Summer Hair Care Advice from Michelle Marshall Hair Salon in Cardiff
Summer’s here which means plenty of sun, sand and relaxation. We all love summer and know that we need to protect our skin when we go out in the sun, but it’s very easy to forget that our hair needs protection too. The sun’s UV rays can cause havoc with your lovely locks, leaving them faded, dry, frizzy and feeling like straw! Sea salt and chlorine from pools can make matters even worse, so it’s important to protect your hair with these top tips for healthy summer hair from Michelle Marshall Hair Salon in Cardiff.
Summer Hair Care Tips from Michelle Marshall Salon
1. Have a Regular Trim at Michelle Marshall Hair Salon in Cardiff
Make sure you book an appointment with your Michelle Marshall hair stylist for regular trims over the summer to keep your hair looking beautifully healthy and to keep those split ends at bay.
It’s particularly important to book in for a trim when you return from holiday, to trim away those beach-frazzled ends. Why not book in advance when you’re in the salon for your pre-holiday appointment?
2. Protect Your Hair from the Sun’s Harsh UV Rays
If you’re travelling somewhere hot for your summer holidays, or even if you’re having a stay-cation, it’s important to protect your hair from the sun’s UV rays. Consider investing in hair products with UV protection, which will protect your hair without leaving it lank and greasy.
We stock a wide range of top quality Redken hair care products, available for sale both at our Cardiff hairdressing salon and via our online shop. To protect your hair this summer we recommend Redken’s Color Extend range, designed to extend the life of your hair colour by repelling UVA and UVB rays, as well as eliminating other environmental damage to the hair left after a day at the beach or pool.
Even better, if you stock up on any two Redken products this summer you’ll get a fantastic Travel Kit (worth £9.99) absolutely free! Containing summer favourites Blondage, Beach Envy, Extreme and All Soft, the Travel Kit is perfect for soft and sassy summer locks. Also available for purchase separately.
3. Leave Conditioner in Your Hair
Swimming in the sea or a chlorinated swimming pool will dry out your hair due to the salty water and chemicals. If you’re planning to go for a swim, we suggest wetting your hair with fresh water under the shower first so that it absorbs less salt water or chlorine. After you’ve been for a dip, we’d recommend that you wash your hair again using a professional quality shampoo and conditioner. You could even leave your conditioner in to give your hair an extra moisture boost.
If you’re worried about the condition of your hair, we’d recommend award winning Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Treatment for damaged hair. This best selling treatment repairs, strengthens and protects hair shine. Available as part of our summer Travel Recovery Kit, which is free when you purchase two full price Redken products this summer!
4. Banish Summer Frizz with a Hair Smoothing Treatment at Michelle Marshall Salon
Summer heat and humidity are a key cause of frizzy hair, and who wants to look like Monica from Friends on her trip to Barbados?!
