For most of us summer means sun, beach, fun, beautiful sun-kissed skin and glossy hair locks that make us feel sexier and happier. These are the pictures that we will look at during winter with nostalgic regret. Yet at the beginning of Fall, our hair often looks like a mess after its exposure to too much fun things.
If you hair feels coarse, dehydrated or brittle, check our remedies to nurture, heal and bring your hair to look its best for fall no matter what you put it through this summer.
For Dry Hair
If your hair is parched and dry, go for Philip Kingsley’s Coconut Breeze Elasticizer, pre- shampoo conditioning treatment infused with a scent of coconut. It conditions deeply, adding elasticity and bounce by delivering moisture deep into the hair cuticle. Hair is left intensely nourished, healthy, young and vibrant. Find it at Philipkingsley.com.
For ultra baby soft hair, no matter what the damage is, choose Erika Cole Hydrate Shampoo and Hydrate Conditioner. A gentle formula that is free of all the chemicals that dry out hair, it contains argan oil to soften hair, chamomile to brighten it and parsley extract to condition scalp.

For Blonde Hair
For blonde-colored hair, try Schwarzkopf Professional’s new collection of restorative treatments and hair rejuvenating products such as BLONDME Keratin Restore Bonding Shampoo and Cleansing Conditioner with integrated bonding technology that creates new bonds within the hair fibre and help to strengthen weakened areas in the hair structure while smoothing it.
I also recommend Schwarzkopf Blondme Keratin Restore Bonding Mask – a repairing treatment with the same bonding technology to heal the structure of fragile, lightened and colored hair. This conditioning mask has a rich, creamy texture and is for both at-home maintenance and for use during in-salon blonde services.The products are also available at Schwarzkopf Professional partner salons, http://www.schwarzkopf-professionalusa.com and http://www.LoxaBeauty.com.
For Weakened Hair
Nurse your weakened hair to health with Ms Pompadour Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner. Infused with silk protein, wheat amino acids, panthenol pro vitamin B5, and Guar gum, it restores and balances the Ph level of your hair, binds moisture, provides a protective barrier to your frazzled strands while leaving hair pliable, lustrous and frizzless.

With super concentrated actives from bamboo and a mixture of amino acids, minerals and Vitamins A, B and C, Brazilian hair specialist Novex’s Bamboo Collection is ideal for broken/weak hair that needs an extra dose of strength and growth. Try Novex Bamboo Deep Hair Care Treatment to strengthen your tresses, let it sit on them for 25 minutes and then rinse well. Novex is available at http://www.novexhaircare.com.
For Dull Hair
Sometimes too much build up from styling oils and creams can make hair dull. Quickly remove residue built up on hair to leave your scalp and hair fresh and shiny with Purifying Scalp Hair Toner Essential Rinse. Chose between a refreshing rinse made with spearmint and peppermint or one with apple cider vinegar. After shampooing, apply directly on wet hair, massage into hair and scalp, rinse and see how soft and refreshed your hair feels. Get it at http://www.essentialrinse.com
