Keeping Blondes Bright
August, 12 2020
Mindy, here from A Touch of Heaven Beauty & Wellness Spa, sharing some information for KEEPING BLONDES BRIGHT.* I am a blonde that does not relish the reddish gold under tones that appear in my own locks. To battle them, I have learned (mostly the hard way) that all blonde hair is NOT the same. This info is for those already with blonde hair. Those trying to achieve it is a whole different article.
Purple Shampoo is not for me no matter what!! My hair grabs it with a death grip in two point zero seconds leaving me with heather grey or purple hair!! However, it is a good product for others to consider. One key note is not to use it too much or too soon after lightening. Too much use can actually make your hair look dull or dark. If your hair has had a blonde toner or color applied... use cooler temp water to wash and rinse. Also, a water filter will help avoid the deposit or build up of color-depleting minerals.
In between salon visits, schedule a gloss treatment to revive your fabulous locks. This could add weeks of glistening do's to your style. This works with all hair color choices.
Be mindful of pools and hot tubs. Chlorine can and will strip the life out of you mane. Try to wash hair soon after to make sure your protecting your investment.
NOT ALL HAIR PRODUCT IS THE SAME!!!! Ask a professional what would be best for you and your hair.
When receiving a spray tan, always wear a cap. No need to deposit the tanning over-spray on your hair. We all know what tanning beds can do to your skin. They also can dry out your hair. :(
Ask your professional stylist for OLAPLEX to be added to all chemical hair services. It will help protect your hair from the damage that can happen.
Blonde hair or highlights can be enjoyed more when the right steps are taken to care for it. I look forward to wearing my sunglasses. I will need to protect my eyes from all those BRIGHT SHINING BLONDES. :b
Tips for Great Summer Hair Days!!
July, 17 2017
There are a lot of things you can do to prevent summer damage to your hair. First and foremost, you need to put yourself on a preventative care regimen by using a good leave-in conditioner.
Dry hair seeks to regain moisture, the drier your hair becomes the more it will frizz because dry hair wants to soak up the moisture in the humid air. Leave-in conditioners do an amazing job at sealing in your hair’s natural moisture and oils. A quality leave-in conditioner does so much, it reduces frizz, prevents breakage, adds shine, smooths, protects color, and helps to prevent heat damage from styling tools.
Your hair is very vulnerable in the summer because of added environmental exposure and stresses. Saltwater, mineral deposits, and pool chlorine also take a toll on your hair by stressing out, drying out and stripping your hair of its natural oils.
Protecting your hair outdoors can be as easy as wearing a hat or scarf, however, if you want to keep your locks out in the open then your leave-in conditioner can be your hair’s best friend.
A few additional tips:
Keep your hair trimmed in the summer. Trimming off dry ends helps to prevent splitting and breakage.
Always soak your hair in cold water and apply a leave-in conditioner before hitting the waves or diving into the pool. If your hair is drenched with clean water and leave-in conditioner, it won’t absorb as much saltwater or pool chemicals. When applying leave-in conditioner blot away excess water from cleansed hair and gently massage it in. After you go for a swim, rinse hair in fresh water and reapply your leave-in conditioner before resuming your outdoor activities.
