Summer Hair Care

Worried your hair won’t beat the heat this summer? No worries. L.A. Hair’s celebrity hair stylist Kim Kimble dishes on some of her best hair saving treatments that you must try this summer!

HOT OIL TREATMENTS replenishes and rejuvenates hair. Wheat germ provides nutrients and lubricating elements that restore shine. Combine it with castor oil and olive oil and vitamin E. Apply heated mixture to dry hair, sit for 30 minutes under a shower cap and shampoo out!

MOISTURE MASK TREATMENTS moisturizes and adds body to hair. Mix 1 avocado, ½ stick unsalted butter, and 1 egg yolk in a bowl or food processor. Apply to scalp and sit for 30 minutes under a shower cap. Shampoo out. Fatty acids in avocados strengthen hair and prevent hair from becoming brittle.

HERBAL HAIR RINSE TREATMENTS keep the scalp refreshed and keep you cool. To create your own, steep 1 chamomile tea bag, and a handful of herbs: peppermint, rosemary, and sage on the stove for 2 hours – and let cool. Shampoo hair first. Apply the herbal mixture liberally to scalp with a nozzle tip spray bottle. After 30 minutes, gently rinse hair. The Herbs offer scalp conditioning and hair growth.
