I get asked a lot about hair products. Everyone wants to know why they are so important, which ones are “right,” and if they are worth using. Often times there is a huge misconception about hair care products. People think they don’t work. Well if you are using the wrong product for your hair type, then yes, you might feel as though it isn’t “working.” This is why knowledge is king. Finding the right product for your hair can change everything!
People with fine thin hair want more volume and body may feel that mousse or bodifying products are too heavy or sticky on their hair. Or those with thick, curly hair might feel that gel is too much like glue or cement in their hair. Women with straight hair (that have a hard time holding a curl) tend to feel as though a setting lotion, or heat activated styling aid, doesn’t do anything to help their style.
This can all be true… if you are using the wrong product.
Product selection is super important when it comes to finding the right product specific to your own individual needs. Hair care products can be a very personal journey. Some feel aerosol sprays are terrible for the environment. Some prefer organic products. Some love the feeling of oils while others hate using any type of oil. This is why you need to be educated by a knowledgeable stylist (such as myself!) to help guide you to happy hair.
I carry a big selection of products from 4 different product lines that I sell at my salon. I chose each and every one of them with my clients and their many requests, needs and wants in mind. I love my product lines because they all offer something for everyone.
I have Alfaparf products that are known for their wonderfully conditioning and repairative shampoo and conditioners. Their styling aides ranging from mousse to hairspray to pomade that offer fabulous hold without leaving a build up on your hair.
Then, I have Neuma products which is an all organic, gluten free line. Neuma shampoo gives a great lather, which differs from other organic products which tend to never quite “suds up.” Neuma styling aids range in their level of hold. Their mousse is the best for fine thin hair and never leaves the hair feeling heavy. The smoothing cream, blow dry lotion, and pomade have a wonderful scent that is to die for. You feel as though you are at a spa when you use these products. Read more about Neuma products on my blog about Neuma: here.
For my curly haired ladies, I of course carry Ouidad products because I am a certified Ouidad stylist which allows me the honor of being able to carry these products in my salon. I have several types of shampoo and conditioners, as well as styling aids such as mousse, gel, sulfate free co wash, and more.
And finally I have Moroccan Oil products which many of you are familiar with. Their moisture shampoo and conditioner are fabulous as well as their oils and hairspray.
If you are looking to help enhance your hairstyle but just don’t know where to start, please call me or message me. I can lead you in the right direction to help figure out what product is best for your specific needs. I can help show you how to use it (how not to use it) and the best combination of products for you. I am so excited to help you love your hair.
