While at Fashion Week it reminds me of how overWORKED a models hair can get running from show to show. Backstage there is always tons of product, heated styling tools and elaborate hair designs. A model's hair can quickly get damaged. After the shows, many at home long to recreate these styles that cause stress on the healthiest head of hair.
I wanted to share some tips on how to protect your hair but still get to enjoy being a 'Hair Fashionista'!
1- Keep it DIRTY. Even if you are going from style to style, try not to wash your hair every day. Many of the more elaborate styles and updo's fair much better with dirty hair. When your hair is clean it tends to be too wispy to create the drama of a runway style.
2- SAY "NO" to Rubber Bands! Always steer clear of plain rubber bands- even in a pinch. They will pull and break your hair causing extra damage with every use. Always carry fabric protected elastic bands with you as an option if you are provided ones Backstage that will damage your hair.
3- YES to EXTENSIONS! If you like elaborate hair styles play with and use extensions to create DRAMA.
By using this technique you are sharing the damage with 'hair' you can purchase again when it gets overworked.
4- PROTECT your hair with a MASK! Apply a hair mask to revitalize hair in between styles. This will re-nourish your hair with the right nutrients. You can try PrX REPARATIVES mask by Frederic Fekkai- The Remedy to Restore Beautiful Hair.
5- Give it a break! Every now and then, just do nothing. No hair spray, no updo's, no hair dryers. Just nothing... A few days of this and your hair can some back to Life!
