Healthy hair tips

Hair all dried out from being in the sun too long? Here's how to maintain your gorgeous tresses.

If you spend a lot of time in the sun during the summer, washing your hair every day may be beneficial. However, when the weather starts to turn cool and you aren’t out in the elements as much, washing your hair too much can strip its natural oils, leaving your hair looking dull and lifeless.

If you have oily hair, wash your hair every two to three days. For women with dry hair, shampooing every three to four days will likely be enough to keep your hair clean.

Go For a Clarifying Treatment

A clarifying treatment from a salon is one of the best things you can do for your hair after the summer season ends. Clarifying treatments help to get rid of all of the gunk like chlorine deposits and built-up hair products in your hair out, leaving you with completely clean, all-natural hair.

If you don’t want to go to a salon for a clarifying treatment, there are home treatments and kits that can help cleanse your hair as well.

Protein Treatment

Your hair loses a lot of its natural shine in the summer, especially if you spend a lot of time at the beach or by the swimming pool basking in the sun’s rays.

An all-natural topical protein treatment, which is actually brushed onto the strands of the hair and surface of the scalp, can help breathe new life into your hair and restore its natural lustre. That way you’ll have healthy hair that looks its best, even if you do decide to keep it under a warm hat all fall and winter.

Take Your Vitamins

Certain vitamins that you get from foods, including vitamin and B vitamins help to keep your hair healthy year round, but for many people, getting all of the vitamins that they need through foods can be difficult.

While taking a regular multivitamin can be beneficial, there are also specialty vitamins formulated specifically to keep your hair from breaking, having split-ends and looking like frizzy mess.

Vitamins formulated specifically for optimal hair health can also help increase the speed at which your hair grows, make your hair thicker and repair damage from years of color and chemical treatments.
