Beauty Tips from Long Island's Cactus Salon DID YOU KNOW…?

Jump to Comments

Our friends at Cactus Salon with 28 locations on Long Island have  just sent us some beauty quick fixes now that the summer is over and we transition into the fall season –

Hair:   By the end of the summer, chlorine from your pool may leave hair feeling dry and brittle. Those with light colored hair may even notice hues of green coming through. The quickest way to get your locks looking great again is to use a clarifying shampoo & deep conditioning treatment. Clarify your hair every day and follow with a strong, moisturizing conditioner for at least 3 days. You will see a reduction in the aloe buildup that is turning your hair green and will make your hair look healthier in just a few days time. Alternatively, in-salon treatments can range from $15-$60 and will provide you with an instant, custom designed remedy for all hair issues and will immediate improve the texture of your hair.

Complexion:   Although today, most people protect their face from the sun with sunscreens, skin is still vulnerable to damage. Home exfoliation once a week can help to even out skin tone and remove dry, dead skin from the surface. Most cosmetic and skin care companies offer an exfoliating wash in their lines. Always select one for sensitive skin as most others can be too abrasive. Avoid the eye area when exfoliating and always follow with a non-oil based moisturizer. Alternatively, licensed aestheticians can perform microdermabrasions and chemical peels that can help to eliminate fine lines, minimize pores & dramatically improve your complexion. Advanced skin care by professionals can help to turn back the hands of time.
