Once I've done there hair all up nicely, clients often ask me, "Now Maryam, how am I supposed to keep this up?" Most women wish they could just sleep standing up:)) But only in a perfect world, right. As a woman, I can totally relate to every clients individual circumstance. Although I can't house myself in every client's bathroom to keep every single hair in place (wouldn't it be great if I could:)); there are a few tips that I can share that may prolong the duration of your fabulous mane in between salon visits.
1st step. Client must NOT take super hot showers or baths, steam will make the style drop sooner than later.
2nd step. When getting ready for bed/shower I find that wrap strips help to contract and diffuse (keep edges and nape in place) during bed time. Lightly tie 1 or 2 of them right around the tapered areas of the head and rest assure this will help keep your mane tamed.
3rd step. No matter what you may have heard about holding on to a style, it's just a myth. Harder hair is NOT better hair!!!!
4th step. If you have a great cut, your hair will behave as such! I recommend you to use a light moisturizer. Rub a small amount on your fingertips, then lightly run them thru your spiked out strands. Shake them up even for a more fun look. Apply a small amount on your tapered area and Walaah! you've just extended your hair styles life.
1st step. Before bed your should have a light moisturizer recommended by your stylist. Something that is not designed to weigh your hair down but maintain shine and keep your strands from drying out.
2nd step. Applying a small amount of moisturizer or serum to the ends of your hair will in fact help keep your ends sealed and your style polished.
3rd step. Once moisturized, wrap your hair in a circular motion. Tie it up with a satin or silk scarf is an oldie but goodie for keeping your hair smooth and protecting it while you sleep. I suggest this for the client who's hair is not cut in layers and is just looking for a smooth worry free finish. This client will be able to just comb her hair down in the morning and go, very low maintenance with no additional flat ironing or curling required. (avoiding excessive heat between salon visits is a definite way to keep your strands healthy).
