Not only does this cost quite a bit less than a full single-process color or highlight service, but it will nourish your hair, give it more shine, and let you sneak in a few more weeks before you need to retouch! Think of it like getting a top coat for your manicure - it seals in the color, protects it, and keeps your hair healthy.
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!
I don't care if you have skin like an oil slick or as dry as the Sahara on your face, you need to exfoliate in winter. Whether it's with something as basic as a daily cleaser with exfoliant, like Mary Kay's TimeWise 3-in-1 Cleanser, or going deeper 1-3 times a week with Mary Kay's Microdermabrasion, you need to slough off all that dead, dry skin, expose the fresh, supple skin, and treat it before it dies off too quickly!
The same goes for your hands! Don't forget to take care of your mitts before you put on the mitts. Satin Hands does the trick. This three-step process will pre-condition your hands, then exfoliate and cleanse, and finally moisturize and protect your hands from chapping, cracking and from feeling unpleasant.
Don't forget those lips!
Lips get chapped in the winter. This is no surprise. But, get ready to have your mind blown. You know that Chapstick you live on in winter? The one you slather on all the time? Ever wonder why you have to keep slapping that stuff on all the time, yet your lips still chap? Easy. You're coating dead skin with stuff that just coats your lips, it doesn't treat the dryness. Guess what you need to do? Exfoliate. (Sound familiar?) The BEST option for this is Mary Kay's Satin Lips set. The masque will deep condition and exfoliate the dead lip skin cells, and the balm will moisturize and protect the fresh, supple skin.
Moisturize & Strengthen
This is a great time of year to come in to get a conditioning treatment. The dry air your hair is subjected to due to the lack of humidity outside, the cold, and the dry air generated by heating systems blasting through interiors will suck the life out of your hair, leaving it brittle and weak. Consider coming in for a conditioning treatment! Depending on your hair's specific needs - from repairing breakage to adding moisture - there are several options available to you. In addition, you get a fabulous scalp massage and some quiet relaxation.
Cutting & Maintenance
Broken ends are like a run in a stocking. If you don't address them while they are small and just starting, they will shoot up and ruin everything. Even if you are growing out your hair, coming in for a trim is essential in dry, winter weather. It allows me to cut off those dead ends, make your hair look alive again, and you don't have to lose a lot of length! Remember, your hair grows about 1/2" per month, so even if I cut 1/4" of an inch, you're still ahead of the game!
Sometimes, the colors we rocked during the summer just don't suit winter. Why? Well, the light in the sky is different, not to mention the fact that it gets dark so much earlier! You may find that the haircolor that looked radiant in the summer sun, and with your seasonal tan, just washes you out now, or certainly doesn't do anything to compliment your winter skin tones. Consider coming in for a consultation and service to take a look at some options that may suite you for the winter months, but still look fabulous for all those holiday parties and events!
