In the summer holidays, your hair gets no respite. What with the sun, sea salt, pool chlorine and even the sand, it is impossible for it to avoid external damage. Your goal? To pamper your locks more than ever by avoiding these three errors.
#1 Forgetting to apply a UV protection solar hair treatment
You would never think to expose your body to the sun without applying sun cream. However, you should know the sun can damage your hair just as much as your skin. When over-exposed, the UV rays can weaken and dry out the hair fibres. As a result, your hair becomes dull, brittle and porous. This catastrophe can be avoided by applying a solar UV protection hair treatment such as Jean Louis David’s Sun Therapy multi-purpose leave-in gel. Hydrated and better protected, your hair will thank you for using this product.
#2 Not rinsing your hair out after a swim
Whether at the beach or a pool, each swim is a real ordeal for your hair. Its worst enemies are sand, sea salt and chlorine. Ultra-abrasive, this nightmare trio lifts the hair’s cuticles allowing the keratin to escape. The hair then feels rough and is impossible to detangle. A top tip: take a shower after every dip to rid your hair of any undesirable residue.
#3 Not using hair masks
As you will know, in summer your hair is put through the mill. Drier, more brittle and prone to knots, your hair is in need of a real hydration boost. During this period, hair masks are therefore more essential than ever. Opt for those with an ultra-nourishing and regenerative formula to rebuild the hair fibres.
