5 Ways to Care for Your Hair This Summer

HOW TO

If protecting your skin from sun exposure is a standard practice, then why isn’t it the same for hair? Here are our tips on how to keep your hair and scalp protected, all summer long.

In the summer our hair is more exposed to sunlight and other elements like salt water, chlorine, intense heat, wind and sand. Protecting our hair when we are on vacation is crucial, to prevent it from going dull, dry and brittle when we get back home. Read on for simple ways you can care for your hair in the summer: from a beach trip, to a daily hike, or just lounging by the pool.

GENTLE DRYING

When you have washed your hair, always use a gentle approach: do not wring your hair by pulling or rubbing with a towel. Let your hair dry naturally as much as possible and avoid using hair straighteners or dryers, or at very least, adjust the temperature to the lowest level.

TRY WEARING A BANDANA

  • Skip treatments right before going on vacation — Chemical hair treatments like bleaching can weaken and sensitize hair: it is best to wait until after your vacation.
  • Don't leave your hair down — It's not just a matter of convenience: if you have long hair it is best to keep it tied up, just not too tightly. Ponytails, buns or braids help defend the scalp from burns and prevent the hair from being damaged or tangled.
  • Skip the heat — Let your hair have a break from its winter routine, and try to embrace your natural texture!
