As a society and as a salon, we love hair color! Light, dark, rainbow: we love it all! There are unfortunate realities when it comes to color though. At the end of the day, you are putting strong chemicals on your hair and altering it on a molecular level. As intimidating as that may sound, color doesn’t have to be a scary or damaging process. There are several guidelines you can abide by if you color your hair to protect it and keep it as healthy as possible.
Regular hair cuts! Trimming your hair on a regular schedule will help prevent breakage on your ends and prevent breakage from moving up your hair strands. 6 – 8 weeks is recommended.
Cool water! Rinsing your hair with cool to cold water will preserve your color longer and will be more gentile on your hair. Hot water opens your hair’s cuticle letting your color fall out and making your hair more susceptible to breakage.
Color safe shampoo and conditioner! Using the right products will go a long way with your hair. We provide color safe shampoos and conditioners during your service and we have several options available for retail from Neuma and Pulp Riot.
Conditioning mask! Last but certainly not least, we recommend during your color service to also receive a conditioning mask. It’s as simple as sitting for an additional 5- 10 minutes at the shampoo bowl! You can also add a conditioning treatment onto a hair cut appointment or even a blowout appointment. For this service we use Oligo Blacklight Intensive Replenishing Mask. Specifically designed for color treated hair, this strengthening mask uses the power of argan oil and 11 amino acids to moisturize and repair while also increasing shine and color retention. It will bring life back into your hair! Love it and can’t get enough? Not only is this mask available for purchase but it is also our March product of the month! Buy this mask during the month of March and receive 10% off!
You love your colored hair, so act like it! We want to help you have your dream hair so book a conditioning treatment asap! You can do so by calling, email, or the Book Now tab above.
In the beauty world it can be challenging to find a vegan version of every product you need. A smoothing treatment that doesn’t contain keratin from an animal and that actually works is a rarity. After research and trial runs, we have found one that we absolutely love and clients are loving too! Introducing OXO Organic Smoothing Treatment! Formaldehyde, ammonia, and sulfur free; this smoothing treatment is the healthiest choice for smoother, straighter, and more manageable hair. While anti-bacterial and anti-static, this treatment also moisturizes and rebuilds your cell structures.
Being a vegan salon is a priority for us and we are so happy to be able to provide these services to our community.

Winter is finally here and she is going to be sticking around for a while. With colder weather comes drier hair, skin, and nails. It’s a burden we all battle but Lox is here to help! This winter season, we are offering essential oil treatments. Lavender, rosemary, tea tree, and peppermint go a long way!
Dry scalp? We have two essential oils scalp treatments to choose from. One utilizes rosemary, peppermint, and lavender to promote healthy scalp and hair growth. The second, uses tea tree to encourage a healthy scalp and immune system. Both options treat and prevent scalp psoriasis and dryness.
Dry hair? With the help of a conditioning treatment and argan oil, your hair will be back to normal. Our Neumoisture Intensive Masque uses Jojoba, grape seed, and yarrow extract to give your hair the moisture it’s been craving. Meanwhile, our Neusmooth Revitalizing Masque uses quinoa protein, horsetail extract, and marula seed oil to strengthen and smooth your hair. Either option will leave your hair feeling soft, fresh, and revived. Neurepair Argan Oil Treatment will take care of your hair before blowdrying or on already dry hair. Argan oil, rose hips fruit extract, and green tea extract hydrate, repair, and reduce breakage.

Beards may seem like an easier option than shaving but they still need extra love! We have some awesome tips and products to help you out.
Before you shower, brush your beard out. That will detangle the hair and breakup any dry skin or build up. Once you are ready to shampoo and condition your hair, add your beard into the routine! It’s easy to forget that your beard needs that kind of love too. After its all fresh, clean and moisturized, you can comb it and dry it with a blow dryer or let air dry naturally. Beard hair can be very thick, coarse and curly so moisture is going to be your beard’s best friend. Products like Anchors Aweigh Bearded Sailor Beard Oil and Bearded Sailor Beard Balm will help with that! Last but not least, beard trims are a vital part of beard care. Not only can beards get split ends but they can also get unruly. Regular trims will help with controlling the shape you want and maintaining its health. Proper care will keep you and your beard looking trendy and groomed rather than scraggly and sloppy.
We love your beard and want you proudly showing it off!
Sun, sand, wind, water. These are things we may love at the beach, but our hair doesn’t. If you are going to the beach for vaca or if you are constantly living it up on the lake, we have a few tips for you to take care of your lovely locks.
Hair is very absorbent and salt water is very harsh on the hair so before you get into water, pour fresh clean water over your hair. Your hair will absorb the clean water instead of the ocean, lake or pool water. That way you are not getting any harsh chemicals, minerals or grime into your hair.
Whether your hair has been colored or not, the sun will lighten your hair color if you are outside for extended periods of time. Hats are your hair’s best friend to keep it safe from the sun, but if hats aren’t your style, our entire Eufora product line is UV protective.
Tangles and tears taking over? Use a conditioning treatment and a wide tooth comb to get you back to where you need to be! Moisture shampoos and conditioners are ALWAYS a good idea anyway. To try to prevent tangling, a french braid will help keep your hair in place.
The beach doesn’t have to ruin your hair! Just a few easy tips and tricks and you can keep your hair nice and healthy!
