Bloom for the summer!
Posted on March 23 2021
Our hair deserves as much care as our skin. The effects of winter’s heating season’s dried out air at home is dry and split hair ends and loss of moisture in the scalp. No doubt that winter has sucked our energy and vitamin reserves that mirrors in a tired looking facial skin, scalp, hair and nails. Maybe they have become dull-looking, they are harder to comb through, more brittle, and maybe, how it is very common in the spring time, - they fall out a bit more than usual.
It is important that not only after the long winter and tiring spring you wait for the effect of hair care products, but you have to pay attention to a healthy food intake and lifestyle in general. Eat a balanced diet that is rich in vitamins, go outside in the fresh air, do at least light workouts, because it will help your body providing cells with oxygen, improving metabolism and taking care that the hair follicles have gotten the necessary vitamins that - yes, you’re right - improve hair growth.
The change of seasons causes for either skin and hair to adapt, and when the summer is already knocking on the window and the sun shines even more, you have to change up the products on your bathroom shelves. Switch them for things that are relating to the actualities of the season to achieve more brighter looking and shinier, healthier hair, and you – to bloom once again!
To help the scalp not lose the moisture levels and balance, you have to take a look at the ingredient list of your shampoo – a lot of them contain sulfates (f.e. Sodium Laureth Sulfate) that are surfactants. They withdraw natural oils from the skin, and you can develop a dry skin, allergies, irritation and itchiness.

When you go outside in the sun, you will not only improve your vitamin D levels that are so important for overall health and immune system, but your baby hairs that are starting to grow in the springtime will be more ready to take in the sun exposure. But there are products that will help the hair not to fight the UV rays alone.
"Sens.us Hairlovers" - Illumy Light Oil – find it here – light oil in a spray bottle. It provides UV protection and gives dull-looking and colored hair some shine. UV filter thanks to Luminescine provides protection from UV ray radiation, that is especially important during the warm seasons of the year. Why? Because you have to be careful with sun exposure not only our skin, but our hair as well. Our hair attracts the sun rays because of the color, and, how we know, sun makes the hair lighter. If we want for our hair color to last and our hair to be healthy, then we have to take care of a “SPF for hair” before we go out.
What is Luminescine? – it is a natural COSMOS ORGANIC approved ingredient that is derived from a plant Verbascum Thapsus. It has the ability to absorb UV rays, while reflecting the light at the same time. The good impact of Luminescine is the reason why it is used in innovative beauty products to give hair some extra shine. Goji extract in this spray nourishes the hair and gives them vitamins and amino acids, leaving the hair healthy and more durable to the impacts of environment.
This is going to be a perfect product to use not only before going to the beach, but also for everyday use and for professional use at the salon.
The light spray is usable in both damp and dry hair before styling and is perfect for using before hair straightening with hot tools. The hair becomes shiny, but is not weighed down and oily. The color is more vibrant and brighter.
Suitable for professional use.
