Top 5 Things You Learn Working at a Salon

​We asked Ailesh, SASO Social Media & Special Projects Manager, for the top 5 things she has learned while working at a hair salon - this is what she had to say:

#1. We need to stop using drug store products

​Like now… men too… they are evil moisture stripping, scalp and hair drying, colour damaging scams that ruin our hair. Yes the price is enticing but no that doesn’t mean we should be using it.

#2. HEAT PROTECTANT IS LIFE! 

​Not only does it protect your hair (important), it also helps to extend the life of your heat styling and cuts back on the frizz and flyaways!

#3. ​Double shampoo every time you wash your hair.

Weird I know, but it makes a difference in cleansing, softness, and shine! 

 

Now I know I just said double shampoo every time you wash - however you should not be washing your hair every day (secret tip in a tip). “But Ailesh I NEED to wash my hair every day!” - AHA introducing tip:​

 

#4. Co-washing!

​To put it simply, co-washing is the act of washing your hair with just conditioner, so that you aren't stripping your hair and scalp of its natural oils. Many shampoos (cough cough tip #1) are formulated with sulphates- detergents that clean hair thoroughly, which strip the natural oils from the hair strands and leave them prone to breakage. By skipping shampoo in your co-washing regime your hair will stop overproducing oil and balance out it's oil production over time!

#5. Get your coworkers to wash your hair when you’re too tired or lazy to do it…

Sorry this a SASO employee only type of perk! HOWEVER, clients can join our club with a SASO Blowout Membership - you get the hair wash, head massage, plus a blowout + style that lasts for days and days (and days and days with some dry shampoo action)! 

And there you have it - five insider tips you learn working at a hair salon!
