Summertime is all about enjoying those carefree days outside in the sunshine. However, with it comes a slew of other factors that can wreak havoc onto your hair. That's why establishing a summer hair care routine is critical to maintaining the health of your strands and the style you desire.
But how can you know which treatments are best for you when you're dealing with heat, humidity, and all the pool chemicals? Is there anything you can do to avoid the problem in the first place? Fortunately, there are a few strategies and treatments you may employ this season to combat heat damage to your hair.
1. Condition your hair adequately
In the hot summer months, your hair is just as thirsty as you are. So why not pamper it with some moisture-rich hydration?
Using a moisturising shampoo and conditioner, as well as your HINU hair oil on the ends, can help rejuvenate dehydrated locks. Conditioning masks and live-in conditioners will provide a deeper amount of moisture for extra treatment. This can restore, replenish the silkiness of your hair and get the hair look fresh and rejuvenated.
2. Use a hair sunscreen
Yes, there is such a thing as hair sunscreen. Because your skin isn't the only organ that absorbs the sun's harmful UV rays, you should also protect your hair.
You can always look for products that provide the correct quantity of sunscreen in your summer hair care. Shampoos, conditioners, sprays, oils, and masks are available in a variety of scents. It all depends on your hair type and lifestyle to determine which one is ideal for you.
3. Stay away from heat products
There's already enough heat outside in the summer; you don't need to add to the problem by styling your hair with even more heat. It's time to put your hair straighteners away for the season.
Blot your hair dry with a microfiber towel. This will assist in avoiding the frizz. You can also opt to air dry the hair. This is the best season to embrace the natural texture of your hair. Add a sea- salt spray to style the hair.
4. Wash hair less periodically
It's tempting to wash your hair every day as the days get hotter and the conditions get sweatier. However, by doing so, you are depriving your scalp and hair of essential natural oils, something no one wants.
Using a dry shampoo will help you go longer between washes. By sprinkling the powder on your scalp and massaging it in with your fingertips, you may absorb grease while also giving your hair body and texture.
5. Experiment with loose hair styles
Summer humidity can be oppressive, as anyone with frizzy hair knows all too well. So go for colourful, flowing hairstyles to combat the frizz. It's the ideal time of year to play around with loose, carefree looks. Messy buns, high ponytails, and large braids are all options for your beautiful hair.
6. Get a hair trim
Your hair's ends are more likely to split when it dries out. Split ends, on the other hand, make your hair look ragged and frizzy. Trimming your hair on a regular basis will help it stay healthier and look its best. Your hair will be less knotted and prone to breaking as a result of this.
7. Extra care before swimming
Rinse your hair with cool, fresh water before swimming to reduce damage. If you wish to add another layer. Spray your hair before and after swimming with your HINIU hydrating mist to keep it nice and refreshed.
