4 tips to Save your Hair
Over-processed hair can be a nightmare to manage. Revive strands with the 4 tips below and get back to feeling like you.
Tip #1: Get a trim
Sounds simple right, but if your hair is damaged, the best thing you can do is cut off the split ends. Try to take off at least 1 to 2 inches. If you go for less, the ends can continue to break off and damage will remain. A good rule of thumb is to book a cut every 6 to 8 weeks to keep hair looking its best.
Tip # 2: Limit your hot tools and heat styling We all love a fresh blowout, flat irons, and curling wands to smooth and mold the perfect style, but they can be extremely damaging to the hair. Thermal tools and heat styling can be just as damaging as chemical services if proper judgement is not used. Just because a flat iron goes up to 450f/225c doesn’t mean you should use it at that heat. When heat styling, always use a thermal protectant in addition to regular K18 treatments both in-salon and at home to maintain the best hair possible. Try to air dry the hair more often and embrace your natural texture.
Tip #3: Invest in yourself with high-quality products made for your specific hair needs.
Unfortunately, not all products are created equal. Many cheaper formulas are full of sulfates which can be very drying, silicones that cause buildup, and parabens which can negatively affect hormone levels. When hair has been overprocessed, it typically lacks hydration and elasticity so you will need different products to address different concerns. They key is getting hair back to its healthiest state so you can avoid having to use 10 products to make hair look its best. K18 repairs hair from the inside out, addressing damage on a deeper level and offering a treatment that actually renews strength and elasticity so you’ll need less product afterward. Plus, it works with the biology of your hair so there won’t be any additional build up or heavy chemicals sitting on the hair’s top layers weighing it down.
Tip # 4: Use K18 Treatment both in the salon and at home for maintenance. One of the best ways to help restore over-processed hair is with a hair mask. Everyone wants to have healthy hair and with K18, it’s a promise that can be fulfilled. K18Peptide™ mask is able to restore moisture, natural shine, and elasticity to depleted hair. The patented K18 peptide is the first ever product to use biomimetics to reconnect keratin chains once broken by bleach, color, and chemical services, resulting in strength, softness, smoothness, and bounce of hair like new.
I offer the in salon service during your appointment and have the mask to take home for maintenance. Be sure to add K18 to your next appointment and feel the difference for yourself.
