With the extreme heat of the sun and the extra swimming and exposure to water your hair can be become really dry and brittle. If you don’t take some preventative measures you could do a lot of long term damage to your hair. Here are some simple steps to help you and your hair.

  • Ease up on the heat! Summer is hot enough without adding hair irons, blowdryers and tongs to your hair.


  • Embrace a more natural look by using curls, braids and scrunchy waves.


  • Use products such as sea salt spray to help with the messy srunchy look.


  • Use Redken Fashion Waves to help with that wavy look.


  • Obviously you will use heat styling tools at one point so always use a heat protectant first. We recommend Matrix Iron Smoother.


  • Treat, treat, treat! Treat your hair to treatments. We cannot say this enough. Ask your stylist for an in-salon treatment. They are more potent then what you can do at home. Continue to use treatments weekly at home as well as a leave in moisturiser. Matrix and Redken have amazing treatments but consult your stylist to see which one is best suited to your hair.

  • Cut It. Get regular hair cuts. This is even if you are growing your hair. Having a hair cut every 6 to 8 weeks makes a huge difference to the quality of your hair.


  • Keep your hair out of the swimming water. Do this as much as you can by tying not your hair up and not getting it wet. Chlorine and salt water can be very drying to your hair. Another tip if you are going get your hair wet is to put a protective leave in conditioner. This will help protect your hair from the harsh salts and chemicals. Rocktan Hair Salon Adelaide recommends Matrix Total Results ‘Miracle Treat’.

Every girl wants that sexy summer beach hair. With the right know how you can have it too. The best way to achieve the look comes back to how you apply your products. Firstly you need the right products but more importantly they need to be applied the right way. Multiple products need to be layered into the hair to get the right texture.

Redken have released a new styling range called ‘Signature Look’ which is perfect for the sexy beach look. As a starting point it’s always good to use the right shampoo. For this look using the Redken Curvaceous range will help give the hair volume and define any natural curl in your hair.

So after washing and conditioning your hair towel dry then spray in Redken Fashion Waves Texturizing Sea Spray. Spray a generous amount and scrunch with your hand while spraying. Now let your hair dry. Once dry use Redken Wind Blown Dry Finishing Spray. Spray to through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. This will create an airy effect with tousled body.

If your hair is lacking volume at the roots we recommend using Redken Ruffle Up. This is a volumising gel which when applied to the roots will give an amazing back brushing effect with lots of body.

The style is suppose to be a little messy so it’s extremely easy to do when you know how and guess what, now you know how. This style should last at least 3 days but each morning just spray down a little with water and use a Fashion Waves again with some more scrunching. With a little help from Rocktan Hairdressers Adelaide you can have the look you want.


If your hair doesn’t have much natural movement or you want more wave then your hair is allowing then there is a solution. Using a MUK curling stick pick up random sections of your hair and wrap loosely around the MUK curl stick. Keep it loose and not too long on the heat as you don’t want ringlet curls. Work through the mid-lengths of your hair.

The MUK Curl Stick is an amazing tool which can help you achieve many different styles and looks. It’s also extremely easy to use so anyone can do it. MUK Curl Stick’s are available for under $100 at Rocktan Hairdressers Adelaide.

Do you want long healthy hair that bounces and has beautiful shine. Are you finding your getting knots and tangles and they are hard to brush out. Its a very common occurrence and can be very annoying. It can also cause lots of damage to your hair.

Most of the time these tangles are caused by the condition of your hair and mainly the moisture levels. If you hair is dryer then it tends to be more prone to tangle. Some ways to help protect your hair is to have it regularly cut. 6 to 8 weeks is ideal but not longer than 10 weeks. If you are continually tying your hair up then you must use a special elastic that is metal free. This will prevent the hair catching and weakening the hair, breakage as well as the tangles.

You should brush your hair every day and whenever your hair is wet always use a leave in cream or treatment serum before brushing. A detangling spray can also help if your hair is dry. Another important factor is which shampoo you are using. It must be at a moisture level that suits your hair. You should always purchase your shampoo from a hairdressers Adelaide professional to ensure you are using the correct type for your hair to gain the best results.
