PUREOLOGY- 6 Tips To Repair You Hair

Many of us tend to think that summer is the season to blame all our hair wows, thanks to all the sun exposure, chlorine, saltwater, and not forgetting the dreaded strand expanding humidity! But then winter comes in with its own set of weather induced frustrations like hair dullness, breakage and those god annoying static ends.

‘NEW YEAR, NEW ME’ … ‘OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW’

Sound familiar?

Why not spruce up your hair care routine, repair whatever damage has been cause in the winter, and prepare you hair for the  ‘Indian summer‘ they keep promising us.

#1- Use a Clarifying Shampoo

One of the best things you can do is start things off with a clean slate, and try using a clarifying shampoo like the Purify Shampoo, to repair your strands and remove any build up. As a tea tree oil shampoo, it works to clear your hair and scalp of any impurities and any salt or chlorine build up, without stripping your hair colour. Use this once a week, or every other week to detoxify.

#2- Restore Your Hair

As well as cleansing your hair, you can also treat your hair to a nourishing experience, with Precious Oil Shampoo & Conditioner.  A unique oil delivering system, penetrates deep into the hair fibre to deliver 4x the active ingredients to drastically replenish hair. Precious oils triple action micro oils, repair, replenish and lock in colour pigments. Ingredients include: sunflower, coconut, olive and jojoba oils to provide softness, vitality and moisture to hair.

#3- Up Your Masking Game

If you find your hair has a tough job absorbing or retaining moisture, it might be time to add a mask into your new hair care routine. Its not uncommon for dry hair going through the seasonal change to need a little more TLC, I mean we all can’t go ‘chasing waterfalls’ can we. Not only can using a mask help make your hair feel softer, it can also make hair that’s prone to tangling, feel more manageable. Feed your needy hair with the Superfood Hydrate Treatment.

#4- Plump Up The Volume

As the weather cools down, so does your hairs level of volume. Sound crazy? In the summer, the humidity is to blame for making your hair uncontrollably frizzy and big, but in some ways is helpful because its maximising your hair, giving it a bit of life and body. When Autumn arrives, there is less moisture and humidity in the air, making your hair feel limp and flat. To compensate for the lack of moisture in the air, plump up your hair with Levitation Mist, which instantly lifts your roots, without having the frizz do the work,  giving you the bit of boost you have been used to.

#5- Fend Off Static

Once again, the lack of humidity in the air can send the hair’s electrons into a panicked frenzy. To keep the unexpected static shocks at bay, and to repair your dry hair at the same time, spray a little of the Colour Fanatic Leave-in-Treatment before styling. The more you keep your hair hydrated and moisturised, it cuts down on the amount of unwanted static.

#6- Give Up Heat

Getting healthier hair this year might be one of your Top 3 New Years Resolutions, and cutting down on the amount you straighten, curl or even dry your hair is the first step to achieve it. Ever considered leaving your hair to dry, but scared it will look like a birds nest? Why not swap your hair dryer for the Hydrate Air Dry Cream, and leave your hair to dry naturally. A miracle hair product the relieves frizz, hydrates and replenishes and gives touchable softness to a styled look with little or no styling time, giving you the ‘I’ve spent ages waving my hair’ kind of look without actually applying any heat. BUT, if you cant live without your hot tools, you can still repair your hair and keep it feeling and looking its best by using Smooth Perfection Style and Care Infusion. Not only does it help prep your hair for smooth hairstyles, it insulates the hairs outer layer to protect it from any heat damage, and provides lustrous smoothness, movement and frizz free style for up to 72 hours.
