Death to Dry Hair
Summer is officially over (insert sad face and tears at the thought of winter coming), which means hair is destine to become dry and frizzy but does that honestly have to be the case? To lock in moisture for the fall and upcoming winter and reduce breakage, let’s take a look at some key products and practices that can help.
STOP CLARIFYING!!! Often times clarifying shampoos and cleanses are recommended to help give your hair a boost and remove product build-up, and while it is okay to still use them once in a while we highly recommend not using them regularly. Instead, substitute them out for a hydrating/moisturizing shampoo/conditioner to replenish moisture loss.
Give it a five star treatment! So you pamper your face, feet and hands with masks, why not your hair?! Applying a mask 1-2x monthly during colder months is one of the best things you can do for your hair; and if you use heat tools regularly or chemicals (color, highlight, perm, blowout, etc) you should already be doing this. These were the locks you were given, treat them the best possible!
Use a leave-in protein spray on your hair to help prevent breakage before styling, to help seal the cuticle!
Is it time for a fresh cut or new style? Keeping your hair trimmed and healthy is very important because your ends experience the most heat and chemical stress, causing them to break and dry out easier.
Don’t let the cold weather get the best of you!
