At-Home Hair Tips From My Stylist

Not only is maintaining healthy and shiny hair beneficial for your personal hygiene, which affects overall health, but when you’re hair looks good, you definitely feel good! It is no secret that our “bad hair days” can affect our moods and overall confidence. It is important to maintain a daily hair care regimen to go along with your skin care regimen that we hope you have perfected by now! 
We had a chance to speak with Ashley, a stylist at Reflections Hair Studio & Spa, who specializes in new color and highlighting trends, as well as nail care. Ashley gave us a little insight on her favorite H&H Science Hair Care product, as well as some tips for at-home hair care!

Q:  What is your favorite H&H Science Hair Care product?

Ashley: The Follicle Stimulating Serum is my absolute favorite as it stimulates the hair follicle  to grow in thicker and fuller. I have seen a difference in not only the fullness but new hair growth as well.

Q:  What is the importance of an at-home hair care regimen for health and volume?

Ashley: Using the Detox My Hair Kit once a week is a must in order to maintain healthy hair. This kit helps create more shine, as well as producing softer and easier-to-manage hair, as it removes all product buildup and any mineral deposits in the hair.

Q:  Do you have any winter hair tips to keep hair hydrated during the colder months?

Ashley: Argan Oil is the best humectant for the hair; it definitely helps draw in moisture. I recommend trying the H&H Science Argan Oil Conditioner in the shower and leave it on for 10 minutes. Using this conditioner as a masque will really lock in moisture. I promise your hair will thank you!

Summertime Sadness: Hair Edition

School is in session, fall sports have started and autumn is almost upon us. It is no secret that the harsh sun has an effect on your skin, with UV exposure being the basis of so many skin conditions and diseases. Aside from harming your skin, it also does a number on your hair. Now that the fun summer activities are coming to a close, it is time to repair your hair from the aftermath of severe exposure to UV rays and chemicals. From the hot sun to chlorinated water, summer can leave your hair damaged and dry.

The sun does more than just fade the color of your hair, whether natural or color-treated. It can leave your hair dry and craving moisture. Replacing this lost moisture is pivotal, in order to avoid dry and brittle hair. Enriched with Argan Oil, H&H Science’s Moisturizing Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner helps hydrate your locks, while also providing your hair with a natural UV protectant.

While it isn’t summer without swimming pools, chlorinated water can be incredibly drying and irritating. As chlorine is used to kill bacteria in pools, it is no surprise that it causes a lot of damage on your hair. Your hair begins to absorb this chemical, stripping your strands of its natural lubricant. This often leads to split ends and frequent breaking. You don’t need to run to the salon to get your hair chopped off after the first sight of split-end mess. Taking care of your hair and providing it with the moisture it needs will help nourish your hair and bring it back to life.

As most of you know, swimming pools can turn your hair into a brassy green color. Although most believe that this is from the exposure to the chlorine itself, it is actually chlorine’s interaction with copper and other metals that causes this. Chlorine causes small amounts of metal to enter the water, which in turn, tints your hair this brassy color.

Detoxing your hair after all of the damage that summer brings is crucial. H&H Science’s Detox My Hair Kit works to cleanse and purify your strands, while leaving it manageable and shiny. The Deep Detox Treatment that is included in this kit is a keratin-infused conditioning treatment that is supercharged with proteins to restore moisture, strengthen, stop frizz and reduce breakage, which is a perfect way to remove summer damage and start off fall with shiny and healthy hair.
