Sweet summertime is finally here! A time for outdoor adventures, endless nights sitting by the campfire, swimming and… unwanted green hair? While summertime is full of enjoyment, it is also full of chemicals, oils, and reside that can leave your hair feeling dull, heavy, and unresponsive to styling. The good news… clarifying shampoo and treatments equivalent.
Overtime, product residue, excess oils, and harsh chemicals and minerals (from swimming pools or even well water), weigh down the hair causing a dull, oily look and feel. Both clarifying shampoo and our pre-art treatment, offered here at the salon, traps those impurities, and removes them from the hair. Generally, using a clarifying shampoo is recommended once a week, however, it truly varies. For someone who swims a lot or has hard water, pulling those impurities can be more important, especially to get rid of the unwanted green tint that is common with swimming or the mineral buildup, such as copper, magnesium, iron, and calcium, that is common with well water. In this case it might be more beneficial to use twice a week, rather than someone who has soft water, not much product residue, and rarely dips their hair in chlorine may be able to get away with biweekly or even once a month. When using clarifying shampoo, it is important to let it sit on the hair. Letting the shampoo sit on the hair allows the product buildup on the scalp to be broken down and released for the ultimate detoxification.
So, now that your curious… where do you find these products? Right here! Whether you are wanting to add the treatment to your next appointment, take home the shampoo and try it for yourself, or both for the ultimate shine and health of your hair, look no further! Whether you already have an appointment with us or are looking to book one, ask about our Pre-Art treatment and how to get set up for one! Our Pre-Art treatment is ideal before any color service as it allows the color to penetrate the hair without a barrier caused by product buildup and other polluters. This treatment levels the porosity of hair for even color results. For the best results, after your treatment, take home our Redken Hair Cleansing Cream, the ultimate clarifying shampoo. Containing AHA fruit acid complex, a combination of sugar cane, lemon fruit extract, apple fruit, and camellia leaf, this shampoo is best for extracting polluters and product buildup from the hair to strengthen the cuticle and add shine. Unlike many other clarifying shampoos that can strip the hair of color and toners, this shampoo is suitable for all hair types, including color treated hair. You can pickup this product in the salon, or on our website!
