Prepare Your Hair For Summer With Advice from Aurora Hairdressing Salon in Northampton

Summer's just around the corner, which means we're all looking forward to sunshine, beaches and relaxation.  We all know that we need to protect our skin when we go out in the sun, but it’s easy to forget that our hair needs protection too.

The sun’s UV rays can play havoc with your locks, leaving them faded, dry, frizzy and straw-like, while sea salt and chlorine from holiday pools can make matters even worse.  It's important to ensure your hair is in top condition for summer and protect it from damage with these top tips for healthy summer hair from the experts at our Northampton hair salon.

Summer Hair Care Tips from Aurora Hairdressing in Northampton







1.  Book Regular Appointments at Aurora Hairdressing in Northampton

Make sure you book an appointment with your Aurora hair stylist for regular trims over the summer.  This will keep your hair looking beautifully healthy and keep pesky split ends at bay. 

It’s especially important to book in for a trim when you return from holiday, as well as your appointment before you travel.   This is to trim away those beach-frazzled ends.  We recommend booking in advance when you visit the salon for your pre-holiday appointment.

2.  Ensure You Use The Correct Home Hair Care Products

To make sure your hair is in the best possible condition to face the challenges of summer heat and sunshine, it's important to take a look at your home hair care regime.  At our Northampton salon we stock a full range of professional hair care products from L'Oreal Professional.   Speak to your Aurora stylist who knows your hair and will be able to recommend the products you need.   For example:

For Damaged Hair - try Absolut Repair.  Designed to reduce surface damage by 77% and make your hair up to 7 times shinier.

For Blonde Hair -  we recommend Blondifier.  Containing purple pigments to banish brassiness, this range will revive your blonde and keep your hair shiny and radiant.

For Long Hair - try Prolonger, the first professional haircare range specifically designed for longer hair.  Visibly reduces split ends by 94% to help you keep the hair you love.

For Curly Hair - we recommend Curl Expression.  Designed to supercharge your curls and coils with professional hydration.

3.  Protect Your Hair from the Sun's Harsh UV Rays

If you’re travelling somewhere hot for your holidays, or even if you’re having a stay-cation, it’s important to protect your hair from the sun’s UV rays.   You can simply use a hat or scarf to cover your hair, but we'd also recommend that you consider investing in hair products with UV protection.  These will protect your hair without leaving it lank and greasy. 

We recommend L'Oreal's Solar Sublime range, which nourishes and protects your hair from UV rays.

4.  Transform Your Hair's Condition With An In-Salon Treatment

For smoother, shinier locks and vibrant colour this summer, speak to your Aurora stylist about adding an In-Salon Treatment to your hair service.    We can recommend the best treatment for your particular hair concerns.  Options include L'Oreal Power Mix, which is a masque which can be adapted for your needs including protecting coloured hair, adding shine and softness and hydrating dry, damaged hair.

We also offer the Joico K-PAK Hair Repair System which includes powerful active ingredients to repair and strengthen your hair, exactly where it needs it.   Our popular Olaplex treatment is also available as a standalone treatment, which can really transform your hair from within by rebuilding its internal bonds.

5.  Banish Summer Frizz with a Nanokeratin Hair Smoothing Treatment

Summer heat and humidity are a leading cause of frizzy hair, and who wants to look like Monica from Friends on her trip to Barbados?!   To make sure your hair stays sleek and beautiful this summer, we recommend investing in a Nanokeratin hair smoothing treatment.  This outstanding treatment is designed to transform your hair, delivering improved elasticity, strength and shine in just one treatment.  The results will last for up to four months. 

We also offer L'Oreal Liss Unlimited, a product range designed to keep your hair sleek and smooth, whatever the weather.   Perfect for rebellious hair!
