4 Steps To Follow For Shiny, Healthier Hair This Summer

Get your strands looking Insta-worthy in no time.

Now that summer is nearly upon us, the million-dollar question is this: how to rescue hair that’s been doused with enough dry shampoo to put a hole in the O-zone layer?

If your tresses are looking dull and dry instead of glossy and gorgeous, read on for some strand-saving tips.

1. Rethink your shower situation

Don’t worry – we’re not about to tell you to shower in sub-zero temperatures (although as an FYI, a blast of cold water before you turn the taps off is said to help with hair’s shine). Instead, try to have two shampoos and two conditioners in your shower going at the same time and alternate them every time you use. This peps up the scalp and hair follicles, which is key for healthy strands.

2. Brush, brush and brush (again)

Channel your inner Marcia Brady by making friends with your hairbrush again – it’s key to developing a natural shine. Stimulate your scalp often and get the blood to the surface. This invigorates your scalp and wakens up the follicle, so hair grows stronger and healthier.

3. Get regular cuts

Yes, even if you’re growing your hair. That good old tradition of having a trim every six weeks is a golden rule and even if you’re growing your length, you still need a dusting of those ends so they stay sharp

4. Use a detox range

If you’re addicted to dry shampoo or simply want to ensure your hair remains healthy and shiny throughout summer, now’s the time to stock up on a detox range. Our pick? The John Frieda Detox & Repair Shampoo and Conditioner ($17.99 each at Priceline). Loaded up with antioxidant-rich green tea and nourishing avocado oil, the daily duo gets rid of unwanted impurities and creates the perfect foundation for visible repair and immediate regeneration.
