Tips on How to Add Volume to Your Short Hair

Making your hair look voluminous while you’re styling is easy. Maintaining that volume throughout the day is what can be frustrating for anyone. You spend so much time ensuring your hair is exactly how you want it, only to find it looking dull and flat by mid-morning. This can happen to anyone, and particularly people with short hair. Sometimes grabbing your shiny hair extensions is the best route to go when you need to maintain volume. Here are some other tips to maintain your voluminous hairstyle throughout the day.

hair products for remy hairPart Your Hair Differently

If you are used to parting your hair one way, try parting it the opposite direction. Your hair can get used to laying down a certain way, essentially training the roots to go in one direction. So when you switch up the part, your roots have no choice but to lift up and you’ll maintain the volume throughout the day and for the next several days at least. It’s amazing what this one simple change to your quality hair care routine can do to your appearance.

Give Your Hair A Tease

When you tease your hair, the roots are forced to stand upright and will add instant volume. Be sure to use a quality paddle brush to make sure you don’t damage your roots in the process, and use your favorite hair products for Remy hair to help it hold in place. The more you tease your hair, the more voluminous it will appear.

Use Volumizing Hair Products

Having volumizing hair products for Remy hair in your collection will always help you out when you need them. This could include a volumizing shampoo and conditioner or other products to use after your shower. Dry shampoo can also be a quick fix when you’re in a pinch. The idea behind these types of products is to remove excess moisture from the hair roots so they will stand straight up and not be weighed down by the oils.

Add Hair Extensions

The great thing about shiny hair extensions is they add both length and volume instantly. People with short hair should select hair extensions that are slightly thicker than their natural hair so the strands will blend in easily. And with most shiny hair extensions, you can use the same volumizing hair products you use with your natural hair in order to maximize the volume.

RemySoft believes some of the best hairstyles are the simplest ones. Having an abundance of hair products for Remy hair is fine, but you have to be careful to not use a lot at once. In most situations, the fewer hair products you use, the more voluminous the hair will be. For more hair tips like these, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at any time.

3 Small Hair Changes to Transform Your Look

It can be a great feeling when you make a minor change to your hair, but everyone you see thinks it looks totally different. People are understandably afraid to make drastic changes to their hair, especially when it comes to the color and length. The good news is you don’t have to make drastic changes to make your hair look drastically different. Oftentimes adding hair extensions or making a slight adjustment to your quality hair care routine is all it takes. Here are three simple changes you can make to your hair to transform the look.

hair extensionsShow Off Your Facial Features With Tucked Hair

Many people keep their hair untucked because they believe it frames their face better. While this is true, tucking the hair behind the ears also has some benefits. When more of your face is showing, you can show off more of your facial features and you may even feel a greater sense of confidence as you go through your day. The only change to your quality hair care routine is tucking the hair behind the ears and pinning it down, while still wearing it straight, wavy, textured or any other style you choose.

Switch Your Part

It’s amazing how much we get into the habit of parting our hair one way. And people also get used to seeing you with your hair parted a certain way. If you’ve gotten used to parting your hair to the left, switch it to the right or the center. Or if you usually part it in the center, pick one side or the other. You’ll notice the volume will increase drastically and people will want to know what you did. Combining the changing of the part with adding hair extensions can make it look like you spent hours at the salon, when it really only took minutes at your home.

Add Length And Volume

It’s always a good practice to use a quality sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to be able to work with your hair a little easier. And when you do, you’ll be able to easily blend in hair extensions to add both length and volume. If you have thin hair or short hair, try out hair extensions to see how you like longer hair. You may get some inspiration to start growing out your hair so you can work with it every day and not need the extensions.

At RemySoft, we always suggest making minor changes to your quality hair care routine before doing anything drastic. Most people are surprised at how simple alterations can make a major impact without having to change the permanent length or hair color at all. Doing so is the best of both worlds because you can keep the hair you’re comfortable with, but still step out of your comfort zone. For more tips and tricks like these, contact us at any time and we would be happy to help.

