If you are about to start your summer vacation, don't forget to take care of your hair during and afterwards.
Even if our hair cannot get sunburned, sun protection is essential in the hot months. UV radiation not only fades artificial colour pigments but also your natural hair colour. Some of us are happy about a few highlights in summer, however, the UV radiation also weakens the keratin structure, which unfortunately makes the hair brittle.
Our hair offers natural sun protection for our heads! Hair is designed to prevent sun exposure from becoming too intense during outdoor activities and help stop us from getting heatstroke.
But there are also other factors that put our hair under stress during summer:
- Wind & weather
- Chlorinated water
- Braids or changing hairstyles
- Frequent washing & swimming
Preparations before the summer vacation: Less is more
Once the vacation is booked, you can start with the preparations! It is important to take care of your hair in advance and to moisturise it regularly. Treat yourself to an intensive overnight treatment twice a week, for example with our Gorgeous Hair Oil. This provides the hair with everything it needs to be strong and resistant. Avoid using a hairdryer and straightening iron. Let your hair air dry after washing and remove all unnecessary treatments and care products.
During your vacation: watch out for the sun!
Put a toning moisturiser in your swim bag so you can spray your hair several times a day and moisturise it. Even if saltwater gives the hair a really great texture - which many of us love - you should always rinse chlorine and saltwater with tap water immediately after swimming, as the residues make the hair straw-like.
It is best to wear a hat during the hottest hours of the day to protect your mane or use our Sunshine Beauty Oil for your hair. In any case, don't forget to care for your scalp! If you have burned your head, you can also massage in Gorgeous Hair Oil overnight to soothe your scalp.
Intensive care after summer vacation
After a few hot days or weeks, the hair feels brittle, dry, and has often lost its shine. The Gorgeous Hair Oil helps to rebuild your mane after vacation and to supply it with the necessary moisture. These measures will save your Rapunzel braid:
- Hair mask: For dry ends & damaged hair, simply massage it in and leave it on for 10 minutes before washing. For very dry hair, you can leave the oil on overnight as an intensive care product!
- Leave-in care: After each wash, massage sparingly into the ends of towel-dried hair.
- For tense, itchy scalp or dandruff: before washing, massage the hair oil into the scalp and allow it to take effect for a few minutes.
With our beloved Gorgeous Hair Oil, your hair will keep its healthy shine all summer long and stay supple - your friends will be amazed how bright you return from your holiday!
