Malibu Treatment for Swimmers

Is your child’s hair feeling dry, brittle, sticky, tangled or even has a straw-like shine to it or is slightly green? These all could be signs of chlorine damage.

Kids’ Hair offers an in-salon Malibu Treatment to naturally removes chlorine, minerals and salts.

Who needs a Malibu Treatment?

For kids who swim multiple times a week, a Malibu Treatment once a month can really help reverse and prevent damage.  For the casual summer swimmer, getting a treatment before back-to-school is a great way to ensure healthy, soft hair and restore moisture before the fall dry air and wind makes dealing with snarls and tangles even more difficult.

Our Treatment Process

The treatment process takes 30-45 minutes and starts with a shampoo with Malibu’s Swimmers Wellness and the application of Malibu’s swimmer’s treatment product. Next your child watches a movie at one of our stations with a heat processing cap on for 15-30 minutes depending on their hair thickness and extent of chlorine damage. Finally, the stylist extracts all the build-up and minerals that have been pulled out from the treatment, shampoos and conditions with Malibu products, dries and styles the hair to go!

Don’t swim but have dry hair?

For kids who don’t swim but are still dealing with dry or easily tangled hair from playing outdoors and summer sports, Kids’ Hair has a Conditioning Treatment, an in-salon “Miracle Repair” treatment similar to the Malibu treatment process but for hair damaged or dry from other influences than chlorine. The treatment restores strength, shine and moisture, repairing the damage from sun and wind and making hair much more manageable and healthy looking.

A Malibu or Conditioning Treatment is $22.50. A treatment and haircut combo is only $35.00 (Save $6.00!).  Appointments are required due to the treatment time taking 30-45 minutes.

Kids’ Hair celebrates 25 years!

We are very excited to be celebrating our 25th year as a locally owned and operated Minnesota business!

It all started with one location in Edina on August 5, 1992 and has now grown to 12 locations spanning major Twin Cities suburbs and a St. Cloud location.

Thank you to all the families who have visited over these years and have trusted us to cut their  children’s hair! Our mission always has been and continues to be to provide high quality haircuts in a fun, safe and comfortable environment while also keeping them 15 minutes or less! It isn’t always easy but we are proud to maintain these quality and customer service goals year after year.

Being around for 25 years now has meant we’ve begun to see the second generation of Kids’ Hair kids! It is pretty awesome to see past customers bring in their little ones for their first haircuts. We are looking forward to the next 25 years and promise to do all that we can for our families to make each haircut a precise, high quality one and every experience fun and special.

We plan on having a company-wide birthday party in August and will have fun happenings in-store including discounts, handouts and more. Make sure to sign-up to receive our emails by entering your email address under the “HairMail” header at the top of the page to receive information on the celebration!

Swim and Summer Haircare tips

Swimming season, trips to the beach and other summer fun are finally here!  A lot of summer activities can be especially hard on children’s hair and skin. Between chlorine damage at the pool, dry hair and skin from lake water and sand and tangled hair from playing outside, dealing with your children’s hair in the summer can become a stressful, time consuming task. Kids’ Hair is here to help with advice, how-to’s and treatment options. We are also proud to sell the widest variety of kid-specific swim and summer haircare products in the Twin Cities! Parents can do a few simple things to keep hair healthy-looking all summer long and ready for back-to-school and picture day…too soon?

Swimmers

Chlorine loves children’s fine hair and build-up can make hair tangled, brittle, sticky and even turn hair green.  Keep in mind, swimming at the lake can also damage and especially dry out hair due to oxidizing metals in the water. To prevent damage, there are simple steps you can take before and after swimming:

Before swimmingpreswim

  1. Wet hair thoroughly with fresh water.  Hair follicles are like sponges, they will soak up what they can.  If your hair is full of fresh water, there is less space for the chlorine and other chemicals to permeate.
  2. For girls with longer hair, putting it in a simple, tight braid before swimming will help with managing their hair when they come out of the pool.
  3. Use a pre-swim conditioner.  We carry Circle of Friends Kylie’s Pre-Swim and So Cozy Splash Swim Leave-in + Detangler. These conditioners contain ingredients that act like a coating on the hair shaft to prevent chemicals from getting through. Just wet hair, spray liberally and evenly distribute.

After swimming

  1. Immediately rinse hair thoroughly. You want to take out as much of the chemicals or salt as possible before they dry on the hair and scalp.
  2. After a good rinse, shampoo with a clarifying or swimmers shampoo. We carry Malibu Swimmers Wellness Shampoo, a vegan, salon quality swimmers shampoo great for kids and adults and Circle of Friends George’s Swimmer’s Shampoo which is a bit milder and is perfect for toddlers or those with really fine hair. We also carry SoCozy Swim 3 in 1 that is a great after-swim shampoo, conditioner and body wash to use while rinsing off directly after swimming to repair hair and moisturize skin.
  3. Follow with a good conditioner, even a leave-in conditioner, to add moisture back to the hair.  We carry Malibu Swimmers Wellness Conditioner with a rich blend of proteins and amino acids to strengthen and rehydrate hair. We also carry Circle of Friends Emma’s After-Swim Conditioner which is a moisturizing leave-in conditioner featuring a coconut scent and added vitamins to help strengthen hair.

Other Summer Hair Tips

Wind and sun can be especially damaging to children’s hair, scalp and skin. Dealing with dry tangled hair can really put a damper on summer fun.  Here are our tips for taming snarls throughout summer:

  1. For kids with long hair, always put it up in a braid, pony or bun. This will help cut down on the time it takes to comb through it afterwards.
  2. Keep moisture and manageability in hair by using a conditioner, even try using a Leave-in Conditioner. If you are worried about using too much conditioner on fine hair due to heaviness or greasiness, you can always apply it to just the back of the head and length, avoiding the scalp and front. We carry a variety of high quality, kid-friendly conditioners. Try Circle of Friends Pia’s Pineapple
    leave-in conditioner, Original Sprout Deep Conditioner or Glop & Glam’s Cake Batter Conditioner.
  3. Use detanglers before going outside and during comb-outs afterwards. The best detanglers have vitamins and protein in the ingredients to help strengthen hair. All of our kid-specific lines carry a detangler.  Choose the brand or scent you like best!
  4. Avoid breaking hair and creating fly aways by using a brush sunscreendesigned to help get through tangled hair. We carry both Knot Genie’s Teeny Genie and the Lil’ Wet Brush. Perfect sizes to encourage kids to be brushes their own hair.
  5. Don’t forget about little one’s skin! We carry Original Sprout’s Face & Body Sunscreen, a non-greasy natural sunscreen that is great for the whole family, including babies or toddlers with sensitive skin or those whose skin gets irritated easily by other products and sunscreens.

swinggirlSummer is hard on children’s hair! Make sure you and your child are taking the right steps so that tangled, discolored or damaged hair doesn’t disrupt family fun! If your child’s hair is looking especially dull or dry or is becoming a hassle with too many tangles that seem to get snarly way to quickly, it might be a good idea to come to Kids’ Hair for a Conditioning Treatment.  An in-salon “Miracle Repair” treatment similar to the Malibu treatment process but for hair damaged or dry from other influences than chlorine. The treatment restores strength, shine and moisture, repairing the damage from sun and wind and making hair much more manageable and healthy looking.

Visit any of our locations and ask a Kids’ Hair Stylist to learn more about ideas, tips and products you can use for the whole season.

Have a wonderful summer!!
