Damaged Hair? No Worries with These Everyday Hairstyles

Anyone who has colored their hair in the past may have damaged hair as a result. But damaged hair isn’t limited to just coloring it. Heat styling is a quality hair care routine that can lead to hair damage as well. The truth is many people deal with damaged hair on a daily basis. Sometimes it can make styling your hair a little difficult, but the good news is there are plenty of hairstyles to hide the damage. One of the main secrets is allowing the hair to air dry instead of further damaging it with heat tools. Here are some hairstyles you can accomplish without your hair looking damaged.

Single Fishtail Braid

The single fishtail braid is a classic hairstyle that’s simple to do and you won’t even be able to tell you have damaged hair. If you have shorter hair, consider clipping in hair extensions to achieve the perfect length for your braid. This hairstyle literally takes minutes to achieve and holds well throughout the day.

Sleek And Slicked Back

Damaged hair often has split ends and can have a frizzy appearance, making it seem impossible to pull off a sleek hairstyle. However, with the right quality hair care routine and using the right products, it’s more achievable than you think. Always start this hairstyle off with a good wash using a quality sulfate free shampoo and a leave-in conditioner. Doing so makes your hair easier to work with and will help you achieve the sleek appearance once it’s slicked back.

leave-in conditionerClassic Bun

The classic bun hairstyle looks great whether you have perfectly healthy hair or damaged hair. It’s often a go-to hairstyle for people with damaged hair, though, since it hides most of the imperfections. Simply pull your hair back in a ponytail, tie it up in a bun and secure it and you’re good to go. For some added volume, consider incorporating hair extensions as well.

Basic Low Ponytail

Another go-to hairstyle is the basic ponytail. Change it up a bit by securing it lower on the head, which will also put less tension on the strands. You can always add hair extensions if you want some extra length, but it’s not necessary since it’s such a basic hairstyle.

RemySoft knows what it’s like to deal with damaged hair. Sometimes simple alterations to your quality hair care routine can restore your naturally shiny and healthy hair over time. But until that happens, you still have plenty of options to achieve great hairstyles without anyone even noticing your damaged hair. For more tips and techniques on how to manage your specific hair type, don’t hesitate to contact us at any time for some inspiration.

Hairstyles Straight from the Runway

Have you ever noticed the hottest hairstyle trends typically originate from the runway? Celebrity hairstyles are always critiqued down to the smallest details, and one of the reasons why this is true is because the average person wants to know how they can accomplish the gorgeous hairstyles themselves at home. You would be surprised at how simple some of the hairstyles are and how much shiny hair extensions plays a role in creating them. Here are some of the most popular hairstyles we’ve seen on the runway over the past several months and how you can incorporate them into your portfolio of hairstyles.

The Sleek Bun

Putting your hair into a bun may not sound like the most glamorous hairstyle, but you can polish it up to the point where it looks amazing. Two secrets for a sleek tight bun are using shiny hair extensions and twisting up the hair in different sections. The more hair extensions you use, the bigger the bun will be. The polished look will match well with any wardrobe type and allows you to highlight your facial features as well.

Long Braids

Whether you prefer tight braids, loose braids, small braids or voluminous braids, one trend on the runway has been braids with length. A combination of shiny hair extensions and sulfate free shampoo can make working with braided hair easy and look slick and polished. A popular hairstyle with long braids starts out being styled at the top of the head like a high ponytail, but then the braids get draped over the front of the body instead of flowing down the back like traditional styles.

Curly Bangs

People with curly hair often struggle with whether to incorporate bangs with their hair or not. But when you see celebrities who have done it, your decision will be made much easier. The main secret to having curly bangs is to use the proper hair products to fit the type of curls you have so they will hold their shape. This could be a good leave in conditioner or other products to maintain the perfect amount of hydration in the hair.

