The Best Summer Hair Care from Blakes Hairdressing Salon

Protect Your Hair from Pool Chlorine

Chlorine can dry out your hair which means there’s a high likelihood of it breaking.  It can also react with your hair colour, turning it a slightly different shade.  

The solution?  If you are not into wearing a swimming cap then it’s time to invest in a chlorine-removing shampoo.   You could try Paul Mitchell Shampoo Three which is specifically designed to cleanse and brighten your hair, helping to remove residues from chlorine build-up.  It should be used after swimming to remove chlorine and prevent green tinges appearing in your hair.  It will also strengthen your hair and help to prevent future chlorine deposits.  Available at our Dover Street salon.

Then, when you are back to your usual routine, make sure you book into Blakes Hairdressing Salon in Canterbury for a professional conditioning treatment to inject moisture back into your hair.

Coloured hair can fade in the sun so use a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner to prevent hair colour fade. 

We recommend the new Wella Invigo Sun UV Colour Protection and Repair range.   It comprises high performance shampoo, conditioner and leave-in UV protection spray.

To be extra safe of course, wear a hat on a hot summer’s day – protective and stylish!

Frizzy hair can be an irritating summer hair problem, with the heat and humidity turning your gorgeous hairstyle into a mess the moment you step out of the door!

To avoid the dreaded frizzy hair syndrome, we need to put moisture back into hair.  Serums and hair oils are the most popular anti-frizz products for summer hair problems.   At Blakes we recommend MoroccanOil, which comes in a great range of frizz controlling products, all available at our Canterbury hair salon.

Better still, have a professional hair smoothing treatment.  Our Keratin Treatments smooth and restore your hair, leaving is silky and manageable for up to 5 months.   Speak to your Blakes stylist to find out more.

The summer sun can cause your hair to become dry and prone to breakage.  Use a good heat protection spray and hair products containing UV protection.  We recommend MoroccanOil or you could try Paul Mitchell Hot off the Press, designed to protect fragile strands of hair as well as fighting frizz.

Of course, wearing a hat in the sunshine is always a good idea, but if not, try tying your hair into a ponytail, plait or bun to keep your hair neat and tidy.
