Keeping hair healthy always takes work, but summer sun, chlorinated pools, salty water, and humidity can make maintaining healthy hair a tough task in the summer. With the right care and products, you can keep your clients’ hair healthy and beautiful all year long. Continue reading to learn tips for keeping hair in excellent condition that you can use for yourself, your friends, or your clients.
Shampoo cleans the oils out of hair. However, when the heat, pool, and sun are already doing that task, shampoo may not be necessary. Consider shampooing less frequently or switching to a moisturizing shampoo that helps keep hair from becoming brittle.
Heat and sunshine dry hair out, so it is important to provide it with extra moisture. Condition when you shampoo and use leave-in conditioners or deep conditioning treatments when an extra boost of moisture is required.
Leave It Natural
Hot styling tools are damaging to hair, especially when hair is already stressed by summer. If you must use heat in your hairstyling, make sure to use a protective spray before you get to work.
Shield from the Sun
The sun can fade hair color, dry out hair, and burn the scalp. Consider a hair sunscreen to keep hair healthy. You can use regular sunscreen in a pinch, though an extra washing may be required afterwards. A hat also provides great coverage without any greasiness.
Regular trims help keep hair healthy, but daring cuts may not be the best choice during the summer, especially on curly hair. Extra humidity can produce a huge bounce after a cut that makes hair appear shorter or fluffier than intended.
