Let's talk about the common hair issues and tips on how to take care of hair in summer.

1. Frizz

Frizz is a common summer hair problem caused by the humidity in the air. The moisture in the air causes hair strands to absorb moisture and swell, leading to frizz. This can be particularly problematic for those with curly hair.

Tips on How to Combat It

  • Use anti-frizz products such as serums, leave-in conditioners, or hair oils in your summer hair care routine to help smooth the hair cuticles and prevent frizz.
  • Avoid brushing or combing your hair when it's dry, as this can lead to more frizz. Instead, use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to detangle your hair when it's wet.
  • Consider wearing your hair in a protective style such as braids or twists, which can help reduce the amount of moisture your hair absorbs from the air.

Use the TRESemmé Gloss Ultimate Hair Serum which is infused with Vitamin E and a blend of 3 powerful oils nourishing Coconut oil, conditioning Macadamia Oil and moisturizing Sunflower Seed Oil.

Hot weather, UV rays, and chlorinated water can cause your hair to become dry and brittle. This can lead to split ends, breakage, and an overall dull appearance.

Tips on How to Combat It

  • Your hair care routine for summer must include a hydrating shampoo and conditioner that contains natural oils such as coconut or argan oil to add moisture and protect your hair from the sun.
  • Avoid using hot styling tools such as straighteners or curling irons, which can further dry out your hair. Instead, opt for air-drying or using low heat settings.

Scalp irritation is another common summer hair problem, often caused by sweating or exposure to pool chemicals. It can lead to itching, dandruff, and even hair loss in severe cases.

Tips on How to Combat It

  • Wash your hair regularly with a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo to remove sweat, dirt, and pool chemicals.
  • Avoid using hot water when washing your hair, as it can strip away natural oils and dry out your scalp. Instead, use lukewarm or cool water.

4. Colour fading

If you've dyed your hair, the summer sun can cause your colour to fade quickly. UV rays can break down the molecules in hair dye, causing it to lose its vibrancy and become brassy or faded.

Tips on How to Combat It

  • Wear a hat or scarf to protect your hair from the sun, or use a UV-protective spray that helps shield your hair from UV rays.
  • Use a colour-safe shampoo and conditioner that is specifically formulated to help preserve your hair colour.
  • Consider getting a hair gloss treatment at a salon, which can help refresh your hair colour and add shine.

5. Split ends

Excessive heat, UV rays, and chlorine can damage your hair, causing split ends, which can make your hair look frizzy and unhealthy.

Tips on How to Combat It

  • Get regular trims to help prevent split ends from spreading further up the hair shaft.
  • Use a hair mask or deep conditioning treatment to nourish and hydrate your hair, helping to prevent future split ends.
  • Avoid using hot styling tools such as straighteners and curling irons, as they can damage your hair and cause split ends.
  • Protect your hair from UV rays and chlorine by wearing a hat or scarf and using a leave-in conditioner or hair oil.

6. Greasy hair

8

Hot weather and sweating can cause your scalp to produce more oil, leading to greasy hair.

Tips on How to Combat It

  • Wash your hair more frequently during the summer months to remove excess oil and sweat.
  • Use a dry shampoo or baby powder to absorb excess oil in between washes.
  • Avoid using heavy styling products that can weigh down your hair and make it appear greasier.

7. Hair breakage

8

Summer activities such as swimming, sunbathing, and playing outdoor sports can cause hair breakage, especially if you're not protecting your hair properly.

Tips on How to Combat It

  • Avoid using hot styling tools such as straighteners, curling irons, and blow dryers since they damage your hair and cause breakage. Instead, opt for air-drying or using low heat settings.
  • Wear a hat or scarf to protect your hair from the sun and reduce the amount of UV rays that can damage your hair.
