After the summer hair often becomes dry, brittle and fragile.
Sun, sea and excessive heat can really take it's toll. This is an ideal moment to concentrate on restoring your hair to its former beauty.
Use a gentle, nourishing shampoo and deep conditioning treatment to soften and replenish your hair. Products containing
keratin are extremely efficient although this type of product is often expensive.
Protect your hair from excessive heat by leaving it to dry naturally or lowering the temperature on your hair-dryer then apply a small amount of hair oil to the lengths and ends working it in thoroughly.
Avoid washing and drying too often, but when you do wash it leave the conditioning treatment on for a few hours. This will ensure maximum benefit.
The sun plays havoc with tinted hair. It permanently lightens the colour each time you stay in the sun. The first thing to avoid is exposing your hair to the sun. This can be done by either wearing a hat or sitting in the shade. Obviously it's impossible to keep your hair out of the sun all summer long, so eventually you'll find that your colour has altered and become a few shades lighter.
An easy way to tone down a sun lightened colour is to have a few darker streaks or lowlights put through your hair in your base colour. If you're grey , select a basic shade a few shades darker than the sun-lightened one. Usually only a few streaks are needed but it makes an enormous difference to the hair, naturalizing the effect. Streaks should be concentrated on the top sections and a few around the face. The underneath is only an issue if you wear your hair up, in which case a few streaks around the hairline are also needed.
