Finishing Tips for a Great Hair Day

Posted on by webmaster in Hair Solutions, KS Commentary Leave a comment

Mane: a reference to hair
Monday: the second day of a hair professional’s weekend

Even on a stylist’s day off, she – that would be me – is still thinking about your hair! Welcome to my Mane-ly Monday,  time and space for collective observations and opinions on all things hair:  trends, techniques, treatments, tools, environment and more. As I reflect, recharge, and review the book for the week ahead, may my hair muse, music, and finishing tips for a great hair day motivate you, too.

Let’s start with you, and these finishing tips to maintain the health and style of your hair until your next appointment.  In the morning, nourish and moisturize your hair. The product recommended and available at Karline’s Salon is Enjoy Hair Care‘s Nourishing and Moisturizing Oil.

It is a luxurious blend of premium oils that revitalize, restore, seal, enhance shine and smoothness to the hair. We frequently feature this product as our product of the month, so follow Karline’s Salon to snag a significant discount.

At night, protect your hair with satin. Satin is one of the best-kept secrets of at-home hair care for all types and textures. It is an investment you will not regret. Unlike other fabrics, such as cotton and wool, satin maintains the hair’s natural moisture, prevents breakage and reduces frizz.  It is a smooth fabric that does not pull or tangle the strands of the hair.

Satin Pillowcase for Hair Protection – Truth or Myth?

A lot of people don’t even realize how much can depend on the kind of pillow they sleep on but don’t worry if you are one of them because now is the time for you to find out the truth.

So toss the uncomfortable rollers, pins and harmful bandanas.  Wrap your hair in our satin StyleGuard or lay your head on a KS Satin Pillowcase. Head over to the KS Hair Care Shop for more product information.

The KS Satin StyleGuard

Now, here’s my hair muse for the week.  I am crushing on pink and have been since I transformed this client’s color over the summer. In fact, recently Refinery 29 proclaimed, Wear One Color In 2018, Make It Pink! Read the article here.

And my music motivation, another MICK re-mix, Swimming Pools 3, featuring a little Aaliyah, Marvin Gaye, Tears For Fears, The Weeknd, and more.  Check it out!

Now that I am in the groove for a productive week, shared two essential finishing tips to make every day a great hair day, remember to make an appointment to visit Karline’s Salon, your West Palm Beach sanctuary for healthy hair.

Have a great week!

What if You Want a Silk Press?

Posted on by webmaster in Hair Solutions, Hair Styles 2 Comments

KS-WIW-new

What if you want a silk press? Trust a professional hair stylist to help with that! A silk press is a delicious style for natural hair that requires a lot of love and, a minimum of 6 inches in length. Long gone are the days of the press and curl, the silk press is a process of blow drying the hair after shampooing and conditioning, and then using a ceramic iron to smooth out the curl and give the hair a silky texture.

The silk press, if properly maintained, can last up to two weeks. A protein treatment and trim will prolong the style. If you’ve been wearing braids for a while, we recommend a strengthening therapy, a protein based treatment for weakened or damaged hair.

Your silk press at-home care should include NO HEAT, but instead, daily use of a light oil or serum to smooth and maintain the hair’s shine. Two products we highly recommend are the Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Styling Treatment Oil or Silkology Silkit Hi-Gloss Serum, both available at Karline’s Salon. At night, pull out your KS Satin gear: the KS SatinStyleGuard (wrap cap) and the KS Satin pillowcase. During exercise and workouts, apply your oil or serum and wear the satin cap. And don’t forget to schedule your salon appointment every two weeks.

Here’s more on the silk press:

 

When you’re ready to give the silk press a try, make an appointment to visit Karline’s Salon, your West Palm Beach sanctuary for healthy and happy hair.

Mane: a reference to hair
Monday: the second day of a hair professional’s weekend

Even on a stylist’s day off, she – that would be me – is still thinking about your hair! Welcome to my Mane-ly Monday, a time and space for collective observations and opinions on all things hair: the trends, techniques, treatments, tools, environment and more. As I reflect and recharge, I am excited about the launch of the KS Hair Care Shop, which features our exclusive line of satin accessories to protect your hair and maintain your style!

Satin is one of the best-kept secrets of at-home hair care for all types and textures. It is an investment you will not regret. Unlike other fabrics, such as cotton and wool, satin maintains the hair’s natural moisture, prevents breakage and reduces frizz. It is a smooth fabric that does not pull or tangle the strands of the hair. We recommend using a satin accessory when you sleep, rest, relax or workout. You can even use our Satin StyleGuard underneath a shower cap, cherished wool hat or Easter bonnet.

So toss the uncomfortable rollers, pins and harmful bandanas. Wrap your hair in our Satin StyleGuard or lay your head on a KS Satin Pillowcase for healthy and happy hair.

Have a great week!!
