We spend so much time in summer making sure that our skin is protected it can be easy to forget how fragile our hair can be. Exposure to sun, sea and chlorine can take its toll, and that’s before we add heat from hair dryers and flat irons. If you find your hair is brittle and damaged follow the following tips to revitalise your hair right before we head in to a new season.

Before we start it is important to remember that repairing damaged hair won’t happen overnight, but over time developing these tips will aim you down the road to recovery!

Mask it!

A hair mask is something we can deem unnecessary but using a conditioning treatment once a week is a great way to boost the strength of your hair.  A great option for damaged hair is Kérastase Nutritive Masquintense an exceptionally concentrated nourishing treatment for dry and sensitised hair. It is important to remember that not all deep conditioners are the same and you should find a deep conditioner that works with your hair type, one that won’t weigh your hair down or cause your hair to feel greasy.  If you are not sure make sure to ask your stylist next time you are in the salon and they will point you in the right direction!

Chop Chop!

Not all of us have a happy relationship with scissors, but if your tresses are damaged, your ends are brittle and splitting you know it’s time for a haircut! The good news is you don’t have to get it all chopped off, a healthy trim can transform your hair and will remove some of the damage making the repair process a little easier. If you are feeling brave, check out some bob inspiration below!

Bring it back to Life!

After returning from a week long holiday in the sun or from prolonged sun damage (in between the showers!) at home in Ireland may have left you with a dull tone to your hair colour. In order to restore your hair colour to its former glory the team at Hessions advises you to use products that are designed to lock in and protect colour. Shu Uemura Illuminating Shampoo and Conditioner are great for achieving that long lost glow you had before your holidays!
