Edna Miklos of The Hair Place in Lakewood, Colorado was our first speaker today. Edna explained to our new members that she has owned The Hair Place for 25 years and been a stylist for 34 years and at her salon they have a saying “Your Hair is Your Most Important Accessory.” At The Hair Place there are 5 stylists to take car of any of your hair care needs, including Foils, Weaves, Frosts, Glosses, Overall Colors, Texturizers, High & Low Lights, along with hair cuts for Men, Women & Children. Not only do they offer full service hair care, they also do Manicures, Pedicures and facial waxing. Today Edna wanted to discuss common problems with hair and how to correct them. The first problem is Lack Luster Locks, when your hair has no shine and has a dull finish. This situation is caused by the cuticle or outer layer of hair is not laying flat or has a rough surface which does not reflect the light that makes your hair shine. There are a couple ways to solve this problem the first is to use a moisturizing conditioner or a protein treatment that will help seal the cuticle layer – make sure that you are using a moisturizing product designed for your hair type. The other method that will help the cuticle is a semi permanent or a gloss, either with a color tone or clear to add luster, shine and some body to your hair. At The Hair Place, they use Redken Shades EQ for their glosses, calling it a color that thinks it’s a conditioner. Redken Shades EQ is the best on the market and can be used as a one time treatment or as a regular color applied every four to six weeks. The second common problem Edna spoke about was Thin Fine Hair, a common problem for both men and women. Edna’s first solution was to use a hair care regimen designed for fine, thinning hair. The Hair Place recommends the Nioxen line, using this three step process will help with further hair loss and will help keep the scalp in optimal condition for hair growth. The Nioxen Starter Kit has all three steps in one package and costs 45.00 which is much cheaper that Ovation, which can only be purchased online for 85.00. The second option when managing fine hair will be either getting some color put in or texturize your hair. The color option will give your hair more volume because the color roughs up the cuticle layer of your hair. When going with the chemical option on your hair remember to use reconstructors to maintain the integrity of your hair. The last problem Edna spoke to us about was Dry Damaged Hair, a very common problem here in Colorado. Edna’s first solution is to eliminate as much of the over abuse, such as hair dryers, curling irons and flat irons, as you can. Use products that are designed to protect your hair when using these tools, Redken has many products designed this way and will help it hold the style. Her second recommendation for the treatment of dry or chemically damaged hair was the use of reconditioners or protein based treatments. These items will help replace the protein lost through chemical treatments and restore the moisture balance to your hair. At The Hair Place they recommend and use three product lines – Nioxin, Redken and Tri Hair Care, they have found that keeping your hair in good condition by using good products makes their job easier. Letting you enjoy your hair and style with ease. So if you are looking for a stylist that really cares about your hair keep Edna Miklos and The Hair Place in mind!!
