I'm sure at some point in every person's hair history someone has given out bad hair advice or has heard a myth or two pertaining to your lovely locks. For example, how the more often you get haircuts, the faster your hair will grow. One of my personal favorites is when people use the term "my hair feels dead". If your hair feels dead, that's because it is. Another big one is how keratin is harmful to the client receiving the service, when in fact it's the stylist performing the treatment who should be wearing a mask. The list could go on and on. However, the biggest myth of them is is that "beauty school is easy". Trust me, anyone who has been to or graduated from Cosmetology school will sincerely beg to differ.
If there is one thing I've learned since I began Cosmo school four months ago it's that school is far from easy. When you attend school you're not only learning about hair cutting and color, but you're also studying nails, skin care, make-up, scalp treatments, business, anatomy, biology, chemistry, electricity and that's just to name a few! The truth is, licensed beauticians are more or less like hair doctors. We are trained to the tee to be able to assess a client's hair, have them express their concerns, and find a solution to accommodate their wants and needs while keeping their hair and scalp as healthy as possible. It's our job and responsibility to provide you with the best knowledge in hair care.....not your neighbors. I mean you wouldn't see a podiatrist for a toothache.
Having a hair check-up is pertinent in the health of your hair and scalp, so why would you want to skip a doctor's appointment? The point is everyone cares about their hair, so naturally you want the best for it. Count on the licensed professionals to point you in the right direction. See your stylist at least once every two weeks to discuss how your hair is changing and what you can to keep up with it as best you can.
Think of the salon as your emergency hair hotline and help us, help you, help your hair.
Always stay beautiful!
