Hot Curl Summer – Curly Hair in the Heat


Since summer is here, you may be heading out to the sun, sea, and sand. But if you have curly hair, the heat and humidity will pose a few challenges, you’ll likely have been facing the same hair issues all these years!

At Salon Trusted, we understand that curly hair differs from every other type of hair. If you have been blessed with curly hair, you already know that your hair is more porous, and it absorbs and loses moisture faster than other types. What does that do? Instead of giving you the ideal bouncy ringlets of your dreams, you end up with a frizzy untameable lion’s mane. 

Don’t worry, read this blog where we share numerous tips on how to protect your hair against the summer heat, how to keep your hair curly and bouncy, and what curly haircare products to use. 

Understanding Curly Hair and How It’s Different 

First of all, we need to understand how curly hair is different from every other type. We know you already know how it appears different, but we mean to make you understand why it ‘behaves’ differently. Curly hair strands grow in spirals with a comparatively higher number of twists and bends than straight hair. Since the natural oils from your scalp find it harder to travel from the roots down to the tip of each strand, your curly hair becomes prone to dryness and frizz. Additionally, there are so many subtypes within the curly hair type, since each curl can develop its personality and needs, just like you – unique down to the core! All this can make your curly hair slightly more high maintenance than the rest of the hair types. 

7 Tips to Protect Your Curls Against the Summer 

Here are some easy-to-remember tips that will help you protect your beautiful curly hair against the summer heat: 

  1. Hydrate your hair

Always keep yourself properly hydrated. Drinks loads of water. The more you drink, the more your curls will stay hydrated. Water is an essential ingredient in keeping your moisture levels in check and avoiding frizz easily.

  1. Don’t overwash your curly hair 

If you wash your hair too often, it removes all the essential natural oils that keep your hair moisturised and healthy. Washing your hair once or twice a week is a good practice. Matrix A Curl Can Dream Shampoo and Conditioner Litre Duo

  1. Use a heat protectant 

It is always advisable to use a heat protectant before you use any kind of heat-styling tool. It will keep your curls protected from the damaging effects of high temperatures.

  1. Always use UV hair protection products 

Just like how your skin needs UV protection from harmful sun rays, your hair needs it too. Use UV hair protection products that will keep your curls safe.

  1. Avoid chlorine-rich swimming pools 

We all enjoy a dip in the pool to cool down during the summer. But remember that chlorine is the enemy of curly hair and it can break and dry up your hair. Before dipping into the pool, use a leave-in conditioner to create a barrier. Once you are out of the pool, thoroughly rinse, and then condition your curly hair. 

  1. Regularly deep condition your hair 

The summer sun can easily dry up your curls. Deep conditioning your curly hair regularly with mask found on Salon Trusted.

  1. Don’t over-style your curly hair 

Embrace your natural curls during the summertime. Don’t over-style your hair as it may deprive your curly hair of the moisture and oils it needs. Don’t weigh down your hair with too many products.

5 Summer Hair Care Products for Your Curly Hair

Here is a list of 5 easy and quick tips for curly hair care during the summer: 

  1. Refresh your curls with a spritz

Try using a curl-refreshing spray to rejuvenate your curls between washes. It will help you redefine your curls and reduce the amount of frizz for the entire day. 

  1. Use scrunchies instead of tight hair ties 

Do not use tight hair ties. Instead, try using soft scrunchies or spiral hair ties as these will have a limiting effect on your curls. Tighter hair ties can easily damage your hair and affect your curling pattern. You can browse the accessories sections on Salon Trusted to find the right scrunchies and spiral hair ties

  1. Use the right hair oils 

Natural hair oils are the best way to rejuvenate your natural curls. They can help lock in moisture and nourish your curls with the right ingredients. Apply small amounts to keep your curls shiny and hydrated. Try Insight Elasti-Curl – Bouncy Curls Hair Oil or the Matrix A Curl Can Dream Oil

Key Reasons Why Curly Hair Detanglers Are Good for Curly Hair 

At SalonTrusted, we have curly hair detanglers that are ideal for curly hair care. 

Here are three reasons why curl hair detanglers are good for you: 

  • Reduce hair breakage

Detanglers are designed to minimise hair breakage as they naturally help ease out the knots and tangles in your curly hair. They provide a good slip that allows it to smoothly glide through your curls. 

  • Minimise frizz in your hair

Detanglers smooth out knots and tangles to help significantly reduce frizz. This will help your curly hair look more defined and less unruly. It will give your curly hair the beautiful hairdo that you want. 

  • Manage your curly hair easily

Detanglers are great for saving you time and effort as they make your curly hair more manageable and easier to style. You can go through your curly hair routine far more easily than ever before. 

Here are the top three curl hair detanglers available on Salon Trusted:

Here is our guide to the most talked about and anticipated hair trends for summer 2024: 

  • Bobs, everywhere

There’s a new wave of bobs sweeping Hollywood. Everywhere you look, every other celebrity is donning a bob. There are so many variations to the classic bob that you can witness on the red carpet, movie premiers, and talk shows and events. Some of these are shoulder-length bobs, jaw-length bobs, Italian bobs, choppy chin-length bobs, curly bobs, soft curved bobs, cheekbone-grazing 90s bobs, Pulp Fiction’s Mia Wallace-inspired bobs, blunt bobs, and so many more. 

