The color of our hair is important to a lot of us. For some, it’s the way we single ourselves out as individuals. A head full of curly red hair can passed down like a family heirloom. And some of us rely on hair dye to conceal gray hair.

Many of us dye our hair to get that special color: the hair color that makes you feel unique, the color that brings out your eyes, the one that shaves 15 years off of you.

But anyone who has dyed their own hair knows that it is not always a carefree task. Harsh chemicals threaten to damage your hair and scalp. It irritates sensitive skin. And if you don’t know what you’re doing, brace yourself for the likely possibility of a bad hair day.

Jodie Moore knows all about the ups and downs with hair dye, as Chief Operating Officer of the exclusive distributor for Herbatint hair color, Bioforce USA.

Not only has she proudly advocated for this B Corp certified brand for the past 15 years, but she also has personal experience with all the ups and downs of dyeing hair. Her passion for hair color has led to Herbatint becoming one of the most highly respected and best-selling hair color brands in the natural industry.

Jodie joins Just Ask David to lend us a few tips on dyeing and maintaining hair.

Safe AND Effective: A Balancing Act

Just Ask David has always been ahead of the game when it comes to the shift toward safe ingredients within the beauty industry.

But even we are a little stumped when it comes to safe hair dye.

Many of the natural hair dyes on the market are frustratingly weak. No one wants to buy an entire box of hair dye that will just wash out in a few days.

Jodie’s advice? “It’s really about balance.” You don’t want your hair dye to have harsh chemicals, yet you want a significant change in the color of your hair that will last. Something has to give.

“You want it to work so there will be some level of chemical in the color. So what consumers like yourself and other people really need to do is find that safest product.” She adds: “Herbatint is the only brand in the world that has been dermatologically tested [as safe] for sensitive skin.”

Good to know.

Tips for Dyeing Your Hair At Home, Accident-Free!

Dyeing your hair at home may not be rocket science, but it IS chemistry.

Such a drastic change to your hair can be nerve-wracking on its own. But the threat of going into work the next day with bright red hair puts a lot more pressure on those of us going the DIY route.

“The biggest thing about doing hair at home is following directions and really understanding the product that you’re using,” Jodie suggests. She also says that using natural hair dyes like Herbatint pretty much eliminates the risk of a no-good-very-bad hair day.

Why? What’s so different about natural hair dye? “There’s no lift in the product,” Jodie says.

“In a normal salon setting, or even a mass market brand, you can go brown to blond in a box… with the natural colors, there’s so little amount of chemical – usually less than 1%. There’s no lift,” she explains.

“So you’re really going to have to stay within two shades of your natural color. So that can take a lot of the anxiety out of doing it. You’re not going to go too drastic one way or another.”

Fight the Frizz! With Special Guest Dana Wood

Nothing encourages us to go outside and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air like the summertime. On the same note, nothing ruins your hairstyle faster than that sweltering summer humidity.

But you don’t have to let the summer be a never-ending bad hair day. Beauty blogger Dana Wood of Florida Beauty Problems returns to Just Ask David to share tips on taming your coif this summer, even when the weather feels like a clothes dryer stopped in mid-cycle.

Dana’s blog teaches readers how to deal with all the health and beauty issues that come up when you’re living the swampy coastal state of Florida, like treating bug bites, protecting your skin from the sun, and – you guessed it – dealing with epic frizz.

Dana Wood is also a three-time Conde Nast Beauty Director (W, Cookie and Brides) and regularly contributes to media outlets like The New Post and The Wall Street Journal.

Why Does My Hair Get Frizzy (and Why Doesn’t Anyone Else’s)?

Poofy hair is a lot more common than you may think, especially during the summer.

Trust us. You’re not the only one.

But it is true that some people are much more prone to frizz than others. What’s the deal – is there some kind of hair product you’re not using?

“Frizz prone hair is very porous, so it needs moisture. When the humidity starts spiking, it kind of soaks it up and that’s what makes it puffy,” Dana explains. “Even people with fine hair can have this issue,” she adds.

How to Defrizz Without Damaging Your Hair

Okay, we know heat is bad for hair. But seriously, what else are you supposed to do if you can’t combat the frizz with a flat-iron straightener or blow dryer?

But Dana says that’ll set you up for even worse frizz down the road.

“I really think the whole issue of heat styling is a vicious cycle,” she says. “But there’s no question that intense heat really does smooth the cuticle of the hair.”

As a Floridian, being at the mercy of constant humidity is just part of the day-to-day grind for Dana.

So what does she recommend to tame the frizz without the heat?

“I go through vats and vats of deep conditioner because really, it’s a huge help,” Dana says.

Sunkissed, Not Sundried: How to Protect Your Skin & Hair This Summer

Sunkissed, Not Sundried: How to Protect Your Skin & Hair This Summer

The summertime is brutal on skin and hair. Between lounging under the sun and heading to the pool every day, we’re lucky to still have skin and hair at all!

