What Hair Care Products to Pack This Spring Break

The spring season signifies the time of year when a lot of people start booking travel plans. The first big vacation many people take is during spring break, which will be here before you know it. You’ve got a lot of different things to plan for and pack, but you can’t forget about your hair. Investing in a quality leave-in conditioner may be all you need to survive your upcoming vacation, but here are some other products to consider taking along with you as well.

sulfate free shampoo and conditionerUse Sulfate Free Shampoo And Conditioner

Whether you plan on washing your hair every night or every couple of days during your trip, always wash with a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. It’s strong enough to clean your hair, yet gentle enough to ensure it doesn’t strip away all of the natural oils produced by your scalp. If you’re going to a humid location for your spring break trip, sulfate free shampoo and conditioner should be the first product you pack in your suitcase.

Heat Protection Products

Assuming you’ll be spending a decent amount of time in the sun during spring break, be sure to pack sun protection for hair. Excessive UV rays can make your hair dry and brittle, so you don’t want to have to be fighting with styling it during your trip and afterward. Heat protection products are also valuable if you plan on using heat tools to style your hair during your trip. Of course, you could also turn down the temperature on those tools to reduce the risk of damaging your hair as well.

Dry Shampoo Is Great When You’re Short On Time

While we don’t necessarily promote dry shampoo as being a product you should use regularly, it’s no secret it can bail you out when you’re in a pinch. Sometimes after a long day of fun-filled activities, the last thing you want to do is wash your hair with sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. Dry shampoo can come to the rescue to make your hair look presentable for another day or two until you’re able to wash it thoroughly.

Spray Bottle To Hydrate Your Hair

Keeping your hair hydrated is almost as important as hydrating your body. When you’re outdoors during spring break, remember your hair likely hasn’t been exposed to as many elements in the past few winter months. It can dry out quickly and end up tangled, knotted or brittle. You don’t need anything fancier than a spray bottle that you fill with water and carry along with you. Spritzing your hair with water every few hours when you’re outdoors can go a long way in keeping it healthy and hydrated no matter the weather elements.

RemySoft is excited about the change in seasons since it always brings new inspiration with hairstyles. Protecting your hair should always be the number one concern you have. Then once you have healthy hair, you have many more styling options to consider. If you have any questions or concerns about what hair products you should pack for your upcoming trip, feel free to contact us at any time.

The Quick and Easy Ways to Achieve Shiny, Healthy Hair

If you think it’s impossible to achieve shiny and healthy hair, no matter how hard you try, you might be trying too hard. A common mistake people make is using too many hair products for Remy hair and being too rough with their hair care techniques without even knowing it. These things can result in dry, brittle and damaged hair and can be easily avoided. Here are some quick and easy tips for achieving shiny and healthy hair with very minimal effort.

Wash With The Right Shampoo And Conditioner

Using a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner is the first step in achieving healthy and shiny hair. Sulfates can be too harsh on the hair by stripping away the natural oils and can lead to dry hair. Also, consider washing your hair every 2-4 days rather than every day to give it a break and retain some of the oils to protect it. And regardless of whether your shampoo contains conditioners, it’s always a good thing to apply some leave-in conditioner for added protection and extra shine.

Turn Down The Water Temperature

When you take a hot shower, your hair cuticles open up and can lead to moisture loss. If you can’t help but take a hot shower, then consider blasting your hair with the coldest water you can stand at the end to seal the cuticles back up. Otherwise, try turning down the temperature of the water in general when washing your hair and you may see the shine in your hair get restored.

Be Gentle When Drying Hair

Using an abrasive bath towel against your hair can be too rough on the cuticles, especially when it is very wet. The first step when getting out of the shower should be to squeeze out as much water as you can so it is damp rather than soaked. Then pat it dry gently with a microfiber cloth or even a cotton shirt to prevent breakage to your hair strands. Applying leave-in conditioner immediately afterward will help protect it as well.

sulfate free shampoo and conditionerRemove Tangles Before Showering

Brushing through tangles in wet hair is a sure way to experience breakage and damage. You can significantly reduce the risk of damaging your hair by brushing gently through the tangles before getting in the shower. Then wash with your sulfate free shampoo and conditioner and your hair will be much easier to work with and maintain its shine when it’s time to style.

