Winter is on its way and at Rainbow Room International this means rich tones, texture and volume. We love to be bold and brave with our colour and style during Autumn/Winter but along with the cold weather, your hair can become dry, difficult to style and your scalp can get irritated. Not what you want during the no.1 party season of the year! So to get your tresses winter ready and follow our tips for glossy, shiny, manageable hair…

 

Go Smooth

Visit your local RRI hair salon and ask your stylist about our professional Nano Keratin Smoothing Treatment done in salon. This is an intensive keramimic based treatment that hydrates, rejuvenates and protects hair against environmental elements such as cold temperatures, wind and rain. Leaving hair smooth, healthy and reduces styling time. Results last up to 12 weeks.

 

Protect, Protect, Protect

Hair masks are vital hair products you should be using during the cold months to keep your hair hydrated and allow it to be easily manageable. Use our Rainbow Room International Exclusive Repair Hair Mask at least once a week for an intensive treatment, which contains white tea extract, is rich in antioxidants and will help protect against environmental damage while promoting the health and integrity of the hair. This product also detangles, reduces frizz and leaves hair feeling soft and smooth.

 

Queen Styling Products

Using the right hydrating and moisturising products during winter can be greatly beneficial, however, always ensure you never use too much product in your hair to avoid product build up and your hair becoming weighed down. Try our Rainbow Room International Glossfoam styling product that is effective against atmospheric moisture and lightweight but with strong hold for a long lasting result. The conditioners in the foam also nourish the hair and prevent it from being damaged while increasing body and creating a natural glossy finish.

 

Dry it Out

Always dry your hair before leaving the house as the moisture in your hair combined with the cold air will add further damage and make your hair brittle and dry. We recommend the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer, which will protect and style your hair with heat control and smoothing nozzle, as used in all of our Rainbow Room International salons. Prior to drying your hair and using any heated styling tools always remember to use a heat protection spray to make sure your hair is protected at all times!

 

Healthy Scalp = Healthy Hair

To soothe and calm your irritated scalp caused by the cold weather and atmospheric moisture, use our Rainbow Room International Scalpcare Therapy Shampoo, containing tea tree and Amino Acids, this shampoo will calm your scalp while encouraging shine and condition for the hair.  Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp and you should always make sure your scalp is in it very best condition! There are also some fantastic scalp scrubs on the market at the moment, which are beneficial to use regularly to keep the scalp exfoliated and healthy.
