What can I do to fix my dry, summer-scorched hair?
New maxi dress? Check! Fake tan applied? Check! Frozen cocktails ready? YES!!! We just love what summer brings, but what we’re not so crazy about is sun-scorched, dry, frizzy hair. Uh huh…You’ve noticed too! It’s not too late to get gorgeous holiday hair. We have the best products to keep your hair looking hot but not bothered through the rest of summer.
Prepare: UV rays have a list of unwanted side effects – split ends, colour fade, breakage so always protect your hair like you do your skin. Try Argan Oil by BaBylissPRO Shampoo and Conditioner which contains UV filters to protect hair against sun damage, moisturises and prevents colour from fading or turning brassy.
Safeguard: Chlorine and salt have a drying, dulling effect on your hair. To protect and restore moisture just after you’ve been in the ocean or swimming pool, apply the Macadamia Natural Oil Luxurious Oil Spray. Just spritz and go!
Fake It: You love the look of sea-salt infused hair but a daily trip to the beach is out of the question. Instead try using a waver to add unstructured texture to your hair at home. We’re loving the BaBylissPRO Jumbo Ceramic Triple Barrel Waver Curling Iron which re-creates an “I’ve just come straight from Bondi beach” look in minutes! To see the result check out our ‘BaByliss PRO Jumbo Triple Barrel Curling Iron: The Review and the Result‘ post.
Pack Correctly: Wearing your hair wet in a ponytail or top knot can cause breakage. If you are going to pull your hair back post swim opt for silicon or material covered hair elastics with no metal parts which are far gentler on hair and are also easier to remove. Our pick: Scunci’s No Damage Satin Elastics which are available in a variety of colours.
Detox: Whether it’s the ocean, UV rays, heat styling or environmental factors such as smoke and pollution, all these factors can have a major effect on hair causing it to look dull and dry. So to keep hair looking healthy and to remove any residues and build-up give your hair a ‘detox’ once every couple of weeks by using a clarifying shampoo such as DAX’s Remove Shampoo. The trick to this one is that you apply it before you wet your hair. Weird we know, but it certainly works wonders!!
Post Holiday: Make sure you carry on the moisture baths long after summer ends. Once a week coat hair in a deep restorative conditioner or intensive treatment and leave on for five to ten minutes. We love Inecto’s Pure Coconut Oil Moisture Miracle Hair Repair Treatment which instantly nourishes dry and damaged hair, plus the lushious coconut fragrance will bring back 101 ahh-mazing summer holiday memories.
