The Winter Effect On Your Hair

Winter Effect Hair and How to Fix ItThere are a lot of good things about winter, bad hair conditions are not among them. Especially for ladies, your hair suffers during the winter. Winter effect causes split ends to dandruff, we all suffer in one way or another. Here are some tips to help you look your best during the cold season!

Winter Effect Causes Brittle Hair 

When the moisture outside drops, your hair can become dry and brittle, leading to a weaker appearance. You can fix this by easing up on your hot tools, such as curling irons and hair straighteners. Also, try to add more moisture to your hair by using hydrating shampoos and leave-in conditioners.


When temperatures fall, hair tends to static as it gains electrons from the air as there is no humidity or moisture to counteract the energy. To fix this, try to keep moisture in your hair. Try to use hydrating shampoos and conditioners as well as stepping back from your usual hair-dryer.

Split ends

In the winter, the cold weather and lack of moisture can cause your hair to break or “split”. The only way to fix that is to go into the salon for a haircut and keeping your hair moisturized so it doesn’t become brittle and break off again.

Matted Hair

As soon as winter starts, your hair gets stuffed into the nape of hoodies and jackets. This causes the hair to become matted. The best way to counteract matted hair is to keep it away from the collars of jackets and scarves. Wear your hair up in a braid or bun. Even ponytails can be rocked with a good winter outfit and you can avoid matting!

Dandruff and Itchy Scalp

Because of the dry air, your scalp becomes dry. This leads to dandruff and dry skin. A good way to fix this is to use less shampoo and more conditioner. The shampoo usually contains chemicals that dry your hair and take out necessary oils while conditioners add a protective layer to every strand. You can also use medicated brands such as Head and Shoulders to ensure a healthy scalp and hair.

For the best look this winter, come into Charisma to get a haircut, conditioner, and style for a great price. The dry winter air won’t be a match for your hair. Set up an appointment and contact us today!

For some the thought of going short is intimidating.  Turning to a medium hairstyle may be enough of a change for you. With vibrant color and a great cut, medium length hairstyles are endless. Some of the most popular medium length hairstyles coming into 2019 are the long bob (lob), a balayage, or a layered cut for women with thinning hair.

Why Buy Salon Products from A Salon

Has your hair been feeling flat, lackluster, or just dry and damaged from the fall weather? If you’ve been making regular salon visits, but your hair is still “Eh” it might be the products your using. Drugstore and shady website’s hair product selections (while seemingly massive) aren’t guaranteed to be the best from that brand. These hair care products are sometimes expired and frequently aren’t even the correct product! Buying your hair care and styling products from a salon ensures your hair is getting exactly what it needs. Let us explain why.

When you need the best salon products, come to Charisma Salon Detroit!

We have all the hair care products you need at Charisma Salon Detroit!

Benefits of Buying Hair Care Salon Products at Charisma Detroit

When you buy salon products from a box store you’re not guaranteed you’re getting what you pay for. There have been several investigative reports that have found expired, low quality, and misleading products being stocked on shelves and sent to your home. Since these outlets aren’t required to keep reliable and safe products in stock, you end up paying for it. Ordering off Amazon doesn’t ensure that you’re buying the product that your paying for.  Buying directly for a licensed and certified salon helps ensure that you are getting exactly what your hair needs and what you pay for. We love to help our clients get the best products for their hair types and hair needs, which Amazon can’t give to you.

Not only do salon quality products make your hair look and feel amazing, but they’re also great gifts to give to loved ones! The holidays are right around the corner, so cross a few a few names off your list from Charisma Salon! We’re running our Black Friday Gift Card sale as well (more details to come, check our Facebook for details!)

With the holidays coming up, we wanted to remind everyone to remember to book their appointments in advance. We book up very very quickly during the holiday season, so make sure to book your appointment in advance!

Paraffin Treatments for Dry Skin this Winter

Paraffin wax dips are a salon treatment used for manicures and pedicures to help hydrate and rejuvenate dry damaged skin. This petroleum and mineral oil based wax product were first used in the 1950’s by doctors to help arthritis patients with pain relief. By the 1980’s it was commonplace in nail treatments and pedicures in salons as a way to help dry or damaged skin.

Here at Charisma Salon and Day Spa, we use paraffin dips in our manicure and pedicure treatments as a way to help our clients relax and repair their hand or feet. We highly recommend it during the dry winter months to keep your skin healthy and hydrated!
