Protecting damaged hair: How to achieve perfect silky locks

Summer is the perfect time for free–flowing waves that behave themselves with little care. Plus, it’s usually far too hot to be using hairdryers and straighteners on your hair. With this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of products and styling tips that will help you achieve perfect silky locks while protecting damaged hair during the summer months.

Switch up how you wash your hair

Most shampoos contain sodium laurel sulphate which is essentially just a detergent, and not very good for our hair. Look for products that are recommended by hairdressers, and speak to your local salon if you’re not sure. Net-a-Porter recommends Marie-Stella-Maris’ ‘No.51’ shampoo that is 100% natural with Aloe Vera, Vitamin B and a mix of essential oils.

 

Ditch the heat

With warmer weather you don’t really need to dry your hair before leaving the house. If you stop yourself from styling using curlers, straighteners or just your hair dryer you will notice massive improvements in the quality of your hair. To achieve beautiful naturally dried locks, look for salt sprays, texturisers and curl creating products to give your hair some character. If you struggle with flat straight hair, plait your trusses in chunky sections while it’s still wet and undo them when it’s dry for easy beach girl waves.

 

Hide the damage

If your natural hair is too damaged to be left to its own devices, it’s time to call in for some back up. We’re talking adding more of what you’ve got, but less damaged. If you aren’t sure how to get instant hair extensions, it’s actually really easy and there’s no need to visit a salon. Simply find your hair colour and when you need a little bit extra of extra volume, clip in your hair extensions.

 

Protecting damaged hair

We slather sun cream all over our bodies but we’re less vigilant when it comes to protecting our hair from the bleaching rays of the sun. “If you don’t protect your hair, the sun can actually shift your hair colour and also change your hair texture by drying it out,” says hair colourist Daniel Sanchez speaking to ELLE magazine. To prevent bleaching and drying out, protect your hair with a sun spray. Clarins spray-on sun cream oil spray is for your hair and body, which is great because you don’t have to carry so many bottles around with you.

 

This summer, take these extra steps to protecting your hair and ensuring it looks great every day with little effort and fuss.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of the summer season.

 

 

How to Make your Eyes POP

Eyes are the window to the soul. They say it, we know it. Our eyes give us away when we are tired, sleep deprived, happy or sad. It is all in the eyes. Our eyes also play a major role when it comes to makeup. So how can you make your eyes pop? Here are a 5 beauty tricks you may find useful –

Get some sleep or some ice

We all need our beauty sleep. I know I need about 7/8 hours sleep to feel human, but some nights I just can’t get the sleep I need, and my eyes start to sting in the morning. On those frustrating mornings, I get a bag of ice wrapped in a flannel for some relieve. This can also help with puffy swollen eyes; the ice helps to take the swelling down.

 

Eyelash extensions

Using eyelash extensions is an easy way to make your eyes pop instantly. They are quick and easy to use, and there are loads of options now in the market. You can go for a natural-looking eyelash enhancement for a natural look. If you are after full-on hollywood glamour, you will find full-on false eyelashes to go with the look.

 

Make your eyes pop with a concealer

Concealers are great for making our eyes appear brighter, getting rid of dark circles, and hiding blemishes. To make your eyes pop using a concealer,  go for a shade lighter than your skin tone.

 

Use a Mascara

Mascaras are great for opening up the eyes and making them pop. I have quite a few mascaras in my makeup bag, and they all come in handy in different ways.

 

Get the eyebrows done

I like to have my eyebrows threaded or waxed every month. I prefer threading as it is easier on the skin and better. Threaded eyebrows also last longer than waxed brows, which is good value for money. Well shaped eyebrows is a good place to start when it comes to eye make up.
