Mane-ly on Monday: No Harm – No Foul

ManelyMonday-665x260Mane: 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 wanted to share a few of my favorite posts on the Karline’s Salon social network streams. I’ll call this list, No Harm – No Foul, for the articles that link to the posts range on topics from harmful hair product ingredients to how to tell others to keep their hands out of your perfectly coiffed style.

Why this post makes the cut: The ingredients in hair care products matter. Sulfates and parabens can do more harm than good for healthy hair.  Don’t be fooled by the claims of full lather, sweet smells and long-lasting. Always consult with your hair care professional or #AskKarlinesSalon for products that are right for your hair texture and type.

Why this post makes the cut: We all know the benefits of milk for healthy bones, but it can also help with healthy hair growth. The article linked to this post provides a couple of ways to use milk in your hair maintenance routines.


What if Wednesday: Smoothing Treatment Alternatives #AskKarlinesSalon #WisdomWednesday

Posted by Karline's Salon on Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Why this post makes the cut: To be quite frank, duh, we wrote it. Subtle plugs aside, there are alternatives to relaxers and thermal reconditioning to tame your curls, control frizz and make your hair more manageable without using chemicals that change the structure of your hair or having to wait months to grow out the application.

Why this post makes the cut: Heart disease is the leading cause of death in men and women, and more than 40 percent of African Americans have high blood pressure, a leading cause of heart disease and stroke. We encourage clients, staff and friends to learn more about heart disease. We can take good care of your hair but you must take good care of you.
Why this post makes the cut: We just love this comeback when someone tries it:

This hair is the work of blood, sweat, and tears, and a whole lot of money. Let’s not ruin it with your hands, okay?

Have a great week!
