Summer is on full blast! That means basking under the sun, clad in the season’s boldly printed frocks, sipping a frozen mocktail, and snapping selfies at the beach as the wind whips through your hair.
However, the best parts of summer—sun, salt water, sand and the breeze—can wreak havoc on your hair during these hot months, leaving strands to be brittle, dry, frizzy, and greasy.
Good thing there are many ways to summer-proof your hair! Just follow these hair care tips:
Dampen hair with fresh water before dunking it in salt water.
Spray cold water on your tresses before taking a dip in the pool or ocean. Hair can only absorb so much water, so dampening it first with fresh water would limit the amount of saltwater and chlorine it can soak up. After swimming, rinse hair to keep it clean, fresh, and chemical-free.
Drink lots of water.
Sweating throughout summer can cause you to lose too many minerals that lead to dull, lifeless tresses. Keep yourself and your hair hydrated by drinking at least eight glasses of water, and by loading up on coconut water or fruits with high water content such as watermelon and grapefruit.
Turn down the heat.
The intense heat from constant blow drying or heat-styling dries out your hair shafts and sets them up for breakage. This summer, resort to air-drying your hair to keep it healthy and to reveal its natural texture.
Condition every day.
Conditioner for hair is like water for the body—you need it on a daily basis. Not only does it keep the moisture in your locks, it also gives you that messy, wavy beach hair that's perfect for a photo-op. A fresh hydrating conditioner like Cream Silk Fresh Hydration provides the shine and strength to revitalize your summer-scorched hair. It keeps your hair feel fresh up to 24 hours, without the greasy feel. Plus, it's formulated with a special Hydra-Collagen Complex that seals in water to hair strands, keeping hair smooth, hydrated and healthy—and not to mention, selfie-ready.
