My lovely hair color aficionada, expert colorist and owner of Salon Ratay, Sherry Ratay, is going to help you get through the winter, all the while preserving your hair color as much as humanly possible. Take Sherry’s lead, and with very little effort you can ensure your locks stay lustrous, hydrated, shiny, and opulent!
Tip #1: “Moisturize, Moisturize, and Moisturize YOUR HAIR! We take care of our skin throughout the various seasons, so let’s not forget about our hair. I just love the Minardi Pre-Wash for this; just saturate your dry hair and then wrap it in a warm towel, let it sit for a bit, then shampoo it out with Minardi Wash #3, and finish up with Afterwash #3.”
Tip #2: “Cover your beautiful hair with a scarf. Remember that your hair is surrounded by extra dryness with heaters and recycled air, and it can only take so much. Remember to maintain your monthly haircuts, since your ends will be less likely to split with more frequent trims.”
Tip #3: “Let’s talk adjusting the actual hair color: if you’re a blonde, brunette, or redhead, winter is the perfect season to create ribbons of butterscotch, amber, caramel, tangerine, terra cotta, cherry cola, and merlot throughout. Winter is all about creating richness and texture within the hair, so don’t be afraid to add in some extra dimension.”
Tip #4: “Winter weather tends to dry and dull out your hair color, so I recommend a visit to the salon in between your scheduled touch ups and to get a glaze treatment. A glaze will refresh the tone, condition the hair, and create spectacular shine.”
