So Summer is here! And the work on the new Salon in Dorking is really progressing, won't be long now before we can move in!
Meanwhile I thought this month I could share my summer haircare tips!
So wether your on an exotic beach, at a festival or enjoying the British summer soaking up the rays in the garden or park, here's my tips to keep your hair healthy and happy.
Love your colour - stay hydrated
The Sun will lighten your hair colour. We all know what it does to our skin, and our hair is no different, it needs protection and re-hydrating or simply to be covered up. My choice of haircare products is Milkshakehairuk. This range is so varied for different hair types and a suncare range. By using a professional haircare system your hair colour will fade less and you can protect it, this is because of the ingredients in these products including the milk and honey proteins.
If you love swimming in the pool or the sea, just be mindful that this can dry your hair out - chlorine will fade your colour and leave a deposit in your hair as it is a chemical, it is essential to use a purifying shampoo to remove this and keep the ph level balanced in your hair - chlorine can turn blondes green! If you're swimming on a regular basis wear a swim hat. Salt water will also dry your hair out so a deep continuing mask that evening will help rejuvenate and maintain your hairs' hydration.
There's nothing worse than a burnt scalp, I once did this watching a long match at Wimbledon tennis and learned my lesson - if you know your going to be exposed in the sun for a long time wear a hat or cover up with a scarf - even putting your hair up loosely will protect your scalp and completely block the sun.
Want that sun-kissed look?
Of course I can do that for you using my lovely milkshake colour range but if you have natural hair and want to do this yourself I've always recommended a fresh lemon carefully squeezed through the hair whist sunbathing to brighten your hair naturally giving sun-kissed tones through your hair, be careful of your eyes though as the lemon can really sting! Another lesson I've learned! Book for a free consultation on sun-kissed looks for this summer.
Thought for the month #enjoythesun 💛
