Love The One You’re With By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

Sometimes you and your hair just get sick and tired of each other. You squabble and fight. The result? You wear a hat or put it up in a ponytail because “it’s easier.”

May we suggest some hair counseling? Make a commitment to renew your relationship with your hair. Here’s how. Talk to us about the frustrations you’re having with it. We can give you some insights on why your hair seems so uncooperative.

Then use the products and styling tips we suggest and… practice, practice, practice!

Nobody, and we mean nobody, has perfect hair! It just looks like it. Why? Because they work with the texture of their hair to get the look they want. You can, too. We’d be happy to lend our expertise. Just ask.

3 Easy Ways To Winter Proof Your Hair By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

Yes, you can keep your hair looking healthy and shiny even during the cold winter months. Besides getting regular trims, we’ve got three other ways to give your hair the extra care it needs.

Deep condition. Honestly, this is one step you can use for both deep winter and in the middle of summer. You can do this one at home with our great salon quality products. We recommend weekly.

If your hair is still dry and lifeless, come in for a salon deep conditioning treatment. It will help jump start at home treatments. You’ll love the results!

Keep brush bristles natural. Natural bristles are much gentler on your hair than plastic bristles. They will help maintain natural shine, and avoid snagging and tearing.

The same is true for ponytail elastics. Make sure you use covered elastic to avoid snapping and breaking your hair.

Tame frizzies. Lack of moisture in the air can cause hair to become flyaway. Go easy on the blow drying by using a cool setting to finish.

Remember to use a heat styling spray for more protection. Apply styling serums to prevent static and to add more shine to your hair.

It doesn’t really take any more time to keep winter hair looking great. It’s just that winter often makes it feel that way!

It’s true. Sometimes in the quest of beauty, you over do it: too much coloring, too many hair products and styling tools. It happens to the best of us. It’s no wonder hair becomes dull and lifeless.

To get your hair shiny and cute again, take a hands off approach for awhile. Follow these six easy steps:

– De-gunk your hair. Use a clarifying shampoo to get rid of build up.

– Moisturize. If dryness is the culprit, use a moisturizing shampoo and deep condition weekly!

– Add shine. Dull hair can be perked up with a shine spray, mist or serum.

– Use the right styling brush. A brush with tightly packed bristles smoothes hair, giving it a glossy finish.

– Blow dry on cool or warm. Drying hair on a hot setting will only add to the damage.

– Protect hair from the elements. Whether it’s the beach or a cold, windy day, cover your hair and spray those locks with a sun block designed for hair.

You can get dull hair bouncy, shiny and manageable again. Got questions? That’s what we’re here for!

Top 5 Most Common Hair Mistakes Solved! By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

Sometimes in the pursuit of healthy, shiny hair, we find that our clients unknowingly sabotage their efforts! So we thought we would set the record straight.

Here are the top 5 hair care mistakes we see.

Mistake #1- Only Conditioning The Ends Of Your Hair

Women mistakenly think that conditioner should be applied to the lower half of their hair because it “weighs it down.” Choose one that is right for your hair texture and let ALL of your hair enjoy the benefit.

Mistake #2-Not Using A Heat Protective Styling Product

With all the heat that is applied to hair, this one is an absolute MUST. Hot tools can cause breakage, making your hair feel dry and brittle. Insulate it! Using a heat protecting spray before you style.

Mistake #3-Skipping Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatments

This one is crucial, especially if you are not using a daily conditioner properly. Deep conditioning helps to fill in any holes, as well as repair roughed up patches of hair. It works instantly to strengthen and soften.

Mistake #4-Rough Towel Drying

You’re late for work so you’re rubbing your hair wildly. Unfortunately, it won’t speed up the towel drying time. Instead, spritz detangling spray all over. Then squeeze out water with a super soft towel. Now your hair is a cinch to comb!

Mistake #5-Tearing Through Knots With A Brush

It’s tempting, when you’re in a hurry, to race through brushing your hair. But for hair that is prone to knotting, it’s the worst possible idea! Instead, start from the bottom up to loosen knots. The best trick to prevent knot-proned hair? A daily conditioner.

See, it’s not that hard to have beautiful hair. Got questions? We’re here to help!

Don’t Panic If Your Child Has Head Lice! By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

No parent ever wants to deal with head lice. The very thought is disgusting, isn’t it?

But it happens.

Panicking won’t solve anything, but it could cause you to over treat the problem as well as create anxiety in your child. (“I’ve got bugs in my hair!”)

If it does happen, you need to know right away that head lice are not caused by a lack of good hygiene. That’s a myth.

Nor is it transferred to or from pets. It’s strictly a human infestation that is passed directly with head-to-head contact.

That’s why it’s commonly seen in youngsters 3-11 years of age. Children like to huddle together to tell secrets, hug, or put their heads together to read a book.