3 Hairstyles You’ll See Become Popular This Year

Celebrities and other personalities often dictate what the latest hairstyle trends are for any given year. Sometimes people want to mock the hairstyles they see exactly, while others simply use what they see as inspiration to create their own unique style. And with all the creative options available, this could be the year of the simple hairstyle. With the popularity of hair extensions continuing to increase, people are open to trying more styling options without significantly altering their natural hair. Here are three hairstyles we expect to become popular this year.

quality hair careWet Hairstyles

Have you seen someone’s hairstyle that looks like they just got out of the shower, yet it looks wonderful? The wet hairstyle is going to be popular this year because it’s easy to achieve. It can be straight or wavy, always looks sleek and doesn’t require a major change to your quality hair care routine. It begins with using the best sulfate free shampoo and then incorporating moisturizing products to make the hair shine throughout the day.

Center-Part Bangs

Bangs that are center-parted are also called curtain bangs. A hair trend we have been noticing lately is an emphasis on the bangs and trying out different styles. It’s amazing how much a simple alteration to your bangs can transform your entire look. Using the best sulfate free shampoo can make your bangs look healthy and shiny, and center-parting them frames the face to highlight your stunning facial features.

Rounded Bob

The rounded bob could end up being the most popular hairstyle this year. We are seeing more people opt for shorter hair than having long hair, but you can still use hair extensions to pull off the rounded bob. Simply create a deep part to one side and add some texture as desired to the rest of the hair. The idea with this hairstyle is to create a soft and bouncy appearance. Your hairstylist can use different trimming techniques to achieve the result you desire.

The experts at RemySoft pay attention to the latest hairstyle trends all the time. We take a lot of inspiration from celebrity hairstylists and try to figure out how the average person can alter their quality hair care routine to create a similar style. Most of the time it’s surprising to see how simple it is to create an elegant hairstyle, and we all know the simpler it is to create, the better it is overall. Whether you’re looking to make subtle or drastic changes to your hairstyle, we have plenty of ideas to help you depending on your hair type. We are always willing to discuss creative concepts, so contact us at any time.

5 Must Try Bang Styles

Sometimes changing your hairstyle can be challenging because there are so many great options to consider. If you’re in a spot where you aren’t sure what change you want to make, consider making subtle changes to your bangs and see how you like them. Many times a minor change to your bangs can make your entire hairstyle look different, so you could get some great ideas as a result. So grab your sulfate free shampoo and conditioner and take a look at these bang styles you have to try this year.

Textured

Textured bangs are always a hit and can be worn for both casual events, formal events and anything in between. They are as effortless to create as they look, as long as you have the right hair products for Remy hair to make the style hold. It’s amazing what a little bit of waviness can do to a hairstyle.

 sulfate free shampoo and conditionerCenter Part

Center part bangs are also called curtain bangs. The hardest part about this bang style is making the part precisely in the center of your head. Then you simply part the bangs to either side and hold them in place with your hair products for Remy hair and you’re ready to move forward with your day.

Curly

People with curly hair sometimes feel like they can’t participate in bang creativity, but that doesn’t have to be the case at all. In fact, people with curly hair can frame their face effortlessly by incorporating bangs to their look. If you have dry hair, just be sure to use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to keep the hair healthy so the bangs will hold to perfection.

Pixie

The pixie haircut is a simple style, and adding bangs to the look isn’t much harder. If you rock a pixie cut, we recommend incorporating bangs as well to see how it transforms your overall look. Most of the time the bangs will highlight your facial features without being too over-the-top.

Baby Bangs

One of the hottest trends you’ll see this year in the bangs category is baby bangs. This is when you chop the bangs off shorter than normal. Most people will stop just above the eyebrows, but you can choose to go as short as you desire. The chopped look shows off more of the face, while still giving you plenty of styling opportunities with your hair.

RemySoft is a believer in making simple changes to hairstyles in order to make a big difference in a person’s overall appearance. That’s why we love experimenting with different bang styles, since they can make a big impact with minimal effort in most cases. With the right hair products for Remy hair and a vision for what you want your hair to look like, you have plenty of options available to you. Feel free to contact us at any time for questions, concerns or tips about your specific hairstyle.

