Wow, it’s been a busy summer for us… same for you? Now that summer is nearing the end, we wanted to take a few minutes and show you what we’ve been up to. Please enjoy this video as we go off for a weekend picnic on the grounds of Pasado’s Safe Haven to spend time with our Ole and Jacques, our newly adopted Donkeys. We will post more photos and videos after our visit so you will get to see our precious moments with the animals! Be sure to follow us on Facebook to see those updates.
I’m usually a positive person, but this gets to me so I thought I’d vent to you.
I want to share a little secret with you about my head shape.
I really hate my flat crown.
I also don’t like how straight my hair is.
Sometimes I feel like my face looks looks like a round moon and not attractive at all.
Five years ago, I did a lot of thinking about how I could create fullness to the top of my head to make my face look more elongated. I wanted to create a permanent lift in the root of my hair but not to end up with a permed look. The solution I came up with is a perming system I named, “Weave Perm”.
The is not like a regular perm because the hair is wrapped in large rods and random pieces are woven out.
In other words, 100% of your hair is not wrapped in perm rods. Leaving some hair out helps to keep your hair from looking curly. I get weave perms 2 or 3x per year and it’s the perfect solution for me.
You will have to learn how to style the hair using a large brush but it’s the perfect solution for retaining your style throughout the day… especially in the damp winter weather.
Weave perming is not for everyone so please come in for a consultation and we will be happy to analyze your hair and head shape to determine if you’d benefit from this perming system.
Sunshine and the thinning ozone layer is extremely harsh on your hair. Even when the weather is cloudy, your hair can be a victim of Ultraviolet damage. It’s hard to believe, but just walking one block outside can fade your color and damage your hair’s ends! What to do about it?
Here are 5 tips to treat your hair with love and kindness to cultivate healthy and shiny hair again:
When shampooing your hair, do not use hot water. Instead, use tepid to warm water that is comfortable to the touch. Make sure to massage your scalp to stimulate circulation.
After showering, don’t scrub or pull your hair with a towel. To get extra moisture out, gently press the towel on your wet hair and hold patiently.
Do not cause undue stress to your hair by raking through your wet hair with a fine-toothed comb. A wide, flat surfaced brush is best for smoothing out tangled hair layer at a time. We recommend the Flat Bristle brush by Aveda.
Applying high heat to wet hair can cause the moisture in your hair to reach a boiling point. Can you imagine? It’s the same as putting your hair in boing water! Keep your blow dryer at a distance and on low heat then gently circulate the hair until most of the moisture has evaporated.
Use heated tools such as flat irons or hot curling irons in moderation. Direct heat applied right onto the hair causes damage to the outermost cuticle layer (the one that keeps your hair from splitting). Instead, try velcro brush rollers to add volume to your hair. These rollers are not heated and will keep your hair in much better condition.
