Get Your Best Hair Ever with Deep Conditioning Treatments

Conditioning is a must for your hair no matter what your hair type, but many people skip this important step for keeping hair healthy-looking, soft, and manageable. Others use only at-home treatments, which never quite give you the results you want. Only an assessment of your hair’s needs by a professional, and an in-salon professional deep conditioning treatment, can truly give you your best hair ever.

Why is conditioning so important?

Conditioning is a crucial step in keeping your hair healthy-looking because it helps prevent and repair the damage. It all starts at the cellular level. Each hair strand has two layers: an inner core called the cortex and an outer covering protecting the cortex called the cuticle. The cuticle is made up of lots of cells that overlap each other to form a smooth outer covering for the cortex. But those cells are exposed to heat and the elements, so they’re prone to damage. If the cuticle cells are damaged, they lose their tight seal and start to fray. They can get caught up on cuticle cells from other strands, becoming tangled and frizzy looking. Then, the sun and other elements can directly damage the cortex.

Conditioner helps calm down all this mess. It creates a new seal around cuticle cells, so they lay flat again and protect the cortex. Professional conditioning products and techniques use different ingredients that target the problem, so some contain keratin proteins to repair cuticle damage and others contain other compounds needed to repair your hair.

Why can’t I just condition at home? 

Home care is an important part of your hair care routine, but in-salon services are a must. The students here at Summit Salon Academy KC are trained to analyze your hair to determine exactly what your hair needs. Everyone’s hair is different, so everyone needs different conditioning treatments. Our students will determine whether your hair needs more protein, moisture, color protection, and many other factors, then decide the best in-salon treatment option and home treatment enhancements to get the best hair you’ve ever had! The right treatment will restore your hair to the perfect balance and pH level to protect it from damage and make it silky soft and frizz-free.

After your professional hair conditioning treatment, our students will recommend the best in-home products as well as the routines you’ll need to keep your hair in great condition between salon visits.

I have oily hair. Do I still need conditioning treatments?

It’s true that people with dry hair need a more intense conditioning treatment, but every type of hair will benefit from the right conditioner. Hair becomes oily because it’s trying to compensate for lost moisture by over-producing natural oils at the scalp. Balancing out your hair’s pH level after an analysis by our cosmetology students will help keep the oil under better control.

How often do I need in-salon deep conditioning treatments?

Everyone has different needs, so some people will need professional deep conditioning treatments more often, especially those with dry hair. It’s all about the expert assessment of your hair that you’ll get at Summit Salon Academy KC that helps you determine the right treatment frequency for you. No matter how often you need them, the important thing is to have a regular schedule of in-salon hair care treatments so that you can get the best results.
