You spent 2 weeks on the beaches of Bali. Did a tour of Europe’s best and worst hostels. Swam with dolphins. Or … maybe you’ve just been flat ironing your hair every day this summer.
Now your mane is frazzled and you want to do something about it. Short of shaving your head, what are your options? It may be time to re-evaluate your styling choices. Heat styling tools and texture sprays can look great in the short term, but there may be a trade off with the condition of your hair. Let’s look at the problem in detail and see what solutions are available.
Dry hair and a roughed-up cuticle requires an injection of moisture to restore it back to a healthy level of suppleness and softness. Restoring moisture will also help the cuticle lay more smoothly and become more tangle resistant. If you can, an in-salon treatment with your stylist is the best way to go. An at home mask is the next best thing, but buy one from your stylist so that you know you’re getting one that works.
Investing in a quality shampoo and conditioner that will cleanse, nourish and strengthen your hair is important. A good product known as a ‘split end mender’ is specifically designed to moisturise, repair and prevent split ends, the perfect remedy to bring your locks back to life. Argan oil is rich in Vitamin E and includes a UV filter that works by eliminating heat damage from the hair also. Distribute evenly through damp hair for best results for silky, salon worthy tresses.
When all else fails book yourself an appointment to get your tresses professionally snipped. Take off as much as you can stand or, if you’re up for it, try a brand new style altogether. We love to have fun and experiment with our hair, and you can always shake things up with the wide range of hair extensions we have available here at Medusa.
