As we're nearing the end of summer and Pumpkin season is quickly approaching, I can bet that your hair is feeling a little parched and over-lightened from the effects of the warm summer sun.
So how do you go about repairing the damage? Here's 4 different things you can do to help heal your hair and bring it back to life.
After spending time in the chlorinated pool or ocean salt-water this summer, there is no doubt that it's time for a detox! Stop into the salon for a Malibu C Crystal Gel treatment to purify your hair from chemicals and minerals that have deposited on your hair, which can leave it feeling sticky, weighed down and brassy. After your treatment, your hair will be shampooed and a deep conditioner will be applied to replenish lost moisture. Clarifying your hair at home once a month is recommended to maintain these results and to rinse away products that may be causing build-up. I recommend Eleven Australia's Deep Clean Shampoo, which cleanses with orange oil and re-hydrates with lavender extract.
Sun, wind, sand and chlorine all have the ability to dry your hair out over time. The best way to re-hydrate your hair is with a deep conditioning treatment such as Eleven Australia's 3 Minute Repair Rinse Out Treatment. It's important for your hair to have a balance of moisture and protein and this treatment has both! Shea butter adds moisture while wheat proteins strengthen and repair the hair. Leave on for 3 minutes for a quick boost of hydration or 10-20 minutes for a serious revival.
Begin repairing your hair from the inside out. Add an Olaplex treatment onto your next color or haircut service. Olaplex is NOT a conditioning treatment. Olaplex works on a molecular level to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. You can use Olaplex to restore compromised hair, or add it to another service to provide the ultimate breakage insurance. Simply ask me to add Olaplex into your color or lightener, or add on a full stand-alone treatment for intense repair. After your treatment, take home No. 3 Hair Perfector to continue repairing at home. Olaplex has also expanded their line to include shampoo, conditioner, and stylers as well.
4. ADD SHINE
Bring your hair back to life with a Redken Shades EQ color gloss or clear shine treatment. Just like a topcoat for your nails, your gloss will help close your cuticle, add strength with wheat proteins, seal in color, and equalize pH and porosity. Hair that shines also looks healthier.
When you're booking your next appointment, remember to add a treatment onto your service. If you're confused about which one is best for you, send me a quick e-mail and we can decide together.
