Sunscreen for the skin, face and hair!

Have you ever worn your hair with a part and been outside in the sun all day, forgetting to apply sunscreen and ending up with a nasty burn? (Don't worry you aren't the only one!)

How about gone outside on a cloudy day thinking that it's just an hour and it won't be too much sun?

The best is when you love to drive with your sunroof open but can't figure out just why your hair color especially on the left side keeps fading. 

WELCOME to SUMMER :)

Here's a few tips and tricks for you:

To protect you hair color in the sun there's a few things:

When swimming, apply a leave in conditioner prior to jumping in the pool or ocean. Apply it and braid your hair or put it in a bun then enjoy swimming while not destroying your hair! 

Deep Condition after prolonged time in the water! Let it sink into your hair for a good 10-20 minutes for extra moisture and protection.

Utilize a color-protecting spray such as the Aveda Sun Care Spray. It's amazing at keeping your color exactly the color you started with!

For your skin there are many options to think of such as:

Loading up on a great sunscreen. Don't forget your neck and ears though!

Utilizing a tinted moisturizer with a strong SPF. Several of our stylists LOVE Aveda's Tinted moisturizers because they give a strong pigment while blocking out the sun. Great to protect you from aging, sunburns and it gives your skin an even glow!

Wearing a hat AFTER applying sunscreen everywhere!

Most importantly, remember to reapply!!

 

We hope this gives you a few tips and tricks to help you these summer months. Stay Cool!

Summer Hair

The sun is FINALLY shining, it's getting warmer and we finally can tell it's SUMMER!

 

What better way to celebrate than with some fun new summer hair color!

Did you know there's a million ways to brighten and freshen your hair color while staying low maintenance? 

Remember these few tips for summer hair health:

* Before swimming in any water, wet your hair down completely with tap water. We suggest taking some daily hair repair or shampure conditioner and work it through your wet hair and then place your hair in a topknot or a braid. It will keep it conditioning while you are having fun in the sun and protect if from tangles, sun and water damage.

* Deep conditioning more frequently will help protect your hair from more mechanical damage and environmental damage. Summer time, we tend to flat iron more to keep our hair smoother and less frizzy and in turn, we cause more breakage issues. Using Smooth Infusion Masque or Damage Remedy Mask will help to alleviate the frizz issues and remedy split ends. 

*Clarify your hair after swimming with the right shampoo. Remember that many clarifying shampoos are not color-safe and strip your hair of your color and also strips you of all your natural oils. We highly suggest the Sun Care line for summer hair. It helps remove chlorine and mineral build up, rebalance dry scalp and keep your color safe!

*Use Sunscreen!! Remember places like tops of your ears, your part line in your hair and your neckline. Many people are already complaining of sunburns on their part especially when wearing braids which are a major trend this summer. Keep yourself protected from the sun's harm!
