These Tips Will Help You Get Perfectly Straightened Hair!

Sometimes you just want to go out with perfectly straightened hair—but, sometimes, your hair just won’t cooperate and you’ll end up with a frizzy mess. One of the main tips we can offer to achieve perfectly straightened hair is to not rush the process. The conditions have to be right, and you need to be using the proper hair products for Remy hair to help you out as well. By following these tips, you’ll be able to reduce some of your frustration and be able to walk out of the house and come back home at the end of the day with straight hair.

1. Work With a Hot Straightener

Everyone sleeps late occasionally, which causes us to rush our hair care routine. However, if you’re going for a straightened hairstyle, you need to be patient and let the straightener get up to the proper temperature. If you try to straighten your hair while the straightener is in the process of heating up, you’ll end up with a frizzy mess. Repetitive movements with the straightener may seem like the solution, but you’re actually just making it worse.

2. Dry Your Hair Completely

When you wash your hair with the best sulfate free shampoo you have, be sure to let it dry completely before attempting to curl it. If you don’t have time to let it dry naturally, you can blow-dry it briefly to speed up the process. The blow-drying process doesn’t have to be perfect. All you’re looking for is to make sure your hair is completely dry.

3. Opt for the Brush Instead of the Comb

There are times when the comb is better than the brush, but straightening your hair isn’t one of them. The general rule is to use the comb when your hair is wet, but use a brush when it’s dry. If you comb your dry hair, you run the risk of creating static and causing split ends. No matter how much protective hair serum you use, you can’t make up for the disadvantages of using a comb versus a brush.

4. Work Slow and Steady

It’s worth mentioning again that you need to take your time to achieve perfectly straightened hair. Wash your hair with the best sulfate free shampoo, dry it however you would like and then work the straightener through slow and steady. If you rush the process, you might as well choose a different hairstyle for the day since you won’t achieve the straight look you’re aiming for.

At Remysoft, we not only offer the best hair products for Remy hair, but we also can provide you with some great hair care routine tips. If you’re constantly struggling with achieving straight hair with your straightener, be sure to contact us.

Spiky Hair is Back! Here’s How to Style Your Spikes

RemySoft quality hair careGreat news, guys! The spiky hairstyles you’ve long desired since ‘90s are back in style! After taking such a long hiatus, it’s time to re-teach yourself how to style those sharp spikes. However, before you do, you need to make sure you have the right haircut. The ideal hair length is anywhere from ½” to 2”, but you can easily grow it out a little bit longer and still get great results. When you let your stylist know your intention to create some slick spikes, they’ll know exactly what to do to set you up for success.

Gather The Right Products

There’s not a single magical product that can make the best spiky hairstyle. However, some of the best quality hair care products to use includes gels, wax and/or pomade. Using a good leave in conditioner is also ideal prior to spiking your hair, just to make sure it will be in the best shape possible before you start styling.

Don’t Overlook Details

The main consideration with styling spiky hair is the details. Once you use your product of choice to coat your hair thoroughly and lift it up, you just need to use your fingers to define the shape. Take your fingers and start at the base of the hair, then run them up to the tip to ensure the spike is completely coated with gel or wax. Do this one-by-one to ensure uniformity.

Some guys choose to use a protective hair serum to minimize hair damage, but it’s not a complete necessity in most cases. You could use a combination of hair gel and wax to further define each spike and detail them how you wish. If you accidentally coat your locks with too much gel or wax and it won’t dry in place, you can use a blow dryer to harden them more quickly.

Spikes With Long Hair?

While it’s easier to create a spiky hairstyle with short hair, don’t feel like you’re left out if you have long hair. Keep in mind we’re talking about hair no longer than about 3”, in most cases. Just use the same quality hair care routine as described above for short hair. However, you’ll likely need to incorporate some hair spray or protective hair serum due to the extra length. The only difficult part about long spiky hair is it takes a little more time to perfect.

At Remysoft, we have all the products guys need to achieve the spiky hairstyle they desire. Be sure to contact us for styling tips or to get the perfect quality hair care products.

You’ll be amazed at the amount of volume this simple change creates! If you don’t have long enough hair to flip over, you can make an investment in hair extensions to be able to pull it off.

