Expert Tips for Healthy Summer Hair
admin June 15 2021
For many people, summer means more time spent outdoors. The fresh air, sunshine, and exercise are excellent for your overall health, but overexposure to the elements can do a number on your hair. Sun damage, chlorine and other pool chemicals, and saltwater can leave your hair dry and brittle and your color dull and faded. Thankfully there are easy ways to combat the damage. Here are a few tips from the experts to keep your hair healthy without missing out on all the summer fun.
Get a Trim
You’ve heard it again and again, but we can’t stress enough how important regular trims are for the health of your hair. When you neglect trimming your hair you end up with dry, damaged, and split ends that break, tangle, and frizz. By keeping those damaged ends trimmed away your hair will look and feel healthier, and even appear to grow faster because it’s not breaking off.
Use The Right Products
Just like your wardrobe your hair care routine needs to be updated with the changing seasons. While winter calls for heavy conditioners with tons of moisture, summer calls for lighter and gentler products. You’ll be washing more often to keep your tresses clean and sweat-free, so choose a lightweight moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to keep hair soft and manageable without weighing it down. Once a week use a clarifying shampoo to remove chemical and product buildup and follow with a deep conditioning treatment to help prevent and repair the damage.
How to Protect Hair From the Sun
We know we need sunscreen to protect our skin, but did you know that your hair needs protection from UV rays too? But you don’t want to slather your regular sunscreen on your hair. That would leave you with a slicked-down, greasy-looking mess. There are products that are formulated specifically for use on your hair that block harmful UV rays the same way sunscreen does for your skin. A wide-brimmed hat offers even more protection when you’re enjoying a day outdoors.
How to Protect Hair From Swim Stress
Saltwater and pool chemicals cause a lot of stress for your hair. You can help ease this swim stress by coating your strands with a leave-in conditioner before you jump in. If your hair is saturated with a nourishing and moisturizing conditioner, it can’t absorb as much harmful stuff from the water. And always rinse your hair with cool clean water as soon as possible when you’re finished swimming for the day.
