Hair Queen News

With so many people coming and going on vacation I wanted to remind everyone of a few easy summer hair care tips to keep your locks looking great by the pool, on the beach, or being active on a bike ride or hike.

Summer Hair Care Tips
  • Wear a cute hat or cap to protect your hair and scalp from too much sun.
  • Let your hair air dry instead of a heated hair dryer.
  • Put a little conditioner and water in a spray bottle and wet your hair before getting into the pool to help your hair absorb less chlorine or salt water.
  • Use leave in conditioner on the ends of your hair after shampooing to keep moisture in.
  • Rinse your hair with COLD water to make your hair shinier! (yup, COLD! brrr!)
  • Use a chlorine-removing shampoo after swimming in a chlorinated pool  
  • Get your hair trimmed every 6 weeks to promote growth and to keep the ends healthy.
  • Drink water often to keep yourself hydrated — when you drink enough water, your hair looks its best. So make sure you don’t let yourself feel thirsty. That’s a sure sign you need a few glasses of water!

Runs Businesses With Scissors

Whether you are a business owner, a hard working professional, or an even harder working parent, vacation is always essential to take a mental break from the day-to-day. Taking “down time” nurtures creativity and brings your mind, body, and soul back into alignment to really come back and attack your business, career, and family with the positivity that is necessary. Check out this great article that highlights the health benefits of taking vacation and stepping away from work.
