Save Your Locks from the Summer Sun

By mid-July, most of us have “summer hair,” … chlorine and sun damage have gotten so bad, we don’t even recognize ourselves in the mirror. Sun-bleached, dry, flaky, unruly, we try to re-tame our hair with mousse, hair spray and other chemicals, which only makes it worse. What to do?

Here are a few great tips to keep your locks looking healthy and beautiful!

  • Deep condition without the chemicals. Coconut oil is a yummy butter substitute in the kitchen, but is also a fabulous hair conditioner. Melt a few tablespoons of coconut oil in the microwave, and rub the oil deep into your scalp, then coat you hair with a thin layer from root to tip. Sleep in it overnight then wash it out in the morning. Your hair will be silky smooth and shiny!
  • Forget the curling iron. If excessive heat outside is already damaging your hair, why add more with your hair dryer or flat iron?
  • Sunscreen for your tresses. Since hair is made of dead skin cells, you should treat it the same as your skin! UVA and UVB protection are available in haircare products as well.
  • A change in your daily routine. If you use hairspray or mousse every morning, try going without once a week. Put your hair in pigtails or french-braid and give your hair a chemical vacation.
  • Snip snip. Keeping your ends trimmed is a must for anyone trying to grow their hair, but a monthly trim during the summer will keep those split ends from creeping up higher into your scalp.

Have a hair-healthy summer!

I love using at home remedies for my skin! Here is a great homemade Oatmeal Face Mask! This mask can help brighten your skin and is an excellent exfoliator which will make your skin soft too. It’s also great for reducing swelling and redness!

What you will need:

  • 1 cup Regular Oatmeal (any Brand)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbs Plain Yogurt
  • 1tbs Honey
  • 1 tbs Lime Juice

What to Do:

  1. Place the oats in a blender and give it a few pulses, you want the oats slightly blended but not powdered.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix with a fork. If the mixture is too stiff add a little more yogurt, not too much because you want the mixture to be thick and pasty not runny!
  3. Remove make up and wash your face.  Gently apply the mixture to clean skin and allow it to dry completely (this can take 15-30 minutes).  Wash the mask  off with warm water and a face cloth.
  4. Use this 2-4 times a week in combination with your regular skin care regimen.

Note:  Leftover mixture can be refrigerated for about 7 days. Before using again you may need to warm it a little.