3. Straight and Sleek

Our Tips for Textured Hair

One of the hottest hairstyle trends today is textured hair. It takes some time and effort to create a great-looking textured hairstyle, but just about anyone can accomplish it. Depending on your current hairstyle habits, you may not have to change your routine much. It may be as simple as using sulfate free shampoo and conditioners rather than your normal product. Regardless of your current habits, here are some great tips for getting the perfect textured hairstyle.

1. Ditch the Comb

Your comb may be good enough to make your hair look presentable, but if you truly want a good textured hairstyle, it’s time to invest in some new quality hair care tools. Combs make it difficult to texturize your hair, so opt for a brush with boar bristles instead. Remember, you’re going for a natural look, so a comb is rarely your best option.

2. Don’t Over-Wash

Washing too frequently can lead to dry hair. Reducing the amount of times you wash your hair each week will allow you to add some texture to your hair and you’ll notice an almost immediate difference in the appearance. It will also help to use sulfate free shampoo and conditioners for the few times you do wash your hair.

3. Invest in a Quality Towel

The more you dry and rub your hair, the more friction you cause. Friction will cause hair strands to break and become frizzy, which means less friction will lead to better overall hair quality. Choose a microfiber towel to dab your hair dry, since it has proven to be gentler on hair. If you’ve tried different products and techniques to improve your quality hair care, consider changing your towel and see if it makes a difference.

4. Opt for Conditioner Over Shampoo

The whole purpose of having textured hair is the definition it provides. Shampoo doesn’t usually help in that regard, but conditioner will. Many conditioners provide your hair with the right amount of moisture you need to be able to style your hair how you want. Avoid using shampoo a few times and just use conditioner instead to see how you like the results. If you need to, you can also apply a small amount of protective hair serum to help your hair quality as well.

Textured hair can be difficult to achieve, but it is possible with the right products and mindset. Be sure to contact us if you need any more tips or would like recommendations on the best quality hair care products.

Our New Years Resolutions for Healthier Hair

A new year means it’s time to think about resolutions we want to make to ensure 2017 is the best it can possibly be. Most people want to lose weight, make more money or be more active in the community in the New Year. Those are great resolutions, but maintaining healthier hair generally gets overlooked as a resolution. Whether you’ve got your list of New Year’s resolutions finalized or not, here are some healthy hair resolutions you can make for 2017.

1. Watch Your Diet

This is one of the top New Year’s resolutions people make, and if you take it a step further, it can lead to healthier hair too! When a healthy diet is combined with hair products for Remy hair, you will be able to produce healthier-looking hair this year. If you’re already trying to eat a better diet anyway, simply add some hair care products and you’ll be knocking out two resolutions just that easily!

2. Protect Your Hair

Always keep your hair in mind no matter what’s going on. Don’t wait until your hair gets dry or damaged to use protective hair serum. Use it when you know you’ll be spending a lot of time out in the sun. Try different products as well, like sulfate free shampoo and conditioners, which may be better for your hair than the generic products you are currently using.

3. Use Less Heat

Straighteners and hair dryers are convenient when you’re short on time. However, they can be damaging to your hair by making it dry, rough and frizzy. Instead, try out different hair products from Remy hair as substitutes for these heating tools. Sometimes it may be unavoidable to use those heat tools, but try to at least avoid making it a habit to use them on a daily basis.

Men generally visit the salon more than women to get their haircut, but everyone can benefit from more frequent trips to a trusted hair care professional. Your hair salon will give you advice on how to properly take care of your hair from visit-to-visit. Sometimes we can’t tell if our hair is showing signs of damage until it’s too late. Make it a point to visit your salon regularly in 2017.

Say “Goodbye” to Hat Hair with These Chic Hairstyles!

Now that autumn’s here, you may be more than ready to dive straight into hat season. It doesn’t help there are so many options to choose from! From beanies to trapper’s hats to cutified newsboy caps, there’s no shortage of ways to accessorize as the cold weather settles in. There’s just one problem with hats you can’t avoid…right? We’re talking about hat hair, one of the most common plagues of any hat-loving individual. RemySoft is here to remedy this problem with our list of hat-friendly hairstyles! When combined with a bit of quality hair care, you’ll never again have to worry about a flat look once your hat is off.

