hairstyling for dummies

davines haircare products

You know those girls that always have perfectly styled hair? Always wonder how they do it? We want to let you in on a little secret…it’s all about the product you are putting in your hair.

We are constantly hearing people say…I have the worst hair. You don’t. You’re just using the wrong products. For instance, if you had trouble with your skin, chances are you’d invest in the right products, right? Your hair is no different.

not all products are made equal

In fact, a lot of products you purchase at the drug store are typically watered down, which aren’t doing your hair any favors. When you use a professional hair product you are getting more bang for your buck and treating your hair with the love it deserves.

ph hair levels

Quick science lesson…this is important: pH levels. (Remember pH from high school?! Potential Hydrogen!) pH levels range from 0 to 14. Numbers on the lower side are more acidic and higher numbers are more alkaline, the amount of hydrogen in something determines the pH level.

Ok Kristen, what does pH have to do with my hair? Glad you asked. Your hair is made up of tiny shafts made of scales called cuticles. Alkaline based products when you mix them with water cause your cuticle to open, exposing the inside of your hair shafts….you want to keep them closed. To keep your shaft closed and moisture sealed in your cuticle you want to be using products with a more acidic pH level.

I’m starting to feel like Bill Nye over here. So the moral of this story is that there is a lot to know behind the products you’re putting in your hair! Which is why we are launching “hairstyling for dummies”.
