For Damaged Hair
Damaged hair is the most common problem we find when new clients come to Salon Buzz. We believe in beautiful, healthy hair, but it is not easy to achieve. Here are some tips that would help you keep your locks in the best condition possible.
- Protect your hair: Pool, sun, and sauna all put stress on your hair. Use the Kerastase Soleil line to protect from pool chemicals and sun damage.
- Strengthen the hair strand. Concentre Vita-Ciment, Vita Top Seal, Age Recharge, and VolumorphoseConcentre Vita-Ciment, applied directly between highlighting and glazing the hair. The treatment prepares the canvas for the color glazing imparting strength, shine and longer lasting hair color. treatments will give you instant gratification. One of my personal favorites is

Flat Iron Myths and Facts
Flat iron’s made of pure ceramic are just another gimmick to spend more on an expensive hair tool and they break easily.
The benefits of pure ceramic are real: expect far more even & diffuse heating, smooth handling, and no fear of ceramic peeling or chipping away over a lifetime of use. But be warned – never clap the plates together and handle the iron gently.
When looking for a flat iron, choose the one that gets the hottest.
Never begin with the highest heat setting on your flat iron. It may be true that curly, thick or ethnic hair requires high heat to retain a style, but work up from a lower setting and stop when results are good. Most people will never need a temperature above 400°F to see professional results. If your hair is fine, damaged or chemically treated, work up from as low as possible and resist exceeding 300°F.
Why do I need a professional Blow Dryer?
When it comes to styling your hair, having the right tools can make the difference between loving your good hair days and wanting to wear a hat whenever you leave the house. To make styling your hair easier and more rewarding, you should have the best hair dryer for you. Things to consider
- Wattage is important. The higher the wattage, the more powerful the heat and air flow will be. Make sure your dryer’s wattage is at least 1900 watts.
- Use a dryer with ceramic and tourmaline technology. A hair dryer with a ceramic heater gives off stronger and more even heat to help straighten your hair while the tourmaline (negative ion emitting crystals) promotes smooth and shiny hair.
- Diffuser and nozzle attachments are necessary for different looks
- Variable speeds and heat controls should be available
- A dryer’s weight matters, especially for those with long hair. Your wrist and arm will get tired half way through your style if you are using a heavy blow dryer.
- If you have a hairstyle that relies on flips or is tricky to set, you need a dryer with a cool shot button.
