Protect Your Hair from Swimming Pool Chlorine
Chlorine can dry out your hair which can result in it splitting and breaking. It can also react with your hair colour, turning it a greenish shade – definitely something to be avoided!
The solution? If you are not into wearing a swimming cap then we recommend investing in a chlorine-removing shampoo. Paul Mitchell Shampoo Three is specifically designed to cleanse and brighten your hair, removing residues from chlorine build-up. It will also strengthen your hair and help to prevent future chlorine deposits. It should be used after swimming to remove chlorine and prevent green tinges appearing in your hair.
Then, when you are back into your usual routine after your holiday, make sure you book an appointment at Peewees Hairdressing Salon in Burgess Hill for a professional conditioning treatment to inject moisture back into your hair. Our bespoke, luxury Peewees Cocktails are perfect for revitalising holiday frazzled hair and can repair, rehydrate and banish frizz.
Prevent Hair Colour Fade
Coloured hair can fade in the sun so use a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner to prevent hair colour fade.
We recommend the Color Protect® range from Paul Mitchell. This includes a shampoo that can be used every day to gently cleanse and protect colour-treated hair while hydrating, strengthening and boosting shine. It contains plant extracts to help shield harmful UVA and UVB rays while special conditioners keep every strand moisturized. Finish with Color Protect conditioner and leave in Color Protect Locking Spray. This amazing product really keeps hair colour bright, ensuring that it doesn’t fade. It contains natural sunflower extract to provide intense UV protection and add shine.
To be extra safe of course, wear a hat on a hot summer’s day – protective and stylish!
Avoid Frizzy Hair in Summer
Frizzy hair can be an annoying summer hair problem, with the heat and humidity turning your gorgeous sleek hairstyle into a mess the moment you step out of the door!
If you want to avoid the dreaded frizzy look, you need to put moisture back into hair. Serums and hair oils are the most popular anti-frizz products for summer hair problems. At Peewees we recommend MoroccanOil, which comes in a great range of frizz controlling products, all available at our Burgess Hill hair salon.
Better still, to really solve your frizzy hair problems we’d highly recommend having a professional hair smoothing treatment. Our Nanokeratin Treatments deliver the smooth and silky hair you’ve been dreaming of. Whatever your hair type, the Nanokeratin system will simultaneously repair and smooth to produce gorgeous hair that’s easy to manage and soft to touch. Even better, the results last for up to 4 months! Speak to your Peewees stylist to find out more.
Protect Your Hair from Heat
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, which is 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.
