Life at home has been harder on your hair than you might think. If you’ve found yourself stretching the time between hair washes, wearing a perpetual ponytail in a hair elastic, or twisting and twisting strands with your fingertips on virtual office calls, your hair are ready for a reset. Plus, with more opportunities to safely hang out and socialize, there’s never been a better time for gorgeous, healthy-looking hair to take center stage.
Fortunately, getting hair back into top shape doesn’t require a salon visit. Justine Marjan is TRESemmé’s global stylist and shares her six tips to help hair open a new chapter this summer.
1. Swap with sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner
Something as simple as prolonged exposure to indoor heating systems can zap hair of much-needed hydration. Help restore hair with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner like TRESemmé Pro Pure Damage Recovery. “With 0% sulfates, parabens and mineral oils, this duo doesn’t compromise on performance while being a cleaner way to take care of your hair,” says Marjan.
2. Consider a beauty multivitamin
Look for a multivitamin that strengthens hair, skin, and nails and can help improve hair health from the inside out. While these vitamin and nutrient rich supplements are easy to add to your daily routine and available from the same stores that stock essential hair washing and care products, be sure to consult your doctor before incorporating them.
3. Prepare the curls to beat the heat
Whether you have naturally curly hair or are looking to create a curly hairstyle, the right wash and care products are an important first step. Marjan recommends TRESemmé Pro Care Curls Shampoo and Conditioner. “This duo locks in moisture, smells great and has a sulfate-free system that helps protect curls from moisture.” She continues, “After the shower, give your hairdryer a break and wrap your hair in a soft t-shirt or microfiber towel to help curls maintain their definition.”
4. Try a DIY hair mask
For hair that needs a little more maintenance, consider either leaving the conditioner on for a few more minutes while the hair is wrapped in a shower cap (the steam will help lock in the conditioning benefits of the product) or create a hair mask at home with ingredients like avocado, honey, coconut oil, or apple cider vinegar to help give hair an extra dose of nourishment.
5. Accessorize “intermediate” hairstyles
If you’ve had to postpone your standing haircut, opt for edgy hair accessories like trendy knotted headbands, enamel barrettes, or even ’90s-inspired mini claw clips to help hide the bangs. that can grow or style hair between lengths. Even hair that has spent a few days between washes will look fresh with the right adornments.
6. Sport a new style
Many of us have fallen into a hair rut with the same rotating styles. As we safely begin to schedule time with coworkers, family, and friends, be sure to try out some new styles to add that boost of confidence to your meeting. Whether it’s heading back to the office or dining al fresco, the “Get the Look” section of TRESemmé.com features step-by-step details for recreating today’s trendy hair styles.
