Strengthen Your Hair: Summer Essentials

Summer is just around the corner and we have tips for you!

You may already be thinking about upcoming family holidays and making the most out of the long, warm days. We know we need to protect our skin from the sun, but our hair also needs some extra care. Look your best for the special summer occasions – here are some tips to help you prepare your radiant and strong hair for the summer season.

Beauty Starts from Within

Before we cover some haircare tips, let’s start with your own wellness: if you want your hair to shine and enhance your natural beauty, you must nourish your body with the right nutrients. We are what we eat, right?

Choose a balanced, healthy diet full of vitamins, minerals, omega essential fatty acids, good quality protein and, of course, stay hydrated. Some of the foods you can look at are* eggs (for protein and biotin), berries (for Vitamin C), fatty fish such as salmon and mackerel (for Omega-3 fatty acids and protein), avocados (for healthy fats) and nuts (for healthy fats and zinc).

Healthy recipes ideas can be found in our “Slenderiiz Programme Approved Recipes” PDF, available in the Partner.Co Share™ app.

Leading a busy lifestyle means it is not always easy to get the nutrients we need from food only, which is why we offer high-quality food supplements to add to your daily vitamin intake.

Our Slenderiiz® Beauty Boost™ is a great addition to your daily routine since it’s formulated to address the specific nutritional needs of hair and skin through a blend of ingredients such as biotin, Vitamin C, Aquamin™ (seaweed extract rich in bioavailable minerals) and added electrolytes. Your overall wellness will also benefit from this powerful formula!

Haircare Tips

There are good practices we can implement to better maintain healthy hair, especially in preparation for the summer, when external factors such as heat, sea salt, sand, sweat, etc. can cause it to be more brittle and fragile:

Trim split ends regularly to improve the appearance of your hair and make it look thicker, prevent breakage, promote healthy growth and facilitate detangling.

Use nourishing shampoos and conditioners that are not chemical-based to hydrate your hair over time and prevent excessive build-up. Our Reviive™ Shampoo and Conditioner are formulated with natural cleansing and conditioning extracts that gently cleanse your hair and restore its elasticity and manageability. Our Conditioner also protects against UV damage, so you’ll want to start including it in your summer haircare regime!

Avoid heat styling to prevent cuticle damage, which leads to decreased lustre and breakage. There are now new tools to style your hair without using heat, such as overnight curling headbands and blow dryers that use a safer technology by including intelligent heat control and reducing drying time. If you use heating tools every once and a while, make sure you use heat protectors.

Detangle your hair with care to prevent breakage starting from the ends all the way up to the roots. You can opt for gentle detangling brushes with soft teeth for less pulling, especially for wet hair, such as the Tangle Teezer Detangler.

Sleep with a silk hair bonnet and pillowcase to protect your hair from friction and tangling overnight, which will also help reduce frizz and keep it more manageable for longer.

With a nutritious diet, a healthy lifestyle and the correct haircare habits, you can prepare your hair now to be healthy and strong not only during summer, but all year long.
