SUMMER HAIR REHAB

Summer is finally behind us. And our hair needs some much-needed rehab. Exposure to the blazing sun, long dips in salt water and chlorinated water, sweat, and humidity need I say more. The Summer months literally wreak havoc on our hair and even though we might realize it subconsciously, do we do enough, for a hair rehab. While we are prompt enough to change our skin care and makeup products, as the weather changes from hot to cold, we often do not give as much attention to our hair care.
I have dry, frizzy and textured hair, which is colored. And I was heavily traveling in Summer to hotter climes. Needless to say, my hair was in need of  R&R. So we caught up with my hair stylist, Amanda Pogue, of Studio A Salon, Overland Park, Kansas, for my Summer Hair Rehab. Amanda has been taking care of my hair for the last 9 years, and is the best, to say the least. She always starts a consultation with the client, over their vision, and then she advises on what can be done. This consultation is key. Amanda has been providing customized hair care for the last 14 years. She enjoys making people feel beautiful. Her passion for the beauty industry, her love for hair art and her ability at being a great listener, has her clients coming back.

Now let's hear it from Amanda on all things Summer Hair Rehab: 
Hair is usually lacking strength and moisture after months spent in the sun and wind. If a lot of time was spent in the pools, a Clarifying Shampoo is a great first step to remove the chlorine residue.

If you have not lived the pool life, switching to a healing/repair shampoo, like L'anaza Healing Strength Shampoo and Conditioner will help repair the straw-like ends of your hair and make it stronger.

As the hair has undergone a few months of torture with the elements, a deep conditioner used once a week, takes you further along the road of hair rehab. The deep conditioner can be used for 10 minutes, which will help soften and repair the "traumatized hair." L'anza Trauma Treatment is an example of this category of products, has UV protectants and heat protectants built-in so you can also use it daily as a leave-in conditioner. You can find a deep conditioner which suits your hair and your pocket.

Having parched Summer hair not only looks dry, but it can also affect the way in which your hair takes hair color. It is best to do this repair regimen, prior to hair coloring as well as getting a trim ahead of time.

Hoping it will help you to rehab your Summer damaged hair and embrace Fall in a healthier way!
