Protect Your Hair from Swimming Pool Chlorine

Solar Sun protection at Westhil Hair Salon resizedChlorine can dry out your hair which can result in split ends and breakage.  It can also react with your hair colour, turning it an unpleasant greenish shade – definitely something to be avoided!

The solution?  If you don’t want to wear a swimming cap then we’d recommend investing in a chlorine-removing shampoo.   System Professional Solar Hair & Body Shampoo is specifically designed to gently cleanse the hair of chlorine residues as well as sunscreen and sea salt.  It will also strengthen the hair’s ability to combat these harsh environmental challenges, leaving it soft and manageable. It is equally effective on the skin, removing even waterproof sun lotions.  Use it daily, 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 west with style hair salon near Aberdeen for a professional conditioning treatment to inject moisture back into your hair.  You could try Penetraitt Repair Masque from Sebastian Professional, which is a deep conditioning treatment designed to rescue your hair from damage and leave super strong and silky-soft.   

Prevent Hair Colour FadeSolar Sun Oil Westhill Hair Salon

Coloured hair can fade in the sun so it’s important to use a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner to prevent this. 

We recommend the Color Save range from System Professional.  This includes a shampoo that can be used every day to gently cleanse and protect the keratin structure of colour-treated hair.   This should be followed by Color Save Conditioner and finally a spritz of Solar Helio-Spray.  This non-greasy leave in product protects the hair from all sun damage including colour fade.

To be extra safe of course, wear a hat on a hot summer’s day – protective and stylish!

Wella Summer HairAvoid Frizzy Hair in Summer

Frizzy hair can be an annoying summer hair problem, with the heat and humidity turning your gorgeous smooth hairstyle into a fluffy mess the moment you step out of the door!

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 west with style we recommend Sun Oil, which add daily softness to your hair whilst reducing fly away hair.  It contains UV filters together with a blend of luxurious oils to deeply condition and protect the keratin of your hair for lasting smoothness.  

Better still, to really solve your frizzy hair problems we’d highly recommend having a professional hair smoothing treatment.  Our Kebelo Smoothing Treatments can deliver the smooth and silky hair of your dreams.  Whatever your hair type, the Kebelo 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 100 days!  Speak to your west with style stylist to find out more.

Protect Your Hair from Heat

The heat from 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  Sun Oil or you could try Sebastian Professional Trilliant Spray, which protects from heat whilst adding sparkling shine to your hair.

Of course, wearing a hat when it’s sunny 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.
