  • Keep hair cleansed. Remember to keep hair cleansed properly using a clarifying shampoo for the first shampoo. This will remove all impurities and residues that will prevent moisture from penetrating to the hair shaft. Secondly shampoo with a moisturizing shampoo. Which will add moisture and softness to your hair. Always follow manufacturer directions. Try the DETOXIPHI.

  • Condition, Condition, Condition. Conditioning hair properly with regular conditioning treatments helps prevent breakage, adds moisture, body and shine to each hair strand. Also use a leave in conditioner. Try the MOISTURE SANDWICH. This rebuilds damaged hair strands by filling holes in the hair strands with protein and sealing the protein with moisture leaving hair full of body and natural shine.
  • Be very gentle with hair while it is wet. Hair is very delicate in this state. Always use a wide tooth comb starting from ends to roots. Never use a brush when wet.
  • Chemically treated clients. If your hair has been chemically (relaxed or colored) treated, this puts hair at greater risk for hair and scalp to become dry or damaged if lack of conditioning.
  • Trim ends consistently. Relaxed hair, trim 6-8 weeks. Natural hair, trim every 3-6 months. Think of hair as a rope. If you cut the rope over a period of time the rope starts to unravel. Hair does the same thing. Split ends should be trimmed regularly to prevent breakage or damage.
  • Reduce the amount of thermal styling. Too much thermal styling at a high temperature can cause thermal damage to hair shaft. If thermal styling is necessary turn down temperature on tools and use thermal protecting products to reduce hair damage. Wear protective styles. Styles you don’t put your hands in every day.
