The FEKKAI Guide to Summer Hair Damage—And How to Fix It

Summer may feel different this year, but we're grateful that we can still get in some sun and surf. Those natural elements that make the season wonderful do lead to summer hair damage though, from powerful UV rays to the chlorine in our favorite pools. 

Thankfully, that damage can be temporary, as caring for our summertime strands just requires adding a few extra steps into our routines. Here, our tips for getting your healthiest hair ever right now and straight into the fall. 

MAKE MASKS YOUR BFFS.

Masks are true hair miracle workers. They can revive your summer hair damage to fully healthy and nourished strands. Our Super Strength balm is a routine essential because it can be used on both wet and dry hair. Apply some before you take a jump in the pool or swim in the sea for hair that’s protected and softer after your next wash session. 

MAKE A CLEAN SWAP TO FIX SUMMER HAIR DAMAGE.

Technician Color Ingredients

Controversial ingredients get the job done, but they weaken and damage your hair over time. We’ve swapped sulfates, silicones, parabens, and phthalates for natural ingredients that repair your hair and keep it strong. Our ingredients list breaks down everything you need to know. 

DRY WITH A T-SHIRT, NOT A TOWEL.

We love a roomy towel to accentuate all of our bathrobe selfies, but the texture that makes them lush and cozy to our skin makes them stripping and harsh on our hair. Instead of using a towel post-wash, remove excess moisture from your hair with a T-shirt for less harsh treatment and less friction. 

VISIT YOUR STYLIST FOR A CUT OR DIY.
