As the weather gets warmer and the birds start chirping, many people think of the positives of spring such as the time change, the flowers blooming, and the increased sunshine and warmth. Unfortunately, with those positives come an increase in humidity and the negative effects that heat can have on your hair. Never fear, though. FHI Heat has you covered with top-of-the-line products to prevent frizz and heat damage, and leave your hair silky, nourished, and manageable. And keep in mind that not all hair is created equal. Each hair type requires a different set of rules to keep it looking its best, and the hints below will help you figure out exactly how to nourish the hair you have!
Washing your hair is an integral part of being successful in creating a beautiful, healthy head of hair. But sometimes people do too much of a good thing and make it worse. First, do not wash your hair every day. You need to give your hair time to build up its natural oils. Secondly, make sure that you do not wash your hair with hot water, as it can dry your hair. Thirdly, comb out your hair before you wash it so that you can reduce breakage. Following these simple tips is the first step to healthy, hydrated hair, no matter what type.
You might be surprised to learn how important your diet is to the health of your hair. A diet rich in protein is imperative, as that is what your hair is made of. Foods like lean meats and lentils will offer the protein you need in your diet. Additionally, healthy fats in the form of Omega-3 fatty acids will help nourish your hair. Snack on walnuts, pumpkin seeds, salmon, or sardines to add natural oils to your hair. Creating healthy hair from the inside out is essential to your success when the weather gets warmer and more humid.
For people who have curly hair, warmer months can be a real hardship. Dealing with the humidity which causes frizz and flyaways is no easy task. Sheer Remedy is the perfect solution. With a silk protein and silk amino base, this product will provide strength and smoothness to keep your curls where you want them. Apply it on wet or dry hair to tame the frizz, and you will have the smoothness and shine you need for your hair to look its best.
Our Thermal Foam is an excellent way to protect your hair. Apply it evenly to your hair and you will be able to work out the tangles before you style. Being gentle with dry or coarse hair is vital. Our Thermal Foam penetrates your hair’s cortex, to fortify every strand of hair and help it to dry faster. The less time with heat, the less dry your hair will be.
If your hair is already thin or oily, be careful to not use too much conditioner, which can exacerbate the problem. Using a product such as a clarifying shampoo for your hair type will help. Find one with wheat protein that can help remove excess oils from your scalp. A volumizing shampoo can also help add vibrancy to your hair.
For a lightweight conditioner that will not weigh your thin hair down, try our Prep and Primer. This leave-in protective treatment will detangle your thin hair so you can avoid breakage, and because it is our special non-greasy formula, this will not make your oily hair problem worse.
With flowers in bloom and nature coming alive, spring is the perfect time to think about coloring your hair. And as much as you want to enjoy that look, color-treating your hair can make it more susceptible to being dry and damaged. The best thing you can do is to make sure your hair is nourished to avoid as much breakage as possible. Our Neo Bond system is the perfect therapy for the job. Steps one and two can be done right in the salon when your hair is colored, and their Bio-Shield Technology creates new bonds in your hair and reconnects existing bonds, preventing damage before it can begin. Neo Bond #3 is a conditioner you can take home and continue using, moisturizing your hair between salon visits.
Another way to keep the frizz and humidity away is to make sure to use a hair spray to hold your hair-do together once you have styled it. Our Variable Hold Hair Spray is the perfect product to create volume, shape, and definition in your hair without crunchiness or stiffness.
As the weather warms, meet the milder days with confidence in your healthy head of hair. Wash your hair correctly, eat a balanced diet, and let FHI Heat provide the styling products you need no matter what your hair type.
