Dry Winter Skin? We've Got You Covered

Winter months mean cold, dry weather that can easily do a number on your hair and skin. We’ve all woken up with ashy legs and static hair and felt like we became dehydrated overnight. Besides leaving your heater on full-blast, other external factors including cold temperatures and low humidity tend to worsen dry skin during the winter season. These conditions strip the protective oils from your skin, allowing moisture to escape and your skin to become dehydrated. While dry skin by itself is not a big deal, it can also lead to itchiness, thick rough patches of skin, painful cracks in your skin, dermatitis, eczema, and at worst -- a bacterial infection.

Here are some products we recommend --

**It is important to note, that there is a huge difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin. Dry skin needs oil, dehydrated skin needs water. If you aren’t sure which condition you are suffering from, visit your local esthetician so he or she can determine the best course of action.

All You Ever Wanted to Know About Keratin (and More!)

11.jpg

As we begin to venture into the fall months, living in the Pacific NorthWest means the beginning of rainy season. For those of us with naturally curly, frizzy or unruly hair -- fall is one of our most dreaded seasons. For those looking for a more permanent solution to their seasonal hair woes, a keratin treatment is the way to go.  

A keratin treatment is a hair smoothing process that (simply put) fills in the porosity of your hair. Overly-porous hair often appears curly, frizzy and can cause breakage. Keratin is the protein that makes up your hair, so by applying keratin (and heat!) the treatment fills in the missing proteins and provides an overall smoothing effect.  

The process is intensive and usually takes about two hours depending on hair length and natural texture. Besides the long-lasting effects, the length of the service is largely what contributes to the high-ticket price of this treatment. However, the effects are well worth the price as they last about four months and most clients often become repeat customers who regularly schedule their keratin treatments.

Following a Keratin treatment, we recommend purchasing keratin-safe shampoo and conditioner to maintain the length and integrity of your keratin treatment. Shampoos and conditioners with sulfites and sodium chlorate can damage or shorten keratin treatment results. Shu Uemura Color Lustre and Kerastase Discipline are two shampoo and conditioner lines that can lengthen the life of your keratin treatment and maintain hair health. When properly cared for, the results are long lasting and even regular clients need only get a treatment three or four times a year.

Keep in mind there are a wide variety of keratin and keratin-like treatments and yet all are not created equal. It is important to ask questions when before receiving a keratin treatment as there are varieties with high formaldehyde concentrations and those with less harmful chemicals that focus on smoothing the cuticle rather than straightening. The more you know about the brand of keratin as well as the experience of the salon providing the treatment, the better the end results and most importantly... the happier the client.
