Three Benefits of the Keratin Hair Treatment

Three Benefits of the Keratin Hair Treatment

Easy to style, silky hair is one of the most coveted desires for many women. We all want to walk down the street while our beautiful, easy, breezy hair flows just perfectly in the wind. Unfortunately, this is the farthest thing from our hair reality. We have to resort to over-styling, putting too much product, and generally stressing out way too much over our hair. It takes up too much time, annoyance, and mental energy. For the ladies who feel like they practically sleep with the flat-iron in their hand, I highly recommend getting a Keratin treatment. It will change your life – trust me! On an episode of AOL’s Hairapy, I performed a Keratin treatment on Bethel, whose unruly hair was driving her crazy. Watch the video to see the gorgeous results then read on for the Top Three Benefits of the Keratin Hair Treatment. The Keratin Hair Treatment reduces styling time which is beneficial on a practical level, but also great for your hair. Imagine not having to put aside a huge chunk of time for your hair to look decent. Sounds like heaven, doesn’t it? While this is a huge perk, what is even better is that the less you expose your hair to heat the healthier your hair will be. The Keratin Treatment enables you to give your hair a break from heavy duty styling. Keratin is naturally found in your hair. Unlike the Japanese Hair Straightening Treatment it doesn’t change the internal structure of you hair to get it super straight. So what does it do? It works with the natural structure of your hair to ease the curl and get rid of the frizz. In short, it turns your hair into the best version of itself. You will not be victim to the whims of mother nature. Yes, you heard right! Your hair will not poof up in humid weather, nor will you have to run and hide from the slightest drizzle because you are afraid your hair will tangle and become unruly. For four to six blissful months you can experience the entire spectrum of weather without worrying about your hair looking terrible. Renee Taglia is located in a Beverly Hills California.

A Master Hair Colorist’s Top Three Tips for Restoring Hair Color and Health

As a Master Hair Colorist there is one thing that I see more often than anything else: chemically treated, damaged hair. So many of the ladies who come in for hair color consultations are wary and traumatized from a previous hair color and/or treatment experience. The story usually goes a little something like this: “I have unruly hair to begin with and I really wanted it straight on a daily basis so I did one chemical straightening treatment too many.” Another common tale, “I had black hair and needed to be blonde ASAP so I over bleached,” and it goes on and on. Can you relate? I know most of you can! If you want healthy hair and gorgeous hair color that pops long after your salon visit, you need to start treating your hair like the living organism that it is (with the utmost care and respect!) This means being patient with drastic hair color changes, buying good, chemical-free hair care products, and being kind when styling your hair (don’t pull it, don’t brush too harshly). Below is an episode of the AOL’s Hairapy in which I had to avert a chemically treated disaster. Watch the episode below then read on for my Top Three Tips on How to Heal a Hair Disaster: Nix the flat-iron. Heat styling depletes the moisture from your hair and the biggest culprit of heat-induced damage is the flat-iron. It causes breakage, split-ends, and ultimately┬áresults in faded hair color and a dull appearance for you hair. For many staying away from the flat-iron is easier said than done, but, as a master hair colorist, I strongly advise that you try to (at least) reduce flat-iron use. Stick to blowdrying or even the curling iron, but even then use a good thermal spray to protect your hair. Deep conditioning treatments are your best friend. Regular deep conditioning treatments are an absolute must to nurse chemically damaged hair back to health. I recommend going to the salon one to two times a month. If you are seeking an at-home solution, try using coconut oil. Slather your hair with coconut oil (avoid roots, concentrate on tips) and leave it on for about an hour before you rinse. It will leave your hair feeling silky and your hair color shiny. Bonus points for hitting the sauna or a hot yoga class with the coconut oil in your hair as heat activates the coconut oil to work its magic on an even deeper level. Go for trims every four to six weeks. It’s funny how the most basic advice that we have been hearing since we were little kids is the most valid of all. Trimming your hair...

Three Tips for Instantly Healthy Hair Using Hair Color

Three Tips for Instantly Healthy Hair Using Hair Color

Last week was the conclusion of my blog series, Master Colorist’s Fall 2015 Hair Color Trend Forecast. This was a bittersweet event for me because I can talk about hair color trends all day, however, I am just as excited today to introduce a video series that I loved being a part of: AOL’s HAIRapy! I loved doing this series for a many reasons, but the fact that I got to give knowledge about hair care and use what I have learned in all my years as a Master Hair Colorist to help others takes the cake. There is nothing more satisfying than turning that chair around and witnessing a look of complete happiness on my clients face. In this episode, our lovely guest, Carole, is facing a problem that is all too common among women today: She simply does not have the means to touch up her hair color every six to eight weeks, so she resorts to doing her hair color herself. As a result, her hair is in a state of complete disarray. Carole certainly isn’t alone as this might just be the most common predicament hair colorist’s hear on the daily. The good news is that there are a few simple hair color tricks and hair care methods you can incorporate that will make your hair look healthier instantly and buy you time in between visits to the hair salon. Watch the video below then read my Three Tips for Instantly Healthier Hair Using Hair Color: It might seem counterintuitive, but a fresh hair color treatment (with a hair colorist who knows his/her stuff, of course) is actually a great solution. Adding color molecules to your hair gives hair structure and makes hair look healthier than it is. Keep it low maintenance by working with your natural hair color. If you know that it is going to be difficult for you to touch up your hair color due to schedule, finances, etc, you definitely want to stick to a color that works with your natural tones. This is great because it enhances what you already have and allows you to spend the time in between salon visits paying more attention to making your hair healthy rather than maintaining the hair color. Make sure to voice this to your hair colorist the minute you sit in the chair. Gloss treatments don’t just give hair shine, they actually improve the health of your hair. The gloss acts as an instant deep condition by return texture to your hair for instant moisture and silkiness. It also helps make hair more manageable so you’ll have to spend less time tampering with hot tools at home. Bonus: Intermittent gloss treatments...
