Is It Really Worth It to Wash Your Hair Daily?

RemySoft best sulfate free shampooIt may seem natural to wash your hair every night after a long day. However, are there any real advantages to washing your hair that often? It’s hard to give a definite answer since everyone has different hair types. Most people will agree to use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to maintain healthy hair, but the frequency of the washing still comes into question. There are several different factors to consider when deciding how often to wash your hair, and many of those factors come down to personal preference.

Think About Your Desired Hairstyle

It’s widely known that slightly oily hair is easier to style than perfectly clean and washed hair. Hair with a little moisture is easier to work with, so that is one benefit to not washing your hair every day. Some people may be able to go several days or even up to a week without washing their hair, depending on the types of natural oils it produces. Adding some leave in conditioner will help you go even longer without washing.

Too Much Shampoo Can Remove Natural Oils

Natural oils are essential to having healthy hair. However, too much or too little oil isn’t always a good thing. When you wash your hair daily, you aren’t giving it time to replenish the natural oils. As a result, you’ll be working with dry and brittle hair with split ends.

We recommend washing your hair every 2-3 days with the best sulfate free shampoo you can find. You can increase or decrease the frequency of your hair washing after you see how it reacts. By washing your hair every other day at most, you’ll give it time to replenish the natural oils it needs to stay healthy.

Shampoo Causes Hair Color to Fade Quicker

If you have highlights or color in your hair, shampooing every day will make the color fade away more quickly. Even the best sulfate free shampoo and conditioner will eventually fade out your locks when you wash it every day. The best way you can preserve your desired color as long as possible is to reduce the frequency of your hair washing.

Who Needs to Wash Their Hair Daily?

People who have very oily hair should wash their hair daily with the best sulfate free shampoo no matter what. Also, if you sweat a lot during the day or are outside during humid times of the year, you may consider washing your hair every day.

There’s a fine line between washing your hair frequently for health reasons and washing it less frequently for styling purposes. At Remysoft, we are here to help you find the perfect balance so you can have healthy hair that looks exactly how you want it to. Feel free to contact us at any time for the perfect products to make your locks look stunning.

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.

Our Tips for Taming Your Frizzy Hair

Sometimes the weather can contribute to overly frizzy hair, but some people just have naturally frizzy hair that’s hard to tame. If you can relate, we understand what you’re going through! A lack of moisture in your hair can be a big reason why it’s frizzy all the time. Humid weather also plays a big role because your hair is trying to absorb all the moisture. Here are some of our best tips to help you control your frizzy hair.

1. Use the Right Shampoo

A good sulfate free shampoo and conditioner may be all you need to calm down your frizz. This type of shampoo will help hydrate your hair from the inside out and will provide a coating on the hair to keep the moisture in. You can’t go wrong when you choose sulfate free!

2. Condition More Than Shampoo

Washing your hair too much can lead to it drying out more often. Even if you use a quality hydrating shampoo, you could be causing more harm than good by washing too much. Find a good leave in conditioner instead, which will help keep your hair moisturized and clean even without frequent washing.

3. Air Dry Instead of Blow Dry

Your blow dryer is extremely convenient when you get out of the shower, but it also dehydrates your hair significantly. To prevent frizzy hair in the morning, allow your hair to air dry and use a blow dryer on a low setting just to finish it off. Letting your hair air dry most of the way will keep your hair strands smooth and straight.

RemySoft hydrating shampoo4. For Emergencies, Use a Little Water

Sometimes a hydrating shampoo won’t even do the trick on humid days. For a temporary fix, spray a little water in your hair to tame the frizz. Of course, you can’t walk around with a spray bottle all day, but you can put a little on it every time you go to the bathroom.

Having frizzy hair can be frustrating, especially when it seems like there’s nothing you can do about it. If you haven’t already, be sure to invest in a good sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to see how it helps. For other tips and recommendations, feel free to contact us at any time.

Guys, Here’s How to Rock That Grey

The days of trying to hide grey hair are long gone. In fact, younger people who don’t have naturally grey hair are beginning to find grey dyes in order to rock the color. Grey hair shows a lot about your personality and style, so it’s definitely nothing to be ashamed of. Instead of hiding it, embrace it and find some quality hair care products to make it look even more stylish. Here are some tips on how you can rock your grey hair, whether it’s naturally grey or dyed.

Embrace the Grey

If your hair is turning grey naturally, it’s time to embrace it. The sooner you come to terms with your hair being grey, the sooner you’ll be able to accept it as being part of your life and roll with it. There are plenty of different hairstyles you can choose to highlight your grey hair, but most of them start with a good hydrating shampoo. The more you try to hide your grey hair, the more your hairstyle will look unnatural. Embrace the grey and create a natural hairstyle to make you feel more confident and stylish.

