Summer is here! But it’s no secret that all the fun under the sun takes a toll on our bodies. Our hair in particular, is something we often forget to give some TLC. We slather our skin with sunscreen, but how about our hair? How do you keep your crowning glory from getting damaged?
Your gorgeous locks deserve some love too, so, below, here are four easy ways you can keep your hair healthy and shiny this summer.
1. Moisturize and nourish with a hair mask.
Continuous sun exposure can leave your hair and scalp extremely dried. To keep this from happening, moisturize your hair weekly with a treatment mask. Oh and even if your hair isn’t dried out yet, you can take this as a good preventative measure!
2. Do not overwash.
Yes, it's hot and you probably want to take a cold shower twice a day. But keep in mind that overwashing can leave your hair stripped of all the natural oils. To avoid the temptation of overwashing, try spritzing some dry shampoo every other day to keep that crown fresh.
3. Apply protection if you're using heat-styling tools.
Applying heat directly to your strands can be super damaging so if you plan to use your hair dryers, flat or curling irons, prep your hair properly. Thankfully, there are hair primers made specifically for heat-styling. Be sure to protect your hair with a generous coat of these products.
4. Apply SPF.
Yes, believe it or not, there are SPF products for hair! They often come in a mist or an oil that protects your hair from UV rays and heat. The best part? They leave your hair glossy and shiny all day long!
