Undone Salon Tips for Maintaining Long Healthy Hair

According to many historical beliefs, the hair on your head is meant for more than just looking good. Since the biblical story of Sampson and Delilah, hair has been equated with magical powers. From a yogic perspective, hair is an amazing gift of nature that can actually help raise the Kundalini energy – creative life force, which increases vitality, intuition, and tranquility.

Of course there are also the cultural aspects of hair. Think about it. How we choose to wear our hair is an expression of our individuality. Flappers in the 1920’s cut their women’s hair short to proclaim equality. Hippies of the 1960’s grew their hair out for peace. In fact, the hair on our heads is often used to make political statements. Whether you have long, natural hair, hair extensions, or a permanent, isn’t it amazing that something as simple as a hairstyle can speak for generational and cultural movements?

No matter the reason, long hair requires maintenance. If you have long women’s hair, you probably want to take care of it in the healthiest possible way in order to preserve your luxurious locks.  Below are some helpful Boise hair salon tips and tricks that will help transform your tresses from drab to fab in no time:

Don’t flip

Flipping your hair or vigorously drying it with a towel can be a hard habit to break. Often these drying habits can damage your hair which causes split ends. Rejuvenating oils can help replenish and strengthen your hair. We like Rusk products like Rusk Deepshine® Protective Oil Treatment. With its marine mineral-enriched argan oil treatment, it helps to eliminate frizz, improves elasticity, and leaves hair soft and manageable.

Never use a comb on wet hair

Your Boise hair salon stylist will explain that when hair is wet, it has the extra weight of water in it. Therefore, it stretches more and breaks easier. Wait for hair to dry or use a detangling brush because it holds less tension and safety untangles wet hair compared to combing through wet locks with a regular brush or comb.

Make sure to schedule regular trims with your Boise hair salon stylist

If you have long women’s hair, you probably don’t like cutting off any of your luscious locks but scheduling a regular trim every six to eight weeks with your Boise hair salon stylist is vital. Cutting of damaged ends helps hair from developing split ends.

Choose the right products

Choosing the right shampoo & conditioner that suits your hair is important. Often times, people tend to choose the wrong products depending on their hair type. If you have dull, dry hair, use a product that specifically caters to strengthening and moisturizing your long, women’s hair. Talk to your Boise hair salon stylist to see what products would work best for your hair type.

Don’t shampoo as often

Its important not to shampoo your hair every day. Hot water and over-shampooing strips your hair of its natural oils contributing to further moisture loss of your long locks.

Get your daily dose of vitamin E

Whether you take it orally as a supplement or rub it into your hair, vitamin E is proven to help maintain healthy hair and skin. Not only does it help to strengthen your long hair, it helps with split ends as well.
