Hey friends! It is summer and that means sunshine, great weather, and pools!! Unfortunately, while hanging in the pool all day is great for having a good time, it is not great for our hair. Hair that is exposed to the chemicals in pools or all that salt in the ocean can become dry, damaged, and even discoloured. This is known as Swimmer’s Hair.
How it works…
There are a number of chemicals found in pools that cause damage to hair including bromine, chlorine, salt, and copper. When our hair comes into contact with these chemicals they can break down the keratin protein bonds, resulting in visibly damaged hair. Additionally, swimming in the ocean exposes your hair to all that sea salt; salt strips hair of its oils, causing it to dry out and subsequently become damaged. Copper, surprisingly, is one of the most damaging water additives and it is often used to prevent algae and microorganisms from growing in pools!
We are very excited that we are now offering Sugaring & Waxing at Salon Society – but how do they work, and what’s the difference? Let's find out!
Waxing and sugaring differ mainly in the mixtures' ingredients. The sugaring process is also done at room temperature, while waxing tends to be hot, thus the term 'hot wax'.
And that’s all there is to it - the rest comes down to preference!
