    7 Ways to Undo Summer Hair Damage

    Hair Damage Repair for Stressed Out Summer Hair

    Now that summer is indeed coming to an end and we approach the upcoming change in seasons, it is time to take back your hair and the hair damage that has occurred over the summer months. All those beautiful fall hair colors aren’t going to look good if your hair is dried out and is damaged to start with. Don’t stress though, the fix is an easy one in the form of moisture and protein reconditioners. I don’t think there is one of you that hasn’t become familiar with a deep conditioner at least one time in your life.

    These intense moisturizing treatments, however, aren’t always the single best answer for dry, hair damage. The problem lies within the hair itself. Think of hair as a bucket. When your hair becomes damaged, either by the sun or from exposure to chemicals (i.e..: color, highlights, and perms) that bucket starts to get riddled with holes. These holes don’t allow the bucket to hold water. The more water you put into the bucket the more water that flows out through the damaged holes. The obvious answer to this is to plug the holes. This is where protein comes into play. It is protein that will fill the holes in the hair/bucket so when you deep condition, the water will stay in the hair.


    Ok, ok, I know some heads are spinning right now, but it really is quite easy. The finer your hair, the more protein, it needs and conversely, the coarser your hair, the more moisture it needs. All of you with fine hair, should be using a protein treatment like, Redken’s Cat Treatment, or Grund’s Tiger Protein Treatment, which is my personal favorite. Use a protein treatment at least twice, for every one time you do a deep conditioning treatment.

    Now for all those with that thick, luxurious hair, you still need to use a protein treatment first (remember you have to plug up those holes in the bucket!) Next, use a deep conditioner like Redken’s Real Control Intense Renewal Mask. Now remember that you won’t need to use that protein treatment for at least the next three times you deep condition. By eating protein, it can make your hair strands grow longer and stronger. If you would like this benefit then you may want to try these protein bars to transform your hair.

    Doing these two simple reconditioning steps, will make your hair shiny and healthy by helping to erase that summertime hair damage.

    Heat Cap uses steam to set hairstyle

    To make your treatments even more effective, simply cover your hair with a plastic cap and apply heat from your hair dryer for 5 to 10 minutes. If you don’t have a plastic cap, go to the kitchen and grab some plastic wrap or better yet, just use that plastic bag you have from your recent trip to the grocery store.
