3 Ways to Keep Split Ends Away

What are 3 ways to keep split ends away?

What are split ends?

Split ends are damaged hair strands. This is caused by the hair drying out, being old and even using the wrong products. Split ends also know as trichoptilosis can travel up along the strand and hit the scalp completely destroying your hair. There are a few ways to prevent this like:

1. Regular trimmings

Regular trimmings at a salon will stop split ends from traveling up to you scalp and will eliminate the need for extra products to fix split ends. Getting a cut every 4-6 weeks can eliminate split ends.

2. Dry your Hair Gently

Drying your hair with an absorbent towel and dab the wet DO NOT vigorously dry your hair this will cause tangles in weird directions destroying your hair even faster than usual. This is because when your hair is wet it is fragile and can be damaged very easily.

3. Use a Wide Tooth Comb

When coming out of the shower use a wide tooth comb instead of a brush. This will decrease the likelihood of your hair getting stretched and broken when brushing. Using a comb will detangle it a lot safer and prevent stretching and breaking.

What is the Difference between Organic and Artificial?

organic hair care
The hair products used at Intuition Salon & Spa are all organic and healthy for you and the environment!

At all 3 of our locations we only use the best organic products for you!

Here are a few differences between all Organic products and Artificial products.

Organic Products Vs. Artificial Products

By choosing natural and organic products you can both help yourself and the environment. Salons using artificial products generate a lot of waste in the waterways and soils. This affects both plants and animals in the environment. Artificial products used on your scalp enter your bloodstream directly causing a lot of damage. Sometimes this can even cause hormone disruption and in some cases cancer. Come into our Clearwater, Largo, or St. Petersburg location to browse our all organic products and services.

Intuition Salon & Spa’s organic products are made from the purest ingredients. Any and all of our products you use will be easier on the skin and hair. This allows for a smaller chance of getting any skin irritations, allergies or anything else that might harm your skin.

For example, various preservatives and other artificial ingredients used in hair colors and cosmetics are linked to allergies, hormonal imbalance and tumor’s.

Here at Intuition Salon & Spa Clearwater,Intuition Salon & Spa St. Petersburg, and Intuition Salon & Spa Largo, we only use the best organic hair Products on the market keeping your health in mind 100% of the time.

5 Ways to Keep Your Hair Healthy!

What are 5 Ways I can keep my hair healthy?

1. Eat Protein

Including protein in your daily diet will allow your hair to grow back faster and healthier. Since your hair is made up of proteins eating eggs, chicken, fish, or even beans if your vegetarian.

2. Relax

Stress can and will cause your hair to fall out. So things like walking, running, riding a bike, and even sitting down and just watching a T.V. show. All of this can help destress and keep your hair from falling out.

3. Get Regular Haircuts

Getting regular trims gets rid of those nasty split ends that stop your air from growing. Just go to your local salon and get a haircut and this will help your hair grow long and healthy. The ideal time to get haircuts is a month to 6 weeks.

4. Be Nice to Your Noggin

This is a no brainer but its still a very important part of having nice hair. Don’t brush your hair more than you have to. Don’t use blow dryers and straighteners or very hot water all of this can destroy the proteins in your hair and cause your hair to take damage.

5. Use Organic Products as Much as Possible
