How to Help Keep Summer Hair Healthy

Summer brings dryness: dry lips, dry skin, and of course, dry hair.

There are countless hair care formulas that promise to beat parched summer dryness and hydrate your strands, but not all products deliver. Some formulas are riddled with nasties that ultimately make your hair even drier.

But fear not, because Dr Dominic Burg, Chief Scientist and Hair Biologist, tells us why évolis White will be your new strand saviour and what else you can do achieve healthier, more gorgeous hair.

Dominic, tell us a little bit about évolis White and why it’s great for dry hair.

évolis White is formulated with an exclusive blend of natural antioxidants and baobab, that aggressively hydrates and nourishes hair, bringing back shine and overall health to hair.

The deep conditioning mask will help to repair extra dry, brittle and heat-treated hair, nourishing and enriching your summer strands. Apply it like your typical hair mask for a few minutes, then rinse, or leave it on overnight for a deeper treatment after a day at the beach.

What else can we do to ensure we have healthy hair in the new season?

Apart from choosing a natural hair care range like évolis that ensures you are growing the best hair you can by restoring hair life cycle, you can;

Eat a balanced diet! A healthy diet should be rich in B vitamins, zinc, iron, and the other trace elements important for hair growth. After menopause, natural dietary sources of phytoestrogens such as flax seeds can also be beneficial.

Get active! Exercise boosts your metabolism, which is important for overall health and influences hair growth. Exercise also reduces stress levels, preventing stress hormones like cortisol from impacting your hair cycle.

Be kind to your hair! Avoid harsh chemical treatments. If you are going to wear extensions, make sure that these are not too heavy. Heavy extensions can place traction stress on the follicles, leading to damage and potentially follicle death.

Use gentle, naturally-based cleansers! Avoid things like SLS and SLES, as well as parabens and silicones, which can build up in the pores and cause further problems. Silicones can also weigh thinning hair down, which is not ideal. Ensure you are using products with natural antioxidants to fight the signs of aging. Also, be careful not to wash too often as this can strip out the natural oils, resulting in brittle hair and breakages.
