Winter Care For Your Hair

I am sure you have noticed, it`s getting cold out there! What we may not know is just how
awful this cold wind can be for our hair. When it comes to our skin we recognize it because it can actually be quite painful. However, our hair feels that pain too! There are a couple of tips that we at evoke Salon start to talk to our guests about at this time of year. The trick is to start to prep your hair for what is next to come. The way we do this is to step up our moisturizing routines. We can achieve moisturized and prepared hair by the time it gets really cold outside, IF we start now. We recommend at- home treatments; it`s an easy and cost effective way to treat the hair to a little extra care.  In-salon treatments are often regarded as the only way to get a "real" treatment. The problem is they cost anywhere between $30-$80 for a one time fix, and cannot be seen as a long term cure. We recommend purchasing an intense moisturizing mask at the salon; you will get many more applications, and can treat your hair more frequently. That`s not all, in a salon your treatment would last about 1 hour, hardly enough time to make a real impact. We encourage our guests to develop a once or twice a week habit, throughout the winter months, and its easy to get hooked. All you have to do is give your hair a wash before bed, apply your mask from roots to ends, and comb it through. Once the mask is evenly applied, reach for a shower cap (or a bag) and cover your pinned up hair. The idea is to ensure that the cap is applied tightly, this will keep the heat from your scalp confined and allow for your hair shafts to open up and receive moisture.  Next step... sleep! I know, sounds rough to sleep with a bag on but think about it, that treatment is working for 8 hrs instead of 1. The results are incredible and worth one night of discomfort! There is NO better way to protect your hair and colour investment than to keep it well moisturized so.... Happy Treating!
