Musing and happenings from our salons with tips and tricks thrown in!
Summer is here and we are here for summer. It’s our favourite season, from the warm weather and bright colours to the t-shirts and shorts, you name it, we love it. However, this time of year can take a toll on your lovely locks. These top tips will help keep your hair in good condition when the sun hits.
Your hair can get damaged in many different ways during summer; exposure to harmful rays, sweat, sea salt, and chlorine. During summer you might find your hair is drier, limp and just a bit lifeless. We’re here to put an end to it.
Book a haircut, and then keep booking them
It all starts with a good chop. At the start of summer get a haircut and make sure you’re having regular trims throughout the sunny period (or what we get of it anyway!). This will keep your hair in good condition and get rid of those pesky split ends!
Take care of your colour
Take extra care of your colour if you’re going to be sat in the sun. You’ve spent time and money on it, so you don’t want to risk any fading. Buy specialist products that are made for colour-treated hair.
Use conditioner and hair masks
Help restore moisture in your locks by using a quality conditioner that suits your hair type. And if you want a deep conditioning treatment, we love Olaplex’s at home and in salon treatments and Philip Kingsley Elasticizer.
Top tip: if you’re going swimming, you can pop a layer of conditioner on your hair to protect it from chemicals in the pool. Or pick up Philip Kingsley Swimcap which is exactly what it says on the tin!
Go easy on the shampoo
You don’t actually need to shampoo your hair every day, but if you feel the need to, buy a gentle shampoo and focus on your roots, not your ends. It’ll stop you from stripping the nutrients in your hair.
Avoid heat styling
If your hair is already being exposed to heat from the sun, try and give your locks a break from heat styling products. Opt for a cooler temperature when you’re blow-drying and if you just can’t resist it your straighteners or curlers, invest in a good heat protection spray.
SPF… for your hair
Yes, this is a real thing. Your hair needs protecting from the sun, just like your skin does.
Pop a hat on
The sun hasn’t got his hat on, but you should. It’ll protect your head and make you look fabulous. Win win we say!
There we have it ladies! Look after yourself in the sun and put these tips to good use. If you fancy investing in some products, pop in the salon and we can advise what will work well for your hair.
