Are You a ‘Mane Addict’?

Human’s age-old obsession with beauty has seen the invention and refinement of make-up through to fashion. Why should hair be any different?  Are you a ‘Mane Addict’?

Once again, we’ve asked a local expert to tell us what’s new and exciting in the world of hair, this time to discuss re-creating that ‘fresh from the salon look’ at home.

This time around we discussed a few how to questions that our local experts at Chatters Hair Salon tell us are asked all the time.

Question 1

Are You a ‘Mane Addict’?

How do I use my flat iron to curl my hair?

It’s best to choose a one inch iron with a beveled edge to create the curl. If you are looking for a new one, Chatters has a large supply of options in every price range. However, the stylists in the know also strongly suggest using a heat protecting spray that also has some hold. They’ve suggested Redken Iron Shape spray along with your flat iron for the best experience. The Redken Iron Shape spray is lightweight with medium control.  This great spray protects and repairs, locks in heat styles and won’t leave hair feeling stiff or sticky.

The trick is to run the flat iron over the section ready to curl, twisting hair around the barrel as you go.  To do this, turn the barrel of the flat iron with your wrist as you pull down.  It may take a few tries to get used to the motion, but the classic curls you’re left with say it all.

Question 2

Are You a ‘Mane Addict’?

I’m a brunette and hate seeing red in my hair. How do I get rid of it?

The pros tell us that the best way to tone down that red is to use a shampoo with a blue or green base to eliminate the red.  Two of the best available, in their opinion, is Redken Brown Lights for Red or Joico Blue Shampoo for Orange. The Redken shampoo gently cleanses your hair without stripping colour and helps prolong your cool brunette colour, while the true-blue formula of the Joico Blue shampoo instantly banishes overly warm, orange tones that tend to turn up in dark hair that’s been chemically lightened.

Question 3

What is going to keep my hair from going frizzy when I blow dry?

This age old question is finally answered.  Our experts tell us that using Redken Rebel Tame gives you multi benefits.  Featuring Babassu Oil, this smoothing cream provides frizz control while hydrating, detangling and protecting your hair from heat styling.  Following that with AG HAIR Frizzproof, a spray that creates an invisible, weightless shield over your hair, will leave your hair feeling shiny, soft and smooth.
