Chalk's Ultimate Guide To At Home Hair Care

Are you looking to maintain your salon hair service at home? We’ve got some great tips from your trusted Chalk Salon hair stylists that will be your insurance policy on your hair investment!



Make sure to use salon quality at home products. Drug store hair care is often loaded up with sulfates amongst other ingredients that can strip color and oils from hair. It also coats strands with silicon fillers leaving hair feeling tacky and preventing it from absorbing or retaining moisture. Your stylist will recommend a regiment of salon quality products within your price range! Consider these products your insurance policy to protect your investment in your mane.



If you're looking for a budget friendly professional hair care starter kit, we recommend checking out Amika's line of shampoo, conditioners, treatments and styling products for every hair type and concern!



Wash colored hair in cool water for better color retention. Hot water opens the cuticle causing color run off where as cool water closed the cuticle, preventing color fade.



Sleep on a satin or silk pillow case. Cotton pillowcases absorb products and moisture from your hair and the material can cause hair to tangle and break as you sleep. As satin is a much smoother material, it is far more gentle on your hair and won’t suck the hydration from your thirsty strands. 



ALWAYS use a heat protectant when using hot tools or going out in the sun! Heat of any kind causes major color fading so make sure to shield your hair with the heat protectant application of your choice! We absolutely love Living Proof PHD Heat Styling Spray or Amika Blockade Heat Defense Serum!



Invest in a good brush to prevent breakage. It is wild the difference a good brush makes in grooming your hair and keeping it healthy between trims! We're obsessed with all of Evo's environmentally sourced hair brushes!

Use a nourishing mask once a week. There are so many amazing masks on the market for various hair struggles and needs, so we can guarantee there’s one suited for you! Incorporating a hair mask for hydration, repairing, or smoothing will help keep your hair healthy and in tip top shape for your next salon service. Some of our favourite hair masks are Iles Formula Hair Mask, Olaplex No.3 treatment and No.8 Bond Intense Mask!



Your hair is the crown you never take off and you spend a lot of time and money having it treated professionally! Taking proper care of your hair and using the right at home maintenance products will ensure that you are getting the most out of your beauty investment.
