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.
