Ways to nourish dry and damaged hair!Published by on
After the summer season, your hair may be left dry and damaged from a mixture of sun exposure, chlorine from swimming, and over styling with hair straighteners and blow dryers from all those summer nights out. This often leaves your hair looking dull, dry and with split ends. The good news is that there are ways that you can help to nourish your hair, and ways that you can prevent further damage.
Firstly, drink plenty of water to keep your hair hydrated. This is a simple step that also has other health benefits, including keeping your nails and skin hydrated as well.
Wear a hat if you’re heading off for some autumn/winter sun to help protect your hair from further sun damage. This will also help you to become less dehydrated as well. It’s also worth using a shampoo and conditioner that contains a sunscreen in there as well to protect your hair when you aren’t wearing a hat. Be sure to wash your hair thoroughly after swimming in a pool with chlorine to prevent further chemical damage.
Use a moisurising shampoo and conditioner regularly to keep your hair nourished. You can also get shampoos and conditioners that have heat protection properties, which are ideal if you always blow dry or straighten your hair.

Use a hot oil treatment or hair mask once a week to moisturise your hair and make it look shinier and healthier. These are readily available in most supermarkets and chemists, or you can even have a treatment done at a hair salon as well, usually costing around £5.00.
Finally, if you use blow dryers, hair straighteners or curling tongues often, be sure to use a heat protection spray to protect your hair from the heat before blow-drying.
