Learn the difference!!

Our stylist are always reading up online to find the best way to educate their clients on their hair! Today they have found this amazing read about why box dye is actually the worst!!! The link to the post will be at the end!

Here is a quick read from the blog post;

"Knowledge is power, so let’s break down exactly how box dyes work versus professional dyes.

Professional Dye: Deposits color molecules on the inside of the hair cuticle where the natural melanin lives. These molecules are larger and more numerous than your natural melanin, so they end up taking over and becoming the dominant color.
Box Dye: Stains the proteins in the cortex, changing their chemical makeup. Since hair is about 90% protein, this means that your hair is basically no longer your hair. It has now been physically changed. That caterpillar is now a ratchet-a*s butterfly."

This blog post is very educational and explains the science behind why going to your stylist for your root touch up or total color change is defiantly the way to go! Book a consultation with one of our talent stylist if you are thinking of changing things up! Just like the blog says, please avoid the box color aisle!!

Top Causes Behind Dry Skin

Weather / Environmental elements
Cold winds and low temperatures can dry out skin, depriving it of balanced levels of oils, and contributing to premature aging.
Prolonged exposure to the sun causes water to evaporate from skin. Forced air heating also dries out skin: warm, dry air acts like a sponge, soaking up moisture from everything it touches.

The trend of low-fat or fat-free diets can deprive our bodies of skin-friendly Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) critical to all parts of a healthy functioning body. They help protect against water loss within cells and throughout skin, helping to prevent dryness, keeping skin supple and hydrated. An EFA deficiency can result in chronic itching, dryness, scaling, and thinning.
Smoking can have a drying effect on skin: it drains skin and body of vitamins A and C and constricts blood vessels (which equates to less blood flow) – meaning smoking is somewhat like suffocating skin from the inside.
Excess intake of alcoholic beverages and certain medications (such as nasal decongestants) can also contribute to dry skin.
