Summer Lovin’ – Hair Not So Much

By August 2, 2016Uncategorized

With beautiful sunny days and blue skies and that light breeze through your hair, everyone loves summertime. Well, almost everyone.

Your hair goes through a lot during the hot weather season. The Toronto and Mississauga area tend to get humid and your hair says, “No thank you.” It tends to create frizz or flatten hair and even  causes your hair colour to fade and  go brassy.

Hair seems to have a mind of it’s own in the summer leaving you with very little control over it. Not to worry, that’s where Top Salon, Onaré Salon is here to help. We are resourceful and prepared for damage control and we are able to assist in maintaining and keeping your hair looking it’s best.

Hair Is Weak When Wet

This summer your probably thinking, “I can’t wait to go swimming!” While your saying this, your hair is thinking the total opposite because chlorine and the sun can be damaging to your hair and make your hair weak and dry, causing it to become brittle which can lead to split ends. It can also leave your hair knotted and strip your colour and no one wants that.

When spending a lot of time outside in the summer it’s important to wear a hat to protect your hair and scalp. We also recommend using products in your hair to help fight against UV rays.

Remember to always wet your hair before going in the pool as your hair can only absorb so much water ( this helps protect it from chlorine) and wash your hair after swimming to remove the chlorine and other chemicals from your hair and help prevent against damage to it. We recommend using Bumble and Bumble (Bb) Surf Foam Wash Shampoo to rebuild and retain body and texture for your hair.

If your headed to the beach try applying Saijojo Leave in Tonic followed by Bb Surf Spray when getting out of the water. Then comb through your wet hair so while it air-dries your hair is conditioned and you are left with a nice beach-wave style instead of leaving it impossible to detangle later and lead to breakage and shedding when you brush it. Trust us, your hair will thank you.
