Hair changes every 5 to 7 years. As our body ages, we see changes in our hair texture. The hair of a newborn is very soft and fine. The diameter of the hair thickens as we enter childhood and early adolescence. As we age and move into adulthood and older, usually beginning in our 40’s and 50’s, the hair begins to change texture again, becoming “finer” or “thinner” and/or “wiry” or “frizzy.” Add to the causes of your hair texture changing, hormonal imbalances, medications, diet, and genetics. So what can you do? First, get your hormones checked. Hormones influence your hair and texture in many ways since they are regulators of the body’s metabolism and its functions. Diet and medications can take a toll on hair so rule out any possible nutritional deficiencies that can cause dry, thinning, brittle hair or hair loss.

Next, get a GREAT (not just good) haircut! Work with an experienced hair professional to help you with your texture changes. Discuss your lifestyle and desired time commitment to your hair now. Seriously consider getting color, highlights, low-lights, or a permanent/body wave. One or a combination of these texture-changing services can help fine or thin hair look and feel fuller and “wiry” or “frizzy” hair look and feel more controlled and manageable.

On this client, she is just beginning to go grey but not ready (or wanting) full all over color. I have highlighted her hair with color to blend in the grey starting to come though. If your hair is straight, fine, limp and/or flat, a permanent/body wave can give you the texture and lift which boosts the overall volume of the hair to make it much easier to create today’s fashionable hairstyles as seen on this client here.

Seen here are the wrapping technique used, curl results and the finished style. (Click on the picture for larger view.)

For those who want the “undone”, “beach wave”, or “swag” look regularly  https://dmazsalon.com/the-swag/, you would be better off getting a body wave as opposed to using curling irons every day. Irons apply more direct heat, and daily use of them would produce more damage over time.

A few quick facts about permanent/body waves. Human hair is an extremely strong and versatile fiber. With an experienced stylist/perm specialist, they will evaluate your hair and determine the type of solution, rod size and wrapping technique. Proper care using only professionally recommended & bought at a salon haircare and regular maintenance can keep your “waves” lasting for months and styling time on your hair definitely minimized. The rewards of an easy-to-care-for style are great and having a permanent/body wave can make a world of difference between looking uninteresting or looking fashionably beautiful!

For more information and/or consultation if a permanent wave, body wave or a combination of other salon texture-changing services are for you!

Winter Wellness for your Hair

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Blow-dry Hairstyling, Environmental, Hair Color, hair loss, hair texture, Health and Wellness, New Products, News, Publications, thinning hair, Tips, Uncategorized, Wellness, Winter Hair Care, Women's Hairstyles

From hat hair to static electricity, split ends to dry frizz, when winter weather hits, a bad hair day can last an entire season. Hair typically gets 25 percent dryer during the winter. Even if you live in a moderate climate, you’re still susceptible to hair-raising changes as the seasons pass.

The environment can have some of the most damaging effects on hair in both summer and winter, but in winter it’s often worse because people generally don’t take as many precautions to protect their hair. Sun exposure (which can be as intense on a ski slope as it is on a beach) combined with blustery winter wind as well as snow, rain, and icy cold (which makes hair brittle and dry) can all come together to create some very bad winter hair days.

Even if you spend most of your time indoors, winter is still your hair’s enemy. Indoor heating can be something akin to spending an entire afternoon under a hair dryer. Honestly, it’s not quite as dramatic as the damage would be from that, but it certainly gives you an idea of what indoor heating can do to your hair. No matter what’s causing your winter hair woes, it is a fact the hair tends to become dry faster and have more breakage in the winter.

 

Here are 5 simple nourishing, replenishing and protective steps you can take for winter hair wellness ~

1. Make sure you are equipped with a high quality, salon professional shampoo and conditioner. The right shampoo and conditioner at this time of the year will help repair, seal and smooth your hair. A good hair mask is highly recommended once to twice a week for severely damaged hair. Davines SU/Mask https://dmazsalon.com/new-davines-su-hair-and-body-care/ or Davines Nounou or Minu Masks https://dmazsalon.com/retail-promotions/ are wonderful for winter stressed hair.

2. Avoid over-washing your hair in winter and in the shower. Try to wash it over the sink or tub with warm to cool water. The pressure of the shower head and the hot water causes the formation of tiny chinks in the surrounding cuticle which adds to the problems of hair dryness and breakage.

3. Towel-dry your hair very gently as aggressive rubbing roughs up the cuticle that can lead to breakage.

4. Professionally prescribed styling products are a must to help protect the hair from thermal styling and the environment. “Layering” your hair products individually and combing each through thoroughly can help achieve added protection, texture and shine. Direct warm (not hot) air from the blow dryer down the hair shaft to encourage the hair to lay flatter.

5. Plenty of water and good nutrition that incorporates small portions of all the key food groups such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean protein sources helps to nourish and protect hair. Taking a quality-grad multivitamin with essential B vitamins (B6, B12, folate), essential fatty acids and adequate minerals can help dry, weak hair prone to breakage in the winter.
