When do you know you need a haircut?

haircut


Cailee Anderson, a master hairstylist at Calm Spa and Salon in Pleasant Grove, answers this question in detail below.


The beautiful thing about hair is there are so many styles and different ways to wear your hair. In this post, I’ll be going more in depth about how often you need a haircut and when you know that you need one.
There are so many factors that go into maintaining a hair cut. First, if you color treat your hair, the hair is taking on more chemical and thermal damage than natural hair so I always recommend 6-8 weeks in between cuts. If your hair is natural and you use less to medium thermal heat on it, I recommend 3-4 months.


Something to consider is if you are trying to maintain a certain hairstyle, know it will be more of an upkeep. Every hair cut differs and the time in between can range.


There are multiple products that help strengthen and prevent breakage so that you are able to maintain a healthy look. Kerastase thermiques are leave in moisturizers that protect the hair up the 450 degrees and add moisture and protein to the hair. If you are wanting to grow your hair longer and stronger, I recommend our Kerastase Initialiste, which is our advanced scalp concentrate that maximizes the potential length of your hair.


Some things to pay attention to when you’re curious if you’re ready for a hair cut is: 

-I like to comb all my hair straight back and look to see if there is a change of density as it gets closer to the ends.

-Another way is to look closely at the ends of your hair and if you noticed little white beads on the hair, those are the beginnings of split ends. If you notice either of these, it’s time for a haircut! 


 At the end of the day, if healthy, full hair is what is desired than don’t be afraid of a good haircut and as always good product!

How to avoid “MASKNE” this fall

Skin care for face mask problems
Are you suffering from MASKNE? Yah, we are too and we aren’t loving the breaouts we’re seeing caused by long hours of wearing masks.
Here are a few tips to clear up those breakouts under that mask:
 
1. Double Cleanse
We recommend starting with an oil cleanser like 
Eminence’s Stone Crop Cleansing Oil to loosen all makeup and grime. You then can follow with your favorite Eminence cleanser that suits your skin type.
 
2. Masque after you mask
Keep flare-ups to a minimal using Eminence’s Clear Skin Probiotic Masque. Ingredients like cucumber and shea butter will calm irritated skin, while lactic acid from yogurt prevents breakouts.
 
3. Exfoliate
Exfoliating regularly is more important than ever as masks trap dead skin cells, dirt and debris. Eminence’s  Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant removes impurities while adzuki powder exfoliates leaving skin glowing!
 
4. Use a spot treatment as needed
Sometimes you can still end up with a pimple or two. Eminence’s Clear Skin Target spot treatment will help heal quicker and help fade dark spots. Spot treat anytime of day!

CHARCOAL – SKIN BENEFITS

CHARCOAL has SO many benefits for the skin and has been around for ages! More recently, charcoal has made it’s way back around and has been the talk lately! From charcoal toothpaste to charcoal masques, it seems to be the BIG craze! As Master Estheticians at Calm Spa and Salon in Pleasant Grove, Utah, we have a few favorite charcoal products we use from Eminence Organic Skin Care. 

 Let’s talk about a few benefits charcoal has on the skin and why everyone is going crazy about it! When Charcoal and Kaolin clay are mixed together it detoxifies the skin, drawing out oil, dirt and bacteria that cause excess sebum making it incredible for congested, oily and combination skin types. When using charcoal based products, your pores will appear refined and minimized. The look of sebum on the skin is reduced. Skin surface appears clarified and less irritated. The skin will be hydrated and nourished. Skin looks soft and noticeably smoother. 


One of our very favorite masques from Eminence Organics is the CHARCOAL T-ZONE PURIFIER MASQUE. We love it for it’s deep cleaning and pore refining benefits for combination and oily skin types. This is a great one for problem skin types. 
A few ingredients in this masque and ingredients we encourage all oily t zone skin types to use are: 
Buchu Leaf Extract: mattifies the skin.    Kaolin Clay: draws out impurities without stripping the skin. Charcoal: draws out oil, dirt and bacteria.Willow Bark: anti-inflammatory. Tea Tree Oil: soothing anti-inflammatory. Salicylic Acid: evens complexion and smooths. Eucalyptus Oil: anti-fungal and antibacterial.

If you are wanting to reduce the appearance of large pores, oily t zone and breakouts we suggest scheduling a Targeted Facial at Calm Spa and Salon in Pleasant Grove, Utah and letting one of our Master Estheticians help you achieve your skin care goals and help with your at home skin care routine.

EXFOLIATION

Let’s talk about exfoliation of the skin. Did you know there are two types of exfoliants? Physical exfoliants and chemical exfoliants. As we age our cell turn over rate slows down drastically making our skin not feel and look smooth. In turn, we should be exfoliating 2 to 3 times a week to help slough off dead skin. Physical exfoliants are very popular for at home use. Chemical exfoliants are usually done by a professional in a spa setting. Here at Calm Spa and Salon, we offer several professional chemical and physical exfoliation treatments. For at home use, we recommend Eminence Organics Pear and Poppy Seed Microderm Polisher. It’s an aggressive physical exfoliant. The ground up walnut and poppy seeds polish the skin giving a smooth texture and the apricot oil leaves a glow you cant resist.  This is a great one for all you with oily skin! It is our Product of the Month giving you 20% off all January 2019. ($10 savings.)
