Benefits of Deep Conditioning

July 24th, 2015



What is a Deep Conditioning?

A deep conditioning replenishes the hair follicle with moisture, making it healthier!

Benefits of a Deep Conditioning:healthy-hair-red

  • Provides much needed Nutrients to the hair follicle.
  • Allows hair to shine and appear as healthy as possible.
  • Provides a protective measure to lessen damage done to hair through styling or the environment.
  • Helps hair bounce back from dryness and damage.

Who benefits from a Deep Conditioning?

Those who use styling products often.

  • Styling products can cause built up, which prevents hair from looking its best. Built up can also cause hair to feel dull.

Those who use heat on a regular basis.heatdamagedhair

  • “Regularly using tools like a blow dryer or flat iron can cause a lot of damage.” says Reno blow dry bar stylist Mila, “This damage can lead to split ends!”



Individuals who use chemical dyes, relaxers, or harsh treatments, (hair weaves and micro braid included).

  • Elements break down the molecular structure of the hair by stripping it of all its natural moisture.

Those who use shampoo containing Sulfates.

  • Sulfates rob the hair of its natural moisture, which makes the hair weak.

AND most importantly!

Those who live in a dry environment!

  • Reno blow dry bar stylist Emily states “Reno’s dry and hot summers can cause damage to your hair, making it appear lifeless.”

 So come into the Reno blow dry bar for a Deep Conditioning today!

We use two signature treatments: our Signature L’Oreal Treatment to repair dry, weak or color treated hair, or our Bassu Conditioning Mask treatment, a hydrating mask that brings dry hair back to life!

Untangling the Truth about Round Brushes.

May 9th, 2015


Round Brushes… WHAT?

 Why is it round?  How do I even use a round brush? What kind of brush is right for my hair? If you’ve ever had any of these questions, today is your lucky day the mystery of the round brush will be solved!

First the size is a HUGE factor of what length of hair you have and what look you want to achieve.  Here are some size tips:

3/4″ to 1 1/4″

Is the smaller barrel and is perfect for shorter hair and will provide great lift and curl.

1 1/4″ to 1 3/4″

This is the medium sized barrel and is great for long hair for semi-loose curls.

1 1/4″ to 1 1/2″

This size of brush will have a more open bristle which creates volume with short hair. You can also run it through your roots with long hair to achieve more volume.

1 1/2″ to 2″

The large barrel creates great waves and curves for long hair and also a great amount of volume when brushed from the crown to ends using a rolling motion.

Add the Surface Jump Mousse to the roots and the volume will last all day!

Using a round brush isn’t easy and the first few times might feel awkward. Like anything else, learning takes a few times before it gets easier.  We hope this helps clear up any questions you may have had about the brush that is round.

The Do’s And Don’t’s of Washing Your Hair!

May 2nd, 2015

hair-wash_1623709cMany articles, and probably even your stylists continue to talk about the importance of your hair washing routine, but what really is the proper way to wash your hair? Should we wash everyday, every other day? Use the same shampoo, or switch things up? Let’s hear what the experts say:

Less is More- The truth for healthier looking hair, and for a longer blowout is not washing the hair everyday. Some experts say to go 2-3 days between shampooing your hair for the best look. To help your hair stay clean, and non-greasy they recommend a Dry Shampoo.

One is Best- Switching shampoo’s is not better for your hair. If anything it does not do much anything different.

Shampoo on top, Conditioner on Bottom- When washing, focus the shampoo more on the roots to cleanse and the conditioner on the shaft and ends to help maintain moisture and give that shiny look.

Conditioner is Good!- Some people think conditioner only makes their hair greasy and does more harm than good, but that isn’t true. As mentioned before it is good for the ends of your hair, however you should not put so much on the roots of your hair. Natural Oils are healthy and will help condition the roots, so too much conditioner will overwhelm them.


All these great tips, and more can be found at

How to Make your Blowouts Last Longer

February 21st, 2015

Love your blowouts and want more? Here are some handy-dandy tips to make your blowouts last longer!

thst1. Dry Shampoo

Spraying Dry Shampoo on the scalp is one of the best things you can do to maintain your blowouts! The Dry Shampoo will absorb the oil that has built up that makes your hair look greasy and dirty. (Pick up your bottle of Trinity Dry Shampoo at Reno Blow Dry Bar)

2. Be careful when you sleep.

During your sleep so much happens with your hair. For one, most people sleep on cotton pillows which are really hard on your hair. Stylist, for Lifestyle Mirror, say the best thing to do is to sleep with a silk or satin pillow case. They will reduce the friction on your hair. Also during your sleep, you sweat and that sweat will cause moisture in your hair, which is a huge way for your style to get destroyed.

3. Stay clear from moisture.

Any kind of moisture is upsetting for your blowout. If you need to shower, wear a really good shower cap and don’t make the water hot enough to steam the bathroom. Also, going to the gym, or even sleeping like mentioned before will cause sweat and moisture. Do your best to prevent moisture!

4.Shine it!

After the Dry Shampoo and a day or so of wear, the shine that your hair had on the first day might have faded away. So to perk up your blowout and give it salon look everyday, spritz some shine spray to your hair. But remember, a little goes a long way.

A common question all stylists are asked is, “ How can I fix my split ends?” The answer isn’t as simple as a quick remedy, and most likely cannot be entirely prevented. Split ends can occur for many reasons, too much shampoo, fried hair, or even prolonging visits to get your hair cut can do the deed. Once you figure out which cause pertains to you, the fix can be found.

Style and Beauty experts for Oprah magazine give great advise to prevent split ends.

  1. Use a Moisturizing Shampoo, and Conditioner
  2. Rinsing with cool water to seal the hair
  3. Combing your hair with a wide-tooth comb
  4. Shine serum, to put over the split ends
  5. Using a heat protectant before using hot tools

Another aid to preventing spilt ends and keeping your hair looking healthy is Moroccan Oil. Stylists at Reno Blow Dry Bar, Love this product and highly recommend it.

AAA+damaged+hair Myth Busters: Hair Edition

It seems with the growth of DIY sites such as Pinterest and Tumblr on the rise, new hair remedies are being created left and right! The question is, can you trust them?? After doing some research, Woman’s Day found the answer to the biggest hair theories!

#1: Cutting your hair regularly, will make it grow faster.

MYTH- “ Cutting ends will prevent damage and encourage stronger, healthier hair, it doesn’t tell the roots to grow faster.” Jenny Cho, Professional Stylist for Suave.

#2: You can’t die your hair while you are pregnant.

MYTH- The hype about avoiding hair dye while being pregnant should be steered to avoid hair dye’s containing Formaldehyde. Not all hair dyes contain this, such as henna-based dyes. Dr. Amy Burkett, MD, a ob-gyn director, does recommend avoiding all hair dye products during the first trimester of pregnancy, but has not found a study to prove hair dye is dangerous during the remaining trimesters.

#3: If you have greasy hair, skip the conditioner.

MYTH- Greasy hair is the over production of an oily substance that is produced by the tissues on the scalp. Conditioner is not the cause of the greasiness, and skipping it won’t help. What is recommended is to use a a clarifying shampoo on the roots and then apply conditioner to the middle of your hair, avoiding lather it on the scalp. Dry Shampoo can also be applied to dry hair. ( Check out Trinity Dry Shampoo which we sell at Reno Blow Dry Bar)
