Spending the summertime in the pool or at the beach can wreak havoc on your luscious locks. If you notice your mane is brittle, tangled and dull, it may need some TLC to repair sun and salt water damage.
Tips on restoring softness and shine:
Get a trim. Regular trims (every 4-6 weeks) keep hair looking fresh by removing split and dead ends.
Deep cleanse. Remove residue and build up with a clarifying shampoo. Use with caution as it can be drying and/or damaging to color treated hair. Research the product.
Invest in a professional hair mask. Or make your own. Either way, the treatment should be done at least once per week and should infuse the hair with moisture. The sun and salt has probably dried out your hair causing it to tangle and break.
Use a leave in conditioner. A leave in conditioner will assist in restoring moisture quicker.
Let hair air dry. The heat will further damage hair so if you must use it, try a lower setting heat or cool air.
