- Shield your hair from the sun by wearing a scarf or a hat. You love your hair color but it fades in any direct exposure to the sun, wearing any cover will protect it and help your scalp retain moisture.
- Before going out in the sun apply any UV filter hair care product, whether cream, spray or gel, it will keep your strands from getting scorched.
- Before taking a dip in the pool or the sea, wash your hair and use a leave-in conditioner, if your hair is drenched with clean water and conditioner it won’t absorb as much salt water or chlorine from the pool. summer hair care
- At least once or twice a week, give your hair a break from blow dryers, flat irons, and curling irons and apply a deep conditioning mask as treatment. summer hair care
- Don’t style your hair in really tight hairstyles, they tend to pull and tear hair, especially if it’s dry from the summer heat. Instead, go for a stylish messy braid or bun that is ideal for keeping your hair under control and minimizing exposure to the sun.
- Wash your hair less, frequent washing strips your scalp of its natural oils.
- To control frizz, make a mix of water, aloe vera, and avocado oil or argan oil. Keep it on hand and spritz whenever you need a bit of moisture and control.
- Use some coconut, olive, or avocado oil or shea butter to smooth, de-frizz, and moisturize your locks after shampooing. The oil will give some shine and, if you have wavy hair, create natural, air-dried curls. summer hair care
- Avoid pulling anything through your hair when it’s wet since that’s when it’s most susceptible to breaking. Wide-tooth combs are most gentle for untangling hair, as brushes can pull and tear your strands leaving them damaged.
