If the heat season is stealing the shine and hydration of your hair, be ready to start rehab
It is not difficult to find those who delight in hours on the beach or by the pool and want to make sure, whenever possible, to make the most of the heat until the sun sets. Too bad that the relationship of the hair with the most vibrant season of the year is not so well resolved.
When the weather warms up, the yarns suffer, day after day, and this happens even if you can not take vacations and travel – not even for a long time to enjoy the summer. “The simple fact that we face a more intense light in the comings and goings in the open air can already lead to changes in texture and color of the threads,” explains hairdresser Débora Melro , from Studio W Iguatemi in São Paulo.

So, at the height of the season, the hair already begins to manifest the damage suffered. Drying, double tips, broken wires and falling are common problems in times of high temperatures. Even the scalp shows fragility.
“It can become irritated, decay and develop excessive oiliness and seborrhea, a picture that, in more extreme cases, even leads to the fall,” warns hairdresser Tiago Parente of the TP Beauty Lounge in Rio de Janeiro. Having patience and regularity in care is the key to reversing the situation.
From the right shampoo to the professional treatment, we investigate what can be done to combat the most frequent problems and recover the strength of the fiber, soft touch and healthy shine. “With commitment, in a month or even less, the beauty and balance will be back,” says Débora Melro.
Sol, salt and chlorine cause oxidation of the pigments. In the case of blond hairs, pool water can leave them greenish – the fault of microalgae, which are deposited in the hair fiber. Good measure is a deep cleaning to remove waste and use products to protect, until it revives the color.

To use at home
Salt and iodine from sea water and pool chlorine do not forgive; the wires progressively dry out. The habit of washing the head more often in the hot months contributes to make them even grit, opaque and rebellious.
“One of the main symptoms of dry hair is that it becomes uncontrollable,” says Deborah Blackbird. “If the wavy has lost its shape, frizz has increased dramatically or the volume is excessive, be aware – the hair fiber is in need of nutrition.” Treatment oils, oils and herbs, ceramides and other active ingredients that include lipids and emollients are among the recommended to combat these signs.
