Is Your Hair Distressed?
Autumn is here, which means colder weather is coming soon. Our hair goes through changes with the seasons just like our skin. And with ever season bring different challenges.
During the summer, our hair takes a beating. The sun, chlorine, and saltwater can damage hair. So after all that fun from the summer months, this season means it's time to change your hair care routine, get a good trim, and maybe change up your color.
This is my FAVORITE time of year! I LOVE the pumpkin spice, leaves changing, bon fires, and hot cocoa sipping. But as much as I love it, it does bring some challenges for your hair. Just as hair needs sun screen and strength builders in the summer, hair needs moisture in the cooler months to fight frizz and static. Add this to your weekly routine to keep your tresses looking gorgeous and healthy. Another easy way to nourish your hair is by only shampooing 2-3 times a week to keep those essential oils on the scalp and in the hair. But I know a lot of clients that say they " I just have to shampoo daily!" Truth is, you are stripping your hair and scalp of those essential oils that naturally moisturize your scalp and hair.
At my salon, my stylists and I have reviewed several products to help you in your quest for beautiful, strong, moisturized hair. Your texture, level of dryness, or damage will determine what products you need to recover the much needed moisture. Your stylists can help you decide what type you have and what you need.
First up is Color Proof's Super Rich line of products. The shampoo and conditioner have light weight moisture that will help with hydration and shine. 96% Color retention after 10 washes is another added benefit. The Super Rich Mask is another favorite in this line. We recommend using this once a week to help fight frizz and static. We also love their Super Rich Split End Mender. This product will fuse your frayed ends back together through ionic linkage to help heal broken fibers. Use before styling to help your finished look to have a more polished look.
Second up for review is Keune Hair Cosmetics. This product line is one we use in our salon. They have a variety of products designed for what your scalp and hair may need during this time of year. Vital Nutrition shampoo, conditioner, and mask are wonderful at giving a boost of moisture. With a blend of 5 essential minerals, it penetrates deep into your hair to form a protective shield in and around it, restoring your locks for a soft and shiny result. If you have normal to fine hair, and need to repair it from breakage and dryness, then we recommend using their Keratin Smooth line of products. They are infused with Provitamin B5 and Keratin that add shine, protection, and nourishment.
Curly hair can have different needs. Frizz is the number one enemy. Our recommendation is Keune Care Curl Control product line. It contains raspberry seed oil for moisture, Omega 3, 6 and vitamin E for softness. Their shampoo and conditioner help provide bouncy, soft, frizz free curls with gentle cleansing and conditioning.
If you love Joico the way we do, then you will love the Moisture Recovery and Hydra Splash lines. Moisture Recovery is for medium to coarse texture. The Jojoba and Keratin in these products will restore smoothness, elasticity, and add shine.
It won Glamour's 2020 "Best Professional Shampoo + Conditioner". As for Hydra Splash, this line is for fine to medium textures. Coconut Water, Sea Kelp, Rosehip Oil, Arginine, and Keratin will provide 24hr hydration, replenish your moisture, and add shine.
As always, before trying a new product, discuss them with your stylist. If the products are not right for your hair and scalp, then you will not enjoy your experience. And let's face it...it's all about the experiences that make life worth living!
