If you find a baseball cap or hat of any kind has suddenly become your trademark, it's time to get to a salon. The single best thing you can do to immediately improve the look and condition of your hair is a great precision hair cut.
Just moved to a new location or city or maybe just looking for a new stylist? The very best way to find a skilled new stylist is this. Stop people whose hair you admire (great cut and superb condition and even better if their hair has a similar natural texture as your own), and ask them where they get their hair done. Time and time again we have new clients that say they had to come and check us out because the last 5 people they stopped, whose hair they admired, all said they come to Jazma. I have always found without exception, that people are happy to refer you to their salon and stylist, if asked. Unless we know a stylist personally and their work, this is the only way we recommend to our clients to find a new salon and stylist when their job or other reasons force them to have to relocate to another city or country.
You don't have to be an expert to know when something looks good and was done by a skilled craftsman in any trade. Be it great hair cuts and styles or anything else that takes experience and skill in to produce a fine result.
Split ends cannot be repaired by treatments or conditioners, period. Just as when you tear a fingernail, it has to be trimmed before the tear continues to worsen, you cannot repair it. The same goes for your hair. If you have split ends you must trim them before they continue down the hair shaft making your hair in a much worse state.
Always style your hair using a wide toothed comb. The teeth should be rounded on the ends to avoid scratching the scalp and without any seams from manufacturing which can snag on your hair and tear it .
When using a curling iron always use one that has a temperature control, that way it cannot become too hot and burn your hair. We recommend always using a thermal styling spray before curling for added protection against the heat. And never use a curling iron on dirty hair.
When you blow-dry your hair before curling, blow dry it to a point where there is still a slight bit of moisture left in your hair. By not blow-drying your hair completely dry before curling and styling, this will allow you to use less heat for less time in order to curl your hair. It's kind of like when you iron cloths, if they are very slightly damp before ironing, or if completely dry if you spray them a little with a water bottle just before ironing. They will take an iron quicker and hold the press longer than when you iron an item that is completely dry. If your hair is dry, just give it a very light misting with a water spray bottle to bring up its moisture level before curling.
Be careful when brushing Black hair that is relaxed, colour treated or permed because of its weaker condition from doing these chemical processes to it. When your hair is growing out, it is weakest where the already processed hair meets the new growth, and improper brushing may snap the strands at this point.
Liquid hair styling tools such as mousse, hair sprays or gels when used at the base of your hair near the scalp add lift and volume to your hair. When they are used at the ends they add weight.
Since most people do toss and turn while they sleep you should never go to bed with your hair in rollers or pony tails. This tossing and turning during sleep with rollers or pony tails, may cause the hair to pull and break.
Really try to refrain from putting your hair into ponytails. We find they tend to put too much stress on the hair, and the bands ( elastics are the very worse) cause breakage when putting them in and taking them out.
If you find your hair tends to tangle or mat at night when you sleep, try using a satin pillow case to sleep on.
If you want a longer hold for your style when using a curling iron, try spraying the hair before you iron with a thermal styling spray.
When you get over 35 years of age your face will be affected by gravity and the natural aging process. It's a gradual thing, but after a certain age longer styles will start to make you appear older rather than youthful. As you gracefully age, we recommend that you try keeping your hair in shorter styles, which generally speaking are more attractive on mature women.
To increase the texture on thick or wavy hair, long layers will boost up the wave and curl.
Always communicate clearly with your stylist, letting them know your exact wishes and the goals you wish to achieve for your hair. This way you will not end up with a cut or chemical service that you’re unhappy with. Ensuring a flow of constant clear communication will in turn allow your stylist to please you, and not disappoint you, and maybe loosing you as their client.
If you do end up with a cut or chemical service you are dissatisfied with, call the salon and let them know. True professionals will always welcome feedback from their clients of both a positive and negative nature. A reputable salon will do all it can within reason to satisfy an unhappy client. But please call right away to allow them to see the problem when it is still fresh.
