I know, I always talk about face and body. The truth is, we shouldn’t forget about hair as well. Often, it is the first thing people notice. Whether your hair is long or strong, thick or very thin, hair striving with health is obvious at first sight. Because they often require specific care, I wrote down some advices on what not to skip during your usual beauty rituals.
Sun rays in summer have the same effect on the hair that they do on our skin on the body. If you were walking on the sun without head protection the whole season, UV radiation might have penetrated into the hair and break its structure from the root. But nothing’s lost! What can you do know to restore your hair’s structure?
The first step is to protect the hair with the correct treatment which will properly hydrate it. One hair consists of 10-15% water probably that was easily drained off in summer. Maybe you have noticed that your ends tend to dry faster than usual.
Here’s my first little tip: Wash your hair not once, but twice altogether. The first wash requires a bigger amount of shampoo. Massage your scalp thoroughly, but don’t rub your hair too harshly. This is the phase to wash of dirt and oiliness. You’ll see that round too only requires a little bit of shampoo to create a lot of foam. This is the part of actually washing your hair. Always rinse it off with lukewarm water and make sure there are no shampoo leftovers.
I know styling products are supposed to keep your perfect do in place, however, together with hot shower water, extreme weather changes and wind, these products can be the reason why your hair suffers. It is hard even on healthy hair, not to mention weak and damaged hair. Try to focus on prevention and protection. Use as little product as possible and if possible, pick the ones that are natural and hydrating.
Chlorine is known as a strong disinfection from impurities and bacteria. What they don’t say is it dissolves lipids too, which act as a natural protective layer giving the hair shine and moisture. If you were a big fan of swimming pool in summer or you still go swimming as your go to workout, be aware. Long-term exposure to chlorine can make your hair porous and rough.
It can also be a reason for some unwanted color change. Especially blonds and those with dyed blond hair should look out for this undesired side effect. The main helper is to wash your hair properly every time you enter a pool. Hair follicles are like sponges - the more water they absorb first, the less space for chlorine.
