While many of us remember to slather on sunscreen to protect our skin in the summer sun, we don’t always think about what our hair needs. Now that we're spending more time outdoors, our hair counts more than ever!
Chlorine, saltwater and sun are all drying, so when it comes to summer hair, the keyword is moisture. A lack of moisture in our hair can lead to split ends, breakages and dandruff, as well as an overproduction of natural oils to compensate for the dehydration.
We’re here to talk about how to protect, style and repair your tresses in any summertime situation.
Let’s get started!
Say hello to salt, sun, sweat and sand. You may have dreams of gorgeous mermaid beach waves but the sad truth is, more often than not, saltwater actually dehydrates your hair and scalp, stripping them of moisture and leaving your hair rough and frizzy.
Good news: A great day at the beach doesn’t have to mean your hair will be dry, rough or even brittle afterward.
Chlorine can be just as bad for your hair as saltwater, becoming the real villain of summertime fun. It strips your hair of its natural, protective oils, leaving it brittle and leading to breakages, and can cause mild to severe irritation on your scalp. Chlorine can also make your hair look dull and lifeless as well as fade the color of dyed hair.
You’re guaranteed to build up a sweat anytime you work out, but even more so if you choose to exercise outside when the weather’s nice. While you may have been able to skip washing your hair after a workout in AC, you might not be able to now. An excess buildup of sweat can clog the pores in your scalp if you don’t properly cleanse your hair after an intense workout.
Sometimes you just need to escape from it all and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. But just because you’re relaxing in nature, away from most, if not all, modern conveniences, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the health and quality of your hair. Nor should you.
With the sun on your face and the wind in your hair, all your troubles can simply wash away… while your hair slaps you in the face and tangles itself into an undividable knot.
Rather than struggle to detangle that mess at the docks, get ahead of the problem by putting your hair in a protective style before you step foot on the boat. There are a number of styles that won’t crimp your hair, so you can take it back down once you’re off the boat and it will look just as great as before!
