Maybe, just maybe, it is a combination of all of these things causing your hair to break, loose some of its color and take on the appearance of straw.
But you know it doesn’t have to be this way, right? You can (and most definitely SHOULD) be taking extra care of your hair during the Summer months. Here is the good news: the tips I have aren’t going to take you hours to implement. I’m not suggesting you add hours to your hair routine each day. However, I AM suggesting (as I typically do) that you take a little time to put some thought in to your hair rituals and routine and put your self first.
Look, I know the kids have to get to camp and you have to make lunches before they head out the door. And I know everyone wants to head to the pool and they are waiting on you. And I know you have to pack for the WHOLE family before you leave for vacation. But the time you take for you will be worth it. You’ll start to recognize yourself in the mirror again and you will FEEL good.
That’s worth more than a little something good.
