Choosing a style that works for you
We always admire the styles that celebrities have on but before you decide to get it done on your hair, consider the cost of maintaining it and whether it is practical for your lifestyle. Celebrities have a whole glam team that is fully dedicated to make them look good but many of us don't. It's wise to think twice before changing your hairstyle and getting a cut that's quite hard to maintain.
Deep conditioning at home
You are not doing your hair any justice if you don't condition it regularly at home. Choose a good moisturizing conditioner that you can use regularly to keep your ends strong and avoid damage. The less work you will need to get done at the salon, the less you pay. You may even make yourself a homemade hair treatment or conditioner by mixing avocado and olive oil to create a paste.
Do not overuse the heated styling tools
Most hair stylists will advise you to avoid using heated styling tools on a regular basis. The reason is that they end up damaging your hair and you'll find yourself making more trips to the salon in order to have it properly treated. Use of flat irons and blow dryers should be minimal if you want to keep your hair strong and healthy.
Communicate with your stylist
Having a chat with the person who is doing your hair or nails will allow them to determine what you need and how much time you want it to stay. If you've been using Kona hair color at home and you now want to visit the stylist, it's important to explain all the chemicals your hair is used to and the lifestyle choices that could affect the choice of styles. For instance, if you are a swimmer then the hair stylist needs to know this so that they can recommend the best brand of hair color for you.
Choose a style that's somewhat natural
It's fine to try out a completely different look but be prepared to spend time and money maintaining it. For instance, if you change your hair color from brown to blond, your roots will need to be touched up at least 3 weeks after. However, if you stick to your natural shade you will only need redoing after 12 weeks or more. You are better off choosing a style that you can easily manage and afford so that you look stunning always.
Most importantly, you will need to have your hair professionally done by a stylist as often as you can. While many people choose to have manicures, haircuts and coloring done at home, you may cause a lot of damage to yourself because you don't have the knowledge of how and what salon products to use. Choose a good salon and a hairstyle you can maintain at home so you won't have to worry about visiting the Big Island hair salon every other day.
