Sun, chlorine, salt water, sweat: help! Your hair gets a serious beating in the hot summer months — here are the superhero summer hair care products that’ll rescue those damaged strands.
Summer strands need an extra good clean, yet also need additional nourishment. Kérastase PARIS geniusly, and might we say gorgeously, combined the need for both essentials and treats our mane to their new Bain Chronologiste Revitalisante. Neither too creamy and heavy nor does it leave strands squeaky clean, this perfectly balanced cleanser is a real pleasure to lather up with. The scalp is purified and cleansed, while hair is smoothed and enveloped with nutrition.
To achieve the best results, comb the complimenting Chronologiste Crème de Régénération into the scalp and through lengths. This super luxe wonder cream packs the highest number of active ingredients the line formulated in their highest concentrations to revitalize the scalp, leaving hair incredibly soft and noticeably healthier. Formulated with an alphabet of vitamins and Abyssine, a “‘prodigious molecule’ discovered in the volcanic faults of the Pacific Ocean, is combined with Gluco-Lipid GL and Bisabolol for an in-depth nutrition and an irresistable velet touch.” Good luck keeping your hands off your out-of-this-world amazing hair after this one-two punch!
