I have long hair and worry about split ends. How often do they need to be trimmed?
Typically Long hair clients go longer between cuts. This is understandable due to the aggressive nature of some stylists and their over zealous cutting of long hair. It is VERY important to find a stylist you trust and that understands your desire to maintain long luscious locks. I recommend going no longer the 6-8 weeks between TRIMS. this is different from CUTS. Have an honest chat with your stylist to insure your desired length is maintained but trimming only what is damaged and no more than will grow back in the allotted 6-8 week time. If you are growing your hair it is just as important to get regular trims as split ends can have a ‘Run’ effect like a pair of nylons, it will work its way up damaged hair strands damaging them further. As long as each trim is less than the hair is growing each month you will enjoy longer hair that is healthy and beautiful in no time! Avoiding what I call Amputation cuts due to neglectful hair growth of no cuts at all during your growing out period which causes in most cases as much if not more length removed due to the ‘Run’ effect mentioned before. Do your part at home!!! Long hair needs more moister at the ends. Because the ends do not benefit from the natural oils of your scalp they are at the mercy of the harsh elements with little to no protection and on top of that many use hot tools daily which further abuse the tresses! Make sure you are using a moisturizing set of Shampoo and Conditioner and doing regular monthly Deep Conditioning treatments at home or in the salon. Pick up a Thermal Protection Product like our Onesta Thermal Protection spray. Utilize these tips and enjoy long luscious locks for all to envy!

Welcome to our first instalment of TIPS TUESDAY! Our first question is excellent and perfectly timed for the weather we have been enjoying.
With the cooler weather, my skin is drying out and my scalp is itchy. What can I do about this?
Itchy scalp and all over dry skin is common for many people in the winter months due to dry heated environments. Make sure you are not OVER cleansing your scalp. If you are using harsh abrasive shampoos and conditioners it will dry your scalp and hair further, but shampooing too often can cause this too. Wait for your hair to truly be dirty before washing, if unavoidable try a dry shampoo, and at the very least during the winter months opt for more moisture dense shampoos and conditioners. Over cleansing your skin causes it to react as if it is in a harsh environment and cause it to create more Sebum and make your hair oily as well. A product available to remedy itchy scalp and dry patches anywhere on the body is Beautify Serum from Eufora, this beautiful light oil is made up of Geranium, Orange, Grapefruit, Cranberry and Aragon oil. This light oil goes along way, one pump wet and 1\2 pump dry is enough to make the tresses happy and rubbed right onto the scalp provides a soothing relief from itchy dry irritated scalp.