Your Natural Hair

This first suggestion may seem a bit obvious. You likely already wear hats with your natural hair so how is this a huge piece of advice? Sometimes the best solution is to simply go with the flow and not try too hard by doing too much. Anyone, from those with the curliest of locks to pin straight hair, can easily rock a hat by just leaving their hair loose and letting nature take its course where it may. If you’re big on styling, this is a great way to take a break from fiddling with your heat tools and spending some time with your hair as-is. You may be surprised by just how good this style looks!

Keep your hair looking great with hair products for remy hair.

Fishtail Braid

If you still want to add a bit of styling, there’s nothing wrong with it! With the right hair products for remy hair and this next style, your hair will still look great. After all, there’s nothing more classic than a cute braid! Simply take your hair and gather it either to one side of your head or in the back. After that, you can start the braiding process. Be sure to make the braid tight, but not so tight you wind up uncomfortable. Once you’re done braiding, secure it with a hair tie, slip your hat on and go about your business!

Up with Side Fringe

This last style is great for those who simply don’t want to fuss too much with their hair. This style gets the majority of your hair out of the way, leaving only an alluring curtain crafted from your bangs. Take your hair and pull it back into a simple ponytail, as high up as you need for it to sit well inside your hat. Bundle it into a loose bun. As you do this, be sure to leave your fringe or a side section of your hair out and loose. This will drape down the side of your face, out from the hat. We guarantee this look is gorgeous and elegant and is great if you want to look especially chic!

We hope these hairstyles will leave you unafraid of rocking your best hats this autumn! For best results, add a bit of protective hair serum to lock in a bit of extra moisture where your hat meets your hair. This will prevent the hat from sucking up too much hydration if it’s lined with cotton or a similar fabric. Contact us with any further questions about quality hair care, no matter the time of year!

How Can You Safeguard Your Hair Against Cold Weather?

Now that autumn has arrived, you’re likely bracing yourself for the incoming cold in all sorts of ways. Now is the season of warm lattes, toasty sweaters and tall boots, spiced apple cider and enjoying the crisp air and gentle, swaying dance of falling leaves before the first snow touches down. However, while you may be enjoying the change of weather, your hair certainly isn’t!

As the holidays start closing in and winter begins to replace autumn, you may find yourself dealing with especially dry hair. While you may chalk this up to simply being one of the less enjoyable parts of winter, you can also do something to lend your hair a helping hand. Here are some tips!

Make Your Humidifier Your Best Friend

Simply staying in the warm indoors isn’t enough to keep your hair properly moisturized! It’s often just as dry as the air outside but with an unwanted bonus of static electricity that can cling to your hair. A common humidifier can help assuage this problem by providing a bit of extra moisture for your hair to absorb. No longer will you have to worry about frizz since the harmful excess humidity you’ve felt in autumn will be long gone!

Try to Limit Your Shampooing

Hydrating shampoo can be a great option.

Use hydrating shampoo sparingly this winter.

When it comes to dry hair, you may consider hydrating shampoo to be your ultimate savior. However, using it too often can bring its own poor results. It’s worth mentioning, first off, chilly air and soaked hair do not mix. The cold weather will immediately dry your hair out. Try to cut back on washing your hair by doing so every other day or up to three times per week.

Bundle Up

All the warnings Mom gave you about bundling up before leaving the house really do hold true! Wearing a hat is a great way to shield your hair from the frosty air outside. This will help to retain moisture. Of course, you also want to avoid your hat ruining your perfectly styled hairdo! To keep your hair as sleek as it was when you first left the house, pair your hat with a scarf made from moisture-protecting materials, such as silk.

Invest in Extra Protection

There’s no such thing as being too careful! If you’ve followed every step and find your hair is still a little on the dry side, it may be worth your while to invest in some protective hair serum to really lock in your hair’s moisture. Even a little bit worked into your follicles can help stave off cold air and its unwanted effects.

