The end of summer is marked by back-to-school shopping, last-minute trips to the beach and (not as fun) post-summer hair damage. Not to worry. There’s a solution for everything from dryness to split ends. Here are some of our favorite salon treatments.
The Problem: Unruly Ends
The Fix: Brazilian Blowout Split End Repair
How It Works: Applied to the bottom two to three inches of hair, the product acts like glue to keep broken hair fibers smoothed together. The stylist then blow-dries hair and flat irons ends to seal the deal. There’s no down time needed before shampooing, it can even be used after coloring and lasts up to four weeks.
The Problem: Limp Locks
The Fix: L’Oréal Professionnel Volumceutic
How It Works: The stylist chooses from three treatment options depending on your hair concern: fine, color
- treated or dry and damaged. It works by removing build -up at the scalp and adds body to strands for root-to-tip volume with results lasting up to three days. Between salon visits, keep the effect going with the complementary at-home products.
The Problem: Dryness
The Fix: Redken Steam Infusion
How It Works: Using a steam-powered straightening iron from root to tip, the stylist infuses a conditioning treatment into hair. It leaves locks straight and hydrated without the heat damage.
The Problem: Frizz
The Fix: Cezanne Perfect Finish Keratin Smoothing Treatment
A formaldehyde-free smoothing treatment that delivers smoother, straighter hair, the service will, of course, leaves hair healthier but the best part? It cuts down on drying time, which means less a.m. blow dryer time.
The Problem: Overall Damage
The Fix: The good ol’ hair chop
The easiest way to fix damaged hair is to start fresh. There’s no better time to try out a chic-for-fall haircut then when your ends are absolutely fried. Feel free to find a few celeb inspirations, then take them to a stylist you trust and ask her to give you the best short style for your face shape. Another option? Find a friend with a short ‘do you love and ask her for her stylist/salon info.
