Hair care can sometimes seem like a daunting duty, however hair care is not only essential but it can take just a few steps added to your weekly beauty routine. A hair care routine will ensure that no matter what hairstyle you choose your hair will always look healthy and beautiful.

Don't Wash Your Hair Everyday

Washing your hair can strip your hair of natural oils and leave hair extra brittle. Ideally you should wash your hair 3-4 times a week. Its hard to break the habit of washing your hair every day but try putting your hair in an up-do or a braid for a day to avoid having to wash it. Another great alternative is dry shampoo. Here at the salon we carry R+Co Badlands Shampoo and it is a hair care dream!

GET REGULAR HAIR TRIMS

Cutting your hair can be a traumatizing experience, especially if you are trying to grow out your hair, however it is crucial to growing out beautiful and healthy hair. It is recommended that you get your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks. Don't Slack! Regularly trimming your hair prevents split ends and fly always providing for shinier and thicker hair. This will make the hair appear to grow faster because the hair will break less and allow for your hair to grow longer in a shorter amount of time. Consider scheduling appointments ahead of time every time you visit your hairstylist to help keep you on a healthy hair schedule.

Use a Detangling Brush

Not only does a detangling brush make brushing your hair more enjoyable its prevents breakage when brushing your hair. Also a detangeling brush is specifically designed to gently detangle efficiently but also capture shed hair while minimizing damage done to the hair.

Use Heat gaurds

If you use a curling iron, straightener or blow dryer daily make sure to keep your hair protected. Heat can be very damaging for hair. In addition to protecting your hair with a heat protectant product considering allowing your hair to dry naturally as often as possible or perhaps scheduling one day a week to have a heat free hair day. Here at F&C we carry R+Co Park Ave Blow Out Balm. Park Ave coats the hair to protect it and contains light hold for a little bit if body.

History writes of many methods of creating longer eyelashes such as trimming the ends to promote growth as well sewing hair right into the eyelids! In 1902 Karl Nessler famous for being the creater of the permanent hair wave a.k.a. the "PERM" created a way to weave artificial eyelashes and eyebrows and began selling them in his London salon.

Sugar paste, which is derived from sugar, lemon and distilled water (yes that's it) designed to gently remove the hair from the follicle exfoliating the dead skin as it removes.
Sugaring goes back centuries coming from the Middle East mostly.
