Follow along to learn about 6 habits to leave in 2023…

Coming to appointments with dirty hair:

Coming to your hair appointment with dirty hair might seem unimportant, but it can significantly impact the results of your salon experience. Clean hair provides a fresh canvas for stylists to work their magic, allowing products to be applied more effectively and ensuring that styles last longer. Dirty hair contains oils and product buildup that can hinder the hairstylist's ability to assess your hair's natural texture and condition accurately. Moreover, the presence of dirt and oils can affect the outcome of color treatments, making it challenging for colors to adhere evenly. By breaking the habit of showing up with unwashed hair, clients open the door to a more successful and satisfying salon visit, ultimately maximizing the benefits of your professional’s skills. It's a simple yet crucial step toward achieving the best possible results and maintaining the health and vibrancy of your hair.

Missing your hair extension move-up appointments:

Neglecting your hair extension move-up appointment is a habit that can have detrimental effects on both the longevity of your extensions and the health of your natural hair. These appointments are scheduled strategically to reposition and maintain the extensions, ensuring they seamlessly blend with your own hair and preventing any discomfort or strain on your scalp. Skipping these crucial appointments can lead to issues such as tangling, matting, and uneven distribution of the extensions, which in return may compromise the overall look and feel. Additionally, as your natural hair grows, the extensions may start to pull, causing unnecessary stress on your strands and potentially damaging them. By making a habit of attending your scheduled move-up appointments, you not only preserve the integrity of your extensions, but also promote the health and longevity of your natural hair, resulting in a stunning and well-maintained hairstyle.

Coming to appointments sick and risking your stylist’s health:

Showing up to your hair appointments while sick is not only a bad habit but also lacks the consideration for the well-being of both yourself, other guests and your stylist. Salons are shared spaces, and the close proximity during a styling session can easily lead to the transmission of germs. By attending your appointment while unwell, you risk exposing your stylist to potential illness, jeopardizing their health and the health of others in the salon. Moreover, being sick can affect the quality of your experience as a client, as fatigue or discomfort may hinder your ability to fully enjoy and appreciate the service. It's essential to prioritize the health and safety of everyone involved by rescheduling your appointment if you're feeling under the weather. This simple act of consideration not only fosters a healthier salon environment but also ensures a more enjoyable and effective styling experience for both you and your stylist.

Not following your stylist’s aftercare guidelines:

Neglecting your stylist's hair aftercare guidelines is a habit that can ruin the longevity and health of your hairstyle. Stylists provide these guidelines to optimize the results of your service, whether it's a color, cut, hair extensions, etc. Ignoring these recommendations, such as using improper products or neglecting specific care instructions, can lead to faded color, diminished shine, and compromised hair health. Your stylist tailors these guidelines to your unique hair type and the specific service you received, aiming to maintain the integrity of your style. By following their advice, you not only extend the life of your hairstyle but also ensure that your hair remains vibrant and healthy between salon visits. Breaking this habit is essential for preserving the desired look and maximizing the benefits of your service.

Not using professional grade products:

Choosing to use non-professional grade hair products is a habit that can cause harm to the overall health and appearance of your hair. Professional-grade products are specifically formulated with high-quality ingredients to address various hair concerns effectively. These products not only provide better results but are often tailored to specific hair types and conditions. Additionally, using non-professional products can contain harsh chemicals or inadequate formulations, leading to potential damage, muted results, and even color fading. Investing in professional-grade hair products may seem like a higher upfront cost, but the long-term benefits in terms of improved hair health, vibrant color retention, and overall styling performance makes it a wise choice. Breaking the habit of choosing non-professional products is a key step towards ensuring the optimal care and longevity of your hair.

Using YouTube to learn services regulated for certified professionals:

As a client, it's essential to be aware of the major damages of using YouTube tutorials to learn and perform hair services regulated for certified professionals. Professional hairstylists are knowledgeable in intricate techniques, safety measures, and a deep understanding of various factors that YouTube videos do not cover comprehensively. Certified professionals undergo extensive training to ensure the highest standards of service and safety for clients. Attempting services without proper certification can lead to mistakes, damage to your hair, and safety hazards. To ensure a positive and safe experience, it's recommended to seek the expertise of certified professionals who have the knowledge and skills to provide quality hairstyling services while prioritizing your well-being.

Final Thoughts…
Incorporating positive hair care habits is crucial for achieving and maintaining healthy, vibrant hair. Breaking free from habits, such as arriving with dirty hair or neglecting aftercare guidelines, paves the way for a more satisfying salon experience and long-lasting results. Additionally, recognizing the importance of professional-grade products and avoiding the use of YouTube tutorials that doesn’t value experts in the field. Embracing these positive habits, clients can enhance the overall health and beauty of their hair, ensuring a confident and long lasting style throughout the year. It's time to say goodbye to habits that hinder progress and welcome a new era of informed and mindful hair care practices.
