The warm winds of summer, the salt in the air and the sunshine on your face. While this all sounds dreamy, too often the exact elements of the season that we love can take a toll on something that we invest a lot of time and care in…our hair.
Summer is well known for vacation travel and with travel comes a change to our normal hair routine. Some of the simple, often unnoticed, changes include washing your hair in different types of water, like hard or soft, swimming in lakes, and exposure to the ocean salt water and air. All of these items can cause havoc with the hair, not to mention the obvious, the good ole sun.
With fall on the horizon, it’s time to get your hair back in shape. First, when possible wear a ball cap or hat. It’s important to cover your hair from the sun as much as possible to prevent your color from fading and your hair from becoming overly dry.
Make sure to purchase a good clarifying shampoo to strip off salt water and lake residue. This will also help to get your hair back into shape from washing it in different types of water. Likewise, the product build-up from fun evenings out can also be removed by using a clarifying product.
Don’t forget to add a deep conditioner to your weekly routine as well. This will server to nourish the hair and replenish what its lost throughout the summer months. By taking the time to clarify, hydrate, and nurse your hair back to health it will begin to rejuvenate.
Follow some of these simple recommendations and, by the time the fall hits, your hair will be in good shape for the next new color, cut, or look that you may want. You can be certain that your color also will look more vibrant, richer, and shinier if you follow these simple steps. Especially, if you are darkening those tresses up a bit. Bring on the fall!
