Summer Hair 2020
While we are in the summer we know, the heat will attack our skin and body overall but what about our hair? The heat will attack our hair as well because the UV rays are stronger now. So how do we protect ourselves from these rays or sunshine will still doing our daily activities?
Here a few tips to maintain the health and longevity of your hair regardless of your hair length for the summertime.
Cleanse & Condition Frequently – Summer is the time that we head to the pools, rivers, lakes, and especially the beaches. However, these water bodies contain different elements in them that can cause more harm than good to our hair shaft. The chlorine strips the hair shaft of its natural moisture thus reducing the moisture barrier on the shaft so the chlorine can easily penetrate the hair. A way to combat this is by cleansing and conditioning frequently. The shampoo will remove any sediments that may have lodged unto the scalp or hair shaft. And the conditioner will replenish the moisture that was lost.
Deep condition regularly – I said because it is summer it is hot, right? Since the temperatures have risen your hair will get frizzier. Deep conditioning on a regular basis such as every week helps with your hair frizziness. The deep conditioner penetrates the hair shaft and adds moisture thus preventing the frizz due to lack of moisture. As well as, it adds to the health of our hair because valuable nutrients are being deposited into the hair shaft.
Heat protection – Just like how we wear sunscreen for our bodies to protect from the sun whenever we go to the beach, pool, or any other water bodies, we need that for our hair. Our hair needs to be protected from the dangerous UV rays of the sun. We can use our heat protectant spray that we use to flat iron or blow-dry our hair for this same purpose. It’s heated, isn’t it? You would just apply the spray to the hair depending on how much you need. The heat protection spray will reduce any frizz or fly-aways that you encounter while in the sun. As well as, any frizziness due to the heat.
Wear a hat – Wearing a hat keeps your hair and yourself cool during the summer. It prevents the heat from attacking the body so that you start sweating. As well as, no UV rays can touch the hair shaft and cause flyaways, frizz, and friction. You can wear sun blocker hats, sloggers or a regular old cap.
Wear Protective Styles – Protective styles are a must during the summer. You will get a break from combing or styling your hair into the normal wash and goes and twist outs. During the summer, the heat with your styles will may them become bigger, frizzier and need to eb restyled more often. Thus, giving you a break and a new look for the new season. You can wear wigs, braids, twists, or even a bun.
I hope these tips will help you to maintain the health of your hair during this hot season. Not that you should not care for your hair during all seasons but certain tips should be done to preserve it. Happy Summer!
