How do you care for your hair? What hair products are right for you? If you don’t know, you’re not alone. A recent hair care survey by Impulse Research found many women make hair mistakes. Here are tips to help you get the most from your hair Long Hair CareFifty-three percent of women surveyed have longer than shoulder-length hair and 55 percent have had the same style for more than 12 months. To keep your hair looking great and feeling healthy, or if you’re looking for a new style, remember these tips • Regis Salons stylists recommend a quarter-inch trim every five weeks to prevent damage caused by split ends.• Cutting layers into long hair gives it shape and manageability. Adding fringe creates softness and definition while providing more styling options.• Highlights and lowlights create texture and dimension without cutting layers.That’s HotEven though 75 percent of women use heat styling tools such as curling irons and blow-dryers, only 16 percent use thermal protection products regularly. Thermal protection products, such as Regis designLINE Get It Pressed Flat Iron Spray, prevent hair from heat damage. Sixty-five percent said that they use a blow-dryer daily. Here are a few things to look for in a blow-dryer• Ionic blow-dryers reduce drying time to eliminate frizz and add body. • A cooler setting or “cold shot” on blow-dryers is used to set a style once hair is dry. • Stylists from MasterCuts, a family-oriented salon, recommend adding a diffuser to enhance curls and create volume and texture. Pick a ProductThe right product can add volume, hold, shine or curls. A stylist at a product-focused salon such as Trade Secret can help you identify your hair type and find the products it needs. Here are some guidelines• The heavier and coarser your hair, the heavier your product needs to be. Gel is great for supporting heavy hair and pomade and wax separate and define your style. • If you have fine- or medium-textured hair, choose a lightweight product. Mousse provides definition and support and is a lighter styling solution than gel or pomade. • Hairspray comes in a variety of strengths, from flexible to firm holds, and works with any hairstyle.• Shine and smoothing serums add sheen to hair while controlling frizz. They come in a variety of weights so there’s a formula for all hair types.
