Bad Hair Day?
If only every day was a good hair day. What to do on those days when you wake up but your hair is either still sleeping, didn’t get any sleep or is grouchy? The hot tools and the tightly slicked back ponytail may seem like the answer at the moment but in the long run can be the source of excess dryness and breakage.
On the morning of your bad hair days, the better choice is a product to moisturize and control your hair versus heated tools and holding products like gel and hairspray. So you slept on your hair without protecting it with a scarf or tying it back and now your hair is tangled and reverting back, no longer the smooth flat-ironed style you went to sleep with. This reversion is due to sweating or not securing your hair prior to sleeping. At this point, be careful not to abuse the hair by combing roughly or brushing. At Body and Soul Salon and Spa you will find the products that will provide you with the proper moisture balance to soften those unruly tresses. Apply a small amount of Curl Quencher Moisturizing Conditioner to the hairline of hair that is relaxed before using a wide tooth comb for detangling. For those who are wearing natural texture, using Ouidad’s Botanical Boost Curl Enhancing and Refreshing Spray will awaken those still sleeping curls. Once the product has had a little time to absorb, moisturize and detangle, it will be easier for a wide tooth comb to remove tangling causing less stress and damage to the tresses.
Once the hair has been detangled and moisturized, the tresses should be placed into a “not too tight” chignon/bun and secured with a clip or pins versus tightly pulled ponytails that put stress on the hairline and the strands at the center of the ponytail causing progressive breakage. Creating chignons may take practice but will decrease the chances of progressive breakage.
