How often should I wash my hair?
You shouldn’t wash your hair everyday...FALSE!
How often you wash your hair depends on you and your hair. For oily hair you may want to wash your hair every day or every other day. If you have dry hair you can wash your hair a couple times a week or sometimes go even longer. Whatever works for you, however dry shampoo can be your best friend but also can be your worst enemy.. spray dry shampoo on your hair and then re style with heat BIG NO NO, dry shampoo dry the hair and then putting excessive heat on top will cause damage so only use dry shampoo when really necessary.
How can I make my hair grow faster?
Sadly there is no real proven way to help your hair grow faster. Our hair grows approximately 1/2 an inch a month and we lose around 100 hairs a day, don't panic this is normal and you don't lose them all in one place. Little hair science for you.. there are 4 different stages to hair growth; active, resting, shedding and re growth therefore, all the thousands of strands on our head are all in different stages of the hair growth cycle.
There are factors that can help with healthy hair growth and you should treat your hair no differently to our skin and body.
- Eat a healthy diet
- Avoid using too much heat on the hair
- Regular trims
- Massaging the scalp
All of these will promote strong healthy hair.
What hair products should I use on my hair?
Different hair products should be used on different types of hair and to achieve certain hair styles/looks.
Do you struggle with frizz? To help smooth your hair our Kerasilk Control Smoothing Fluid would be perfect, or perhaps you need a product to create volume and hold like our Kerasilk Bodifying Volume Mousse. On a whole a product with heat protection SHOULD be used before blowdrying and after as well if using heat, and most of our products do contain heat protector.
If you’re unsure what products would be suitable for your hair, ask one of our stylists at your next appointment and they will be happy to advise.
How often should I have my hair cut?
Most people go 8-12 weeks for a hair cut. Shorter hairstyles normally require appointments between 4-6 weeks to keep hair in style. Having regular trims will keep hair healthy and keep those dreaded split ends at bay. The only way to 'fix' split ends is to cut them off, once the hair has split it will continue to split up the hair shaft. For long healthy hair regular trims will stop any dry ends from splitting.
How can I make my hair thicker?
Nothing will actually make the strands of hair thicker. There are certain products that can help make hair appear thicker and fuller as well as styling techniques. Regular hair cuts will also help make the hair appear thicker as whispy ends will drag hair down where as blunt ends give a thicker look. If you have finer hair a shorter style will help hair appear fuller. Another option is hair extensions to add body.
