The Hair Blues

All hairstylist have had a client that was hard to please before. These are the ones who go from salon to salon complaining about the last one. Naturally, as both artists and professionals, we stylists go out of our way to please. We want to be that hot,talented stylist who can tame even the worst hair. But all that pressure to be “perfect” and to solve a client’s hair woes in one visit (If at all) can actually backfire. Sometimes when you try too hard you mess up. Sometimes the culprit in women’s hair – horror stories is not the stylist .

Here are some reasons/factors as to why some women are never pleased with their salon visits .

1. Too many stylists in your hair

Every hairstylist does not have the same style/skill. They also all do not use the same products. Your hair is confused & you maybe also. Everyone keeps giving conflicting hair advice and you don’t know who to listen to!? However,I do feel that people should have a back up stylist. Find a salon and stick with them for 3 months. Listen to their advice but also do research online by googling hair concerns.

2. Poor health

There are many health issues that affect your hair. Some you may not even be aware of. Eating disorders, stress, and even fungus can affect your hair growth. Sometimes the treatments for certain conditions (most notable chemotherapy for cancer patients) . Our bodies have a way of communicating things to us. Changes in your hair could signal a problem.

3. Medications

Some medicines can thin or completely take your hair out. So consult with your doctor .

4. Age

Wrinkles and high cholesterol are not the only things that happen as we get older. Our hair changes too! It turns grey & so does the texture of it. The hair can also thin and fall out. You may have to trade in that long mane (that was once thick) for a shorter,trendier style. You also may have to change your products.

5. Doing It Your Self

I know that times are hard for a lot of people. I think this is why natural hair maybe so popular right now. Staying away from chemicals is definitely cheaper and less damaging. But going natural is not an option for everybody. Some people have done their own relaxers and color for years and had no problems. I can’t explain why that is but I do know that MOST people eventually mess up their own hair. So I suggest leaving the cutting and chemicals to the stylist! You can do everything else yourself.

I believe their is a solution for every hair issue. It may not always be what we would prefer though. The best outcome that you can hope for is healthy hair. That does not always mean long hair down your back. Healthy hair means and looks different for everyone. Make sure that your hair and scalp are always clean. Wigs and weaves can always give you those styles that you can’t have but want.
