Summer Hair Protection
Summer is finally here and with this change in season and its beautiful golden rays, comes the need for extra hair protection! Unfortunately, the strong heat and UV rays can wreak havoc on your tresses—but thankfully, there are a number of things you can do to keep your hair healthy and shiny.
Shampoo and Condition Regularly
- Just like your skin tends to be more oily in the summer, so does your scalp. You may want to wash your hair more regularly this season to help remove build-up. Of course, to prevent dryness it is also essential to condition your hair. If you find yourself pressed for time however, simply dab a cotton ball in witch hazel (a natural astringent that will dissolve oil) and blot onto your scalp.
Battle Swimmer’s Hair
- Since avoiding pools are almost impossible (and undesirable), it’s important to stop chlorine from building up on your precious locks. Fortunately, there a secret no one tells you. Simply prep your hair before swimming by wetting your hair with tap water. Pre-wet hair will absorb much less chlorine than dry hair saving you much unwanted damage. Also, be sure to rinse your hair again post-swim to help remove any chlorine that has been absorbed.
Use a Hair Mask
- The heat of the sun tends to be very drying and in turn it’s essential to help your hair restore moisture. A weekly hair mask can be exactly what you need this season. The ‘Rescue Me Hair Mask’ by Leyla Milani Hair will deeply penetrate the hair cuticle, providing that lasting yet instant hydration and protection essential to the season.
Wear a Hat
- Just as they are trendy, the can help give your tresses a break! Invest in a few summer hats and rock them whenever you feel like your hair is taking a hit—or if you just want to play it vogue this season, the choice is yours!
