7 Summer Hair Issues Solved 


7 Summer Hair Issues Solved

As we move into the summer months, heat and humidity can create serious problems for our hair and leave it looking and feeling much less than perfect. Read our new blog on our top picks for the products that can solve your summer hair issues and prevent any hair nightmares this new season. 

Frizzy hair 

Frizz is undoubtedly one of the biggest hair issues when summer rolls around, with the summer heat and humidity being known to cause havoc. To combat this, we recommend the Insight Anti Frizz Hydrating Mask which will reduce frizz by intensely moisturising your hair’s fibres, leaving your hair looking and feeling silky and smooth. Enriched with mineral oils, the hydrating mask will nourish and repair hair from the roots to the ends, creating stronger and healthier hair. 

Split ends and breakage 

Although breakage and split ends can occur all year round, the summer months undoubtedly put extra stress on hair and leave it more vulnerable to damage. Our top pick is the Schwarzkopf Bonacure Peptide Repair Rescue Deep Nourishing Treatment 200ml, which will condition and moisturise your hair, repairing its inner structure and surface to fight breakage and split ends, leaving you with only smooth and healthy hair this summer.  

Greasy hair 

The heightened humidity and heat associated with the summer months can leave your hair feeling dirty and greasy. To help avoid this summer hair issue we recommend the Hairdo Dry Shampoo which is expertly formulated to give you a fresher and cleaner hair and scalp, whilst instantly removing grease. This dry shampoo provides immediate freshness and volume, without leaving any residue or greyness, giving you one less thing to worry about this summer. 

Dry hair 

Dry hair is another of the most common hair issues as summer comes around, as the sun becomes more intense we often see our hair dry out and become brittle and damaged. Use the Total Results Moisture Me Rich Shampoo to replenish and cleanse each layer of your hair leaving it soft and radiant. The nourishing shampoo is rich in apricot oil extracts and will help replenish dry hair and add intense moisture creating smooth, luscious, and silky hair. 

Faded hair colour 

With the combination of salt from the sea, chlorine from the pool, and the increase in hot sun exposure, it is no secret that hair colour fades quicker in summer. To help protect your hair from losing its colour we recommend the Insight Coloured Hair Protective Shampoo, as it will not only brighten but also enhance your hair colour whilst leaving your hair looking and feeling revitalised. The shampoo’s formula of rich extracts and natural oils will preserve the intensity of the colour and help prevent it from fading. 

Sweaty hair 

As the temperatures finally begin to rise and the hotter months take over, sweaty hair can become a serious issue. To help combat this, we recommend the Schwarzkopf Osis+ Dry Shampoo Refresh Dust which will give your hair enhanced body and volume, all whilst getting rid of that sweaty look that can sometimes get the best of us in the hotter months. The super lightweight formula freshens and rejuvenates the hair, giving your hair a whole new look. 

Sun damage 

Harmful rays can cause significant sun damage to your hair, leaving it weaker and less healthy. The Amargan Nourishing Cleanser is our recommendation to ensure that your hair is protected in these summer months. This cleanser will expertly condition, detoxify and strengthen hair, reversing any sun damage, whilst the formulation of nutrients, argan oil, and keratin will simultaneously rescue and repair your hair leaving it shinier and more resilient.  

Feel like you’re ready to take on this Summer head-on now? We know you’re ready!

We recommend the Biolage Deep Treatment & Detangle Duos which help to restore moisture and can bring your damaged hair back to life. Choose from either Recover, Fiberstrong, or Hydrasource  to get your tresses back to tip top condition. 

Use Protective Styling Tools 

We all know that the overuse of heating tools like tongs, blow dryers, and straighteners can damage your hair, but you don’t have to ditch the dryer in pursuit of a healthier hair. The Babyliss Keratin Lustre Dryer is designed to protect your hair from the damaging effects of dryer heat – the key being its keratin-infused ceramic, which fills in the gaps in each hair shaft, making your hair smoother, sleeker, and easier to style.

The Best Products to Help Style Shorter Hair 


The Best Products to Help Style Shorter Hair 

The common misconception is that shorter hair is low maintenance and whilst that may be true to some extent, you shouldn’t go abandoning your barnet and cleaning out your beauty cabinets just yet if you’ve decided to get ‘the chop’. Although cutting your hair can make if feel healthier and thicker, it still needs TLC, even more so as the length between root and tip is greatly reduced, making split ends a big concern with many find that their hair seemingly ‘stops’ growing. But don’t worry, you can still make that drastic cut and keep your hair in tip-top condition even when it’s short. In our latest blog, we breakdown the best products to help style shorter hair. 

