The high heat and humidity of the summer months can wreak havoc on your hair. UV radiation can roughen the outer hair cuticle, leaving your strands frizzy, dry, and damaged. Keep your hair healthy and shiny this summer with a few simple tips.
1. Start with a Trim
Split ends mean your strands are starting to unravel. The only way to prevent them from completely unraveling to your scalp is by trimming the end to seal the cuticle. On average, you must trim your hair every 8-12 weeks (or every 6-8 weeks for shorter styles). So, start the summer season right with a trim at your local salon.
2. Protect Your Tresses While Swimming
Saltwater and chlorine can penetrate the hair cuticle and damage the hair structure, leaving you with dry, dull hair prone to breakage. Before you go swimming, always wet your hair with fresh water. Because your hair can only absorb a certain percentage of moisture, presoaking it limits its exposure to damaging substances like chlorine.
3. Wash Using a Gentle Shampoo
Although you may be tempted to wash more often in the summer to remove sweat and grime, washing your hair too often can strip the scalp’s natural oils. If you must wash your hair daily, use a shampoo and condition with a gentle formula like FaceDoctor Hair & Scalp Doctor Shampoo and Conditioner.
FaceDoctor Hair & Scalp Doctor Shampoo and Conditioner contains sea buckthorn oil jam-packed with omega fatty acids, over 20 minerals, and 60 antioxidants to nourish your scalp and hair.
4. Skip the Heated Styling Tools
Your hair is more prone to drying out in the summer, and heated styling tools can exacerbate any dryness, leading to breakage. Avoid heated styling tools and air dry your hair instead. There are numerous heatless styling options, from Velcro rollers to Flexirods to Ribbon Wraps.
Always apply a heat protectant serum to your hair if you must use a curling wand, straightener, or blow dryer.
