Summer Hair SOSComments : 1 Posted in : Beauty, Product Reviews on by : Reema Tags: argan oil, beauty, dry hair, frizz, hair, hair care, moroccan oil
Anyone else having a long streak of bad hair days? The sunniest July in years has wreaked havoc on my hair and it is looking annoyingly dry, damaged, frizzy….you get the picture!
It is clearly time for a summer hair intervention and here is my rescue plan:
A regular shampoo and conditioner is simply not enough in the heat. Summer hair requires an extra level of TLC and this is where a deep conditioning hair mask comes in! I am a huge fan of MoroccanOil haircare products – they come at a price but smell gorgeous and the results are absolutely amazing.Treat your hair with MoroccanOil Restorative Mask – a weekly dose of argan oil vitamins and anti-oxidants will work wonders for hair that has been overly processed and excessively fried in the sunshine!!
If you prefer to go natural, then you don’t need to look beyond your kitchen for some home-made remedies to fight the frizz.
Avocados are not only delicious to eat but also one of the best solutions for unruly hair. Try mashing avocado with some yogurt or sour cream (dairy is extremely nourishing for the hair too). Massage into hair and leave on for 20 minutes and then rinse.
If you are feeling brave, you could also try a sticky but nourishing egg mask or a cold beer rinse for your hair. I’m not sure I would want to smell like beer all day though…
Serums & Hair Treatment Oils
There is a wide selection of hair serums and oils in the market but my all-time favourite is definitely the MoroccanOil Treatment Oil. The argan treatment oil can be applied to dry or damp hair and provides excellent protection from environmental and chemical damage. It is ULTRA light and leaves hair soft and smelling gorgeous all day long. Worth every penny.
One of my recent Glossybox posts also featured the Caudalie Divine Oil for Hair, Skin and Face. Key ingredients include a mix of oils such as grape, argan, hibiscus and sesame . The oil smells fantastic and does a superb job of keeping hair in check!
A long term solution is to eat the best foods for strong, healthy hair. Salmon, eggs, green vegetables and walnuts contain proteins and vitamins essential for the desired luscious locks. Eat the right foods and your hair will thank you for it soon enough.
Here’s hoping this plan produces quick results. If all else fails, I could always hide under the beach hat begging to be let out of the closet!
