End of Summer Hair Care

We know you’re not ready for this summer to be over..But your hair might be!

These hot, heavy days of summer might have taken its toll on your hair! The sun, heat, chlorine and even saltwater can cause dryness and strip out moisture and color from your hair! Crazy right?? Not to worry, I’m here to give you my professional guide to healthy, shiny, beautiful hair!


First, let’s talk detox!

Redken’s Hair Cleansing Cream shampoo strengthens the hair cuticle and removes daily build up from hard water, swimming pools, saltwater and even build up from styling products! It also makes your scalp so clean it’s pretty mind blowing.


Next, your base!

The main key to your hair’s recovery is to start with the RIGHT shampoo and conditioner. Pureology’s Strength Cure line is by far my fave!! It repairs damage, gives hair strength and softness, helps prevent future damage, is sulfate free, 100% Vegan and has Vitamin E to fight color fading! I’m completely obsessed!!


The key is consistency…

Make sure to use this regimen consistently for the best results! First, use Redken’s Hair Cleansing Cream shampoo. Use just like any shampoo and rinse well.

Next, use Pureology’s Strength Cure Shampoo and rinse. Pureology is highly concentrated so it doesn’t take a lot! The little flower on the top of the cap is the amount to use. Ring out as much water as you can and then follow up with Pureology’s Strength Cure Conditioner.

If you are really feeling like your hair needs some extra love, you can do a mask once a week. Pureology’s Strength Cure Superfood mask is great to use every so often in place of the Strength Cure conditioner!

Hot tip: if you let your hair naturally dry overnight, that’s less heat and mechanical damage on your hair! Get faster results and restore more moisture!

How Well Do YOU Know Your ABC?

Our hair has ups and downs just like we do. Over time it can become damaged for literally a million reasons if it’s not getting the support it needs. Then when your hair is damaged or not doing its best, we slap on oils or even try using DIY treatments praying to see the slightest improvement. No more girl, we have the solution! Redken’s Aciding Bonding Concentrate System aka ABC.

What is ABC and why is it different from anything else? You’ve heard it all before- “this product is hydrating, strengthening, bla bla bla”, BUT this particular system does all that and more. Did you know your hair has its own pH level? Balancing your hair’s pH level helps to seal the hair cuticle, prevents unwanted breakage and locks in natural oils. A balanced pH acts as protection against bacteria and fungus. Maintaining your hair’s pH balance between 4.5-5.5 is the goal. The new Redken Aciding Bonding Concentrate (ABC) is a 3 step process that includes shampoo, conditioner and a leave-in treatment that restores, strengthens, and hydrates dry and damaged hair. ABC heals the hair, whether it be from highlighting, color services, excessive blow drying/ using heat tools, and even from sun exposure and wind. It’s also going to reduce breakage, mend split ends and obviously.. balance the pH of your hair.

The Shampoo itself has 7% citric acid ($31.90), the Conditioner has 11% citric acid ($31.90), and the Acidic Leave- In Conditioner has 5% citric acid ($31.90). Before you google citric acid I got you! Citric acid is known to balance the pH level of your scalp and stimulate hair follicles. Like I said, your hair’s pH level should be 4.5- 5.5. Remember this prevents unwanted breakage and locks in natural oils. It basically acts as a protection shield!


We also have a treatment that goes with the ABC system at Genesis starting at $18. You can get this treatment when you come in for color services or even just for a haircut! This treatment can be customizable so it can fit your hair needs! Amazing right?!

Y’all I’m just in love with these products like seriously Redken did the dang THING with this game changer! So come on in and talk to your stylist about the Acidic Bonding Concentrate your will thank you.
