Clogged Hairspray Hacks

Clogged Hairspray Hacks

.If you love hairspray like me, you experienced the sputtering clog.  So annoying when the perfect fine mist is replaced by a drippy, weak and pathetic attempt at a spray. And why do I only get this when I’m in a super hurry.  Sigh.  Ok, but as a hairstylist I’ve learned some quick hacks.

Now there are levels of clog.  It can be an easy nail flick to fix and range up to taking the sprayer apart.  The faster you resolve the situation,  the less severe the resolution is. Kinda like life.

De-clogging hacks below:

Try to use your fingernail or bobby pin to scrape off the dried hairspray from the nozzle opening.  Do this first, before getting the nozzle wet, as dried hairspray is likely to pick off in one piece .

Still clogged? Run hot water and get a cup or bowl to submerge the top of the hairspray.  Soak the hairspray container in the hot water for 5 minutes.  towel the sprayer off and test it.

Still sputtering? remove the top plastic button, it should just click off, and put back into the hot water.  Next look at the tube that supplies the product and aerosol to the actual nozzle.  if you can see it clogged, try poking it with a bobby pin, then rinse with warm water.  Place the nozzle back onto the can and try it.

If after these three steps you don’t have success- I’m going to give you two pieces of advice.

Maybe the can is done. might just be old, or no product left and-

If your hairspray doesn’t dissolve with hot water, do you really want that on your head? Professional hairsprays are designed to be water soluble. You can achieve the strongest of hold with professional products.  Personally I love some Redken hairspray.

Extreme Lengths Primer

The First new Product to introduce is the Extreme Length Prime.  This is a treatment to be used after shampooing with Extreme, left in for 5-15 minutes and then rinsed out.  Weightless condition that is infused with biotin builds strength from roots to tips, helping you achieve maximum length.

The other half of the new duo is the Extreme lengths Sealer.  This innovative product comes ready for business.  You can apply this wet or dry hair.  Target the most distressed parts of your tresses or apply all over.  This formula also utilizes biotin to strengthen hair and add shine.  The unique applicator is a soft brush to help you coat all of the ends and seal them to prevent split ends.  The best time to start this product is right after a trip to your stylist, so ends are fresh and can stay that way.  When it comes to split ends, there is no permanent repair.  But, you can prevent the splits and if there are already some gnarly ends, the sealer can stop them from increasing until you can get those ends dusted.  We all know growing out that “lob” or pixie seems to take forever, so why not go to the extreme to get the length?

Shield Your Hair From The Sun

Shield Your Hair From The Sun

Sunshine Love

Sun Loving can lead to sun loathing.  Chances are, you have been burned before.

The pain, the peeling, and the itch! And that is just your skin. People seldom seem to remember that one’s hair is also in the line of fire.  The sun can damage your hair just like your skin.  Although our skin is a living organ and can repair itself, our hair, sadly, cannot.

sunmg

The UV rays from sun can cause the hair cuticle (the outer layer of the strand) to become brittle.  When this happens, one can notice tangles and frizz.  The sun also robs the hair of moisture.  UV rays cause color change in colored and non-colored hair.

sunhmg

Because our hair can not regenerate, unfortunately once the damage is done, a trim might be the only option. So Blocking the UV rays before you step into the light is a brilliant idea!

Pureology’s Colour Max can protect your hair!

sunermg

Colour Max contains UV filters and Pureology’s AntiFade Complex.  Use Colour Max on dry hair and comb in before you go out in the sun to block free-radical damage.  Also, this protective spray evens out porosity in sun-damaged or hi-lighted hair.  With aromatherapy blend of wild rose and sandalwood, this spray is perfect for summer.

Come in to one of our Disegno locations before you catch some rays and pick up your bottle of Pureology Colour Max.