Here are a few pictures for your inspiration:

This hairstyle is versatile because it works for any type of hair, curly, silky, etc. And you can always switch up the style by trying out a new texture or making it with a new part.

  • The ‘Shaggy’ Look 

If you’ve got curly hair, the classic shaggy style is a great look for the summer. It’s instant, requires minimal effort, and looks flawlessly messy. Some popular variations are short and wild shag, the modern shag, the short shag, the shoulder-cut shag, shaggy bangs, and more. 

The shaggy look is quick and easy, layer it up, or tie it up in a ponytail for that summer heat. It’s easy to handle and easy to style. 

Here are a few pictures to inspire you:

  • The Pixie Cut 

If you have angular or pixie-esque face features, you can don a pixie cut. This very sleek and short hairstyle has been trending a lot for two years now with some of the A-list celebrities showcasing it at major events. Florence Pugh, Zoe Kravitz, Emma Corrin, and more have been seen with pixie cuts that have stolen hearts at movie premieres. 

Since it’s a small and easy-to-maintain cut, it goes well with oval faces, round faces, and even heart-shaped faces. 

Here are a few pictures to inspire you:

  • The Midi ‘Lob’

This is a longer variation of the bob, also called the ‘lob’. For finer hair, and with a good volume, it’s a great hairstyle to wear this summer. It’s easy to maintain and you can keep it at the chin or to the shoulder, it’s up to you. It can be tied back in a ponytail for a fresher look and to beat the summer heat. It has been used to create a flattering and balanced look. 

Many celebrities have been recently seen donning it everywhere, including Zendaya, Sydney Sweeney, Rihanna, and Claire Danes among a few. 

Here are a few pictures to inspire you:

  • The Bangs 

Bangs will never go out of style. They are in this summer as well. The macro bangs have been trending since the Paris Fashion Week, and after the 2024 Grammy Awards, the bangs made a comeback. Celebrities like Lana Del Rey and Anne Hathaway have been seen gracing the bangs at a few award shows. 

The bangs are versatile too, as these can be styled with short hair lengths as well as longer lengths that go down to the shoulders or bust. 

Here are a few pictures to inspire you:

  • Layers 

Long layers are in style and these involve cutting the hair at different lengths to add volume, texture, and movement, all the while maintaining length. 

Last year, we witnessed one-length longer styles, popularly called ‘waterfall layers’, but this year, we have so many variations of the layers seen on celebrities. 

The best thing about the layers is that it is suitable for most hair lengths and hair volume. You can play around and create a look that best suits you. Some popular variations include long layers, choppy layers, textured layers, flippy layers, shaggy layers and more. 

Here are a few pictures to inspire you:

How to Choose the Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Brands in the UK


Have you ever wondered how to buy vegan and cruelty-free skincare, beauty and hair products? Do you want products from brands that are kind to animals and great for the planet? In this blog, we list down how you can buy the best vegan, cruelty-free skincare in the UK, as well as hair and beauty products. Whether you are a dedicated vegan, just curious about plant-based beauty, or a flexitarian, the following tips and recommendations will help you shop smarter and greener. 

What to Look for When Buying Cruelty-Free Beauty Products 

Cruelty-free beauty products means all products that have not been tested on animals at any stage of their production. This holds true for the brand you are buying from as well as third parties that may have collaborated with the brand. As this is highly unethical and unnecessary too since there are now so many alternative methods of testing products and making them safe and reliable. 

However, cruelty-free and vegan are not entirely the same, as some cruelty-free products may contain animal-derived products such as beeswax. honey, lanolin or carmina. To make sure you’re buying a 100% vegan beauty product in the UK, always look for the certifications and labels from the following authorities: 

  • The Leaping Bunny logo
    This is the most recognised and trusted cruelty-free certification in the world, administered by Cruelty-Free International. It guarantees that no animal testing has been done on the finished product or any of its ingredients, by the brand or its suppliers, anywhere in the world. 
  • The Vegan Society logo

This is the oldest and most respected vegan certification in the UK. It ensures that no animal ingredients or by-products are used in the product or its manufacturing process and that no animal testing has been done by the brand or its suppliers. 

  • The PETA logo

This widely recognised cruelty-free and vegan certification is issued by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. It verifies that no animal testing has been done on the product or its ingredients by the brand or its suppliers and that no animal-derived ingredients are used. 

Additionally, you may visit the brand’s website to check out its official stance on animal testing. Almost all brands that are vegan or cruelty-free, or both have dedicated web pages to show their commitment. If you cannot find a clear stance on animal testing or being vegan, it is safer to avoid that brand altogether. 

Tips on Buying Cruelty-Free Hair Products 

For hair care, you may think that it is hard to find vegan and cruelty-free products, but that is not true at all. There are now numerous brands that offer high-quality hair products that are free from all kinds of animal products, and these are not tested on animals either. Here’s how you can find the best vegan and cruelty-free hair products that are suitable for your hair type: 

  • Check the ingredients

Avoid hair products that contain biotin, silk amino acids, collagen, elastin, or keratin. All of these are usually derived from animals. Instead, look for plant-based or synthetic alternatives that give you the same nourishment and strengthen your hair without harming any living soul. 

