Summer is in full swing and whether you’re off to somewhere hot and sunny or not, having a nice selection of hair care products is a must. Too much sun can really damage and dry out your hair and that’s why I’ve created a little list of products that will help to keep your hair soft and shiny throughout the whole summer season.
I talked about Alchemy Oils in one of my other posts, but this time I want to talk about their other hair oil – Amla. Amla from the Indian Gooseberry is a hair tonic, which strengthens the hair and scalp. It helps to treat dry and itchy scalp, as well as condition the hair. The addition of Coconut, Avocado, and Argan Oils provides additional protection for your scalp and hair. You can use it as a hair treatment, which you leave on for at least 30 minutes before washing your hair or you can put it on damp hair just through the ends right before your blow-dry. The little travel version of it is perfect for taking it along for summer holidays.
During summer time – and throughout the whole year as well – you need a gentle shampoo that is not going to strip your hair, but at the same time will get rid of all the oil and dirt. During the hot season scalp can get really sweaty and oily, so it is important to wash it more often than during the colder months. This shampoo contains multitude of fantastic ingredients to protect your hair and make it super shiny. Honey helps it stay hydrated, while moringa seed extract helps to improve the appearance of your hair, making it more shiny and healthy-looking. This shampoo also won the Beauty Bible Award for best shampoo. I can definitely say that it’s very well-deserved, it’s a summer hair must-have product!
While hair masks are great for treating dry hair, they can also weigh hair down and make it look greasy fast especially in a hot weather. That’s why lightweight conditioners are great for this time of year. They nourish and soften your hair, without adding too much weight to it. This conditioner in particular is ideal for frequent use. It contains protein rich Keracyn from artichoke, which actually protects your hair from sun damage, as well as Coconut and Camellia Oils, which moisturise your hair and give it that gorgeous shine. It’s perfect for all hair types, especially dry and colour treated ones.
This product here is a true gem. It works as a leave-in conditioner and also protects your hair from heat damage. If your hair is very dry, especially at the ends, you can use it after your blow-dry as well to smooth out any dry, frizzy pieces. Rich in nourishing oils like Carrot Seed Oil and Olive Oil, this product will quickly become a staple in your hair routine. The more you use it, the better your hair is going to look. I tried it years ago and it made such a difference in the appearance of my hair adding amazing shine and softness to it.
