Must-Haves For Healthy, Vibrant Hair
Over-exposure to the strong summer sun, chlorine dips in the pool, and salty ocean waves can leave your hair dry, dull, and thirsty for the essential nutrients it needs to shine to its fullest potential. While you may think you¹ll be too busy having fun in the sun to concern yourself with hair care and maintenance, there are simple tips, tricks, and products you can use that will make it feel almost effortless.
Bi-lingual NYC Hair Stylist, Lucy Garcia Planck, from Salon Bergdorf Goodman offers her 5 ways, sprays, and must-haves for your healthiest hair that is as vibrant as you are during the summer months:
Pool protection should be a top priority for frequent swimmers. Chlorine is a chemical, so as you could imagine, it is not a friend to your hair and has serious dehydrating effects. Try Philip Kingsley Swimcap Cream after swimming or other water activities to safeguard against breakage and color fading with enhanced UV protection.
Get a pre-season trim
It’s a great idea to get a trim to start out the summer. Sun rays will do extra damage to hair ends that are already dead and dry- so start the season off fresh to minimize damage and follow up with another trim six-eight weeks later.
Start a hair vitamin regimen
Beautiful, healthy hair starts from the inside, out. Vitafusion Gorgeous Hair Skin & Nails is a daily multivitamin in delicious gummy form that provides biotin, antioxidant vitamins C & E, and 12 key nutrients to support luxurious hair.
Get down with an anti-frizz
We all know the frustration of styling your hair to perfection after much time and energy, only to step outside and watch your hair defy all of your efforts- not to mention the wasted damage inflicted from using hot tools. Rusk Anti-Frizz Spray is a lightweight spray that creates a barrier between humid air and your hair and adds volume to your style.
Don’t wash every day
While it¹s tempting to wash your hair every hot summer day- this habit will strip your hair of essential oils leaving it dry and brittle. Figure out a washing routine that works best for you and your hair, whether it¹s every other day or once every three days. Try a dry-shampoo hair refresh for non-wash days like Batiste Dry Shampoo.
