Easy Summer Hacks for Healthy Hair

It’s an unsaid rule that natural hair rules in the summer. Now’s the time to let go of your perfect, sleek hairdos and embrace the natural, loose styles of summer. It’s important to protect your hair from the damaging UV rays, heat, and humidity without having to rely on harsh chemicals.

Here’s some great tips to keep your hair healthy all summer long while keeping it natural

Try Loose, Comfortable Hairstyles. A messy braid or bun is perfect for keeping your hair under control, minimizing sun exposure, and right in there with the cutest trends. Tight hairstyles can be damaging since they tend to tear and pull hair, especially if your hair is already dry from the summer heat.

Go Easy on the Shampoo. Frequent shampooing causes the natural oils to be stripped from your scalp. This is turn stimulates oil production, makes your hair oily, and makes you want to washi it even more. Try just rinsing in the shower after a day at the beach or pool.

Rinse Before Swimming. When you rinse your hair with regular tap water before going into a pool, the water acts as a deterrent from harsh chemicals getting absorbed into your hair. You’ll still have exposure but not as much as if you went in with dry hair.

Reduce the Heat. Try naturally drying your hair as much as possible. Cut down on the hair dryer, flat iron, and curling iron heat and instead use the natural sun to air-dry your hair as much as possible. If it’s not an option, then use as low of settings as you can. Your hair is already exposed to a significant amount of heat just from the hot summer sun.

Replace Your Brush with a Wide-Tooth Comb. Avoid pulling anything through your hair when it’s wet because that is when it’s most prone to breaking. Wide-tooth combs are gentle on the hair and best for getting out those tangles. Brushes can pull and tear as they are pulled through the hair.

Don’t be Afraid to Cover Up. If you have sensitive hair or know you’ll be in the sun at the hottest point of the day, use a scarf or hat to cover your head. Not only does it help to retain moisture to your scalp but it also provides important UV protection. A loose hat reduces damage caused by wind, and both a scarf or hat protects color-treated hair and helps your color last longer.

If your hair need some extra conditioning or love this summer, ask your stylist which products will work best for your needs and hair type.
