Summer is by far my favorite time of year. I could lay in the sun for hours (I don’t though since I don’t want my skin to look like a leather handbag)
Summer can be rough on your hair, the beach, pool, sun, etc…
Here are a few easy things you can do to protect your hair before it is too late and need a serious haircut!
* For some extra conditioning – apply conditioner or oil (such a Moroccan oil) to damp/dry hair before bed and put in a bun or ponytail. Rise out in the morning when you take your shower.
*Before you take a dip in the pool or ocean, either wet your hair or apply conditioner. This way your hair won’t absorb as much pool or salt water.
*Look for hair products that contain UV protection. It is just as important to use UV protection on your hair and scalp. I can’t tell you how many people burn their scalp. It gets all red, can be pretty painful, then peels and looks like dandruff. Gross. The UV protection will also help keep your color looking great. L’Oreal Professionnel has a great line with UV protection in it.. Including masks, shampoos, etc…
*Summer is also a great time to play with your hair’s natural texture. Give it a break from the flat irons, curling irons, and blow dryers. Try letting it air dry. Apply some nice leave-in conditioner, an anti-frizz product, or some Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. Braid your hair, put it in a cute side bun or low pony. It will look cute and different and also give your hair a much-needed break.
