YOUR GUIDE TO SUMMER-PROOF LOCKS

Posted on 13TH JANUARY 2017

Summer is here and that means long sunny days at the beach, BUT with all the fun that summer brings there is also the potential for severely damaged hair.

Chlorine, sun exposure, dryness and salt can leave your hair damaged and lifeless. It is so important to protect your hair from the harsh summer elements, as sun-damaged hair can result in colour fading, thinning, frizziness or split ends (please no!).

Not to worry, our Aveda summer solutions will protect your hair from these summer nasties. Keep reading for our top tips to ensure healthy, damage-free locks all summer long.

1. PREP & PROTECT

Preparing your hair for the harsh summer elements is KEY! The first step is using a Shampoo and Conditioner that has protectant properties. Aveda's Color Conserve Shampoo and Conditioner is the best way to prevent color fading and ensure that hair remains vibrant. Its natural ingredients seal the cuticles of the hair, leaving it silky soft and prepared for the elements.

Aveda Color Conserve Shampoo & Conditioner - RRP $37 each

2. HYDRATE

Just like our body needs water after a workout, so does our hair! It is just as susceptible to dehydration if it's not getting the proper nourishment it needs.

Incorporating an intense hydrating masque into your hair regime will provide the nutrition and moisture your hair needs after exposure to the elements. The After-Sun Masque by Aveda is our go to product for restoring and re-hydrating sun-exposed hair, leaving it silky smooth to touch.

Aveda Sun Care After-Sun Masque - RRP $49.95

3. REPAIR & RESTORE

Sometimes, a hydrating masque just won't cut it on severely dry locks and a little help is needed. Cue Damage Remedy – an intense system that works to strengthen and repair severely weakened hair from the inside out.

Aveda Damage Remedy Shampoo, Conditioner, Daily Repair - RRP $49 each, Intensive Restructuring Treatment - RRP $55


This four-step system works to restore and strengthen severely damaged and dry hair for seriously smooth, revitalised locks.

Part of the system, the 'Split End Repair' will solve your split end struggles by attracting broken ends together, instantly repairing them and preventing them from forming again!

4. STRENGTHEN

Arming your hair with the strength to combat summer aggressors is a must! Although Color Conserve Shampoo and Conditioner will work to protect hair, the Strengthening treatment from this range is the ultimate solution to ensuring long-lasting colour. The Color Conserve Strengthening Treatment prevents breakage by strengthening hair using Aveda's revolutionary Morikue protein complex. The best part about this product is its naturally-derived sunscreens that work to repel UV rays, protecting hair from sun-damage.

Aveda Color Conserve Strengthening Treatment - RRP $53

5. DEFEND

The sun is enemy number one when it comes to damaging hair as UV rays threaten its integrity. The Suncare Hair Veil by Aveda is a summer essential, creating a strong barrier of protection against the sun. This lightweight, water-resistant, UV defence protects hair from sun exposure for up to 16 hours! During this time your hair has the ultimate defence against colour fading, damage and dryness, not to mention its ability to leave hair silky and tangle-free.


Aveda Suncare Protective Hair Veil - RRP $49.95

So, before you hit the beach this season, make sure you've taken the steps to ensure maximum protection against the elements. All that's left to do is pack your bag with these essentials so you can maintain your glowing, healthy hair.

DEAD STRAIGHT WITHOUT DAMAGE

Yuko Yamashita, a world renowned hair stylist, lecturer and inspiration behind the YUKO brand, has dedicated herself to finding the solution for problematic hair, without causing damage.

Her passion has led her to collaborate with one of Japan's leading, health and beauty companies to bring you the revolutionary YUKO Straightening System. She hopes that through YUKO, woman all over the world, regardless of their location or nationality, can enjoy damage-free, beautifully straight hair that lifts their inner-confidence.

We are pleased to announce that the YUKO Straightening System is now available in our Garden City, Carindale and Doncaster Salons. Keep reading below to see how YUKO can work for you.

Why YUKO?

Unlike other Brazilian or Keratin based straightening methods which coat the hair, the YUKO process actually retexturises the hair through breaking down and restructuring the bonds of the hair.

YUKO's protein enriched G-Straight Treatment not only permanently straightens and smoothens hair, it also replenishes moisture to create shiny and healthy hair.

Because YUKO changes the internal structure of the hair, the results are longer-lasting than other straightening treatments and will remain straight almost permanently.

One of our favourite things about the treatment is that it is does not contain any chemicals that produce formaldehyde or any other carcinogenic substances.

The YUKO straightening system is so effective that many clients insist they would never try any other treatment type.

If you are interested in speaking to one of our stylists about enhancing your hair with YUKO, please call us or book online for a personalised consultation.
