SKILLS Talk – Episode 6 “THESE BAD HABITS ARE DAMAGING YOUR HAIR”

 

In this episode, our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about some of the most common bad habits that people do that are damaging their hair.

 

1. Using Commercial Shampoo over Chemical-free Shampoo

You should always avoid using a shampoo that has both Sulfates and Parabens because they strip your hair of its natural oils, making it dry and brittle. Instead, use natural shampoos that are made with natural plant oils and herb extracts, most commonly that has coconut oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, and Also don’t forget to use Conditioner because the shampoo alone is not enough.

2. Doing your Blowdrying near to the scalp

Holding the dryer too close for too long can literally fry the hair and burn the scalp, potentially causing permanent damage to the hair follicles resulting in hair loss and bald patches.

Blowdrying your hair too close and Brushing your hair too tight.

Never blowdry too near your scalp and brush your hair too rough with the brush.

3. Sleeping with Hair Product on your Hair

Products can leave a thick residue on your scalp if it’s not properly washed off, this can clog the pores of your scalp and cause hair follicle reduction. That it means your hair start to grow thinner, weaker, more brittle hairs – which can give an appearance of hair loss.

Hair Products can clog your pores if not washed properly before you sleep.

4. Drying your hair forcefully with the towel

Using a towel is not generally bad but just rubbing your wet hair forcefully with a towel can lead to excessive hair breakage and hair fall. Its thick absorbent fibers when rubbed with the hair actually do more harm than good.

The hair can also become extremely frizzy as the towel ruffles up the cuticles of the hair. Moreover, the weight of the towel itself pulls down the hair, causing vulnerable strands to break.

 

Drying your Hair Roughly with the Towel

Another Bad Habit is Drying your hair Roughly with the Towel.

5. Neglecting to moisturize your hair after swimming in the pool or beach.

Both the chlorine and saltwater dry out the hair and strip away its natural oil, making the hair drier and thin. That’s why it is very important to rinse your hair after your swim to wash out all the chlorine and bacteria that was soaked up by your strands to avoid further damage.

It is advisable to have the Keratin Hair Treatment done after the Hair Straightening Treatment so that you can treat your hair and give it a much healthier and straighter look, as well as combining both treatments can lengthen the duration of the treatment. As normally the Keratin lasts for 2-3 months and the Straightening lasts 6-8 weeks.

SKILLS Talk – Episode 2 “THE KERATIN HAIR TREATMENT IS NOT FOR STRAIGHTENING”

 

In this episode our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about the common misconception of the Keratin Hair Treatment, what is the Keratin Treatment? and does it really straighten the Hair? Let’s find out!

 

Keratin Protein found in Hair

Keratin Protein found in Hair Strands, skin and in our Nails

 

Keratin is a natural type of protein found in your skin, hair, and nails. This protein forms fibers that make it strong. It acts as an external protective and internal structural protein to protect your hair and keep them healthy.

 

Due to exposure to external factors like the sun (Most especially here in the Middle East), chemicals from your styling products, or changes in your lifestyle, the keratin which is present in the hair gets depleted. This loss is the result that leads to dry, damaged, and dull hair.

 

Unhealthy/Damaged Hair

Unhealthy and Damaged Hair

 

As mentioned above, The Keratin Hair Treatment doesn’t have the purpose of having your hair straight. The reason why you think like that is because of the process of doing the Keratin as it involves using the blow-dry to remove the moisture and the main reason is the flat-iron that helps seal the solution upon application.
