Good Hair Days, Made Easy!
by Cami Fisher
Good hair days start with great hair. Sounds pretty straight forward, right?
Many of us suffer the consequences of processed, dull, dry, unprotected hair.
Believe me, I understand. Growing up with three older sisters and a mom on a tight budget, I too used to be an innocent victim - forced to use grocery store hair products such as Suave, V05, and oh yes, Aqua Net!
I never understood how important quality products were, even when hairdressers were pushing me to buy deep conditioners and leave-in protectors. It wasn't until one hairdresser made special trips to the beauty supply to pick up a product, that I realized she really did want me to have healthy, beautiful hair - which showcased her work and made me feel great!
As I flipped through the latest Elle magazine, I really saw how the media sometimes has created confusion on which products to use. I mean, come on! Do they really expect us to believe Kim Kardashian or Whitney Port are using Tresemme? (That was almost as good as when they thought we believed that Eva Longoria and Beyonce were using box color!! Seriously?)
At this point you may be asking, "What should we use then?" Well now, we are back to square one, and you may find yourself in a salon in front of what seems like thousands of pretty, colored bottles. Don't just reach for the prettiest one, that's how you end up with all those extra products under your sink, which you have no clue what to do with.
JUST ASK US!
Any stylist will be more than happy to educate you on product that best suits your hair type, life style, and desired end results. I can tell you - great healthy hair will begin with nurtured, moisturized hair. Everyone needs a great shampoo and conditioner and eventually three additional products:
* Leave-in protector (will be the foundation to any style, giving moisture along with heat protection)
* A style aid (the style aid will depend on your hair type and desired end result, volume, curl, straightness, etc)
* Finishing product ( such as a smoother, hair spray, or shine spray)
The rest will be up to you and your creativity, expanding with new products and the many different ways we can use them.
And now, I am that hairdresser who really cares about you having healthy, beautiful hair.
I can't wait to see you have a good hair day...everyday!
