Remedies to take hair from dry and damaged to beautiful

These simple haircare insights will inject moisture and life back into weary, post-summer hair.

You might have had an amazing summer, but it’s not uncommon for your hair to feel past its best at this time of year. Dry, brittle and riddled with split ends, warm weather can leave it feeling dehydrated and damaged. As your hair can’t repair itself, here’s how to give it a helping hand to restore its bounce and vitality…


The problem: The weather

Just like your skin, overexposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can damage the protective cuticle that surrounds the outside of your hair. This leads to brittle hair, split ends and faded colour.

The solution: Refresh your hair regimen

Just as you would with your moisturizer, switch your shampoo and conditioner for something more nourishing for winter. A daily leave-in treatment such as Pantene’s Everlasting Ends Split End Repair Crème helps heal the damage but also protects against future split ends.

The problem: Salt and chlorine

Spending the summer dipping in and out of the pool has meant a chlorine bath for your hair with the results full revealing themselves in the fall. Used to disinfect the water, chlorine strips the natural oils from your scalp and can cause discoloration. Meanwhile, the high salt content of the sea likes to leach the moisture out of your hair, taking your hair colour with it.

The solution: Add some oil

Your hair needs oil to keep it looking healthy, so treat it to a coconut oil mask. As well as smelling like a tropical island, coconut oil is full of vitamins and essentials fatty acids. Slather it over your hair, starting at the roots and working down to the tips. Massage your hair with your fingertips and then tie it up, allowing the oil to soak in for 20 minutes before washing off.

The problem: Over-styling

Repeated blow-drying and the use of heated styling tools damages your hair follicles, which leads to breakages, colour fade and even thinning of the hair.

The solution: Heat protecting spray

Never show a hot styler to your hair without spritzing a heat protecting spray over it first. Always wrap your hair in a towel instead of rubbing it to get rid of excess water post-shower, and allow your hair to air dry naturally as much as possible. Avoid brushing your hair when wet, too, as this is when it’s most vulnerable to breakages.


The problem: Too many showers

All the hot weather and sweat during summer means you’ve likely been washing your hair more often, which can strip the scalp of its natural sebum, irritating skin and depriving your hair of oil. The change of season brings with it the opportunity of repairing the damage.

The solution: Dry shampoo

Try to increase the amount of time between washes with dry shampoo. Pantene’s Dry Shampoo cleanses, removes oil and refreshes your hairstyle without the need for washing – perfect for those in-between days. If you need to wash your hair daily, be sure to opt for a gentle shampoo, which gently cleanses as it moisturizes.
