Staying Positive in a Negative Time

My intent for this blog was to educate you on dandruff - give you tips and tell you about the product we sell in our facility to help with this common problem like how to keep your scalp healthy. Yes, dandruff is more common than you would think!! I completed all my research and had everything outlined. All I had to do was sit down and write the article. But my heart was led in a different direction.

Since the Coronavirus, also known as the COVID-19 pandemic, and the mandates put out by our governor and city officials, it is old news that we closed the doors to our salon and stopped performing services. We do realize it is for the betterment of our community and that we all need to do our part in slowing down the spread of this awful virus. It is hard being positive right now, but we are taking many positive action steps for you. Are you being positive at a negative time?

I know one thing: business and life are about challenges. We live in a world of polarities - ups and downs, the good and the bad, day and night, cold and warm. With that being said, at this point, we are faced with the challenge of providing the best career opportunity for our stylists and supplying our guests with products they need while we all practice “Social Distancing” to flatten the CURVE! 

Our main focus is on our stylists and guests. We have been working hard to create an online shopping cart where you can purchase the products you need and gift cards for special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries. Right now, we are offering products online through our Facebook page as well as discounts on eGift Cards you can purchase for yourself or someone else whether as a gift or even a “Thank You” for working during these trying times. HeadMasters is a Redken Certified salon and a state-of-the-art locally owned business. All of our stylists are given the resources and continuing education they need to help improve their skills and better their careers. This is the perfect time to contribute to your local community and businesses who are in need of your help. Why? Because this is only a moment in time that will pass, and you can do your part to help others even when you are forced to stay home. We have not forgotten about you and we hope you have not forgotten about us!

As I end this blog, I want you to get rid of the fearful mindset and take action! You can go from fear to empowerment. Stay away from the negativity. While you are doing your part to flatten the curve, create a positive mindset to help you overcome… get up, get dressed, eat right, stay active. One of my favorite quotes from Helen Keller is “Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it”. I love this quote because she was an over comer. She had so many reasons not to succeed, but she did. We at HeadMasters are taking action to make a difference in the community and for our stylists, our future stylists, our guests, and future guests. We encourage everyone to always practice good hygiene and keep your momentum. It may be dark and it may be difficult, but you can overcome this and we will see you on the upside.

 

FIVE THINGS TO SOLVE YOUR WINTER HAIR PROBLEMS

 

Winter is the time to LOVE your hair the most. We often link summer’s dry heat with hair damage, but winter can take a huge toll on our beautiful strands too. Chilly days outside and central heating indoors can dry your hair out until it loses shine, volume and feels limp and brittle. And, taking care of our hair in the winter is uncharted territory especially for us Texas folks!! 

If you have been dealing with any of these plus the frizzes, you are not alone. Redken says, “As the temperature drops, a new crop of hair issues starts to arise. Our roots begin to frizz and our ends rapidly dry out.” So, what is the answer to this you ask? Keep reading for 5 things Redken suggests for restoring moisture to your precious locks. 

  1. 1. Lock in Moisture 

It’s no secret that winter weather can be super drying on our strands. Be proactive this winter season by using products that will help to hydrate your strands and protect your hair from damage or breakage. By reaching for products that help to lock in moisture, you can better protect your ends and save yourself from heading to the salon.  

Redken's All Soft Mega Hydramelt Leave-In Treatment is an amazing option for keeping hair nourished and moisturized in the wintertime. The innovative formula is lightweight and can be used on all hair types to hydrate while increasing softness and shine. 

  1. 2. Fight Flakes 

As the temperature starts to plummet, so does the condition of our scalp. Between the chilly outdoor temperatures and the warm indoor heat, our scalps can become very dry and flaky. To help ward off the flakes and to keep your favorite black sweater looking spotless, switch to a shampoo that contains salicylic acid. This powerful ingredient works wonders at exfoliating the scalp, removing dead skin cells and breaking down any built-up product on the scalp. Use this exfoliating shampoo as needed to keep your hair free from flakes. 

  1. 3. Add Shine 

In the winter, your hair color can start to look dull or faded due to the dryness in the strands. Replenish your hair’s natural sheen by using a shine spray throughout your ends. Adding shine back to your strands can help to revitalize your hair color and make your strands look more vibrant. 

  1. 4. Use A Heat Protectant 

Get a heat protectant with dual benefits—protect your hair from heat damage as well as smooth your ends. It’s a one-two punch for keeping your hair looking fabulous 5. when styling your hair this winter.  

  1. 5. Pump Up the Volume 

Besides frizz, flattened roots are another annoying hair issue that comes with winter hat hair. In order to keep your roots looking full and voluminous, reach for a dry shampoo to help boost your strands. Simply spray throughout your roots and comb through with a metal brush to help liven up your hair. 

With a little extra effort, you can keep your hair hydrated and looking great this winter. But if you want quick results or have any questions about Redken products, we suggest you call, (903) 266-9192, and talk with a HeadMasters expert.
