Summer time means being active and having fun, swimming and being outside in the sun. It’s great being active and busy for the summer, and some women forget to take care of their hair, so when September comes, it’s good to do some maintenance on your locks, and My Hair Trip will tell you what you need to get your hair back to healthy.
1. Get a trim: Your hairs natural oils keep it protected and supple, sun and chlorine sap those oils from your hair. This can cause split ends and frizziness. Getting a cut of a half inch or so can make your hair look better, instantly.
2. Rehydrate daily: instead of your regular conditioner try using one of our conditioners from Davines or Phia designed for dry and/or damaged hair. If your hair is really dry or damaged, leave your conditioner in your hair rather than rinsing. Also, picking up one of our hair serums and/or mists might be a good idea.
3. Make sure you choose the right shampoo. Shampoos that are made for washing out chlorine are awesome for days when you are actually swimming. But if you already have chlorine damage, those shampoos don’t do much good. Instead, use a hydrating type like Davines’s Oi shampoo or any of our Phia products which will literally work magic enriching and moisturizing your hair, while it cleans it.
4. Wash your hair only when it is necessary. There’s literally nothing better for your hair than its own natural oils, so shampooing every day washes those oils out of your hair and doesn’t give them time to work their way down the hair shaft. You probably want to try to go at least one day between shampoos — two to three if your hair can handle it.
5. Brush, brush, brush! A great way to let your hair’s natural oils repair your damaged hairs is through regular brushing. “It distributes the natural oils and encourages your hair to shine. We recommend to our clients to brush their hair every evening.
6. Keep an eye on your hair and look for signs of serious dehydration. If you are running into the common problem with your hair not holding any style that you try to do to it, that means it is seriously dehydrated from summer. To fix this problem, avoid styling products that will dry your hair, such as gels that contain alcohol, and any maximum-hold hairsprays.
7. The foods you eat can help to nourish your hair. Good fats, such as omega-3s, and B vitamins actually help hair grow strong, shiny, and full of body. Try adding salmon, tuna, nuts, and seeds to your diet. You don’t have to go crazy or overload on these foods, your body only absorbs a certain amount daily anyway.
8. Use cool air setting to dry your hair. The heat from your blowdryer will damage hair the same way that the sun does. While you’re nursing your hair back to health, switch to the cool setting on your blow dryer.
9. Don’t use hot tools for a little while. Heated metal styling tools like flat irons and curling irons can cause more damage to your locks.
10. Try one of our hair masks or moisturizing oil treatments. Our stylists and clients have been raving about our all natural, super effective essential oil treatments. This is your fastest most effective path back to healthy hair.Leave a reply

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – NCIS actress Pauley Perrette is warning fans about the dangers of hair dye after suffering a severe allergic reaction to her trademark ink-black color.
CBSLA’s Kristine Lazar spoke with Perrette, whose character, Abby Sciuto, is known for her raven locks.
A natural blonde, the actress has been dying her hair for 20 years.
But her beauty routine landed her in the hospital when she broke out in a rash and began to experience severe swelling.
“The other half of my face had become twice the size of my head,” she said.
Perrette posted a photo of her swollen face on social media, warning her half-million Twitter followers about the dangers of hair-dye allergies.
This was me at hospital today and it got worse #Allergy #AllergicReaction PLEASE read my next tweet http://t.co/AYf4GfM3sm

“The most important thing to me is that anyone out there that dyes their hair, particularly black, you need to be aware of the symptoms,” she said.
There are warning signs, according to Jacob Offenberger, an allergist at Northridge Medical Center.
“If you have hair dye, and the next day or the day after you start to have itchiness and you start to see redness or [an] eczema-type of lesion, it is telling that you that you are having an allergic reaction to that dying,” Offenberger said, warning, “If you would do nothing, the next time you do the hair dye, it’s going to get worse.”
That is exactly what happened to Perrette.
Six months ago, the actress broke out into a rash all over her neck and scalp but ignored the symptoms, she said.
Perrette says she’s now looking into natural hair dye and also into wearing a wig.
