Summer Hair Care Tips

Tues, 30 Jun.

As we are all aware, wintertime means that it is time to follow certain hair care tips in order to keep your hair beautiful and healthy. After all, winter leaves hair feeling brittle and dry and this is why it is crucial that you follow winter hair care tips when the weather starts to get colder. Did you know, however, that there are important summer hair care tips you should be following as well? That’s right!

At MyCuts, we know quite a bit about how to keep your hair looking flawless and healthy regardless of the season. If you want to keep your hair looking beautiful and feeling healthy throughout the summer season this year, we have a few summer hair care tips you need to know. Let’s get started!

Minimize Chlorine Damage

Let’s be honest: chlorine is no friend to your hair. One impact that chlorine can have on your hair, for example, is the fact green hair can be caused by exposure to chlorine. While all of us want to be able to spend time in the pool this summer, it is crucial that you take the necessary steps to protect your hair beforehand. It is important to note that dry hair is especially absorbent and this means that dry hair absorbs chlorine easily. In order to avoid this, you should rinse your hair with tap water before jumping into the pool. Upon getting out of the pool, it is important that you rinse your hair with water and apple cider vinegar in order to minimize the damage caused by chlorine.

Wear Hats

If you’re looking to protect your hair from UV rays, wearing hair scarves or hats is a fantastic way to protect yourself. That being said, covering your hair with an accessory is also a great way to protect your hair from UV rays. So why should you be protecting your hair from UV rays this summer? Well, the sun can damage your hair and even cause fading over time! Think of a hat or hair scarf as sunscreen for your hair. As an added barrier of protection, you can also add a deep conditioner with SPF to your daily hair routine.

Wash Your Hair Less

Believe it or not, washing your hair too often can actually strip your hair of vital natural oils and this causes your hair to produce even more oils. Although you may find yourself wanting to wash your hair more often in the summer because your hair feels oilier, you should definitely avoid doing so. The key to keeping your hair nourished and healthy this summer, you should try to wash your hair as little as possible- and that goes for all seasons!

Style Your Hair With Comfortable, Loose Looks

Finally, when styling your hair this summer, you should try to choose styles that are comfortable and loose. When you elect to style your hair with tight hairstyles, it can actually be damaging to your hair- especially if your hair is dry from the summer heat. A loose braid, for example, is one of the best ways to minimize sun exposure while keeping your hair controlled. Other options at your disposal include loose buns and other styles which you can attain without the need for heat tools which can cause your hair to become even drier. This is the best course of action when it comes to styling, especially in the summer.
