Keep Your Locks Looking Amazing this Summer!

Summer Hair Care
Summertime, and the living is easy…but not for your hair! Hot summer days can wipe out shine, change your color to a brassy hue and leave your locks feeling dry. Not to mention, high humidity, UV beach rays, chlorine and saltwater can dry out your hair even more!

Follow these summer hair care tips, and your locks will look and feel beautiful throughout the entire season!

Get a haircut. It’s always best to get a trim before summer, since the strong heat can cause extra damage to your hair, so its important to remove those dead ends. Most hair stylists generally recommend getting a trim every 6-8 weeks, but you may want to wait a little longer during the summer.

Get a conditioning treatment. Your hair stylist can recommend when it’s best to get a deep conditioning treatment, but most likely after a few beach trips your ends will be ready for one. The next time you are in the salon getting a trim, make sure to ask for one.

Lighten up your locks. Freshen up your brassy hue with a few more highlights. Even though your hair my gain some natural highlights while you’re out enjoying the sun, you stylist can add a few more in to avoid the dull look.

Scrub it out. If you’ve been out in the sun, you can give your hair the nourishment it needs at home, between salon trips. Choose a hydrating shampoo and conditioner for the summer months. You may also want to consider using a clarifying shampoo a few times a week to help reduce the build-up of chlorine and other harmful chemicals your hair has to endure.

Brush with care. Hair can be the most fragile when it’s wet, so don’t rip a brush through it after swimming. Use some detangler spray on it, and then use a wide-tooth comb to minimize breakage.

Wear a hat. Not into wearing a baseball cap while you’re outside? Try sporting a headband, turban, fedora or another cute summer hat. Find something fashionable and fun, while protecting those locks!

Schedule an appointment with your stylist. The most important thing you can do is schedule a salon appointment. Your stylist can look at your locks, and give you professional recommendations for what you need for the something months ahead! Contact Taboo Salon & Spa today to schedule an appointment, and we will make sure your summer do is amazing.


Winter Hair & Skin Care Tips

Winter Hair Care- Taboo Salon Quakertown PA

During the harsh cold months of winter, it’s crucial to take extra care of your hair. Cold weather can create havoc for your beautiful locks. Here are some simple tips for taking care of your hair during the coldest season of the year.

Adapt your hair care to the weather changes.

Look for a shampoo that will help keep your hair strong and healthy during the cold winter months. If you use the right treatment you’ll avoid it becoming a bigger issue. Look to buy shampoos and conditioners that focus on protecting and healing your dry hair and provide more moisture than you normally use.

Use a deep conditioning treatment. OFTEN.

You can purchase a hot oil or deep conditioning treatment to use at home. Although, it’s recommended that you visit your salon and ask your stylist to do a deep conditioning treatment. At Taboo Salon and Spa we have a a variety of deep conditioning treatments for all hair types and problems. Contact us today to schedule an appointment! Not only will a deep conditioning treatment help with dryness but it will also help with that annoying winter static and knots.

Avoid leaving the house with wet hair, and cover up!

In winter, it’s crucial that you dry your hair before you step out of the house into the cold air. It will pay off to wake up a tad earlier to blow dry your hair or let your hair air dry the night before. Going out in the cold winter weather with wet hair damages your ends and makes your hair even more dry and brittle. Make sure to cover up also. If you are going to be outside, especially in extremely cold temperatures or wine, use a cute scarf to protect your hair from the elements. Surprisingly, sun can be just as damaging in winter as it is in summer!

Don’t forget your skin!

Just like your hair, your skin will suffer just as much during the cold winter months. Remember to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Try lathering your feet and hands with your favorite lotion and put cotton gloves and cottons socks on while watching TV or something else relaxing. Your hands and feet will love you for it! Also, your face can get very dry and chapped—which is definitely not cute. Make sure you are using a rich face moisturizer, and not the same one you use in spring and summer months.

End of Summer Hair Care

Before you know it fall will be here! As the weather gets cooler and the leaves start changing your hair may need a change too. Taking care of your hair at the end of summer means some extra TLC and maybe a new look before the new season. After all, summer heat, days at the pool and beach trips can take a toll on the health of your locks. A professional hair salon in Upper Bucks County can help you get the hair care you need and the new look you want before fall begins.

Deep Conditioning Treatment
A good deep conditioning treatment can give your hair back the moisture it lost throughout the hot and humid months. Ask your hair stylist for a conditioning treatment next time you are in for your regular appointment. It will only take a few minutes and she can recommend a deep conditioning product to use at home.

Get Rid of Buildup
Those days spent poolside can do some serious damage to your hair. Switch out your normal shampoo with a clarifying one for a few weeks to help get rid of buildup on your strands. Many of the products we use throughout the summer to fight against humidity can actually add to the buildup. After just a few weeks of using clarifying shampoo your hair will feel look and feel healthier.

Haircut & Color
Looking for a new style for the season? Try mixing it up with some layers or bangs. If you aren’t interested in a makeover then at least invest in a trim. It will give your hair a fresh start for the season. Just a few inches off will greatly benefit the health of your hair. As for color, if you usually go lighter in the summer, fall is the time to go a little bit darker. You don’t need to make any extreme changes, ask your hair stylist to add some simple lowlights.
