With warmer weather upon the horizon sun protection is on our minds at Michauds.
Fact: did you know that the number one cause of all premature aging is the sun? UVA and UVB rays are affecting our skin everyday, rain or shine. The UV rays can even penetrate through glass, so its extremely important to be wearing SPF protection on a daily basis. At Michauds, we carry some of the best SPF products on the market. The high quality products include Zinc Oxide , which offers the largest spectrum protection against UVA rays. We carry a wide range of SPF options to suit all skin types and preferences. From moisturizers and BB creams to organic mineral powders, we have something for everyone. Come in today and have one of our highly educated Estheticians assist in finding you the perfect sun protection!
With our post last week about Preserving your Colour, we thought we would share just how fabulous Color Extend really is. Color Extend uses IPN - Interlock Protein Network. IPN is a revolutionary new delivery system that brings protein to the core of hair for enhanced strength and conditioning. It is comprised of three ingredients that work together during wet and dry phases to repair the hair from the inside out.
Color Extend Shampoo is for color treated hair. It protects hair color from UVA/UVB rays which translates into fade protection. This shampoo is an award winning product that maximizes color vibrancy while strengthening hair. Other benefits of this shampoo are your hair's appearance and manageability. Color Extend will strengthen and reconstruct hair even with daily shampooing.
Color Extend Conditioner resurfaces the cuticle for a smooth, vibrant finish. This conditioner uses Redken's Fade Resist Complex with IPN, that helps with color retention, anti-fade protection, maximizing color vibrancy and strengthening hair. Try Redken's conditioner for color treated hair to improve your hair's health and appearance !

You’ve just left the salon after visiting with one of Michauds amazing stylists and your colour looks fabulous, how do you keep it looking fresh and vibrant between appointments? Our biggest tip is to make sure you prebook your next colour appointment!
Use a professional colour-safe shampoo and conditioner:
All of Redken’s products are safe for your colour however, Colour Extend is always our first recommendation to keep your colour vibrant . We still have Colour Extend duos 25% off in our salon, while supplies last. Most non-colour safe shampoos will strip your colour. Be sure to ask your stylist for a personal recommendation regarding the best hair care products for your hair.
Shampoo less often:
Even when using a colour safe shampoo the less you shampoo the better.
** HOT TIP! Throw on a shower cap and make your blow out last a little longer.
Keep hair healthy:
We highly recommend our back bar treatments. This includes Redken's Chemistry System. The healthier your hair is, the better it accepts and holds on to colour. Be sure to always read our blog as we will keep posting our methods and discoveries for keeping your hair as healthy as possible.
Protect hair from the sun:
All of us at Michauds are still bundled up in leggings and boots but when we are lucky enough to get some sunshine we always do our best to protect our colour! Great ways to do this are to throw on a floppy hat and your sunnies. Your vibrant colour and glowing skin will thank you!
Colour depositing conditioner:
We carry Evo’s Fabuloso line of colour conditioners. Evo comes in 6 colours so there is one for everyone! It can liven up brunettes, restore vibrancy to redheads or keep blondes from yellowing.
If your friends love your colour as much as you do, don't forget you both can receive $20 off your next visit with our referral program! Ask your stylist for more details!

Keshia and Kelsey gave up their Sunday to donate their time to the Princess Project. If you haven't heard of this organization, The Princess Project provides dresses, shoes, hair and makeup to disadvantaged graduating teens in the local area. Kelsey loves doing updos and Keshia has an eye for makeup, they both enjoyed the event. Keep them in mind if you're looking for a grad stylist!

Is it time to grow out your hair in to flowing locks? Are you dreaming of mermaid waves? If you're ready to gain some length check out our top tips.
Keep it healthy- If you are going to have long hair you want it to be healthy; dry damaged locks will never be long
Get regular trims- Don’t skip trims. When you see split ends, regular mini trims will keep hair healthy and prevent the breakage from traveling up the hair. Every 7 weeks is a perfect time frame to come in.
Myth: Cutting hair makes your hair grow faster. We aren’t sure how this got around but cutting your hair won’t make your hair grow faster. It will get rid of damaged ends before they get worse and strand breaks.
Conditioning treatments- In salon treatments and at home products are your best friend if you want flowing locks. Check out this post for why you need Redken’s Chemistry System. At home products are a must for keeping hair in check, ask your stylist to recommend the shampoo/conditioner that’s right for you. And as always Redken’s Antisnap is one of our favorite at home products for keeping hair in good shape (Don’t forget its 20% off for the month of March!).
Protein treatments- Our favorite is Redken’s CAT. No it’s not for your feline friend, CAT reconstructs, reconditions and adds immediate strength. This is the product for clients who serious about growing their hair and keeping it strong. You can take it home with you or we can do it for you in salon with any service.
Protect it from heat- If your curling iron is hot enough to cook a turkey, it might be too hot for your hair! Sometimes we need high heat to achieve a style but try turning the heat down and see if it works for you on a lower setting. Redken has 3 heat protecting sprays to be used with all hot tools. We love them because with heat memory your style might last you a day or two longer! Ask your stylist to help pick the right one for your hair.
Patience- Hairstylist’s are notoriously the most impatient people so we understand, it might feel like it is taking forever but keep up with the tips above and before you know it your long locks will be blowing in the wind!
Redken’s Chemistry System is every Michaud’s stylist secret weapon. It is our insurance policy for preserving color; it repairs hair strands from too many color processes and protects our hair from overused hot tools.
What is it?
The chemistry System is a two part intense conditioning treatment. It is an exclusive in salon service that lasts up to 20 washes.
Step 1: The Shot Phase.
Your stylist picks from 6 types of shots based on your hair needs, they can be used alone or mixed for a custom treatment. They contain a concentration of specialized ingredients for the missing components in the hair.
Step 2: The Phix Phase.
After the shot phase has been on the hair for 5 min we spray a pH balancer on the hair. This seals the cuticle into compact healthy condition and locks in the ingredients of the shot phase.
This $10 conditioning treatment can be added on to any service, remind you stylist next time you're in to see us!
