Summer is all fun and games until you come home with bushy hair and a bristly scalp. But does that mean no more impromptu beach dates or picnics in the park? -Hell no!
This summer will be all about velvety and luscious hair that everyone will be jealous of. We have listed 7 pro tips to maintain a healthy and shiny mane all summer long, no matter what your hair type.
1. Make Sure Your Hair Gets Adequate Vitamins, Minerals & Amino Acids.
If you are looking for stronger, softer, and shinier hair, you have to nourish your hair and scalp -You can start with a biotin hair care plan.
This has been reviewed as the ultimate gamechanger for people who struggle with maintaining a proper hair care routine.
Biotin contributes to healthy hair, skin, and nails. You can get the Super Greens or Everyday Wellness food supplements that will increase hair growth, reduce hair fall, and even get rid of brittle nails.
We all know how important Vitamin-B is for our hair and this biotin enriched product is the optimum source of nourishment for your hair as well as skin. I simply love how easy this product has made my summer hair care routine.
2. Trim Those Dead Split Ends
Split ends get damaged more and more every time due to sun exposure. This can lead to dryness or thin and lifeless hair ends. To enhance healthy hair growth simply trim off fine ends and see visible results.
You can also get a new haircut since summer is all about trendy hairstyles. Get creative and try a new look. I’m sure it will make one hell of an Instagram pic!
3. Nourishing Shampoo and Deep Condition
If you think it is okay to use the same hair care products every season, you could not be more wrong.
Get a nourishing shampoo that complements your hair type and you’ll instantly feel the difference. Heat and sweat may often cause frizziness and you may often get rashes in your scalp. So, it is important to use the right products for the season.
For the summer use shampoos and conditioners that are hydrating and provides a protective shield against the harsh UV rays, dust, and sand that inevitably will be part of our summers.
Gently massage shampoo onto the scalp area for a thorough cleanse and spread the remnants across your hair without drying them out with excessive shampoo. Finally, deep condition and rinse. You are all set for a bouncy and feathery soft hair.
Pro tip: If you have kinky curls, shampoo before going to bed. The hair will set overnight and you’ll wake up looking fresh.
4. Goodbye To Straighteners And Curlers
Unless you are determined to damage your hair, steer clear of straighteners or curlers. It’s summer for crying out loud! Let your gorgeous hair air dry and go au naturel.
Summer heat dries out your tresses anyway. So, no matter how tempted you get to straighten or get beachy curls, please say “no” to any extra heat. It will just RUIN your hair.
Pro tip: If you have curls or super voluminous hair, you can blow them dry using the “cool” setting.
5. UV Protect Your Hair
You thought only your skin needs an SPF shield? -Wrong!
Summer sun strips your hair off of its natural oils that give your hair that shiny appearance. So, just like your skin, protect your scalp and hair from the scorching heat. Use sun protection products for your hair before stepping out. You can find some good quality scalp sunscreens in Sephora.
But remember to apply sparingly. It’s not hair gel and you don’t want sticky hair. Just gently run it all over your tresses and you should be good to go.
6. Choose Hairstyles Wisely
Can we please keep the tight buns and knotted braids for winter?
Summer is for fluffy, breathable, and chic hairdos. Try loose braids and buns. Invest in a hydrating hair mist to keep your hair fresh and flowy. If you are in the mood for a DIY session, a diluted aloe vera gel can help fight the frizz.
Pro tip: If you can, avoid bleaching your hair during summer. It causes more heat damage and strips off your hair of essential oils.
7. Hot Oil Massages And Hair Packs
Do not underestimate the power of a good oil massage. Although you might think your hair gets oily anyway, it is important to nourish your scalp and roots with healthy nutrients. So, once every 2 weeks, apply olive oil, coconut oil, or argan oil and keep it for 30 minutes, followed by shampoo and conditioning.
Your hair will thank you for that. You can also apply some DIY hair packs once or twice a month. My personal favorite is 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and one-third of avocado. This enhances hair growth, adds shine, and hydrates your hair.
Honestly, sun-soaked beach vibes and golden tans are what we live for during summer! So, start these 7 hacks and kiss goodbye to frizzy, dull, and wispy hair.
Don’t hide your gorgeous locks under scarves and hats. Let your hair flow and your skin glow under the dazzling sun.
Let your hair breathe the breezy summer air because this summer will be all about good hair days.
