6 Tips for Healthy Summer Hair
Summer is in full swing! What could be better than flowery dresses and ice-cold lemonade on hot sunny days? This sounds like perfection if you ask me… But summer can bring some difficulties to our hair. Summer heat can damage our hair. It can give very oily scalp and even turn our hair green when in contact with chlorine (yes, that really can happen). But don't be afraid! We are here for your rescue and would like to share 6 great simple summer hair tips!
1. Reduce the Heat
If you are going to spend a long day in the sun, we recommend that you either apply a deep conditioner with SPF protection or cover your scalp with a hat. Another way to protect your hair is to avoid heat styling as much as possible (we know this can be difficult, but your hair will yell "thank you!").
2.Limit Chlorine Damage
Chlorine in water can give your hair a greenish color if you have light colored hair. The key to avoiding greenish color and chlorine damage is to prep your hair before swimming. Because dry hair behaves like a sponge, you should protect it so that it absorbs significantly less chlorine. You can warm your hair with tap water before swimming. After swimming, rinsing the hair with some apple cider vinegar and water will further limit chlorine damage. Thus, you can save your hair that turns green in the summer.
We see it all too often… colored hair that is ruined and damaged by all the salt water and sun exposure. This is because heat and sun oxidize our hair color, leaving our beautiful hair dry. Keratin Treatments bring our hair back to life by helping to revitalize and re-moisturize. You can protect your hair in summer by purchasing Shakira Keratin Collagen Hyaluronic Acid Shampoo from Naturelim.
4. Wash Less
Have you ever heard of the suggestion to wash your hair every day during the summer months as it helps control oily scalps? Really? In fact, frequent washing removes your scalp from its natural oils and promotes an additional oil production. The solution is to wash your hair less often. A great DIY treatment to control oil secretion on your scalp is to mix 2-3 tablespoons of coconut water with the juice of one lemon. Apply the mixture on your scalp and massage for 5 minutes before rinsing it off with cold water. Do this as a weekly treatment for best results.
5. Fight the Frizz
Have you felt your hair increase in size when you go out on a humid day? Curly hair is definitely a challenge, especially in summer. But don't worry, we have a few creative solutions to help you save the day! Argan oil will help you. Argan oil helps moisturize your hair.
6.Drink More Water
We will never hear enough: drink more water! It is not only indispensable for your body and mind, but also works wonders for your hair! Remember that water will always moisturize your hair and scalp. In addition to drinking 2-3 liters of water a day, be sure to eat delicious and healthy foods that accelerate hair growth.
I wish you a very nice summer and healthy and beautiful hair!
