Repairing your hair after summer

Réparer ses cheveux après l’été

If summer is good for our morale, it is much less so for our hair. Sand, sun, sea water, chlorine, humidity… Several factors damage and dry out our hair. Here are some tips for going from horsehair mane to silky mermaid hair.

Good care

Firstly, you have to take the time to choose treatments that respect the hair fiber and the scalp. We favor products that do not contain irritating ingredients such as silicones, sulfates, phthalates, phenoxyethanol or artificial colors, for example.

Tip: nothing better than a vegetable oil treatment before shampooing to repair dry, damaged and brittle hair. How do we go about it? Coat the moistened lengths with your favorite oil (argan, coconut, olive, etc.) which you leave to penetrate for at least 1 hour before shampooing.

Clean gently

On vacation, we bathe every day and that leads us to wash our hair every time we shower. At the start of the school year, you need to find the right frequency: shampoo 2 to 3 times a week.

Tip: apply shampoo only to the top of the head and not to the lengths. As they do not produce sebum, the lengths are not greasy and will be washed when rinsing the shampoo.

Feed intensely

Hair is dehydrated at the end of summer. To restore suppleness and strength, use a repairing mask or a nourishing conditioner that you leave on for at least 10 minutes after shampooing. This treatment helps repair and nourish the hair in depth.

Tip: for even more shine, finish the rinse with a jet of cold water to reactivate the blood circulation of the scalp and tighten the hair scale. You can also add a dab of leave-in treatment to provide even more hydration.

Adios split ends

Many of us come back tanned from vacation… with split ends. Normal! This is often where the hair is the most dry and damaged. Refreshing your cut by 2 to 5 cm in length will do the greatest good for your hair, in addition to preventing split ends from growing.

Heat resolution

Dry hair breaks easily, so avoid heating tools. We recommend drying in the open air, but if you absolutely must use a dryer, you will stick to these 2 commandments:

1 - On my towel-dried hair, I will apply a heat-protective treatment.

2 - When cold air blows, I will dry up. Increase the temperature only at the very end of drying to make styling easier.
