Summer Hair Hack For Treating Dry, Damaged Hair

Summer Hair Hack For Treating Dry, Damaged Hair

BECAUSE WHY WASTE TIME WHEN you can be drinking Daiquiris, while also DEEP CONDITIONING YOUR HAIR ?

 

To get the ultimate benefits of any hair treatment, it is best to leave it in for as long as possible.  Although, finding time to pamper those locks with a deep conditioning treatment (for anything longer than four minutes) is becoming a luxury of the past!

Here is how you can deeply condition your hair but also turn it into a sleek day or evening look and no one but you will know! (Genius hair hack, right?)
 

 

START WITH A REALLY GOOD MASK

Apply a conditioning treatment (we used Kérastase Reflection Masque Chrome Riche on Olivia) to pre-shampooed towel-dried hair from just off the roots to ends and comb through.

Stylist's Tip : Kérastase Masque is perfect for summer as the chrome riche has built-in antioxidant ingredients that fight environmental damage and protects hair colour from fading plus there's the added bonus of a UV protector if you’re going to be out and about in the sun.

 

PART AND PULL BACK

The second step is to middle part and pull it back into a low sleek pony using a fastened hair tie (or hair bungee).

Another styling tip : Hair bungees they are incredible and fail-proof especially if your hair is thick. Hook it onto your hair and wrap your hair around and secure it by hooking the hair bungee hair tie back in hair. To achieve a smooth result, I use a natural bristle brush. I love my Kevin Murphy Smoothing Brush.

 

TWIST, TWIST, TWIST...

Step three is to take two sections of hair, brush to smooth and wrap around each other. Secure with a plastic clear tie if you are blonde or black/brown tie if you are a brunette.

 

SPRITZ !

The final step—and the most important one—is to finish off by using supreme control hairspray for hold. The Pureology Colour Stylist hair spray that we used is like a treatment in itself with a blend of antioxidants, UV protection, and an anti-fade colour system. Win Win!

 

Next time I might try a lip mask while driving to work /-)
