Green Hair, Don't Care?

Unless you're wearing the latest vivid colour, chemical green hair is not a good look. If you've got light hair, naturally or from bleaching or highlights, you may notice a green tint after spending a lot of time in swimming pools. The key is to clarify the hair each time you're in the pool so that the minerals that cause the discolouration don't build up. Try a detox shampoo like SOLU Sea Salt Scrub. But if your hair feels oddly slippery when wet and if the green colour has really attached itself, book an in-salon Natural Tech Detoxifying Treatment to de-mineralize the hair and remove the green.

Our Favourite Post Pool Shampoo

The SOLU Sea Salt Scrub Cleanser by Davines is a great solution for green hair, pool water, well water with copper and water softening systems that may leave the hair discoloured. The Sea Salt Scrub is a scalp scrub and clarifying shampoo all in one. It's a thorough detox without being harsh. It refreshes the scalp and removes sunscreen residue, sand, sweat and other polluting particles. The sea salt has the added benefit of giving your hair a little texture too! And it's very pleasantly scented! Voted Best Clarifying Treatment 2020, Women's Health.

Soften & Detangle Wet Hair

Worried that your hair will feel too dry after a thorough detox? You'll love OI All in One Milk, a lightweight leave-in spray treatment that instantly softens, detangles, controls frizz and protects the hair from heat. Its lasting fragrance is irresistible. This is a must-have for your summer bag. Definitely a client favourite.

UV and Heat Protection

Whether you have colour treated hair or not, you should always protect your hair from the sun's intense rays and heat. When hair dries out, it gets brittle, loses elasticity and starts to break when brushing. If you have color treated hair, UV rays will fade your color and turn lightened hair brassy. With a few simple steps you can protect your hair. Limit temperatures, and that goes for your shower water, hair dryer, flat iron or curling wands.  Use them less often, especially in the summer, and use the lowest setting possible.