While autumn and winter have plenty of wonderful benefits, you don’t want to enjoy them at your hair’s expense! RemySoft is here to help you protect your hair no matter the time of year, which is why we offer the best products to ensure your hair remains constantly healthy and sleek. Contact us to learn how else you can help your hair thrive in cold weather or to pick up some of our top-notch hair care products!

Go Wild! A Quick, No-Fuss Guide to Unnatural Hair Colors

Hair dye has always been popular, but it seems recent years have brought particular focus on unnatural colors—pinks, blues, purples, greens and everything in between. No longer are these hair colors solely restricted to the alt crowd! However, no matter how vibrant the color you choose, you’ll have to invest special attention in its maintenance. Unnatural hair colors can require even more maintenance than more natural dyes. To help you make the most of your vibrant locks, we’ve put together a list of tips and tricks to follow.

Brands Aren’t One Size Fits All

Just because one brand works amazingly for one person doesn’t mean it’ll unleash the same magic on your hair. Everyone’s scalp is different. You may have to shop around for several brands until you find one that gives you just the right amount of pigmentation. It all depends on what you’re looking for!

No matter how vibrant you want your hair to look, you’ll want to let the dye set for as long as possible, around 60 minutes. This will give the pigment time to really absorb and create a stronger color. The deeper the color, the longer the dye will last!

Beware of Blue Hair

Your color lasts longer with hair products for remy hair.

Hair products for remy hair will keep your color lasting longer.

Don’t think we’re trying to discourage you from going blue entirely! It’s a lovely color. If you do decide to go blue, however, be prepared to undergo a lot of maintenance to keep your hair fresh-looking. If you can, consider buying multiple boxes of the same dye so you can recolor your hair more easily. Be sure to also use plenty of sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to help preserve your color!

Seek Professional Assistance

The vast majority of people won’t be able to dive into their dyeing tools straight away. Instead, they’ll have to bleach their hair first, then apply the color. It’s best, however, to let a professional handle the task of bleaching. The bleaching process is the most damaging part of dyeing your hair. You don’t want to risk frying your hair beyond repair, especially if this is your first time using dye. A professional will know just how to render your hair as white as possible with minimal damage. You can also ask your stylist questions on how to best approach the dyeing process. They can then provide you with useful hair products for remy hair to keep your hair healthy.

Consider Your Natural Hair Color

The darker your hair color is, the harder it will be to render it just the right color. At the same time, hair of other tones, such as golden, tend to blend with your dye and make unexpected colors. Try to picture it like you’re mixing paint. Unless you’re going for a totally different color than depicted on the box, you’ll want to invest in some toning to even out the pigmentation.

We hope these tips will help you as you navigate your hair dyeing journey. Don’t forget your protective hair serum to really help your new color thrive! For more tips on how to approach and maintain dyed hair, contact us.

Younger people are embracing the color now as an aesthetic choice for themselves—and it’s generating some adorable, positive results for both sides of the age spectrum!

There you’ll be treated to quality hair care, ensuring your new gray ‘do will last far longer. It’s a recipe for a new you that’s ten times as charming and suave!

For Women

RemySoft quality hair careFashionable women have likely already noticed the sudden popularity of “smokier” hair colors, such as gray and lilac. People are even combining these colors through the use of ombre and balayage, creating a unique and colorful display that styles incredibly well and coordinates with just about any outfit.

You can pair gray hair with just about any other hair color if you don’t want to go gray entirely. The most popular choices seem to be black, blue, brown and white, though you can choose just about any color you wish! Even straight up gray hair is bound to look amazing with the proper quality hair care. The most important part of picking a new hair color or style is being happy with your choice and knowing you look good with it, after all. Again, picking an excellent salon to take care of your dye job will work wonders and hook you up with just the right look.

Regardless of your gender, you don’t want to forget about maintenance! Like any light hair color, gray hair takes a lot of management to stay just the right shade. A good sulfate free shampoo and conditioner should help the color last longer. In addition, sun protection for hair will help to avoid too much unsightly fading from spreading too quickly. At RemySoft, we can help you take care of your gray hair with our fabulous products! To learn more about this hair trend and many others, as well as the care included, don’t hesitate to contact us!
