MILAN – To help scalp and hair cope with the summer holidays, Davide Diodovich has drawn up rituals and advice that can give excellent results for the care and well-being of scalp and hair. In the Hairspa Davide Diodovich Salon, in via Montebello 24 in Milan, pre and post holiday treatments and rituals are carried out. But what to do while on vacation? It is advisable to carry out maintenance rituals for the health of the hair so as to avoid the disasters of the return.
Simona Ristagno, Davide Diodovich’s Colorist and Haircare Specialist, reiterates the importance of exfoliating the skin as long as it is done away from days of sun exposure. The skin must be treated with the same attention as the face and body.
During the days at the beach, we protect our scalp by generously distributing sunscreen as well as a hat to keep close at hand on the hairline (between the forehead and the beginning of the hair) and on the hairline. These precautions will avoid annoying burns and traumas to the hair bulbs which can make our hair weaker during the autumn period. In fact, it has been proven that among the damage caused by the sun to the hair, in addition to dehydration, the best known, there is also a possible “abnormal” fall caused by bad exposure.
As far as the hair shaft is concerned, it is important to include rituals in the salon that prepare it for sun exposure, especially for those who like to lighten and color them. It is possible to amplify the effectiveness of rituals through Davide Diodovich treatments that use Spa Mist and Micromist technology.
Furthermore, it is important to include products with UV filters capable of protecting hair during exposure and restoring the right amount of water in the cleansing phase. Summer is a very delicate phase for hair: if it is treated according to the right protocols and with the right products, it will be healthier and the color will tend to remain balanced and beautiful.
After swimming in the sea, it is advisable to always rinse your hair in fresh water, to eliminate the salt which accelerates dehydration, and to apply products enriched in the formulation with UV filters. Also prefer flannels to elastic bands in case you want to tie your hair up to avoid stressing it too much.
The right products for the summer must contain lots of water and vitamin C with a very high antioxidant content.
