14 Smartest Summer Hair Care Tips

14 smartest summer hair care tips cover

We’ve shared a lot of hairstyle ideas and haircuts for summer but what about hair care? Sometimes in the summer, our hair looks like straw because it’s the time when it needs some special care, just like your skin. What can you do to get perfect hair?

  1. Cover your hair with a hat or a scarf during summers. This protects it from the harmful UV rays and it also helps in retaining moisture. A hat reduces damage caused by wind, especially if your hair is prone to tangling, and protects color-treated hair.

  3. Keeping your hair in a loose hairstyle works wonders during the summer. It helps air out your locks and prevents the accumulation of sweat.

  5. Avoid washing your hair too much during this season; it strips your hair of the essential oils that moisturize it naturally. And when you wash your hair use brands, which are gentle, nourishing and have a high SPF. Use a homemade or natural dry shampoo, such as cornstarch, in place of regular shampoo to go a bit longer without washing.

  7. Avoid using hair-dryers as much as possible because blow-drying makes your hair frizz up. Avoid flat-irons, too, as they will do further damage to already-dry hair. Plus, a sleek hairstyle only makes that frizz stand out more.
  8. Keep conditioning. Your hair must replenish its moisture to stay healthy. Try a natural deep conditioning treatment once a week to get that extra bit of moisture into your hair.

  10. Stay calm, eat healthy and do some exercise because your hair is a reflection of your lifestyle. Salmon, spinach, and omega-3-rich eggs can keep your hair strong and looking healthy and shiny.

  12. A hot oil rinse is a must in the summers. After shampooing your hair, heat any natural oil (coconut, almond or olive) and apply it to your hair from the tips to the roots. Your hair should feel moisturized afterward, but not greasy.

  16. Don’t brush your hair, use a wide-tooth comb instead. These tend to be way less harsh when it comes to untangling your locks.

  18. If you are going to swim, wet your hair before you enter the pool. This way it will absorb lesser chlorine. Another idea is to brush a few drops of natural hair oil through your dry locks with a boar-bristle brush, then dousing your hair with fresh water. The oil acts as an additional barrier because oil and water don’t mix.

  20. If you’re a blond who turns green after a dip in the pool, try rinsing out your wet hair with ¼ cup apple cider vinegar and 2 cups water to get rid of discoloration and dullness.

  22. Don’t use hair sprays because it’s extremely drying. If you must use hair spray, consider using one that contains natural ingredients and conditioners, as they are more conditioning and neutralizing.
  23. Make a mix of avocado oil, aloe vera juice and water and put this concoction in a spritz bottle. Keep it handy whenever you feel the dryness levels in your hair rise. You can also use a herbal tea rinse to boost your hair’s natural highlights, add lemon or chamomile for blond hair, black tea for brown or black hair, or red zinger for copper or red hair.
