Hi Lives of Style audience! Michael Canale here.

Allison from West Los Angeles had a question for me, and I thought I’d lead off my “Mondays with Michael” blog with it today.

Hi Michael,
I live in LA and get my hair highlighted. And I’m out in the sun a lot, especially in the summer. How can I keep my hair healthy?

Hi Allison,

May I say–Thank you–to you and all the gorgeous ladies–and men who’ve emailed me. I’m really happy with the response to this blog. Lots of emails! Keep them coming! I’ll try to post answers to the ones I think are helpful for everyone at this time of year.

To your question Allison. When your hair is color treated the sun, the water and the elements can effect your color and texture.

Here are a few rules to live by:

1) Wash your hair only as often as necessary, when the hair is gummy, dirty or oily. Sometimes a good rinse with hot water is all you need!

2) Davines Love Lovely Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner are great for color-treated hair. They’re extremely nourishing which is what you’re hair will need.

3) Trim your hair whenever you see split ends and when you feel your hair is out of shape. Try to get into a routine with your stylist.

4) To detangle your hair, always brush from the ends up. Then to get the natural oils back into your hair, brush from the roots down. I recommend using a Mason Pearson Boar Bristle Brush.
