Summer Hair Care Tips to Keep Your Tresses Healthy and Gorgeous All Summer Long!
Did you know that the same way the sun damages your skin is the same way it can damage your hair too? Also, if you’re hitting swimming pools and beaches a ton in the summer, saltwater and chlorine can take a toll on your tresses. This is why a few weeks into summer, many people end up with hair that practically looks fried.
When you’re out under the sun or in hot weather for extended periods, the ultraviolet rays of the sun actually “cook” the shaft of your hair. The damage this causes is most visible on hair that’s been color-treated as you’ll notice it begins to fade, bleach, or become brassy.
Even if you haven’t had a dye job, your hair will still suffer from sun-induced damage and stress. UV rays dry out hair in general and rough up the normally smooth cuticle or outer layer of your hair shaft.
This will get rid of any split ends and refresh your hairstyles. You may end up needing a mid-season trim too because, at times, hair really does grow faster in the summer.
2. Shield your strands from the sun:
There are hair products (moisturizers, sprays, styling products) that contain UV filters. Switch to these in the summer and use them in your hair as often as possible (daily is best). These products will protect your hair from sun damage and if you have color-processed hair, they will keep it from fading. If you’ll be spending lots of time outdoors, wear a wide-brimmed hat. Not only will it keep your strands from getting scorched, but it will also protect your scalp and ears, areas that are vulnerable to skin cancer.
Drenching your hair with clean water or leave-in conditioner before diving in will prevent it from absorbing as much saltwater or pool chemicals. It’s also a good idea to rinse your hair after a swim. Alternatively, keep a spray bottle filled with fresh water with you and give your hair a healthy spritz once you come out of the water.
You’ll need a super-duper moisturizing shampoo and conditioner in the summer. This is because you’ll most likely be washing your hair more frequently to deal with summer sweat and grime, and you don’t want to be stripping your hair off excess moisture in the process. Wash your hair with a clarifying or anti-residue shampoo once a week to clear away product buildup and chemicals. Follow this with a deep- conditioning treatment to add an extra dose of moisture to your hair.
The Bossette Hair Set is the perfect moisturizing hair care system for the summer. With key product ingredients like Moroccan oil and Jojoba oil, using our hair care collection will keep your hair clean, hydrated, healthy, and looking gorgeous all summer long!
In the summer, you’ll want to take regular breaks from blow dryers, flat irons, and curling irons. Pick up a few heatless styling techniques in this season and you can easily make those work with cool accessories like a thin headband or pretty barrettes.
Keep your hair healthy and well-maintained—that’s your best bet when it comes to fighting frizz in the summer. Along with regular trims and conditioning, a drop or two of an anti-frizz oil or serum can help smooth your hair and add shine to it. But remember that with oil, a little will always go a long way, or else you’ll end up weighing down your hair, especially if it’s fine or limp.
