Clean Beauty in the Grand Strand

Chemicals and contaminants linked to cancer can be found in food, water and many other everyday products. However, no category of consumer products is subject to less government oversight than cosmetics and other personal care products. Although many of the chemicals and contaminants in cosmetics and personal care products likely pose little risk, exposure to some has been linked to serious health problems, including cancer. Since 2019, Baddhare Salon and Spa has advocated for clean beauty. What makes us so unique is the clean beauty options and education provided to our guests and staff. With the support of  Clean Living Educator at Baddhare, Leslie Menich Innersense was adopted as the best better beauty option offered throughout the salon. Innersense Organic Beauty pushes the boundaries of new product development by utilizing organic chemistry to raise the bar on clean, luxurious formulas with professional performance to care for your hair, health and planet. Dedicated to wellness through uplifting affirmations, self care and hair ceremonies, our mission is to inform, inspire and empower beauty professionals and consumers to make healthy choices with a brand that aligns with their personal values. Clean chemistry, radical transparency and a commitment to the environment are their promise. This means no parabens, silicones, sulfates, synthetic fragrances or questionable ingredients. It’s your health. It’s our planet. Last month, the Baddhare Team had the opportunity to host an Innersense product knowledge and curly inspired cutting class. Educator, Erin Nelson travelled all the way from Chicago to spend a whole day of Innersense clean beauty education and fun. Education is a core value of Baddhare Salon. A well educated and knowledgeable staff can better serve our loyal guests about our product offerings and techniques that would best suit their hair type. When you are choosing a salon in the Grand Strand, choose Baddhare. We are the home of clean beauty choices for our staff and guests. Because, when you know better, you do better.

Brazilian Blowout and Keratin Complex

Are you ready for low maintenance styling and NO MORE FRIZZ???

hair salon curly hairThe Brazilian Blowout hair treatment is a smoothing treatment that originated in Brazil. It’s designed to eliminate frizz, hydrate, seal the hair shaft to prevent damage from heat styling. It also adds overall shine and gloss. The amino acid formula used in the treatment incorporates Brazilian ingredients like camu camu, acai berry, and annato seed. Its bonding technologies create a protective layer around each strand of hair and will actually improve the condition of the hair. This smooths and straightens the hair while allowing you to heat style it with a blow-dryer, curl iron, or flat iron. 

Brazilian Blowout Treatment will be offered for 20% off the whole month of September at Baddhare Salon and Spa. Pricing will vary depending hairs length, density, and stylist. This service is charged per hour.

Do you want to reduce the amount of time spent styling your hair everyday???

A Keratin Complex Treatment will repair hair through the Signature Keratin and a unique blend of ingredients that reinforce weak spots in the hair’s structure to make the hair healthier, stronger and smoother. The keratin treatment is then sealed into the cuticle through the heating process (blow-dry and flat iron) to repair damage and block the humidity that causes frizz. Results are cumulative: the more our keratin treatments are applied, the healthier hair becomes. A Keratin Complex hair treatment can last up to 5 months.

Other benefits include:

  • Improve health of hair
  • Block humidity and eliminate frizz
  • Strengthen and repair damaged hair
  • Reduce breakage
  • Increase manageability and cut blow-dry time
  • Provide anti-aging benefits to the hair

Our local Myrtle Beach Stylist, Chris Corbett is competing for the title of Ultimate Stylist. Chris has been a thriving team member of Baddhare Salon since 2020. His proudest accomplishment so far in his career is being promoted to a level four stylist in his first year behind the chair. Secondly, he is trending to become a six figure stylist in his second year.

Chris's signature looks include blended blondes and fashion colors with textured layers for effortless styling.

Chris’s favorite beauty trend right now is a curtain bangs and the "Wolf Cut".  A wolf cut has become a trend this year thanks to social media and was super popular after blowing up on TikTok! It has gained popularity and is a common go-to by women who love to follow the latest trends, as well as by women who enjoy shorter hair that is easy to maintain.

If Chris wins the title of "Ultimate Stylist", he will use the $10,000 prize money to enhance his career.  He will be investing in furthering his education and marketing towards his ideal clientele. He might also splurge on a well deserved vacation 😉

Fun Fashion Hair Color Tips

You finally made the exciting leap to a fun fashion hair color! Those subtle pastel colors and vivid shades require special  at-home care. Here are a few tips to maintain the health of your hair and keep your new color lasting as long as possible!

Hold on! DON’T SHAMPOO YET!

To help the color set in and minimize bleeding, try to wait 2 days to wash your hair after having your color done.

WASH YOUR HAIR AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE!

If you wash your hair 4-5 times per week, try to reduce your washing down to 2-3 times per week. This will make the color last much longer and preserve your natural oils that nourish your hair.

Keep it COOL...

When you wash your hair with hot water, the cuticles on the outer layer of the hair shaft will open. This will result in moisture loss,  frizz, and will make your hair more susceptible to damage. Try to rinse your hair with cool water. This will seal your cuticles and controls frizz. You can warm the water up after to warm your body.

Professional Products are Important!

You finally have your dream hair color! Don’t use cheap drugstore or grocery product! Protect your investment with color-protecting products. All good colorists will make recommendation for what you an purchase in the salon to use for your at home maintenance. Follow their advice. They are not just trying to make a sale!
