Hair lost that sexy sizzle?

I don’t know about you, but all the time I’ve been spending outdoors and in the pool this summer has taken a little of the sexy sizzle out of my hair. My locks are looking dull and lifeless and I’m starting to suspect that the sun and chlorine have teamed up to wage an all out war on my tresses!  I want to send the summer out in style this Labor Day weekend, but things are not looking so good in the hair department.

Don’t be like me and wait until the damage is already done to take action. There are some preventative steps that can help. For instance, you can wet hair with tap water before swimming to seal the cuticles and keep the chemicals out, or there’s always a hat. But my feeling is, a hat is often better suited for a poolside party. Besides, it’s not what I had planned to wear to my Labor Day celebration. What’s a girl to do?

Since my  hair color is still looking great and it’s not time for a touch up, I’m going to pull out my secret weapon – Ion Color Brilliance Demi Permanent Intensive Shine in clear. It adds great shine, lasts 4-6 weeks, and since it doesn’t contain color I can use it not matter what my shade is. Nice!

Do any of you have any tips for reviving summer damaged hair? Please share in the comments!

    This is where I get confused! Since this is a clear glaze type product, do you need a developer? Or is can you use the product alone to add shine? Yes, the hair color aisle intimidates me…I hate paying $$ for hightlights, but am afraid to do it myself. I’ve used other clear shine products from the drugstore to prolong my color in the past.
