5 most asked hair questions
  • Nourish from within: As we’ve said many times focusing on a balanced diet rich in protein, iron, vitamins B12 and D, and omega-3 fatty acids helps support hair growth. Consider biotin, collogen, and niacin supplements as well, but we always recommend consulting your doctor incase these supplements interfere with medications or health conditions.
  • Scalp care is crucial: Blood flow is the key to your hair’s growth. It is vital to massage your scalp daily to improve blood circulation and nutrient delivery. Most people only wash their hair, but the most crucial part of your hair washing routine is to massage the scalp. This will increase blood flow to the scalp and help to exfoliate removing dead skin cells stimulating follicles. If you wash your hair only once or twice a week, make sure to give your scalp some love each day with a little scalp massage.
  • Minimize breakage: Avoid harsh styling techniques, excessive heat, and tight hairstyles. Use heat protectant sprays like KINESSENCES™ Antiox or any of the KINACTIF™ Extracts to protect and keep hair tangle free all day. Satin pillowcases help to reduce friction on the hair for those wild child sleepers.
  • Condition regularly: Deep condition once a week to replenish moisture and promote healthy hair growth. Consider hair masks like KINESSENCES™ Nourish Intense Mask infused with natural the ingredients of avocado, jojoba oil, and or aloe vera.
  • Trim regularly: This is always the hardest concept for those who covet long locks to grasp. But sometimes you need to listen to the experts. We don’t mean inches snipped away on the floor. Before you move on to the 2nd of the 5 most asked hair questions hear us out on this.

The more you brush and touch the bigger and frizzier your hair becomes. Check out our blog tips and tricks on how to style curly hair.

4. How Can I Color My Hair Without Damaging It?

Okay, let’s be real here. Hair color is fun, at least we think so, but it does cause some damage to the hair. The key is to minimize the damage. and create beautiful shades. Whether your goal is vibrant shades of candy apple red, the pale hues of a rainbow, or hints of natural browns coppers and blondes, we most defiantly advise you to leave the box color on the self and call a color specialist. Here are our expert tips:

  • Choose the right shade: The more you divert from your natural hair color the more damage is caused. But it is totally possible to do a drastic change in your hair color with careful and slow color processing. The biggest damage we see at BLU Salon is from high levels of peroxide left on the hair for long periods of time causing the hair to break down and become “over processed”. Great healthy hair color can be a little pricy because of the education a hairstylist has in hair color and the time it takes for them to create your dream hair color.
  • Find a reputable stylist: Opt for a professional who uses high-quality hair color and understands the science of hair color, and we encourage you to consider quality over cost. If your desired hair color is out of your price range, discuss your budget with your hairstylist to come up with a plan that you can afford.
  • Pre-treat your hair: Apply deep conditioning and reconstructive treatments before and after coloring to minimize damage. Ask your hairstylist about pro reconstructive treatments that are offered in the salon after coloring. These treatments are well worth the extra time and generally are very affordable to add on to your color service.
  • Use color-safe products: Choose shampoos, conditioners, and styling products specifically formulated for color-treated hair. We stress knowing the pH of your shampoo and conditioner. Any professional home care product designed for colored hair should have a pH of less then 5.5. If the bottle doesn’t say, ask your stylist, or you can check the pH of your hair products by simply using a pH stick to test at home.
