5 Secrets Your Hair Stylist Won’t Tell You

A good hairstyle can significantly improve a woman’s self-esteem and do it all day. However, a consultation with a hairdresser does not always guarantee a good result. Mainly because each stylist has their own secrets and they don’t always aim to make your hair beautiful and healthy.

We collected 5 secrets that hairdressers keep to themselves that you should know before transforming your look.

5. Show Your Hairstylist Not Only Examples of Hairdos That You Like but Also the Ones That You Don’t Like.

Before your next salon appointment, find and capture a picture of various hair styles that you like and some absolutely unacceptable variants. It would be great if you could show them exactly what you want as the end result.

It’s hard to implement something that looks “exactly like this, but a little shorter” (because everyone has their own understanding of “shorter”). This will help your hairdresser understand exactly what you want to see on your head.

4. Find Out What Percentage of Hydrogen Peroxide (Oxidant) a Hairstylist Uses

If you decide to change your hair color and make it lighter, ask your stylist what percentage of oxidant they will use. If it is 9% or more, there is a considerable risk that the protein in your hair will become pigmented, which will leave your hair yellow, unable to lighten.

2. A Perm Is Only Good for Healthy Hair

Many women with silky smooth hair have thought about getting a perm at least once in their lives. However, it is not recommended for certain hair types.

Fine, weak, or discolored hair can be damaged by the content of the product used for the perm. Also, it may not even work for certain hair types.

1. Keratin Hair Straightening Doesn’t Repair Hair

Keratin is a protein that human hair is made of. During keratin straightening, hairdressers apply the product to the hair and fill in the cracks and holes. Most hair straightening products contain artificial keratin. It does not repair or treat damaged hair, but instead creates a beautiful “coverage” over it.

When the effect of such a procedure wears off, your hair becomes brittle and rough. Natural keratin-based products contain formaldehyde which has a harmful effect on the lungs and respiratory tract.
