Austin Hair Salon FAQs

Can I Repair Split Ends?

Sorry to say it, but once you get split ends, they can not be repaired or closed. People tend to get split ends on the protective external layer of their hair. When that outer layer breaks, the best thing you can do for your hair is to get a scissor haircut. Even though they can’t be repaired, you can still give your hair some extra love, try using all-natural hair care products that don’t have any sulfates or harsh chemicals in them.


Does Hair Texture Ever Change?

This one isn’t brought up as much, but it’s worth mentioning. There’s no guarantee you’ll keep the same hair texture you have now for the rest of your life. This can be good news or bad news for some of you. Our hair goes through various stages caused by medications, stress, age, and hormones, so your once coarse hair can later be fine, or your waves can eventually become straight.


Is Coloring Your Hair Unhealthy?

Yes, bleaching your hair is not the best thing. However, it’s a hair salon myth when people say that all types of hair color treatments are harmful to your hair. Adding some color to your hair actually plumps your hair strands and makes your locks look a little thicker. It’s okay to color your hair, as long as you go a little darker!


Do Combs Wet Hair From Top To Bottom?

Whenever you detangle wet hair, make sure you use a wide-toothed comb and start combing your hair from the bottom-not the top. Starting from the ends and working your way up will put less stress on your tresses and prevent pressure and breakage.


If I Get My Hair Cut More Will It Grow Faster?

This is definitely one of the most popular hair myths. Cutting your hair doesn’t affect its growth, but it does make it look a ton healthier. The truth is, your scalp affects how your hair grows. The reason Austin hair salons say to trim your hair every six to eight weeks is to reduce split ends. Split ends make your hair look thinner, and it causes more breakage. 


If I Brush My Hair More Will It Support My Hair?

Do you brush your hair 50 times a day? Then you might need to rethink your hairstyling routine. One of the most prominent hair myths is that brushing your hair a lot is suitable for your hair. Unfortunately, in this Austin heat, over-brushing your hair can cause damage and break your hair. Excessive hair brushing causes more harm than good. Try only to brush your hair when it’s knotted. Otherwise, ditch the brush and let your locks fly free.


Is It True If I’m Pregnant I Cant Get My Hair Colored?

Our hair colorist in Austin receives this question a lot. The chief concern with dyeing your hair during pregnancy is the risk associated with inhaling the ammonia, not the chance of it being absorbed into your scalp. The good news is that the levels of ammonia are so low that it’s not a problem, especially if you go to an Austin salon, which will have industrial strength ventilation.
