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 or Davines Nounou or Minu masks are wonderful for winter stressed hair. Note: Do not over use “Protein” treatments or conditioners. Actual protein treatments or conditioners help to reinforce weak hair but should only be used when professionally recommended. Over use of “protein” on the hair can cause buildup resulting in dry, brittle hair and breakage.

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 post shampooing and conditioning as aggressive rubbing roughs up the cuticle that can lead to breakage. Less friction results also in less frizzing!

4. Professionally prescribed styling products for men and women 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, control, texture, shine and reduce static. Professional hair products are not only recommended for men’s hair but for also softening and controlling beards!  If using a blow-dryer, direct warm (not hot) air from the down to encourage 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. Read more here about the Top 10 herbs for hair growth & Your Diet, Your Hair.

Finally, use a Humidifier (moist air). Dry air from either climate conditions or working in a building that pumps air (hot or cold) in can result in lifeless, flat, dry, and flyaway hair. Regularly run a humidifier to help put moisture back into the air.

The haircare lines at D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon were very carefully chosen based on their proven ability to perform and give the best results with attention and respect for the environment using high-grade natural and organic ingredients. It would be a pleasure to prescribe for you a custom home regimen that would help give your hair the best health, shine, and control for your hair texture and type.

Color & Haircut Make-over

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Blow-dry Hairstyling, Color make-over, Fashion, hair texture, make-overs, Spring hairstyles, Summer hairstyles, Up-do's, Women's Hairstyles

A new client with thick, naturally wavy hair came in this week with approximately 1″ of regrowth and chunky highlights done on the top of her head and underneath around her nape for when she wore her hair up.

A new base color one level lighter than what she previously had been wearing was chosen to soften her look and bring out her light brown eye color. After processing the new base color, a full head of small weaved highlights were done due to her hair’s thickness to brighten up the entire head and blend in the chunkier highlights on the top. Her color service was followed up with Olaplex for 15 minutes & a protein/moisture conditioner for 5 minutes.

At the styling chair, a leave-in color saver was applied followed by Aquage SeaExtend silkening oil treatment and straightening ultragel. Her hair was blown-dry straight and lightly flat ironed before finishing off her haircut dry with a “Clavicut” style. The Clavicut style can be tailored to face shape and hair type ~ worn straight, wavy or curly. The longest layers of this cut graze the clavicle and this collarbone-skimming style is fast becoming the hairstyle of choice for all ages due to its functionality and ease. With this style, she will be able to wear her hair down without it weighing her down and her up-do styles will still be very romantic.

Looking for a haircut or color change? Don’t know if the “Clavicut” is for you? Let me help you decide! Contact me today to help you with your choice of a new style or hair color to help you look and feel the best you can now! ~ Denise Zingale (216) 292-4247

Color Enhancement ~ Richer, Shinier Hair

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Blow-dry Hairstyling, Color make-over, fall hairstyles, Fashion, Hair Color, hair texture, make-overs, Spring hairstyles, Summer hairstyles, Tips, Uncategorized, Women's Hairstyles

This is a client who came in with natural “mousy” brown hair color. She wanted it to “pop”, look richer, healthier, shinier AND not have a commitment to coloring it regularly. I did a full head, fine low-lighting technique with a dark, chocolate red brown color and added Olaplex to her color service. Olaplex is a professional product that reconnects the broken disulfide sulfur bonds in the hair that are broken during chemical services. Olaplex is free of silicone, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, & gluten. After coloring and the Olaplex “after treatments” (#2 & #3), it was time to taking off approximately 2 inches help give her hair a nice line again. Here are the beautiful results!

Color Make-over: Brass to Blonde

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Blow-dry Hairstyling, Color make-over, fall hairstyles, Fashion, Hair Color, hair texture, make-overs, News, Spring hairstyles, Summer hairstyles, thinning hair, Tips, Uncategorized, Women's Hairstyles

This is a new client that came in asking me for color only to minimize her grey regrowth in the front – get rid of some of the “brassy” color – and have more natural brighter blonde look. To minimize her regrowth in the front, I zig-zagged a color 1 level lighter at the base regrowth than what I used on the rest of her head to cover her grey. Baby-lights where then foiled in half her head to brighten her blonde up. Results below with no haircut or “styling”.

Solutions for Fine, Thin, Wiry, Frizzy Hair

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Blow-dry Hairstyling, Fashion, Hair Color, hair loss, hair texture, make-overs, Publications, thinning hair, Tips, Uncategorized, Women's Hairstyles

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!

The permanent wave – yes it is in style!

Permanent waves have a bit of a bad rap, but they have not gone out of style.  Hair has come a long way since the “big” hair fad of the 80’s.  The new permanent waves are nothing like the tight curls of the decades past.  If your hair is straight, fine, limp and/or flat, a permanent wave can give you….   (READ ENTIRE ARTICLE)

New Waves

New Waves - DMAZ Salon - PostBy, Denise Zingale / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon

Ladies, if you have your straightening irons on standby waiting for the waved hair to pass, then 2005 is not going to be your year.  Big, bouncy, glamorous hair is the buzz for the year!

If the mere thought of big hair and perms brings you back to the thought of leg warmers, you’re not alone.  It is official though – the perm is back!  But this time around, it is different…   (READ ENTIRE ARTICLE)
