The most amazing thing about being a woman is that we can bounce back from almost anything, and so can our hair! Summer activities like going to the beach and swimming in a chlorine-filled pool can cause our hair to dry out and become brittle so it’s important to pay a little extra attention to your hair to ensure those locks are gorgeous all summer long!
- Never brush your hair when its wet. When our hair is wet, the follicles are weakened and are more prone to breaking.
- Never apply heat to your hair when wet. When heat is applied to wet hair, it completely withdraws the moisture from your hair. Instead, wait for your hair to dry or use the cool setting on the hair dryer and then use the hot setting.
- Always apply a heat protective spray. This adds moisture to your hair, preventing the natural moisture from evaporating and enabling your hair to keep its natural shine. These are our absolute favorites below:
Lastly, the ultimate healthy hair tip is to use a hair balm in the shower!
When you blow dry, flat iron or chemically treat your hair, you end up with wick, rough hair with split ends. Heat completely ruins the body of your hair and you won’t get that same shine which is why you MUST use a hair balm! Hair balms coat each strand of hair and seal in the moisture making each follicle smoother than ever. This truly makes our hair look beautiful and brings back our hair after years of styling! The balm is to be applied while your hair is still warm after you have shampooed and conditioned. If you have fine hair apply the product mid-way down, if you have thicker hair you can apply at the root. Massage it in for about 5 minutes and then rinse. By applying this when your hair is warm from the shower, your hair follicles are more absorbent of the product, allowing it to work it’s magic from the inside out. The product we use is L’Oreal’s Total Repair 5 System and it does absolute wonders! You can now officially say “goodbye” to dry dull hair and hello to healthy silky soft locks!
