Dry and Brittle should not describe your Hair

ShareThis
With the changes in our weather, we know that there are times when the words, Dry and Brittle can describe our hair.  The weather, water, relaxers, color and environment can take it's toll on our hair, leaving our hair thirsty for conditioning and rejuvenation.  Whether altered by color, relaxed or natural, your hair can benefit from the effects of a keratin treatment.    We know that not all keratin treatments are created equal and we have seen, first hand, the effects of the at-home keratin treatments and the damages that they can cause.  We offer 2 professional lines for our Keratin services;  Keratin Complex and Brazilian Blowout.

The benefits of Keratin treatments include the ultimate in conditioning as the treatment fills in the gaps in the hair strand, which helps the hair to look and feel smoother.  It also cuts down on the drying time and allows you to lower the heat on your tools.  Eliminating prolonged and excessive heat is definitely a benefit as it will minimize damage.  

For Color clients, the keratin locks in your color for longer wear and helps to minimize fading, while keeping the color's vibrancy and brillance. 

For Relaxer clients, the keratin's conditioning components ease the stress of the relaxer.  Similar to Armor All for the car, the keratin gives nutrients and fortifies your hair to help minimize breakage and damage.

For Natural clients, this is the area that we see a myriad of benefits.  There are 3 areas for Natural Clients that we see the greatest benefit. 1. DEFINITION:  For natural hair, definition in texture is always an area that most clients want to address.  Lack of definition is caused by frizz.  When the hair is frizzy, your coils and curls look undefined and haphazard.  The keratin treatments help to de-frizz your tresses as it conditions. 2. CONDITIONING: And the lack of conditioning is another culprit to our coils and curls, making the hair look dry and damaged.  The keratin's conditioning surpasses thick conditioners and deep treatments as it is bonded with the hair to seal and coat the hair.  3: SHRINKAGE:  We all love our beautiful coils and curls, but once they are dry, they tend to disappear to half and sometimes a third of their normal length.  The keratin slightly reduces your curl texture in many cases, no more than 20% to allow your tresses to be elongated yet, bouncy and beautiful.   We know that originally keratin treatments were for those who wanted straight hair but we now know that us curly girls are getting more out of keratin than ever before.  

We offer 2 professional lines of keratin treatments for a reason.  Depending on the benefits that your hair needs, we have an option for you.  No one treatment is right for everyone, so during our consultation, we will ask you all about your activity levels, the chemical history of your hair, the goal for your hair and more.  This is so that we can get the right system for you.  

We offer the following Keratin Treatments:
Express Keratin treatment: lasts 4-6 weeks and is great for relaxer and/or color clients as it can be applied on the same day as a relaxer or color and works with the timing of relaxing or color services.  The cost of this service is $125.

Full Keratin Treatment:  lasts 3-5 months,  Great for children, clients who are natural, transitioning from relaxed to natural, and minimal colorist (highlighting every 4 months or so).  The cost of this service is $350.

Same Day Smoother:  lasts 2 months  This service is great for those in menopause, heavy exercisers and swimmers. This service cost is $200.

Curl Controller:  last 2 months.  This service is for those natural clients that do not want heat applied to their hair, but want to defrizz their tresses.  The cost of this service is $150.

BB Treatment:  last 2 months.  This service is best for clients that want a little more curl reduction and may have some sensitivity to products.  The cost of this service is $250.  

As you can see, there is something for everyone.  We look forward to helping you get your hair in shape so you can put your best hair forward!

Healthy Hair with a Relaxer is a Reality!

ShareThis
We have been getting alot of questions regarding relaxers and whether they are healthy or harmful.  Healthy relaxer services are possible.  We have a few suggestions and steps to keep your hair and scalp healthy with relaxers.  We don't want you pulling out your hair, so here are some helpful hints prior to your next Anti-curl relaxer appointment.  These tips will help to eliminate scalp irritation and burning, whether this is your first or a follow-up Anti-curl Relaxer Retouch.  
1.   Avoid scratching, heavy combing ang brushing at least 2
      days prior
2.   Do not shampoo 3-5 days prior to service as
      shampooing removes the natural protective oils and can
      irritate the scalp
3.   Avoid hairstyles that pulls on the scalp - ie: tight braids,
      buns or ponytails
4.   Avoid rigorous exercise as sweating (salt and waste)
      cause dehydration making the scalp itchy and sensitive
5.   Avoid chemicals that dehydrate the scalp - ie: chlorine
      (swimming), products containing alcohols; such as
      hairsprays and gels
6.   Avoid caffeinated drinks as they over stimulate and
      sensitize the scalp
7.   If you are coming out of braids, please take down braids
      at least 2 days prior to service to allow your scalp to calm
      down after the braid removal process

The following are Signs that your hair is ready for an Anti-curl Relaxer Retouch:

1.   You have converted back to your emergency ponytail
      look
2.   Even after flat ironing or pressing, your hair won't stay
      smooth
3.   Shedding hair: stretching a relaxer treatment is not
      healthy for your hair
4.   Breakage:  prolonging the time between relaxers can
      cause breakage
5.   Style will not hold: you look great leaving in the morning,
      but an hour or two later your hair looks nothing like when
      you left home

Remember:  Anti-curl Relaxers require regular maintenance in order to minimize breakage and excess damage to the hair.  Follow the maintenance schedule recommended by your stylist to keep your hair healthy and beautiful.  This time span is usually between 6-8 weeks, depending on how quickly your hair grows.  Call with any questions you may have 303 388-3339. posted: September 28, 2014

TEXTURED HAIR

ShareThis
What is textured hair?  Unless your hair is completely straight, you have textured hair.  Textured hair is wavy, curly, coily, tight, compact zigzag and any combination of them.  Chances are, you have textured hair and you are not alone.  65% of the population has textured hair.  As the American culture continues to evolve and we continue to blend as families, our textures continue to blend and evolve.  We know that there are new products popping up on every store shelf with little information to assist you in your choices and many of those products do not take into consideration the needs or condition of your hair.  Then, there is an entirely different issue with all the You tube videos on textured hair how to's that have an abundance of mis-information.  Remember, what works for your favorite You-Tuber may and most likely will not work for you.  The benefits of Coconut Oil are great, but if your hair is not lacking protein, coconut oil will cause more damage than help. Check out our previous blog about Coconut Oil for more info.  So, be very careful about what you commit your hair to.   Here are some basics that hold true with textured hair.  1.  Wavy hair needs Frizz control.  2.  Curly hair needs definition and 3. Coily, Tight and ZigZag textures need hydration and moisture.  These basics hold true in 99% of all textured hair cases.  We offer services to bring Frizz control to the wavy, Definition to the curly and Hydration to the coily, tight and zigzag textures.  We are here to help!  We do texture!  Call Body & Soul Salon and Day Spa, Inc.   303 388 3339.  Let us bring your texture to life! posted: June 18, 2015
