you can

do to prevent damage from happening to begin with?


there are several tricks and products you can use to beat the heat


on your hair this season.

Read on to discover the top 8 summer hair care tips to keep your style

from fizzling out this summer.


Your hair gets just as thirsty in the hot summertime as you do. So why

not treat it to a little moisture-rich refreshment?

Switching your shampoo

and conditioner to moisturizing formulas and using hair oil or serum on the

ends will help restore parched locks. For added treatment, conditioning masks

and live-in conditioners will give a deeper level of moisture.

Need even

more help? Salons can give you a professional deep

conditioning treatment

that will restore the silkiness and leave even

the most damaged

hair looking healthy.


Yes, hair sunscreen is an actual thing. Your skin isn’t the only one that

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.

By doing a little research, you

can pick one that works with your daily routine and gives you the treatment

and protection your hair needs.


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.

This will help avoid frizz and absorb as much water as possible. Next,

opt to air dry while you finish the rest of your morning routine.

And while

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.

Extend the

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.

However, if you have the type

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.


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?

Your hair

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.


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.

Cover your

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.


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?


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.


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.
