The Hushed Secret

The golden rule to keep your hair healthy is not to wash it every day. That’s right, washing your hair every day is actually doing more damage than what you think. You may be thinking to yourself that your hair may become greasy right away and look unpresentable but we have a secret weapon for you… Dry Shampoo! This will be your best friend; you will love it and want it by your side all the time. You simply spray it onto your roots, shake it around and it will absorb the oils in a flash. We sell an amazing and affordable dry shampoo, TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo.  You should give it a chance, it may be hard to change your hair washing routine but it will benefit you and your hair in the long run. 

Autumn is for jumping into a big pile of weaves!

With the leaves starting to change, you may feel inspired for a little change as well.  Blew has the perfect recipe to satisfy that urge….  Aqua Tape-In Extensions!!!  We have been obsessed with these extensions for the past year and have been able to create amazing color transformations without any permanent altering. The fabulous part about these extensions is how they fit into your life so easily! You can still straighten or curl them; they act just like real hair… because they are!  They’re made from the finest remi hair. The process of putting them in is easy as pie. We simply take a strand of your hair and sandwich it in between 2 pieces of the extension and that’s that! It can’t get any easier, though taking them out is just as effortless. We have a gentle adhesive remover that makes the tape slip right out without damaging your precious hair. All three of our hairstylists are qualified to put them in, so call us today and start the fall right!

Squeaky Clean for the Start of Summer

As the season changes over to summer your hair is going to be put through some stress. Before the humidity and the beating sun starts up, give your hair some TLC. Here at Blew we recommend this great at home remedy. The best part of this hair recipe is that you can find the ingredients right in your own kitchen, all you need is baking soda and either white or apple cider vinegar.

Step 1)

                The first part of this process is the baking soda. You want to take 2 or 3 tablespoons of the baking soda and about 3 times that of water; you want to make a paste like texture.  Rub it throughout your hair and let it set for about 4 minutes. Rinse it with cool water and you are ready for the apple cider vinegar!

Step 2)

                After you rinse the paste you will want to mix 1 part white or apple cider vinegar with 4 parts water. A good idea to keep the stink of the vinegar out of your hair is to mix in a little lavender. This way your hair will look beautiful and smell delicious. Run it throughout your hair and be careful to not get any in your eyes! To finish rinse with cool water, the cool water will hold in the moisture in and give you a great shine.

Follow these steps so your summer will start out with stunning hair!

Summer Hair Care

How to out shine the sun; follow these tips. 

 

As much as we love summer, summer isn’t always our friend. From the sunshine, to the chlorine, to the humidity; our hair is being damage throughout the season. Follow these tips and you will have gorgeous healthy hair once fall starts.

1)  Make sure you have a good conditioner! With the brutal summer heat, your hair is bound to dry out. Give your hair some love in the shower and buy a nice moisturizing conditioner. A great conditioner that we carry in the salon is the Moisture Conditioner by Biomega. This conditioner is great because it helps with frizzy damaged hair and gives it a healthy shine afterwards.

2) When going swimming in the pool try putting a leave-in conditioner in your hair. This is a good way to protect your hair because your spongy locks are soaking in the chemicals and drying it out.  

3)Try going for a natural beachy wave look this summer. With the harsh heat your hair doesn’t need any more heat added to it. Leave the blow dryer and all the heating tools out of your routine this season, and try our Aquage Sea Salt Texturizing spray.

4) Last but not least remember your ends; they need some TLC as well. With all the damage it’s being put through your ends will split a lot quicker. Trim them every 8 weeks so at the end of the summer you have beautiful luscious hair.  

Here at Blew we carry many products that can help you throughout this season. One of our product brands, Aquage has a line called SeaExtend which has a Thermal-V Complex and this helps block out heat and with the sun beating down onto you these products will help you out.  One of the products, the Silkening Oil treatment, is a great little pick me up for your hair. It helps restores moisture and gives you a nice shine; it’s also locks in your color for a longer lasting result. 

Come in Blew today to get your essential products for this summer.

// This is a box or dye situation //

The biggest no-no of the year is 'do it at home' box dye. We all know how easy it is to do; go to your local grocery store or drug store, pick up a box and have it done in 45 minutes. But have you ever thought about how box dye is the wrong route to go? Box dye is "one size fits all", there's no uniqueness or personality to it. You also need to be careful because some box dyes contain ammonia which can be very damaging to your hair. And when you go to a hair salon you know that its properly being put on and you know the turn out will look amazing.
