It is normal to worry about how the sun can damage our skin during the summer months, but what about our hair? Our locks can take on a lot of stress from UV rays, chlorine, and saltwater as we soak up the outdoors. Continue reading to discover more ways to maintain beautiful, healthy hair all summer long!
Get A Trim
Even if you’re not looking for a huge summer hair change, getting a trim will give you a great start to healthy hair for the entire season. Trimming even a few inches of hair will help refresh your look and remove split ends that will continue splitting if not removed.
Frustrating frizzy hair that many experiences during the summer is often a result of dry hair soaking up humidity from the air. By keeping hair hydrated, you’ll help the cuticle remain closed and help keep hair smooth and flawless!
Using products designed to filter UV rays helps protect the hair shaft from literally burning up under the sun. Products that protect from harmful UV rays come in many forms that are suitable for any type of hair. Blocking these rays can also keep colored hair vibrant longer, as well! Of course, when you’re out in the sun for long periods of time, a head covering is the best protection!
Hydration is important all year long, but especially during the summer! Our overall health definitely affects our hair health and if our bodies aren’t properly hydrated, our hair won’t be either! Gage your hydration needs by starting with the standard 8 glasses of water a day and reduce or add more as needed.
