1. Use a High Quality Conditioner
Avoid washing your hair everyday. Shampooing dries hair out and removes the natural oils from your scalp. To help keep your hair moisturized and prevent dryness and damage use a high quality conditioner. Garbo’s has some great options including this one from Aquage.
2. Add Oil to Your Hair if Using Heat
Heat dries out your hair and causes frizz. If you’re using a blow dryer or curling iron to style your hair, apply an oil to help reduce split ends and strengthen your roots. This product and this product are two great options you can buy in store or online.
3. Hair Mask
Incorporating a hair mask into your routine is a great way to help keep your hair healthy during the summer. A hair mask will help keep your hair looking shiny, soft and less frizzy. A mask is also great for your scalp and for strengthening your hair. This one from our own line and this one from Moroccon Oil are two great options
4. Color-Treated hair products
Color-treated hair and summer elements do not mix well! If you have color treated hair, protect it from direct sun when possible. Use products specifically created for color treated hair to protect your hair and its color. This color safe shampoo and conditioner from Pulp Riot are two great choices.
