Your Summer Hair Care Routine< All Posts
You just got past the dry winter air damaging your hair, and now you're worried that summer's going to take its own toll. True, summer brings special challenges, but we're here to get your summer hair care routine in order.
Some of the most common summer hair concerns include:
- Swimming: Salt from ocean water pulls out the water from your hair, and chlorine strips the natural oils from your hair. For blondes, chlorine pools also deposit copper and other chemicals, giving you a greenish cast.
- Frizz: If your hair is dry, it will soak up summer humidity from the air, giving you frizzy, uncontrollable hair.
- Sun Stress: Just like your skin, your hair can fall victim to sun damage. Color treated hair is most susceptible, but any hair can get stressed from the sun.
Luckily, there are some easy changes to your summer hair care routine that can help protect those beautiful tresses.
Use Sun Protection
A hat is a great option when you're going to be outside, especially one with a wide brim that also protects your ears and scalp, but that's not always an option. And even shorter times in the sun can cause damage. Get in the habit of using hair products that have UV filters to protect from damage and keep your color from fading. These are available in creams, gels, and sprays, so you can easily find something to fit your styling needs.
Wet Your Hair Before Swimming
Rinse your hair with fresh water before jumping in the pool or ocean. If it's already wet, it won't absorb as much salt or chlorine. Also, always rinse your hair after swimming. You can bring an extra water bottle if there's not a convenient shower.
Skip The Heat
When possible, skip the hot styling tools in summer. Think about washing your hair before bed and sleeping in braids for fresh, beach waves. Take advantage of casual summer outings with a cute ponytail instead of fighting against frizz with a flat iron.
Condition and Strengthen Your Hair
You're likely to wash your hair more often, thanks to that summer heat and sweat. Use a clarifying shampoo once a week, but follow it with a moisturizing conditioner. The rest of the week, make sure you're using a nourishing shampoo and conditioner.