At RemySoft, we believe if caring for your hair seems to be too hard, it could be because you’re making it too hard. We all want our hair to look perfect, but sometimes the simplest techniques and adjustments create the best results. Overthinking your hair care routine is common, and we are here to help. Feel free to contact us at any time for other tips and ideas like these.

Valentine’s Day is always a day where you want to go above and beyond to show your love for your significant other. Selecting the perfect hairstyle is typically the toughest decision, so we’ve helped you out with some inspiring styles that may not force you to alter your quality hair care routine significantly.

Low Bun

It’s amazing how a hairstyle as simple as a low bun can be made to be more glamorous with a few tweaks. Start by smoothing your hair as much as possible with a brush and then tease it slightly at the crown to maximize the volume of your hair. Secure the low bun and take a couple of sections of your straight hair to frame your face. It’s a stunning look that’s quicker to pull off than you’d think.

Loose, Voluminous Curls

If you need a hairstyle that will look great in the morning and last all day through your Valentine’s Day evening, then look no further than this one. Apply some leave-in conditioner the night before after washing with your sulfate free shampoo. Make your curls as big and loose as you can and apply quality hair care products to maximize the hold for the best results.

For people with long hair past the shoulders, beachy waves can be a great attribute of your hairstyle. And even if you don’t have long locks, you can add shiny hair extensions and pull off the look. Simply curl your hair and then loosen the curls into the waves you desire. It’s an effortless look that also provides a certain amount of glamour that will be noticeable by anyone.

Silky, Shiny and Smooth Side Part

A simple and classy hairstyle for any Valentine’s Day date is the silky, shiny and smooth side part. The key to this hairstyle isn’t as much in the quality hair care routine, but rather, the hair products you use. Wash with sulfate free shampoo and apply a leave-in conditioner to provide a natural shine. Then simply part your hair to one side, brush it gently to make it as smooth as possible and apply your favorite products to maximize the shine.

RemySoft is here to help take some stress out of your Valentine’s Day plans. Your hairstyle might be a big part of your evening, but it doesn’t have to take all day to create the perfect look.

4 Trendy Haircuts for Men in 2020

Nothing looks and feels better than a fresh haircut. If you’ve been looking for a different haircut to start your New Year and rock for the remainder of the year, we’ve got some trendy styles to consider. Whether you have long hair, short hair, naturally straight or wavy hair, there’s certainly a style you can find that works well for you. Often times simple adjustments like switching to a great sulfate free shampoo or a leave-in conditioner can make a world of difference as well. Here are some of the top trendy haircuts for men we expect to see in 2020.

Natural and Messy Texture

Hairstyling with texture has been big in recent years, but having every strand of hair in place was also important. This year, the natural and messy textured hairstyles will be popular for many reasons. One is because it’s easy to do and you don’t need a lot of quality hair care products to achieve it. Another reason is because it doesn’t have to be precise and perfect to look great. Simply run your fingers through your hair for a tousled look and add some hair products to maintain the messy finish.

great sulfate free shampooFrench Crop

The French crop is just a fancy term for a cropped fade or a textured crop. The combination of textured hair, a fade, fringe, shaved lines and even color makes this a trendy hairstyle selection this year. The French crop is versatile, so you can try it out whether you have long hair, short hair, wavy or curly hair and thick or thin hair. For men with thin hair, adding a little texture and fades gives it a thicker appearance.

Creative Necklines

Do you like the idea of changing up your appearance, but don’t necessarily want to change your hair drastically? Changing the way your neckline looks is a good compromise. Consider having your stylist make a straight cut, a v-shape, faded, half-straight or any other pattern you desire. You don’t have to change your quality hair care routine at all and the changes are so subtle that you may even forget you made the change.

New Twists To Classic Haircuts

Classic men’s hairstyles like slicked back hair, wavy side parts and high fades never truly go out of style. However, consider changing yours up this year by adding some texture or even parting your hair the opposite way of what you’re used to. Be creative with how you style this year and you may be the person who begins a new trend.