Any Hairstyle With Hair Barrettes

Hair barrettes are making a major comeback and it’s evident when you look at celebrities on the runway. You can use barrettes in virtually any hairstyle and instantly make it look more glamorous. We’ve seen them used in basic ponytails, braids, curls, waves or even straight and sleek hairstyles. Anyone can enhance the appearance of their hair with barrettes and you’re only limited to your own amount of creativity.

RemySoft always analyzes the most popular hairstyles we see celebrities have on the runway so we can offer tips to our customers. We get as much inspiration from these hairstyles as you do, and most of the time we can’t wait to clip in our shiny hair extensions and start experimenting ourselves. If you’ve been inspired by any particular hairstyle recently, give us a call to discuss it and see how you can put it in your portfolio of hairstyles.

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.

3 Steps to Deep Condition Your Hair

It’s fun to try out different hair care products and techniques to see what makes your hair look the best. However, sometimes we get too dependent on trying out the latest trends and forget our hair needs a good deep condition occasionally. In fact, it may be essential to deep condition your hair if you experience damaged hair, dry hair or even if it’s colored. It’s not difficult to apply a hydrating shampoo and leave-in conditioner as part of the deep conditioning process, and the results are well worth the minimal effort. Here are three easy steps for effective deep conditioning of your hair.

hydrating shampooStart With A Quality Hydrating Shampoo

One of the main objectives of a deep condition is to hydrate your hair. So one of the first steps you should take is investing in a good hydrating shampoo the next time you wash. Hair can easily get dry or damaged depending on the weather elements and your hair care habits. There’s never a bad time to use a hydrating shampoo, since your hair will look shinier, feel softer and be much easier to work with when it’s well-hydrated.

Incorporate Leave-In Conditioner

Part of the deep conditioning process is to use a deep conditioner when washing your hair, and leaving it in for a couple minutes before rinsing. Once you’ve done that, you can also use a leave-in conditioner for a little extra conditioning treatment. The idea is to help your hair retain as much moisture as possible from the roots all the way to the tips of your hair. There are plenty of quality hair care products to help you accomplish this, and using the best leave-in conditioner is one of them.

Use The Right Products And Routine For Your Hair

Everyone has a different hair type, so what works for someone may not work for you. Deep conditioning is necessary to do occasionally to rejuvenate your hair and give it a fresh start. Finding the right quality hair care products may take some experimentation, but the idea is to use products that promote hydration or are designed to moisturize the hair.

RemySoft has all of the quality hair care products you need to give your hair a great deep condition. But while the products you use play a major role, the techniques you use are important as well. We are here to help you with both aspects so you can revitalize your hair and create more hairstyling opportunities than you’ve ever had. Never hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about deep conditioning or anything else related to your hair.

Is There a Right and Wrong Way to Air Dry Your Hair?

There’s always going to be a debate about which technique is better: air drying or blow drying hair. Both techniques have advantages and disadvantages, but when it comes to keeping your hair healthy and free from potential damage, air drying is the way to go. This is especially true if you wear hair extensions frequently, which can damage much easier. Whether you’ve been air drying your hair for a while or are going to give it a shot for the first time, here are the steps to take to ensure you achieve the best results.

Squeeze Out Water And Apply Hair Serum

Squeezing out as much water from your hair as you can before you get out of the shower will speed up the drying process tremendously. Many people make the mistake of just squeezing out the water and then not touching their hair until it dries. The problem with this is you may experience some frizziness you didn’t expect. One of the best ways to combat this unwanted frizz is to apply a hair serum, like a leave in conditioner, as soon as you squeeze out the excess water. This will help keep your hair tame as it slowly air dries.

