A semi-permanent gloss can protect your hair

February 14, 2012 -- Urban Salon Finder

A semi-permanent gloss is a perfect way to experiment with hair color because it only deposits pigments within the cuticle layers so it shampoos out within 6 to 8 washes.  A semi-permanent gloss also adds shine and coats the hair shaft, thus protecting your hair from heat-induced damage.

Less is more when it comes to styling products

July 19, 2013 -- Urban Salon Finder

Unfortunately, the perfect amount of styling product that works best in your hair can only be determined through trial and error.  When trying a new product, first apply a dime-sized amount to a section of hair and then observe.  If it looks good, then continue applying the same amount to each section of your hair until complete.  If you haven't achieved the desired effect, try increasing to a nickel-sized amount and apply to another section of hair.  Compare results.  If you still aren't satisfied, try increasing to a quarter-sized amount and then compare results.  At this point, if it still isn't working, then maybe it isn't the right product for you.  Sometimes, in cases of frizz or lack of shine, the problem is best corrected with proper cleansing and conditioning, not by over-applying a styling gel, pomade, serum, oil, or etc.  Remember to always keep your expectations realistic when it comes to styling products and know that less is more.

Use a lemon hair treatment for removing buildup and adding shine

December 23, 2012 -- Urban Salon Finder

A lemon treatment can help remove product buildup from your hair and add a brilliant shine.  To make, combine the juice from 1 large lemon with about 1 tablespoonful of conditioner.  To use, first rinse your hair thoroughly with water.  Second, wash your scalp (preferably with conditioner).  Third, pour the lemon treatment over your head and distribute throughout your hair.  Fourth, rinse your scalp and hair thoroughly with water and then condition and style as usual.  A lemon treatment is a healthy and natural way to moisturize, cleanse, and clarify and can be used whenever your hair looks dry and dull.