At RemySoft, we believe every perfect hairstyle starts with a great sulfate free shampoo. Having healthy hair is where good hairstyles begin, so consider switching out some of your products to ensure you’re using the best ones for your hair. Talk to your hairstylist about the best products available for your hair and what styles you could consider this year. And as always, contact us if you have any questions or need some hair care advice.

How to Sport a Military-Inspired Hairstyle this Veterans Day

Sporting a military-inspired hairstyle isn’t difficult to do, but it may take a little creativity. If you want to go with an authentic military hairstyle, getting a haircut likely needs to happen whether you’re a man or a woman. However, with the right hair products for Remy hair and some hair tools, you can make your hair hold exactly how you want it to. Whether you’re looking to rock a military-inspired hairstyle just for Veterans Day or if you want to honor our military for an entire week, here are a few tips to help you out.

Military Hairstyles For Long Hair

Women with long hair usually have to tie it up or style it in a way where it’s not hanging down very low. This generally means putting the hair in a bun, braid or even a ponytail. If you don’t want to cut your long hair, consider going with a hairstyle suited for women in the army. These women have some extra flexibility since one restriction is their hair can’t fall beneath the collar but they can wear hair extensions as long as they look natural. The hair products for Remy hair you have in your collection currently should be sufficient for creating a military hairstyle with your long hair.

Short-Haired Military Hairstyles

Women in the army with short hair don’t have to worry about as many restrictions or guidelines. The hair simply has to be longer than ¼” around the scalp. Sailor haircuts are common and if your hair is long enough to put it into a small ponytail, you can do so as well. Short hair can dry out quicker than long hair, so be sure to use hydrating shampoo regularly. Otherwise, you could damage your hair when you try to style it too much.

hair products for remy hairMens Military Hairstyles To Consider

Men have many different options with military-inspired hairstyles. The easiest way is to get a complete buzz cut and you won’t have to worry about styling it at all until the hair grows back out. But some haircuts can change things up a bit, like a long fade, high and tight fade, a crew cut, shaved sides and more. Most military hairstyles for men don’t require many hair products for Remy hair since the hair is so short, but still be sure to use a hydrating shampoo and leave in conditioner to protect the roots.

RemySoft appreciates our past, current and future members of the military and supports them in many ways. People always come to us asking how they can pull off a military-inspired hairstyle to honor our troops and we have plenty of options to provide them. This Veterans Day, change up your hairstyle a bit to show your support and contact us if you have any questions or need tips on how to do it.

Rocking an Asymmetrical Bob Isn’t as Hard as You Think

There are plenty of great reasons to consider getting a bob haircut. And if you’ve worn a bob for a while and are looking for a change, you don’t necessarily have to cut it shorter or let it grow out longer to make a big difference. One of the haircut trends today is getting an asymmetrical bob haircut. By angling the cut ever-so-slightly, you’ll create a seamless transition from one side to the other since the angle is so gradual. You have many different ways to rock your asymmetrical bob and here are some quality hair care tips to help you pull it off.

If you want to make a bold statement with your new hairstyle, then consider adding highlights or dye your hair completely. You don’t have to go with a drastic color change to make a statement and a new color is easier to embrace when it’s paired with a fresh haircut. Just remember to use hair products for Remy hair that will protect and preserve the color so you can rock the look for weeks to come.

Incorporate A Deep Side Part

You can emphasize the longer side of your hair by incorporating a deep side part. Allow some of your strands to hang in your face if you’d like or simply part it all and use hair products for Remy hair to keep it in place. Deep side parts may not look as good with a traditional bob haircut, so you have the advantage of being able to wear this hairstyle with an asymmetrical bob cut.

Pull One Side Behind Your Ears

Some hairstylists will make the angled bob haircut so subtle that it’s hardly noticeable. One of the easiest ways to draw attention to the difference in length is to tuck one side behind your ears. It’s amazing how such a simple trick makes a significant difference in the appearance of a hairstyle, and the best part about it is you don’t have to invest in a lot of quality hair care products to achieve it.

