It’s hard to believe that the holidays have come and gone! Now here we are in January, in the thick of winter with a storm looming for the weekend. Blah! Besides cold weather and snow, most of us have to deal with the winter brittle. You know what I’m talking about, when your hair starts looking more like a straw broom than the glossy locks you work so hard to maintain. Well, the good news is that none of us are immune to the effects of the cold, dry weather, so you’re not alone.


Here’s what’s even better, we have just what you need to whip your hair right back into shape. Whether you’re visiting the salon or treating your hair at home, here are some ideas and products that can help to infuse shine back into those locks.

1. Trim Those Ends

By scheduling regular trims you’re allowing your hair to grow with less breakage and thinning. Besides, having healthy hair is critical to the shine factor. Trims help your hair look thicker and fuller, make styling easier, minimize frizz, retain hair length….Really, do you need any more reasons? Schedule your appointments in advance and all you have to do is show up and be dazzled!


2. Get a Conditioning Treatment

Coming in for a cut or color, why not add a conditioning treatment? For as little $10, you can add a thirst-quenching treatment that will invigorate your hair. We have a variety of services to suit your needs, from a deep conditioning treatment to our Redken Chemistry System service which can give you immediate results. Ask your stylist what is best for you and your hair type. Can’t get in to the salon? No worries, we have at home hair products that would do the trick. Either way, your hair will thank you for it.


3. Wash Your Hair Less Frequently

Washing your hair every day will strip out more moisture. Try washing your hair less frequently and intermittently using a dry shampoo. Goldwell’s Bodifying Dry Shampoo or the Redken Pillow Proof Two Day Extender, which comes in original and brunette, work wonders for extending your style between washes. We now carry two new Redken dry shampoos that also offer light to medium hold. Come on in and we can walk you through the right product for your hair type.
