So, as this is the last week of our Happy Holiday Hair month, we thought it was important to give you some handy tips for conditioning your hair once your home to turn those sun scorched ends into soft velvet strands!
TIP 1: Pay attention to application.
Always start at your ends and work upwards when conditioning your hair. There isn’t much need for conditioner at the roots, because your scalp will create natural oils up there, adding more moisture will just create grease! A good way to do it is don’t apply anywhere above your chin. It will only weigh down your hair more, and make your hair look greasy sooner.
TIP 2: Comb through.
This is important to make sure the product is reaching all of your hair. Not only is it the easiest way to detangle your hair, but it also helps keep it from tangling after it dries. Conditioner also protects your hair from daily damage. So make sure you comb through. Or even use your fingers!
TIP 3: Let it sit.
Always let your conditioner sit in your hair for a few minutes so it can penetrate the cuticle. The more moisture your hair has, the more damage it can prevent. Rinsing well with cool water will close the cuticle, locking in the conditioner and leaving it glossy for longer.
TIP 4: Consider a mask.
We always suggest that our clients do a mask every few weeks. It’s a more intense conditioning treatment that keeps your hair the healthiest. This is especially important if you heat style or chemically treat your hair. Your can buy your own mask from us and do it yourself every two or three weeks, or you can pop into the salon for a treatment once in a while. These usually sit on your hair for about 10-20 minutes. (Bbut can really they can be left on as long as you want when your at home!) Masks are definitely too heavy to use every time you condition, so investing in a good mask will be worth it since it will last you so long. However, we have heard of a couple of home made remedies which are meant to be just as good for your hair!
*Mix ½ teaspoon honey,juice of 1 lemon in some water and wash the hair.Then rinse with clear water.
*Apply conditioner to hair after each hair wash.
*Precaution should be taken that the conditioner does not touch the scalp. the conditioner should be applied on hair & hair tips.
*For extra shine rinse the hair with vinegar.
Egg Conditioner Recipe

*Beat the egg yolk until its frothy, add the oil then beat again. Add to the water. Massage into the scalp and throughout your hair. Rinse well.
But if you don’t fancy the idea of coating your hair in egg or honey..
