Summer is synonym of vacations, trips and hot days of lots of fun! However, hair care never rests and should still be reinforced during the hottest season of the year, after all, this is the time when the strands suffer the most aggression. Check out some tips to keep your hair healthy during the summer.
With the routine of beach, pool, sun and lots of wind, hair ends up getting more brittle and dry, so it needs an extra dose of hydration. To cleanse your hair, prefer milder products, free of parabens, salt and sulfates, complementing them with a more moisturizing conditioner.
UVA and UVB rays can stimulate the loss of keratin, causing oxidation, loss of color and dryness of the hair. To avoid this and even help hydration, apply a leave-in with a protection factor, so you create a film on the hair shaft. Reapply the product every time you get out of the water.
Exaggerating sun exposure can burn not only the strands, but also the scalp, which is usually a more sensitive region and can even flake off. To avoid this, try to wear caps and hats during times of high sun exposure and avoid excessive use of hair dryers and hair straighteners.
Since the tendency is for hair to become drier and duller during the summer, avoid washing your hair with hot water, which further stimulates these two aspects. Warm or cold water can be your best friend, restoring the hair’s natural shine.
Pay attention when combing the strands and when detangling them, use a wide-toothed wooden comb, especially if you have thicker hair. Curly and frizzy hair should be styled while still wet, while straight hair can be styled when it is dry.
So, what care do you take with your hair during the summer? And which ones will you adopt from this post we created?
