We all want that perfect summer, beach hair that looks sassy, but in reality, our hair takes a beating during the heat of summer. We all love the long hot days but most of us despise what the high humidity can do to our hair, even straight hair tends to go fizzy during the heat of the day. Here are a few tips and guidelines to survive this summer.

Leave-In Conditioners 

Give them a try this summer. Leave-in conditioners are mostly water-based so they won’t weigh your hair down or leave your hair feeling greasy by midday. Not many of us know this but leave-in conditioners are packed with ceramides that help repair damaged hair. Leave-in conditioners work well with chemically treated hair and help control frizz caused by the humidity in the air. So you will be able to enjoy the sun while taking care of your hair.

Argan Oil 

Spending the day at the beach? Add some Argan Oil to your towel-dried hair and tie it up and tucking it under a hat for the day. Argan oils naturally moisturize your hair and tame the frizz. Leaving your hair in better condition for the next day.

Colour Down

Some of us have the theory of changing our hair colour to warmer and darker in the winter and we tend to go lighter for the summer months, but colour experts advise to avoid over lightening and bleaching during summer months. The sun naturally lightens hair and could cause damage to already lightened hair. Colour experts recommend to colour down your hair during summer, allowing the sun to naturally lighten hair adding those sun-kissed highlights.

SPF Your Hair 

While we all should protect our skin from the sun, and especially during the summer, investing in SPF hair products are just as important to protect your hair from the damaging effects of the sun on your hair and scalp. 

Wash Less

With all the damaging effects that come along with long hot days, consider washing your hair less and allowing your natural hair oils to penetrate into the hair shaft, lessening the damage. Hair usually dries out and becomes more brittle from the sun. Natural hair oils are important for healthy hair and keeping your hair naturally shiny all through this summer.
