Transition Your Hair from Winter to Spring

As winter comes to an end in Minnesota, we’re looking ahead to spring. And just like the change in seasons means a change in routine, wardrobe and lifestyle, it also necessitates a change in hair care. Read on for a few tips from Good Housekeeping on transitioning your hair care routine from winter to spring.


Get a Trim

Even if you’ve taken extra care to keep your hair hydrated and protected from the dry winter air, you probably have a few split ends to deal with. Snip off the dead ends for extra body and to improve your hair’s overall health.

Switch Shampoo

If you used a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner during the winter, consider switching to a formula for normal hair for spring and summer. Hair with too much moisture can get frizzy and hard to manage.

Invest in a Serum

If your hair tends to get frizzy in the warmer months, look into an anti-frizz serum. Apply before blow-drying to help seal and smooth the hair cuticle, protecting it from damage and improving your final look. Don’t apply serums to the roots of the hair – doing so will weigh hair down and make it look greasy.

Lighten Up

There are more hours in the day now, so why not add a bit more sunniness to your hair? Ask your stylist for a few subtle highlights to match the spring weather.

Try Low-Maintenance Looks

In preparation for those inevitable spring rains, have some easy hairstyles at the ready. Consider a low ponytail or a loose top knot. Not only will these styles hold up in the rain, but they’ll save your hair from a day of heat and styling.

Are You Suffering from Naturally Thinning Hair?

Causes and Treatment for Naturally Thinning Hair


As we get older, we may find ourselves with the unfortunate realization that our hair is thinning. This is a natural process that we can slow down or tend to, but will ultimately happen. Here are a few causes for your thinning hair.

Stress: A traumatic event such as a major surgery, physical illness, death of a loved one or a recent divorce can cause many changes to your physical health. The stress sends a shock to a large percent of hair follicles into a resting phase, halting production. Once the hair returns to a growing phase, once you are feeling better, new hair grows and pushes the old hair out. This will cause thinning, as your old hair falls out and you are waiting for the new hair to grow to your normal length.

Diet: If you are deprived of Vitamins and nutrients, especially Vitamin B and iron, your hair growth and health will be deprived. If you are consuming too much fat, this will also impede on the ability of your hair to get the maximal oxygen and nutrients that it needs.

Hormones/Aging: Pregnancy, birth control pills, hormone therapy or thyroid problems can also affect your hair growth and thinning. As you age, each strand shrinks in diameter, which changes thee overall volume. Our DNA is programmed to cause a percentage of hair follicles to shrink and either make smaller, thinner strands of hair at a much slower rate, or stop making hairs altogether.

Whether you have control over these events or not, there are products and treatments available to treat and remedy your thinning hair.

3 Products That Will Strengthen And Condition Your Thinning Hair

small_2332533245Earlier this week we talked about how to cleanse your hair and scalp and rejuvenate hair growth with Hair Support shampoo.  This week, I want to continue talking about products from Hair Support.  Did you know that there is even more you can do for thicker, fuller hair than just switching shampoos?  If you want to ramp up your hair growth, you’ll want to read about these three products that will strengthen and condition your thinning hair.

Thinning hair easily breaks off, becomes dry, and grows slowly.  The root cause of this is, in fact, in the roots.  When the oil glands in your scalp become clogged, it damages the follicles, thus preventing new hair growth at the end of the natural life cycle of the follicle.  Hair Support formulated three additional products to use in addition to their shampoo to help strengthen hair, cleanse the scalp, and stimulate hair growth:

  • Hair Support Restructuring Conditioner – a light and natural restructuring conditioner for the scalp and hair.  This conditioner by Hair Support retains moisture, restores balance and manageability to thinning, damaged hair.
  • Hair Support Overnight Scalp Treatment – a Patented, at home, non-greasy treatment gentle enough to be used daily.  This overnight treatment penetrates deeply into the hair follicles to remove harmful dirt and oil build-up, emulsifying layers of sebum from the scalp, revealing potential hair that may have been dormant.
  • Hair Support Hair Vitamins – this 100% natural one-a-day capsule containing no animal products provides all of the necessary nutrients needed for stimulating hair growth.  Clients have said that their at home treatment results have accelerated when they have taken one capsule per day.

You can get Hair Support products at DK International, located in Chanhassen, MN.  Contact us today for your free, one-hour consultation to see if Hair Support products are right for you and the type of hair loss you’re experiencing.  Connect with us on Facebook and share this blog with the people you know who may be experiencing preventable, reversible, thinning hair.

How To Create The Perfect Environment For Thicker, Fuller Hair

hairmaxIf you’ve found that the residue of hair care products is causing your hair loss, you may be wondering what you can do to safely cleanse your hair and scalp.  Using shampoo may be necessary for clean and shiny hair, but is it worth it if it causes you to lose your hair?  Many people with this concern have turned to Hair Support products.  In this blog I want to talk about how incorporating Hair Support into your daily routine can create the perfect environment for longer, thicker, and healthier hair.


The use of hair product is necessary, however if they’re causing your hair loss it can leave you wondering what your options are.  Hair Support is the best product on the market for daily use for people with thinning hair.  Hair Support offers a regular shampoo and one for color treated hair.  Both cleanse and revitalize the scalp.  Satisfied customers have reported that their hair never tires of the shampoo, which can happen over time with other products as they build up on the hair and scalp.  Hair Support shampoo is different from regular shampoos in that it loosens buildup and debris that clog the oil glands that are harming the follicles.  Once those oil glands are unclogged, the follicle is healthy again and can return to its natural lifecycle.  Hair Support shampoos are safe, contain no medications or any animal derived products. 


Hair Support products aren’t available everywhere.  Luckily, DK International is a retailer of this amazing product.  Now that you know the benefits of this shampoo, call us to schedule your free one-hour consultation to see if Hair Support is right for you.  If you know someone who is concerned about their hair care products damaging their scalp, share us with them by “liking” our Facebook page.
