‘Tis the season of giving and taking (free hair treatments)

 

Kennaland cares, about your hairs.

So this holiday season we are giving the gift of a free treatment with every cut or

color appointment.  

We all know the holiday season can take its toll on our body and our hair.  So we

have asked our team of stylists what can be done to keep our hair in tip top

condition despite the weather, excessive dryness and continual styling

throughout the holiday season.  We also know that what you put into your body

counts as much as what you put on it – so we’ve included a few top tips from our

friend– nutritionist Mia @therasalife on how to keep our hair and skin looking its

its’ best despite the odd day (month) of over indulgence. 

 

For all things hair Colorists Jehnna and Galloway suggest:

 

Don’t Overwash.  This applies to all seasons but is the most damaging in winter.

Try to shampoo every other day at most, twice a week is even better.  Fill in with a

dry shampoo – like EVO’s water killer.

 

Follow you mother’s advice don’t go outside with wet hair – for the sake of your

hair not just your health.  Your hair can literally form little icicles as the water

expands and freezes – causing breakage.

 

Avoid products with alcohol which will cause further dryness.  Keep an eye out

for:  Denat, Ethanol, SD alcohol 40, Propanol, Isopropyl and Propyl.

 

Instead try oils and serums like Iles Formula finishing serum and May11 hair oil. 

Also curly hair products are designed to hydrate and moisturize so even if you

have fine straight hair if it’s feeling dry and brittle in the winter a curly hair

product may be worth a go- try EVO’s Liquid Rollers.

 

When it comes to winter wear – the softer the better for your hair.  Cashmere is

best for warmth and the tight silky knot causes the least damage. Further protect

the hair from damage and static before wearing hats and scarves by applying a

leave in conditioner or serum.

 

And for a more holistic approach to our whole health and our hair we

spoke to our friend Mia from The Rasa Life:

 

Don’t stress. Stress hormones slow digestion, make your skin more sensitive and

can lead to hair loss (ah!). If you overdo it on the egg nog one night, just move on!

And don’t write off healthy routines until January. One night of indulgence

doesn’t have to mean a month of pie for breakfast.

 

Sleep! The glow cannot be faked. Try to get a solid 7-8 hours a night, and if that’s

not possible, nap when you can. A 20 minute snooze is equivalent to an extra

hour of sleep in the evening. 

 

Eat good fats from wild fish, walnuts, chia seeds, almonds, avocados, brazil nuts,

olive oil and coconut oil. Healthy fats are nutrients for you hair and skin. Think

glossy, not greasy.

 

Mia is also offering all Kennaland customers free consultations through January

31st. Contact the studio to book in.

 

Last but not least Indulge and protect your hair from the winter weather and

excessive styling season with a choice of treatment that will help soften,

strengthen and nourish your hair when it needs it most. All appointments

booked before December 25th will include a free treatment.

Kennaland Tips: Keep your blonde going

 

KEEP YOUR BLONDE BANGING.

 

Summer is coming.  We promise. 

Now more than ever keeping your

blonde fresh can be a challenge. 

Here are few tips from our color

team, Laura,Galloway & Jenna,

to help keep your tresses top notch

& not hiding in a top knot. 

 


Blonde hair doesn’t actually fade,

unlike other colors -the risk is more

about picking up unwanted tones. 

 

Get your Kennaland stylist to mix you

up a personalized EVO Fabuloso Pro Treatment. 

Customized to your color,  this color

refresh & maintenance system will keep

your hair looking bright & fresh in

between appointments. Try to wash your hair

less frequently, good for your hair

& the environment. Our team at Kennaland

suggests every 3-4 days. If that feels too long

top up with a dry shampoo in between. 

We love EVO's - Water Killer Dry Shampoo.
 

 

Blonde hair is like a sponge; when dry, it soaks up

everything including salt, chlorine & other chemicals.

 

To avoid the green tinge caused by chlorine,

wet your hair in fresh water before getting into

the pool or sea to limit absorption.

 


Like your dermatologist, we recommend staying

out the sun or using a UV protective spray when in it.

The sun can lift all your hair to the same tone,

resulting in a flat look and dried out strands. 

EVO’s Happy Campers Leave in Moisture 

is perfect for protection from both UV & heat.

Old buildings, especially in NYC, often have

a lot of copper in the water.  This builds up & can

cause brassy blondes.  Invest in a shower filter

to keep copper & other minerals from building

up brass and other tones.  Regular touch-ups

will keep your blonde at its best without having

to book an overhaul every visit.

 

For double processes we recommend

every 5-7 weeks.

 

For highlights every 6-12 weeks. 

 

If that's hard to achieve talk to your stylist

about creating a look with a more subtle grow out.  

And perhaps pop in for a gloss in

between services, this could add 3- 5 weeks

to your blonde & help keep lived in styles

looking fresh & not faded.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about

your service or hair in general feel

free to give us a shout – we are here to help

hair. appointmentsbk@kennaland.com
