How to Protect Your Hair From Chlorine

The effects of chlorine on the hair are that it can feel brittle to touch and chlorine can strip the hair of its natural lubricant, called sebum. If you swim frequently, the repeated drying can cause your hair’s protective cuticles to weaken, which can lead to split ends and breakage.

The only way to really prevent chlorine damage to hair is to wear a swimming cap when in the pool. You can also invest in a chlorine-removing shampoo.

Once you’re back from your holidays, book an appointment at Gavin Ashley Hair Salon in Bury St Edmunds for a professional Olaplex conditioning treatment to help restore your hair to its pre-holiday health.

Gavin Ashley Hairdressing Salon Explain How to Prevent Frizz

Do you long to be able to tame your frizzy hair and have soft smooth locks instead?

Frizzy hair is one of the biggest summer hair problems we hear about, and each year our clients ask us how to prevent frizz in the heat and humidity.

We offer long-lasting hair straightening and smoothing treatments by Kerastraight to give you more managable locks. Frizz is caused by a lack of moisture in the hair, common on hot and humid summer days, meaning we need to put moisture back into hair to prevent frizz.

Serums and hair oils are the most popular anti-frizz products for summer hair problems, and the hair experts in Gavin Ashley’s Hair Salon in Bury St Edmunds can help advise you on the best anti-frizz products for you.

How Best to Protect Hair from Heat Damage

We are good at remembering to protect our skin against the heat and sun but often forget to apply anything to our hair. The warm sun can cause hair to dry out which in turn may lead to breakage and split ends.

Use a heat protection spray and hair products containing UV protection. Of course, wearing a hat in the sunshine is always a good idea, but if not, try tying your hair into a ponytail, plait or bun to keep your hair neat and tidy.
