4 Nourishing Post-Summer Hair Treatments

As our beloved summer season comes to an end and beach days turn to just a memory,  all that is left is a fading tan and less-than-lustre locks. And while fake tan provides an easy solution to ensure our limbs stay bronzed (sans sun), a little more work is needed when it comes to hair. After searching around for the best solution to regain soft, shiny and smooth hair, RESCU has discovered three luxurious hair treatments that will have your tresses revitalised and ready for the change of season.

It’s the celebrity secret to healthy hair, but Olaplex is not just for those with an A-lister’s budget. This treatment is fast becoming everyone’s favourite remedy to repair their broken bonds caused by colouring, heat styling and environmental stresses like the sun (and is totally affordable).

Expert hair stylist Lauren Walker explains the process, “Whenever you colour your hair, it can start to break down bonds. What happens over time is your hair becomes weak and you will start to see split ends and dryness because the bonds are unable to repair themselves. Olaplex goes in and starts to repair the bonds, which no protein treatment can do.”

The treatment can be used in-salon while getting your hair coloured, as a stand-alone treatment, or as an at-home treatment to use weekly in between hair appointments. Your hair will be able to handle colour better and it becomes much easier to manage. This product is a serious cheat sheet from Hollywood’s doorstep to yours.

Shu Uemura

In the modern age where UV exposure, dust and pollution are part of everyday life, nobody is exempt from the conditions we put ourselves through. But while we’re familiar with how these factors play havoc on our skin, hair is also left looking less than desirable – with locks appearing dry and tired. But there’s good news, with Shu Uemura releasing a treatment that might be the answer to your hair prayers.

Shu Uemura’s new range ‘Urban Moisture’ will help take your hair from split and broken to sleek and glossy before your eyes. Our favourite product is the Hydro-nourishing Double Serum, which is an oil-textured product that will give your hair that healthy glow and protect it from all those nasty urban aggressors. Perfect for the modern Australian woman who lives fabulously all year long no matter the season.

As the cooler weather approaches, our skin begins to get dry. We are constantly aware of moisturising our skin, but have you ever wondered how you can protect and maintain a healthy scalp?

All you need to do is massage it into your scalp three times a week.
