Our favorite aspects of summer — the pool, the ocean, the sun — can wreak serious havoc on our hair. Toss those elements on top of hair that's been dyed, treated and styled, and you've got a perfect storm for damage.
Thankfully, we found a product that repairs summer hair (and helps the Earth while doing it): Feed Your Sunshine serum by Yarok, part of a line of vegan, organic, all-natural hair care products containing responsibly sourced ingredients. All of Yarok's products, including Feed Your Sunshine, are free of parabens, sulfates and alcohol — and they're animal cruelty-free.
Feed Your Sunshine defends hair from chlorine and harsh fun while repairing hair that's OD'd on product. The blend of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and oils — found in ingredients like black currant seed oil and organic aloe vera — turned our hair from straw to silk. It even soothed our irritated scalp; we've been itch-free for the past week. Use it before swimming or after a day at the beach to restore your hair to its baby-soft days.
Feed Your Sunshine is available for $26 (1 oz.) at www.yarokhair.com. Massage it through your hair for about 15 minutes, wrap your hair in a hot towel for up to 30 minutes, then shampoo and condition it out. If you really want to get fancy, book an appointment at Yarok's beauty kitchen and have a stylist do the treatment for you — you'll get a killer scalp massage, a luxuriously relaxing hot-towel treatment and a blow-out to boot ($75-$125).
