Just as showed in the video above, the diagnostic camera lets us take a look at your hair and scalp up close and magnifies by up to 500 times allowing us to build an extra precise diagnosis. It will let us know what areas have more damage than others. That way, we can recommend the right Kerastase products for your hair needs!
Let's take a look at common causes of hair breakage and how to reverse the issue...

I'd be lying to all of you if I said I protected my hair from heat 24/7 because the truth of the matter is that I can also be lazy just like you! But when we let go of taking care of our hair, we end up back in square 1. You're sitting there asking yourself..."Do I just cut it all off? Should I find time to go for a treatment? Do I shave it like Britney?"
The answer to all of that is simple! Start protecting your hair from heat and find styles that require little to no heat. Click h e r e for a heatless curls tutorial.

If you have ever coloured your hair at all then you know what we're dealing with here. The struggle to keep it looking healthy and feeling hydrated is difficult when you're in the salon every few months just to maintain your colour. The secret is in the products you use after leaving the salon. Your whole hair care routine from start to finish should cater to what your hair needs. Below is a list of products I recommend for anyone with dry and/or damaged hair.

Stylists recommend washing your hair only 3 times a week and you may be wondering well why? How can over washing my hair cause more damage? We're going to get a little scientific here. So, the more you wash your hair the more you strip down your scalps natural oils that it needs to stay in tip top shape!
Dry shampoo will be your best friend in this case! If you've never heard of dry shampoo before... well it's exactly what it sounds like - A dry shampoo that cleanses the hair and scalp without the use of water AKA magic and my personal favourite product to use!

I know I know... some of you hate going to the salon to get a trim but you know what? Sometimes your hair really needs that extra TLC, and a visit to the salon is exactly what it needs to start feeling better and looking healthier! Avoiding your regular scheduled haircuts can result in your split ends just breaking off... uh oh!

Skin can become dry with season changes and so can your hair! Without optimal hydration, hair is much more prone to breakage so you always want to make sure that your strands are getting just the right amount of love they deserve. If you're already doing it for your skin, then adding this into your routine should be no problem!
Starting off with a super moisturizing shampoo and conditioner is a good way to start. Check out the recommendations below!
