Summer is upon us and just like your hair needs specific care in winter, it also needs specific care in summer too. This is because hair contains 10 to 15 per cent water and on hot summer days, some of this water evaporates and causes your hair to dry out. It is vital to compensate for this moisture loss and keep your hair nourished so that it stays healthy and looks healthy. We’ve collected some tips on how to top up your hair’s moisture content even on the hottest of days and introduce you to our ‘secret weapon’.
Keep your hair moisturized this summer
These hair care tips keep your hair feeling fresh all summer.
Cooling Effect: After a long day in the sun, a hair mask soothes the scalp and conditions your hair. Different hair masks offer different benefits such as helping your color last longer and strengthening your hair’s structure, but all promise to rehydrate dry hair, which is just what you need after exposing it to the sun. Leave-in conditioners are also a great idea to ensure long-lasting hydration.
Prevent split ends: The summer heat can be especially hard on your hair and can cause it to become dry and split. A good way to prevent split ends is to get your hair regularly trimmed (around every 3-4 months) to keep it healthy. Make sure to cover your hair with UV-shielding hats or scarves when you’re in the sun and for extra protection, choose a hairstyle where you can ‘hide’ the ends of your hair. A bun hairstyle is perfect for this as you can push the ends into the bun and secure with the hair tie.
Stay hydrated yourself: You’ve probably heard a million times before how important it is to stay hydrated, but it’s so true! The human body is literally made of water and when it’s hot outside, it’s imperative that you drink more than usual. If you replenish the water your body loses through sweat, you ensure your body has everything it needs to create natural oils, which will then protect your hair.
Heat protection: Your hair will have more chance against the sun if it’s already well hydrated. If you use straightening irons or curlers on your hair all year round, you could be causing a lot of damage to the strands. A heat protection spray protects against the harsh heat and keeps the moisture locked in by creating a seal around the strands.
