Fall Detox: Repair Summer Hair Damage

Alicia Boal



As we transition into fall, our hair is often left damaged from all the fun in the sun.  All those long days spent in the sunshine and swimming in chlorine and salt water have taken their toll.  If your locks need some summer rehab, here are some quick tips and tricks to undo the damage and get your hair fabulous for fall

It's important to keep in mind that even though the summer has passed, your hair's exposure to the sun is year round. Your best defense is to use products that provide UV protection.  Luckily, many of our haircare brands offer products to protect your locks.  Our top pick for fall is the NEW Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair shampoo & conditioner.  The shampoo is a gentle, sulfate-tree cleanser that protects, replenishes and helps repair damaged and color treated hair.  The conditioner is an ideal daily hydrator, detangler and contains powerful antioxidants that provide UV protection to help prevent color fade and damage.

Replenish Moisture

  1. Start by rinsing hair with hot water to open the hair’s cuticle.
  2. Apply It's a 10 Miracle Hair Mask to bottom half of hair (avoid the scalp area)
  3. Leave mask on for  three- five minutes
  4. Rinse out with cool water to seal the cuticle and lock in moisture
  5. Repeat weekly for best results

Be sure to ask your Hair Cuttery stylist for more customized tips on products to get your hair healthy and refreshed for fall and the coming cold temperatures.  All products mentioned are now available at all Hair Cuttery locations, so just walk in for our Smile Back Guarantee service and stock up on great haircare products for you and your family.  Have a safe and happy fall season!
