When You Change Your Hair For Summer

Some of my clients favorite beauty traditions is getting their hair brightened in preparation for summer months. The physical shift never fails to get them excited for cookouts, picnics, and longer days, but they have experienced a mental shift when it comes to maintaining it. While it’s easy for me to see the hours spent at the hair salon as the start-to-finish of their hair coloring process, it’s really just the first step in maintaining healthy, beautiful hair for summer. Here are some idea’s to keep your hair color in top condition.

Bleach breaks down your hair, making it brittle and dry so stay away from protein hair care lines. Although purple and blue shampoos have recently become a popular method of keeping blonde highlights from turning brassy, they can still strip color from your hair. And it can also make you blonde hair color look ashy. Use a color treated shampoo and conditioner.

And just because one brand works for someone else, does not necessarily mean it’ll work as well for yours. So shop around and have a few different hair care lines in your shower.

In general, I recommend switching up your shampoo every 6 to 12 months. Each shampoo has different minerals and proteins so your hair will get a more well-rounded treatment of both when you rotate the brand you’re using.

When it comes to heat-styling your hair, go easy on the strands near your hairline by using a lower heat setting. When you lighten your hair, your strands actually become finer and more fragile. To avoid breakage, don’t run that flatiron over your lightened hair multiple times  (in fact, I highly recommend not using a flatiron if possible and just using a curling iron or wand). If you really need one, try doing a single pass for those hairs that frame your face.

A fresh cut or color is the perfect opportunity to switch up your makeup—I’ve HAVE clients gravitating towards a bold red lip color, as it makes their face look even brighter with their blonde hair! And switch up your outfits as a white top will always make your hair look brighter, and vice versa.  The biggest change I notice in MY  clients after they get their hair colored is how their mood and demeanor immediately lifts—embrace your new hair color and the confidence it gives you!

Great Detangler For Trips To The Beach Or Home.

Joseph Kellner SalonSummer time is here and you cannot wait to go to the beach. But something should be in your beach bag and that is Victoria’s Secret Leave In Spray Conditioner.  This is a jewel of a product and I use it in the salon after every shampoo before cutting the hair. It comes at a good price of only $10.00 and is extremely a reliable product.  For short to medium hair I would recommend 4-5 pumped sprays of the product. And remember to always hold the product about 12 inches from the hair. Or you will over saturate it. For longer hair and over processed spray only on the ends and comb through.  And always use a wide tooth comb to comb out the tangles in your hair. Never us a brush for it will break the hair.  This is a lightweight conditioner that detangles and quenches dry, parched hair and eliminates frizz and flyaway’s. Try it out the next time you go to the beach our use it for and of your styling cocktails.  Good product for salon use and also home personnel use. Give it a try.
