How to prepare your hair for the arrival of summer?

The arrival of summer signifies the onset of beautiful weather, but it also brings about changes in the appearance of many people's hair. It's not uncommon to notice that our hair tends to become drier and more fragile during the summer. To avoid these inconveniences, we offer you 5 tips to prepare your hair before the arrival of summer.

Topics:

1. Delivering lipids to the hair.

Summer is known for its intense heat. UV rays attack the hydrolipidic film as well as the hair cuticle, which causes the scales to open and a loss of hydration. Therefore, it is important to strengthen this protective barrier as summer approaches.

For this, we recommend relying on lipids that are naturally present in the cuticle and hair cortex acting as a protective barrier and are degraded due to the numerous aggressions suffered by the hair, notably UV rays. Our restorative hair mask deeply nourishes and repairs the hair fiber thanks to the synergy of 3 natural active ingredients. The biomimetic ceramides act like cement to restructure the fiber and fill in the hair's scales. The mango butter (INCI: Mangifera Indica Seed Butter) repairs and prevents the appearance of split ends and limits breakage. Avocado oil (INCI: Persea Gratissima (avocado) Oil) strengthens the roots and stimulates growth.

2. Hydrating one's hair.

This time of the year is known for being particularly hot, and UV rays are responsible for dehydrating our hair. Therefore, it's important to hydrate your hair before this period to prevent it from becoming dry as soon as the warm weather arrives. For this, we recommend relying on hydrating treatments.

Our recommendations:

  • Our Shampoo with biolipid complexes and camellia oil: The biolipid complexes coat and smooth the hair fiber, thereby reducing the size of the scales and limiting water loss. Camellia oil (INCI: Camellia Oleifera Seed Oil) deeply nourishes the hair without weighing it down, and squalane (INCI: Squalane) forms a protective film on the surface of the hair.

  • Coconut Vegetable Oil: Its high concentration of lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid, gives it a structure similar to that of keratin, which makes it more easily absorbed deep into the hair shaft. Furthermore, it can deposit a protective film on the surface of the cuticle, which protects the hair from dehydration.

  • Avocado oil: This oil contains fatty acids such as oleic acid and palmitoleic acid that help to seal the hair cuticles and thus prevent their breakage and dehydration. In addition, it contains antioxidant molecules such as carotenoids, polyphenols, and vitamin E that protect the hair from UV damage. You can use it incorporated into a treatment as is the case with our repairing hair mask, or use it alone by spreading a thin layer over your lengths.

3. Avoid hair coloring before the summer.

Dyeing your hair just before summer is not recommended. Colored hair is particularly sensitive to the effects of the sun. Indeed, UV rays can degrade hair pigments, causing discoloration or alteration of the original shade. Colored hair becomes dull, lackluster, and can even change color in an undesirable way. It is advised to dye your hair at least three months before sun exposure.

4. Trimming split ends.

A split end is characterized by a hair tip that separates into two or more parts. When the scales of the cuticle, which are usually tightly packed together, spread apart and separate from the cortex, this results in the loss of the hair's protective layer, thus paving the way for the gradual appearance of split ends. The sun and the sea are aggravating factors for split ends and will force you to cut them shorter than expected at the end of the summer. Therefore, it is advisable to trim them before the arrival of summer if you wish to maintain a good hair length.

5. Protect your hair from all sources of heat.

The use of heating devices can damage the outer cuticle of the hair, leading to its weakening and dehydration. Moreover, the heat from these devices can alter the protein bonds of the hair, which can weaken their internal structure. This can make the hair more vulnerable to damage, breakage, and split ends. The effects of heating devices will accumulate with those of the sun and your hair will be further weakened. They will be more likely to break or become dry and dull.

Furthermore, it is important to protect your hair from the sun which can have negative effects on it. Before exposing yourself to the sun, apply a hair product containing sun protection or wear a hat to shield your hair from harmful UV rays.
