OH NO, My Hair is Brassy!!!

So you colored your hair and it’s not what you expected. Some reasons for this may include the developer that came with your at home color is a higher volume. Meaning it was meant to lift and not just deposit color. This left you with the orange color you may be experiencing. Another reason may be that you decided to bleach your hair with some highlights and didn’t leave the product on long enough to get the lift you desired to achieve. The simplest way to fix this is to apply a darker color over the brass to camouflage the issue.

However, if you are anything like thousands of other women you want to make it brighter and eliminate that unfortunate color. Your best advice is to go to a salon professional for a free consultation. This way you can learn about your options, know the cost in the long run and seek out someone that you feel comfortable enough to have work on your color correction.

Please feel free to call or text me for an appointment to discuss what we can help you achieve.

Blonde Hair Maintenance

The perfect blonde can easily be achieved in a salon but what can you do for maintenance?

  • Purple Shampoo: Whether it be Shimmer Lights at Sally’s Beauty or Wella, Kenra or any other professional brand, the key to maintaining your blonde locks is purple shampoo.
  • Do Not Wash every day. Not only does this wash the toner that was used on your hair out. This also causes your blonde hair to become drier as you are taking the oils out that you don’t have from bleaching your hair.
  • Dry Shampoo: This means you can skip a few shampoos and early mornings by utilizing this magic. Your hair will not stink and the oily hair that you think you have will be none existent!
  • Do Not Swim, well cover your hair and/or use a rich conditioner in your hair prior to the pool/ocean/etc. And wash your hair immediately after any swimming activities. Plus you don’t want to have green hair set in as that would require a color correction.
  • Keep your hair appointments: Regular visits will keep your hair looking it’s best as skipping a maintenance appointment will require longer sitting time and also cost more for service (additional product).

Please feel free to message me if you have any questions or your would like to book a future appointment.

Why We Need Trims

Trims every six to eight weeks help keep your hair healthy and keep split ends from moving further up the hair shaft. If you are keeping the style or growing your hair out this is essential for a healthy head of hair. Your hair grows approximately ¼ an inch to ½ a month. Taking just a ¼ inch of your hair off after all the styling you do in between visits is not going to hinder growth. It is when you don’t take advantage of having a hair service for months on end that you will need a lot more taken off for your hair to maintain it’s health.

If you get a moment, hold up a ponytail or just a bunch of your hair in the mirror. Look and see the ends compared to the middle shaft portion of your hair. Are the ends see-through compared to the middle portion? Well that is the portion that needs to be taken off as the hair has not been cut in some time. Had your hair been cut every 6-8 weeks this would not be an issue. If you had your hair cut every 6-8 weeks and you still have this issue then your hair is damaged and in need of a treatment and a trim.

Please call or message me for an appointment or more information.
