9 Steps To Fabulous Looking Hair From Jet Rhys


Listed below are some amazing tips from Jet Rhys who is the owner of Jet Rhys Salon in San Diego, California.

1.  Shampoo & Condition!

Find a great shampoo suited for your hair type, e.g. fine, curly etc., with a matching conditioner.   Insider TIP! - Massage the shampoo onto the scalp and let it cleanse the rest of your hair as it rinses out. Apply conditioner to the mid lengths and ends of your hair, rinse thoroughly then a final cold water rinse for maximum shine.

2. Combing & Brushing!

It is imperative to use a good quality comb and brush! No plastic! Hair will rip and break very easily. Plastic also causes electro static. The more you comb or brush the more static your hair will have. TIP! - Swissco wet comb has nice wide teeth for detangling.  TIP! - For hair brush, Denman Cushion brush is great for all hair types.

3. Shape It!

Hair ages as it grows. The hair closest to your scalp is the youngest; however, the mid lengths and ends of your hair are old; especially if you have long hair. TIP! - A great solution to having a healthy vibrant style is to have your ends trimmed every 5 - 7 weeks.

4. Color It!

Enhance the shine and radiate your skin tone by asking your colorist for a demi-permanent color. This will wash out gradually and not leave any visible re-growth. TIP! - Donʼt be shy about increasing the gold or red highlights to liven up your hair.

5. Style It!

Looks are everything, get styled! Begin by breaking the habit of over-styling and avoid man-handling your wet hair. When hair is wet, it loses up to 35% of its elasticity and is more prone to breakage. TIP! - Wash hair in the PM, air dry, then in the morning pop in about 6 hot rollers for smooth and bouncy hair.

6. Sleep On It!

Your hair is just like your skin - it repairs itself overnight.  Invest in a masque. Every night take a little smear of your masque and work into the mid lengths and tips of hair.  When you wake up you will be amazed how healthy and shiny it is. TIP! - Sleep on a silk pillowcase as opposed to a cotton one. Hair slides on silk, cotton catches and tangles.

7. Keep Hydrated!

Just like your skin, your hair can get dehydrated too - drink plenty of water to increase your hairʼs vitality and shine naturally. TIP! - To re-activate your products in hair or to reduce static by dryness, spritz a little Evian H2O mist right

into the hair.

8. Eat Right!

Even though your can find hair supplements on the shelves in most stores, itʼs best to get the nutrients your hair needs from the right foods whenever possible. TIP! - Look for Omega-3ʼs to enhance shine, flaxseed for strength and fruits and vegetables loaded with folic acid for the over all health of your hair.

9. Own Your Style!

If your hair isnʼt right, your day isnʼt right either. There are little changes or complete makeovers to help us boost our confidence or give us a new outlook. TIP! - Take care of your hair and your hair will look healthy, shiny and give you a youthful glow.
