When it comes to summertime skincare, all of us have our game pretty much on point. But your skin is not the only area that needs protection during the summers, your hair does too. The scorching summer heat and the harsh UV rays can strip your hair of moisture and leave your hair looking really dull and lifeless.
But this doesn’t mean you should start panicking already, because we have something that will help salvage this problem. By following the simple hair care tips mentioned in this article, you can easily protect your hair against summer damage so that you can flaunt gorgeous, healthy-looking strands throughout the year! Scroll down to find out how…
- 01. Reduce heat styling
- 02. Get regular trims
- 03. Wash less often
- 04. Use a conditioner without fail
- 05. Cover your head when stepping out
01. Reduce heat styling
The scorching summer heat is already guilty of stripping your hair of essential moisture. This is why it would be better to keep heat styling to a minimum to prevent any further damage. Although, on occasions when you do need to heat style your hair, remember to use a generous amount of the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray all over your hair. This one right here not only protects against heat damage but also fights other common hair problems such as frizz, flyaways and knots.
02. Get regular trims
If you don’t remember the last time you got yourself a haircut, then please book an appointment RN. Having really dry and brittle hair that’s covered in split ends can actually keep your hair from looking healthy no matter how many products you use. We understand that you want to grow your hair long, but go get yourself a little trim, because we promise that’s a no-fail ticket to better, healthier and faster hair growth.
03. Wash less often
Thanks to the summer heat, we know your scalp and hair feel a lot greasier than they did during the winters, but avoid washing your hair every single day. This will end up further stripping your hair of moisture and make them look dry and frizzy. Instead, spray your hair with some dry shampoo such as the Dove Coconut Dry Shampoo before going to bed each night. The dry shampoo absorbs all the excess oils while you sleep, allowing you to wake up with fuller-looking, bouncy hair in the morning.
04. Use a conditioner without fail
Conditioners are a godsend for dry and frizzy hair. Not only do they moisturise your strands, but also leave them smooth and tangle-free. But instead of using just about any conditioner, pick one that controls frizz like the Tresemme Climate Protection Conditioner. Enriched with keratin and olive oil, this conditioner strengthens and nourishes your hair like never before, while the inclusion of UV blockers protects against high humidity and frizz for up to 24 hours.
05. Cover your head when stepping out
Covering your hair with a hat or scarf is a simple way to increase the efficacy of the tips mentioned above. A wide-brimmed hat creates an extra layer of protection and prevents your hair from coming in direct contact with the harsh UV rays. All these factors combine together to protect your hair against the summer sun and keep it healthy and shiny.
