Hours of sunshine, salty ocean air, afternoons in the pool – all of these summertime activities can wreak havoc on the heath of your hair. Now that summer is winding down and fall is approaching, give your locks some extra care with our conditioning and cut options here at Salon Antoine!

Combating Dryness

Dryness is the main form of damage that comes from summer activities. Sun, salt, and chlorine all absorb moisture and your hair’s natural oil barrier, leaving it stripped and susceptible to breakage and frizz. If your hair is already dry from bleaching or highlighting, the summer months can be even more difficult. The good news is that our deep conditioning treatment is designed to bring that healthy shine and bounce back to your hair. We’ll start with a quick consolation to determine the best type of products and treatment method, taking into account the current condition and your hair’s natural texture. Our experienced technicians have years of experience and have seen it all when it comes to restoring damaged hair.

Getting Rid of Split Ends

Once your hair has been deep conditioned, a cut may be recommended to revive your hair’s overall shape and appearance. Since the ends of the hair are the oldest sections, they are more prone to dryness, which leads to split ends and breakage. Our stylists can maintain your current style with a short trim and shaping or you can use this opportunity to try out a new look for the fall season. If you need inspiration for a fresh cut or color, our stylists would love to help and you can always check out the latest before and after photos here on our website.

Continuing the Process at Home

There are many great products that you can purchase from our salon to help keep your hair healthy and continue the process at home. Moroccanoil is one of top recommendations for post-summer restoration as they have a professional line of conditioners, shampoos, and masks specifically created for hydration and soothing damaged hair. ColorProof has a Baobab Heal & Repair® line that is another excellent choice. Stop by our salon during our Monday through Saturday hours to learn more about these products and ask any questions you may have about application, benefits, and more.
