SUMMER HAIR CARE

FROM CUSH SALON AND CAFE

As we all know, during the hot, sunny, summer months, our hair can really take a beating.

Wendy J. Nelson and Hector Rodriguez are two of the resident stylists at the ultra-hip Cush Salon and Café in Beverly Hills, CA.  Boasting more than 20 years of hair care experience, each, they are the stylists to the stars and are experts at cutting, coloring and caring for hair types of every length, type and ethnicity.

With the hottest months of the year looming literally, over our heads, Wiles recently sought them out to get their expert opinions and advice on the best and easiest ways to protect our gorgeous tresses against the heat, humidity and damaging sun.

Here are their Top 5 Summer Hair Care Tips!

TIP # 1 -  DON’T OVER-WASH YOUR HAIR.

According to Wendy, fine hair needs to be washed every 3 days, medium-to-coarse hair, every 6 days.  And if you’re hair is really coarse, you can go up to 10-14 days between washings to ensure that the hair isn’t stripped of essential oils.

TIP #2  - DON’T OVER-CONDITION.

While it may be tempting to add a little extra moisture by leaving your conditioner in a little longer than the directions advise, our experts insist that you may be doing more harm than good.  So, resist the temptation to “deep condition” and rinse out your conditioner as noted on the back of the bottle.

TIP #3 – DO USE A LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER.

Leave-in conditioners provide the intense deep conditioning that hair stripped by hot sun and wind desperately need. Wendy and Hector agree that using hot oil treatments and silicone-based products–particularly in humid climates – is essential to replenishing the hair with vital moisture to ensure its health, luster and manageability.

TIP #4 – WET YOUR HAIR BEFORE YOU TAKE A DIP.

Whether dipping in the pool or enjoying ocean summer fun, Hector insists that it’s best to wet your hair before you dive in.  Reason being:  if your hair is already saturated, it will take on less of the salt and chemical-laden water in the ocean and swimming pools.

TIP # 5 –  APPLY SUNSCREEN TO YOUR HAIR.

That’s right – once you’ve finished rubbing your skin down, apply a dab to your hair.  After all, the same intense sun light that can adversely affect your skin is beaming down on your head!  The UV protectants found in sunscreen products will help your hair to fight off those harmful rays.
