‘Tis the season for crunchy leaves and cooler weather. As summer heat dries off and leaves us with a taste of the warmest memories (read: beach waves, sunny days and sun-kissed tans), we’re left to deal with the post-summer effects of sun, salt water, moist air, and chlorine. A ‘lethal’ combination of elements that can take a toll on our tresses. It’s not uncommon for hair to be frizzy, brittle, brassy or dry after prolonged sun exposure, but there are effective ways to combat the damage.
Don’t let your hair become a mess just because you got a little over-excited about that summer style which seemed like such a good idea at the time. It’s never too late to start taking good care of your precious locks, so why not begin today?
Moisturize, hydrate, nourish, repeat
This is a no-brainer. However, we cannot stress it enough: the best way to repair and replenish summer damaged hair is to moisturize it properly. There are some ways and products available to help you achieve this. One of the most recommended methods of restoring dry hair is by applying intense hydrating masks on a regular basis (or at least until you’ve managed to restore your locks to their initial state). Opt for a reconstructive mask that is appropriate for your hair type and follow the instructions accordingly to get the best results.
Look for key ingredients and oil-rich products
You can also add powerful moisturizing ingredients to your daily haircare routine, by choosing products that contain unique properties and are easy to absorb. One such ingredient is the Brazilian-Amazonian olive oil, also known as the patawa. Found in the tropical rainforests of South America, the patawa is a palm tree that produces fruits rich in high-quality oil. Saturated in Omega-9 and fatty acids, this ingredient strengthens the internal structure of the hair fiber and leaves your hair feeling replenished and silky soft. Furthermore, by using products that contain this powerful moisturizing agent, you’ll also help restore damaged ends, smooth frizz and maintain scalp health.
New season, new look
Just because summer is over, doesn’t mean you can’t try a new hairstyle to revive your look. If that summertime hairdo is done and over it, you can add new life to your tresses by paying a visit to your stylist. Apart from suggesting different haircuts and products, they can also use extensions to make up for those lost locks. Celebrities do this all the time, and you don’t even know it. Why? Because these extensions are made to look undetectable. Sort out the best remy human hair online and opt for hairstyles that compliment your look. Whether it is the body wave Brazilian hair or straight Brazilian hair, these bundles will completely transform your appearance. For best results, make sure you shampoo, brush and style your extensions with specifically-designed products.
Handle with care
Last but surely not least, remember to treat your hair to a well-deserved pampering session every once in a while. Sun-exposed damaged hair may be difficult to comb out and can lead to split ends. Be sure to use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your locks and avoid using curling irons or straighteners as much as possible. Rinse your hair with cold water after each shower to help seal the cuticles and smooth it out.
Breakaway from summer damage by keeping up with these tips, all season long. And remember, if you want to get the best results for your treatment, you need to be persistent.
