How can I make my hair grow faster? How often should I wash It? How can I stop the frizz? Why is my hair so knotty? Every day in the salon we get these questions and more about hair and how to manage it..After all that's our job!
We thought we would share the advice we give to some of your most commonly asked questions..
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WASH MY HAIR ?
This will depend on your lifestyle, hair type and condition, however you should avoid washing your hair every day. shampooing your hair every day will remove the natural oils on your scalp which can cause hair to become dry and brittle and more prone to breaking. It can also make you colour fade more quickly.
Even if you have an oily scalp we don't recommend shampooing every day, this can cause the scalp to becomes dehydrated and therefore produce more oil to compensate resulting in an oilier scalp and hair.
Washing your hair 2-3 times a week is enough with a shampoo and conditioner specifically prescribed for you hair type.
If you feel you need to refresh between washes a dry shampoo spray, paste or powder works a treat
HOW CAN I CONTROL CURLY HAIR & STOP FRIZZ ?
All curls are different and require different products, but all types of curly hair needs moisture and hydrating. Always usea moisturising conditioner after you shampoo your hair and use a leave-in moisturiser before you add your styling product. Shampooing less and just wetting it and applying conditioner can help to encourage you curls.
Apply styling products while you hair is still very damp, work your cream, gel, mousse or lotion into your hair evenly by twisting and placing the curls section by section.
Leave it to dry naturally or use a diffuser, don't touch it, you risk loosing the curl formation and making it frizzy. Once it is dry you can then scrunch it and fluff it to remove the the cast (stiff layer of product) and you will have defined, frizz free curls.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CUT MY HAIR ?
Hair grows just over 1cm in a month on average, so to maintain your styl , keep the shape looking great and avoid damage we would recommend a hair cut every 4 to 6 weeks. Of course this will depend on how fast your hair grows and the texture and style.
If you are trying to grow your hair you can go a little longer between trims we would recommend 6 to 8 weeks. You need to keep the ends blunt as don't want your ends to split and break, loosing the length that has just grown.
I HAVE FINE HAIR THAT ALWAYS SITS FLAT?
Lotions, mousses, spray, gels and powders are your best friends when it comes to fine hair. Using root lift and volumising products when you style your hair is a must. They give the hair strength and can actually increase the size of individual strands, the hair also sits off the scalp so it wont get greasy as quickly. Your style will last longer and have more bounce and volume.
Avoid thick heavy creams, waxes and serums they will weigh you hair down.
Ask your hairstylist which formula is best for your hairstyle and to demonstrate the right way to apply the product to your fine hair.
Supplements can also help and if you would like to know more about Aede Hair Activist a new all natural health hair supplement that was designed to strengthen, grow and replenish hair you can read about it here
