TEXTURIZING THE HAIR
A lot of today’s hairdressers are slithering the hair. Some hairstyles require the technique to remove bulk and add texture to the hair. When done properly by a qualified technician the results can be very dramatic.
I have seen quite a few new clients lately whose hair has been torn to shreds from slithering. Slithering slices open the hair shaft and it can leave the hair broken, dry and damaged. Baby fine hair or coarse wiry hair should never be slithered. Slithering does not produce volume. It takes away bulk. The closer the stylist slithers to the scalp the longer it takes for the hair to grow out.
If your hair has been slithered and it is damaged there are a couple of things you can do.
First realize it needs to grow out. Having it trimmed regularly will help remove the dry, torn damage. Using a moisturizing conditioner such as Voltech Hair Salad will help restore the elasticity and smooth the cuticle as the hair grows. You will be able to style your hair and control the frizz. John Freida’s Secret Weapon also helps reduce frizz and add shine to the hair.
If your new style looks great with slithering do not over due it. It may not need to be done with every haircut. Your stylist will know. Stick with a hairdresser who knows what they are doing.
