7 Summer Hair Tips

 

Make sure to cover up! UV rays can damage your hair. Use a scarf or hat to cover your hair. Not only will it help keep your scalp moist but it will keep your hair from tangling on a windy day!

Keep it loose. Tight hairstyles can be hard on your hair especially during those dry days. Make sure to sport loose comfortable hair.

You don’t need to wash your hair constantly. Washing your hair strips the scalp of natural oils. If you feel the need to wash your hair just rinse it with fresh water or try to find a homemade or natural shampoo.

Skip using the brush when your hair is wet. Use a wide tooth comb instead. This is gentler on the hair and will still get those tangles out.

This may sound a bit strange but using sunscreen on your hair can help. After you’ve lathered up run your hands lightly through your hair. This will help protect your hair from getting scorched. You can also look into natural sunscreens (Elle Natural Sunscreens).

Olive, coconut, and avocado oils are good at penetrating the hair. Wash your hair like normal then oil from the ends to the roots. Rinse, then condition as usual. Your hair should feel moisturized afterward, but not greasy.

Give that blow dryer a break! It’s already warm outside so let your hair naturally dry. Chronic exposure to heat is bad for your hair and you’d only be doubling that during the summer months.
