How do I transition from summer blonde to a darker blonde/brown for fall? I’m scared!
(As published in the “What the Pros Know” section of the September 11th, 2013 edition of the Lake Stevens Journal.)
Here in the Northwest, our summer sun is super damaging to hair, with all the UVA and UVB rays. Environmental conditions open up the cuticle and inner structure of the hair. One of the best ways to transition to a darker and softer look is to use products which offer protection, protein and reconstruction.
First, you need a deep reconstructing product; one that has a fortifying complex that strengthens the cortex, locks in proteins, while also reinforcing surface protection and beautiful shine. Next you need a thermal protectant, which will prevent your cuticle from breaking, becoming dry and dull.
Taking just a few minutes a day to add to your daily routine will help with a soft, non-damaging transition to hair that complements our beautiful fall season! Product suggestions include: Pureology Heat Spray Primer and Redken Strength Builder. Both will lock in the moisture and proteins the hair so desperately needs. Ultimately, you will have an easy and beautiful transition to a darker season of hair color!
