Healthy hair is always in fashion says Riccardo Maggiore from the Riccardo Maggiore Salon. The summer months can be fun but at the same time can be a nightmare for your hair. The Vidal Sasson protégé believes if you follow the below four tips, your hair will look healthy, sexy, and definitely summer fun ready!
- GET A GOOD HAIRCUT: Split ends or porous hair can cause further damage due to its quick absorption of the sun’s rays, chlorine and salt water. For that reason, during summer months get your hair into excellent shape with a thorough haircut or trim. If hair is in very bad condition, you should consider a shock, reconditioning or hydrating treatment.
- SPF FOR THE HAIR: More people are realizing the importance of protecting not just your skin, but your hair from the sun as well. While soaking up the sun, be sure to use hair products that provide some UV protection, otherwise you could wind up with really dry, broken strands at the end of the season. Riccardo is also a big advocate of large floppy hats for the summer, which not only protect your hair from the sun, but your scalp too. Use sun specific products with a UV protectant, like Riccardo Maggiore Gel-Vitale Moisturizing Styling Gel, which contains sunscreen agents to protect hair from damaging UV rays.
- DRINK IT UP: Hair tends to be drier and more prone to breakage in the summer, so feed your thirsty strands with a deep conditioning treatment to help restore moisture and elasticity.
- EAT WELL:By including plenty of good sources of essential fatty acids in your diet you can give your hair back its strength and shine. By eating salmon, seeds, nuts, olives and avocados you can keep your hair beautiful and healthy.
