Maintaining healthy hair can be difficult in the summer. Between sun, salt and chlorine, your clients' hair can take a major hit.
5 TIPS TO HEALTHY SUMMER HAIR
Oils can be hair's best friend in the summer. Get one that's light, like Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine, to deliver restorative and protective properties. Good for second- or third-day hair and adding shine.
"Take advantage of the braid parade," Villa says. The trendy style is great for a day by the pool or at the beach, and in the evening just unbraid for beachy waves and curls.
Avoid high heat with tools in the summer--hair is already fragile during these hot months. "Stick to medium and color-treated temperatures," Villa says. "And slow down to speed up. Slow down the pass with the iron so heat is directed to the sections of hair that need to be altered; it prevents unnecessary wear on hair and styles it much faster."
Make sure your client doesn't leave the salon without an anti-humidity, frizz-proof hairspray. Villa recommends Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile hairspray; it's formulated with vitamins C and E to protect hair and prevent color fading, and it provides 24-hour humidity resistance and 8-hour control.
Blondes especially tend to need help in this department. Pump up shine with a gloss (a la Redken Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist). It has vitamin B5 and camelina oil to boost hair's natural shine and control frizz for an ultra-polished look.
