end-of-summer hydrated hair routine

August has entered the chat: Aka. that transitional time where you don’t know whether to slather on sunscreen for a last-minute beach day, or break out the pumpkins in preparation for fall. We feel similarly about our haircare routines — we’re trying to protect our strands from the sand and sun while simultaneously trying to recover from the previous three months spent outside. Our advice? Keep reading for the hair routine breakdown below.

the hair routine

Before your fun in the sun, add fadeblock pre-shampoo color seal from roots to ends prior to shampooing. Formulated with UV filters, fadeblock shields strands from saltwater and chlorine, while keeping color vibrant for up to 12 washes. It’s the perfect product to use before a day at the beach or pool!

 

After your day in the sand + sun, apply reset pink charcoal scalp cleansing oil to dry, unwashed hair. This oil-to-foam purifying pre-wash breaks down buildup and refreshes the scalp without stripping. After all, scalp is skin too and it could need some extra TLC during the summer months. If you’re looking for a physical exfoliant, use reset exfoliating jelly shampoo to deeply clean and slough off unwanted gunk.

 

If you have dry, coarse, or highly textured hair, wash and condition with hydro rush intense moisture shampoo and conditioner. This hydrating duo drenches your hair with 3x more hydration** and results in long-lasting, 72 hour moisture**. The kure bond repair shampoo and conditioner is another great option, and is ideal for all hair types—especially high and medium porosity types! It results in 87% more repair***, 55% less breakage***, and is 2x stronger***.

**Clinically proven, hydro rush shampoo and conditioner when used as a system.

Complete your wash routine with a mask of your choice! Use flash instant shine mask, which contains UV filters and boosts brilliance while keeping hair bright, during the tail end of summer months. If your hair is blonde, gray, or silver, and needs some extra toning and moisture, use bust your brass repair mask. For those who need repair and strengthening, reach for the kure intense bond repair mask, or if you need an extra boost of nourishment, soulfood nourishing mask is your go-to.

As a last step, go to bed with dream routine overnight treatment. This no-rinse overnight mask replenishes hair hydration and boost moisture for 72 hours*! *Clinically proven, when used as directed.