Opt For Patting Dry Instead of Rubbing

Patting your hair dry may seem ineffective and not nearly as effective as rubbing it with a towel, but it’s the key to getting the best results. Rubbing the hair with a towel can create an excessive amount of frizz, as well as damage the strands. When you pat the hair, use a softer towel than you would for drying off your body normally. Then wrap it up and let it dry as long as you need to.

hair products for remy hairDetangle and Style

Once you let down your hair, detangle it by using a wide-tooth comb and brushing from the ends to the roots. The comb you use is just as important as the hair products for Remy hair you have, since the hair is still likely going to be a little damp when you use it. Damp hair is prone to breakage, so a wide-tooth comb will create minimal friction. Once you’ve done that, your patience has paid off and you’re finally ready to grab your favorite hair products for Remy hair and style it how your heart desires.

At RemySoft, we believe the best hairstyles come from having an attention to detail, rather than simply the use of products. Of course, a good leave in conditioner has plenty of value, but it can’t be a substitute for a quality hair care routine. We are a big supporter of air drying hair, so we hope these tips will help you the next time you choose to do so. If you have any questions or would like more tips like these, feel free to contact us at any time.

How to Create the Perfect Hairstyle While You Sleep

Throwing together a quick hairstyle in the morning when you’re in a rush is possible, but it typically doesn’t end up how you want it to. When you know the next morning is going to be frantic, or you simply won’t have time to style your hair how you’d like, consider an overnight hairstyle hack or two. All you need for most of them are some hair products for Remy hair, and of course, your sulfate free shampoo. Here are some tips and tricks for achieving hairstyles you can literally create while you sleep.

Make A High Bun To Retain Volume

If a voluminous hairstyle is what you want in the morning, then tossing and turning while you sleep with your hair down isn’t going to help. Instead, wash your hair with your sulfate free shampoo like you normally would, and maybe even add in some leave in conditioner as well. Then tie your hair up into a high bun and secure it. You won’t have to worry about it getting tangled or flattened while you sleep, and when you let the bun down in the morning, you’ll just need to shake it out and admire the volume that remained overnight.

Use A Silk Hair Scarf To Maintain Curls

Whether you have naturally curly hair or just want to make your curls the night before to save time in the morning, a silk hair scarf can be a lifesaver. Once your hair is curled, gather it up in a ball at the top of your head and wrap the silk scarf around it. The silk material helps protect the volume of the curls more than simply wrapping the hair up in a tight bun. The idea is to remove the silk scarf in the morning and you should only have to run your fingers through your hair to see the same quality curls you had the night before.

leave in conditionerBraid Your Hair For Heatless Waves

There’s been a big craze about heatless wavy hair lately, and for good reasons. To create this hairstyle, start with using your sulfate free shampoo and leave in conditioner. Once you’ve dried your hair completely, braid your hair in one big braid if your goal is to have loose waves. If you prefer tight waves, then have various small braids. Release it in the morning and you’ll have wavy hair that looks like it took you hours in the morning to achieve.

RemySoft wants you to be able to style your hair how you want to, and with as little effort as possible. Some hairstyles do take a while to achieve, but your day-to-day hairstyles don’t have to fall into that category. So the next time you can’t decide how you want to style your hair the next morning, consider these overnight styles to save you some time. And never hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about them or about your hair specifically.

3 Tips to Maintain Shiny Long Hair

Whether you love or hate your long hair, you have to maintain it in order for it to look great. Long hair is typically easier to damage, but with the right hair products for Remy hair and a consistent hair care routine, having shiny long hair every day is simple. In fact, sometimes the simpler your routine is, the better off your hair will be. If you’re struggling with making your long hair look as shiny and flawless as you’d like, here are a few tips to help you out.

Use The Right Shampoo And Conditioner

When it’s time to wash your hair, the only product you should consider is a sulfate free shampoo. Using a shampoo with sulfates can damage your hair and leave it looking dull and lifeless. But even when you use a quality sulfate free shampoo, you shouldn’t wash your hair every day. Washing too often will strip the hair of its natural oils and take away its shine as a result. When you’re in between hair washing days, consider incorporating a great leave-in conditioner. This is one of the most underrated products for maintaining shiny hair, especially long hair.

sulfate free shampooGet A Regular Trim

Not only will getting a regular trim keep your long hair looking neat, it will also keep it healthy. All hair will develop split ends after several weeks, so getting it trimmed consistently will ensure you always have flawless long hair. And contrary to popular belief, trimming your hair frequently does not cause it to grow faster, so you won’t have to worry about your hair growing out of control.

