A Guideline to Having Healthy Summer Hair
In winter, it is almost impossible to dream of pool parties, summer concerts, and ice-cold drinks on the patio. Disappointingly, summer brings with it sun, sweat, and chlorine, which can wreak havoc on the hair. Luckily, you don’t have to stay indoors all summer long because you want to keep your hair healthy. By following this guide, you will be able to protect your hair from sun damage and have fun in the summer.
It’s going to be easier if you start with new trim. For a start you can begin your summer season with healthy hair as it has been found to be effective in protecting your hair from sun damage. Doing this is simple as you only need to visit your stylist for a trim. In so doing, any split ends that would become split ends with time are cut off. However, this is only effective if you get the trims on a regular basis. You can also talk to them about how to care for your particular hair care needs this summer. They may be able to suggest a haircut that’s easier to take care of.
Stay cool. Although you may enjoy all the warmth summer brings, your hair will not. It gets even worse when it is paired with extra heat from your styling tools. Do not give in to the temptation of using curling irons, straighteners and blow dryers. Give your hair enough time to dry completely. If it is absolutely necessary that you use heat styling, try keeping the temperatures low. If you are using a blow dryer, the recommended temperature level is to constantly keep it at the medium levels. Always a have a heat protectant hair product with you.
Water is going to make a whole lot of difference. When wet, hair acts as a sponge. You would not believe how much water is held in the open cuticles on your hair. That includes all the chemicals and salt when you decide to jump into a pool or the ocean. Get rid of this by using water. You should rinse your hair with tap water before you go swimming or if you’re outdoors already, use bottled water. Your hair will absorb all the water and fill up the space so tat no room is left to accumulate the dirt.
Just like your skin, your hair and scalp need sunscreen too. The damage of UVA and UVB rays is underrated but it could be more serious depending on your hair type. These rays also oxidize the color job you have done on your hair.
