Are You Being Positive at a Negative Time?

My intent for this blog was to educate you on dandruff… give you tips and tell you about the product we sell in our facility to help with this common problem. Like, how to keep your scalp healthy. Yes, dandruff is more common than you would think!! I completed all my research and had everything outlined. All I had to do is to sit down and write the article. But my heart was led in a different direction.

Since the Corona-virus, formally known as the CoVID-19 pandemic, and mandates put out by our governor and city officials, it’s old news that we closed the doors to our school and services department. We do realize it’s for the betterment of our community and that we all need to do our part in slowing down to spread of this awful virus. It’s hard being positive right now, but we are taking positive action steps for you. Are you being positive at a negative time?

I know one thing, business, and life are about challenges. We live in a world of polarities… ups and downs, good and bad, day and night, cold and warm. With that being said, at this point, we are faced with the challenge of providing the best education for our students and supplying our guests with products they need while we all practice “Social Distancing” to flatten the CURVE! 

Our main focus is on our students and guests. We are right now working on a virtual tour, so YOU don’t have to let your future hang in the balances during this trying time. The Salon Professional Academy of Whitehouse is a Redken Endorsed school and a state-of-the-art facility. All our students are taught under the supervision of licensed instructors. This is the perfect time to invest in your future. Why, you’re asking? Because this is only a moment in time that will pass and you cannot put your future on hold. Be ahead of the game!! What else do you have to right now? And for our guests, we haven’t forgotten you and miss you terribly. We have been working on an online shopping cart where you can purchase the products you need and gift cards for special occasions like birthdays. 

As I end this blog, get rid of the fearful mindset and take action! You can go from fear to empowerment. Stay away from the negativity. While you are doing your part to flatten the curve, create a positive mindset to help you overcome… get up, get dressed, eat right. One of my favorite quotes – “Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.”, Helen Keller. I love this quote because she was an over comer. She had so many reasons not to succeed, but she did. We at TSPA Whitehouse are taking action to make a difference in the community and for our students, our future students, our guests, and future guests. We encourage everyone to always practice good hygiene and keep your momentum. It’s dark! It’s difficult! But you can be an over comer. And, we will see you on the upside of this moment.

Brazilian Blowout

Summer is coming and that means summer heat, vacationing at the beach, lounging by the pool, traveling abroad and even hiking in the mountains. Whatever your travel plans include you don’t want to stress about having to fix your hair. The last thing you want to happen is that you spent hours styling your hair only to have the humidity ruin your hard work. With a Brazilian Blowout, you can ‘Tame the Mane’ and ease the stress of traveling while looking great. 
With all the craze in the media covering Brazilian Blowouts from having harmful chemicals to raving about them with five-star reviews, you are probably intrigued yet on the fence about getting one for yourself. Well, let us fill you in on the latest information for this trending hair treatment and give you tips for products to help you maintain results.
First Thing’s First – What is a Brazilian Blowout? As the name indicates, this hair treatment originated in Brazil circa 2005 before coming to the United States. It can be attributed to Brazil’s humid climate and its largely curly-haired population. It is a professional semi-permanent hair smoothing treatment which typically lasts about three months.
Next – What Will My Hair Look Like After the Treatment? Your hair will have a glass-like sheen, feel soft and hydrated, and look extremely healthy. Not all Brazilian Blowouts are alike, and the outcome largely depends on the technique your stylist uses. Once the treatment is applied, your stylist will seal it by running a flat iron through your hair and the more your stylist straightens, the sleeker the end-result. Be sure to communicate with your stylist so they can help you achieve the look you desire. Anyone could benefit from having this treatment, especially if you have excessively curly hair. Even if you naturally have straight and smooth hair, Brazilian Blowouts will still help your hair become easier to handle over time and dry without any frizz.
What Should I Expect During Treatment? Depending on the thickness and length of your hair, the service generally lasts around 1-2 hours. Your stylist will start the process by shampooing your hair 3 to 4 times to remove product buildup and oil to ensure the treatment adheres to your strands properly. Next, the Brazilian Blowout formula will be applied to sections of your hair from root to tip, ensuring each strand is thoroughly coated. Afterwards, they will begin blow drying and flat ironing to seal in the treatment. Finally, your hair will be rinsed and deep conditioned again before being blow-dried a final time. Typically, we recommend avoiding washing your hair for 48 hours to maximize the lifespan of your treatment.
What Should I Use After Treatment? Your first service comes with a complimentary Brazilian Blowout Anti-Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner. We recommend using these products to maintain the result of your treatment.
Side Effects and Harmful Chemicals? The truth is Brazilian Blowouts have evolved due to awareness and stricter regulations, but it is still a chemical treatment. Here at TSPA Whitehouse, we use high-quality products which ensure you will have the best experience and absolutely love your hair.
