Hair Conditioner: Ticket to a Molecular Makeover
Your hair’s sure to feel silkier once your stylist conditions it—learn why with Groupon’s close-up look at conditioner.
Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer—the cuticle—is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules, called cationic surfactants, to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair—the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)
The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
A Chat with Kim McEntire at Sola Salons
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I have worked professionally with Paul Mitchel for several years and certified with Redken as well as other licensed color lines. I have taken extra educational classes to make my client leave the salon with the most professional cut in the valley. I rent a 5 star suite to back my 5 star service.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have had a passion to do hair my whole life and pursued my career 2008. I have pushed through the salon/beauty bussiness and landed my name at a 5 Star Suite. I inspire many people in the beauty field and work around a lot of inspirational people that help me drive hard for my goals.
What do you love most about your job?
I love getting up every morning knowing that I get to make people pretty and happy. I feel that my job is not a job, because I love what I do, I get to meet amazing people on the way to share life stories and make life friendships that I would not trade for the world.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
One of the many feedbacks I have recieved was, "I left the salon and someone stopped me to tell me how nice my hair looks, how shinny it is and they ask who the amazing stylist was." They come and visit me and get nothing but the same great service that I supplied to a regular client.
