Prevent Frizzy Hair With A Deep Conditioning Treatment at Bliss Hair Salons in Nottingham & Loughborough
Frizzy hair is one prickly summer hair problem we hear year after year! The summer heat and humidity can play havoc with your hair.
Frizzy hair occurs because of a lack of moisture, so book in for a deeply nourishing treatment at Bliss Hair Salons to prevent fizz and restore hydration to your locks after your summer holiday.
We recommend Moroccanoil to add moisture to hair that has been over-processed and is perhaps dry and damaged with split ends. It is a great conditioning and styling treatment for frizzy, unmanageable hair and can tame irritating flyaway hair too! Moroccanoil have a wide range of hair hydrating products and even include colour depositing masks to help you have fun with your hair colour!
Speak with your Bliss stylist about your frizzy hair worries and we can recommend the best treatments to give your hair a much needed boost!
Choose The Best Hair Cleansing Products
We tend to wash our hair more in the summer because suntan oils, sweat and over-styling can make it become greasy, feel clogged and feel dirty. The heavy detergents in a lot of shampoos can dry out your hair and cause split ends and breaking. Choosing a sulphate free shampoo with cleanse your hair without causing it to become dry.
Styling products used to create those gorgeous beachy waves and "effortless" top knots can cause a build up of products, a clarifying shampoo or scalp scrub will leave your hair and scalp feeling super clean and refreshed. Ask your Bliss stylist about our WeDo range, which contains high performing ingredients with none of the nasties - ensuring gorgeous, healthy looking hair throughout the summer!
Protect Your Hair from Chlorine Damage
Before diving into a cool, crisp swimming pool this summer, make sure that your hair is well protected against the damaging effects of chlorine. Chlorine can cause your hair to become dry and more susceptible to breakage. Chlorine is also well known to fade hair colour, and let's not discuss blonde hair turning green in the pool!
A swimming cap is the best way to prevent your hair being damaged from chlorine in the swimming pool. Whilst they weren't always a great look in school swimming lessons, you can get high fashion floral swimming caps and head coverings from most high street stores.
We also advise using a chlorine-removing shampoo when washing your hair, speak to your Bliss stylist about the best chlorine removal products in the salon.
Protect Your Hair from Heat and UV Damage
Strong summer heat can make hair dry, brittle and prone to breakage. To ensure your hair stays in top condition, use a good heat protection spray and only use hair products with UV protection.
Wearing a hat or silky headscarf in the sunshine will protect it from the UV damage too, so get creative with your headwear whilst protecting your crowning glory.
How to Prevent Your Hair Colour From Fading in Summer
Your coloured hair can fade in the sun, so to prevent hair colour fade, use shampoos and conditioners that are friendly to your hair colour.
If you wish to colour your hair before going on holiday, visit our hair salons in Nottingham & Loughborough and ask your Bliss stylist to add a luxurious OLAPLEX treatment to your hair colouring service to strengthen your hair and protect against damage. Once you're home, book in for a deep conditioning treatment to restore lustre to your locks.
