Spring is almost here and if your plans include a vacation or getaway, here are a few tips for styling and keeping your hair healthy.

Travel size - When you’re going away, don’t rely on the hair care products hotels give you for free. If you have color treated hair, be sure to pack your color shampoo and conditioner in travel bottles or buy travel sizes. From Oribe to Kerastase to Riccardo Maggiore’s signature line, we have TSA approved travel sizes of all your essentials.  And speaking of essentials, travel blogger Dana Berez recommends dry shampoo: “Dry Shampoo can work wonders, and let you keep a style for longer than a day. I even put dry shampoo in my roots on day one to add some texture.”

Protect Proactively. Get a salon treatment before you go. Besides adding shine and restoring moisture, a deep conditioning treatment will help to strengthen your hair and seal your cuticles for protection from the elements. One of our favorites is the Milbon treatment because it includes a booster pack of 4 take-home treatments you can throw in your travel bag.

If you aren’t able to get a salon treatment, use a leave-in conditioner which will act as a barrier from saltwater and chlorine. Riccardo Maggiore’s Rinnova Hair Texturizer is a fabulous leave-in with sunscreens to protect from UVA/UVB damage.

Be sure to wet your hair with clean water before you go in the pool. There’s actually a scientific reason for this. Your hair will absorb the water, so is much better for it to absorb tap water than chlorinated water which can damage your hair.

Let your hair have a vacation too - if you regularly heat style your hair, a vacation is a great time to give it a rest. Change it up and explore the natural texture of your hair or create texture with heatless styling. Travel and lifestyle Dana Berez, “I like to wash my hair at night and tie it up in two buns or a french braid and let it dry overnight. In the morning I have curls without any heat styling or time.” Berez also loves to add hair accessories: “Whenever I am in a bind and my hair is not cooperating, I like to put it in a high pony, and wrap a hair scarf around it. “

Whatever your plans, we hope you’re able to relax and enjoy them. Before you go or after you return, we’re here to help create beauty for your lifestyle.

Olaplex: The Hair “Reset” Treatment

What if you had the power to rebuild the strength, structure and integrity of your hair, a sort of “hair reset” that would take your hair back to days of stronger, shinier, softer feeling hair? I’m willing to bet you would use that power in a heartbeat.   

Olaplex is not just another conditioning hair treatment, it’s the answer.  It’s real science with real results and a huge game changer for winning the war on breakage and badly damaged hair.  

This hair perfector, is composed of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen chains. These molecular chains link broken disulfide bonds in the hair and restores the health of hair damaged during thermal, mechanical and chemical services. Especially beneficial for chemically colored hair this hair repair system transforms the texture of colored hair and allows colorist to do what they have only ever dreamed of before, i.e. such feats as going from black to blonde in one session. How do you think Kim Kardashian went platinum?

If you've over-bleached, over-colored, or even severely damaged your tresses over the years, Olaplex works from the inside the hair shaft out to strengthen, condition and literally reconnect the hair strand structure where broken.  It makes the hair stronger by rebuilding the damaged disulfide bonds in your hair that are broken during the chemical process. Our stylists love how Olaplex makes the hair look and feel. The results are truly phenomenal and because our stylist swear by this amazing hair repair system, we are pleased to offer Olaplex at our salons.

How Olaplex Works:

Olaplex works in three stages:

 1.     Stage 1 - Olaplex Number 1: Bond Multiplier is used - this can be put on the hair as a stand-alone treatment, or if you're getting your color done, it is mixed in with the color or bleach and put straight onto your hair in foils.

 2.     Olaplex Number 2, Bond Perfector is then put on the hair once the bleach is rinsed out. This is left on for a good 10 to 20 minutes to really get the most out of its chemical mending.  When the time is up it’s rinsed out followed by a shampoo and condition as normal.

 3.     Olaplex Number 3, Hair Perfector is the third step in the process and also is a take home treatment.  We recommend you use once a week. Apply to damp hair, comb through, and leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes at home before washing as normal. If you want to maximize the effect you can leave it on overnight.

Because of the repairing power of Olaplex, we forecast more and more people will demanding beautiful, healthy hair without risk or sacrifice. For more information, ask your colorist about Olaplex or stop in for a complimentary hair consultation.
