Guide to Growing Long Hair {Secrets Revealed}

Hello my gorgeous friends! I’m very excited to share with you today some secrets to growing long, healthy hair. {Which shouldn’t be secrets at all!} As a stylist I am constantly getting asked how to grow longer hair and how to grow it fast. Sit back, relax, and lets talk all about those luscious locks!

Eat Healthy & Drink Water

This may sound so basic but everything you put into your body affects your health and hair. Your hair needs certain nutrients to grow long and strong …mostly protein. {Sounds sexy, I agree.} We tend to think our protein needs to come from steak, chicken, and other meats- but it is also found in eggs and beans.  Plus, water cures everything!

Are you On Medications?

Certain medications, extreme diets and surgeries really affect your hair. If you have started a new medication and have noticed hair loss as a side effect be sure to mention this during a consultation with your doctor.

No tight buns or ponytails

Say yes to the scrunchie! Be kind to your locks and they will be kind to you. Do not pull tight or brush hard. Please, no sleeping with elastics in.

Minimize Stress

Breath. Relax.

See your stylist regularly

Trimming your hair really does matter. I explain to my clients to compare their hair to a piece of yarn. When you start to unravel the end {split ends} the yarn keeps splitting. If you cut off some of what you unraveled but not all of it, the split will continue to keep moving up the hair shaft. Be sure to see your stylist every 3 months, minimum.

Vitamins

Purchase a B Complex vitamin, these include 8 essential B vitamins that not only help your hair but also enhances your metabolism and energy.

Massage the scalp

Circulate the blood flow.

Deep Conditioners

Conditioning your hair is key! I have mentioned in a past blog all about repairing dry hair after summer is over. Be sure to let the conditioner set for awhile in the shower: shave your legs, exfoliate your face, pamper yourself. You will notice a huge difference in the health of your hair! {Side note: The past blog explains more, but, if your hair feels mushy when wet you need a protein treatment, not moisture!}

Take breaks away from the hot tools

Day to day I realize you need your blow dryer and flat iron to get ready for work or your hot date. But I suggest that on the weekends or over a holiday break you let your hair relax too. Enjoy a deep conditioning treatment in a hot shower, break out your scrunchies, grab some water and minimize that stress. You will have long, gorgeous hair in no time!

Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Treatment: Questions and Answers

 

img_2930-1

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Keratin?

How can I prevent frizz and shorten my blow dry time?

What could this treatment do for me?

Keratin is the protein which is naturally found in the hair and acts as a protective shield to humidity (which is the primary cause of frizz). Overtime your hair will lose this protective shield in spots or holes from everyday exposure to the sun, chemical damage and/or heat damage from styling tools. The Keratin Complex Smoothing Treatment then penetrates into the cuticle to strengthen the keratin bonds, smoothes the hair shaft and fills in those holes which we once had from missing that needed protein.

By replenishing lost keratin protein in your hair, the Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy treatments help repair damage and lock out humidity to reduce unwanted frizz. Your hair develops an overall smoother, shiner appearance and rebuilds strength once again. Another benefit is a reduced drying and styling, a normal blow dry time will easily be cut in half!

Do Keratin Complex treatments straighten the hair?

The Keratin Complex Smoothing treatments are not straightening treatments. These Smoothing Therapy treatments do reduce curl patterns in curly, waving or unruly hair providing a straightening effect but would not permanently change the structure of your hair.

Does my stylist need to be certified?

For this smoothing treatment brand, yes, all stylists using the product need to be trained and accredited. This ensures constantly beautiful results and the best quality to all salon clients. The Keratin Complex training is in-depth and hands-on, unlike some competitors who offer a quick online certification.

How long will my treatment last?

Treatment results will vary depending on which system you and your stylist choose, individual lifestyle, and at-home maintenance. The Natural Keratin Complex Smoothing Treatment will last up to six months where the Express Blowout Treatment will last up to six weeks.

Is the Keratin Treatment safe to get if I am pregnant or nursing? Are there fumes?

As with any chemical service, pregnant or nursing women should ask the advice of their doctor before use. The patent- pending process of the Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy allows stylists to work safely with NO odor or fumes released.

Price?

Price depends on your stylist, location, system chosen, length, and density of your hair.

If you are in the Troy, Missouri/ Lincoln County area and looking for a treatment near you or have any questions regarding this system my contact information is below.
