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!

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!

A Makeup Routine Made for Mom!

A Makeup Routine Made for Mom! 

Mother's Day is a special occasion for all of us to celebrate the incredible women in our lives, and there's no better way to show your love and appreciation than with a thoughtful gift. For many moms, makeup is an essential part of their daily routine, but finding the right products and techniques can be a challenge. As we mature, our skin changes and makeup can sometimes accentuate fine lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections. The Salon@Church team is excited to share our best beauty secrets to help women look and feel their best!

Start With a Good Base

As we age, our skin becomes drier and loses elasticity, making it more challenging to apply makeup smoothly. It’s important to make sure mom is using a gentle cleanser and moisturizer that are specifically designed for her skin type.

Choosing the Right Makeup

For mature skin, our C-shield Anti-pollution moisture tint is ideal. It protects, perfects and hydrates skin without settling into fine lines or wrinkles. The weightless and radiant finish gives skin a youthful glow and the perfect amount of coverage.

Less Is More

Heavy eyeshadow or eyeliner can make mature eyes look small and tired. Instead, opt for colours that are neutral and with opposite undertones of your eye colour to make your eyes pop in a natural way. Choose one of our cream shadow sticks for 12hr wear and easy application. Our essential eye base is the perfect under-eye colour correcting, conditioning and smoothing product to wear on its own or with a concealer for a flawless finish.

Don’t Forget the Lips

As we age, our lips can become thinner and lose definition. To create the illusion of fuller, more youthful lips, use our precision lip crayon to define the natural lip shape and slightly overdraw the centre part of your lips. Choose our barrier balm to deeply condition and protect the lips, while giving a hydrating finish that won't settle into fine lines. 

Complete Your Look with Blush

Our cream blushes are long-wearing, buildable and can be used on the cheeks, lips and eyes for a touch of colour to give a youthful flushed look. These cream blushes make the perfect gift for Mom!

It’s important to remember that no matter the age, makeup can be a powerful tool for boosting confidence and enhancing your natural beauty. By following these simple tips and tricks and booking with our beauty team, you can help mom feel her best this Mother's Day!
