Summer Rehab!

Bring your hair BACK TO LIFE! 

REHAB Your Hair!

After a season of soul affirming, hair damaging decadence, it’s time to kick the habit. It’s time to moisturize those dry, brittle hair or extensions from evaporating sun rays that cause hair dryness and damage. Hair damage starts at the tips of the hair and can slowly creep it’s way up, continuously breaking off! It’s time to fight!

You want: strong, healthy hair!

You have: fried, broken ends.

 

3 Easy Steps to “Rehab”:

1. Get a tiny trim! – I know how much fun it is for my long hair clients during the summertime to play with different styles (crown and side braids, beach waves).

The scissors are your best friend!

Years of growing out and cutting my clients hair, I recommend getting a “dusting” every 6 weeks.

Fun hair fact! Hair grows a ½ inch in a month, so in 6 weeks it has grown ¾ of an inch.

I cut ¼ inch off so split ends can’t move up the hair shaft and compromise even more of your length. Hair will still grow ½ inch a month.

2. Break old habits! Condition first!

Before you shower, when hair is dry, yes, I suggest applying 1 tablespoon of raw organic coconut oil with your fingertips massaging into hair, especially on the ends. You can continue this on your face, hands, cuticles and body as well. Let the oil penetrate for at least 10 minutes then, on top of the coconut oil, apply a moisture conditioner for another 10 minutes before shampooing! I love using Tigi’s “Urban Antidotes- Resurrection and Tigi Reborn’s Deep Restoration” conditioner or UNITE’S “Moisturizing and Pearl & Honey” conditioner. Their shampoo counterparts’  Tigi’s “Urban Antidotes- Ressurrection Shampoo and Tigi Reborn’s Deep Restoration” Shampoo or UNITE’S “Pearl & Honey” Shampoo are recommended to use in unison, which of course, we offer all products mentioned at Platino Salon.

Fun Hair Fact! Hair is like a rubber band.  It will snap if it is over-extended. Be gentle.

3. The NEW process- How to:

Wet the hair, apply conditioner with your fingertips and massage into the scalp and ends very gently. Leave in for a few minutes, rinse with warm water (not hot) and follow with a moisturizing shampoo! Rinse out thoroughly and spray in a leave-in-conditioner such as UNITE’S “7 Seconds” leave in conditioner (the best). By letting the hair soak this in, it will seal the moisture into the hair.

Some Fun Hair Study Facts:

* According to Dove’s Hair Care Study, 33% of women would give up social media for a year of good hair days.

* According to Style Seat Surveys, 91% of people surveyed say they feel a surge of confidence when their hair looks great!

 

I wish you the best of hair,
