Weekend Refresh: Healthy Locks Before, During, and After the Good Times (Selena Gomez + Miley Cyrus)
Whether you just spent a weekend in the sun, or you a weekend full of events that required heat styling, your hair might need a bit of a break! It is always good to treat yo’ self to some nice hair treatments and care after a long weekend of fun to make sure your locks are ready for the next time you put them through the ringer! As we step into Spring and Summer it is officially party time, so we thought we would share our hair care tips for keeping your hair healthy pre and post fun weekend events!
If possible, the week leading up to your weekend plans, try not to over wash your hair! Let it get nice and dirty and rock the messy bun. This is actually super good for your hair to nourish itself in its natural oils When you finally do wash your hair it will feel so good and extra silky and healthy! If you are going to be applying heat over your weekend or any sort of crazy color you want to be sure that your hair is extra moisturized, especially if you will be in the sun! Applying some coconut oil from your ears down and throwing your hair up in bun for a few hours before your final wash will help give your ends a boost of moisture!
If the weather is nice, your event will most likely take place outside in the sun at this time of year! Don’t forget that your scalp and hair get effected by the sun just like your skin. Putting sunscreen on your part in your hair and drinking tons of water throughout the day if you are at a music festival can save your hair from the sun damage. Trust us, you do not want a sunburned scalp!
Time to refresh your hair! Before you hop in the shower, if possible, try and brush through your hair while it is dry to comb through excess product. When in the shower, let your conditioner sit in your hair for a few minutes, and then comb it through with a wide tooth comb. This will make the after-shower process so much easier! In the days after your weekend, be sure to apply a deep conditioning treatment to your hair once or twice to restore it’s moisture and don’t be afraid to let your hair get dirty and have it nourish itself in its natural oils! I mean don’t we all want our hair too look as healthy as Selena Gomez’s in her Pantene ad?
