The Effects of Sun, Chlorine, and Salt Water on Your Hair

The Effects of Sun, Chlorine, and Salt Water on Your Hair

They’re are a few weeks left of summer; we’re maximizing every moment and you should too! To fully optimize our summer experience we need to protect and restore our skin and hair when exposed to sun, chlorine and sea salt.

We love the sun and need it’s rays, but too much sun can cause cellular damage, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, hyperpigmentation and even skin cancer. Sunscreen, hats and protective clothing are going to be the first line of defense and RENEW face serum + REPAIR face oil are going to be your go-to products for protecting and correcting over-exposure. Use these products pre and post sun on the face, neck and décolleté. 

Chlorine removes natural protective oils present in our skin and hair, leaving hair dry and brittle, and skin dry and prone to rashes. We advise rinsing your hair and body with fresh water as soon as you exit the pool. You can restore healthy oils by applying REPLENISH everywhere oil to the entire body including the scalp, roots and shaft of hair.

Sea salt has both pros and cons. It restores the skin's natural pH balance and provides vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that the skin desires to stay clear and healthy - that’s why you’ll find Dead Sea salt in several LINNÉ products. It can also gently exfoliate dull dead skin, freeing clogged pores; and as an anti-bacterial agent it discourages the growth of bacteria responsible for breakouts and acne.

Sea salt sprays are popular for good reason as they can give great texture to the hair, but overuse of these styling products and lots of time in the ocean can in fact dehydrate the hair. Not all bad, sea salt opens up pores on the scalp to allow for proper and faster hair growth; and by promoting blood flow, and adding nutrients to the scalp it has a healing effect on itchy and flaky scalps. To ensure healthy locks at the beach, work just a few stops REPLENISH everywhere oil into the ends of your hair before diving in and use it as a hot oil treatment for the scalp and hair when back at home.
