Are you struggling in this heat? Having to turn on your hair dryer to make you feel hotter and then sweat more is a nightmare.
Why not let Amanda, Elaine or Melanie take care of your hair. A weekly blow dry is only 10.00 euros. Hair appointments can
be booked by phone, email or in person.
1) Find a shampoo that lathers less. Sudsy doesn't necessarily mean clean-sometimes, it means
the opposite. Shampoos that lather too much are often overloaded with moisturizing products, which can
leave build-up in your hair, making it look and feel dirtier quicker. So opt for a sulfate-free
2) Give your locks a burst of cold. Before you hop out of the shower, turn the cold water on
for a second and quickly rinse it through your strands. It helps seal the cuticle, adding a sleek
finish to your locks.
3) Play hot-and-cold as you dry. When using a round brush to dry your hair in sections, start
from the roots and dry all the way to the ends, letting the brush linger at the tips of your strands.
Let your hair cool off like this on its own for five seconds, then repeat on another section.
Alternating between heat and cool-down time helps set your style and your blowout will have more
4) Drop the towel. Keeping wet strands wrapped in a towel for a half-hour as you do your
make-up will just cause frizz! The roughness of the cotton forces your hair cuticles open, making
them more likely to go every-which-way. Instead, squeeze out excess water as soon as you're out of
the shower, then let your hair air-dry for five or ten minutes before blow drying.
5) Apply products 10 minutes before you style. Whether you're curling or straightening,
applying product 10 minutes in advance helps it fully absorb into your strands so you get all of
its benefits and more bang for your buck.