Don’t Overuse Hair Products

When you’re struggling with maintaining the shine in your long hair, it’s tempting to use a combination of hair products to try to figure out how to fix it. The reality is you may be causing more harm than good. You should only use a couple of hair products for Remy hair on a regular basis. The more products you incorporate, the more it will build up on your hair and leave it looking heavy and flat. Keep it simple with the products you use and only use them when they are absolutely necessary.

RemySoft takes great pride in helping everyone have the shiny long hair they desire. We understand the daily challenges of maintaining long hair, and we are here to suggest the perfect hair products for Remy hair to make your hair care routine simple and easy. Sometimes all it takes is incorporating a leave-in conditioner to make a world of difference. Feel free to contact us at any time to tell us about your hair and to get tips on how to best maintain it.

Heatless Hairstyles to get You Through the Week

There’s no question how effective heat tools can be when styling our hair. On the same hand, we know every time we use them, our hair has to pay the price for it. Heat protectant products can only be so effective, and the only way to truly protect your hair from heat damage is to not use the tools at all. But how are you supposed to style your hair without using the straightener or curling iron? Always start off by washing your hair with a great sulfate free shampoo, apply some leave-in conditioner as needed and check out these heatless hairstyles to try.

Braided Twist

Start by parting your hair to one side, take the large section of your hair in front and make a regular braid. When you’ve got the braid finished, pull the loops a bit to increase the volume. Then simply twist your remaining hair away from your face and fluff it out a bit. Wrap the twist around the braid and secure it and you’ll have a unique and creative hairstyle that looks like you spent a lot of time on it, but really didn’t. And you never have to use heat tools to pull this look off.

Half-Up, Half-Down Bun

The half-up, half-down bun is one of the most popular heatless hairstyles. Depending on how long your hair is, you may need to use some clip-in hair extensions to achieve it. The key to personalizing this hairstyle is pulling out certain hair strands from the bun in order to frame your face. It’s the perfect messy hairstyle that can be worn for many occasions.

Double Dutch Braids

This hairstyle is simple enough, and requires you to part your hair down the middle and create two dutch braids. The creativity is up to you, as you can add hair extensions for volume, incorporate hair accessories and more. With a little practice, you can create nice tight braids without using any heat tools to make the hair stay in place.

leave-in conditionerMessy Bun

Most ladies have worn the messy bun a time or two. In fact, it’s the ultimate go-to hairstyle because it takes mere minutes to achieve and doesn’t require perfection. And the messy bun sometimes even looks best with hair that hasn’t been washed in a day or two. Applying some leave-in conditioner will give it shine, volume and make it easier to work with.

RemySoft understands the need for using heat tools for certain occasions, but there are plenty of heatless hairstyles you can incorporate as well. Every great hairstyle starts by using a quality sulfate free shampoo. From there, you can combine a mix of accessories, hair extensions and creativity to pull off simple hairstyles without damaging the hair. For more tips and ideas like these, contact us at any time.

How to Achieve the Ultimate Shiny Hair

One of the biggest mistakes people make when trying to get shiny hair is using too many products. Some people are lucky enough to have naturally healthy hair that has a natural glow to it, but other people have to use the right amount of hair products for Remy hair to achieve the same results. The good news is you don’t have to change up your routine much to add some shine to your hair. Here are some of the most effective tips to instantly have shiny hair.

sulfate free shampooAlways Protect Your Hair

Protecting your hair from the outdoors and other elements is an underrated aspect of achieving shiny hair. Moisture is one of the harshest elements for hair and can strip the shine right out of it. To combat this, a quality leave in conditioner may do the trick. Using hair products like this to provide the hair with the moisture it needs to remain shiny will prevent it from drying out and getting frizzy.

