Tip of the Month: Egg Based Shampoo

Eggs are natural moisturizers, which make them a good ingredient for shampoos.

To create egg shampoo, mix an egg yolk with olive oil and water. Lather it and use it when it's formed a consistency to your liking. You'll love the moisture this adds to your hair - especially in the dry winter months!

Tip of the Month: Hair Growth

There is no way to speed up the growth of hair but you can keep it healthy.

Regular trimming (dusting) every six to eight weeks will keep thin ends in check. Watch your diet as well - make sure you get sufficient vitamins and minerals especially B 12 and Iron. Avoid tight pony tails especially in wet hair. That last thing is to be courteous to your hair and don't over use tools with heat.

We invite you to consult with a Salon Jack stylist for questions and for any continuous interest on hair growth.

Tip of the Month: Hydration and Shine

Your hair needs hydrating just like you do and one of nature's best hydrators is coconut water. It's one of our favorite drinks and here's a secret - your hair will love it too. To give your hair a rich glossy shine, simply rinse in coconut water after shampooing!

Tip of the Month: Tricks from the Garden

Treat yourself to a natural beauty treatment straight from the garden. To help keep your beautiful long hair super shiny and in great shape, we recommend applying Aloe Vera fresh from the garden directly to your scalp. Gently comb through then rinse with cool water.

No time for an aloe treatment? Get the benefits in your normal styling routine simply by adding aloe to your usual conditioner.

Even if you don't have aloe in the garden you can still pamper your tresses - you can find natural aloe vera for sale in most health food stores!

Tip of the Month: Split Ends

Once your hair has split the damage is done and will require cutting, so protect it by keeping it supple and moisturized. Use a leave-in conditioner.

Blow drying the hair can damage it so always use a nozzle on your hairdryer concentrating on the hair shaft. If the damage has already been done, a serum applied to split ends will help disguise them and can help protect the hair when applying direct heat such as from curling tongs or heated rollers. The only real solution is to cut the offending ends off.

Tip of the Month: Color Saver!

To make your color last -- wait at least 48 hours after coloring hair to shampoo it. Every time you wet hair you open the cuticle -- so give hair time to seal in the color.

Tip of the Month: Scalp Massage!

Massage your hair and scalp simply daily after your bath or shower, as it improves blood circulation and prevents hair loss. Regular massage actuates sebaceous glands and makes your hair strong and shiny.

Tip of the Month: Winter Hair Care!

The dry and cold winter can be very damaging to your hair. Hair easily becomes dry during this time of year from the dry indoor heating and the dry cold weather outside. Proper preventative steps need to be taken during this seasons to ensure that your hair does not get damaged.


Tip of the Month: Dandruff Issues

Often I get questions on how to deal with this problem - especially in dry winter weather.

Here is an easy dandruff solution that seems to work well:

Put a few drops of tea tree oil in your shampoo. After shampooing, rinse and blot dry. Then wrapped your hair in a warm towel for about fifteen minutes. Expect to see results in just a couple days.


Winter Hair Care Tips

1. Wear a scarf, hat or cap to protect your hair from the cold and wind. Make sure that it's not so tight where it will restrict circulation in your scalp. A safe bet is the floppy hat -- fashionably it works on everyone.

2. Use a conditioner daily.

3. Once you have your hair moist, lock in the moisture by running your hair through cold water; this will also give your hair an extra shine.

4. Don't go outside with your hair wet during the winter months because you risk breakage. Your hair will freeze if it's cold enough outside and may break.

5. Limit your use of "hot" items on your hair such as a blow dryers and curling irons.

6. If you need to use a "hot" item, use a leave in conditioner before using the item on your hair.

7. Avoid taking hot showers or washing your hair in hot water. Use warm or cool water instead because the heat can dry out and/or damage your hair and skin.

8. Hair products that have the word "Replenish" on them are made to moisturize your hair. One to try - The Oribe hair care line includes hair replenishing and rebuilding properties in all their products, even their hairsprays.

9. Try using a dry shampoo if you need to wash out your hair. Don't like the dry look they can leave? Oribe has a dry shampoo that leaves a gloss finish instead of matte. Simply sprinkle or spray some onto your hair and comb it out.

Tip of the Month: Juice it Up!

