Your hair may be sunburned after summer. This means that your hair needs regeneration, which will help to get rid of the hay effect and avoid a haircut. What do I have to consider when caring for my hair after the summer?
Why is the hair weak after the summer?
Many factors can contribute to weakened hair after summer. These include weather conditions such as UV light, high temperatures and wind; water, such as salt in the sea and chlorinated water in a swimming pool; air conditioning, unhealthy diet and poor hair care
All the above mentioned factors lead to damage to the hair cuticle and even damage to keratin, the main building block of hair. This makes the hair brittle, frizzy, dry, dull and lacking in elasticity. This often also involves split ends, an oily scalp and even hair loss
How do I nourish my hair after summer?
The first step to improve the condition of your hair is a scalp exfoliation. This will prepare your scalp for the next hair care step. The scrubbing thoroughly cleanses the scalp and gets rid of dead skin and the rest of the cosmetics. This will make it easier for the skin to absorb other nutrients. Peeling helps to oxygenate the hair follicles and will also improve blood microcirculation
Hair oiling treatment will quickly and effectively get rid of defects in the hair shaft. Using vegetable oils strengthens our hair, supports its regeneration and also moisturizes and nourishes it. This way we provide them with all the necessary active substances such as unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins and nutrients. For the effects of oil you usually have to wait a bit, but certainly after a short time you will see a visible difference. After summer, you should reach for oils twice a week.
Washing with Gentle Shampoo
Washing your hair also counts as hair care. What shampoos you choose is crucial. Choose SLS-free products for washing your hair. You can enhance the effect of the shampoo by adding essential oils such as lemon, rosemary, ylang or sage. This will stimulate the roots and strengthen your hair
If your hair is particularly frizzy and dry, you can try using a conditioner. This will smooth and soften your hair and prevent static
Applying Masks Regularly
To keep your hair healthy, nourished and full of shine you should regularly apply a mask. There are rebuilding, moisturizing and regenerating hair masks available on the cosmetics market. It is worth reaching for masks, which in their composition contain vegetable oils, proteins, keratin and vitamins A and E. To enhance their effect,
wrap your hair in a turban or cap immediately after applying the product. This way, the nutrients are absorbed into the hair structure faster under the influence of heat
