Protect or Repair Summer Hair

Now that summer heat is here, it’s time to talk about protecting or repairing summer hair.

First, replace lost moisture. Look for shampoos and conditioners that contain rich moisture such as Vitamin E and moisture rich lipids. If conditioners weigh down your hair, then treat only the areas needed or use a leave in conditioner but rinse it out.

If your hair color has faded over the summer, add life back by using a direct dye product. I prefer Pure Blends. Pure Blends allows a stylist to custom blend a color shampoo for your needs, while offering the moisture as described above. If your color has extreme fade-out, perhaps your hair needs to be filled. Hair Filler plumps strands from the inside out, imparting strength, volume, and shine. This process should only be done by a qualified professional.

Summer can leave us with frizz. The best way to handle frizz as we move in the fall months is with argan oil. Argan oil can help repair the hair due to the proteins found in the argan nut. Make sure you detangle with care. Start combing your hair from the bottom up. You must detangle in this fashion in order to prevent breaking your hair. Rinsing hair with cold water after you condition and using a detangling product will help. A proper brush is important as well. Wet Brush is my choice.

Don’t forget the most important thing in repairing summer hair is a good haircut. It does not have to be dramatic. It does remove split ends and should make your hair more manageable, especially in the Florida heat and humidity.

Please feel free to call or email with any questions about how to treat summer hair.
