Shampoo commercials weren’t lying when they said that harsh elements can damage your hair. When you’re always on the go, enduring sunlight and smoke takes a huge toll on it. Likewise, vacationers also usually get bad hair from chlorine, seawater, and sunlight if not maintained well.
Before going back to work on Tuesday, you should take the opportunity to rejuvenate your locks. The last thing you want is showing up with dry, frizzy, or tangled hair. And no, saying “I woke up like this” isn’t going to save you this time. So give your hair life again with our picks.
Bring back your hair’s natural softness and bounciness with Aveda’s Restructuring Shampoo. Enriched with quinoa protein, it promises to remove dirt caused by pollution, and repairs dry and damaged hair. It also contains ylang-ylang, bergamot, and mandarin for a signature floral scent. Available at Zalora PH.
Add this leave-in conditioner in your handbag or travel pack. Just squeeze an ample amount and comb it through your hair from roots to tips. This will help detangle your hair and give it volume and shine. It also works as an effective protectant for colored hair. Available at Beauty MNL.
Always have a bottle of this Beach Born’s Sunset Spray for detangling emergencies. After you swim, towel-dry your hair and apply a few spritzes. This will moisturize hair and provide additional sun protection for the next time you go back out in the sun. Available online.
Looking for ways to tame your frizzy hair? Don’t fret as Kérastase’s new hair treatment can do just that. This aromatic product, made from jojoba, Samoan coconut and avocado oils, is meant to be massaged on the scalp or tips before shampooing. The result is luxuriously soft hair that’s easy to manage and style. Available at Kérastase Institute by Salon ESA.
