Summer Hair Care Tips

by Ishi

Summer is NOT the time to relax on maintaining your hair. Each season has its environmental challenges that affect your hair and hair care regimen. Caretrico's shampoos Type-H for thick hair or Type-S for fine hair were developed for those hair-type needs.

Caretrico's Type-H and Type-S Shampoos. Type-H is ideal for medium to thick, coarse and/or heavily damaged hair, while Type-S is perfect for fine to medium textured damaged hair.
Shampoos Aren't Just For Cleaning. They've been developed specifically to benefit certain hair types. Allow products a minute or two to work before rinsing. Outdoor summer activities probably make you feel the need to shampoo more often. Keep shampooing to a minimum but rinse and condition as often as needed.

Click to order S-HEART-S Scalp Brush Mini. This sleek scalp massaging brush has 376 round-tipped nylon bristles specially designed to remove dirt, buildup and excess oil from the 40,000 follicles on the scalp.
S-HEART-S Shampoo Brush helps to thoroughly clean your scalp and hair. The ball tips penetrate to your scalp to massage and stimulate while the hair strands slide through the bristles distributing the shampoo or conditioner along the hair shaft. One shampooing should be enough unless you've been involved in a hot & dusty activity. Horseback riding, perhaps?

Swimming Pool Chemicals Bond with Hair. They build up on the hair making it look dull and dry. Mix a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water and use this to rinse after shampooing. The vinegar works as a clarifier to strip the chemicals.

Then, when you condition or use a treatment such as Caretrico's Treatment Slim Through, which adds moisture, or Treatment Moist Sleek, light weight to maintain volume, mist a little Vine Care Water in and brush through to drive in the treatment.

Care Water (last week we discussed its benefits in great length) is negative ion water with a 12.5ph. It is 170 times more absorbent than plain water. For best results leave the treatment on your hair 3 to 5 minutes before rinsing.
Caretrico's Treatment Slim Through (left) is formulated specifically for thick, coarse and/or curly hair Vine Minus Ion Care Water is quite simply the closest thing to miracle water. Caretrico's Treatment Moist Sleek (right) has been reformulated specifically for non-course and/or wavy hair.
Styling Is Where You Can Be More Relaxed During Summer
Let your hair dry naturally. Constant blow drying and flat ironing takes out the needed moisture, and who wants more hot air to deal with during August? If you want some definition to your natural style movement add a little styling aid and scrunch your hair to support the natural movement.

Ishi honed his hair styling skills by studying with the top stylists in the beauty capitals of the world, including Tokyo, Paris, London and New York. Ishi has been strongly influenced by the elegant, soft and sexy look of French hairstyling, as well as the impeccable level of customer service traditionally found in Japanese salons. Ishi has combined these influences to create his own salon, Salon Ishi, in midtown Manhattan.

For Ishi, style is that which makes someone his or her most beautiful; the most important beauty secret is enabling a person to feel good about him or herself.
