FREEWELL FOUNDER TIPS VOL. 1 WITH SHANDI NICHELLE

WELCOME TO FREEWELL FOUNDER TIPS, A SERIES OF POSTS FULL OF INFORMATION TO HELP YOU TO ACHIEVE YOUR HEALTHIEST HAIR YET

I'm Shandi, the founder of Freewell. Today’s post is all about helping you fight your hair woes with little tricks I have discovered in my 16 years of doing hair and working with thousands of people like you.

Tip 1: Regularly clean out your hair dryer filter. If you don't do this, it can cause your dryer to overheat and singe your hair every time you use it. 

Tip 2: Cancel, your clarifying shampoo subscription. Clarifying shampoo may seem like a good idea, but it strips your hair of all the good stuff and leaves you with super clean dried-out strands. I recommend shampooing 2x with a nourishing shampoo for a cleaner feel without the quick fix damage. 

Tip 3: Skip the protein. Protein may be good for your body but it's not great for your hair. The over-use of protein-rich products can result in over-proteinized strands, causing hair to break. I recommend protein "dosing" instead and only do a treatment as needed (due to chemical damage or as advised by your stylist). I love Power Gloss because it has no protein so I can deep condition my hair any time, for up to 24 hours, and not worry about damaging my hair—and so can my customers and clients.

I recommend using Power Gloss once a week. Leave the product in your hair for at least one hour.
