When it comes to having fun in the sun, most of us won’t leave the house without being coated in sunscreen to protect our skin. But when it comes to our hair? We’ll subject it to the pool, salt, and sand without a hat or shield in sight. Don’t worry, we’re not about to say you shouldn’t hit the beach. Regardless of the damage summer can inflict on our hair, there’s always a way to get it back into soft, hydrated condition after the fact.
With a few tricks and the right products on hand (think: masks and leave-in sprays), you’ll be on your way to sleek and shiny hair in no time. In partnership with Joico, here’s a list of easy ways to rehab hair and get those locks back into prime condition.
Spritz on a Leave-in Strengthening Spray
Strengthening sprays can detangle hair even after they’ve been thrown up into wet messy buns. Luster Lock Multi-Perfector Spray by Joico has hydrating ingredients like manketti and argan oil that work together to detangle wet hair while also adding softness and shine. Use daily and your hair will be restored in no time.
Take a Break from Hot Tools
The last thing that damaged hair needs is heat. If you can’t completely break up with your hot tools, give your hair a rest by limiting usage to 1-2 times a week. This way you can still show off your go-to style on special days while minimizing damage the rest of the week.
Clean With a Clarifying Mask
Let’s be honest: blonde hair can get over-bleached and brassy from the sun in ways that brunettes will never understand. Thankfully, Joico’s new Blonde Life Brightening Mask was formulated specifically with blondes in mind.
The quick rinse treatment neutralizes trace minerals that cause discoloration and dullness and restores shine.
Switch to a Microfiber Hair Towel
Perhaps one of the simplest (read: lazy) ways to rehab your hair is by transitioning to a microfiber hair towel. This specific material helps restore wet damaged strands and tame flyaways. And, thanks to the fabric’s moisture-wicking abilities, your hair can dry in less than 30 minutes with absolutely no heat.
Give Yourself a Scalp Massage
Let’s be honest, a massage is always a good thing. And when it comes to your scalp, it boosts blood circulation and leads to healthy hair growth. Take a minute or two and knead your fingers into your scalp directly at your roots. The best part is that it can be used in conjunction with key products like strengthening sprays and clarifying masks to get your hair back in shape.