Get to Know Your Hair Type 

We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again. It’s so important that you get a product that suited to your hair type. Drug store shampoo and conditioners are a one size fits all – but that’s not you! Whether you have straight, curly, wavy, or kinky hair – there’s a product out there made to give your hair nourishment and strengthening it deserves. Our favourite pick is the Insight range of shampoos and conditioners as they have a product for everything, from the Insight Dry Hair- Nourishing Shampoo for those with dry frizzy hair, to the Insight Sensitive- Sensitive Skin Shampoo – they’ve got you covered!  

Don’t Over Wash Your Hair 

It doesn’t matter if you have long or short hair, over washing your hair can more often than not do more harm than good. However, this is especially true for short hair as you can seriously dry out your scalp and the tips of your hair causing it to become dry, brittle, and damaged. The best way to avoid this is to wash your hair every other day or if you can, every few days. Worried about greasy roots? Don’t worry, we’ve got you. Total Results High Amplify Dry Shampoo not only helps to absorb oil, it refreshes your hair and gives it volume, perfect for those days when you just need to get going!  

Short Hair, Do Care! 

It can be really easy to just let your hair air dry, however, research has shown that brushing your hair stimulates the small blood vessels called capillaries in your scalp, increasing blood circulation and the transport of oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles. This could encourage hair growth, even strengthening the roots as the sebaceous glands in the scalp produce sebum, so by brushing your hair, the oil moves from root to tip creating a natural protective oil and conditioner. But be warned, not all hairbrushes are created equal. The Tangle Teezers range is not only made for keeping your hair tangle-free, but it offers a range of brushes for different hair types all designed to leave your hair soft and knot-free. The unique and ergonomic shape of the Tangle Teezer means it fits in your hand perfectly and glides through the hair without pulling, yanking or snagging. 

Heat Protect Your Hair 

Just because you’ve shorter hair, doesn’t mean you don’t have to protect it from the effects of heat. In fact, adding a heat protectant before blow drying, straightening, or curling short hair can help reduce the risk of breakage and split ends. We recommend the  Leyton House Heat Protect Spray – this little beauty has a formula that not only keeps unwanted frizz at bay, but it prevents breakage and is perfect for any hair type.  

Invest in the Best Styling Tools 

Another thing you can invest in are the salon quality styling tools. The Babyliss Keratin Lustre Dryer is designed to protect your hair from the damaging effects of dryer heat with its specially designed keratin-infused ceramic, which fills in the gaps in each hair shaft, making your hair smoother, sleeker, and easier to style. Or if you’re in pursuit of the perfect beachy waves, the Babyliss Tongs are one of the most raved about styling tools and are perfect for creating soft lustrous curls. With a built-in ceramic barrel and heat ready indicator system, you can create waves that are smooth and shiny every time. 

Pamper Hair with a Nourishing Mask 

Having short hair may take a lot of the hassle out of getting ready in the morning, but there’s nothing wrong with giving your hair a pamper once in a while to help prevent or stop damage. From colouring/bleaching hair, to using styling tools – your hair goes through it. One of the best ways to revitalise your hair is to invest some time into a hair mask once or every other week. Our top picks are the Biolage Deep Treatment & Detangle Duos which help to restore moisture and bring damaged hair back to life. There’s a pack for every situation, choose from either Recover, Fiberstrong, Hydrasource  or Smoothproof to keep your hair strong and healthy.

Boost Your Hair Health in Time for World Health Day


Boost Your Hair Health in Time for World Health Day

Almost all of us battle with hair damage, breakage, and frizz – from overusing heat styling tools, the harsh chemicals from hair dye, or even just everyday life like the cold, heat, humidity and pollution. World Health Day (April 7th) is not only an important occasion to focus on the health of your body but your hair as well. In fact, there’s no better time to start sharpening up on your hair care routine and get the healthiest hair of your life with Salon Trusted. Keep reading as we break down our top tips for happy, healthy hair so you’re glowing inside and out in time for World Health Day.

Turn Down the Heat!

We’ve all been there. Running out of time to get ready and you run for the hair straighteners for your quick hair fix. But if a shiny mane is what you’re after, remembering to add a good heat protectant can be a life saver! The  Leyton House Heat Protect Spray is not only a saviour when protecting your hair before heat styling, but its breakthrough formula keeps unwanted frizz at bay, prevents hair fall and breakage, and is a wonder for all hair types.

