Avoiding Back to School Hair Blues!

Summer fun unfortunately results in post-summer damage! After spending time in the elements: sun, chlorine, salt water and air conditioning your hair may become dull, brassy, dry and brittle.

Come September, dry hair is almost a guarantee because air can't repair itself, we have to put back in what has been stripped over the summer months.

In order to restore your hair color to its pre-summer state, we recommend heading to the salon for a fresh cut, a gloss and a deep conditioning treatment. Remember to use color protecting shampoos and conditioners

“All that UV exposure can create problems for our hair, causing alterations to the protein of the hair strand itself,” A global hair manufacturer, previously told Well+Good. “That’s when you see things like color lightening, and stiffening because your hair becomes more porous.” The UV rays damage the outermost layer of your hair, which leads to broken lengths, split ends, and discoloration. Because of this, it's key to protect your strands every time you step outside. Opt for a heat protectant to stop the damage before it has the chance to start.

Did you know that salt from the ocean crystalizes when it gets inside the pores of your hair? It can also cause the color from your hair dye to oxidize more quickly. First and foremost, the best thing you can do to avoid damage is rinse your hair immediately following your dip.

“Our scalps are inevitably a lot sweatier during the summer months than usual, and it's important to properly remove said sweat to avoid any nasty buildup. While the sweat itself doesn't technically make your hair dirty, if you leave it on your scalp for too long it can mix with bacteria and fungus, which can lead to a few issues you probably don't wanna have to deal with. To make sure you're getting a proper cleaning every time you lather and rinse, opt for a clarifying shampoo, recommended by our stylists, which will remove sweat, regulate excess sebum, eliminate dandruff, and calm itchiness.”

Even those who take excellent care of their hair sometimes need a boost. Stress, styling and environmental factors can weaken the hair gradually, causing it to look dry and dull, behaving in strange, unruly ways.
