Keep hair healthy, strong, and looking beautiful—all season long.
Hair is our crowning glory but due to factors like stress, pollution, improper care, etc, it can be damaged easily. Every once in awhile everyone faces hair problems. Even change in seasons affect our hair in adverse ways.
Think how dirty your face is by the end of the day. You take your hair to the same places, so it gets just as dirty. Plus, your hair follicles produce sebum (oil) as your scalp perspires. So wash your hair every day! It’s the single most effective way to make your hair and scalp healthier.
Use the heat of the summer to your hair’s advantage! While you’re at the beach or poolside, treat your tresses to a deep-conditioning mask such as Dove Therapy Intense Damage Repair Conditioner. Then comb your hair into a bun and let the product go to work while you lounge. This trick can protect your hair from salt or chlorinated water and give you an extra boost of softness and shine.
Use a wide-tooth wooden base comb or a tortoise shell comb. Never go for rubber or iron combs. Make sure the ends of the comb are not pointed. Start combing the hair carefully from the ends in a downward direction only. Comb your hair only when dry. Hair is weakest when it is wet.
Eat a healthy diet. Studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids—found in foods such as salmon, spinach, and omega-3-rich eggs—can keep your hair strong and looking healthy and shiny!”
Summer is just fraught with hair danger, and prevention is key. When you’re at the beach, slick your dry hair back with conditioner. It acts as a barrier to sunlight, salt water, and chlorine. If you want summer highlights, skip certain strands. They will lighten up in the sun to give you fabulous, natural-looking highlights.
Nix the hair spray—it’s extremely drying. Common ingredients like alcohol and ethanol can be very damaging to your hair because they dry it out, causing it to snap or break very easily. If you must use hair spray, consider using one that contains natural ingredients and conditioners, as they are more conditioning and neutralizing.
