Professional Hair Care
How do you go around choosing the right products?Hair itself is either ‘neutral’ ( healthy & unproblematic) or dry, and it’s the scalp that secretes excess sebum and makes your hair greasy.
You need to find the right products adapted to your hair type – ask your hairdresser or a dermatologist what sort of scalp you have.
Once you’ve found the right product, you need to use it properly and regularly. After each wash, use de-tangling conditioner or balm, and use a mask once or twice a week for 5-10 minutes. Once every two weeks or whenever you feel like it isn’t enough and won’t do you any good!

The reality is if your hair has been highlighted every time its been colored, the chances of overlapping and over processing are greater than not. Try breaking your base instead of highlights when it’s time for your color touch ups. That way, you’ll give your hair a small break while saving money and looking color fresh.
Just because you love a high-end shampoo with a double-digit price tag doesn’t mean you have to use the same brand of conditioner, hairspray, serum, etc. Your stylist might try to push the whole line on you, saying they work best together, but it’s totally fine to save cash by splurging on one haircare item and hitting the drugstore for the rest.
The “wash and wear” haircut and the daily shampoo are really only needed if you have really fine hair. If your hair is wavy or curly, it tends to be a little drier, so you really shouldn’t shampoo every day.
