SUNSCREEN FOR YOUR HAIR

absorbs damaging UV rays from the sun, so you need to protect your
hair as well.
Shop for summer hair care products that include the right
amount of sunscreen. There’s a wide assortment of shampoos, conditioners,
sprays, oils, and masks to choose from. It all depends on which one
works best for your hair type and lifestyle.

and protection your hair needs.
AVOID EXCESSIVE HEAT
There’s enough heat outside as there is in the summer, you don’t need to
add to the problem by using more heat to style your hair. Tis the season
to ditch the hair appliances!
Your hair dryer is the first culprit. Leave it in
the drawer and instead use a microfiber towel to blot your hair dry.

opt to air dry while you finish the rest of your morning routine.
you’re at it, leave your curling iron and straightener in the drawer as well.
Embrace your natural texture or add in a sea-salt spray to give your hair
that summer care-free style.

As the days get hotter and the conditions get sweatier, it’s tempting to wash
your hair every day. However, by doing just that, you are stripping your scalp
and hair of much needed natural oils… and nobody wants that.
time between washings by using a dry shampoo. Sprinkling the powder onto
your scalp and working it in with your fingers will absorb grease and give
your hair body and texture at the same time.

of oily hair that can’t go long without washing, switch to a mild shampoo instead.
Suds up just your scalp and let the soap run through the rest of your hair.
This will help keep the drying out to a minimum.
SAY GOODBYE TO SWIMMER’S HAIR
If you’re a blond, you likely know the frustration of having your hair turn green
after a swim in a chlorinated pool. Or how many of us have taken a dip in
the ocean only to be gifted with hair that feels like straw later on?
naturally absorbs water, so when you’re swimming in chlorine or salt water,
your hair will suffer the drying out consequences.
Minimize damage by rising
your water with cool, fresh water before taking a swim. You can even add
a protective summer hair care mask designed just for swimming if you want
an added layer. The more your hair absorbs the fresh water and protective
mask, the less salt, and chemicals can get in.
PROTECT YOUR COLOR
You love your color. And your color loves you. What neither of you will love
is what the damaging, fading effects the sun can do to your color.
hair as much as possible when out in the sun. You’ve always wanted to pair
that funky hat or pretty scarf with your summer outfits, and now you have
the perfect excuse to do so.
Also, make sure you use hair care products that
are specifically formulated with color-protecting ingredients. They will protect
your hair from the sun’s damaging effect and help keep it from fading. And when
you use those products, always rinse with cool water. Hot water is drying and
can fade the color.
The cool water not only protects, it will help make your hair shine.
WEAR LOOSE STYLES
Summer humidity can be brutal, something those who suffer from frizzy hair
know all too well. So fight the frizz with fun, loose hairstyles!
It’s the perfect time
of year to experiment with loose, care-free styles. That’s what summer is all about!
You can try messy buns, high ponytails, big braids… the sky is the limit. Not only
will it help keep the frizz at bay, you will feel cooler by keeping your hair off your neck.
You’ll look good and feel good – what’s not to love about that?
DON’T SKIP A TRIM
When your hair dries out, your ends will be more likely to split. And splits ends
make your style look ragged and frizzy.
Scheduling regular trims will help keep
your hair healthier and looking it’s best. This will also keep your hair less tangled
and prone to breakage.
SUMMER HAIR CARE CAN BE EASY
So by-all-means, go out and enjoy yourself this summer. But now you know
how to beat the heat and keep your hair looking healthy and its absolute best all season long.
