Today, we come together to express our gratitude, celebrate her accomplishments, and wish her a splendid journey as she pursues her dreams in the medical profession.

Clarifying and detoxifying are two distinct hair care processes:

🌿 Clarifying shampoos are designed to remove product buildup, excess oils, and residue from styling products.
🌀 They work by opening the cuticles of the hair to cleanse and clarify, but they are not typically effective at removing mineral deposits.
👍 Useful for those dealing with product buildup or oily hair.
Detoxifying :
💧 Detoxifying shampoos are specifically formulated to remove mineral deposits, such as those caused by hard water or chlorine.
🔗 They contain ingredients that bind to minerals and remove them from the hair.
🏊‍♂️ Ideal for individuals who have hard water in their area or swimmers dealing with chlorine-damaged hair.

In summary, clarifying shampoos focus on removing product and oil buildup, while detoxifying shampoos are designed to tackle mineral deposits on the hair. The choice between them depends on your specific hair care needs.
Don't forget to consult with your trusted Che'mel Styles expert to determine which option is best suited for your hair's current needs. They'll provide valuable insights and guidance to keep your locks looking their finest! 💇‍♀️💁‍♀️ a caption...


🌟 Stylists Amber and Kenzie are honing their skills on short cuts this week, as part of our Workshop Mondays!

🚫🌈The Effect of Coconut Oil Buildup on Hair Color 🚫🌈

Hey color lovers! We want to shed some light on the potential impact of coconut oil buildup on your vibrant hair color. While coconut oil offers various health benefits, it's important to be aware of its potential effects on your color-treated tresses.

🌟 Coconut oil creates a coating barrier on the hair shaft, which can prevent hair dyes from fully penetrating and adhering to the strands. This may result in uneven color or a less vibrant appearance.

🌟 If you regularly use coconut oil as a hair mask or treatment without properly cleansing it out before coloring, residue buildup may interfere with the hair dye process and affect the final result.

🌟 Additionally, some individuals may experience allergic reactions or sensitivity to coconut oil, resulting in scalp irritation and discomfort which may cause you to think you are allergic to all hair color products.

To ensure the best outcome for your hair color, it's advisable to avoid using coconut oil directly on your hair. Prioritize thoroughly cleansing your hair to remove any trace of oil or residue before undergoing the coloring process.

Remember, every hair type is unique, and it's best to consult with a professional colorist to tailor your hair care routine and maintain your vibrant hues.
