3 Rules of Summer Hair Care

Hair styling for events

With summer just around the corner, many are ditching our winter beauty skin care routines and swapping them out for beachy hair, sunscreen, and several pairs of flip flops. But when it comes to summer hair care, many don’t realize that there’s many a woe that comes with summer tresses. Heat from the sun actively works to degrade the protective protein coat on your hair. This ultimately oxidizes the color and leaves it looking dull and feeling brittle. To make matters worse, UV rays, humidity, chlorine, and saltwater can all have extremely negative effects on your hair, leaving it dry, frizzy and in need of serious care.
Whether your hair is au naturel or you have hair highlights, a good summer hair care routine is essential to having lovely locks. Check out these essential hair care tips:

Protect Your Color
In order to prevent your highlighted from becoming brassy and lackluster, create a layer of SPF for your head via a wide-brimmed hat or an SPF-resistant fabric. You can also protect your hair with a protective hair spray.

Fight Frizz and Dryness
Summer has the tendency to make hair both frizzy and dry. Getting a hot oil treatment at home or at your local hair salon will help to enrich your hair with healthful oils that will prevent it from drying out and becoming brittle.

Take Care of Swimmer’s Hair
Before swimming, be sure to prep your hair. Try a pre-swim cream that will not only protect your hair from the sun but will keep it safe from chlorine. When you’re in a pinch, experts recommend running your hair under tap water, as it will prevent your hair from absorbing the chlorine.

Don’t Wash Every Day
Washing your hair every day will dry it out immensely. Instead, wash your hair every other day, and use dry shampoo inbetween.
