Summer is when we enjoy sunny days, the beach, and the pool, but it can also be challenging for our hair. Exposure to the sun, salt water, and chlorine can damage your hair, leaving it dry, dull, and brittle. That’s why we’re sharing special care tips to keep your hair healthy and radiant during the summer. Take note!

Sun protection for your hair

Just like we protect our skin from the sun, it’s important to protect our hair. You can use hair products with sun protection, such as sprays or conditioners with UV filters, to prevent damage from the sun’s rays. Additionally, consider wearing hats or scarves to provide an extra protection barrier.

Intensive hydration

The sun, pool, and beach water exposure can dry out your hair, so hydration is crucial. We recommend applying hydrating hair masks once a week to restore lost moisture. Also, remember to drink plenty of water to hydrate your hair from within.

Washing and conditioning

Wash your hair regularly using gentle, sulfate-free shampoos to avoid excessive dryness. After showering, use a lightweight conditioner or leave-in product to detangle and protect your hair. It’s also important to avoid brushing wet hair as it’s more prone to damage or breakage.

Minimize heat usage

During summer, try to reduce the use of hair dryers, straighteners, and curling irons, as the additional heat can weaken and damage your hair. Allow your hair to air dry whenever possible, and opt for natural heat-free hairstyles. Use a heat protectant, especially on the ends of your hair, if necessary.

Avoid tight braids or hairstyles

While updos are an excellent option for summer, avoid tight braids as they can damage your hair and put tension on the hair follicles. Opt for looser hairstyles and use hair accessories that don’t exert too much pressure.

Protect your hair at the beach and pool

Before getting into the water, dampen your hair with fresh water and apply a leave-in conditioner. This will help create a protective barrier and prevent your hair from absorbing excessive salt or chlorine. After swimming, rinse your hair with fresh water to remove residues and apply a hydrating conditioner.

Regular trims

Maintaining healthy ends is essential for strong hair and preventing split ends. After summer, consider scheduling a trim with your stylist to keep your hair in good condition. It’s recommended to have regular trims every 6 to 8 weeks for healthy hair.
