We are at the beginning of summer, the heat has already started in full swing, and the sun is threatening our skin and hair. However, we are fearless and prepared to enjoy the most beautiful season of the year with the following tips for protecting our hair during the summer in the city!
Tip 1: Cover up!
If you're walking around the city to run errands, cover your hair with a hat or scarf to protect it. This tip will help you maintain hydration in your hair by adding extra UV protection from the sun.
Tip 2: Use sunscreen for your hair
Before you leave the house, never forget to apply sunscreen to your face and body as you have heard millions of times from beauty gurus.
As hair experts, we also recommend using sunscreen for your hair. Definitely.
Tip 3: Proper and consistent hydration.
The summer heat will dry out and dehydrate your hair in no time. Hydration is something your hair needs all year round, but during the summer, it becomes more critical.
Start with the right shampoo and conditioner, do masks once a week at home and also at the salon for an extra boost. Also, have a leave-in conditioner and your sunscreen in your bag so you can apply them whenever necessary.
Tip 4: Don't use a hairdryer
During this season, you probably want to keep your hair as wet as possible to relieve you from the summer heat.
So, it's an opportunity to let your hair as free as possible.
You may not have a perfectly smooth and well-combed result, but it's summer and anything goes! If you follow the previous 3 steps, you won't have a problem with frizz.
You can also include some quality styling products to create various summer looks for your hair.
Tip 5: Use combs with widely spaced teeth to detangle your hair.
Because hair becomes more sensitive and easily damaged during summer, it's best to comb it with a "paddle" or a comb with widely spaced teeth to reduce breakage in the mid-lengths and ends of your hair.
The combing process should be done very carefully!
Tip 6: Only dry the shampoo.
We definitely don't want dry hair, but we also don't want oily or sweaty roots. Always have a dry shampoo handy to spray on your hair's roots whenever you feel you have sweated or if you feel oily.
Tip 7: Protect your hair color.
If you have dyed hair (especially blond), you need to be very careful. You must follow all the above steps to protect your hair, but you should use products specifically for dyed hair. You can discuss with your trusted hair stylist about personalized products you can use if you have dyed hair.
