4 Ways to Keep Your Hair and Color Fresh This Summer

 

I have a few tips and tricks to help keep your hair healthier and your color fresh while doing summer activities! No one wants to deal with tangled tresses.

 

  1. Wet and Jet

Before getting into the pool or heading to the beach, I would suggest wetting your hair completely. It may help minimize the amount of chlorine that will get through and prevent the salt water from penetrating your beautiful locks. I know showering or wetting it is a pain, but you will be thanking me later. Chlorine severely dries out our hair and could cause enough damage that you end up with breakage. A mother’s nightmare for their child after swim class. Trust me…. been there, done that.

 

  1. Don’t neglect Protect

Take extra protection and add my favorite leave-in: the Biotera Ultra-Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner, which conditions and rehydrates very dry, damaged or coarse hair. Spray this product on your freshly wet hair and use a comb or a brush to evenly distribute the product.

  1. Tie it back

I would recommend a cute little updo of some sort. It does not have to be anything fancy. A basic braid to keep it from being a tangled mess. If you have two rubber bands, put your hair in a ponytail first. Then, twist the remaining hair and wrap it around the ponytail rubber band. Secure with the second hair tie, and voila!

 

  1. After Care

It can be exhausting being in the sun all day. Swimming takes a toll for sure. The last thing you want to do is take another shower, but I highly recommend you do! One of my favorite shampoo and conditioner combos that will help to strengthen your hair is the Biotera Long and Healthy Shampoo and Conditioner. This duo is the best because it helps against breakage, damage and split ends. Take it easy on your hair once you’re done. Whatever you do…. DO NOT TAKE YOUR TOWEL AND VIGOROUSLY SHAKE IT. It will only damage and rough up the cuticle. Pat dry your hair. Get as much moisture out of it as you can. Then, you can start to comb it. Start from the bottom and work your way up to the top. Take your time. Do not rip through your locks. A little maintenance will keep your hair healthy and beautiful.

Unbreakable Blonde

Remember when blonding hair meant breakage?

 

There are endless reasons to reach for the bleach…  Whether it’s that blondoholic who is never blonde enough, removing a vivid tone or lifting someone’s base color, bleach and high lift color are your most powerful weapons in the color arsenal.

 

It seems like just yesterday that all that power meant compromised, damaged hair. Those days are long gone thanks to the major leaps and bounds from the labs of Zotos Professional.

 

Brand new from AGEbeautiful… Ultra Bond!

Now we can lighten hair with full confidence and no fear of aging, breakage or damage, all with built-in bonding benefits.

 

This cutting edge series has both a powder and crème lightener, three high lift / hyper lift shades, dedicated developers and an at home maintenance line that is the best I have ever worked with.

 

One of my favorite clients has proudly dubbed herself a “blondoholic”.  As long as she was as bright and white as I could possibly get her, she would suffer through the inevitable breakage side effects.  15 plus years of blonding just jumped into the new era…

 

Ever since we have switched her over to using AGEbeautiful’s Ultra Bond Series the results speak for themselves:
