Summer Hair Tips

Summer sun, heat, humidity, and chlorine from the pool can damage your hair's cuticle and result in dry, drab, split, brittle or frizzy hair and ends.

Limit your time outdoors. Spending a lot of time outdoors in the sun can both dry out and damage your hair. Split ends are especially a problem during the summer. To avoid them, you should have your hair trimmed on a regular basis during the summer months. Most hair stylists recommend getting your hair cut every six weeks. By getting your hair trimmed often, you can eliminate a lot of split ends and damaged hair. You should also purchase a leave in conditioner for your hair if you will be exposed to the sun for several hours. There are many hair products available that contain SPF protection for your hair and scalp. If you have color treated hair, using a conditioner with SPF protection will prevent your hair color from fading.

Use hair products that contain SPF protection. Hair can get sunburnt just like the scalp. Hair products that contain moisturizers and SPF protection will work wonders for your hair. Hair can get sunburnt just like the scalp. If hair becomes severely burnt, you will have to trim the damaged sections off.

Do not use peroxide. Stay away from hair lighteners that contain peroxide. Peroxide can cause damage to your hair and change the color drastically.

Take special care of color-treated hair. Hair that has been dyed or highlighted is especially prone to UV damage. Color-treated hair is already damaged, the sun will make the cuticle even rougher which makes hair more fragile and dried out. Take care of color-treated hair by deep condition your hair using a product containing keratin, jojoba oil, wheat germ protein or other natural ingredients that increase moisture, shine and elasticity.

Wet your hair before swimming in a pool. If your hair is wet before you enter a pool, it won't soak up as much chlorine.
