Quick guide to hydration
Quick guide to moisturising your hair in the shower
For a lot of people, summer goes hand in hand with swimming pools, beaches and sunshine. And, while it's a fun time of year, it can damage your hair, causing dehydration, hair loss and dull hair.
Blondes also face the issue of green tinges, one of the main consequences of exposure to chlorine and pool care products, but avoiding this unattractive greenish tinge is much easier than it might seem.
Whatever your hair type or colour, in-shower hair hydration works as an alternative for those looking for an effective solution to keep their hair silky and shiny throughout the summer months.
Hydrating your hair in the shower is key to having healthy hair, since strong, nourished hair develops natural protection against external factors.

Use the right products to wash your hair
Want to learn how to wash your hair like a professional? First off, it's important to choose a shampoo and conditioner that's right for your hair type.
Whether your hair is coloured, curly, coily or straight, applying the right product will help you to meet the specific needs of your hair and consequently protect it from external aggressors, chiefly the classic summer risk factors. The Natura Lumina range is perfect for this! It features a product tailored to each specific hair type.
You can count on the shower care mask
While you are washing your hair, after you've used your basic hair care products, the most important step in hair hydration is a hair care mask. Much more than a simple moisturising balm, a care mask penetrates deep into the hair fibre and reduces the hair's porosity. It treats damaged hair deep down and forms a protective layer around the hair.
You can also replace the conditioner with the mask. The Ekos Murumuru Care Mask, which combines all the benefits of a care mask with the properties of Murumuru butter, is an excellent choice, helping to repair hair from the very first application. You could also choose the Natura Lumina mask which will suit your hair type perfectly.
Finish with a moisturising oil
Another invaluable piece of advice: use moisturising and emollient products to combat dryness caused by the sea and swimming pool water and, of course, by prolonged exposure to the sun's rays. To avoid dry ends, apply Patauá Restorative Oil to clean hair, it is rich in plant proteins, fatty acids and omega 9.
Formulated based on pure Patauá oil and a cocktail of plant oils, this hair oil leaves a protective coating around each hair, while the product acts within the hair fibre itself. It eliminates frizz and split ends. With no need to rinse, this product boosts the shine and healthy appearance of your hair, leaving it protected and radiant.
