Usually change is a positive, healthy influence in our lives. But one thing that doesn’t handle change so well is our hair. It’s tempting to dye, bleach, perm and flat iron our hair all the time, but sooner or later you’re going to start seeing the negative effects this can have on your tresses. Instead of just chopping all of your dead hair off, it’s important to be using products that can revitalize it. Viva Bella Salon Hair Stylist Dalena Spickler says, “Having healthy hair makes you feel and look great!”
Here are a few products that we think you’ll love for bringing life back into your locks.
Pureology Strength Cure Fabulous Lengths Treatment
This product is great for when your hair is showing a lot of breakage. It not only helps strengthen your hair fibers to reduce breakage, but also acts as a heat protectant to prevent further damage.
Lush Rehab Shampoo
Lush products are always trustworthy because they’re made from all-natural ingredients. This shampoo is all about reviving damaged hair. It’s made of fresh fruit juices, oils and herbs that work from the scalp all the way to the ends of the hair to restore vitality.
Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask
If your hair is very damaged or if you are looking to prevent damage (which you should be if you use heat on your hair), this hair mask is definitely one to keep handy. With shea butter, argan oil and proteins, it restores and strengthens hair. The directions say to keep it on 5-7 minutes, but try leaving it on for an hour or so with a shower cap for even more awesome benefits.
Nubond is a 30-minute hair treatment that fixes damaged hair using chemical bonds. “Nubond is great because it helps make your hair healthy again after chemical and heat styling,” Spickler says. When getting your hair colored, this is the perfect product to use beforehand. This treatment is available at Viva Bella Salon downtown, but you can also find at-home daily Nubond treatments!
Salon Quality Products
Drug store shampoos often use similar-quality ingredients as salons, but they don’t use nearly as much in their products. You can also never be sure how long drug store products are sitting on the shelves, whereas salons are more reliable because their product turnover is quicker. Spickler says, “Changing your store brand shampoo out for salon products is a game-changer in how your hair feels, looks, and overall manageability. “
None of these products should replace getting your hair cut when need be, but they will definitely help keep your hair flexible, shiny and strong!
