Summer is one of the best times of the year! I mean, what’s not to love? Longer days, warm weather, family trips and reunions...the list goes on and on! However, with this season also comes UV rays and heat that can wreak havoc on your hair. What’s a girl (or guy) to do? Read on, because today we’ll talk about some ways to keep your tresses looking their absolute best, no matter what comes your way this season!
Condition more. While we are always advocates for a good conditioning after you shampoo, in the summer it is of utmost importance. Make sure you always condition in the shower, and we even recommend applying a leave-in before you swim. In addition to this, you may want to commit to a once-weekly hair masque routine to help keep the drying effects of the sun at bay.
Shampoo less. That’s right! Shampooing every day should not even enter your mind, especially in the summer. Shampoo can dry out your scalp and hair, so we recommend shampooing less during this already dry season. To extend the life of your style, use a good dry shampoo- such as Paul Mitchell’s INVISIBLEWEAR- in between washes. When you wash your hair, concentrate the shampoo on your scalp, not your ends.
Avoid Heat. Summer is the perfect time to let your natural texture reign supreme. The sun is providing quite enough heat, so try to avoid heat styling as much as possible. Allow your hair to air dry, and use our Awapuhi No Blowout HydroCream for a perfected look. This lightweight styling cream speeds up air-drying, defines natural texture and prevents frizz for a more refined take on the effortless air-dried look.
Hydrate! Doing all of the above is a great start to keeping your hair healthy this summer, but if you’re not drinking enough water you are really cheating yourself of its many beauty benefits. Your hair and skin benefit greatly from ample hydration, so make sure you are drinking enough fluids and eating plenty of fresh fruits and veggies. Our fave? Infuse your water with fresh fruits like strawberries, lemons, or oranges. It’s a great way to cool off and take care of yourself at the same time!
