Whether it is from harsh rays of the sun or the salt water in the ocean, your hair tends to get dried out easily during the summer. Add on top of that the constant blowing drying, straightening, highlighting and other forms of hair “abuse,” your brittle locks could use some TLC.
When I came across this Fashionista, I was impressed with how shiny and lustrous her hair was. It was glossy, no frizz, and not a dead end in sight. Bravo! There are a wide variety of products out there to help you achieve your maximum shine factor. Skip your traditional condition once a week an opt for a deep conditioning or hot oil treatment to repair damaged strands. By hydrating the strands, the moisture brings life back into dull hair. Take it one step further by doing an at-home clear glaze. This glossing and conditioning treatment binds shine, recharges color and adds silky sophistication for that fresh-from-the-salon shine. Or if you are looking for a DIY approach, make an at-home mask yourself by combining the flesh of one ripe avocado, one tablespoon of honey, and two tablespoons of olive oil. Mix the ingredients together until creamy and apply to dry hair. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then rinse with a mild shampoo.
Summer is a great time to relax and reward yourself for all the hard work you do hitting the books during the year. Your hair enjoys some R&R as well. Be sure to treat it well and you might just be a shining example to all your friends.
