Give me a head with hair... Long Beautiful Hair

Growing your hair to a long beautiful length and still keeping the integrity can be a problem. There are two C's involved in the process: Cutting and Conditioning. Most people think if they are going to grow out their hair they shouldn't get it shaped in anyway, until it gets to the length they wanted to achieve. You can do that, but the results would be disastrous. Imagine if you will, a long piece of dried straw and that would be your total accomplishment. For the reward of beautiful long hair, you must have your hair trimmed and I do mean trimmed on a regular bases, usually every six to eight weeks. No length should be removed only trimming off the split ends, which will be minimal should you be on this regular schedule. Brush your scalp and hair on a daily bases. By doing this you are stimulating the scalp and bringing the oils onto the hair shaft. This will cause the blood to nourish your scalp and stimulate hair growth. Wash your hair with products that will nourish and condition your hair and scalp. We suggest Joico or Aquage Products. Some product appear to have vitamins and other good ingredients in them only to have waxes and such included. The waxes in those products, however, will prohibit the vitamins and other good ingredients from penetrating and giving any benefits, by sealing the hair folicals. If for whatever reason you have to go eight weeks before you get a haircut instead of the preferred six weeks, then use Split End Mender from Joico to keep those ends looking better until they can be trimmed. Split ends left untrimmed and uncared for will begin to split up the hair shaft, leaving that straw look and your hair will seem to take forever to grow out, because it is indeed breaking off. When you finally do go in to have your hair trimmed, they will have to take off a lot of length just to have it look healthy again. Do it right the first time! Enjoy the fruit of your labor.

Life Is Too Short

Clients, especially the ones of you with long hair, you may always be asking for something new and different but never wanting to commit to anything other than same old, same old. The one exception with some of you is bangs. As the holidays approach, you may be willing to give that a shot. Keira Knightley updated her swept bangs recently with a bolder fringe statement that recaptures her youth and brings out her eyes. Bangs grow out, so there’s not much risk. Versatility is another advantage of this cut. You can curl or wave it the way Keira wears her hair or you can blow it out straight. Solid bangs also give you lots of options with color for those who throw caution to the wind and agree to let their stylist foil the fringe.

Life is Short – It is Hair – It Grows Out - Have Fun With It

Time is passing so fast, we have to plan for the future and learn from the past, but we must enjoy our NOW! Our PRESENT moment. I read a story from a book called “Ragamuffin Gospel”, great book, by the way. The story goes something like this…
There was a monk being chased by a tiger. The monk ran to the edge of a cliff, looked back, and saw the tiger about to jump on him. The monk saw a rope hanging over the edge of the cliff. He grabbed it and began to sliding down the side of the cliff. Whew! Narrow escape. The monk then looked down and saw a quarry of jagged rocks five hundred feet below. He looked up and saw the tiger at the top of the cliff. Just then, two mice began to nibble at the rope. What to do? The monk saw a strawberry within arm’s reach, growing out of the face of the cliff. He picked it, ate it, and said, “Yum! That’s the best strawberry I’ve ever tasted in my entire life” If he had been preoccupied with the rock below (the future) or the tiger above (the past), he would have missed the strawberry God was giving him in the present moment.”
