How to Take Care of Your Hair During Summer

It is almost summer again. Aside from building a summer body, there are a lot of things that need to be in place as well to enjoy your summer. One of which is natural hair protection. Do you know constant exposure to the sun can damage your hair cuticles and increase the chances of hair loss? To protect your hair from damage during the summer, it's important to adopt a routine that "sun proofs" your hair. Here are some helpful tips:

Cover up

The first thing to do during summer is to protect your hair with a hat or scarf. You do not have to worry about ruining your look as you can wear a fancy scarf or hat. This help protects your hair, provides extra UV protection, and helps your scalp retain moisture. A scarf or hat reduces wind damage, particularly if your hair is prone to tangling.

Opt for comfortable hairdos

Choose loose and comfortable hairstyles to keep your hair in check and minimize sun exposure. A tousled braid is an excellent option for controlling your hair while avoiding damage. Avoid tight hairstyles that can pull and strain your hair, particularly if it's already dry from the summer heat.

Reduce washing frequency

Frequent washing of your hair strips away its natural oils, leading to increased oil production and the temptation to wash it even more. Consider simply rinsing your hair in the shower after a day at the beach or pool to remove excess oil. However, if you want to wash your hair at all, get a complete set of products like Omakazi Happy Hair System.

Minimize heat exposure

Whenever possible, limit the use of blow dryers on your hair. During summer, your hair already endures significant heat exposure, and it will likely air-dry quickly on its own. Give your hair a break from the blow dryer and embrace the natural drying process. Also, avoid using flat irons as they can further damage dry hair. 

UV protection

Some hair protectants also provide UV filters that shield your hair from the harmful effects of the sun's ultraviolet rays. UV exposure can lead to hair colour fading, dryness, and brittleness. By using a protectant with UV filters, you can prevent these issues and maintain vibrant, healthy-looking hair.

Swim carefully

If you're a swimmer, chlorinated water can negatively affect your hair's health. Take extra care by using shampoos and conditioners specifically formulated for swimmers. These products help minimize the damaging effects of chlorine on your hair, keeping it in better condition. Incorporate a swim care routine to counteract the potential harm caused by the chemicals in pool water.

Stay hydrated

Don't overlook the importance of staying hydrated for the health of your hair. In addition to following the right hair care practices, ensure that you drink plenty of water and cooling fluids during the summer. Hydrating yourself from within helps nourish your hair strands and maintain their moisture levels. This tip is essential and should not be ignored.