On this educational segment of Just Ask David, health expert Lisa Davis and beauty guru David Pollock dish out a few tips on how to protect and maintain your skin and hair even if you hit the beach every single day until the summer ends.

Beat the Heat!

Sunscreen, a hat with a visor, and sunglasses are your best friends during the sunny summer months – for children especially.

And FYI, don’t be fooled into thinking that you don’t need sunscreen because you’re not outside very much.

That summer sun can do noticeable damage even through your windows, so make sure to keep a bottle of sunscreen handy at all times.

Don’t Be the Fool of Your Neighborhood Pool

If the pool is your designated hangout spot during the summer, you know how rough the chemicals in the pools can be on your skin and hair.

Good news: chlorine-green hair and wrinkly skin don’t have to be part of your daily pool attire anymore!

But seriously, anyone who’s swam their way through a few pools knows that those harsh chemicals do more than make you smell funny.

The chlorine strips the moisture from your skin and hair, leaving hair brittle and skin drier than chalk.

But not to worry: David and Lisa have tips on how to protect your skin and hair even while you’re in the pool!

3 Ways to Keep Your Hair Healthy this Summer (Plus MORE Hair Care Tips!) With Special Guest Oscar Blandi

3 Ways to Keep Your Hair Healthy this Summer (Plus MORE Hair Care Tips!) With Special Guest Oscar Blandi

You can’t talk about celebrity hair without talking about Oscar Blandi.

Hailing from Italy, Oscar Blandi’s eponymous, iconic New York salon was opened shortly after he moved to America about 20 years ago.

Since then, he’s obtained an A-list clientele, featuring the likes of Jessica Alba, Jimmy Fallon, and Naomi Watts. His work has been featured in countless fashion magazines, including Vogue, Elle, Esquire, and many more!

Oscar Blandi stands out from most other hairstylists for one reason. In his own words: “I’ve been an innovator for this long because I believe in education.”

This time, he’s educating us on a few different ways we can protect our hair this summer. Come fall, your hair will still have that summer vacation glow!

Sunkissed Locks, not Chlorine Green

The summertime is when we go to the nearest beach, play with our kids in the pool, and generally soak up the sun.

We KNOW you’re slathering on sunscreen every time you leave the house, especially during the sunny summer months.

But your hair can sustain a damage, too. The sun’s rays, the chemicals in a swimming pool – these things can dry out your hair and leave it brittle.

“I always tell every client, treat your hair like you treat your skin,” Oscar says. “In the summer, it becomes much hotter. So make sure you’re constantly moisturizing your hair.”

Some of us don’t like moisturizing our hair because it sometimes weighs it down and makes it lose some of its body. But Oscar says it’s important to moisturize anyway. Unhealthy hair won’t hold much body, either.

“A lot of people… think that conditioner is not good because it makes their hair flat,” Oscar adds. “Your hair will go flat no matter what. The conditioner helps to moisturize your hair so it won’t become brittle, it won’t break.”

Is Laser Hair Removal Worth It? With Special Guest Ani Palen

Is Laser Hair Removal Worth It? With Special Guest Ani Palen

For some of us, shaving is a nightmare. Nicks and ingrown hairs become a fact of life. We’re forever chasing that leg stubble or five o’clock shadow.

Laser hair removal is an alternative approach that has been around for a long time. But make no mistake – laser hair removal is a lot different than it was 10, even 5 years ago.

Beauty editor Ani Palen joins another segment of Just Ask David to give us the inside scoop on laser hair removal – the good and the bad.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

When you hear the phrase “laser hair removal,” it doesn’t exactly sound like a day at the spa. But that doesn’t mean that it’s scary or painful, either.

So what’s actually going on when we get laser hair removal treatment?

“The way the lasers work is that they damage the hair follicles under the skin’s surface, which stunts future growth,” Ani says. “They pick up on the pigment of the hair. So for example, if you have gray, red, or blond hair, your results may not be as drastic. But you can still get results.”

Speaking of results, what should you expect after a treatment?

“Laser hair removal is technically more like laser hair reduction, but that shouldn’t make anyone shy away from it,” Ani explains. “After each treatment, you tend to see a 12-13% reduction in hair. It takes 4-5 treatment to get your full results. After that, maybe a touch-up or two every year.”

The Latest in Laser Hair Removal Technology

Since laser hair removal has been around for so long, you’ve probably already heard of its biggest shortcomings. For one, it’s known that laser hair removal isn’t ideal for people with dark skin.

“Before is used to be if you had really dark skin, [laser treatment] was not really something you could’ve done because it could leave you scarred and not really be effective,” Ani explains. “But these days because of great technology, anybody with the right laser could do laser hair removal.”

The last thing we’re all dying to know – does it hurt?

“If you somewhere that has the latest lasers and is really up-to-speed on all of that, it’s pretty much pain-free,” Ani reassures us. “Especially if you’re used to waxing or other alternative methods of hair removal.”
