8 Ways to Keep your Hair Protected this Summer

8 Ways to Keep your Hair Protected this Summer

Looking after your hair is crucial, especially during the summer. The combination of sun, heat, chlorine and salt water can be super damaging to your hair and leave it dry, brittle, and prone to breakage. We have put together a list of tips to follow to ensure your hair remains healthy, shiny and beautiful all summer long. Remember, healthy hair is not just about appearance; it’s about maintaining its strength and resilience from within. So, give your hair the care it deserves and let’s dive into the best ways to protect your hair this summer!

Stay Hydrated

WHY: Hydration is key for overall health, and its especially important for maintaining soft and shiny hair.
HOW: Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Struggling to drink enough? Try setting alarms to remind you to drink or even invest in a fun water bottle to motivate you.

Limit heat styling

WHY: Excessive heat can cause permanent damage to your hair, resulting in dryness, weakness and split ends.
HOW: Embrace your natural texture and opt for some heat-free styles. Check out our blog post and learn more about The Beauty of Heat Free Styling.

UV Protection

WHY: Just like your skin, your hair need protecting from the sun’s harsh rays to prevent dryness and weakness.
HOW: Use our Miracle Milk; a leave-in treatment and UV protection. This hero product will protect your hair from the UV rays while providing your hair with extra hydration.

Regular Trims

WHY: Regular trims help prevent split, dry ends and keep your hair looking healthy and neat.
HOW: Schedule a trim for every 6-8 week. Even a small trim can make a big difference in maintaining the overall health of your hair.

Silk Pillowcase

WHY: Regular cotton pillowcases absorb moisture from your hair and skin and cause friction between your hair and the pillowcase resulting in breakage and frizz.
HOW: By switching to a silk pillowcase, you are avoiding these problems and are keeping your hair hydrated, smooth and more manageable.

Deep Conditioner Regularly

WHY: The summer elements can cause your hair to become dry and frizzy.
HOW: Use a deep conditioning treatment, like our Miracle Mask, once a week to replenish moisture and repair any damage.

Rinse Hair After Swimming

WHY: Chlorine and salt water can strip all the natural oils from your hair and leave it super dry and brittle.
HOW: Rinse your hair with fresh water immediately after swimming to reduce the damage caused.

Protective Hairstyles

WHY: Tight hairstyles can cause breakage and stress on your hair; especially when it’s already vulnerable due to the sun.
HOW: Opt for loose hairstyles like braids, buns, or ponytails to minimise tension and keep your hair looking healthy.
By following these simple yet effective steps, you can enjoy healthy hair all summer long! The sun, chlorine, and salt water can all cause significant damage, but with the correct care and protection, you can prevent dryness, breakage, and weakness. Here’s to a summer of great hair days!
