Summer Proof Your Hair!


Summer is a great time to be playing in the pool or basking on the beach. But sun, heat and chlorine can really do damage to your ‘do. Here are 6 hot tips to beat the summer heat!

  1. If you’ve just colored your hair, mix some regular sunscreen and leave-in conditioner and apply the mixture with your fingers or a comb.
  2. Try to avoid using hair dryers or other heat-generating styling tools.
  3. Put your hair in a braid or pony tail. Less hair exposed is less hair damaged.
  4. Drink plenty of water.
  5. Before jumping in the pool, coat your hair with a natural oil, such as coconut oil, and then wash it as soon as you’re done swimming.
  6. If you don’t have time to prepare, always keep a great summer hat in your car or bag. It will protect your hair and your face, while making you the belle of the beach!
