Summer hair survival - Part 1


During the summer, your hair can really take a beating. UV damage, heat damage, salt water and over washing. likewise, the winter can also play havoc with your hair, drying it out in the wind, the rain and cold weather. On top of all this abuse, us beauty girls just love to attack our hair with heat styling which only adds to the damage! There are a variety of treatments and products available to treat the damage already done to your hair and prevent any further damage. In this series, I'm going to share a few products that I've been using to keep my hair looking and feeling great during the hot summer months. 

One staple in my hair care is a good leave in conditioner. And I've gone through SO many different brands and formulations in that past, but the Schwarzkopf extra care normal balance express repair leave-in-conditioner really stands out for me. A leave in conditioner for all hair types, the extra care normal balance express repair leave-in-conditioner is formulated with liquid keratin to repair the damage and resurface gaps and breaks in hair. The advanced formula of Schwarzkopf normal balance express repair leave in conditioner gently nourishes hair without leaving it weighed down and greasy, smoothing the hair and adding shine. 

I simply spray the leave in conditioner to the ends and lengths of my hair while it's wet, before styling. I also add a little spritz to the ends after drying to keep my ends from frizzing the heat. You can also use it on dry hair to keep up moisture during the day. I often use it before bed for an over night treatment. As leave in conditioner isn't washed out, it keeps working on the hair during the day to replenish and repair hair all day. 

The normal balance express repair leave in conditioner makes my hair so soft and silky, so much more than other leave in conditioners that I've used over the years. Since using this product my hair isn't as prone to breaking, and looks and feels so much healthier. Unfortunately it doesn't smell that nice. It's not an overpowering scent, and doesn't cling to the hair thankfully, it's just not that pleasant during application. 

So keep your hair tip-top all year round with a leave in conditioner. In heat or cold, damaged hair can always do with a little pick-me-up.
