Summer is in full swing, which means you’ll be spending much more time outside soaking up the Vitamin D! What you may not be aware of is the damage extended sun exposure can do to your hair. Although summer activities mean a bronzed body, too much sun can also bring about dry, sensitized, and lifeless hair. Why not provide your locks with the right protection? Here are some summer hair care tips:

At Home

Just as your skin needs moisture and SPF, your hair needs celebrated products to maintain its vitality and beauty. Available at your local professional salon are amazing hair care lines designed specifically for sun exposure. From moisturizing leave-in treatments to UV defense masks, you’re sure to be provided the best resistance against this season’s harsh summer sun. Another damaging element in this fun-filled time of year is chlorine contact. Blondes know all too well how repeated trips to the pool can affect your color. Luckily, by implementing solar care into your hair routine you can prevent that extra trip to the salon.

In Salon

For summer hair care, an appointment is recommended every four to six weeks to preserve vibrancy and shine, as well as grooming any additional split ends from extra outdoor wear and tear. Also, do not underestimate the power of a keratin smoothing treatment! These restorative systems work from the inside out to considerably reduce frizz and ease daily styling. Typically, your blow dry time will be cut in half. In fact, many find they enjoy their look air dried, which is a perfect option for those of us spending our summer on Lake Allatoona. So why not treat yourself to a stress-free summer do? Make this summer your most beautiful one yet by protecting your best feature and keeping your color flawless.

My love and passion for the hair industry started when I was very young. I have always felt very fortunate in knowing that being a hair designer/educator was my future. I constantly strive to better educate myself and my design team. Making others look and feel their best is what I strive to achieve. My specialty is hair color, but I love cutting as well. To be the best artist you can, I feel you must be well rounded in all of your skills. That is why I also train other salons across the country in all of L ´Oréal Professionnel color and cutting techniques. I have been privileged to work with the most talented artists in the industry. Thank you for visiting our site and I hope to see you in our salon.