Healthy hair starts with good nutrition. Try drinking a natural and healthy drink made from 1:1:1 ratio of carrot, alfalfa or simsim, and leaves of Lactuca sativa.  This is very good for your hair and will help to prevent hair breakage and loss.

Tip of the Month: Straighten Up

To help ensure you get the perfect haircut, it's important to remember to straighten up!  Maintaining perfect posture while you're getting your hair cut will allow your stylist to give you more even results.  Believe it or not, if you cross your legs, you throw off your alignment, which can result in a lopsided cut.

Tip of the Month: Frizz Free Curls

Don’t touch your curls! Don’t touch your hair even though it’s tempting   The more you play with and tousle your hair during the day, the more frizz you’re going to get.

If you need to, you can perform a mid-day touch up by moistening broken curls and wrapping them around your finger to reshape them.

Tip of the Month: Healthy Shiny Color

Here is a comprehensive list of the things to keep in mind if you have color treated hair:

• Oils from the scalp and everyday dirt can build up, diminishing the natural shine and color, so if your hair is looking especially dull, it may be time to wash it.

• Water, however, can cause two types of problems for color treated hair. The more porous structure of color treated hair allows for water to wash the color molecules out of the hair’s cortex and lead to color fade. In addition, mineral deposits from tap water can collect on the altered surface of color treated hair, scattering light and sacrificing hair’s shine and vibrancy. Oribe Color Hair Solutions shampoos, conditioners, and treatments, help address both of these water-related issues.

• UV light is the enemy of color treated hair, as it can break down hair’s proteins and pigments, altering its shine, strength and color. Wear a hat to protect hair from sunlight if you’re going to be exposed to strong sunlight for an extended time.

• Whether you color at home or at a salon, be sure to help seal your color with a rich conditioner.

Tip of the Month: Towel Drying Etiquette

A scrubbing type motion while towel drying roughs up the cuticle, causes frizzy hair, and diminishes the effects of conditioners and leave-ins. Wrapping a towel around the head can compress and mat curls. We encourage our clients to towel blot or gently squeeze excess wetness from the hair. This practice will benefit your hair's shine, bounce and vitality.

Tip of the Month: 5 Ways to Beautiful Soft Manageable Hair!

1) Be gentle when using heat on your hair. Heat-styling is shine-killer, so whenever possible, allow hair to air dry naturally. If air drying is not an option, set your styling tools on a low setting. If you can let your hair partially air dry, you can at least eliminate a large portion of the heat styling, which will be that much better for your hair.

2) Limit the use of hair sprays and gels containing alcohol. These products will ultimately leave your hair dry and brittle. Anti-frizz serum is a great alternative to gel. The serum will smooth your hair and leave it shiny and manageable.

3) Avoid shampooing your hair every day. Shampoo strips away natural oils from the scalp, robbing your hair of shine. Ideally, hair should be washed every 3 days or so, depending on how dry or oily your hair tends to be. Brush hair every day to distribute the natural oils to the ends of you hair.

4) Utilize natural hair remedies. For example, extra virgin olive oil can work miracles on dry, unruly hair. Adding a few drops to your normal conditioner will leave your hair silky smooth. Olive oil can also be used on clean, damp hair as a serum. Simply rub a few drops between your palms, and apply to you hair before styling.

5) Deep conditioning is one of the most effective hair care tips to keep hair healthy. To dramatically improve the look and feel of your hair, use a deep conditioner once a week. Avoid rinsing with hot water if possible. Instead, rinse with cool water to seal the hair cuticle and improve shine. A deep conditioner helps to protect your hair, keep it flexible and strong so that you have less breakage in between treatments.

Tip of the Month: Carbonated Water Rinse!

Carbonated water rinse -- Rinsing your hair with something other than your shower water can work wonders!  If you often let your curls air dry, this is a great remedy to eliminate hair frizz caused by humidity. After you wash your hair, give it a final rinse with carbonated or sparkling water. The reason carbonated or sparkling water reduces frizz is because of it’s low pH level.

Tip of the Month: Frizz Fighter!

A natural fabric softener can be a great way to make your hair less frizzy. Simple fun - use as any other conditioner and apply after shampooing. Keep some dryer sheets in your purse to use in a pinch and stroke the dryer sheet in a downward motion. Dryer sheets are also great for eliminating static cling.
