We know how amazing spending time outside in the sun and around the pool is during the summer months. We’re all persistent to protect our skin from UVA and UVB rays, but often forget to give the same attention to our hair. No, hair can’t get sunburn, but the sun can cause discoloration, dry & brittle ends, split-ends, frizziness, not a hold a style or curl very well due to the dryness.
The sun rays and hair lightener act in similar ways, a chemical reaction happens. The rays react the with melanin in hair and irreversibly removes the color, which in result, starts to break down the keratin protein (70% of our hair strands are made up of keratin protein!) and rough up the cuticle (outer) layer.
Chlorine is a disinfectant. Disinfectants are used to remove and break down dirt, oil, and bacteria. Our scalps naturally produce oil to protect our hair from damage and daily wear. Stripping the oil from your hair in a pool on a regular basis can cause over drying, increased porosity, and in some cases pretty significant damage if you don’t take steps to prevent and treat your hair for chlorine exposure. The Mod must after being in chlorine is to rinse well with warm water, shampoo with a clarifying shampoo and heavily condition.
We recommend coming into Mod for the Surface Summer Hair Repair reconstructing treatment. It contains the a clarifying, but gentle, shampoo with a killer scalp massage, Trinity One Shot, a tube infused with high amounts of silk protein, followed by the Bassu Masque for super hydration and finishing it off with Bassu Oil for great shine and heat protectant. After shampooing and applying all these products, they are blown dry into the hair for maximum repair. You won’t believe the instant softness, hydration and life you get from this simple regimen. And BEST news yet, you can take all of these products home and never have dull, dry hair again!
