Summer can do a number on your hair. From jumping in chlorinated pools and swimming in the ocean to spending hours and hours with the hot sun beating down on your gorgeous locks, it is likely that your hair took somewhat of a beating this summer. But don’t worry! In today’s blog, we’re offering up 5 things you can do to get your hair back in tip-top shape before fall.
But first, make sure you have your appointment scheduled at Papillon Blanc, your dedicated beauty and balayage salon in Birmingham, Michigan. We’d love to help you get your hair looking great as soon as possible!
Replenish Lost Moisture
Your hair loses a lot of moisture during the summer, and it’s time to take action to get it back. You will want to deeply condition your hair to ensure moisture is absorbed deep into the shaft, rather than just sitting on the surface. You can pick up a deep conditioning hair mask at your favorite store, or make a DIY mask at home. One fun DIY conditioning hair treatment consists of mixing together olive oil, a banana, avocado, and an egg and combing the product through your hair, leaving it shiny, strong, and soft. If that seems like a lot of work, comb some olive oil or coconut oil through your hair before you shower, leave it on for twenty minutes or so, and shampoo it as usual.
Along those lines, don’t forget to give your hair plenty of moisture from the inside as well by drinking lots of water. While you would think that the heat of summer would make us slightly dehydrated, we actually tend to drink more water during the summer. Make sure you keep up your water intake during the colder months!
Check Your Hair Products
There are a few things you want to look out for in the hair products that you use every day. Look out for ingredients like isopropyl alcohol, sulfates, and propylene glycol. These ingredients are known to get hair squeaky clean, but they also can cause breakage and dryness. If you’re trying to recover your hair after a long, hot summer stick to more natural options or hair products that are free of alcohols, parabens, sulfates, and other hair-harming ingredients.
Try A Collagen or Hair Botox Treatment
At our Birmingham, MI hair salon, we offer Botox and collagen treatments for your hair. While this might sound a little “out there” for someone who has only ever used our services for a cut and color, they are actually common treatments that are known for giving hair that va-va-voom it’s been missing. These treatments nourish the hair and make it softer, more manageable, and more voluminous, as well as improves the elasticity and prevents breakage. Schedule an appointment at our PB Hair Salon to learn more about these revitalizing hair treatments!
Dust Off Those Ends
Sometimes all your hair needs to look refreshed and revitalized is a nice trim to get rid of split ends. All the grief that we put our hair through during the summer, from tight ponytails to days at the pool, can result in some major breakage. If you want to keep your length, have your hair stylist just dust off the ends to get rid of frizzy split ends. If you want to make a bigger impact on the health of your hair, cut off a couple inches or more of those dry, dead ends.
Get Some Fresh Color
Sometimes your hair just looks blah after summer. It’s not a color you love, it’s dull, it’s dry. If you’ve done the above and still aren’t loving your hair, or you’re just ready for something new, stop by our balayage salon in Birmingham for some gorgeous fresh color. Our color specialists can recreate our “lookbook” styles on your hair or work with your current color, texture, and length to create the perfect balayage look you’ll love.
Balayage is a great option for anyone trying to maintain the health of their hair because it is a relatively low-maintenance style, meaning there is no need for a monthly trip the salon to touch up your roots. We also use only the highest quality hair products at our salon to keep your hair healthy, even when we’re dying it.
