Winter Time Worry

Aveda Damage Remedy Restructuring
Wintertime doesn't mix with your hair very well. The drying effects of the cold weather (and we are about to have some Atlanta) bring a whole lot of issues. Cold air strips your hair of moisture and can cause breakage, dry frizz (when mixed with static electricity- I know about this as it happens to me constantly), and can even cause dandruff if not taken care of promptly and correctly.

You CAN Beat This!!

Aveda's Damage Remedy Restructuring Shampoo works wonders for these issues. Its a great combination of a moisturizing shampoo that is sulfate free, (uses a secondary cleanser instead of sulfate surfactants) and has conditioning properties infused with proteins to strengthen the follicle. It's important not to strip your scalp and hair of its moisture with harsh cleansers, especially with the dryness that winter weather brings.

Conditioning regularly is important. It keeps down static electricity when dry frizz blows your hair every which way and can make for the worst hair day. The wind is blowing in  Atlanta tonight so make sure that you are conditioning and guarding your hair from the element with a silk scarf or something that won't allow the static to build up.

Make sure that you are trimming the split ends. Your hair works really hard to fix them and it can cause extra frizz. Come by the salon for a quick trim to beat that damage. You can give us a call at (404) 814-1827 or book an appointment online.

Keep warm and keep it up. Your hair will appreciate it.

Products are super important when styling, coloring, or maintaining your hair. What's important, is that you find the product that fits your specific needs. We have a product list and they vary for each individuals needs. Deep conditioning, styling, blow-dry, volumize, color care, What does it all mean? well it means that you have to do a lot of digging and there is a lot of trial and error involved. make sure that you let your stylist know what you need/want. For example, maybe your hair has a brassy tone to it after some time goes by or maybe its just in the transitioning. It happens. Instead of paying for a touch up, you can use Aveda's Blue Malva. One of the highlighted ingredients in its formulation is Centurea Cyanus Flower Extract (cornflower).  The reason this specific ingredient blend is important is because of its anti-irritant, antioxidant, and astringent properties, cornflower may help increase tone while minimizing oxidative stress and delivering a soothing aesthetic.  In other words, you are able to take out this brassy color tint that you see happening and save yourself the trouble of coming to see us for nothing. There are other active ingredients that generate moisturizing effects as well to help protect the hair.
