SUMMER HAIR STRESS, SOLVED !
Beat those summer hair woes with the help of Butterfly Studio Salon Experts, Kattia Solano and Jennifer Penny!
PROBLEM: DRY AND LIMP FROM CHLORINE/SALTWATER
SOLUTION: Saturate your hair in a conditioner or oil before heading into the water. Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil ($48; Sephora.com) is loaded with Vitamin E and essential fatty acids to condition, nourish, and coat the hair without weighing it down.
For chlorine, wet your hair with fresh water before jumping in so your hair doesn't soak up as much of the pool water and rinse RIGHT after!
- Use Vitamin C (specifically ascorbic acid) because it neutralizes chlorine. There are some sprays, such as Jasmine Night Conditioning Spray ($63; TheOrganicPharmacy.com) that have vitamin C in them to specifically remove the residue left on hair by pool water.
PROBLEM: SCALP BUILDUP FROM SWEAT
- Make a DIY spritzer: M ix a half cup of sparkling water, a half cup of apple cider vinegar, and the juice from a quarter of a lemon into a spray bottle and apply to dry hair from roots to ends until the hair is fully saturated. Massage the mixture into your scalp for a few minutes as it absorbs, then rinse well!
- Follow up with a clarifying shampoo and your favorite hair mask. Philip B Anti- Flake Relief Shampoo ($39; PhilipB.com) provides instant relief and Katira Hair Masque ($44;PhilipB.com) deep treats while fighting humidity.
PROBLEM: FADED COLOR FROM UV RAYS
- Use products with UV protection built right in and to protect your color from fading due to sunshine, whip up a homemade concoction by diluting your favorite lotion or sunscreen with a little water in a spray bottle and spritzing your strands. Try Organic Pharmacy Cellular Protection Sun Screen ($69; TheOrganicPharmacy.com) for UVA and UVB protection!
