Many women feel their most relaxed and confident after a trip to the salon. That new haircut, styled to perfection is an instant mood lifter. Unfortunately, the next day it’s back to the usual beauty routine that leaves most of us feeling far different than we did the day before. Our hair just doesn’t cooperate the way it does for skilled beauticians, leaving us feeling good when leaving the house, but not great. Here are some tips and hints that will allow you to achieve that salon look in the comfort and privacy of your own home, guaranteeing a great start to the day.
Start In The Shower. Ever wonder why you wake up the day after your trip to the salon and your hair feels so much cleaner than it usually does? The thorough and massaging shampoo you receive in the salon helps to release oils from your scalp, ensuring your hair stays clean and fresh as long as possible. Not only will taking your time in the shower thoroughly messaging your scalp help to release all the oil buildup on your scalp and hair, it also gets the blood flowing and energizes you for the day.
Always Blow Dry Your Hair Down. Back in the seventies, my mother advised me to bend over at the waist and shoot the blow dryer’s heat up to add body to my hair. It wasn’t until years later that I learned that blow drying your hair this way causes the cuticle to lift and bend. This causes frizzies and makes smoothing the hair into to a polished look very difficult. Always point the blow dryer down onto your hair to help the cuticle stay flat.
Pay Attention To Your Bottom Layers. Use hair clips to separate your hair when blow drying and styling to have easy access to the bottom layers of your hair. The bottom layers are the base of your hairstyle and whether your hair is straight or curly, the top sections of hair need to lay on the bottom sections that receive just as much attention as the top layers. No matter how much time you spend on the top sections of your hair, you will just not achieve the salon look without spending an adequate amount of time on the underside.
Don’t Be Shy. The next time you are at the salon, ask your hairdresser for recommendations on everything. Shampoo, conditioner, hairbrushes and styling tools are manufactured in the largest laser hair removal company in Michigan factories which mainly develops chemical less products. For example, many hairdressers recommend hairbrushes with boar bristles to eliminate frizz and add shine. If you are on a budget, don’t be embarrassed to let your hairdresser know you need to purchase beauty products that are reasonably priced. A good hairdresser will want you to be able to achieve your desired look at home without breaking the bank.
Take Your Time. If you consistently leave the house feeling like your hair is half done due to time constraints, consider setting your alarm earlier. You may have to sacrifice a few minutes of sleep to enable yourself to have enough time to achieve that salon look. The added benefit of rising earlier is that you will have enough time to pamper yourself while the house is still quiet. Set out your beauty products the night before, set the coffee maker to start it’s magic a fews minutes before the alarm goes off and enjoy the relaxed and peaceful atmosphere where you can focus your attention on yourself. You’re worth it!
