Summer Time Tips
If you suffer from bone dry hair with strands that are brittle and lack shine, here are some tips that will help you protect your ends:
1. Avoid Stripping hair of healthy oils! Coat strands with conditioner before using shampoo. Apply conditioner to the mid-point down to the ends then shampoo as you normally do. The conditioner acts as a buffer, that can clean your scalp and roots, but the ends won’t get dry. After rinsing re-apply the conditioner to your entire head again and rinse as usual.
2. It is IMPORTANT to block the sun!
Intense temperatures and UV rays can sizzle the skin and hair! Before going outside spritz a UV inhibitor or sun screen spray to protect your hair from becoming dull, dried out and loosing its shine. If your hair is long enough, try putting it into a braid and shield it as much as possible.
For a quick fix use an oil based serum, they’re like energy drinks for your hair. Serums instantly hydrate and revive your hair leaving it with a healthy soft shine. If hair is fine go with a leave in conditioner, to leave a light film that will moisturize without making hair greasy, massage it into your hair in sections starting with the tips and working upwards towards the root.
Products I recommend using come from the Davines line.
Davines specializes in great looking and and healthy hair.
The “DEDE” leave in conditioner works magically, and smells great. Not greasy, and instantly adds shine.
The “MELU” serum repairs split ends, repairs hair.
I highly recommend these products, because as I’ve worked with them I’ve seen amazing results. We’d like your feed back on how these tips have worked for you!
Have fun this summer, but be sure to follow these tips to protect your hair! J
