Finding the Perfect Hair Product
There are many factors involved in deciding which products are best for you. These factors are based on things such as; the courseness/fineness of your hair, if your hair is colored or not, how much time you spend in the elements, the amount of heat styling that you practice, and if your scalp is overly dry or oily, along with others. All of these things play a part in how much moisture and nutrients are taken from your hair, and therefore, how much you need to put back, while making sure you do not damage it further.
There is no such thing as an all-purpose product since everyone's hair is completely different. For example, if you color your hair, spend a lot of time in the sun, and use blowdryers and straightening irons regularly, you would not use a clarifying or cleansing shampoo, since it is too harsh for that hair type and it will just strip it more. You would use a moisturizing or hydrating shampoo and conditioner, and specifically a color-saving product to preserve and lock in the color.
The only sure way to determine which product is best for you is to have a professional tell you, or prescribe, if you will, exactly what you need to get it back to where it should be to maintain it's shine, elasticity and smoothness. It is absolutely possible no matter the hair type. 97 Main Salon has chosen Onesta & Moroccan Oil products due to the variety of products for every hair type and for the simple fact their products do what they say!
Drugstore vs. Salon Products
Ever wondered about drugstore shampoos versus salon products? Is it really worth it to spend so much more for salon products?
Yes! It all comes down to the pH. The natural pH level of the oil in the hair and skin is 4.5 to 5.5. It's acidic. In order for drugstore shampoos to be cost effective, they are more alkali. They clean the hair very well, but they strip the natural oils. Ends will be dry and the scalp will be oily because when the product strips the natural pH oils, the body actually increases production. I see it alot: ends are really dry and scalp hair is really oily. Most salon products are in an acidic pH range. That also protects against color fading, by slowing down dye escaping from the hair.
It's also worth spending the money not just for the pH but for the water content. Salon shampoos tend to be more concentrated, so you don't need to use that much. A 10 ounce bottle should last at least a month. Ohh and BEWARE of the salon brands at your local drug store. They are there illegally and most likely 3 years old (hair products have a shelf life of about 1 year)
So be sure to consult a professional when deciding on which hair products to use. It does make a HUGE difference.
