Win the Battle of Winter Frizz

Summer Hair Care Guide

As summer approaches, it’s a good time to talk about summer hair care. This is a unique season in hair maintenance, because we tend to spend more time outdoors. From the increase in humidity causing frizzy hair, the water from pools and the beach drying it out, and the strong summer sun fading your color, we have a lot stacking up against our hair. Most of us can’t go running to the salon every time our hair misbehaves, so today we’ll talk about our top tips for summer hair care. 

Cover up. Wear a scarf or hat to cover your head when you spend lots of time outdoors. Not only will this provide extra UV protection, it will also help your scalp to retain important moisture. A hat can reduce the damage caused by wind and protect your hair color as well.

Style loosely. Loose, messy braids are a great way to keep your hair under control while minimizing sun exposure. Braiding or styling too tightly can pull and tear your hair, especially if it’s already dry from the summer heat.

Limit washing. Washing your hair too often can strip your scalp of its natural oils, which actually causes excess oil production and makes you think you need to wash it even more. This can become a never-ending cycle that will cause hair to look oily while also becoming dry. No thanks! Try going longer between washes, and use a good dry shampoo in between to keep your hair looking fresh.

Protect from chlorine. This is essential, especially if you have blonde hair. Chlorine can cause blondes to turn a shade of green that you probably didn’t bargain for. To avoid this and other issues, rinse your hair with fresh water before jumping into the pool. Your hair will soak it up and leave less room for the chemical-laden pool water. After your swim, shampoo and condition as soon as possible to ensure the chemicals don’t sit on the hair for too long.
