Fight the Summer Elements

Posted by Bethany in Color, General Info

So here in middle America, we are about to embark on the scariest time of year… for our hair at least.

Summer is a great time of year - we all have more time, the sun stays out longer, summer vacations await us. But this is a dangerous time for those locks you’ve been perfecting all winter.

Here are some tips that can help this be your most beautiful summer ever:

  • Protect your Color. Stock up on color-preserving shampoo and conditioner, and also Hair Sunscreen for vacations and long days out in the sun. All Pureology products have Anti-Fade complex in them, even their styling products, for the maximum in color protection. My Top Two color protectors:
    • Pureology ColourMax This fabulous spray detangler conditions, repairs and protects against thermal styling and UVA/UVB damage.

    • Aveda Color Conserve Sun Protector A color-preserving foam, with sun filters derived from cinnamon bark and wintergreen.

  • Un-Do Pool Damage Swimming laps is great for your body, not so great for your hair. To prevent undue damage from your favorite water activity, make sure you 1) Get your hair wet with clean water before entering the pool. This prevents chlorinated water from soaking into your hair as easily. You can also put in a leave-in conditioner before you swim for protection (the two products above would work great!) 2) Have a proper after-swim routine:
    • Step 1: Detoxify - remove chlorine as soon as possible w/ a clarifying shampoo like Pureology’s Purify or Aveda’s Hair Detoxifier.

    • Step 2: Replenish Put moisture and protein back into the hair with a deep conditioner like Pureology’s HydraCure or L’Oreal Professionnel’s Absolut Repair Masque

  • Smooth those Frizzies! Even those of us with the slightest wave can feel the effects of humidity on our hair. Those who have lots of curl have a lot of hair on their hands when that hot, humid air comes mid-summer. Depending on your amount of frizz control needs, there are several options:
    • Light - Seal and Smooth Using a smoothing serum or a humidity-blocking hairspray might be all you need to keep your hair looking fresh and beautiful if you have a slight frizz problem.
      • Aveda Light Elements Smoothing Fluid - A fluid styling formula that adds shine and movement as it restores a healthy look and feel to hair.

      • L’Oreal Professionnel Infinium Hairspray Ultra fast drying, satin shine and weightless frizz defense with maximum humidity protection. (Available in regular, strong, or extreme hold)

    • Medium to Strong- Perfect Your Blowdry In addition to using the products above, drying your hair well helps fight the frizz. Make sure you take small sections and use a 100% boar-bristle brush - not metal! If desired, smooth ends with a flat iron to seal down the cuticle for humidity protection.
    • Brushes:

      Flat Iron (My favorite is the CHI):

    • Extreme - Consider a Smoothing or Straightening Treatment When your hair is causing you more grief than joy, it’s time to think about a more long-term solution. I offer a range of smoothing services, from just a soft smoothing, to perfectly straight hair. Treatments typically last 4-6 months. Call the salon to make an appointment for a consultation - 314.721.4230.

(all products mentioned are available at Dominic Michael Salon in Clayton, Missouri.)

Have a Beautiful Summer everyone!!
