Seasons changing and climate changes can be great for fashion, but can wreak havoc on your hair. Even if you live in the warmest area, humidity and sun exposure and heat can cause damage. The great thing is that there are lines such as Nexxus Salon Haircare, one of the leaders in haircare bringing us the collections design to protect and repair damaged hair. Here are some of the fabulous lines that are must haves for all your haircare needs.
As per Nexxus:
While we all know that water is key to keeping our bodies healthy and hydrated, when it comes to haircare, effective hydration actually means keeping water out. Water can easily penetrate hair, causing the cuticle to swell, making hair feel rough and dry and acting as the catalyst for frizz. Proper moisturization starts on the outside of the hair with the right products, and conditioning formulas will help coat the cuticle and create that silky finish we all crave.
“Moisture treatments are an important part of prepping hair for a long lasting, successful style. No matter what look you are trying to achieve, properly hydrated hair will result in a better base – meaning smoother strands and more shine.” – Kevin Mancuso, Nexxus Creative Director and Celebrity Hairstylist
For ultimate hydration needs:
Tip #1: Indulge in a “Therappe” Session
Restore vital moisture by lathering up with Nexxus Therappe Luxurious Moisturizing Shampoo and following with Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing Conditioner. Therappe is formulated with a blend of Rosemary, Chamomile and Nettle to gently cleanse and nourish hair, while Humectress contains silicones, Vitamin E, Coconut Oil and Honey Extract for enhanced silkening effects. This decadent, super-hydrating combo will leave hair luxuriously soft, lustrous and perfectly prepped for styling.
Tip #2: Style Smart
Conditioning doesn’t end in the shower. Look for styling products with thermal protection and conditioning agents that will help prevent dehydration in the first place. You’ll enjoy a snag free brush glide experience that is gentle on hair and will reduce breakage.
Tip #3: “Treat” Yourself
Treat hair to an intensely moisturizing mask two to three times a week to maintain silky soft tresses. Nexxus Humectress Hydrating Treatment Deep Conditioner will restore dry hair to a normal balance, not only repairing damage but strengthening and protecting your hair from future aggressors like hard water, a dry climate, heated styling tools, etc.
Big hair tends to get a bad rap, but voluminous blow outs have been reincarnated on the red carpet in a softer, more natural way. Favored for events and premiers alike by celebs like Rachel McAdams and Mila Kunis, the updated style captivates attention with lots of movement that looks effortlessly glamorous.
“The key to a red carpet worthy, full-volume blow out is a lot of lift and flexibility. The look should be defined, yet touchably soft with ample movement – never stiff.” – Kevin Mancuso, Nexxus Creative Director
Check out these volume boosting tips from Nexxus Salon Hair Care and Nexxus Creative Director Kevin Mancuso:
Tip #1: “Clear” Things Up
The “right” shampoo varies from person to person. Women looking to add volume should choose a clear formula like Nexxus Diametress Luscious Volumizing Shampoo. It contains a high concentration of Panthenol, which penetrates the hair shaft from within to plump tresses and gently remove dulling impurities.
Tip #2: Condition Sparingly
If you have super fine hair, you may want to skip conditioning all together. Instead, opt for a hydrating styler like Nexxus Mousse Plus Volumizing Foam Styler. The lightweight, alcohol-free formula actually contains a conditioning agent, so hair receives the moisturization it needs while simultaneously increasing body and fullness.
Tip #3: Transform Your Texture
Thick, curly hair tends to stand up straighter at the root, giving it more volume than straight, fine locks. A fast way to transform limp hair that doesn’t support itself is to use your fingers to massage the root area after applying mouse. This roughs the cuticle up as opposed polishing it with a brush which can cause hair to collapse more easily.
To go with the fabulous repairing collection ProMend, launching in January 2012 comes the Promend styling collection:
From using our beloved flat irons and hot rollers every morning to stepping out in extreme weather conditions (summers and winters in NYC, anyone?), having unruly hair greatly impacts how we feel throughout the day. Luckily, Nexxus® Salon Hair Care is taking the guilt out of daily damage with two new launches – ProMend Styling and Frizz Defy– that are hitting drugstore shelves in January!
For those who want the freedom to style, Nexxus ProMend Styling is the answer. An extension of the original, award-winning line, Nexxus ProMend Styling provides the freedom to style while taking care of split end damage. ProMend technology contains a unique complex of positively and negatively charged polymers, which first stick to negatively charged hair and then stick to each to help bind ends back together.
For those who have a constant case of the frizzies, Nexxus Frizz Defy is the solution! Formulated with Moroccan Argan Oil and Coconut Extract, the products lock in essential nourishment while the Nexxus Frizz Defy Frizz Protection Aerosol Hair Spray locks out humidity to help maintain the proper moisture balance to control frizz and reduce up to 87% of frizz all day long.
