Jennifer Aniston, Ellen Pompeo, Kate Beckingsale and Reno Blow Dry Bar all have something in common, our love for Ficcare Clips!

Ficcare is a family owned company that produces Hair Pins, Barrettes, Pony Holders, Hair clips, and so much more! What makes them so special? Our favorite thing about the Hair Clips is that they do not leave a dent in your hair, which makes them perfect to sleep in! Another awesome fact about the clips is variety of ways you can wear them! Partial Updo, and a French Twist are just two of the styles. Along with the rest of the Ficcare products, the clips come in many different sizes and colors. Other companies have tried to produce similar products but Ficcare is so unique there isn’t any other clip that comes close to it.

Our stylist suggest uses the clips to help maintain your blowout, or for days when you don’t have time to receive a blowout. Ficcare clips are not hard on your hair so they won’t leave a dent or even damage your hair!

Make sure to purchase your Ficcare Clip at your next appointment, or go to http://www.ficcare.com to find out more about these amazing products.

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)

Thankfully Cosmopolitan, has advice on how to prevent the most dreaded of all hair disasters; Frizz!! Maybe you are part of the lucky few that don’t have to panic when the humidity hits but for you other ladies, this is definitely an article to read.

Shampoo &Conditioner- This is the big one!! Using the right shampoo for your hair type is the first step in not only preventing frizz, but also protecting it and keeping it as healthy it could be. Nexxus, Biolage, and Dove are recommended by Cosmopolitan.

Lightweight serum or oil- The article lists Moroccanoil as a great way to help limit the flyway’s! This humidity repellant is so great we even use it at Reno Blow Dry Bar. Stop in and grab a bottle for yourself!

 The Brush- Like the shampoo, the type of brush you use is very important. A Boar Bristle Brush, “which will help lock the hydration in from the previous products you used and keep any humidity out.”  (Cosmopolitan.com)

Anti-frizz Hairspray- To finish, and to fully protect your hair, lock it in with an Anti-Frizz aerosol hairspray.

ALSO,  here are at Reno Blow Dry Bar, we have a special service known as the Agave Treatment. This treatment reduces 100% of the frizz for up to twelve weeks!!