Don’t Overuse Products

It’s tempting to continue piling on products in hopes that your hair will retain some moisture and restore its shine. However, once it reaches a certain point, your hair could turn into a greasy mess. A good quality sulfate free shampoo and leave in conditioner combination is often all you need to have the best shine. But if that doesn’t do the trick, then there are plenty of other hair products for Remy hair to experiment with. Just don’t use too many at once.

Skip A Hair Wash Occasionally

Washing your hair too often will strip the natural oils from it. You may be thinking your hair will look greasy if you don’t wash it with a sulfate free shampoo every day, but you’re actually keeping it healthy by skipping a wash. Your glands will work to produce more oils immediately after the oils are stripped, so the more you wash, the harder the glands will work. Skipping a day or two every now and then is good for your hair, and you may be surprised at the shiny results.

Manage Your Diet

We’ve all heard the phrase, “you are what you eat.” The same is true when talking about your hair. For the healthiest and shiniest hair, your body needs a balanced diet with the right amount of protein. So if you’ve struggled with getting your hair to look like you want it despite using numerous combinations of products, consider altering your diet for a few weeks and you may notice positive changes in your hair.

RemySoft thinks everyone deserves to have sleek and shiny hair if it’s something they want to achieve. Too many people give up trying to get their hair to look a certain way, and we are here to help. We understand how frustrating it can be sometimes, but we have the right hair products for Remy hair, along with years of expertise, to help you have the locks you’ve always wanted. Don’t hesitate to give us a call and we will offer some guidance to transform your hair to the shiniest hair you’ve ever had.

How to Have Salon Blowout Hair at Home

Most of us will agree there’s not a much better feeling with your hair than when you go home from the salon after a great blowout. Unfortunately, that amazing feeling and appearance goes away within a matter of days or even hours. But what if you could mimic a salon blowout from the comfort of your own home? With the right techniques and the best hair products for Remy hair, the reality of this happening is more possible than you may think. Here are some tips for achieving salon blowout hair at home.

sulfate free shampooStart With A Hair Wash

The first step is to wash your hair with a quality sulfate free shampoo. Be sure the shampoo gets rubbed in thoroughly from the roots to the tips. The importance of using a sulfate free shampoo at this step can’t be understated, since it will keep your hair strong and prevent tangling, frizziness or even damage to it. When the shampoo is washed out thoroughly, you can move on to the next step.

Give A Little Moisture To Your Hair

Your hair needs a little moisture now, which can be achieved by applying a leave in conditioner. The ends of the hair will naturally dry out quicker than the roots, so be sure to apply the leave in conditioner evenly so the moisture in the hair is distributed throughout. Adding moisture at this step will help protect the hair and keep it slightly damp as you move on to the blow dryer.

Create Volume By Blow Drying Upside Down

Most hairstylists won’t blow dry your hair completely before styling it. Instead, they will stop while the hair is still slightly damp in order to prevent damage to the hair and to help it hold its style better. You can create the most volume in your hair at home by blow drying it upside down until it is almost dry. Alternatively, you can stand up while blow drying, but be sure to continuously run your fingers through your hair to create volume.

Work In Sections

Depending on the length of your hair, it may be necessary to work your blow dryer in sections to ensure it gets a nice even blowout. Not only will this create the maximum amount of volume in your hair, but it will also make it easier to work with when it’s time to style. Once you’ve finished your salon-style blowout, you’re ready to apply the hair products for Remy hair you desire and feel great about your hair.

RemySoft enjoys helping people create a professional-looking hairstyle from the comfort of their own home. Most of the time it comes down to the techniques used on your hair, but the hair products for Remy hair also make a difference. Having a nice salon blowout feels great occasionally, so feel free to contact us for more tips about how to achieve it, or for anything else relating to your hair.