Trendy Hair Colors for Spring

It may still be cold where you live, but it doesn’t mean it’s too early to start thinking about the warmth of the spring season. Spring is full of colors everywhere you look, including hairstyles. The biggest question isn’t about whether you’ll see various hair colors, but which ones will be most popular. There are always different hair color trends from year-to-year, and we’ve predicted some of the hottest ones we believe we will see this year. It’s time to start altering your quality hair care routine for the spring and think about these different color options.

Rooted Dark Blonde

The rooted dark blonde color is similar to a dark beige color, and light enough to not be considered brown. The base will be a bit darker and the color will get lighter as it goes toward the tips. Depending on your natural hair color, you can be creative with how dark or light you go. Just always remember to use your sulfate free shampoo so the ombre look will always look amazing.

sulfate free shampooStrawberry Blonde With Honey Highlights

The strawberry blonde look is always going to be a popular color selection for the spring season. It’s the perfect mix between blonde and red hair. But this year honey highlights will be incorporated with the style more than in the past. The slight golden shine does just enough to make the hairstyle stand out, so be sure to use your leave in conditioner as needed to ensure the shine remains.

Caramel Ombre

If you have dark brown or black hair, consider adding some caramel highlights. Some people may go with a full caramel ombre look that starts at the roots, but it’s also perfectly fine to just add a lighter color near the tips. Finding the perfect neutral color is the biggest challenge, since you don’t necessarily want the caramel highlights to change your entire hair color. Your stylist can help you find the perfect tone to fit your desires.

Pastels

Sometimes you may feel the need to make a drastic change in your hair color. The spring season is the perfect time to switch to a pastel look, so now is the time to consider the colors. We are seeing more celebrities than ever before choose pastels, which makes it no surprise as to why they are becoming trendy. No matter what color you choose, be sure to have the right quality hair care routine and use the best sulfate free shampoo you can find to keep the colors vibrant.

At RemySoft, we love seeing all the creative hairstyles people come up with. Mixing and matching different colors is a great way to experiment and possibly discover an amazing style you never thought was possible. Spring is just around the corner, so contact us at any time if you have any questions or need any kind of hair styling tips.

The Ultimate Guide to Tame Flyaways

Out of all the possible annoyances styling your hair brings, a flyaway that refuses to stay down has to be near the top of the list. Most of us have fought one of these battles before, and you’re not alone if you lost it and had to alter your hairstyle for the day to cover it up. Sometimes you can use multiple hair products for Remy hair to no avail, but don’t give up hope yet! Here’s a quick guide and a few suggestions for taming your flyaways you may not have tried yet.

sulfate free shampooChange Your Shampoo

Most of the time you’ll notice flyaways after the hair has been dried and you’re beginning to style it. At that point it’s sometimes too late and you’ll have to resort to trying to hide them. Instead, minimize your chances of discovering a flyaway by changing to a sulfate free shampoo. A good quality sulfate shampoo will cleanse the hair and leave just enough oils and moisture in it to prevent frizzy and dry hair, which are some of the main causes of flyaways.

Air Dry Your Hair If Possible

If you’ve gotten into the habit of grabbing a towel and rubbing your hair to dry it quickly, you may be contributing to the annoying flyaways you’re experiencing. The fibers from the towel can create frizziness, so opt for air drying instead. You can speed up the process by dabbing your hair with a cotton shirt so it can get a jump start air drying. Then once you have dry hair, there’s a better chance you won’t see any flyaways.

Be Careful With Dry Hair

You likely are well aware if you have dry hair or not. One bad habit many people with dry hair have is grabbing their hair brush and running it through the hair when they see a tangle. This may get the tangle out, but it could also lead to flyaways because of the increased friction created in the hair. To avoid the flyaways and still get similar positive results, use a wide-tooth comb on damp hair since it will create less friction and decrease the chances of frizziness occurring.

Skip The Heat Styling Tools

Even if you use the best sulfate free shampoo you can find, heat styling tools will always increase the chances of experiencing flyaways. A blow dryer is the main culprit, but a flat iron is up there as well. Try skipping these tools and opting for hair products for Remy hair designed to tame frizziness instead.

At RemySoft, we know there aren’t many things more frustrating than dealing with flyaways. A perfect hairstyle can be ruined because of them, and it can put a damper on your entire day. There isn’t a single cure-all solution for flyaways, but these tips should give you a starting point to see what technique works best for you. If you have any questions about any of these processes, feel free to contact us at any time.

