When it comes to hair products, I’m always up for trying something new. I’ve found the perfect gel to make my waves frizz-free and have a curling iron that holds my curls like no other, but something I’m always searching for is the ideal product to help mend split ends and make my hair stronger. In case you can’t tell from the photos on my blog, I have a lot of hair, and it’s fairly fine and breaks easily, so adding strength is key. I often get comments on the length and health of my hair and receive questions about the specific products and techniques I use. Today I’m focusing on a few of my favorite products and advice for strong, healthy summer hair.
For the past two weeks I’ve been using Neutrogena’s new line of shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in treatment designed to make your hair 3x strongers after just 1 use. My favorite product of the three is the leave-in treatment, which makes my ends feel stronger, thicker and softer after applying. I try to heat-style my hair as little as possible (I prefer to let my hair air dry for natural waves), but there are always occasions where I need to blow-dry or use a hot iron. Heat tools=damaged hair and split ends, but combined use of these products help to protect your hair against heat styling over 400 F. IMO, you shouldn’t ever use a hot tool at a temperature above 400 degrees, but to each her own.
While summer may lift our spirits and give us a nice tan, it also can take a toll on our hair. For healthy hair, I recommend avoiding blow drying as much as you can (use dry shampoo to make a blowout last longer), stop towel drying your hair (it can be rough on your hair’s cuticles) and get a trim when necessary. If you’re a swimmer, I’d recommend this line of products as well to help repair your chlorine damaged hair.
According to the product’s packages, the Triple Repair Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner mends 97% of split ends with just 1 use, while the Triple Repair Fortifying Leave-In Treatment reduces breakage by 80%.