  • Shop online for vegan, cruelty-free hair products

One of the easiest and most convenient ways to find vegan and cruelty-free hair products is to do a simple search on the internet. Sometimes you will end up finding brands that only sell vegan and cruelty-free products. You can also visit online beauty stores such as Salon Trusted. Just filter your search by hair type, product type, and select ‘vegan’ and ‘cruelty-free’.

  • Ask your local salons

The next time you go to your local salon, ask them to use vegan and cruelty-free products on you. Ask them where to buy these products. They will be happy to recommend products and may even earn commission through affiliate programs. 

Ingredients to Avoid and Ingredients to Look for 

When buying vegan and cruelty-free products, it’s important to look for products that are free from animal-derived ingredients. 

Some common animal-derived ingredients found in hair products include:

  • Keratin
  • Collagen
  • Beeswax
  • Honey

Instead, look for products that contain plant-based ingredients such as:

  • Coconut oil
  • Argan oil
  • Jojoba oil
  • Shea butter

The Benefits of Using Professional Products vs Using High Street Products


If you love your hair, you probably spend a lot of time and money on it?

Great hair and good hair days can clearly make a huge difference in how you feel about yourself so we are prepared to part with our cash to get more of those good hair days. It’s a great confidence booster afterall.

Here at Salon Trusted we want to help answer the commonly asked questions ‘am I using the right products for my hair?, ‘am I getting the best value hair products for my money?’

You may be tempted to save a few pounds by buying budget hair products from the high street, thinking that they are all the same. But, in reality, there is a huge difference between high street products and professional hair products. Let’s explore how using professional hair products can benefit you and your hair compared to using high street hair products, and we will look to explain why it is worth investing in salon-quality hair care to get the best results. 

The Value in Using Professional Hair Products 

The value behind using professional hair products is the special science and attention provided to the carefully chosen ingredients. These are products designed by experts who know how different ingredients affect the different types of hair. These high-quality ingredients are chosen and fused together to cater to all kinds of different hair and hair needs. These are tested rigorously and quality assured to give consistent and excellent results with each use.  

On the other hand, high street hair products in the UK are often mass-produced with synthetic and cheap ingredients. These can significantly damage your hair in the long run. And since these high street products are a one-size-fits-all solution, they may not be ideal for two people with different hair types. Sometimes, these products also contain harmful chemicals such as parabens, silicones, and sulphates. These chemicals can strip away your natural oils leaving your hair dry, prone to breaking, and can often leave coloured hair look faded. This also means that in order to get the same result every time, you may have to use more product with each use.

Professional hair products from us at Salon Trusted may seem expensive at first, but they work better and last longer than their high street counterparts. You usually need a small amount of these better quality products to get great results. Sometimes, you may not have to wash your hair as often either. Additionally, you get healthier, more manageable, and shinier hair every time.  Ultimately the professional products are far more trustworthy and do tend to lead to better results trusting you are using the product suited to your hair.

The Pro Products Significantly Protect Your Hair 

Professional hair care products are formulated specifically for a purpose. They are more durable in protecting your hair from any kind of factor that may damage or harm your hair. For example, if your hair is colour-treated, a high street hair product may not be effective in washing and preserving the colour of your hair. Whereas, a professional product will contain ingredients that help in protecting your hair from things like heat styling, UV rays, chlorine, and pollution. Apart from protection, these will also hydrate and nourish your hair and prevent it from being dull or faded. 

You will clearly see that some high street colour care products may claim to do all of this too but they often fail to deliver the desired result. They contain harsh detergents that can easily wash away your colour treatment quickly. Sometimes, they do not even contain any beneficial nutrients to keep your hair nutrient-rich and moisturised. Professional products will keep your hair vibrant, rich and beautiful. 

The Performance is Always Impeccable 

In terms of performance, professional hair products outshine their high street counterparts. These professional salon-grade products are guaranteed to deliver results because they contain high-grade ingredients catered to and customised to your specific hair type and need. In contrast, high street products are a gamble as you may never get the result you desired. 

Professional hair products are designed to address specific hair concerns and goals, such as curl definition, frizz control, volume control, shine enhancement, and much more. Their advanced formulas work well with your hair’s natural texture and structure to the best possible outcome. In contrast, high street hair products are generic and expected to work the same promised magic on any type of hair and desired style. Not only do high street products perform poorly, but they may also result in unwanted build ups or residue. These will make your hair look dull or greasy. 

Buy from Your Local Salons and Support Them 

After understanding why professional hair products are better than high street ones, the next step is to find trusted places to buy these. The answer is very simple; buy them from your local salon. You will end up getting high-quality professional products that suit your hair type and needs. You will also be greatly supporting your local salon through possible affiliate programs. The talented stylists will also offer precise and professional advice on how to use these products and work their magic on your hair.

Show appreciation for the craft of your local stylists, and help them by buying professional products they can easily guide you on. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
