HYDRATION & REPAIR
The cooler weather has us dreaming of those sunny summer days. What might feel like a distant memory, certainly isn’t for your hair! Extended exposure to the sun and water can have a drying effect, causing hair to feel straw-like and even leading to split ends. Be sure to combat this by updating your seasonal care regime with products that will hydrate and add strength to your hair.
Hydration is the first step to repairing damaged hair, and this starts in the salon. Think of your hairdresser as a hair doctor, they have the knowledge and expertise to prescribe the perfect mix of products to specifically address all your hair needs. Creating a professional care program begins in the basin so kick start your journey and invest in your hair health with an in-salon treatment that focuses on a supercharging moisture and boosting protein, such as adding the Paul Mitchell Clean Beauty Hydrate Shampoo and Hydrate Conditioner to your regime.
