Perfectly Undone Hair Trending in 2015

Perfectly Undone Hair Trending in 2015

Perfectly undone hair seems to be the big trend in 2015. The runways are moving away from clean polished waves and toward loose knots, messy air-dried hair and deconstructed hairstyles with just the minimal amount of blending and smoothing.  This seemingly low-maintenance hair trend is just the opposite.  With the focus moving away for a perfectly smooth blow out, the focus is on amazing color.  For your hair to look fabulous and polished without styling you color must be vibrant, shiny and brilliant at all times. Healthy, strong and shiny hair is a vital component to pulling off the deconstructed undone hair style trend in 2015.

**remember there is a big difference between “seemingly effortless” and just leaving the gym!

Fifty shades of grey stars Dakota Johnson and  Jamie Dornan truly have this trend on lockdown. Check out how they pulled off this trend below.

SPLIT ENDS… WHY THEY HAPPEN AND HOW TO CURE THEM!

SPLIT ENDS… WHY THEY HAPPEN AND HOW TO CURE THEM!

We are all too familiar with split ends…. so lets get down to what causes them, how to get rid of them and the best prevention.

We always promote healthy shiny hair and want you to keep your hair looking fabulous, even when your home.

What Causes Split Ends?

Dry brittle hair is a sure sin that your hair is over processed and lacking vital moisture and nourishment. Some of the daily culprits damaging your hair….

  • hot styling tools used on the regular ( blow dryers on high heat, curling irons, flat irons….)
  • Harsh chemical treatments .. (relaxers, Brazilian Treatments, perms, and BLEACH!)
  • Brushing wet hair (always use a comb or a “wet” brush to detangle wet hair)
  • Rough towel drying
  • Not receiving regular hair cuts or trims

Getting rid of split ends….

Unfortunately there is no cure for split ends other then cutting them off.  If you don’t trim your split ends they will continue to break and split higher and higher.  Although it may be difficult to part with length you want your hair frizz free, thick and manageable… the first step is cut them off.  But not to worry we will tell you how to prevent future split ends!

Preventing split ends!

Always keep your hair moisturized and nourished that is the main thing in keeping you hair strong and healthy

  • Keep your hair nourished and shiny with deep conditioning masks, regular glazes and eating lots of healthy fats (avocado, olive oil) and lots of water
  • Using a heat protectant styling product prior to using hot tools will help prevent heat damage
  • Towel dry your hair gently – do not harshly twist and wring it
  • Detangle your hair gently use a comb starting with your ends.

How Maintain Your Hair Color

How Maintain Your Hair Color

It Starts With Shampoo!

Look at your shampoo bottle, does it say “safe for color treated hair”? Now turn it over and read the ingredients… do you see “sulfates”? Many shampoo’s use sulfates to make the product foam…  the issues with sulfates are that they pull your color out leaving it dull, lackluster and causes it to fade faster.

Try a tinted shampoo (they’re not just for blondes!)  since color is deposited make sure to check with your stylist.. you do not want to change your hair color or add build up.

Also, stay away from clarifying shampoos, which will strip the color from your strands. All of Tomy B. Products are sulfate and paraben free sure to maintain your hair color for long lasting brilliance.

Moisturize!

Dry, brittle hair will not hold color as long as moist, healthy hair. It is very important to keep your hair healthy and hydrated for shine, strength elasticity and color retention. We know its difficult but limit your heat styling especially flat irons, and use a deep conditioning mask—Tomy B. Vanilla Deep Conditioning Mask not only infuses incredible moisture but smells delicious as well!

Protect Against The Sun

Your hair needs UV protection just as much as your skin does. The sun will oxidize your hair and turn your hair color much lighter. The sun’s rays will cause your color to fade—so heres how to protect against it.

1. Cover up as much as possible.. bandanas, hats, headbands and clips…

2. Use a leave-in conditioner with UVA/UVB protection. Try Tomy B. Miracle Detangler

Hot Water Fades Color

While a hot shower feels amazing after a long day, it is definitely not the best thing for your hair color.  Wash your hair with lukewarm water and if you’re still craving the heat opt for a shower cap or nice hot bath!

Glaze Your Hair!

If you truly want to protect your hair color from fading, opt for a glaze.  Glazing your hair is almost like a sealer for your hair color, not only do you get amazing shine but your adding a protective layer between your hair color and the environment.

Go For Monthly Touch-ups

Coloring your hair every 4-6 weeks is not just to cover grey its also to one your hair and maintain its radiance.  If you wait too long for a touch up you hair will fade so much that your root color will not match the rest of your hair.  Proper maintenance will help keep your color shiny, vibrant and consistent
