How to Repair Damaged Hair


Repair Your Hair

Summer may be a distant memory, but your hair may be a harsh reminder of the time it spent unprotected in the sun. Most people understand the importance of slicking on an SPF at their favorite tanning spots, but it’s just as important to protect your locks from the elements. If you’ve neglected your hair, there’s no need to pull a Britney and shave it all off! There are plenty of ways to treat, protect and prevent the damaging effects of the sun, chlorine and salt water that have stripped your hair of its once luminous glow.

Problem: Sun Damage
Fix: Protect with SPF

Select a hydrating shampoo like natural hair wash with sea kelp. Many shampoos contain harsh detergents that can strip the hair follicles and cause them to be more prone to breakage. Look for a finishing spray that contains SPF and apply directly over your styling products to nourish and protect your hair anytime you’ll be outside in the scorching sun.

Problem: Chlorine Damage
Fix: Hydrate while you swim

For the swimmers out there, celebrity hair stylist Laurence Roberts recommends working a thick conditioner through your hair and keeping it in a neat bun underneath your swim cap. Select a hydrating conditioner like our natural hair hydrator with orchid flower. “While swimming, your body builds up heat and activates the conditioner, working as a heat wrap for your hair and scalp,” says Roberts. After your swim, rinse with cool water to flatten out the hair cuticles and allow light to reflect for a movie star shine.

Problem:
Salt Water
Fix: Nourish with natural oils

Before you head to the beach, apply conditioner or a bit of olive oil to the outer layers of your hair and wrap it up into a pony tail. This will help prevent salt from seeping into your hair, which can be very drying. When your hair is wet it is important to use a wide toothed comb or a rubber paddle brush instead of a bristle tip brush because this helps prevent breakage. And of course, always start from the bottom and work your way up.
