Getting Hair Summer Ready

The heat is coming, or so I believe it is (clearly not soon enough for North America). But it is eventually, going to get here and so is the humidity. The -40°C temperatures this winter have really done their toll on my hair. My hair feels dry, dull, unhealthy and just boring, although I recently had it hi-lighted.

Bed time healing:

To give some much needed love to my tresses, I’ve made one of my favorite old recipes to apply before I go to bed tonight.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 cup Mint extract
  • Almond oil

Here’s what you do:

  • Heat almond oil in microwave for 15 seconds, let stand for a couple of seconds to cool
  • Mix 5-6 drops (depending on how tingly you want to feel) of mint extract into the almond oil and mix well
  • Apply to your scalp, working your way down to your roots.
  • Cover with scarf or towel and go to sleep!

When you wake up in the morning, simply wash hair as normal. Give yourself a deep concern conditioning treatment as well; heat your conditioner under hot running water and then apply to your tresses. This will give your hair an extra boost and relax your scalp. Leave conditioner on for 2-3 minutes before rinsing. 

To add more shine and to smooth out fly-aways, you can use a couple of drops of almond oil instead of serum. This will add shine and keep your hair protected. Just be careful not to apply to much, or you’ll end up looking like a grease pot.
