Summer is finally on its way! – Which means longer sunny days and rising temperatures are right around the corner! As you swap your chunky sweaters and coats for lighter fabrics and summer dresses, it’s time to also think about your hair too. Although summer is one of our favorite seasons, it can also be harmful to your hair.
But fear not! Here are a few ways you can take the proper precautions to keep your hair safe and protected.
Fight Hair Frizz
Frizzy hair is not what anyone wants for their hair, especially curly hair! If you have curly hair, you already know that the summer heat is your enemy. What’s the solution to combat frizz? Switch up your summer hair care regimen with a collection of products designed for your hair.
Use sulfate-free shampoos, as they are more gentle on the hair and scalp. Only shampoo when your hair needs it. If you have curly hair, consider skipping traditional shampoo and stick with a cleansing conditioner full of moisturizing ingredients.
Go Easy on the Heat Treatments
Using curling irons or straighteners are sure ways to add insult to injury with the summer heat. Ideally, you should try to minimize heat styling all the time, but heat treatments in the summer are definitely won’t do your hair any favors.
If you’re not a fan of your hair air-dried, give yourself a blowout using the cool setting on your hairdryer.
Lock in Moisture
Having dry hair during the summer can be one of the biggest burdens. You will need all the moisture you can get – which is no problem when you have a solid routine of hydrating products. A good hair mask and leave-in conditioner is a great place to start!
Trim Your Hair
The ends of your hair take a lot of beating during the summer, and you’ll probably see split and dry ends. Summer is the ideal time to give yourself a new look, but if you don’t want to lose your gorgeous locks, opt for a small trim. This will take care of your ends and bring your hair back to life.
