Correcting Covid-19 at Home Haircuts

Do you suffer from what today is commonly called “The Quarantine Cut”…that at home attempts to gain back some semblance of hair normalcy that went so dreadfully wrong? Did you choose the style that pays homage to The Little Dutch Boy or did you decide on something more avant-garde, like the one with chunks missing all over in a willy-nilly fashion? 

You’re not alone and whether you have huge pieces missing from your do or your coif is just a little uneven, the professional hair stylists at New Smyrna Beach Hair Salon can cure your Covid-19 hair conundrum. Plus, freshly cut hair is healthy hair and after all this time locked away like Rapunzel, we all need a little freshening up!

Got regrowth so long it’s alarming? We can touch up your poor, overlooked roots and get you back to glamorous in no time.

Plus, remember that there is no shame. We all went through it, so we’re all the same. Come on in to New Smyrna Beach Hair Salon and get back your game!

Covering Gray Hair with Coloring

Gray, gray, go away and don’t come back another day! We all know that if we don’t cover that stuff with coloring, it’s definitely going to be a guest at our “hair party”.

Natural gray can be beautiful, and silver hair like Jamie Lee Curtis’ is becoming more popular. You have to admit, she certainly wears it well. However, if you are feeling more like Lily Munster with your gray hair, it’s all good. Well, at least New Smyrna Beach Hair Salon can make it good, and there are several ways we can do that with color.

First of all, it’s a good thing to know that gray is more easily covered if your hair is a lighter color. For instance, if your hair is a shade of blonde, when your gray roots come in, they will be harder to notice because they are more similar in color to blonde than the darker colors like browns and reds.

Gray is also easier to cover with highlights. In this case, the lighter strands throughout your hair will camouflage grays as well. Even if your hair is darker brown and your highlights are lighter brown, the variation that the lighter color creates will also help hide those grays.

In some instances, gray can be hard to cover with color and it’s better to procure the help of a knowledgeable professional. No matter what color you prefer, if you have tried to color your hair to cover your grays and have found that your hair is resistant to color (or if you are having any issues at all), the experienced hair colorists at New Smyrna Beach Hair Salon can help. 

Set up an appointment at New Smyrna Beach Hair Salon and one of our highly skilled color specialists will personally work with you to determine which color and/or highlights will work best to cover your grays. After that, your gray will no longer have a say!

The History of Hair Coloring

The history of hair coloring is interesting and entertaining. It all began pretty tamely with the ancient Egyptians and henna in 1500 BC. Then, in the 1st Century BC, the Gauls dyed hair red as a mark of class and rank. In the Dark Ages, redheads were suspected of witchcraft, so it wasn’t until Queen Elizabeth took the throne that it became acceptable. In 300 BC, the Roman noblewoman tinted their hair red, the middle class lightened their hair to blonde and the poorer classes donned black tresses. During the Renaissance, blondes were favored because that color was considered angelic. Later, blonde was only worn by “women of the night” and respectable women used extracts and minerals to darken their hair.

Now, on to how these colors and the fickle folks who viewed them evolved…In the beginning, hair could only be darkened with henna, indigo, sage and chamomile. Then it was discovered that citrus juices, black sulfur, alum and honey mixes could lighten hair. Even so, natural colors were more prevalent until the 19th Century, with the chemical discoveries that colored our world.

In the early 1800s, some men turned to silver nitrate to darken the gray in their mustaches. Then there were some formulations that were less than stellar, including one that turned hair purple with extended use. In 1907, a French chemist developed a synthetic hair coloring formula he called Aureole. Sound familiar? The name morphed into L’Oréal and a few decades later, a New York chemist created hair color than penetrated the hair shaft. That one was the birth of Clairol.

Here’s an abbreviated version of what happened next. Flappers loved hair color in the 1920s and then in the 1930s hair color was only for “loose girls”. Women colored their gray in the 1950s, but rarely admitted to it. Hair color rose in popularity over the next 20 years; and then in the 1970s L’Oréal’s “I’m worth it” ad campaign gave hair color attitudes a one-eighty shift. Today, thankfully, a wide range of hair colors are enjoyed by both women and men.

How to Protect Your Hair from the Sun and Heat in Florida

Many of us have been spending even more time outside because of these unprecedented times and summer is on its way. So, now it is more important than ever to protect our hair from the summer sun and heat. Overexposure to the sun’s harmful rays can dry out your hair, leaving it brittle and lifeless.  A sunburned scalp can even cause a dry scalp, which can lead to root damage. 

So what can we do? The best way to avoid sun damage completely is by wearing some protection – like a hat, cap or bandana, but who can or even wants to do that all the time? A fresh haircut and regular trims can get rid of dry, brittle ends and leave you with a good base, but what happens when you can’t visit your hairdresser? You also want to try to avoid anything with heat – like flat irons or blow dryers, but that can be hard too.

Okay, so what do we really do? There are a few things you can do to help…

It’s never a good idea to shampoo your hair every day, so try to give your hair a break. On the days when you don’t shampoo, just rinse in lukewarm water. You can also try a dry shampoo. When you do shampoo, try to only shampoo the scalp – not the ends. Leave-in conditioner and overnight hair conditioning can work wonders too.

The summer sun can also damage color treated hair, creating more dryness and bleaching hair or causing unwanted brassiness. To remedy this, you want to try to use products specifically made for color treated hair.

Additionally, sea salt and chlorine can damage hair, leaving it limp. Pools can actually strip your hair of protective oils and nutrients. So, it’s best to add a thin layer of coconut oil or conditioner to your hair if you can before you take that dip!
