Your skin has different needs in the summertime, but it doesn’t stop at your skin. Just like your skin, your hair is faced with completely different elements during the summer months. Because of the weather changes, it’s common for you to experience a whole different set of hair struggles. Before you get frustrated and chalk the hair struggles up to just being a part of the season, we’ve discovered some great solutions for common summer hair woes. Yep! You have woes, we have solutions.
Maintain Hair Moisture (Even in Summer)
Dryness and frizz are both incredibly common hair woes so many of us deal with during the summer season. Between the sun taking a lot of the moisture from our locks, and the chlorine and salt our hair is submerged in it can be tough to catch a break! That is, until now. Experts suggest one of the best ways to keep your hair from becoming dry and frizzy from all the water exposure we tend to get this time of year is quite simple. Simply dampening your hair with fresh water before getting into water that’s salt or chlorine-filled is said to help tremendously with maintaining more moisture in the hair.
Embrace Natural Hair Texture
If you have curly or wavy hair, you’ve probably experienced the struggle of straightening or styling your hair for it to last less than an hour once it’s exposed to the humidity during the summer. What’s a girl to do? Truthfully, experts suggest this is the time of year to embrace the natural texture of your hair. If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, instead of fighting the constant fight in keeping your hair straight just work with what you’ve got! Styling your hair by adding styling products according to your hair type will help to tame your natural texture, bring it out in a really gorgeous way and help to keep it in place. The truth is, your hair is much more likely to hold its natural texture than when you try to alter it. Regardless of how great you are at styling, just give your locks a break and work with the natural texture-you’ll thank us later!
Don’t Wash Every Day
As tempting as it is to want to wash your hair daily, especially when you spend a lot of time outdoors, it’s crucial that you resist the urge. Since our hair is exposed to the sun and other drying elements this time of year, it’s even more important to NOT wash daily. Washing your hair every day tends to strip your hair of its natural oils causing more dryness and frizziness to occur. Instead, enlist the help of dry shampoo and texturizing product to style your hair in different ways between washing. Using these types of products helps you to fake the just washed look, but also keep the moisture in your hair.
