Read our five tips below to learn more about maintaining your hairstyle after your visit to one of our hair salons.
Don’t Wash Hair Too Often
Shampooing too often will strip your hair of natural oils that are meant to keep hair from drying out. While washing is necessary to maintain proper balance of these oils, over-washing can cause hair to dry out and increase the chances for frizz and breakage. Taking breaks between washing your hair is important in maintaining a good balance of these oils. When you are washing, be sure you’re using the right shampoo for your haircut. If you’ve had highlights or other color treatments, find a shampoo specifically designed for color treated hair to help maintain your color between visits to the salon.
While everyone should include conditioner in their hair care routine, conditioner can especially be a lifesaver for color-treated hairstyles. The process of coloring hair tends to dry it out, even if your hair stylist is using a moisture-infused color system. Be sure to use conditioner when washing your hair to prevent it from drying out. Conditioner will also bring back any moisture that may have been lost due to coloring or over-washing. Looking to switch up your conditioning routine? Our hair stylists love the Masque Intense from Kerastase!

Sleep on Silk Pillowcases
Silk pillowcases let our hair flow freely as we sleep, helping to prevent tangles. Silk or satin fabrics also decrease frizz. Standard cotton pillowcase fabrics have a tendency to cause friction, rubbing against our hair and causing hair to become frizzy or kinked – the definition of bed head. Although silk pillowcases can be a bit more expensive compared to their cotton counterparts, it’s a small price to pay to avoid waking up with matted, frizzy hair.
Give Hot Tools a Break
If you think about it, we put our hair through a lot. We brush and blow-dry hair, load it up with product, and pull and style our hair into place each day. Blow-drying causes hair to dry quickly, but potentially damages strands in the process. Using too many hair products can weigh hair down, and many heavy products don’t allow hair to breathe. Give your hair a rest by taking a day off from blow-drying and using products like dry shampoo, hairspray, and mousse. This will help your hair grow longer and stronger between cuts.

Ask Your Hair Stylist for Tips
While you’re still in the chair at the salon is the perfect time to get some pointers from your hair stylist on how to maintain your new style! Don’t be afraid to ask for direction from your stylist. Our hair stylists specialize in crafting custom haircuts for our clients. They have years of training and experience and have usually figured out a few of their own best practices for keeping their hairstyle looking fresh. They might recommend a certain product that will do the trick, or a washing method that can help maintain hair color and texture. In may cases, a good hair stylist will be happy to share their tips and tricks for maintaining your specific hairstyle between visits.
Whatever your style, learning the ins and outs of keeping it up will help you feel your best between trips to the hair salon. Need a fresh new look for Fall?
