Reconciling your hair with summer: mission possible!

This summer, make a vow to prevent your hair from turning to straw! Just follow this game plan and you’ll be able to keep your promise!

GOALS: PROTECT AND MOISTURIZE

Tanning, dips in the pool, swimming in the ocean… what could be better? Nothing, you might say, but your hair begs to differ! UV rays, chlorine and salt water form a cocktail that dries keratin fibres and increases their porosity, making your hair dull, dry and brittle.

To avoid disaster, keep these two goals in mind: prevention and treatment.

An essential question to ask yourself before selecting your team: what’s your hair type? Greasy or dry? Straight, wiry or frizzy? Find the right team-playing products and you’ll be on track to beautiful, healthy-looking hair.

GEAR UP

As the saying goes, prevention is always better than cure. So if you’re going out for a long picnic, a bike ride or a day at the beach, equip yourself accordingly!

  • Some rinse-free masks nourish your hair and make it more resistant to external aggressors. Don’t hesitate to use one the moment you jump out of bed if you know you have fragile hair.
  • If you want even more protection from UV rays, cover your hair with a hat, a scarf or a turban and be right on-trend at the same time!

Hair that’s been coloured (or discoloured!) is more vulnerable to external aggressors than natural hair. To avoid affecting the pigmentation, don’t wash your hair before colouring it. It’s also good to keep products handy that will prevent the colour from losing its lustre over time.

Wash with care

Use the right shampoo. Because you wash your hair more often in the summer, it’s best to use a mild product. Choose one that’s free of aggressive detergents and contains a moisturizing formula suitable for your hair type. If it has an SPF, even better!

On those days when you don’t wash your hair, you can still rinse it with clean water to freshen  it up and remove accumulated impurities.

Use a conditioner to prolong the thirst-quenching and restorative properties of your conditioning shampoo.

Give your hair a nourishing boost from time to time. It’s particularly important if you spend a lot of time in the sun every day. Once or twice a week, apply a mask, a hair oil or an anti-heat treatment throughout the length of your hair, including the tips. Allow the treatment to work for at least 10 minutes before rinsing.

Take advantage of night

If your hair overdosed on UV rays or chlorine or it’s crying out for help despite all your efforts, use an intensive night treatment to strengthen and soften the keratin fibres. Try a mask rich in vegetable oils or a dry oil and spread it throughout your hair before bedtime. (remember to wrap your hair in a towel or to cover your pillowcase to avoid stains). All you have to do in the morning is rinse!

WHAT ABOUT HAIR COLOURING?!

When exposed to the harsh summer elements, the keratin scales that make up our hair fibres tend to lift and separate, making them more vulnerable to UV rays. What’s more, the pigment, which acts as a kind of protective layer, slowly fades away. Not surprisingly, that’s bad news for your hair colour, which can quickly become bland looking or simply change colour altogether…

The solution? Make sure you use a shampoo and conditioner specially designed for coloured hair at least twice a week. These pigment-enriched products help restore radiance, preserving the vibrancy of your hair colour. For added protection, use a keratin repair treatment from time to time to help restore the richness of your colour by reinforcing and repairing the "holes" in the keratin scales.
