Improve Split Ends
Whether your client rocks a blunt bob and fringe or long layers, split ends are a telling sign that they need a haircut, stat! If they are unable to get fit in or can’t fit an appointment into their schedule, tell them to take self-care seriously. Consistent at-home treatments are a foolproof way to cut down on damage and the appearance of spilt ends while improving moisture and shine.
Cut Down on Color Fade
Heat is the prime suspect when it comes to creating dry, dull hair. That is because heat fades color, can prematurely pull out toners, and drain the moisture from your locks. While avoiding heat is your best bet, this isn’t always possible. If and when clients use heat on their hair, explain the importance of investing in products specifically for heat protection for pre-blow-dry and pre iron work.
Extend Heat Styling
Instinctively anytime someone gets a blowout, they are going to want to run their fingers through it and play with the hair all day long. Due to oils naturally on our hands, this cuts down on the life of the blowout. In addition to keeping hands off, aside from dry shampoo, try not to add any extra hairsprays or texturizers to your style as they can easily add buildup to the style.
Aside from giving clients more time in the morning, cutting down on the amount of styling performed also cuts down on damage and color fade. If a client wears their natural texture or prefers a smooth blowout, adding dry shampoo to their routine can help keep their style intact.
Sleep with a Satin or Silk Pillowcase
Aside from not touching the hair, the next best thing clients can do to prolong their style is to always sleep with a satin or silk pillowcase. These materials are great for hair because they prevent frizz that cotton pillowcases can often promote.
