Picture this: You wake up. You get out of bed. You look into the mirror. And then you see it. It sticks out like a sore thumb. Your once-perfect head of hair has lost its shine. How in the world could this have happened? For a lot of us, the above scenario is a reality and “picturing it” simply brings up a memory of the last time you looked at a reflection of yourself. The fact of the matter is that our hair is extremely important to us. The way we style and groom our hair says a lot about who we are. It's because of this that we want the hair on our heads to look as clean as possible. Shiny hair is healthy hair. So what causes hair to lose its shine? There's no one answer, but the good news is that there are some simple lifestyle changes that you can make that will allow you to regain that confidence and show off that beautiful head of hair to the world. Proper nutrition, controlling stress, getting enough of sleep, and cutting back on caffeine can all play an enormous role in keeping your hair healthy, or even reversing some of the damage already caused. One of the biggest contributors to our hair losing its shine is using the wrong products. As pointed out above, our hair is a direct reflection of who we are. Unfortunately, many styling and coloring products exist that advertise the look you're going for but come with some hidden problems. Chemicals such as ammonia, silicone, and even plastics are prevalent in many of these products. Fortunately, not all of them contain these ingredients, and choosing the right one will allow your hair to flourish. A product we highly recommend at The Studio hair salon is Aveda's new Full Spectrum Demi+ line. Whether you're seeking to enhance your natural hair color, cover grays, or even change the color completely, this product line has you covered with its 10 natural color options and 10 tones. It's easy to apply and lasts up to 40 washes. The best part: Instead of chemicals that can damage your hair and scalp, Full Spectrum Demi+ includes natural ingredients that have been carefully selected in order to keep your hair and scalp healthy while also allowing you to customize your hair color or even simply add some shine. If you feel that your hair lacks the shine it once had, worry not. With a fantastic product and maybe even some lifestyle changes, you can get that shiny hair back. Your hair is an important symbol of who you are. Keep it looking healthy. Stop by The Studio and one of our friendly hair stylists will help you decide which product is perfect for you.
