Beat the Heat with the Power of Moisturizing

Dry air and heat got you down? If you’re vacationing in the Bahamas (or somewhere else luxuriously warm) maybe not so much. If you’re still in New England your hair and skin probably aren’t too keen on the dry air from the heat that’s blowing around inside to keep us warm, or the cold weather we face every time we’re outside. To prevent that dry, cracking, itchy feeling your hair and skin need moisturizing. Not to worry. We’ve got you covered here at trUe Salon and Color Café, literally. First you’ll want a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. The trUe team loves SOMA. We recommend your shampoos have at least a 4.5 pH range. SOMA’s Moisture shampoo hits the sweet spot with a pH balance between 4.5 and 5.5. This means it actually soaks up enough moisture to really quench your hair. This sulfate-free shampoo is made with a hydrolyzed wheat protein that penetrates hair cuticles so it nourishes hair and preserves color too, making it great for all hair types. With the lack of humidity you might find yourself styling your hair more too, which can also mean more heat and styling products. If that’s the case, you’ll want a heat protectant product like Moroccanoil® Heat Styling Protection for thick hair or Aquage’s Beyond Body Sealing Spray for finer hair. Moroccanoil’s vitamin-infused heat protectant creates a thermal protective shield. It nourishes hair and prevents breakage and split ends all while providing a soft hold and glossy finish. Meanwhile Aquage’s fortifying proteins shields your hair’s outer layer and protects cuticles from excessive moisture loss, all to prevent frizz and flyaways. Just spray Beyond Body Sealing Spray in quick, short bursts toward your ends about 8 to 10 inches away from your hair. Then press and run your fingers down the section you sprayed so the product is evenly distributed from roots to ends. Our trUe team uses these products and loves them just as much, so be sure to ask your stylist about the best way to use them so you can achieve the look that makes you feel your best!
