Feel that hair of yours.  Does it feel different now than it did before the summer started?  Think back to everything you experienced over the past three months and now remember that your hair went through it just like you did!  I’m sure you put on sunscreen when you relaxed at the pool or lathered on some lotion when your legs were feeling a bit dry… but did you take care of your hair the same way? 

It’s funny how our hair tends to get forgotten when it comes to us taking care of ourselves.  The sun, wind, chlorine, salt water and sweat can all negatively impact the healthiness of our hair.  Thankfully, there are a number of ways we can get our hair back to healthy both in the salon and at home.  

In the salon:

Most salons, including Garbo’s, carry deep conditioning treatments that the stylist can apply while you’re at the shampoo bowl.  These treatments are different than take-home products as they penetrate deeper into the hair follicle and are for professional use only.  Two of our favorite treatments come from Aveda – one to help pump moisture into very dry hair (Moisture Treatment) and one to improve the look and feel of damaged hair (Repair Treatment).  Depending on what your hair needs, your stylist may recommend one over the other or a combination of the two.  These treatments do come at an extra cost ($40, or $20 if adding on to another service) but they are worth it as you can’t get the same treatment at home.

At home:

While an in-salon treatment is highly recommended when your hair needs some serious love, it is not the only option.  Garbo’s carries many high quality products that can help get your hair back to healthy!  These deep conditioning masks will leave your hair feeling smoother and looking much less tattered and dry after just one use.  While these products can be used separately we recommend pairing them with a deep conditioning treatment for maximum repair.  Our favorites: Aveda Damage Remedy, Aveda Dry Remedy, Garbo’s Indulge Masque and  Aquage Seaextend Silkening Oil Power Infusion.
