6 Tips For Taking Care Of Your Hair In The Summer
Summer can come with challenges for your hair. It takes a little bit more effort to keep it glam and healthy. Here are a few tips to take care of your hair in the summer:
Avoid Sunlight And Chlorine
The two big enemies of your hair in summer are: scorching heat and chlorine. Avoid them as much as you can.
The UV rays and the heat coming from the sun not only affect your skin, but also dries out your hair making it lose its luster. Moreover, the sunlight, as warm and welcoming as it is, could make your color-treated hair lose its hue.
Chlorine and ocean salt naturally dries your hair and your frequent swimming can make your hair dry and coarse.
You can reduce the effects of chlorine with fresh water. Dampen your hair before diving in the swimming pool or ocean and this way the chlorine will absorb less into the pores of your hair. Also, you can apply some hair oil or a hair mask before getting into the salty water.
Cover Your Hair
You cannot put a cover on the sun but can cover your hair, which will reduce your exposure to the sunlight. Direct rays from the sun make your hair lose its shine and strip it of its natural oils.
Put on a trendy summer hat or a cool neutral shade scarf that’ll absorb less heat. This hack is also helpful in keeping your hair frizz-free. Also, do not tie your hair too tight in summers, as it’ll result in breakage.
Avoid Frequent Washing
Summer comes with sweat and dust making your hair look dull and weak. As a result, you start washing your hair too often, which can lead to the hair being dry, dull, and coarse. Therefore, avoid washing your hair frequently.
The key is to wash your hair once or twice a week, not more than that. And if you have a greasy scalp, use dry shampoo for the in-between days. It’s better to use oil on your hair and use a shampoo with deep-conditioning qualities.
Embrace The Natural Texture of Your Hair
Your hair has already been through a lot with the heat, the sun, the chlorine, chemical shampoos, do not put further pressure on your hair with the heat tools. After all, summer is all about loose beach waves.
For regular days, instead of blow-drying your hair and using a flat iron, apply some anti-frizz cream. The cream will give your hair an effortlessly smooth and frizz-free look. Apply the hair cream when your hair is still damp, and then go for a loose braid or ponytail for a more controlled look.
Trim Your Hair Regularly
Summer is the right time to get your hair trimmed. It is the middle of the year, and your hair growth is at its best. But obviously, you want healthy growth. Right? Therefore, trim your split ends and opt for a healthy look. Also, cutting your hair regularly will help get rid of the frizz and dryness.
