31 Oct Summer Hair SOS: Tips & Tricks To Keep Your Hair In Check
It’s officially summertime, and that means it’s time to hit the beach, pool, or lake.
But with all that fun in the sun comes some not-so-fun side effects: fried, damaged hair. Don’t worry, though! We’ve got you covered with our tips and tricks for reviving your locks.
Keep reading for helpful advice on how to keep your hair healthy and gorgeous all summer long!
Summer tip one: Use a leave-in conditioner.
This will help to protect your hair from the sun and from damage caused by salt water or chlorinated pools. Look for a leave-in conditioner that contains SPF for extra protection.
Summer tip two: Rinse with cold water.
Hot water can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and brittle (this includes spa’s). Rinsing with cold water will help to seal the cuticle and lock in moisture.
If you can, try to limit washing your hair to no more than 2-3 times per week. Over-washing can strip your hair of its natural oils, leading to dryness and frizz.
Summer tip four: Skip the heat styling.
If possible, avoid using heat styling tools during the summer months. The combination of heat and humidity can be disastrous for your hair. If you must use heat, be sure to use a heat protectant spray and keep the temperature on low.
Summer tip five: Invest in a good hat.
A wide-brimmed hat is your best friend when it comes to protecting your hair from the sun. Not only will it help keep your hair from getting sun-damaged, but it will also help keep your scalp cool and prevent sunburn.
Now you can go and enjoy summer with healthy and beautiful looking hair with these tips.
