Is the Summer Sun making your hair feel "ehh"?

This time of year my hair is always feeling a little dry. My clients have also been asking how they can give their hair a little 'love'.

Our hair takes a beating in the summer, from UV rays to chlorine, it's crying for some extra moisture.

If you don't usually use a Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner you should definitely switch it up in the summer. If you already use moisturizing products use a more intensive one for the next couple of months.

My hair for example isn't naturally THIS blond. {Shocked? I didn't think so} I lighten it. Which of course dries it out a little. I already use Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner by Pureology so in the summer I switch to their Super Smooth.

There are other great ways to protect our hair.

Wear a hat! We already do this to protect our skin but it's also beneficial to our hair.

Another trick is to get your hair wet BEFORE you hop in the pool. Take it one step further by spraying a leave in conditioner in it as well.
Think of a sponge. Your hair is porous too. Fill it up with clean water and protect it with a conditioner to boot and there is less room for the drying-turns your hair green-chlorine water to get in.

I hope these tips and tricks help you! If you feel like your hair needs MORE LOVE than this we can do a Deep Conditioning treatment at the shop or consider the Chi Enviro Smoothing Treatment. I have LOVED it!
