3 Quick Fire Wavy Hair Questions

Q: Why should you style your hair upside down?

1. Volume: Flipping your head upside down and scrunching your hair adds volume to the roots of your hair.


2. Definition: Scrunching your hair while upside down can help to define and enhance your natural waves. The motion of scrunching can help to separate and shape the waves, giving them more definition and texture.


3. Root lift: When styling your hair upside down, gravity is working against the usual direction of styling. That provides the root lift which is crucial in giving your hair that full voluminous look.


4. Frizz control: When you style your hair while it's upside down, the cuticles on the hair shaft lay flat and smooth, which can help to reduce frizz and flyaways.


5. Better dry: Diffusing hair upside down can help to dry hair faster and more evenly, which is especially helpful for wavy hair that tends to take longer to dry.

Q: HOW DOES HEAT DAMAGE OUR HAIR?

1. Dryness: Heat can dry out your hair, stripping it of its natural oils and leaving it brittle and prone to breakage. This is especially true if you use heated styling tools, such as hair straighteners or curling irons, on a regular basis.


2. Fading of colour: Heat can also cause colour-treated hair to fade more quickly, especially if you use heated styling tools on a regular basis. The heat can cause the pigments in your hair dye to break down, resulting in a duller and less vibrant colour.


3. Protein loss: When you expose your hair to high heat, it causes the proteins in your hair to break down. This can make your hair weak, prone to breakage and can lead to split ends.


4. Dehydration: Heat can dehydrate hair by removing the moisture from your hair. This can lead to dry, dull and frizzy hair which can be difficult to manage.


5. Over styling: Regular use of heat styling tools can cause your hair to become over styled, which can lead to damage. Over styling can cause your hair to lose its natural body and shape, leaving it looking lifeless and flat.

Q: WHY DO YOU NEED TO APPLY STYLING PRODUCTS TO WET HAIR?

1. Improved distribution: When hair is wet, it is more pliable and easier to work with, making it easier to evenly distribute styling products through the hair. This can help to ensure that the product is applied consistently, resulting in a more even and polished final look.


2. Better hold: Styling products can provide a better hold when applied to wet hair. The water in the hair can help to activate the ingredients in the styling product, allowing it to set and provide a stronger hold for the final style.


3. Increased volume: Applying styling products to wet hair can help to add volume to the hair. This is because the water in the hair can help to expand the hair shaft, making it appear thicker and fuller.
