Summertime can be rough on your hair. Between all that excessive exposure to the sun, the humidity, and the heat, your hair's delicate balance of moisture can easily be thrown off. To keep those shiny locks looking lustrous all summer long, you'll want to solve these hair problems before they start! Follow these tips for a great season of beautiful hair.
Top It OffAn easy way to prevent overexposure, says Glamour, is to slap on a summertime hat. Prevention is your best friend when it comes to protecting that hair, so find a stylish hat to block the UV rays. Your hair will be spared from color-stripping rays (not to mention the wind!). Plus, you might love the new look!
Stay Cool in the PoolSwimming in all that chlorine can make your hair turn an ugly shade of green or gray (depending on what it started out as!) Don't let your need to stay cool trump your commitment to beautiful hair, not when you know how to protect it! Stock up on chlorine-removing hair care products to undo the damage and coat hair against further chlorine exposure. Check out the Aubrey Organics Swimmer's haircare line for effective products that will do just that.
Humidity-Proof StylingIf that summer humidity zaps all the life from your hair, just fool-proof your hairdo before you leave the house! Instead of styling and spraying the normal way, try out something easier to maintain all day long--like a quick twist or cute hair clip. You might also want to invest in humidity-proof or weather-proof hairspray from a brand like Garnier Fructis or Big Sexy Hair for just such an occasion.
Fight Dry, Frizzy HairThe summer heat might have the opposite effect of that moisture-building humidity. If you suffer from dry, frizzy hair all summer long, there are things you can do for this as well. First of all, skip the tanning sessions, which lead to very dry locks! You might also want to limit your use of the blow dryer or any other heated styling tools until the weather cools down, so you don't overdo the heat and fry your tresses. These can actually lead to breakage, another big summer problem! Leave those things behind and add in a hydrating conditioner to your routine to increase your summer heat protection.
With these tips, you'll leave all-too-common summertime hair problems behind you for good!
