With summer coming to an end, it’s time to start taking care of our hair to regain hydration and health and reverse the damage accumulated during the hot season. In spite of all the fun that the season provides, high sun exposure, warm temperatures, beaches, and pools can end up affecting the hair. We start noticing symptoms such as dryness, roughness, and opacity, which indicates that it is time to intensify treatments to recover capillary health. To help you enter the fall with soft, moisturized hair and full of life, we set up a guide with tips to regain the health of the hair after the hottest season of the year. Check out!
Dry hair? Invest In Hydration And Capillary Nutrition
One of the most significant effects of the summer is hair dryness. With sun exposure, the sun rays reach the hair fiber. This leads to reducing the water retention inside the hair as they affect the opening of the cuticle. As a result, the hair becomes more brittle, opaque, porous, and dehydrated. The hair loses their brilliance, gain split ends, and get the abrasive touch.
The best solution to regain fiber health is nourishing and moisturizing treatments, which return moisture and lost nutrients throughout the season. Kérastase’s Soleil line is an excellent choice for treating hair during and after the summer. It hydrates and repairs the hair from damage caused by the season’s harmful agents. Bain Après-Soleil is an anti-damage shampoo that strengthens fiber sensitized by sun exposure. Masque Soleil is recommended to nourish, moisturize, strengthen, and repair your hair affected by the action of sun rays. In addition to returning the softness and shine of the hair, it still has anti-frizz properties that do not weigh in the threads, preserving its lightness and natural movement.
Add Capillary Oil To Your Daily Hair Care Routine
Using a nutritious capillary oil to complete the care routine is critical to treat the hair dryness. That’s why it’s essential to invest in a multifunctional hair oil that has nutritional properties and helps align the cuticle and fight the frizz. Kérastase’s L’Huile Originale oil is perfect for treating hair affected by the drying action of the sun, seawater and swimming pool. Its formula offers deep nutrition, soft touch, and radiant shine for the hair.
Elixir Ultime is a perfect alchemy of active ingredients that take care of several hair needs at the same time. It offers nutrition, strength, and hydration to the hair in a single application. To include the product in your routine, use it as a leave-in. The best way is to apply in small amounts and starting at the tips as they are most fragile. You can apply the Elixir Ultime oil on dry and wet hair. You can also apply it on days when you did not wash your hair as a retouch of the treatment. Use the product once a day and increase the applications as you feel it is necessary.
Use A Moisturizing Leave-in And Sun Protection Even After The Summer
It is vital to keep hair protected from the sun even after the summer. When the season is over, the heat loses its intensity, but the oxidizing and drying effect of the sun rays continues to take effect and continues to damage the hair throughout the rest of the year. Therefore, it is essential to protect your hair daily with a good leave-in with a filter against solar action and ultraviolet radiation. This action will return the health to the hair. The 10-in-1 Vitamino Color leave-in is an excellent choice for your hair during sun exposure while protecting it will also fight against the anti-frizz, breakage, and double ends.
Decrease The Use Of Hot Tools
Because by the end of the summer the hair tends to be more dry and fragile, it becomes more sensitive to breakage and to develop split ends. Therefore, it is important to avoid any habit that may further weaken your hair. Try to avoid direct contact with hot tools, such as hairdryer and flat iron. The use of these tools that emit high temperatures ends up increasing the dilation of the capillary scales and facilitating the loss of water and nutrients. As you already know, dehydration and loss of nutrients can aggravate hair dryness. To avoid this, reduce the use of the devices and let the hair dry naturally as much as possible. When it is not possible to prevent the use the tools, try to apply a suitable thermal protector high temperatures. One of my favorites is the Revlon Uniq One leave-in.
Has The Blonde Got Greenish, And The Brown Is Reddish?
The chlorine and sodium sulfate in the pool water react with the yellow tone of the hair, making it green. In brown hair, the result is reddish nuances or clearer tips. The first step is to do a deep cleaning with a scouring shampoo to eliminate the chemical agents. Then apply toner without ammonia to colorize. You can also use a good moisturizer or reconstructive mask. This will disguise the problem for a few weeks. However, after that, you will need to see a professional to fix the tone. A good tip for you is to use daily shampoo and conditioner with wheat proteins.
Has The Glow Gone?
The hair will only be able to reflect the light if the surface is uniform, retained, with the cuticles closed. Also, it can not miss the protein. For this to happen, you have to do hydration weekly. A sealant treatment that aligns the cuticles is indicated. You can also do a cauterization or keratin loading on your hair. When you want immediate results, throw in the sprays and glittering serums – they have a temporary effect, but are perfect for giving a shy in the look and impression of well-kept hair.
Was The Damage Too Severe? Perform A Professional Treatment At The Beauty Salon!
Sometimes the hair becomes so dry and fragile that only the realization of homemade treatments does not seem to be sufficient to treat damaged hair. If you feel that the care at home is not solving your hair problems, it is best to go to the beauty salon. A competent professional will give you a hair diagnosis and perform a procedure that treats the hair deeply and revitalize the hair fiber. That way, your hair will be restored, and you will still receive personalized indications of care and products to maintain the health of your hair at home.
Are There Split Ends?
In this case, unfortunately, there is no repair. The only solution is to use scissors!
