HOW TO MAINTAIN A BLOW DRY

 

Our salon stylists are always asked ‘how to maintain a blow dry’ after they leave our salon.  We decided to put together a few tips on this and a few secrets to help maintain that look.

First, there are few things you will need to have to hand:

1 invisi bobble

1 satin pillowcase

a few grips

1 plastic shower cap

1 cotton bandanna or scarf

Redken Pillow proof Dry Shampoo

2″ barrel curling iron or GHD iron

2 1/2″ self holding curlers (Rekden sleep in rollers – ask at reception)

 

THE FIRST NIGHT

On the first night of your professional blow dry you want to let your hair settle a little bit so be a little careful and before you go to bed, make sure the satin pillowcase is on the pillow you lay on.  Next, pull the back of your hair int e cap off and shake your hair out.

 

THE SECOND NIGHT

Repeat the original ponytail routine from last night.

 

THE NEXT MORNING

This morning you will find your blow dry is not looking as good as it was so to spruce it up follow these tips:

Start with 2 inch sections and lightly spray the dry shampoo at the roots.  Then take big sections and wrap around the curlers following the same directions as the original blow-dry.  Once all your hair is up, put the bandanna around your hairline – this is to protect it against a leaky shower cap.  Once out of the shower shake your hair and let it resettle.  Use a little hair spray for additional hold.  Your stylist will recommend the right spray for  you.

 

THE THIRD NIGHT

Pull all your hair into a really high ponytail with your invisi bobble and then twist it into a loose bun on the very top of your head.  Secure with grips.

This routine will maintain your blow dry for a few days.  If you have any questions or it’s just not working for you, ask your stylist next time you are in the salon.

HAIR FACTS

1. Hair is made up mostly of keratin, the same protein animals’ horns, hooves, claws, feathers, and beaks are made of.

2. When wet, a healthy strand of hair can stretch an additional 30% of its original length.

 

3. Hair grows slightly faster in warm weather, because heat stimulates circulation and encourages hair growth.

4. All hair is dead, with the exception of the hair that’s still inside the epidermis of your scalp.

 

5. Hair contains information about everything that has ever been in your bloodstream, including drugs, and is one of the most commonly used types of forensic evidence.

 

6. The only thing about you that can’t be identified by your hair is your gender—men’s hair and women’s hair are identical in structure.

 

7. Black is the most common hair color. Red is the rarest and only exists in about 1 percent of the world’s population, with blonde hair found in 2 percent.

 

8. As soon as a hair is plucked from its follicle, a new one begins to grow.

 

9. Hair is 50 percent carbon, 21 percent oxygen, 17 percent nitrogen, 6 percent hydrogen, and 5 percent sulphur.

 

10. Hair can grow anywhere on the human body with the exception of the palms of hands, soles of feet, eyelids, lips, and mucous membranes.

 

11. Goosebumps from cold or fear are the result of hair follicles contracting, causing the hair and surrounding skin to bunch up.

 

12. The average number of hair strands varies by natural color, with blondes having the most and redheads having the fewest.

 

13. The scientific term for split ends is “trichoptilosis.”

 

14. Aside from bone marrow, hair is the fastest growing tissue in the body.

 

15. Balding only begins to become visible once you’ve lost over 50 percent of the hairs from your scalp.

16. At any given time, 90 percent of the hairs in your scalp are growing, while the other 10 percent are resting.

 

17. A single hair has a lifespan of about five years.

 

18. Hair acts as a layer of thermally insulating protection for our heads, which lack the insulation that fat provides for the rest of our bodies.

19. Each strand of hair can support up to 100 grams in weight. Multiply that by the average 100,000 to 150,000 strands on each head, and your entire head of hair could support the weight equivalent to two elephants.
