Were those all-day pool parties worth the heat and chlorine exposure on your hair? Yes. But are you eager to get the moisture and shine back in your locks? Absolutely. These six hair treatments available at Miami salons and spas will erase the damage done while you were busy not wasting a second of summer.
You won’t find this treatment on any other salon menu in the state of Florida. Danny Jelaca’s eponymous hair haven in South Beach is one of the few in the world to offer the luxurious, ultra-hydrating Leonor Greyl Masque Quintessence to its clients. The hair mask packed with oils and moisturizers takes less than an hour to soak in under a micro mist steamer, and recipients can also enjoy a head, back, and shoulder massage. 500 South Pointe Dr., Ste. 120, Miami Beach, 305-604-9696
Just like the rest of your body, your mane needs some R&R after what you put it through this summer. True Hair Miami’s Babassu treatment will give your hair what it deserves—it offers enough hydration to last almost a month. After a shampoo, a moisturizing hair mask containing Babassu oil and vitamin E is applied to your tresses and left to set for 20 minutes under a processor. Once it’s rinsed, hair is spritzed with a moisturizing spray and styled. 3449 NE First Ave., Miami, 305-921-4238
Fontainebleau’s Lapis Spa isn’t just for massages and facials (though it doesn’t hurt to get one while you’re there). At the salon, visitors can moisturize their scalp and restore lifeless locks that have been damaged by the sun and harsh chemicals with the Rescue My Hair package. Each treatment is customized—after examining your hair, your stylist will pick out the perfect mask from Davines’ haircare line, and make sure the right essential oils are applied to your thirsty tresses. Fontainebleau Miami Beach, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-674-4772
Kérastase Fusio-Dose Instant Treatment at Sean Donaldson Hair
When your mane is one day away from becoming a frizzy mess, stylist Sean Donaldson recommends coming in—better yet, running in—for the nourishing Kérastase Fusio-Dose treatment customized for your hair type. Thick-haired clients can add the Nutritive Booster Complex to protect their lush locks from further damage, while those with fine hair can opt for the Reconstruction Booster Complex to tame and strengthen their tresses. Lastly, Donaldson suggests that clients with color-treated locks add the Color-Radiance Booster to brighten up and protect their hair’s faux hue. 1674 Meridian Ave., #100, Miami Beach, 305-397-8460
If your friends know to look for you in the pool, and not on your beach chair, you’re all too familiar with the toll chlorine takes on your hair. To repair the damage, book the Aphogee treatment at Miami Beach’s Atma Beauty. Creative director Sheenon Olson tells us that this protein treatment helps correct the pH of your hair and works to close hair cuticles, which keeps the moisture locked in. 1874 West Ave., Miami Beach, 786-216-7510
Part of IGK’s new Miami-inspired line of haircare products, the Hot Girls deep hydrating conditioner treatment will get you back to looking just that—hot. IGK co-founders Leo and Franck Izquierdo recommend treating dried-out, damaged tresses with this hydrating formula, and getting a fresh cut and blowout to make hair as shiny and smooth as it’s ever been. SLS South Beach, 1701 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-455-1431
