You’ve Got Questions I’ve Got Answers

A: The problem is usually a lack of moisture and proper conditioning. Aveda’s Dry Remedy is perfect for this situation. It instantly improves hair 63% with buriti oil derived conditioners. When partnered with the damage Remedy Moisturizing Treatment Masque, used once a week, it will transform even the driest, most brittle hair into soft touchable locks.

A: This is a matter of hair condition and your at home regimen. The condition of your hair will determine the color results and how long your color stays “true”. If your hair is damaged, the color can easily come out of the hair resulting in fading. The shampoo and conditioners you use at home are invaluable in keeping your color vibrant longer. I recommend Aveda’s Color Conserve shampoo and conditioner. Color Conserve is formulated with natural ingredients that gently cleanse without stripping out color, and it contains natural UV protection. Used in conjunction with the Color Conserve Strengthening Treatment you will achieve better color results from the start and keep your color truer longer.

A: The average person loses 100-150 hairs per day. You may notice you lose more hair after a shower. The reason for that is the scalp stimulation created by shampooing and conditioning cause more blood flow to the hair follicle and the hairs that were ready to fall out come out. We also lose more hair in the summer than in the winter. In addition, a change in hormones (puberty, pregnancy, and menopause) can affect our hair dramatically. You may notice a change in the texture (curly or straight), porosity (dryness) and amount of hair you have. Often, once the body acclimates to the hormone changes our hair settles down. If the problem persists, I’d be happy to make a recommendation as there are many topical aids that may help.

A: A quick fix is to add some low-lights that are as close to your natural shade as possible. Remember, I am trained to correct color so I know to try to only retouch the strand I have previously highlighted. The process takes longer but the payoff is worth it. Once my client achieves the desired amount of highlights, they don’t have to deal with becoming too blonde over time.

A: There are other options, depending on the amount of damage. Aveda’s Damage Remedy was created for fragile, damaged hair. Damage Remedy shampoo and conditioner are made with quinoa protein, coconut, and babassu to lend new life to hair. Dry Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment is used weekly; it penetrates hair working from the inside out to help strengthen damaged hair. I also recommend small hair trims every 6-8 weeks to slowly remove the damage and keep it from getting worse.

A: A hair stylist styles hair all day, every day. We have the practice and the education necessary to achieve almost any look. I’d be happy to explain what I am doing and why as I style your hair. Ask for tips you can try at home to make it easier. Finally, practice, practice, and practice some more, that’s how I learned!

A: Find a picture that is as close to what you want, and bring it with you on your appointment. The most common issue is communication, or the lack thereof. It is the my job is to figure out what you mean and advise you on whether or not the style will work for you. Many things play into a new style change, the amount of time you spend on your hair each day, the texture of your hair, the maintenance schedule, etc. Plus, don’t be afraid to ask me questions. Our appointment may take a little longer, but the problems that are averted are well worth the extra time.
