Hey, that axiom holds true for builders. How about the person cutting your hair????? You the consumer better hope the person waving their shears over your hair about to snip away has measure. Or, at least has a plan how to cut your hair.         It all starts with a consultation. That's when your stylist asks you questions how you want your hair cut and shape. You reply  with hopes your stylist understands. I tell you one major important thing.... important thing.... THEY BETTER NOT START CUTTING UNTIL YOU HAVE A CONSULTATION.       And to make sure you know your stylist does a good consultation make sure their questions are open ended questions. these questions start by the words : How, Why, Where, Who.... Questions that start with one of these words forces you to talk and not just answer "yes" or "no". By talking, you are painting the picture in your stylist mind what you see in your mind. Let me end by saying:   CONSULTATION, CONSULTATION and CONSULTATION. ( get it).

To the consumer, conditioners are confusing. Leading the cloud of uncertainty is the hair industry with its lie that conditioners do repair your damaged hair. No, it does not!        Conditioners fall into two types:  conditioners and deep conditioners. Also, conditioners perform two main functions: lower your hair's pH ( takes out tangles ) and temporarily fix damage hair. The key word is temporarily fix your hair. T E M P O R A R I L Y.          Conditioners, the first type, are for every day use to take out knots and tangles. You see, shampoos and water causes your hair's pH to rise which swells your hair shaft and makes knots in your hair. Using conditioners lowers your hair's pH which smooth your hair shaft and takes out tangles. Shampoo your hair then use a conditioner, rinse it out, to easily get a comb though your hair.        Deep conditioners are used to temporarily help your hair not totally to repair it. Why it can not totally repair your hair is because once your hair grows out from your head, there is no longer any cell division. Your hair is dead. Think of your hair as a road with damage to your hair like a bunch of pot holes. ( pot holes represent damage to your hair ) Deep conditioners fill in these pot holes and temporarily smooth your hair. Because your hair lacks cell division, the damage is still present just fill over. After time, the damage comes back.          NOTHING REPAIRS DAMAGED HAIR but a good hair cut. NOTHING.

Shampoo, shampoo. My kingdom for a shampoo

There is no other part of our body devoted to so many products than our hair. There are more items, products and treatments for the care of hair than for the fight to cure cancer. Hundreds of products. Skin, hands, feet or any other body part. But hair is in its own field.

I like to tell , even shout out over the roof tops, that hair color is not easy to master. Yet consumers think that they can go to any salon and color their hair. You just don't put a tube of color on your hair and, puff, perfect hair color..... NO, NO, NO.                                                                                           Put color on your head then, after a few months apply a different color on your head not happening. NO, NO, NO.                                                                                                                                          One chant I want to yell..... Artificial color DOES NOT CHANGE artificial color. YES, YES, YES.
