Summer is here and you might have started feeling the heat already. While we all love the shining sun and enjoy spending our time near the pool or see, we forget about the adverse effects the blazing sun has on our precious hairs and in result, our tresses suffers from damages and roughness that we all want to avoid no matter what.
To avoid damage and “summer-proof” your manes take care of your hairs regularly so that you not only enjoy the sunny weather but at the same time can also enjoy “good hair” days.7
Ways to Keep Your Tresses Protected During Summer
1. Keep Your Hairs Clean & Fresh
During the hot seasons, your hair tends to attract more dirt, experiences super sweaty scalp, dandruff and build ups due to the increase in humidity and dust in the atmosphere and becomes limp, lifeless and unflattering. Also, sweaty scalp results in premature hair fall and would make your tresses lose their density in no time.
To get rid of this problem and also to make your hair look lively, bouncy and healthy even in the summer season, it’s extremely important that you wash your manes every day to keep them fresh, neat and clean as well as hygienic.
We would suggest you try this Herbal Essences Bio-Renew Coconut Milk Shampoo for your hair washing purpose as it not only cleans dirt, debris and make your scalp fresh but at the same time, this shampoo also infuses your locks with more moisture for more manageable manes.
2. Always Moisturize Your Strands
A moisturizing shampoo leads to our next point of keeping your tresses nourished and hydrated during the hot seasons because otherwise your manes will suffer from dryness from the sun exposure (sun dries out your manes pretty quickly) and will experience breakage which might lead to an un-uniform and brittle outlook.
To keep your mane nourished, you should use a hydrating, rinse-out conditioner like the Moroccan oil Hydrating Conditioner (which gives instant hydration, manageability and shine) after you shampoo each time so that your hairs are as soft as a feather even in the hottest and sweaty weather.
3. Don’t Forget Dry Shampoo
If you don’t want to wet wash your tresses every single day but still want to enjoy “fresh as a daisy” hair and maintain your scalps cleanliness and health, then there is nothing better than using a dry shampoo every now and then.
Hair experts suggest that you can use this Briogeo – Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo that has a combination of natural ingredients to absorb sweat and excess oils from your scalp and at the same time also nourishes your hair for a fresher outlook and “no limp” hairs.
4. Try to Avoid Swimmer’s Hair Damage
It’s only natural that during the summer all you want is to spend your time near the pool or dipping yourself in the cool, refreshing water of the pool or sea to beat that heat; but what you must know before going for that dip is that the chlorine in the pool water and the salt in the sea water tends to draw moisture and nourishment out of your skin and hair and make them very dry, rough and brittle.
But this drawback should not keep you away from the most fun activity of summer; what you can do to protect your precious manes from swimmer’s damage is that you can use a protectant spray like this Clarins SPF 30 Sunscreen Care Oil Spray before going for a refreshing dip in the water as it shields your luscious manes from the super damaging effects of the sun, salt and chlorine.
Also, when you are done with swimming and plunging in the water, don’t forget to take a bath with clean water and use this Oway Sunway after Sun Hair Mask to remove any traces of the oil spray, salt, and chlorine to enjoy damage-less hairs.
5. Cover Your Tresses With a Scarf or Hat
Wondering why your dazzling hair color is fading away so quickly or why your manes feel too dry and rough lately?
Well, that’s because you are hitting the road or just sitting near the beach without hiding your manes from the extremely damaging effects of the hot blazing sun of the summer. The UV rays from the sun penetrate your hair shaft and absorb the nourishment to make them dry, lifeless as well as frizzy.
One of the most effective ways to protect your tresses and scalp from the sun’s harmful ray is to fully cover them up with a gorgeous, stylish scarf or a fashionable hat (which you are comfortable with).
Covering your tresses not only protects them but also adds a new dimension to your outlook.
6. Use a Sunscreen for Hair
Using a sunscreen product on your hairs might seem different because we are so used to hear sunscreen for skin and face but trust us, it’s totally worth it. Sunscreen for the hair does exactly what it does for your skin; it protect your manes from the flaming sun of the hot season and hence, hair experts always advice to apply on some hair sunscreens before you even think of stepping out in the summer.
The PHYTO PHYTOPLAGE Protective Sun Veil might be a great choice for you as it not only provides the required sun protection to your manes but at the same time also nourishes them for a very healthy and outstanding outlook.
7. Get a Keratin Treatment
By now we all are well aware that blazing sun is extremely harmful and catastrophic for your hair and, if, by any chance your hairs are suffering even from the slightest damage from sun exposure, we would suggest you get an immediate keratin treatment from your hair salon.
Getting a keratin treatment from a hair expert would help you to revitalize and rehydrate your manes and bring them back to life while also relaxing your scalp for healthier tresses.
8. Use Hot Rollers for Your Summer Hairdos
Because it’s the hotter season of the year and your hair has the potential to face severe damage from the blazing sun doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t adorn your hairs with different hairdos; we suggest you opt for a heated roller set to style your tresses with different hairstyles (from small, tight ringlets to big, bouncy curls and sexy messy beach waves) in the summer to look stylish at the same time well-kept.
We are suggesting only hot rollers instead of other heated styling tools because hot rollers produce and supply comparatively less heat to your manes than other tools which have the potential to severely damage your hairs.
You might try using this INFINITI PRO BY CONAIR Instant Heat Ceramic Flocked Rollers as it has 12 different heat settings and is excellent for all types and lengths of hairs.
9. Try to Keep Your Manes Hydrated
The key to keeping your hair healthy, bouncy and manageable even during the hotter months of the year is to keep them well hydrated; hydration not only eliminates dryness, roughness and results in fewer split-ends but also helps you with the deep conditioning treatments you take for a fresh, non-greasy scalp.
We would recommend you use this professional grade amika Soul food Nourishing Mask to give your manes the shot of moisture they need in this sweaty season.
10. Drink Lots & Lots of Water
We all know that drinking lots of water in a day is extremely good for your health and body, but what we don’t know is that it also does wonders to your hairs; drinking enough water helps to keep your tresses and the scalp hydrated and also boosts the growth rate of your hair. Nutritionists suggest that you keep a water pot with you always and drink at least 3-4 liters of water each day to keep your hairs and skin hydrated and fresh.
