Get Set For Summer!

Prepare Your Hair for Summer with Stephen Young Salon in West Wimbledon

Who doesn't love the summer? It's important to remember that while basking in the glorious sunshine, the warmer months can also damage your hair. The sun, sea salt, and pool chlorine can all leave your hair dry and prone to breakage. That's why it's crucial to stock up on the best products for healthy hair this summer from the experts at Stephen Young Salon in West Wimbledon.

Maintain Healthy Hair with the Right Cleansing Products

During summer, we tend to wash our hair more frequently due to the accumulation of sweat, suntan oils, and styling products. This can make our hair greasy and weighed down. Unfortunately, many shampoos contain harsh detergents that can dry out the hair, leading to split ends and breakage.

Instead, opt for a sulphate-free hair care range that effectively cleanses your hair without stripping it of moisture and causing brittleness. Additionally, incorporating a clarifying shampoo or scalp scrub into your routine can eliminate product build-up, leaving your hair and scalp feeling refreshed.

Combat Frizz and Maintain Smooth Hair

If you're struggling with frizz due to the summer humidity, there's no need to worry. Stephen Young Salon has several solutions for this common summer hair problem. Our salon stocks a range of professional products designed to nourish, soothe, and smooth stressed strands, effectively eliminating frizz.

Additionally, we offer the Nanokeratin hair smoothing service, which can help you achieve smooth, frizz-free hair for up to four months.

Preserve Vibrant Hair Colour

The sun's rays can cause your hair colour to fade, so it's important to take preventative measures. At Stephen Young Salon, we recommend using the Davines Heart of Glass range to keep your gorgeous colour looking vibrant. Treat your hair to the Davines Heart of Glass mask, a weekly deep conditioning treatment that nourishes dehydrated, colour-treated hair.

To further prevent colour fade and overheating, protect your hair from the sun by covering it up and using an SPF hair product. This will help maintain both the colour and condition of your locks. Another effective tip to keep your colour looking vibrant in summer is to rinse with cool water, as it helps keep the hair cuticles closed and reduces colour fade.

Defend Against Chlorine Damage

Chlorine in swimming pools can leave your hair incredibly dry and wreak havoc on its colour and condition. To prevent colour fade and hair breakage caused by chlorine, we recommend wearing a swimming cap or investing in a chlorine-removing shampoo. You should also wet your hair prior to jumping in a pool, as this coats your hair with clean water and reduces the absorption of chlorinated water. 

Once you've returned to your normal routine, consider booking a professional conditioning treatment at our Wimbledon hair salon to inject moisture back into your hair.

Chlorine Protection For Hair

Protect Your Hair from Heat and UV Rays

To keep your hair healthy and beautiful throughout the summer, it's essential to use a good heat protection spray and hair products that contain UV protection. 

To protect your hair during sun exposure, it is advisable to use Davines SU Hair Milk. This lightweight leave-in conditioner shields your hair from harmful UV rays, providing hydration and leaving it soft and manageable.

Using Davines SU Aftersun in your hair provides soothing relief and replenishment after sun exposure, helping to restore moisture and vitality to your locks. Its nourishing formula helps counteract the drying effects of the sun, leaving your hair refreshed and rejuvenated.

Whenever possible, cover your hair or tie it back when you're in the sun. Additionally, avoid overusing heated styling appliances such as straighteners and hairdryers.
