So, you want great hair? Join the club! Personalizing your own hair care routine is the most effective way to consistently nurture your hair. Personalization is key, because when are we involved in the process, we are more likely to follow through with taking care of our hair.
The following are tips on how you can better personalize your hair care routine to fit your needs and deliver the results you are seeking:
1. Identify your goals and concerns.
First and foremost, kindly ask yourself what concerns you have with your hair and consequently, what hair goals you aspire to achieve. Do you want to get rid of split ends? Would you prefer more volume? Are you looking to grow your hair out? Whatever it is, commit to taking care of your hair, love yourself as time progresses, and look forward to the end result of better hair.
2. Work with what your mama gave you.
Embrace your own, unique hair type and accept that certain hairstyles may just not be feasible for you. Anything is possible. However, there are only so many limits that can be pushed in hair care. Rather than trying to force a square peg into a round hole, come to terms with what is suitable for your hair, and what isn’t. For example, if you walk in with jet black hair, do not expect to walk out as a white blonde that same day. Your stylist will always want to make your hair dreams come true, but sometimes, they will advise against them or redirect you if they feel it is in your greatest interest.
3. Choose products wisely.
There are so many products out there, it can be easy to become overwhelmed or unsure of what to use. Talk with your stylist, do your research, turn and learn the labeled ingredients, and invest in products that will transform your hair for good, not for worse. Use our in-house line of products, TENAJ, to experience the power of science and the beauty of nature in hair care! Our TENAJ products are available for sale at the TENAJ Salon Institute and all Salon Jaylee’s in The Villages, FL.
4. Play around with it.
There is no “one size fits all” in hair care. Because everyone’s hair is different, it’s up to you to play around with works for you, and what doesn’t. If you have thin, flat hair, try a volumizing product or at-home blow out. If you have thick, untamable hair, try a an anti-frizz product or soothing keratin treatment. Through trial and error, you will soon discover the optimal hair care routine for your specific hair type!
