On Halloween, you can really stretch the boundaries of style and take a night to explore being someone totally different. Some of us really like to go all out and completely change our look. This may mean more makeup, hairspray, hot tools, products, and colors, not just your awesome costumes. But when the party is over, you probably want your normal face and hair back! The true terror may be waking up November 1st to discover your hair may never be the same again. Take a deep breath. Deseo Salon & BlowDry is here to help with your Halloween hair care after the night is over.
Here are a couple of the most common problems and how we can help you solve them. If you are encountering something different, please reach out to us. Our highly trained stylists are amazing, and if it is possible to fix it, they can do it.
Problem #1: Harsh Hair Dyes
Your temporary hair dye can be more than temporary. This happens often. Depending on the type, color, and condition of your hair, a dye that is supposed to come out in less than ten washes may still be there after a couple weeks. If you have light or color-treated hair, it can even last for months. Sometimes you will respond differently to the same brand and color simply because your hair is in a different condition. The green hair may have been awesome once, but you are ready to get back to your preferred color.
Before you start trying the wild array of DIY suggestions on the Internet and risk doing more damage to your hair, go Deseo Salon & BlowDry for professional styling. You can get all-over color, highlights, corrective coloring, and more.
We have some of the most well educated and talented colorists in the business. Not only will they restore your color, but they will also do it in the healthiest possible way for your hair. If you have not yet dyed your hair, avoid those semi-permanent dyes all together. Instead, try colored hair sprays or better yet, chalk for easier Halloween hair care. Chalk stays in nicely, does the least amount of damage to your hair, and comes out easily.
Problem #2: Heat and Product Damage
The barrage of products has left your hair terribly damaged. Trying to get it just the way you want it for Halloween, you may resort to a combination of techniques you normally never use. This may include hot tools, backcombing, and temporary dyes or colored hair sprays. But even when you’ve washed all the products out, conditioned your tormented hair, and brushed out all the knots, the damage has already been done.
Poor quality products actually break down the outer layer of your hair. Without a doubt, the dry, cold air here in Denver this time of year is not helping either.
There are a variety of things you can try to repair the damage. We have several lines of professional hair care products, and our stylists would be happy to help you determine what is best for your situation. Kevin Murphy’s Leave-in Repair and Kérastase’s Fibre Architecte serum both contain ingredients that will deeply nourish your damaged hair.
It’s also a good idea to book an appointment with us for a gloss treatment either before Halloween or before the winter weather sets in. This is great for repairing significant damage, protecting your hair from future damage, and also giving it a brilliant shine.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
If you have not yet gotten into your Halloween costume, we have a few suggestions to help you avoid a hair nightmare. Start your Halloween hair care early to prevent damage without ruining your fun.
- Wear a wig. This is the easiest way to avoid damaging your hair.
- Use chalk instead of semi-permanent or hairspray dyes.
- Have a gloss treatment or use one of our deep nourishing hair care products before and after Halloween hair.
- Use quality products like Kevin Murphy’s Rough.Rider or Super.Goo to sculpt and mold your hair. Avoid cheap hair gels and rock hard hairsprays.
Looking amazing for Halloween does not have to result in damaged hair. But if you do end up with damage, book an appointment with us. The talented stylists at Deseo Salon & BlowDry can help you fix your color and repair damage. No tricks. Just treats.
