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.
- Use a Moisturizing Shampoo, and Conditioner
- Rinsing with cool water to seal the hair
- Combing your hair with a wide-tooth comb
- Shine serum, to put over the split ends
- 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.

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)

With the crazy weather we have in Northern Nevada, we never know what to expect or how to prepare our hair!! 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!!
Let’s stick together and BEAT THE FRIZZ!
