Hair, like people, comes in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. In order for us to keep the hair in a healthy and beautiful condition proper attention must be given to its care and treatment. {{more}}

Applying a harsh cosmetic such as one that contains a lot of alcohol or providing improper hair services can cause the structure to become weakened and damaged.

Some things one can practise to reduce damage to the hair shaft are:

1. Detangle hair starting from ends to upward. (This reduces breaking of hair at node area).

2. Desist from excessive blow drying. (wet hair stretches up to 40-50% of its length; this would encourage breakage). Use a hood dryer when drying.

3. Get a deep penetrating conditioner two (2) weeks before and after a chemical treatment.

4. Shampoo hair as regularly as needed.
