Do you have dry crunchy Hair? Crispy? Damaged? If so, the Leading Edge hair salon in Santa Rosa along with Aveda can help.

How can you tell if you have dry, crunchy hair? WebMD says, “Take a dry strand and gently pull both ends to stretch it. If it breaks easily, you don’t have enough moisture in your hair.” The article suggests that a better moisturizer might be the solution.

Although a lot of products say they’re moisturizing on the label, in reality they might simply coat your hair to make it feel softer and not really be adding any moisture at all. WebMD recommends looking “for products with natural oils” and to “stay away from shampoos with mineral oil and petrolatum, which keep outside moisture from getting in.”

Aveda offers not only great moisturizing options, such as, AVEDA Nutriplenish Conditioner Light Moisture and AVEDA Nutriplenish Conditioner Deep Moisture, but also AVEDA Nutriplenish Shampoo Light Moisture and AVEDA Nutriplenish Shampoo Deep Moisture. These products feature a vegan superfood blend of potent plant butter and oils, that cleanse and replenish dry hair with nutrient-powered hydration oil.

Leading Edge Salon (located across the street from Park Point Health Club) in Santa Rosa also has some tips to help with your crunchy hair..


1.    Let go of some length.

Trim dead ends every six to eight weeks. Especially if you use hot tools regularly. Leading Edge Salon Hair Stylists warn against snipping strands at home because dull scissors can fray your ends even more. Plus, cutting the back of your hair in a straight line isn’t easy!

2.    Beware of excessive heat and use styling products.

Although heat is the best way to get a sleek, styled look be sure to use a styling product that helps protect your hair from excessive heat. If you have fine hair, set your styling tools on low so that you don’t burn your hair. Medium and coarse hair can handle slightly higher temperatures but proceed with caution.

3.    Watch out for the weather.

Extreme weather will zap moisture from your hair. Wear a hat when the weather conditions are bad so that moisture is retained.

4.    Don’t fry your hair with chemicals.

Do you get perms, relaxers or permanent color? “Chemicals take away hair’s natural moisture and weaken the strands. For instance, If you have too many chemical treatments, your hair might turn dull and frizzy. Try to keep your salon hair color within three shades of your natural hair color. For example, Hair color closer to your natural shade needs less processing. And try to space out your treatments.”

In addition to Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner, use the Dry Remedy Treatment Masque once a week for more intense results.

And if you want to add shine daily, while controlling fly away ends use Aveda’s Dry Remedy™ Daily Moisturizing Oil. All are safe for color-treated hair!

These products will leave your hair soft, supple and shinny. 93% of women agreed their hair felt immediately moisturized and soft after using the dry remedy™ system* and enjoyed the natural aroma with organic bergamot, lavender and ginger lily.

*The system includes Dry Remedy™ Moisturizing Shampoo, Conditioner, Masque and Daily Moisturizing Oil.
