How to protect my hair and clean my brush!

Steps for Hair Protection this Summer:

  1. Use a Sun Hat or Scarf: Cover your hair with a wide-brimmed hat or a lightweight scarf to shield it from direct sun exposure.
  2. Limit Heat Styling: Reduce the use of heat styling tools like blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons as they can damage your hair further.
  3. Apply UV Protection: Use hair products with UV protection to minimize sun damage to your hair. Look for leave-in sprays or serums designed for this purpose.
  4. Hydrate and Condition: Keep your hair hydrated by using Beyond Organic Shampoo and Conditioner to help moisturizing an provide that deep conditioning treatment for that extra nourishment.
  5. Avoid Chlorine and Saltwater: Rinse your hair thoroughly with fresh water before swimming in chlorinated or saltwater pools. Consider wearing a swim cap to protect your hair.
  6. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to keep your hair and scalp hydrated from the inside out.
  7. Regular Trims: Schedule regular trims to get rid of split ends and maintain healthy hair.
  8. Avoid Tight Hairstyles: Opt for loose hairstyles that minimize tension on the hair shaft and scalp.


Remember to Clean Your Hair Brush Regularly:

  1. Remove Hair: Use a comb or your fingers to remove hair strands trapped in the bristles of the brush. This prevents buildup and promotes better brushing.
  2. Prepare a Cleaning Solution: Fill a bowl with warm water and add a few drops of mild shampoo or liquid soap. You can also add a small amount of baking soda for extra cleaning power.
  3. Soak the Brush: Submerge the brush in the cleaning solution, bristle-side down. Let it soak for 10-15 minutes to loosen dirt, oils, and product residue.
  4. Scrub and Rinse: Use an old toothbrush or a brush-cleaning tool to gently scrub the bristles and base of the brush. Rinse the brush thoroughly under running water.
  5. Disinfect (Optional): For extra cleanliness, you can soak the brush in a mixture of water and rubbing alcohol for a few minutes, then rinse again.
  6. Dry: Shake off excess water and pat the brush gently with a clean towel. Let it air dry completely, bristle-side down, before using it again.
  7. Regular Maintenance: Aim to clean your hair brush at least once a month or more often if you use styling products. This prevents bacteria buildup and maintains the brush's effectiveness.


By following these steps, you can help protect your hair during the summer, maximize the benefits of your shampoo and conditioner, and maintain a clean and hygienic hair brush.
