Invest in your hair. It is the crown you never take off.” I saw this sign in a Beauty Salon window. To this day, I have not forgotten those words. I always make an effort to take care of my hair by using healthy hair products and having hair treatments. When friends tell me I have a nice haircut, I feel like I can rule the world. I have been going to Regine’s Beauty Salon at the Link Building for many years. A month ago, I went for a blow dry and the lady who washes my hair all the time warned me that I had falling hair. My hairstylist for years also commented that the front part of my hair was getting thin. I went into panic mode as I have always taken pride in my thick hair. I didn’t take notice that age, chemicals, constant blow dry, putting highlights, lowlights and all kinds of haircolor are disastrous to hair health and factored in my hair loss. I did some research on how to restore hair growth without having … [Read more...] about Rx for thinning hair
By Kathryn Hudson The Kit Mon., April 29, 2019 I never know how often to wash my hair. I’ve read that it’s good to skip as many washes as possible, but my hair has a tendency to get quite limp after a day or two, maximum. I often resort to wearing it up or using dry shampoo to try to prolong my style, but I’m wondering if I should just wash it every day to freshen it up. Will that actually damage my hair? — Shelley, Oakville There is a good chance this question is also scrawled on the wall of a cave somewhere — painted in symbols by primitive man — because it seems like one of the most fundamental queries asked over and over again by humankind.

I, myself, engage in variations of this conversation several times a day. I have to carefully schedule when I … [Read more...] about Ask The Kit: Do I really need to wash my hair every day?
By Katherine Lalancette The Kit Mon., April 29, 2019 I am of the opinion that dry shampoo isn’t just practical, it’s political. Hear me out: While guys can hop in the shower, slip on a clean shirt and scarf down a Clif bar in 15 minutes flat, most women’s morning routines involve a lot more time and effort. Especially on hair wash days. But thanks to dry shampoo, we too can sleep in and be “low-maintenance,” at least for a few days a week. It’s freaking equality in a can. But, alas, that equality is under attack. Rumours are swirling that the grease-nixing stuff could actually be bad for our hair, even leading to thinning and shedding. Code Red, my friends. Unwilling to part ways with my beloved Batiste, I turned to the pros to see if there was any truth to the claims. Read on for everything you need to know. Is dry shampoo bad for hair? For most of us, the answer is no, says Dr. Jeff Donovan of Whistler’s Donovan Hair … [Read more...] about Is dry shampoo bad for your hair?
