You set an appointment with your trusted salon for your routine hair conditioning treatment. The hairstylist does wonders for your hair. You leave the salon with your hair looking perfect, impeccable, frizz, and split-ends free… that is until the next few days. If you’re one of those people who scour the internet for hours on end to find the best tips on how to make your hair look constantly like you’ve just stepped out of the salon, look no further. We’re here to give you five simple tips on how to achieve just what you’re looking for by doing these easy-to-do hair care routines and hair treatments at home.

5 Tips to Make that Fresh-from-the-Salon Look Last

  1. Wash your hair with products using the same product series your hairdresser uses on you.

Chances are your hair stylist knows all the best hair care and hair treatment products out there. They know which shampoo and conditioner tandem is the best fit for your hair type. Ask your stylist where you can get your hands on the products they used on you. It would be so much easier if they have the products available for purchase in their salon.

  1. Rinse with cold water after your warm shower.

This is something that’s so easy to do and won’t cost you a thing. Simply make sure that before you step out of the shower, you rinse your hair with cold water. Cold water seals the hair cuticle which gives your mane that extra shiny look.

  1. Use heat protector when blow drying your hair.

We all want our hair to maintain its body, and sometimes the way we achieve this is by blow drying our hair. Sadly, frequent blow drying could make our hair extra dry and prone to breakage and split ends. This is why it’s crucial to use a heat protector. Oddly though, this step is often overlooked.

  1. Keep your hair hydrated.

Regardless of your hair type, this is one thing that’s common for all. Hair strands that are hydrated look and feel healthier. To achieve this, use leave-on hair cream to seal in moisture in every hair strand. Simply apply an almond-sized amount of the product on your damp hair and work it evenly in every strand from the mid-section all the way to the ends.

  1. Use only the best hair treatment.

Sometimes we can get a little bit stingy with our spending on hair products and we often go for cheap hair treatment. While there’s nothing wrong with wanting to save on a few bucks by going for cheaper alternatives, but some of these products do more damage to our hair and we end up spending a whole lot more. This is why it’s best to go for hair care products and treatments that have been tested by the best hairdressers and hairstylists around the globe.

At Pink and Gold, we believe we’ve found the best hair product in Olaplex hair treatment series. This product is acclaimed internationally that hair stylists prefer this over other brands. Yoshico-Alexis Ogawa, a New York based professional colorist, was pleased with how better the hair turned out in terms of texture and quality after the first time she tried Olaplex. Even if the hair had been bleached four times, it was as if the strands have never been touched by bleach.

Olaplex has a number of products in its series. Those looking for the best after-salon care might consider the brand’s best home hair conditioner in Olaplex No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner. This product which is free from the harmful substances DEA, Aldehydes and Formaldehyde, is designed to dramatically improve hair strength, protect every strand from within, and provide immediate results.

How does Olaplex No. 5 achieve these? The hair has millions of disulfide bonds that give the hair its structure, strength, and stability. When these bonds are broken, it results in damaged hair. Olaplex is designed to restore the damaged strands by repairing from the inside using our patented ingredient, the Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate. Once this ingredient restores the disulfide bonds, it’s as if your hair has never experienced damage. This product is ideal for any hair type. And with the results this kind intensive conditioning treatment for dry hair provides, you’ll never go back to your old brand.
