Summer is now drawing to a close it’s hard to believe this is the last day of August! I mean, already?!
Around this time each year is also the time when I start thinking about transitioning not only my clothes, but also my beauty routine and my hair to get ready for the Fall season!
I have had an action-packed summer with my family.. spending a lot of time soaking up the sunshine at the beach and at our family pool (like, literally 3 to 5 times a week because I got pool-loving kids!) 🙂
Unfortunately, too much sun exposure, chlorine from swimming pools and salt water from the beach all combined to wreak havoc on my hair. I noticed my hair and scalp were dry. And because I’m emotionally attached to my blow dryer and flat iron (yes, I use them after washing my hair) and wear pony tails when I’m at home, my hair is more prone to static and breakages, which I know are caused by electricity-inducing friction from these hair appliances. So I am constantly looking for products that nourish my thirsty scalp and keep my hair smooth, healthy and well-moisturized.
Fortunately (and talk about perfect timing!) for me, I was sent a pair of CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ Intense Hydration Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner to test out. I have used this brand before with a different formulation so I was more than happy to try them.
To see how these products could help with my dry hair and scalp dilemma, I’ve used them every other day in the last three weeks and I can tell you, they did not disappoint! Both the shampoo and conditioner keeps my hair very soft and manageable. If you have dry, itchy scalp, this hair care line will also help. And even though both products have thick formulas, my hair felt light and bouncy after blow drying and styling. I also love the nice, fresh smell to these hair care products so for me, that’s another huge plus!
Thanks to CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ Intense Hydration Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner, transitioning my hair from Summer to Fall was a cinch! This is how I did it…
How to Transition Your Hair from Summer to Fall:
Give your hair tender love and care. Help your hair recover from sun damage endured during summer months by using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner combo like CLEAR SCALP & HAIR Intense Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner. I love that these products are formulated with Cactus Extract which has high fatty acids known to help prevent hair damage and promote healthier hair. I know life can get so hectic. But a nice 5-Minute Scalp Massage 3 to 5 times a week can also do wonders for both your hair and scalp!
Clean your hair up with a good cut or trim. Make an appointment with your hair stylist to get your hair ends trimmed and/or ask for suggestions if you need help with color or a new hair style that is appropriate for the Fall season and your lifestyle. I always remember my hair stylist’s suggestion to get a trim every 6-8 weeks to get rid of split ends and to help hair grow faster and healthier.
Protect and deep-condition your hair. You may already know this, but the use of a good thermal protectant before using your hairdryer or flattening iron is a must-do in order to protect your hair from further damage. Also, it’s a good practice to change your hair brushes regularly to make sure you are always using clean, undamaged bristles. Finally, find a good deep-conditioning hair treatment product to use once a week to help restore a healthy, well-nourished scalp. I found CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ Intense Hydration Nourishing Conditioner to be just as great in deep-conditioning my hair. I just leave it on for 5 minutes right after I wash with shampoo, then rinse.
You can find the CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ Intense Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner at Target.com and Walgreens.com. Retail prices: between $4.99 and $5.99. CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ is a line of scalp-nourishing shampoos and conditioners for women and men that will change the way people think about caring for their hair.
