Beautiful hair is the most obvious sign of health and vitality on a man or woman. It is easy for hair to become damaged from air pollution, a nutrient-poor diet, and environmental toxins, so it is important to visit a hair salon regularly in order to maintain vibrant, radiant hair.

There are a variety of health problems that can arise from neglect for one's hair. An overly dry scalp can lead to itching and dandruff. Without regular haircuts, the end of the hairs will split and form weak, out of control strands. Hair can also become brittle and break easily as a result of a poor diet, excessive use of heat when styling, and excessive color treatments. The use of too many styling products leads to product build-up in the hair, leaving the head sticky, greasy, and unable to be cleansed with simple shampoo. If it goes undetected, gradual hair loss can escalate into permanent baldness. Lack of attention for hair can also cause one to overlook head lice and other infestations in the hair.

If a certain type of hair is not treated properly with the right styling products and procedures, environmental factors may wreak havoc on a person's hairstyle, and that is why it is important to develop healthy grooming practices. For example, those with oily hair should use an oil-free shampoo, and those with dry hair should use an intensive conditioner daily and avoid using heat when styling. Frizzy hair can be controlled with gel, while fine hair should be treated with a volumizing shampoo.

When you arrive at Attitudes Hair Salon, a hairdresser will first wash your hair with a salon-quality shampoo and conditioner. These products ensure that hair is clean and healthy before cutting and styling. Take advantage of this time to discuss with your hairdresser your particular questions and concerns regarding your current hairstyle. He or she will likely be able to suggest a washing and styling regimen to best maintain your hair type. While washing your hair, a hairdresser will often also provide a brief scalp massage, improving circulation and relieving stress and tension.

Before a hairdresser begins cutting your hair, be sure that you and the hairdresser are both clear on your requests and expectations. Going through a hairstyle magazine or bringing in a picture of your desired hairstyle can help with this process. Often, a hairdresser will suggest a particular hairstyle that may be flattering to your hair style or face shape. While it is good to consider these ideas, make sure that you feel comfortable with the style that you and your hairdresser agree on. As your hairdresser is cutting your hair, he or she should check in with you periodically to make sure that you are satifisfied with the cut.

After cutting your hair, a hairdresser will usually style it for you with the necessary products. During this time, make sure to gain as much knowledge as you can about keeping your hair strong and healthy. You should book your next appointment before leaving the salon for whatever date your hairdresser recommends. To maintain a hairstyle it is advisable return in 4 weeks. If you're growing your hair out, don't wait more than 8 weeks to trim off split ends and facilitate healthy hair growth.
