Frizzy Hair – Prevent It With A Conditioning Treatment at Smith & Smith Hair Salon in Loughborough
One thing we are always asked about during summer is “how do I prevent my hair from being frizzy?”
Hair becomes frizzy due to a lack of moisture at the roots of the hair, which is very common on hot summer days. To prevent frizz, you simply need to put moisture back into hair, with a hydrating treatment at Smith & Smith Hair Salon.
Our stylists are trained to analyse your hair’s needs and, whether your frizz is genetic or a result of the visible effects of hair damage or humidity, suggest a system of anti-frizz products with organic botanicals like the Paul Mitchell® Clean Beauty Smooth Collection. Enriched with organic, cold-pressed almond oil and hyaluronic acid, these products help smooth the hair cuticle and calm frizz for silky smooth, more manageable locks.
How To Protect Your Hair From Chlorine Damage
Before taking a dive into a cool pool this summer, you need to ensure that your hair is well protected against the damaging effects of chlorine. Chlorine can cause your hair to be dry and more susceptible to breakage and is well known to fade hair colour, even turning blonde hair green!
If you’re a swimmer, Paul Mitchell® Shampoo Three® deep cleans hair and removes the chlorine, iron and minerals that can give hair a greenish tint. It also washes away dulling build up, strengthens strands and minimizes future build up of products and dirt.
We advise wearing a swimming cap when in the pool as it is the only way to prevent chlorine in the water from damaging your hair, there are plenty of fashionable swimming caps available on the High Street. We also recommend using a chlorine-removing shampoo such as Paul Mitchell Shampoo Three to wash hair, ask your Smith & Smith stylist for advice on repairing chlorine damaged hair.
Prevent Your Hair Colour From Fading This Summer
Your hair colour can fade more quickly in the sun, so to prevent this, use shampoos and conditioners that are designed to enhance and protect your hair colour.
We recommend the Color Protect® range from Paul Mitchell, to gently cleanse and protect colour-treated hair while hydrating, strengthening and boosting shine. The range contains plant extracts to help shield harmful UVA and UVB rays while special conditioners keep every strand moisturised. The leave in Color Protect Locking Spray is an amazing product which keeps hair colour bright, ensuring that it doesn’t fade, whilst providing intense UV protection and add shine.
If you have a hair colour appointment booked in before your holiday, visit our hair salon in Loughborough for an OLAPLEX treatment to protect and strengthen your hair.
To be extra safe of course, wear a hat on a hot summer’s day – protective and stylish – although if this isn’t possible, wearing a top knot or braided hair style could work.