RemySoft hydrating shampooKeep Up With Maintenance

People who opt to go with the grey look by dyeing their hair have to understand the maintenance involved. Sometimes even a good leave in conditioner isn’t enough to keep grey-dyed hair looking good. If you choose to go grey before the natural grey comes out, you have to stick with it. Expect to spend a good chunk of money going to the barbershop and buying quality hair care products to help with the maintenance of your hair.

Grey Hair Looks Old, But Don’t Act Old

No matter if your hair is naturally grey or if you dye it grey, it doesn’t mean you are old. The best way to rock your grey is to do some things that suggest you aren’t as old as you look (within reason, of course). Grey hair is still generally associated with older people, so you will seem a lot younger than you actually are simply by not acting old.

Once you’ve decided you want to roll with your grey hair without hiding it, be sure to contact us. We will help you get on the right track with your quality hair care products and help you embrace your hair color.

With the New Year finally upon us, you may be wondering how you are going to change in 2017. Instead of making some outlandish resolutions, why not keep it simple and just reinvent your hairstyle? Not only will a new hairstyle create a “new you” in terms of appearance, but it also won’t cost you a ton of money.

With some quality hair care practices, you can achieve this popular hairstyle to create a “new you.”

mens-fringe (2)Embracing the Long Hairstyle

The first step in feeling confident about your hair is to embrace the change. You may have had a shorter hairstyle for a long time, but long hair isn’t hard to get used to when styled properly.

When you go to your barber, they will trim your hair short on the back of your head and the sides with a fade on top for the longer hair. An uneven cut on top will create somewhat of a wavy appearance that looks natural and textured. With the proper quality hair care products, you can achieve a messy look with ease.

Texture is the Key

Volume is important when having a hairstyle with longer hair. Using a good hydrating shampoo will go a long way in achieving the texture you desire. Your barber will cut your hair in a way to make it look textured, but from that point it’s up to you to maintain the look. The naturally long and messy fringe takes some work to look great every day, so don’t neglect your quality hair care practices.

Use the Right Products

Everyone’s hair is different, so using the proper hair care products will help you achieve the daily hairstyle you desire. Many men opt for leave in conditioner, while others only use a hydrating shampoo. You may have to experiment with different products to see how your hair reacts differently.

With one of the main 2017 hairstyle trends for men being the natural look, it may be time to throw away your products that make you hair look greasy and slick. Lightweight products are becoming more popular, since they add texture to your hair without weighing it down.

For more information on what products are right for you to achieve the long, natural hairstyle, be sure to contact us.

Could These Bad Habits Be Damaging Your Hair?

Even we have to admit quality hair care can be a frustrating endeavor. Sometimes it seems like no matter what you do, your hair just refuses to thrive the way you want it to. It may decide it wants to remain dull and limp or just refuse to grow. When this happens, it’s all too understandable you may reach your wit’s end and have no idea where you’re going wrong. Unfortunately, there are all sorts of habits and factors out there that could be affecting your hair’s health without you even realizing. Here are just a few to watch out for.


It’s somewhat well known specific medications can cause detriment to your hair. This can include the likes of thyroid pills, statins, blood pressure drugs and antidepressants. The reason for this lies in how these drugs actually work, which is through fiddling around with your hormonal chemistry. Much like your mood, your hair is also affected by your hormones. If they’re thrown out of whack in any way, you could likely see some ill effects with your hair.

Should you start a new medication and find your hair thinning or just refusing to grow, it’s best to speak with your doctor as soon as possible. Together you can find a new medication that won’t affect your hormonal balance quite as much, kickstarting your hair back into its usual growth routine.

Be sure you choose quality hair care products.

Quality hair care can protect your hair.

Hot Showers

What could be better than a long, hot shower after a hard day? It’s a highlight for many people because it grants them the chance to relax and wash away their stress along with the grime gathered from a long day’s work. You often even take advantage of this time to use your trusty sulfate free shampoo and conditioner! There’s just one problem with a hot shower: heat is dehydrating.

By standing under that steamy water, you’re effectively stripping away all of the natural moisturization your hair builds up on a regular basis. This can lead to dryness, which in turn causes breakage and other problems. Luckily, you don’t have to go all the way to the opposite end of the showering spectrum to fix this problem! Try to use colder water when you rinse your hair only, and stick to showers that aren’t quite as hot for regular bathing.

Styling Serums

We all love our styling sprays! However, it’s important to remember it’s a product, and like any hair product, there’s a certain risk of clogging your follicles or worse. In some cases, the ingredients present in your styling product of choice can dehydrate your hair. This holds especially true for styling gels designed to last all day long. Try gentler products for styling your hair instead. Also, don’t hesitate to use your leave in conditioner because it will help your hair retain the moisture it generates and needs, making it naturally easier to style!

Is Your Hair Thinning? We Guarantee These Myths Aren’t the Reason Why!

