthful And Vibrant By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
 
Want to look younger and more vibrant? Of course! Good skin care, as well as skin care treatments, is half of the equation for exuding good health.
 
The other half? Your hair. Mother Nature did not create hair colour that is monochromatic, or just one colour. She meant for your hair to have depth and richness.
 
That’s the real beauty of hair. But as we age, hair becomes more monochromatic. That’s why highlights, lowlights, or both, are a wonderful addition to your anti-aging regimen.
 
Highlights, which are selected strands of hair that are lighter than your hair colour, are just like your hairstyle—very individual.
 
The current trend is for soft, subtle colour with less contrast. But rules and trends were meant to be broken! If you like high contrast highlights, go for it! The key is to bring in a picture of just what you want.
 
Lowlights are selected strands of hair that are painted a shade deeper than your hair colour. Both highlights and lowlights can be used together to enhance certain sections of your hair.
 
And that’s the fun of it! You and your stylist can discuss the look you want and how to get it. Sun streaks? Chunks?  Painted?
 
Tell us your pleasure. We know you’ll walk out of the salon with just what you want.

Every woman wants to be skinny, but it’s the last thing she wants when it comes to hair.
 
So what do you do if Mother Nature didn’t get the message? You fight back, and it all starts with the cut. Without it, nothing else will work well.
 
That’s why we talk to you about your hair texture, what you want to achieve with it, and how your cut will get you the results you want.
 
After the cut, follow our styling instructions and:
 
• Use a volumising shampoo to add thickness
 
• Condition with care, avoiding silicone ingredients that can weigh down your hair and flatten volume. We’ll show you the products that work best
 
• Use light styling products like mousse
 
• Target your roots for lift with a volumizing spray. This will give the appearance of more hair
 
With our expertise combined with the right products and styling, your hair can look full and beautiful!

5 Essential Steps For Beautiful Silver Hair!

5 Essential Steps For Beautiful Silver Hair!

5 Essential Steps For Beautiful Silver Hair! By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
 
We love them, don’t we, those little blue-haired ladies with the big purses?
 
Love them, yes, but we don’t want to look like them!
 
To keep grey locks looking bouncy, sassy and shiny, takes commitment to maintenance. Here’s what we recommend:
 

  • First, talk to your stylist about your specific silver fox needs. If you’re easing out of colour, you’ll need a plan. Opt for highlights or lowlights to help grow out the colour.
  •  

  • Grey hair is wiry, dry and brittle.  And it’s sensitive to the elements! Get regular in salon deep conditioning treatments followed by weekly at home deep conditioning treatments.
  •  

  • To counteract yellow, get a violet – based glossing treatment in the salon every 6-8 weeks.
  •  

  • Use a violet – based shampoo that’s moisturising to calm down the dryness.
  •  

  • Use a clarifying shampoo weekly to remove pollutants and the effects of cigarette smoke (if you’re around any).
  •  
    With the same commitment given to any hair type, you can rock sexy, silver locks! As always, if you have questions, just ask. We’re here to help!

    “What Can I Do About My Thinning Hair?”

    “What Can I Do About My Thinning Hair?”

     “What Can I Do About My Thinning Hair?” By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
     
    Thinning hair has many causes including side effects of certain medications, illness, stress, over use of cosmetic hair products, and improper hair care.
     
    But the common thread through any of these possibilities is always nutrition. Once you consult a dermatologist to find out what is causing your thinning hair, then it only requires a small amount of effort on your part to correct it.
     
    Healthy hair starts in the kitchen! Make sure you get plenty of omega 3 fatty acids to strengthen and promote hair growth. Fish such as salmon, sardines, cod and mackerel are excellent sources, as well as flax seed.
     
    Healthy hair needs GLA, gamma linoliec acid, to strengthen the hair shaft and keep it thick. Black current oil in capsule form contains plenty of GLA, and it’s widely available.
     
    Another excellent source is coconut oil. Just massage it on your scalp during the week to help combat thinning hair. Taking care of your hair, just like your health, is a commitment. One that pays you back daily!

    When Your Hair Turns Wiry and Brittle

    When Your Hair Turns Wiry and Brittle

    When Your Hair Turns Wiry and Brittle By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
     
    As we age, our hair goes through a natural ageing process as well.  The first few significant changes we’re going to notice is that it’s not as shiny as it used to be or that it breaks easily. It’s also a lot drier and coarser.
     
    So what do you do if your hair starts to turn wiry and brittle?
     
    First, find a shampoo that’s specially formulated  for your hair type. Choose one that cleanses hair thoroughly without drying it out.
     
    Next, get regular deep conditioning treatments.  Deep conditioning is essential as it will nourish hair and maintain moisture, reducing dryness and brittleness.
     
    Treat yourself to a regular scalp massage. A scalp massage helps remove product build-up and improves circulation and oil production, improving overall hair health.
     
    It’s also important that you maintain a balanced diet to keep your hair healthy and shiny as you age gracefully.
