SUMMER HAIRCARE: EASY AS 3-4-5

Olaplex

Before you clock in on that vacation time, there are a few essentials that will make soaking up the sun and water that much better. Sunblock? Check. Swimsuits? Check. Clothing? Check. Olaplex? If you haven’t packed it already, you seriously should. Taking Olaplex on your summer holiday ensures you won’t return home with crispy, crunchy, dry locks after all that fun in the sun and water.

Healthy hair on vacation (or stay-cation for you hustlers out there!) is as easy as the Olaplex 3-4-5 system. We’re talking about the Olaplex No.3 Treatment, Olaplex No.4 Shampoo, and Olaplex No.5 Conditioner.

Remember, Olaplex is customizable to your lifestyle. You don’t have to be indoors at home to have amazing hair. Olaplex Ambassador, Bianca Hillier, applies No.3 while on vacation and keeps it on while she lays out in the sun, or takes a dip in the pool. Olaplex No.3 repairs the broken disulfide bonds in the hair, leaving you with healthier hair than before, but it does not hydrate. If dry hair is your vice on vacation, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with that too. If your hair is feeling dry from too much salt water, consider laying out with Olaplex No.5 in your hair for a moisturizing treatment. This will give your hair the moisture and strength it needs– just remember to rinse it out afterwards!

Ready, jet-set, go! Relax knowing Olaplex is doing all the work while you enjoy the summer sun.

 

Return of the hair accessory

Why you need scrunchies & scarves in your life – Hello Hair

If you’re a Sex And The City fan, you might recall Carrie declaring in an episode that no woman in Manhattan would be caught dead rocking a scrunchie. She might backtrack on that statement now! Scrunchies and other cute hair accessories are back in a big way, and are popping up all over social media.

Are you thinking its time to up your hair game with some cute accessories?! You’ll be happy to know that not only are scrunchies fun to add to your look, they’re also beneficial for your hair in comparison to normal hair elastics.

Ever get a ‘too tight ponytail headache’ by the end of each day, release your ponytail, and feel so much relief?! If you’re wearing a scrunchie, your hair won’t be under so much strain and you’ll minimize your risk of strands ripping out at the same time.

Hair scarves are also an amazing addition to any up-do. Having a boring hair day? Add an accessory to your look and it will make it so much more exciting.

It’s time to spring clean

From tech & wardrobe to hair

his season marks a time to refresh, clean out, and reflect. Time to clean things up, clear things out, and look forward for a renewed you for spring. Here’s how…

1. Do a tech detox – When you hear the phrase “tech detox” you probably think take some time off your phone to unplug. And while that’s all well and good to do often, I’m referring to actually cleaning up the contents on your phone so that it’s less cluttered and less distracting.

2. File away your email inbox – Take an afternoon to create a filing system for your email inbox.

3. Tackle your wardrobe – Now that we’ve gotten two tech tips out of the way, it’s time to dive into spring-cleaning physical items and areas of your house. Many of us clean out our closets regularly, and spring is an especially great time to go through the items you didn’t reach for all winter long and make room for new spring and summer purchases.

4. Spring clean your beauty routine – Take some time this season to wash your makeup brushes and replace old ones that have seen better days. Similarly, throw out and replace old makeup palettes, mascaras, lipsticks and everything in between.

5. Spring clean your hair – There’s no better way to start fresh than with the beautiful, clean lines of a good haircut or trim. You’ll get the swing, the bounce, the crisp edge, and that I-just-left-the-salon spring in your step.

The new season trend

The short of it – Marie Claire Sept 2018.

Hair is being lopped off this season, so if you are considering a big change, this is your moment.

The current must-have haircut would have to be well above the shoulder with multi-dimensional layers and textures. It’s current, it’s short and it’s sexy. It says, I have confidence!

Kim’s new hairstyle

3 Easy tips to winter-proof your hair

Kylie and Kendall Jenner’s hairstylist shares 3 easy tips to winter-proof your hair.  Love them or hate them, they always have great hair.

With winter firmly upon us our locks need a little extra TLC so they don’t turn dry, dull and withered thanks to all that time spent huddled over the heater. But what precisely should we do to winter-proof our hair? Vogue asked Colombini to share his best seasonal switch ups, so the cool temps don’t rob us of our lustrous locks. Here, the celebrity stylist shares his three best weather-proofing tips.

Seasonal shampoo switch-up: “As the seasons change our beauty regimen should also change. During the winter our hair and skin tends to be the driest. Just as you would use a heavier face cream [in winter], our shampoo and conditioner should also be stepped up with extra moisture to keep our hair from getting dull.”
Stop seasonal breakage: “The number one reason we get hair breakage is colour processing and the number two is environmental. Depending on the degree of breakage I recommend any kind of protein building hair mask.”
Brighten up dull locks: “If you ain’t got shine it ain’t going to be shiny, so fake it until you make it. I love hair oil [to fake shiny tresses].”