Bangs Make A Huge Difference

Most people have a love-hate relationship with bangs. Whether you’ve been able to pull off bangs successfully in the past or not, it’s worth another try if you get an asymmetrical bob haircut. The combination of the angled cut with the straight bangs frames the face in ways that are hard to describe. It may look a little untraditional, but you could also start a new trend at the same time.

RemySoft is here to answer all of your quality hair care questions so you can rock the look you envision. Sometimes changing to a sulfate free shampoo or using a leave-in conditioner is what you need, while other times getting a whole new haircut may be required to suit your desires.

Short, Curly Hairstyles You Don’t Want to Miss

People with short and curly hair either love it or hate it. No matter how much you try to straighten your hair, there will always be some curl to it, so sometimes it’s best to just embrace your locks and make the most of them. You may think your hairstyle options are limited, but with the right hair products for Remy hair and a little inspiration, you can create hairstyles that are suitable for the red carpet. Here are a few of our favorite short and curly hairstyles for you to try.

The Blunt Bob

The blunt bob is a popular hairstyle for people with straight hair, but it doesn’t mean curly-haired people can’t pull it off too. The ideal length for this hairstyle is above the shoulders, right around the chin. And if you want to take it to the next level, grow out some bangs to go with it. Framing your face is the most challenging part of this hairstyle, but there are plenty of hair products for Remy hair to help you get every strand in the perfect position.

Curls With Highlights

There may not be a more unique hairstyle for short curly-haired people than having curls with highlights. If you have dark brown hair, consider going with blonde or caramel highlights. If you have lighter-colored hair, you could opt for darker highlights. The idea behind this hairstyle is to keep your natural hair color intact and have your hairstylist highlight just the right amount of curls to add some style. 

Chopped and Feathered

The chopped and feathered hairstyle is great if you want to wear your curls a little looser than normal. Start with using hydrating shampoo and leave-in conditioner so your hair is simple to work with. The perfect length for this hairstyle is between the chin and the shoulders. You can even incorporate some bangs to help frame your face and highlight your best features.

leave-in conditionerTightly Coiled Rings

Maybe one of the most traditional hairstyles for people with short and curly hair is coiling the curls as tightly as possible. Before doing this, be sure to use hydrating shampoo for several weeks beforehand to ensure you don’t damage your hair when styling it. Your hair can be as long or as short as you’d like for this hairstyle, with the main idea being coiling the strands as tightly as possible.

At RemySoft, we believe creativity is an important element of every hairstyle. Just because you have curly hair that may not be the easiest to work with doesn’t mean you are limited to just one or two hairstyles. Sometimes it’s simply a matter of changing your hair products for Remy hair, while other times you may need to use an alternate styling technique. Regardless, feel free to contact us at any time when you need some inspiration.

Make Your Hair the Focal Point on Your Halloween Costume

Many Halloween costumes don’t cover up the head, which means you have to find something to do with your hair. This year, instead of making your hair just a part of your costume, make it the focal point. You have an abundance of options to get creative with, especially if you add in some hair extensions to give you more length to work with. Whether it’s simply tying your hair up in a bun and making it look like a pumpkin, creating some Medusa-inspired curls or even creating a full lion’s mane, you have the chance to truly showcase your hair this Halloween. Here are some ideas for making your hair the focal point of your costume.

Colorful Unicorns and Mermaids

Mythical creatures like unicorns and mermaids are popular Halloween costumes. Instead of buying a costume of one of them, create your own and start with your hair. With a little bit of pastel hair paint, some waves, curls and braids, you’ll create a magical hairstyle that won’t cause any damage to your hair. Using hair extensions is ideal for this costume so you have more length and volume to work with. You’ll be sure to impress at any Halloween party.

Pumpkin Buns

The pumpkin bun will be a trendy Halloween costume this year. If you have straight hair, simply pull your hair up into a tight bun on the top of your head.

Incorporate accessories like gold-painted snakes, flowers and other gold accessories to complete your Medusa look.

For people with naturally curly hair, the easy choice for Halloween costumes is a lion’s mane. This looks best if you have tightly-wound curls, but even loose curls would get the job done.

Then all you need to add are lion ears and face paint and you’ll be ready to go.