3 Tips on How to Help Prevent Heat Damage

One of the most common hair care habits people have is grabbing their heat tools to help style their hair. This could be because they are always in a hurry and don’t have much time to spend on their hair, or it could also be because it’s a quicker and easier way to style it. Regardless of the specific circumstances, heat styling can create heat damage to the hair if you don’t at least use a protective hair serum. There are some quality hair care tips to prevent heat damage, which we’ve explained to you here.

protective hair serumUse A Heat Protectant

If you know you’ll be using heat tools on a particular day, prepare your hair for it by using a protective hair serum designed to protect it from the heat. Not only will this product protect the hair from getting damaged, but it will also tame frizziness, condition the hair and make it shiny all with one application. It’s hard to completely eliminate heat styling tools if you’ve become used to them, so at least incorporate this product going forward to help out.

Let Your Hair Air Dry As Much As Possible

Plan ahead and allow your hair some time to air dry as much as possible after washing with your best sulfate free shampoo. Air drying is important to protect your strands, since the alternative of rubbing it with a towel can cause more harm than good. Plus, the longer you let the hair air dry, the less amount of time you’ll need to use the heat tools. This reduced exposure will benefit your hair in more ways than one.

Limit Heat Tool Use And Lower Temperature Settings

Blow dryers, straightening irons and curling irons are life savers, but should be used only when absolutely needed. Whatever your current frequency of using these tools is now, skip a day or two the next time and try a new hairstyle. But even if you must use them, consider lowering the temperature setting as much as you can and see if it still gets the job done. These minor adjustments to your quality hair care routine will go a long way in preventing heat damage and helping your hair look healthy at all times.

RemySoft is here to help you have the best quality hair care routine that works for you. We understand the need to use heat styling tools occasionally, but it’s also important to not rely on them solely for hair styling, since heat damage can occur over time. If you have any questions about your hair styling techniques or what you could be doing differently to help your hair, don’t hesitate to contact us at any time.

The Best Ways to Manage Split Ends

When you’re dealing with split ends, it can seem impossible to find a hairstyle that looks great. We understand exactly what you’re going through, but the good news is there are different ways you can make your split ends manageable. Sometimes it takes a switch in your shampoo, using a different comb or even changing some of the hair products for Remy hair you currently use. Check out these tips to help you deal with your split ends.

Switch To Sulfate Free Shampoo And Conditioner

Everyone should use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner, but it’s especially important to do so when you have damaged and dry hair. Split ends are inevitable with damaged hair but a quality sulfate free shampoo and conditioner can prevent them from occurring. Doing so will add in moisture to your hair, while keeping the oils that naturally develop on the hair to protect it and prevent it from drying out.

Add Moisture To Your Hair

If you constantly have dry hair, then taking the extra step of adding moisture to it will help tremendously. You don’t necessarily have to go over the top with moisturizing products, but making it a point to incorporate them in your hair care routine will go a long way in preventing and managing split ends. Once you trim your split ends, your hair will thank you for the continued use of moisturizing products and the chances of them coming back are much smaller.

Use A Wide-Tooth Comb To Brush Through The Hair

dry hairBelieve it or not, you could actually be creating more split ends by the way you brush your hair. It seems natural and normal to brush your hair right after getting out of the shower, but the truth is brushing wet hair can cause more harm than good since it gets damaged easier. Instead, use a wide-tooth comb to brush through the hair and let it air dry a bit before taking this step. When your hair is damp, a wide-tooth comb is gentle enough to get out any tangles without damaging your hair and causing split ends.

Select Your Hair Products Wisely

While there are plenty of hair products for Remy hair to help keep yours healthy, there isn’t a single product designed to eliminate split ends. Instead, you have to use a collection of hair products to manage them and prevent any further damage. Most of the time this just means using hydrating products free of sulfates, along with altering your hair care routine as needed.

At RemySoft, we understand the struggles you’re going through with managing your split ends. Sometimes you just have to get them trimmed, but establishing a great hair care routine prior to the trim can set you up for great success with your hair afterward. Just because you have dry hair now doesn’t mean you always have to have it, so contact us to see what we can do to help you manage and prevent your split ends.