Want to avoid the heat all together? You can even opt for a heat-free hairstyle using Invisibobble’s Hair Halo – a comfortable, durable headband that won’t crease your hair and is not only a perfect pop of colour but helps to keep hair kink-free, prevents breakage whilst your hair dries naturally.

Know Your Hair Type

Don’t just settle for the first shampoo you see. Whether its straight, curly, wavy or kinky –  there are products out there made for your particular hair type which can help give your hair the love and attention it deserves. The Insight range of shampoos have a product for everything, from the Insight Dry Hair- Nourishing Shampoo for those with dry frizzy hair, to the Insight Sensitive- Sensitive Skin Shampoo – you’re sure to find one for your hair needs!

Rethink the Way You Wash Your Hair

We all like to have clean, healthy hair but sometimes over washing can do more harm than good. Shampooing everyday can seriously dry out your scalp and cause hair damage. The best way to keep your hair clean is to wash your hair every few days and if you still need a refresh use dry shampoo to absorb extra oils and not weight down the hair with excessive washing. Our favourite for a fresh fix is Total Results High Amplify Dry Shampoo which helps to absorb oil, refresh hair and give your hair volume.

Say Hello to Hair Masks

Sometimes damage is inevitable no matter how hard you try to prevent it, but not to worry.

Hair Masks are number one when it comes to battling damage and promoting healthy hair. A moisturising hair mask can not only help to condition and help with shine, but it can reverse some of the damage done to the ends of your hair where the first signs of damage shows (you know, those dreaded split ends!). Our personal favourite for damage repair are the Biolage Deep Treatment & Detangle Duos which helps to restore moisture and bring damaged hair back to its healthy state. Choose from either Recover, Fiberstrong, or Hydrasource  to get your tresses back to tip top condition.

Detangle, Don’t Rip!

Whenever you are brushing your hair be careful to not put strain on your hair strands and rip the hair from the scalp. Start in small sections, working from the ends of the hair to detangle and reduce breakage. The Tangle Teezers range are made for keeping your locks tangle free. They offer a range of brushes for different hair types all aimed at leaving your hair soft and knot free without the snagging which makes detangling easy and less painful. The unique and ergonomic shape of the Tangle Teezer fits in your hand perfectly to help glide through the hair with no pulling or yanking – leaving your hair smooth and damage free.

Incorporate some of these top tips into your daily hair care routine and say goodbye to dry frizzy hair and hello to softer and sleeker locks! For more information or more handy hips, get in touch with our friendly team today.

Our Guide to the Clean Beauty Movement


Our Guide to the Clean Beauty Movement

Clean beauty is a growing trend in the beauty industry that is predicted to be a major movement through 2022. However, the overall term is still somewhat murky because there is no industry standard for the category and so, there is room for interpretation. Here at Salon Trusted, we understand the main trait of clean beauty is that it is toxin-free; meaning there are no ingredients included that have been linked to harmful health effects.

With a growing interest in beauty that is natural and obtained from organic sources, more and more brands are producing beauty products which are cleaner for the skin, body and environment. Keep an eye out for labels that say ‘paraben, sulphate, and silicone’ free, as these are considered the three biggest toxins in beauty products today.


If you want to free yourself from toxins and chemical nasties, and introduce more eco-friendly beauty products into your life, take a look at our top 5 clean beauty products listed below.

Biolage Keratindose Trio Pack

Many shampoos and conditioners contain sulphates that over-cleanse and dry out your scalp. By sticking to sulfate-free formulas, this will help to keep greasiness to a minimum and will cleanse your strands without stripping your scalp or hair of the oils that are needed for strong, healthy locks. All of the Biolage, by Matrix, shampoo and conditioners are sulfate-free to lock in hydration and moisture whilst leaving a refreshed and smooth finish. Our favourite? The Biolage Keratindose Pack, created with pro-keratin and silk to provide targeted reinforcement and moisture balance to over-processed hair. Regular use of the shampoo, conditioner and deep treatment will help to restore moisture and leave your hair up to 90% more nourished! Each of the 3 products in this value pack are sulphate free, p and silicone-free so be sure to snap this bundle up before it sells out!

The experts at Colour Wow have created this anti-frizz cream to repair, nourish, protect, hydrate and style your hair. It really is a one-stop-shop! This cream can be used on dry hair, for any and all hair types, by simply applying a small amount through the ends, to leave your hair soft and silky without it feeling weighed down. Once applied, this sulphate and paraben free cream will continue to fight the frizz all day long.
