5 Tips for Post-Summer Hair Repair
This is the time of year when our guests come into the salon in desperate need of some post-summer hair repair. While we have a few things to say about recovering from summer as a whole, we’re talking strictly hair right now. If your hair has been damaged by sun, salt, chlorine and countless dates with your hair straightener and you’re looking to reverse this damage, read on.
1: START WITH THE SCALP
Soothe dry, itchy, red scalp with a gentle exfoliant. Aveda’s Pramasana Scalp Care line cleanses and exfoliates to help balance sebum levels and protect the scalp from environmental aggressors.
2: GET A TRIM
In this season of letting go, one thing you should say “bye-bye” to are dead ends and any extra weight on your hair that you want to get rid of. Start your season off fresh with a small trim or go all the way with a big chop! Trust us, you’ll love how you feel.
3: GLOSS TREATMENT
Shiny hair is always the best accessory to any look. Paired with a fresh haircut, a bit of shine is going to make your hair look and feel the healthiest it’s ever been. Add a glossing treatment or botanical treatment to your next haircut service and walk out feeling like a brand new person.
4: WEAR A MASQUE
We love conditioner, but when you need to give your hair a little extra love, reach for a hair masque. Aveda has a hair masque for practically every hair need. Our faves? Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Hair Treatment and Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque.
5: FIX SPLIT ENDS
No matter if you wear your hair straight or wavy, split ends can make your hair appear dull and lackluster. In addition to getting a trim to cut off dead ends, we recommend using a product that’s specifically geared toward mending and preventing split ends—try Damage Remedy Split End Repair.
