5 Ways To A Smooth Frizz Free Summer

With summer right around the corner, that means that humidity is days away from showing its ugly face!  I know that we are all excited for warmer weather, but not quite ready to begin the endless battle with frizz.  So today I am going to give you 5 sure-fire ways to a smoother summer.

The first frizz fighter that I am going to talk about is something that I personally could not live without, and that is the Keratin Treatment.  I am sure that some of you have heard of this, but maybe aren’t exactly sure how it works.  A Keratin Treatment is a smoothing treatment.  Not to be confused with a relaxer or straightening treatments, which actually change the texture of your hair permanently.  A keratin treatment is designed to reduce frizz and soften curl.  It is made up of protein so it actually is making the hair stronger.  So if you are someone who has curly or frizzy hair that spends a ton of time, energy, and heat trying to make your hair look smooth, just to go outside and have it frizz right back up, this treatment is calling your name!  The keratin will take away all frizz and will cut the drying time by at least half!  The best part about this treatment is you are not married to it.  By that I mean it gradually washes out of hair.  So you are not left with hair that is two different textures as it grows in.  This treatment lasts about four months, just long enough to get you through the humid summer.  After about four months your hair will return completely back to its natural state, except it will be stronger and healthier.  This treatment starts at 300$ based on the length of your hair.  So if you break it down, that’s 75$ a month or roughly 19$ a week.  Trust me when I say that it is well worth the investment!

Now the second frizz fighter that I am going to talk about is also a type of keratin, but look at it as the Keratin Treatment’s little sister.  This is the Keratin Express Blowout.  It is a lighter version of the full keratin.  This treatment is designed more to reduce frizz and not so much curl.  This treatment is more suited for someone who doesn’t have super curly hair, someone who just wants to remove frizz and make their hair less “puffy”.  This treatment lasts about six weeks, and costs 100$.  Just like its big sister, the Keratin Express is a protein so it will help strengthen your hair, while also adding crazy shine!

The  third frizz fighter I am going to suggest is a gloss.  This treatment is great for everyone!  It is a quick way yo put that youthful shine back into your hair.  A gloss will help smooth the cuticle (the outer most layer of hair) leaving the hair softer and more conditioned.  A gloss is great to have done in between color services to help give the color a little boost, helping your hair look and feel great until your next visit!  When my hair is feeling dull and dry, I like to have a gloss done.  It makes my hair easier to style and eliminates a ton of frizz!  This is a quick 30$ service that can have you in and out of the salon in a half hour.  You can leave with is wet, or schedule a blowout for an additional fee.  With the right at home care, you should be able to get four weeks out of your gloss!

Ok, the fourth frizz fighter is something that you can have done in the salon and maintain at home.  I’m talking about conditioning treatments.  One of the biggest culprits of frizzy hair is lack of moisture.  You can have treatments done in the salon for around 30$.  A great way to maintain the moisture at home is by doing a mask on your hair once a week.  You would use the mask in place of your conditioner and leave it on for about tem minutes before rinsing it out.  The longer you leave it in, the better.  The healthier and more hydrated your hair is, the better the chances are of it staying smooth.  Our salon carries a great selection of masks, so stop in any time and one of our stylist would happily help choose the right mask for your hair!

Lastly I am going to talk about products.  If you are not using anything in your hair before styling, it is time to start.  You always want to use some type of product before blowing your hair out.  There needs to be some sort of protection from the heat, even if it’s just a leave-in conditioner.  Since every head of hair is different, the product selection will be different for everyone.  Riah offers such a wide variety of products.  So if you are in the area, please stop in and allow one of our professionals to consult with you about what products would best suit you!  The right styling products can make all of the difference when it comes to frizz control!!

Hopefully with these tips, you are able to have a smooth, frizz-free summer!

Happy Styling,

Jennifer Payne


About RIAH Hair Studio

How We Came to Be . . . RIAH Hair Studio In May 2011, the former Salon Rage of Southampton, Pennsylvania relocated to a new space and changed their name to RIAH Hair Studio. RIAH? (pronounced 'Rye-Ah') Yes, it's "hair" spelled in reverse. Donna originally established Salon RAGE in March 1999. The salon delivered comprehensive hair services to the surrounding communities. As a seasoned beauty industry professional for over 29 years, Donna believed in education, not only for her stylists, but for her clients as well. This prompted her to open this first salon where she could foster such a dynamic environment. After 10+ years in Southampton and a desire to move closer to her family, in 2011 she relocated her business to Furlong, Pennsylvania in the heart of Bucks County. Re-emerging as RIAH Hair Studio, Donna has created a modern, contemporary, urban loft design experience located on the corner of York Rd & Edison-Furlong Roads, at the Village Corner in Buckingham Township. RIAH Hair Studio is an intimate boutique salon that is relaxing, comfortable & social, providing the "Right Attitude" from the team resulting in a "Great Experience" for their clients. It's the "RAGE" she carefully develops to this day. The stylists are continually certified in the latest hair techniques (color, cut, design, styles, tools, products, and fashion trends). Their clients, female, male, young or mature, enjoy the benefits of this extensive training. Additionally, they are taught how to re-create and maintain their RIAH experience until the next appointment. It makes RIAH Hair Studio stand out as one of the most referred-to salons in Bucks County! When we have the opportunity to see you in our new space, we'll provide you with the "Right Attitude & Great Experience" as we have always strived to do. Happy Day! from Donna & the Team at RIAH Hair Studio View all posts by RIAH Hair Studio
