We recently received a newsletter from Simply Organic Beauty highlighting some amazing Summer Hair Care Tips that we want to share with you! So let's begin...

"It's that time of year again! While we love spending endless days lounging by the pool or at the beach, we all know how heat and humidity can be detrimental to our hair.

The sun's overpowering rays can easily dry up our hair, causing uncontrollable frizz and breakage. To avoid the damage, get into the habit of "summer proofing" your hair.

Tip #1: Avoid swimmer's hair damage.

The salt content in seawater draws water out of the hair and skin, while chlorine strips the hair of its natural protective oils. Prep your hair with Oway Sunway Sun Protective Elixir to protect against chlorine and salt water damage.

Tip #2: Protect your color.

Wondering why your hair color fades so fast? Frequent sun exposure is probably to blame! Make sure your hair color lasts longer by wearing a hat or scarf for sun protection and using a protective spray like Oway Color Protection Veil. Made with Amino Acids, Sodium PCA, Arginine and African Fire Tulip Tree, this spray helps retain color pigments and vibrance in the hair.

Tip #3: Resist the heat.

Give your hair a break and embrace your natural locks. If you ever decide to use heat, be sure to spray some heat protection, like Oway Thermal Stress Protector.

Tip #4: Get a trim.

Split ends are at an all time high during the summer due to overexposure to the sun, wind, and heat. To get rid of split ends, trim the ends regularly so the hair remains fresh and healthy.

Tip #5: Eliminate mean green pool hair.

If you're a frequent swimmer or have very blonde hair, we suggest going even further with your summer hair care.

Invest in a non-toxic purple shampoo. Try a purple shampoo like O&M Conquer Blonde, this is a professional-grade product that will cleanse the hair of impurities and eliminate brassy tones and green hair.

Tip #6: Keep your hair hydrated.

Cleanse, protect, and moisturize your hair with deep conditioning masks and treatments. O&M Hydrate and Conquer Conditioner is a perfect daily conditioner to give the hair a shot of moisture."

At Green + Anchor Salon you can find your "summer proofing" products!

We have a product line specifically for summer months called, Sunway by Oway. We talked about each products benefits and how they can help shield your hair from damage during your outdoor activities in our last blog post - go read it HERE!

We hope you can take some of these tips and incorporate them into your routine, like we have!

We wish you a fun, safe, and warm summer with GREAT hair!

We keep pinching ourselves, how is it already June!? Summer is around the corner, which means the sun will be touching our skin, soul, and HAIR. We love nothing more than soaking up that natural Vitamin D, spending time in the pool, ocean, outside bbq'ing, road tripping, hiking... and the list goes on!

We're so excited to bring out our OWAY Sunway line, and know that our hair, which we spend so much time and $$$ on to maintain, will be safe and protected - just as we are cautious about protecting our skin. We can go out and have all the fun in the sun and not stress about our investment!

The OWAY Sunway line consists of an After-Sun Hair and Body Bath, an After-Sun Hair Mask, a Sun Protective Elixir, and an awesome After-Sun Body Balm. This lineup of organic summer skin and hair essentials are made with Biodynamic-Organic Avocado Oil, Green Anise and Grapestone Oil.

As we approach some of the hottest months of the year, these products will be at arms reach, no doubt!

"I got the worst sunburn last summer, the kind that's painful to lay down and you feel like you can only stand up straight and not touch anything... yeah that bad, and immediately after I put the After-Sun Body Balm everywhere, I kid you not, the next day my sunburn was probably 90% healed and my skin no longer felt dry and cracky. It will be with me through all this summer's activities because, lesson learned, and it smells so fresh." - Kinsey

Sunway provides the hair and body with nutrients and antioxidants needed during the summer to fight against oxidative stress, structural damage, and dehydration. All products are accompanied by the fresh and fragrant aromatherapy of essential oils: Biodynamic Fennel, Biodynamic Lemon, Mandarin Orange, Sweet Orange And Bergamot, which make for an energizing and balancing experience.
