Now that Spring is officially in the air, it’s time to start getting summer-ready! That means lighter, brighter locks that are healthy and hydrated. At The Dollhouse Beauty Salon in Alexandria, KY, we’ll help you say goodbye to the dull, dry look you rocked all winter and hello to a sumptuous summer look you’ll love.

Add Dimension to Your Dark Hair

Brightening dark hair is a process that takes time to do correctly. If you want light, beautiful hair this summer, now is the time to start. Depending on how dark your hair is and your desired look, it can take multiple sessions to achieve the right shade.

Whether you want to lighten all over or you’re looking for a bright balayage, it’s important to make sure your hair is healthy throughout each treatment. We use products that hydrate, protect, and repair your hair to ensure it looks its best weeks after your service.

Go Light While Staying Hydrated

Part of keeping your hair healthy while going brighter is to keep it hydrated. The Olaplex line offers a variety of benefits for hair of any texture. From thick, curly locks to baby-fine strands, these products are designed to keep your hair healthier for longer. The Dollhouse Beauty Salon offers the following Olaplex options to keep your hair healthier, longer:

  • Olaplex No. 6: This leave-in cream strengthens, hydrates, protects, and eliminates frizz for long-lasting protection. It also prevents fly-aways for up to 72 hours and leaves your hair smooth and sleek without weighing it down.
  • Olaplex No. 7: Designed to repair damaged and compromised hair, this bonding oil protects color vibrancy and offers heat protection up to 450 degrees. It offers unbeatable hydration for all hair types while increasing shine and softness, plus it repairs and strengthens hair from root to tip.
  • Olaplex No. 8: A deep conditioning hair mask that is great for thick or unruly hair, Olaplex No. 8 is a bond-building mask that provides intense moisture, body and shine to damaged hair.

Healthy, Heatless Ways to Get Fabulous Curls

Aside from keeping your hair hydrated, it’s also important to prevent damage. Minimizing or eliminating exposure to heat is a great way to achieve this, but it’s hard to achieve a great look without heat right? WRONG! There are some amazing techniques you can use at home to get beautiful waves and curls without using a hair dryer, curling iron, or heated curlers.

Some of our favorite heatless curling methods include:

Heatless Curlers: There are a variety of options here, so you’ll need to do your research to find out which one is best for your hair type. Once you find the perfect option, the rest is easy. Your hair needs to be 90% dry before you apply the curlers and we find that it’s best to put them in right before bed.

Curling your hair without heat takes time, and eight hours of uninterrupted sleep offers the perfect opportunity to achieve the desired look without sitting around and wasting a full day.

The Tik-Tok Robe Method: This trend has gone viral on social media and for good reason: it works! Simply put, you start by draping the belt from your bathrobe over your head so that the ends hang on either side of your head. From here you plait, or braid, your hair around the robe and secure the ends with a silk scrunchie to prevent ridges. Then, simply go to sleep and you’ll wake up with gorgeous swishy curls!

Curl Cream and Diffuser: Use a high-quality curl cream on soaking wet hair and make sure you work it in well. Let your hair dry a bit (from soaking wet to damp) and then attach your diffuser to your blow dryer. Set the dryer to medium cool (NO HEAT) Use your diffuser as normal, but be careful not to over-dry or you’ll create frizz.
