Summer is here, and it's time to enjoy the sunshine, pool parties and beach days! But as much as we love the summer, it can also bring challenges when it comes to maintaining our hair.
From hard water issues to swimmer's hair and mineral buildup, we've got you covered with some pro tips to keep your locks looking fabulous all season long.
So grab a fruity drink, put on your favourite sun hat, and let's dive into the world of healthy summer hair!
At Crimson Hair Salon, we encounter a variety of hair challenges every day. It's not just about cutting and colouring; external factors like water quality, job environments, product usage and even weather conditions can affect the health and appearance of our hair.
We understand the frustration of blonde-haired clients who come into the salon with a greenish tinge after swimming. How does it happen? Well, when your light yellow hair meets the blue-tinted water of the pool, a chemical reaction occurs, resulting in that not-so-pretty shade of green.
The culprit? Chlorine, which not only changes the colour but also damages your hair. Don't worry; we'll explain how to fix it!
Hair is porous, which means it absorbs water readily. When you swim in a pool treated with chlorine, the blue-tinted molecules in the water get absorbed into your hair.
Although some chlorine washes out when you shampoo your hair, not all of it gets completely removed, leading to the buildup of blue layers.
Over time, this buildup turns your hair a light shade of green. And the worst part? The remaining chlorine continues to damage your hair! If you have highlighted hair, the colour change can be even more noticeable and the damage more severe.
But fret not! There are ways to prevent and treat swimmer's hair.
After swimming, rinse your hair thoroughly with a specialized swimmer's shampoo, like our Malibu Swimmer Treatment, which is designed to eliminate chlorine and prevent damage. It's available both in-salon and for take-home use, ensuring your hair stays beautiful and chlorine-free!
In the Okanagan Valley, some households have hard water, which can wreak havoc on your hair. How do you know if you have hard water?
Look out for signs like dryness, frizziness, damage, quick-fading colour, flat appearance, and a dry scalp. Combine that with the intense dryness of summer, and you've got a recipe for hair emergencies! But fear not, solutions are at hand.
At Crimson Hair Salon, we offer hard water treatments that can work wonders for your hair.
These treatments are easy to use and deliver quick results by removing the minerals responsible for discoloration, dryness, and dullness. Pairing these treatments with our fabulous hair masks will leave you with gorgeous, manageable, and shiny hair.
Rest assured, our products are eco-friendly, cruelty-free and plant-based, so they not only benefit you but also the planet.
Our salon offers a wide range of amazing hair treatments that will leave you feeling refreshed and revitalized.
So, why wait? Give us a call and book a free consultation today to embark on your journey to fabulous, radiant hair. Get ready to make a splash this summer with hair that shines as bright as the sun!
