Summer Hair Care Tips

Summer is as hard on are hair as it is on our skin. I wanted to give a few pointers on summer hair cure and a homemade tricks that you can do at home.

  1. Wear a scarf, hat or cap to protect your hair from the sun but make sure that it’s not so tight that it will restrict circulation in your scalp.
  2. If you know you are going to be in the sun for a long time and if you don’t want to wear anything on your head, use a leave in conditioner with sunscreen in it before you go out.
  3. If you are outside and forgot to put leave in conditioner with sunscreen in your hair, you can put regular sunscreen in your hair, but make sure you rinse it out with a deep cleansing shampoo when you get home.
  4. Limit your use of “hot” items on your hair such as a blow dryers and curling irons.
  5. If you need to use a “hot” item, use a leave in conditioner before using the item on your hair.
  6. Avoid hot water hair wash, as the heat can damage your hair. Use cool water instead.
  7. Staying hydrated is important for healthy hair as well as your overall health, so make sure that you are taking enough water.
  8. Avoid hair products with formaldehyde or alcohol in it which dry out hair, try to use natural products that are gentler on your hair.
