DAMAGED HAIR?


Type 1
CUTICLE DAMAGE:

Much of the shine that makes healthy hair so attractive is due to the cuticle. Intact cuticle cells are smooth and glossy, and reflect light from their surfaces. The first level of damage the hair can sustain is to the cuticle. This is when the cuticle layer starts to become open and abraded. Cuticle damage causes the hair to tangle.

CAUSE:
Cuticular damage is caused by the use of inferior hair products, styling tools, poor styling techniques, heat styling, sun, wind, and chemical services.

IDENTIFICATION:
When the cuticle is closed and flat it reflects more light, making the hair shiny. Where more cuticle damage exists the hair is dull or of a less shiny appearance. Take a small section of hair and starting at the scalp run your fingers down the section; an open cuticle will feel rough to the touch.



Type 2
MOISTURE LOSS

Healthy hair has a natural ability to hold onto free radical moisture molecules even when it appears completely dry. Water is a heavy molecule adding weight to the hair.

CAUSE:
Cuticular damage left undiagnosed and untreated. Once the cuticle on the hair has been open and abraded for long enough the hair will start to lose moisture.

IDENTIFICATION:
When the hair loses its natural moisture content it also loses weight. Hair demonstrating moisture loss will have cuticle damage and will have a light fly away or “static” appearance.


Type 3
PROTEIN LOSS

Proteins such as natural essential fatty acids, lipids, and most other nutrients are the elements that give the hair its shine, flexibility, and strength.

CAUSE:
When the hair has sustained enough cuticle damage, and has lost its moisture content, it will then start to lose protein.

IDENTIFICATION:
Hair color and protein have very similar structures. If hair has sustained a pigment change for any reason (sun bleaching, chemical service, etc.) they have also probably experienced protein loss. The hair will be dull and dry in appearance, light and fly away, and will feel rough and abraded.


Type 4

ELASTICITY LOSS:
Loss of elasticity is the result of the hair losing so much moisture and protein that it loses its tensile strength. The hair becomes weak, dry and brittle, losing its natural ability to stretch and retract. This is when split ends and breakage occur. With the proper treatment we can repair any level of damage.

CAUSE:
The loss of tensile strength is caused by intense exposure to sun, wind, water, heat, chemical treatments, poor quality shampoo, conditioner, styling aids and tools. With loss of tensile strength comes loss of elasticity.

IDENTIFICATION:
When the hair has experienced the loss of tensile strength it tends to be dull, lifeless, and appears to have fly aways. At this level of damage hair has lost its natural ability to stretch and retract.

Your color clients all have one giant thing in common—
after a major haircolor shift, they always ask the same question,

 “How do I get my color to last longer?”
 And you always tell them that blow-drying on high heat, hot water, chlorine and thermal styling tools are destroying their beautiful color (and all your hard work!).


Guy Tang knows this all too well, so in his newest YouTube video, he and fellow stylist Nora Ali Ahmad set out to help educate your color clients on just how important it is to turn their irons down so that their color stays brighter, longer.
