Sun-damaged hair? Here's how to bring back your healthy hair after summer.
Sun, chlorine, salt: after going through all these challenges: your hair needs a real treatment plan.
Yes, because just like your skin, your hair also requires attention and nourishment during summer. If nourishment is lacking or if your hair is too exposed to the sun or other extreme external factors such as chlorine, the protective layer of the hair can be damaged. When your hair becomes dry, the hydrolipidic film deteriorates, causing your hair to lose its natural shine.
If your hair appears drier and duller after the summer, don't despair: there are several solutions to give your hair a healthier look. Here's how:
Dry hair after summer? Here's how to take care of it.
Summer is everyone’s favourite season. However, our hair is not particularly fond of it as we are! Autumn is the best time to restore your hair to its natural shine and to prepare it for the winter.
Here are some tips to apply immediately.
Choose a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner
The first step to take care of damaged hair is to create your new beauty routine. If your hair is very dry, choose a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner for dry and damaged hair.
Wash your hair carefully and rinse it for a minute with cold water to turn on your highlights. Rub your hair with a towel and use a wide-toothed comb to gently loosen the knots.
Nourish your hair with a mask
As we have said, the excess heat and stress to which the hair is subjected during summer, impact the health of the protective layer of the hair, the hydrolipidic film. The best way for your hair to keep growing is to nourish it deeply. A moisturizing mask is what it takes to penetrate the hair shaft and restore moisture. You can apply your mask before or after washing and keep it on for a few minutes before rinsing, giving it time to work. If you don't know which product to choose, you can make a 100% natural mask with honey and linseed oil.
Study a new haircut
When your hair is damaged, dry and brittle, trimming damaged ends can give your hair new life. Trust a hairstylist who will be able to advise you on the best cut to enhance your face.
Choose the right tools for styling
One way to protect your hair is to choose the right tools for your styling. Regarding this aspect, we at Elchim have developed a special line of tools: 8th Sense. The 8th Sense line is the first developed for all eight hair types, ideal for even the most fragile hair, damaged ones and even suitable for children. With our latest generation hair dryers you can:

Help your hair from the inside out
Choosing products made for damaged hair will help you nourish your hair from the outside. However, we also can help our hair heal from the inside, paying attention to what we eat. Drinking plenty of water and getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals will help improve the health of your hair. Make sure your diet includes plenty of fruits and vegetables to keep your daily vitamin intake high. If you are a lover of exotic flavors, avocado contains antioxidants and vitamins A, B6, D, E, iron and fatty amino acids, which strengthen the protective layer of the hair and help retain moisture. If all this is not enough, contact your doctor to evaluate the intake of supplements.
