Summer Hair Care Tips

Over exposure to the sun’s UV rays can potentially cause cellular damage that can speed up aging and possibly trigger cancer in your skin but it is essential that you protect your hair as well.  Sun damage to the hair can manifest as faded hair color, brittle and dry hair shafts and split ends.

The sun can cause color to fade fast, so it’s best to use a hair mask for intensive conditioning. Apply deep conditioner to wet hair and thoroughly comb it through before heading out to the surf or sun offers optimal protection. As temperatures rise and humidity increases, it’s time to ditch your heavy-duty winter conditioner for a lighter one.

Oils are also essential to smooth and repair locks and can be applied to wet or dry hair. A heat protection spray is a must-have holiday item to shield your hair from the sun’s damaging rays and cut down on frizz.

A good summer shampoo will help protect against not only UV damage but chlorine, too, for those dips in the pool.

During the warm-weather months, it’s best to limit your use of the blow dryer and flat iron. When the air is moist, it can take longer to style hair which can result in further drying and damage. Make sure to frequently trim your ends to prevent split ends from traveling up the hair shaft and damaging hair.
