Your Summer Vacation Haircare Guide

Ready for the summer vacation? As the sun heats up and the adventures roll in, it's time to think about more than just packing your swimsuit and sunscreen. Yup, we're talking about haircare during those exciting summer trips and travels. Whether you're hitting the beach, exploring new cities or camping under the stars, keep your locks happy and healthy as well. 

You may love the wind in your hair but that’s the salty breeze messing with your hair. Far from the Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara road trip dream, right? Without the right haircare routine, your fun summer vacation can quickly turn into a tangled mess. But fret not! With a few simple tips and tricks, you can keep your mane looking fabulous from sunrise to sunset, no matter where your summer vacation takes you. So, let's look into how you can keep those locks soft, protected and radiant while you make memories to last a lifetime. 

Summer Haircare Tips 


1. Hydrate Your Hair

5. Hair Serums

When the sun is blazing and the humidity is high, your hair can become parched just like your skin. To combat this, make hydration your best friend. Opt for moisturising shampoos and conditioners that replenish lost moisture.  

If you have dry hair, the TRESemmé Moisture Boost with Hyaluronic Acid range is perfect as it cleanses and conditions while sealing in moisture for 3 days straight. 

If you have damaged hair, then the Dove Intense Repair Shampoo & Conditioner is for you. It works from within, repairs damaged hair and protects from the harsh sun with every wash while you are on your summer vacation. 


2. Cover Up

5. Hair Serums

Hats and scarves aren't just fashion accessories, they're essential during your summer vacation. Invest in wide-brimmed hats, caps or lightweight scarves to shield your hair from the harsh UV rays. Not only do they provide much-needed shade for your scalp and hair but they also add a stylish touch to your summer outfits. Remember to tuck your hair under your hat or wrap it up in a scarf for maximum protection, especially during the peak sun hours between 10 am and 4 pm. 


3. Summery Hairstyling

5. Hair Serums

Summer is all about easy-breezy hairstyles that can withstand the heat and humidity. Opt for low-maintenance styles like braids, buns or ponytails to keep your hair off your face and neck. Not only do these styles look effortlessly chic but they also help prevent tangles and frizz caused by sweat and humidity. Oh and do minimise the use of heat styling tools like blow dryers and straighteners, as they can further dry out your strands. But if you must, use a heat protectant spray before you start styling with these tools. 


4. Avoid Chlorine and Saltwater

5. Hair Serums

Pool days and beach trips are summer vacation staples but they can wreck your hair if you're not careful. And who wants a swimming cap when you need the right photo for your Instagram? But chlorine from pools and saltwater from the ocean can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and brittle.

Wet your hair with fresh water before diving into the pool or ocean. This helps to create a barrier that prevents your hair from absorbing too much chlorine or saltwater. After swimming, rinse your hair thoroughly with fresh water and follow up with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner to remove any lingering chemicals and restore moisture. 


5. Hair Serums

5. Hair Serums

Hair serums are your secret weapon for combating frizz, taming flyaways and most importantly, acting as a barrier between your hair and the sun. Adding a healthy shine to your locks is a bonus. They also double up as heat protection if you want to heat style your hair.  

The TRESemmé Gloss Ultimate Hair Serum brings life to dull hair with the help of nourishing oils like macadamia, sunflower and coconut oil. It doesn’t weigh down your hair, turning it glossy and smooth.  

If you prefer chemical-free haircare, the Love Beauty and Planet Argan Oil & Lavender Hair Serum is the best option to control frizz and smoothen flyaways. It has authentic argan oil and lavender extract for a natural, soothing fragrance.  

Apply a small amount of serum to your palms and gently run it through your hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends. Not only will this help to seal in moisture and protect your hair from environmental damage but it will also leave your hair looking sleek and polished all summer long. Make it a part of your daily summer care routine for best results. 

FAQs on Haircare in Summer 

Q1. Is there sunscreen for hair? 

Yes, there are hair products specifically formulated with UV filters to protect your hair from sun damage. These products come in various forms such as sprays, creams and leave-in conditioners. Look for hair sunscreens that offer broad-spectrum protection and apply them before heading out into the sun. They help to shield your hair from the harmful effects of UV rays, such as dryness, brittleness and colour fading if you have dyed your hair. 

Q2. How frequently should I wash my hair during summer trips? 

The frequency of washing your hair during summer trips depends on various factors such as your hair type, activity level and exposure to sweat and environmental pollutants. Generally, a two- to three-day gap is a healthy balance. However, if you're swimming frequently, sweating a lot or exposing your hair to saltwater or chlorine, you may need to wash it more often to remove build-up and prevent damage.  

Q3. What is an easy hairstyle during summer? 

An easy but pretty hairstyle for summer is the classic bun or top knot. Simply gather your hair into a high ponytail, twist it around itself and secure it with a hair tie or bobby pins. This hairstyle keeps your hair off your face and neck, making it perfect for hot and humid days. You can also customise your bun by adding braids, twists or hair accessories for a unique look.