Certainly, you don’t want t to teach your child to be phobic about touching other kids. Just teach them that some things are not meant for sharing. For example, brush, comb, scarves and hats.

To treat head lice, purchase an anti-lice shampoo such as Rid or Nix. Shampoo and leave in for one-minute, then rinse out. Follow up with a second shampoo seven days later. This is extremely important because it will kill any eggs that were hatched in the interim. (Yes, it’s gross to think about it!)

While your child’s hair is still wet, comb the hair with a lice comb to pull out the nits, or eggs.

If shampooing with over-the-counter anti-lice shampoo does not kill the infestation, consult your pediatrician for a stronger product.

Remember, head lice are the equivalent of fleas on pets. It’s not the end of the world. With treatment, you’ll get through this just fine.

Is This Causing Your Frequent Bad Hair Days? By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

You probably don’t think much about your scalp, especially if you’re having multiple bad hair days.

However, sometimes the problems with your hair start with your scalp!

Believe it or not, your scalp is more delicate than you think. It needs to be nourished just like your hair.

That’s one big reason we don’t recommend conditioning just the ends of your hair. You’re just drying out your scalp.

Even oily hair needs scalp conditioning for top hair performance. And fine hair?

You should notice thicker hair after three months. But wait there’s more!

Using the right shampoo and conditioner is only half the answer.

Equally important to the process is massage. You’re not only removing dead skin cells and excess oil, you’re boosting circulation, just like exercise does for your body.

Remember to use the balls of your fingers when you massage, not your nails, which simply scratch your scalp.

Give it two weeks to see an initial difference. We think you’ll love the results!

The Dry, Brittle Hair Diet By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

Sometimes dry hair is caused by over styling, over coloring, and lack of good maintenance care. But, it can also be caused by dietary deficiencies. To strengthen your hair and your health, include vitamin A to act as a lubricant to reduce dryness.

Fatty fish like salmon, herring and mackerel are great natural sources of this vitamin, as well as carrots, red peppers, sweet potatoes, spinach, butternut squash and apricots. Yum!

But think twice about adding vitamin A as a dietary supplement. Too much can have an adverse effect on your body. It’s best to stick to food sources.

Vitamin B5 will help to restore dry hair to a healthy, shiny appearance. It also stimulates the growth and repair of your hair. Snack on nuts in moderation throughout the day and eat eggs, brown rice and liver.

And, of course, a great hair helper is protein as well as healthy fats like olive oil and avocado. Feeding your hair a good diet makes your appearance and our job so much easier!

5 Tips For Your Summer Hair Survival Kit By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

Aaah, summer! It means fun and sun. What’s not to love?

Just make sure you add these 5 tips to your beach bag for hair that looks beautiful all season.

1. Enhance Your Shine. Don’t let summer sun dull your hair. Get a gloss treatment. It’s a lot like a topcoat for your hair, sealing in the hair cuticle and creating lots of shine. Your hair will look fresh even in the worst heat.

2. Trim your ends. Don’t even think about skipping this essential tip! For beautiful, healthy hair, get your ends trimmed every 4-6 weeks.

3. Clarify your color. Between chlorine and sun your hair doesn’t really stand a chance. Chlorine is very drying and can cause your hair to change color. To prevent freshly colored hair from fading, use a clarifying shampoo right after you get out of the pool, then condition.

4. Skip heat styling. Go for a ponytail, messy half updo, or hair accessories. Just give your hair a break from so much heat. If you must heat style, use a heat styling protectant!

5. Banish oily strands. Sun and fun can cause hair to get oily and greasy. Keep a dry shampoo handy to refresh your style.

Before you even get to the beach, use a moisturizing shampoo. Leave in some conditioner to help your hair soak in much needed moisture and protect it from the sun’s rays.

There you have it. It just takes a little planning to keep your hair looking beautiful!

Your Summer Hair Problems Solved By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

Instead of beachy waves, you’ve greasy and limp…or frizzy…or brittle hair.

Summer sun is very hard on hair. So how can you manage—dare we say, even tame—the elements?

It’s possible, so listen up!

Let’s start with chlorine water. It really can change the colour of your locks, especially if your hair is very light.
Chlorine can also make your hair very brittle. So before you jump into that inviting pool, soak your hair with plain water.

It will bind to your hair making it harder for the chlorine to get in. You can also use a leave in conditioner to achieve the same results.

Follow with a hair mask to repair damage and seal the cuticle.

Got greasy hair? In the summer, washing your hair, especially if it’s longer is fine. Sunscreen from your back and shoulders makes hair dirtier. Go for it!

Sun damaged hair. The sun breaks down strong keratin bonds causing weaker strands and fading colour. Use a UV hair product to protect those locks., then follow with a leave in conditioner.

Frizz. Stay away from heavy products. Use anti-frizz serum or stray and silicone-based products to tame and smooth.

Now you’re ready for summer fun!
