Why Hair Prep is Essential to Great Styling and Overall Hair Health in 2024

As we embark on a fresh year, the desire for positive change extends beyond just personal goals—it includes our hair health too. At Vera Salon, we believe that healthy, beautiful hair is the perfect accessory for any occasion. In our ongoing series of "New Year, New Hair Health," we've covered the essentials of cleansing and conditioning. Now, let's delve into another crucial aspect that is sometimes overlooked when considering hair health: The Prep.

What is Prep?

Prep, in the realm of hair care, is the unsung hero that lays the foundation for every great style, whether you're rocking natural locks or flaunting extensions. It's the behind-the-scenes work, smoothing unruly strands, imparting softness, protecting your hair from heat styling and creating the ideal texture that allows your hair to hold styles with grace and longevity.

Whether you're preparing for a special occasion or aiming to elevate your everyday look, proper preparation is the key to unlocking your hair's full potential. It's the transformative step that enhances visual appeal, maintains style longevity, and nurtures the health of your hair from within.

Why You Need to Prep

Longer-Lasting Styles

Imagine having an upcoming event and wanting your hair to be the star of the show. Without the right prep, achieving that flawless look can be a challenge. Hair prep is like having a dedicated backstage crew ensuring the main act shines. By using products like Oribe's Balm d'Or Heat Styling Shield, your styles not only look fantastic on the day but also last longer. The prep sets the stage for a hairstyle that withstands the test of time.

Protection from Heat

One of the prime reasons for hair damage is excessive heat exposure. Daily styling tools like blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons can take a toll on your hair. The Invisible Defense Universal Protection Spray acts as a shield, protecting your hair from thermal damage up to 450°F. It's your daily dose of protection against the harsh elements your hair faces regularly.

Understanding the Impact of Heat

Heat can be detrimental to your hair's health. It strips away natural oils, making your hair dry and prone to breakage. The cuticles, which are the protective layers of your hair, can become damaged, leading to frizz and a lackluster appearance. By incorporating a heat protection spray into your routine, you create a barrier that minimizes these risks, ensuring your hair stays healthy and vibrant.

Enhancing Shine

Prep products, such as Oribe's Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil, are designed not only for protection but also for nourishment. This luxuriously light oil absorbs instantly, restoring your hair to its prime. Infused with a rich blend of extracts, it conditions, strengthens, and imparts intense nourishment, resulting in incredible shine. It's the secret to achieving that luminous, healthy glow.

Make The Change

As we embark on this journey of new beginnings, let your hair be a reflection of the positive changes you're making. The simple act of prepping transforms not just your locks but also your confidence. Each day is an opportunity to elevate your style and embrace the radiant, healthier version of yourself.
