Summer Hair Care

Summer can be especially hard on your hair. Chlorine, bright sunshine, and other summer “hazards” can leave you with less than gorgeous tresses. But follow some simple steps for summer hair care and you can have fabulous hair all season long!

  1. Condition – Just like your body needs water in the hot weather, your hair needs moisture as well. Condition regularly and, if you use a dry shampoo, condition every couple of days to keep hair from drying out.
  1. Ditch the detergent – Even the gentlest surfactants (the ingredient that makes shampoo lather) can dry your scalp and hair. Try using products that use essential oils that clean along with a conditioner that moisturizes.
  1. Go low tech – Blow drying your hair and using curling irons or straighteners can cause a lot of damage. Summer is the perfect time to put your hair up in a loose bun, a ponytail, or braid. Healthy hair will look great even with a casual do.
  1. Use essential oils – Coconut oil is a great lotion for hair and it won’t weigh it down. Avocado oil not only helps your hair but is fabulous if your scalp got sunburned. Essential oils won’t build up on your hair either.
  1. Pull your hair up for bed – Knots and tangles can cause breakage. This is particularly true if your summer hair is dry. Before bed put your hair up in a loose bun to avoid the bed head tangles that break delicate hair.


  1. Protect your color – Sunlight and heat oxidize color making hair look fried. Use a keratin treatment to protect your color and leave hair looking and feeling soft and beautiful.
  1. Dust your hair – Dusting is a technique for trimming tiny amounts of the ends of your hair. The small amounts of hair resemble dust as they fall. Having your hairdresser dust your hair every few weeks keeps longer sections from needing to be cut due to split ends.
  1. Save your hair from chlorine – Don’t shampoo before hitting the pool. The natural oils will help protect your hair from the damaging effects of chlorine. After your day at the pool shampoo and condition.
  1. Air dry – Putting away your hair dryer for the summer is a good idea. Let your hair dry naturally in the air rather than using the high heat of a blow dryer.
  1. Brush, brush, brush – Brushing your hair stimulates blood flow in the scalp and the roots of your hair. Brushing hair often is the key to maintaining a healthy, beautiful head of hair. The longer your hair, the bigger the brush you need to use.
