As the summer season is quickly approaching, we are more than excited to immerse ourselves in the wonderful seasonal activities. However, amidst all the fun, we can easily forget about taking care of our hair. The sun's rays, the heat, chlorinated pools, sweat, and many other factors can impact our hair and turn it limp and lifeless. The best way to ensure that your hair is its best is to have a strong hair care routine so you don’t have to worry.
We got you covered, here is your summer guide to healthy hair all season long!
Protect Your Hair
The most important thing to remember this season is to protect your hair! The harsh UVA and UVB rays of the sun are known to do great damage to both our skin and our hair. Just as we protect our skin with sunscreen, it is crucial to protect our scalp and our hair from the sun. Healthy hair starts at the scalp so to ensure it is at its best, make sure you add a hat or two into your wardrobe this season. Whether your go-to is a baseball cap or a floppy sun hat, make sure you're wearing it when you're stuck in the sun!
Avoid Heat Styling
The summer season comes with constant exposure to the sun and the heat which is why we should consider putting down our styling tools as much as possible. Both the sun and heat styling alone can cause your hair to become dry, brittle, or even break. Instead, try air-drying your hair and showcase your natural locks. If you HAVE to use heat on your hair this season, always use a lower heat setting, and remember to use heat protection! Our daily hair-perfecting oil is not only a natural heat protectant, but it also helps you nourish and repair your hair at the same time!
Wear Loose Hairstyles
Our favourite hairstyles in the summer are ones that keep our hair out of our face in hopes of keeping us cool. Many of us opt for ponytails or buns on a daily basis. If you are one of these people, ensure your hair is tied loose and that you are using the right hair accessories. Putting your hair up in the same style every day can cause breakage and frizz where your hair and the elastic meet, especially if tied too tight. When putting up your hair, use a satin or silk scrunchie as it comes with many benefits. It keeps your hair soft and moisturized, it doesn’t pull and it is gentle enough to wear all day. Try our silky scrunchies in our pastel tones to keep your hair protected and stylish all season long.
Use a Wide Tooth Comb
As the sun’s rays and heat can cause our hair to become more brittle, we want to avoid any other damage to our hair as much as possible. This summer, make the switch from a hairbrush to a wide-tooth comb. A regular hairbrush can pull and break your hair while a wide-tooth comb is designed to easily detangle hair and remove any knots without ripping, pulling, or snagging of your hair.
