Are you looking for ways to keep healthy hair this summer? These seven ways will save your hair leaving you with a mane you can’t stop touching.
With summer knocking on our door, our hair is preparing for battle. Did you know our hair goes through more damage in the summer than the rest of the year? With the overexposure to harmful sun rays, sweat, sea salt, and chlorinated pool water, your hair is crying for help.
Although summer is a time for fun and relaxation, don’t skimp out on doubling up on hair care, and here’s why.
Trimming your hair at the beginning of summer will save you frustration down the road. With dead ends trimmed from the tips of your hair, you’ll avoid split ends, keeping your hair healthy and thick from root to tip.
Shampooing your hair daily is not recommended, but during the summer months washing your hair daily might be a must. If you feel like you need to shampoo your hair, choose a mild shampoo, and focus on cleaning the scalp.
Conditioning your hair like a pro is the best way to fight damaged hair year round, and its super simple. After washing your hair gently towel dry your hair and apply your conditioner and let it sit.
When your hair is wet its not as porous and will not absorb as much of the moisture as it will when its towel dried.
Summer provides enough damaging heat, adding to the heat can cause extensive damage down the road. Consider letting your hair air dry instead of using the blowdryer. You can use rollers for volume instead if the curling iron, and you can get blowouts instead of the flat iron.
If you must use your blow dryer, opt for the low or medium temperature setting and always remember to use heat protection.
Overnight is a prime healing time for our bodies, including our hair. Applying an overnight hair treatment will help lock in moisture giving your hair enough life to fight another day.
This sounds super simple but vitamins are often overlooked. A few Supplements to look for are:
If your hair is pulled back often you can develop traction alopecia. This means you’re losing your hair because you’re literally pulling your hair out. Try to wear your hair down more often, less tension the better. Also, wearing our sunglasses on our head is damaging to our hair. Try to avoid pulling your sunglasses on the top of your head.
I couldn’t leave you hanging and not give you a homemade mask for your hair. Natural conditioners will coat your hair shaft with protein leaving your hair shiny, full of body, and leave your hair more manageable.
If eggs and milk are not in your hair wheelhouse, you might like this mask I use often to help with my dry scalp.
