First Aid for Damaged Summer Hair
By glossyblonde on August 07, 2012
I love to be outdoors in the summer, whether it's at the beach, picnicking at a local park, or just hanging around outside in the backyard grilling. Sunshine always puts me in a great mood, and I love to soak up that Vitamin D.
However, the sun's rays can be super drying and damaging to the hair. The salt water of the ocean and chlorine in pools can also wreak havoc on our strands, sucking out moisture and leaving hair brittle.
Using a hair mask regularly can help us get our hair back into tip top condition. For most of us, a weekly ritual is best, but the most damaged hair could benefit from using a mask twice a week.
Alterna Bamboo UV+ Color Protection Rehab Deep Hydration Masque is the newest of the above. Since I received the serum in my July Birchbox (and loved it) I had to try out the mask. This deep conditioner leaves hair super smooth with glimmering shine. Not only that, but it also protects hair from the drying effects of the sun, and even protects color-treated hair from fading.
I've been using Bumble and Bumble Deeep Masque on and off for over 10 years now. It's been one of my go-to masks after I get my hair highlighted, to help correct the damage from the bleach. It's also fabulous after the beach for the same reason. It instantly repairs the roughed-up cuticle from damaging sea salt and other elements and smooths and softens the hair.
Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment Plus is a super thick, restructuring mask that is truly intensive....
