Your hair feels dry and rough to the touch. Maybe frizz and flyaways are plaguing your daily style. So, what’s the right type of hair treatment to reinvigorate your dry, damaged hair after a chemical process? And, is it the same treatment that can revive frayed and splitting ends?
Most of us are guilty of thinking that all hair treatments are one in the same. That’s understandable, since each of the three types of treatments—protein, keratin, and moisturizers—can repair damaged hair.
But our top stylists confirm a little-known tip for those considering hair fixes: The type of damage determines the treatment.
Hoshall’s Salon offers three different hair treatments that are designed to bring your hair back to a state of easy styling, full of healthy bounce and shine. Here’s a basic breakdown of which is which:
Is Your Hair Breaking? Try Hoshall’s Protein Treatment ($15)
Our protein hair treatment is designed specifically to help over-processed hair that shows signs of breakage. The formula is similar to a deep conditioner, since it strengthens your hair without changing the color or texture, but is much stronger. Talk to your Hoshall’s stylist about a protein treatment if:
● Your hair feels weak and brittle.
● You’ve noticed an increase in breakage and shedding.
● You regularly chemically process your hair.
The protein treatment process is applied while you’re still at the shampoo bowl, often immediately after hair has been colored.
But, this is one step that’s best left to a professional stylist. That’s because, to be effective, a protein treatment is much stronger than at-home products and leaving it on for more than a few minutes can result in more damage than you started with.
Does Your Hair Look Dull and Lifeless? Ask About Our Indulge Mask ($25)
Every heated pass of a blow dryer or hot iron zaps moisture from your hair. Excessive brushing, a winter’s length of extra-hot showers, and tightly twisting your hair into submission can also rough up your cuticle, making it harder for hair to hold onto moisture and prone to dryness.
Not only will dryness decrease your hair’s natural shine and luster, a lack of moisture makes strands more prone to breakage.
Regular conditioning at home helps keep your hair supple. But, over time continued use of styling products can create a build-up that’s difficult for your daily conditioner to penetrate.
That’s where deep conditioning hair treatments can make a big difference. Packed full of emollient moisturizers designed to make hair softer and more pliable, deep conditioning treatments not only rejuvenate your hair’s shine, but make it easier to manipulate and shape during daily styling.
Notice Your Ends Fraying? Try Hoshall’s Split End Repair ($40)
It’s important to know upfront that there’s no way to completely heal frayed and split ends. However, if you’re set on transitioning to another style that requires just a few more months of growth, or simply can’t bear to cut off those ends right before a season packed with social events, our Split End Repair is just the ticket to extending the life of your current length.
Hoshall’s Split End Repair uses keratin to reinforce your ends with a little “something extra.”
This treatment is like a mini version of keratin-based Brazilian blowouts, except that it’s just applied to ends. The heat-activated formula works instantly to mend split ends by binding broken hair fibers together.
After treatment, your ends are bonded with a semi-permanent seal that remains flexible for months, meaning that you can once again easily style without fighting frizzy ends—or sacrificing length.
Ready to rejuvenate your hair with a Hoshall’s treatment? Remember, knowing which service is best your hair needs is a huge deal, since applying the wrong type can result in extra brittleness or damage.
When in doubt, just ask! Hoshall’s stylists have completed years of training that help us to determine which treatment is appropriate for the condition of your hair. Call to schedule an appointment for one of our treatments, and we’ll customize a solution that gives you fresh out of the salon hair every day.
