Hey there, BLNDE babes! We know summer is approaching fast (even if it feels like a slow burn) and with that season comes that busted and broken look that leave you looking like you just got out of a hardcore Cody Ridgsby 45 minutes 90's pop ride. Even though we are #boocrew all the way, what if we embraced preventive measures instead of waiting until we're in full-blown "Oops, I Did It Again" mode with our hair? You know, like Britney in the early 2000s – iconic, but maybe not the vibe we're going for with our hair color. As we gear up for the warmer months, let's take a cue from our favourite pop icons and get ahead of the game before we find ourselves busted and broken.

And let's not forget about those dreaded split ends that seem to multiply faster then the mosquitoes during the Saskatchewan summer. But fear not, because with a little strategic planning and some expert advice, we can conquer the summer hair woes before they even have a chance to rain on our parade. So grab your sunglasses and your favorite summer playlist – we're about to embark on a hair adventure like no other!

Saying BYE BYE BYE to Split Ends

Hey, we started with the 90's references so we may as well finish it up! First up, let's talk about the power of regular haircuts. Ever noticed how getting a haircut instantly makes your entire color look fresh and revitalized? It's like waving a wand and saying "abracadabra" – except instead of pulling a rabbit out of a hat, you're trimming away split ends and revealing the true beauty of your hair color. Spring an summer can be rough on our hair and one of the first places we see it is our ends! Did you know that on average, human hair grows at a rate of about half an inch per month, but split ends can cause hair to break off faster than it grows, leading to the appearance of stunted hair growth? Our expert stylists recommend scheduling regular trims to keep your hair healthy, strong, and free from those pesky split ends that can dull your color and drag down your overall look.

But here is one of the best kept secrets you may not know about – daily hair oil treatments. Incorporating a daily hair oil, such as the luxurious Kerastase Elixir Ultime, into your routine can work wonders for your color-treated locks by smoothing down those end to look healthier. This nourishing elixir helps to hydrate and protect your strands, keeping them moisturized, frizz-free, and oh-so-glossy all summer long. It's like giving your hair a daily dose of love and care, ensuring that your color stays vibrant and radiant for weeks to come.
