Hair care starts with a cut and can go all the way to a colour change. Elan Vitale offers that and everything in between! It doesn’t matter what you’re looking for — hydrating treatments for dry, porous hair, or a brand new, life changing colour because, girlfriend, that breakup was HARD — trust me, you and your hair are in good hands. And, it’s not just aesthetics that we’re pros at; it’s hair health, too! The beauty of your hair is so much more than length or colour (though those do play an important role, don’t get me wrong!). Beautiful hair starts with healthy hair. Some of us are born with it. Others of us have to fight tooth and nail to keep our precious locks shining, but whatever end of the spectrum you’re on, Elan Vitale has a health and beauty treatment for you. And we also want to give you some tips and tricks on how to keep your strands as glossy and strong as they should be. So, here they are; my top 5 Healthy Hair Care Secrets.
I know it sounds kind of weird, but what you eat affects everything about your body, including your hair! And I’m pretty sure you know what I’m going to say now. Eat your greens, people! For goodness sakes, can we all just eat like ONE salad?! When you’re healthy things, healthy things happen to your body (hair included!!!). Who knew?! Jk, we all knew, we just didn’t want to commit to that salad right now.
I know this is hard, but let’s put down those diet and alcoholic drinks for a hot second. Let’s give our buddy, water, a chance ok. He’s delish iced cold with a bit of lemon or lime! And he hydrates our terrific tresses to a T!
Make sure you come on into Elan Vitale’s stunning spa in Welland for a regular trim. Not only does it encourage healthy hair growth, it removes split and broken ends which make your hair look fuller and healthier. And that’s just after a simple thirty minute hair cut! Once a month, ladies! Repeat with me: Once A Month!
I don’t care what your shampoo bottle says it can do for you and your hair, I need to to put it down (Yes, you too! Set it down this instant) and back away slowly. We all love the sheen, shine, and scent of freshly washed hair. And, to be honest, we probably use dry shampoo WAY too many times before an actual wash. But you asked for healthy hair and I’m going to give it to you! Contrary to popular practise, your hair only needs to be washed 2-3 times a week at most. Your own scalp is your hair’s expert. It produces the oils and nutrients needed to keep your hair long and luscious, and the more you mess with nature, the more your hair will suffer. When you shampoo, you do get rid of gross impurities and dirt, but you also strip your hair of its natural resources for fighting grease and grim! Shampooing too much makes it impossible for your hair to regenerate essential ingredients. Slow down on the shampoo to speed up the healing!
Honestly, you guys, this one is a no brainer. You want a healthy body, you consult with a doctor and nutritionist. Same thing goes for you hair. You want healthy locks, you consult the pros at Elan Vitale. They can diagnose your hair issues, suggest what needs to be done to correct the problem, and totally lead you to the the hair treatment that’s right for you. Is Argan, coconut, or olive oil better for colour damaged hair? I have no clue, but you can bet your bottom dollar Elan Vitale does. Is it ok to bleach your pitched black hair in one go? I’m going to do with a solid no on that one but, once again, I’m not positive. You know who is? Elan Vitale!
This summer major heat wave has NOT been kind to our poor tresses, and that;s the truth. The other truth is that unless we’re legit pros, we really don’t know exactly how to make sure our hair is getting just what it needs to stay at its healthiest, most beautiful self. Give us a call today or come on in for a visit. We have air conditioning, I promise.
