Tips On How To Get Long Luscious Locks This Summer

The Coconut Oil Mask

The vitamins and essential fatty acids that are naturally found in coconut oil nourish the scalp and help to remove sebum that builds up from the hair follicles. Coconut oil also moisturises the hair which prevents breakage and slows down any signs of fallout whilst giving the hair a healthy shine. At the end of the day soak and massage coconut oil into the hair and scalp for a few minutes and cover with a turban. Leaving the oil in overnight allows for maximum absorbance and will leave your hair strong, soft and shiny.

Tip: Coconut oil is an excellent natural sunscreen. It is perfect for the Summer, when you know that your hair will be exposed to the elements more than usual. Spray some coconut oil for ultimate natural nourishing protection.

The Caffeine Coffee Rinse

Coffee is excellent for balancing pH for hair and is also really effective in stimulating your roots by improving its structure and growth. Apart from making the hair stronger and smoother, caffeine also gives a natural sheen to make it more manageable.

Tip: Pour pre-brewed cool coffee into dry hair and allow it to sit for 20 minutes before cold rinsing and conditioning out.

The Vitamin E Drench

Vitamin E is extremely good for hair and has been an essential ingredient in body lotions, shampoos, and conditioners for years. You can use it individually in a capsule to work from the inside out or even mix vitamin E oil with coconut oil and apply it to your scalp for a luxury hair mask.

Tip: Leave to soak in overnight for extra nourished shiny hair.

The Cold Rinse

A super steamy shower can take its toll on your hair, leaving it coarse and dry. Rinsing with cold water, on the other hand, helps to seal the cuticles and strengthen the hair, helping it to grow longer whilst maintaining its health.

Trim The Ends

Snipping your hair more often encourages faster hair growth and removes split ends. Regular styling makes your hair prone to split ends and damaged cuticles therefore trimming the lower portion of your hair every six to eight weeks is always worthwhile as it minimises damage.

Lay Off the Heat

High heat styling tools are great in the short term, but the long-term effects are damaging. There are various other options available such as rag curls, rollers and braid waves. If you can allow your hair to air-dry as often as possible or select the cold settings when using a blow dryer, this will also make your hair look shinier!

Tip: If you do have to use hot air, keep the dryer a distance of at least 6 inches between your scalp and the blow dryer nozzle.

Don't Over Colour Hair

Whether you have highlights or lowlights it will have a direct impact on how healthy or unhealthy your hair will look. Over colouring causes dry split ends, lack of lustre, hair breakage and plays havoc with the appearance and overall health of the hair. Ultimately when you dye the hair you are destroying the first layer to change the colour within, thus destroying the protective layer. Put the dye down to stop breakages which shortens your hair by inches.
