Summer Hair Recovery: How to Treat Seasonal Breakage

While we enjoy our Summer holidays under the sun, our fried hair wishes it had stayed home. Although beachy hair is synonymous with the coveted Californian look, the path of sun-kissed locks has damage as its destiny. Don’t wait until the summer is over to repair your hair from seasonal damage.

Several factors lead to damaged hair in the summer; UV rays, thermal styling, chlorine, and saltwater. Not to mention any chemical services you get in between! The rays from the sun dry out the hair and lead to color fading because of the sun breaking hair bonds. Suppose you already experience hair damage before summer. In that case, the UV rays from the sun can also accelerate and intensify the damage you already have, creating a compromised head of hair.

Routinely treating, maintaining, and protecting your hair will save you from accrued damage in the fall and keep your hair thriving all summer long. An OLAPLEX routine is exceptionally beneficial year-round, and the summer is no exception.

To treat seasonal breakage, start with the most intensive OLAPLEX treatment available at home using OLAPLEX Nº.0 Intensive Bond Building Treatment and OLAPLEX Nº.3 Hair Perfector. For best results, treat your hair weekly.

Recovery Guide

Dampen the hair with OLAPLEX Nº.0. Note, the hair shouldn’t be dripping but rather wet to the touch. Allow the product to work its magic for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes have passed, apply OLAPLEX Nº.3 directly on top of the hair, combing through to ensure even saturation. Leave on for an additional 10 minutes or longer. People report even more dramatic results when they leave the treatment on for 30-60 minutes! Shampoo the product out with OLAPLEX Nº.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo then condition as you typically would (we recommend OLAPLEX Nº.5).

To address dryness in the hair, seek refuge in OLAPLEX Nº.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask. Apply onto damp hair, comb through for total saturation, then leave the product on for a minimum of 10 minutes. If you desire, leave the product on longer––rinse when you’re through! These treatments work wonderfully together and are entirely customizable to your lifestyle. Apply them back to back weekly for best results.

Keep your repaired summer hair protected by applying OLAPLEX Nº.7 Bonding Oil for UV protection, protection from heat up to 450º F, and luminous shine.
