I don’t know about you, but Summer activity fries my hair! I just completed a two week series of swim lessons, so I’ve been in the chlorinated pool 4-5 days a week and also been walking outside at least 4 miles a day. Due to sun and chlorine exposure, my hair is dry as straw and bleached at the ends.
Madison Reed hair color provided this list of Seven Tips For Summer Hair Repair. If you don’t know, Madison Reed offers “healthy, professional-quality” home hair color that is free of ammonia and resorcinol. Over the next couple of weeks, I plan to try these tips and will report back on my quest to get my hair looking as “fit” as I feel. I posted a “selfie” so you all can see my “before” shot..

Seven Tips For Summer Hair Repair
This summer, have you enjoyed sunny days at the pool, exploring the great outdoors, and traveling far and wide? If so, all the summer excitement probably has been harsh on your hair. Here are a few tips from Madison Reed to get your hair back in shape. So your hair will look as healthy and fit as you feel!
1. Turn Down the Heat: Your locks have been suffering the heat all summer long so give them a break by using a cooler hair dryer setting while your hair recuperates.
2. Stash the Irons: Try out some of the new styles that don’t require a flat iron or curling iron. Your hair will thank you, and you might find a look you like even better.
3. Get a Trim: After all the sun, wind, and chlorine this summer results is split-ends and frizz consider getting a little trim is an easy way to start fresh for the fall.
4. Avoid Alcohol …in your hair products that is. If your hair is already feeling dry and dehydrated, using styling products that have alcohol in them, like gel, will make your hair even more brittle.
5. Get a Good Brush: Use a boar bristle brush to brush your hair thoroughly at least once a day. This will help distribute your hair’s natural oils throughout your tresses and help your hair heal any damage on its own.
6. Do Some Deep Conditioning: It can be as easy as leaving a deep conditioner in instead of rinsing it out or trying out a new hair masque. Either way, your hair needs this like a cool drink of water on the hottest summer day.
7. Use a Healthier Hair Color: Looking to darken your shade for the fall? A lot of permanent hair color formulas contain ammonia, resorcinol, PPDs and alcohol, all of which can damage your hair far beyond what it’s already been through this summer. Give your hair a nutrient boost instead with Madison Reed hair color. Madison Reed says “We don’t use any of those chemicals! Instead, we pack our salon-quality formula with naturally-derived ingredients like argan oil, keratin, and ginseng root extract for vibrant, long-lasting color in your favorite fall shades.” Find your perfect hair color now!
