The summer sun, the chlorine in swimming pools or the salt water of the ocean take a toll on our hair. Luckily, protection and care are easy. Hats are beautiful, stylish, and they protect the hair from UV light. For fun times you should avoid rigid hairstyles and a lot of styling products. We show hairstyles for your favourite summer activities and suggest light styling and hair care products for hot summer days.

Summertime Hair Products: Hair Oil
Hair oil can be beneficial not only for thick dry hair. It also prevents and treats sun damage. Just a small amount of hair oil can prevent the hair from drying out. With the right strategy, hair oil brings out the best qualities in the hair of every woman. Of course, the right strategy is important.
Use three to four drops of hair oil for thick hair. No more than one to two drops are needed for fine hair.
Method 1: Apply the hair oil to the hair ends before the shampoo and allow it to work for a few minutes. Then rinse your hair and shampoo as usual. Your hair will be clean and fit for a sizzling summer day.
Method 2: Apply the hair oil as finishing touch. The oil serves as shield to prevent the hair from drying out in the summer sun and heat. Distribute the hair oil in the palm of your hands and apply it to the hair ends.
Use only one of the two methods at a time and per day.

After a long day at the beach or pool-side, wash your hair to remove all residual salt or chlorine. A conditioning hair rinse prepares your hair for another day outdoors. You will enjoy the uplifting fragrances of summer hair care products such as pomegranate, goji berry or coconut.
