He knows what he’s talking about. Why else would this British man be standing in a dimly lit room with a lovely lady to the left (his right, your left…you know what I’m talking about). This is Philip Kingsley, the “hair doctor”…known for years as recognized for decades as the leading authority in hair health. Some might call him a trichologist…No, really…He’s a consultant trichologist, which means he’s concerned with the structure and function of human hair.
So I jumped at the chance to talk to him about taking my hair from summer to fall, revitalizing it from the sun and preparing it for colder temps. He gave me this great advice and two quick DIY recipes:
Even though you have tried to protect your hair as much as possible during the summer, you’re aware that it has become dry, dull and split. Autumn arrives and you require sleeker, smoother looking hair.
After the summer, the moisture in the cortex (the main bulk of your hair) seems to have diminished. A deep pre-conditioning treatment will definitely help with this type of hair damage caused by weathering and chlorine by adding more shine and body to dull looking hair. A DIY solution comprises of the following:
2oz (60g) of soft margarine
1oz (30g) of butter
3oz (30g) of single cream
3oz (90g) of heavy conditioner
For dry scalps try using a hair mask, mix together:
2 half eggshells full of witch hazel
Half an eggshell of vodka
Massage the scalp gently and wash off with your regular shampoo and conditioner.
This will help to hydrate and soothe the scalp.
