Don’t Fight It, Embrace It

Summer in Toronto is finally here, but along with glorious sunny days comes UV rays and humidity (yikes)!

Most of our clients do colour their hair and it’s important to protect your investment (and our hard work!) at this time of year. Here at Blonde, we carry a few lines that each have unique products designed to shield your hair from harsh rays.

The Kérastase Soleil line is perfect for hard-core product junkies. Regularly applying Serum Apres Soleil on damp hair before each blow-dry will create a weightless shiny shield for your hair. And shampooing with Bain Apres Soleil followed by Creme Richesse is the perfect way to keep fading at bay.

Ocean and pool lovers should also consider using Gelee Aqua-Proof. When applied to damp or dry hair it forms a waterproof barrier to keep salt or chlorine out of your hair cuticles.

Hydrate-Me shampoo and rinse from Kevin.Murphy is a paraben- and sulphate-free way to protect and nourish your hair as well. Perfect for eco-chic clients.

My number one recommendation for our clients in the summer is to work with your hair’s natural texture. Recently, a client of mine came in with a gorgeous head of curls. This was news to me because for almost a year now, we’d been styling it straight. To keep wavy and curly hair from getting out of control in the humidity the secret is great product and not to touch it!

After washing your hair, apply a product like Hair.Resort or Motion.Lotion from Kevin.Murphy and comb through, give it a good scrunch and either diffuse or dry naturally. But remember: Don’t touch! This way the curl pattern is left undisturbed and frizz-free.

For clients who need a whole system to care for their curly hair, Kérastase’s Oleo-Curl line is for you. With a shampoo, 2 masques (for fine or thick curly hair), and 2 leave-in curl products you’re sure to find the right combination for you!

As always don’t be afraid to ask! We love to help our clients design a regimen that works for them any time of the year!
