Sure, dry hair sounds like more of a winter than summer problem, but hear us out! Your hair can get severely dried out from a number of different factors in the summertime. For example: sun exposure, chlorine, and even saltwater. Here’s how you can combat these and keep your hair hydrated this summer without sacrificing any fun!
Heat Style Less Often
We know how hard it can be to put down the blow dryer and curling iron, but this is important. If you can even just go a few days with your natural hair texture, it will do your hair a lot of good. If you really can’t stand how your hair looks, try some heatless hairstyles like braids or buns. The benefits to lessening heat styling are immeasurable!
Use a Heat Protectant
If you absolutely must heat style your hair, be sure to use an effective heat protectant. We recommend 3-in-1 Mist because it packs so many benefits into one bottle. Not only does it protect against heat, it also protects against UV rays and has detangling properties! It’s a must for your next beach day.
Brushing out your hair often helps distribute healthy oils from your scalp so they can moisturize your hair naturally. Be wary if you have naturally curly hair, however. If you have straight or wavy hair, this step is essential. We recommend brushing with a boar bristle paddle brush at least twice a day, especially if you have hair extensions.
Deep Condition Semi-Regularly
Deep conditioning is an easy way to rehydrate your hair quickly. However, you should make sure to check the ingredients and only use products that are free of sulfates and parabens. Sulfates and parabens actually dry out your hair and can even compromise your color! Luckily, the Hydrate Masque (formerly known as Intense Conditioner) is free of those harmful ingredients!
Drink More Water
This may seem like an odd inclusion on a list of hair tips, but it’s actually very important. If your body is hydrated, it’s easier to keep your hair hydrated. It’s really as simple as that. If you’re spending a long day out in the hot sun, be sure to fill your water bottle (or bottles) ahead of time!
Apply Smooth Serum
Smooth Serum is made with a super lightweight formula that moisturizes dried out hair without weighing it down like other hair serums. Apply it to damp hair after a shower or to dry hair as needed. It smells and feels fantastic so you’re practically guaranteed to get hooked and use it year-round!
Whatever your hair care regimen is, be sure to carve out some time and choose products specifically to keep your hair hydrated this summer. Follow these tips and you’ll have healthy, hydrated hair, no matter what the season!
