Winter Hair Care Tips

Winter Hair Care Tips

As winter blankets us in a snowy embrace, our hair often bears the brunt of the season's chill. The cold, dry air can leave your locks feeling brittle, frizzy, and lacking lustre. Fear not! With a little extra care and attention, you can keep your mane looking fabulous all winter long. Here are some essential winter hair care tips from the Salon@Church team to keep your tresses in top-notch condition.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

Winter air tends to be dry, both outdoors and indoors. This lack of moisture can leave your hair parched and prone to breakage. Combat this by staying hydrated from the inside out. Drink plenty of water to keep your hair and scalp moisturized.

Deep Conditioner = Hair Saviour

During the colder months, it’s important to give your hair some extra love with deep conditioning treatments. Use a nourishing hair mask at least once a week to replenish lost moisture. One product we couldn't be more in love with is Design Me’s Hydrating Treatment Mask! This mask is made with a blend of plant-powered oils and proteins to nourish and strengthen hair to add the perfect amount of smoothness and shine. If you’re looking to pamper yourself and up the self-care we suggest booking a hair treatment with our team. 

Turn Down the Heat

Taking a hot shower is undeniably relaxing, but here's a hair care secret: hot water can actually strip away your hair's natural oils. To maintain your hair's health and hydration, consider opting for lukewarm water in the shower instead of hot water, as it helps minimize dryness. It's also essential to be mindful of heated styling tools. To prevent further damage, it's advisable to limit their use. If you find it necessary, always remember to apply a heat protectant spray beforehand. At our salon, we love using Design Me's Leave-in Treatment as a pre-styling essential. It not only shields your strands from heat but also adds the perfect touch of shine to achieve that radiant look.

Trim Away the Trouble

It’s always important to keep on your hair trims! We always suggest scheduling a trim to get rid of any dry, split ends. Regular trims not only keep your hair looking healthy but also prevent split ends from travelling up the hair shaft and causing more significant damage. If you’re ready to schedule your winter hair cut we’re here to help! Browse our available appointments here.


Winter may be chilly, but your hair doesn't have to suffer. By incorporating these winter hair care tips into your routine along with using salon-approved products, you'll be well on your way to maintaining luscious locks all season long. Get ready to embrace the beauty of winter, and let your hair shine with Salon@Church!

Our stylists can help you find the perfect shade to make a statement and have you looking your best all summer long! Keep reading to browse our top 4 must-try hair colours that are sure to be trending all summer long!

Sun-Kissed Balayge

Embrace summer with a sun-kissed balayage, a popular hair colour technique that mimics the natural highlights created by the sun. Think soft, golden tones that blend beautifully with your base colour, creating a low-maintenance look perfect for effortless summer vibes. Our stylists recommend using Redken’s Hair Cleaning Shampoo to clarify your hair from any pool chemicals or pollutants. Complete your hair regime with Redken’s All Soft Conditioner to keep your hair hydrated and soft all summer long!

Vibrant Colour Blocking

Colour blocking is a vibrant and artistic trend that involves combining contrasting shades in distinct sections of your hair. This technique creates visually striking blocks of colour that add depth and dimension to your hairstyle. Colour blocking is perfect for summer and allows you to express your unique style! We recommend using Redken’s Colour Extend Magnetics Shampoo and Conditioner as it has intense UV-A and B protection to keep your colour bright and vibrant!

Fiery Red 

What better way to embrace the season than with a fiery red hair colour? We love red hair as it is bold, vibrant, and full of personality. Not only does it complement a wide range of skin tones, but it also adds a sizzling touch to your overall look! The perfect product for redheads is Redken’s One United as it is an all-in-one leave-in product that protects, smooths, and strengthens your hair.

Beachy Blonde 

Nothing says summer quite like beachy blonde hair. This classic, sun-kissed shade is effortlessly chic. Our stylists can help you choose a warm, honey-toned blonde or a cooler, platinum hue. Beachy blonde is versatile and suits various hairstyles, making it the go-to choice for summer. To keep up with your at-home maintenance we suggest using Design Me’s Gloss Me Shampoo, Conditioner and Mask to keep your hair soft and hydrated. This product line is perfect for summer as it helps protect your hair from heat and environmental damage.

Best Ways to Protect Your Hair From Sun Damage

Best Ways to Protect Your Hair From Sun Damage
 

The summer sun brings warmth, joy, and so many outdoor activities. While we often take precautions to protect our skin from harmful UV rays, it's equally important to shield our hair from the sun's damaging effects. Excessive sun exposure can lead to dryness, brittleness, discoloration, and frizz - but don't fret! The Salon@Church team is here to share some effective ways to protect your hair from UV rays this summer, along with recommended products to keep your locks healthy and vibrant!

Opt For UV-Protecting Products

The easiest way to protect your hair from harmful sun rays is to use specially formulated products that contain UV filters and protective ingredients! These products can act as a barrier against the sun's damaging rays. A leave-in conditioner we love is Redken’s One United! This leave-in conditioner is perfect for the summer as it primes your hair for styling while protecting it from external aggressors including the sun's UV rays. Redken’s One United is also great as it helps prevent colour fading, dryness, and breakage caused by prolonged sun exposure! 

Another protective product that is new to Salon@Church is Design Me’s Hydrating Mask. This hydrating mask is the perfect product to add to your summer routine as it adds a ton of shine, boosts hydration, and encourages the repair of damaged hair! Visit us in salon to shop Design Me’s incredible product lines! 

Don’t Forget Your Hat!

When you’re out and about this summer don't forget to pack a hat! Opt for a cap or wide-brimmed hat to provide maximum scalp, hair, and face coverage. This not only safeguards your hair from harmful UV rays but also adds a stylish touch to your summer outfits.    

Limit Exposure During Peak Hours

When the sun's rays are at their strongest, usually between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., try to limit your hair's exposure to direct sunlight. Seek shade whenever possible if you'll be outdoors for extended periods. Doing this can significantly reduce UV damage and keep your hair healthier in the long run.


As you enjoy the sunny days of summer, it's crucial to protect your hair from the damaging effects of UV rays. By implementing these simple yet effective tips and using hair products with UV protection, you can keep your locks vibrant, and healthy all summer long. At Salon@Church, we can help you look and feel your best with a fresh cut, colour, or style just in time for summer! Don’t forget to browse our new Design Me products in salon to find the perfect product to add to your hair regime.
