Welcome Summer “Use your sunscreen” is a message we’ve all heard over and over, and most of you have taken heed. However, many of you overlook protecting your hair from the summer sun, salt water and chlorine. These activities can wreak havoc with your hair. How do you know if the summertime pleasures, we all indulge in, are making an impact on your tresses? Salon Eva Michelle identifies two of the most common in our June blog.
- Faded Hair Color
- Frizzy Hair
Here are two HairResQ tips for how you can protect your hair as summer kicks into high gear:
Faded Hair Color – Wear a hat. It sounds so simple, but many of you do not wear hats and this is the number one way you can protect your hair from fading. Hats have the added benefit of protecting your scalp from the UV rays of the sun. For those of you non-hat people, you should always, not just in the summer, rinse your hair with cool water, not hot water. Cool water will help close the hair cuticle and seal in moisture. We also suggest a color protection shampoo like, Wella Professionals Elements Renewing Shampoo and Lightweight Conditioner. This sulfate-free shampoo and paraben free conditioner renews the moisture of the hair, strengthening and nourishing it.
Frizzy Hair – Although nothing is 100% guaranteed to fend off the summer fizzes brought on by the humidity. ORIBE’s Impermeable, Frizz-Free Anti Humidity Spray, used after styling, is our go to product before we walk out the door for work or play. We also recommend using a smoothing oil before or after blow drying. Wella Professionals Reflections Oil, made with macadamia seed oil, avocado oil and vitamin E, leaves hair feeling light and supple with a healthy looking shine.
The summer may be short, but it is long enough that we should adjust our hair regimen to make certain we protect it. These summer HairResQ tips will help prevent dry, faded, frizzy hair with split ends so you can have a beautiful healthy hair to match your bronze glowing skin.
