Soon the holidays, the beach, the swimming pool, the heat… something to decompress and enjoy! But beware ladies because the holidays are not easy for our beautiful hair. Between sand, chlorine, salt and the sun, our hair is subjected to numerous attacks which weaken it and can make it dry and brittle.

 

Here are some hair tips to keep your hair healthy:

 

 

 

Tip number 1: Protect your hair from external aggressions.

 

Before leaving for a day at the beach or swimming pool, consider applying a protective oil to your lengths. Put a few drops in your hands, rub and distribute delicately all over your hair, insisting a little more on the ends. Be careful not to put too much of it, it might grease them.

 

Here are some vegetable oils that contain a natural sun protection factor:

 

    Buriti oil

    Karanja oil

    Sesame oil

    Coconut oil

    Castor oil

    Jojoba oil

    Argan Oil

    Avocado oil

 

Prefer organic 1st cold pressed oils. Be careful not to use oils that do not contain sun index, such as monoi oil, which will do the opposite.

 

Tip number 2: use hydrosols

A hydrosol is water that is collected at the end of the distillation of essential oils. It has the virtues of the distilled plant. Hydrosols can be used without risk unlike essential oils. They have many benefits for the hair: they stimulate growth, strengthen them, hydrate them and give them shine.

Here are three hydrosols to use on dry and damaged hair:

 

    Witch hazel hydrosol

    Blueberry hydrosol

    German chamomile hydrosol

 

Apply your hydrosol after shampooing to damp hair. Distribute generously and gently massage the scalp and lengths. Place it in the refrigerator after opening, for better conservation.

 

 

 

Tip number 3: apply a nourishing mask

 

For well-hydrated hair, apply a homemade nourishing mask and leave it on for several hours or even overnight.

 

Here are 3 homemade recipes for soft, shiny hair:

Honey and olive oil mask

2 tablespoons of honey

6 tablespoons of lukewarm water

4 tablespoons of olive oil