For many, autumn signifies one thing alone: the seemingly inevitable loss of hair, dwindling from your scalp with the simplest nightly brushing. It’s lamentable at best. For others, it causes a great deal of stress. If the weather isn’t directly related, you may be at your wit’s end wondering what could be causing your scalp to thin so much. Sometimes even the best sulfate free shampoo can’t help! While there are all sorts of answers to this question, not all of them should be believed. Here is our list of some of the worst hair loss myths, as well as the truth about them.

Your Daily Trek to Work Could Be Affecting Your Hairline

This myth comes from the belief stress has major negative effects on your scalp and hair health. However, while commuting and the inevitable traffic jams are certainly stressful, they aren’t quite enough to cause you to lose hair. You have to be going through much worse trauma for your hair to reach that point. Actual causes of stress-related hair loss can include sudden and intense dieting, childbirth and severe illness.

Too Much Hair Dye Causes Hair Loss

The best sulfate free shampoo may not be able to help.

Sometimes even the best sulfate free shampoo can’t help.

The reasoning for this myth may lie in all the chemicals you have to use to render your hair the perfect shade, whatever that may be for you. However, with the help of some of the best sulfate free shampoo, your strands will be pretty safe! It isn’t simply dyeing your hair that can cause it to fall out. Rather, it’s the quality of your hair care that ultimately affects your hair health. Experts prove it isn’t the type of products you use on your hair, but their frequency of use. Whether you’re fond of braiding, straightening or a favorite brand of dye, you likely know and understand the toll this can take on your hair. If you take the proper steps to keep your hair strong to make up for chemical and heat exposure, you won’t have to worry.

The State of Your Maternal Grandfather’s Hairline Determines the Fate of Your Own

In other words, many believe hair loss is entirely genetic. Science once again debunks this myth by proving baldness depends on a little more than a specific line of genetics. Rather, it’s a whole host of genetic jumbling and other factors that can lead to your hair falling out. If you have several family members who’ve lost hair during their lives, there’s a good chance it’ll happen down the line for you. However, if it was only your grandpa, there’s no need to fret. Keep using your trusty bottle of leave in conditioner and you’ll be fine!

These are only a few of the myths surrounding hair loss. Many more float around on the Internet and other means so you’ll have to learn how to distinguish truth from fiction. If hair loss currently plagues you, we suggest you consider looking into full cap partial cap hair replacement to give your hairline a helping hand.

All About Highlights: A Beginner’s Guide

Hair color treatments have always been a popular style choice, but it seems they’ve never been as hot as they are this decade. Now anyone who wants to color their hair has all sorts of options to choose from—naturals, unnaturals, ombre, balayage, bronde, babylights, lowlights and the ever classic highlights, to name a few. Highlighting can be a gateway into the wonderful world of hair dye, serving as a subtler option for those who don’t want to commit their entire head to one color, or just want to add a bit of depth to their natural hair color. No matter which end of the spectrum you’re on, we’ve put together a quick guide on how highlights work and how to pick the best color and style for yourself!

Do Your Research

If you’re as invested in trends as we are, you’ve done your research and know exactly which highlighting methods are considered in this year. However, even the most stylish person can struggle to keep up with the constantly fluctuating ideas of what’s hot and what’s not. We recommend looking up current hair dyeing trends before making any major decisions about your highlights. The style and coloring you choose may majorly affect your quality hair care routine in one way or another. You may want to choose carefully depending on your lifestyle and how much time you have to devote to your hair care throughout each day.

How Will I Know What Works for Me?

RemySoft sulfate free shampoo and conditionerUltimately, this decision is up to you! The most important factors worth considering for anyone getting highlighting work done is their current hair color, hair length and own aesthetic preferences. The beauty of blonde highlights combined with brown hair is common knowledge, but they won’t look good on you if you personally don’t like that particular style! If you aren’t sure what you want, have no preference or simply want something that will look good unconditionally, here are a few tidbits to help with your decision:

  • Ombre and balayage are still as popular as ever, and work best for those looking for something subtle and natural.
  • Lowlights are even subtler and meant to blend in with your hair’s natural coloring to create more depth and body. Consider it a reverse of the typical ombre style, going from light to dark.
  • Standard foil highlighting is great for those looking for a certain amount of control when it comes to coloring placement. You or your stylist can use foil in sections of your hair to determine the exact spots you want your highlighting to go.
  • You don’t have to go subtle! You can also opt for bigger, blockier highlights to help brighten your hair.

What About Hair Care?

No one wants to or intends to run to the salon for a new ‘do without first knowing how to take care of the aftermath! First off, know the dyeing process damages hair, no matter the condition of it beforehand. That’s just the way chemicals work. However, you can soothe some of the damage by putting together an excellent wash routine with sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. One of the most common types of damage to dyed hair is dryness. A high quality leave in conditioner will help restore some of your hair’s moisture, improving its health and making its newly added color last longer.

These aren’t the only things you should know about highlighting and quality hair care in general! If you have any questions or simply want more information on how to go about coloring your hair, get in touch with us!
