If there's any time of year to take a more relaxed approach to your hair care and styling routines, it's summer! For us it means letting go of the heat styling tools, relying heavily on low-key classics like the topknot or ponytail, and texture, texture, texture (curly haired gals, this is your time to shine)!
Of course, summer also means it's time to hit the beach, which means exposure to high heat, UV rays, chlorine, and humidity- all of which are harmful to our precious locks and can lead to frizzy, damaged hair come winter.
Here are some of our best tips for keeping your hair in good condition all summer long!
Hello, beach bunny!
Condition: Between the heat on the beach and the salt in the ocean, vacation can seriously dry out your hair. One of the best things you can do to protect it is to apply a deep conditioner from root to tip before hitting the beach. Then, either leave your hair loose or style it up into a topknot... not only will you appear to be sporting a chic wet look, you'll be keeping your hair nourished and protected!
Replenish: At the end of the day, make sure to replenish all of the moisture your hair as lost by washing it with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Then, avoid the heat styling tools by simply tying the hair up into a loose topknot and letting it dry that way. The end result? Perfect beach waves!
Lighten: If you're hoping to lighten your hair this summer, skip out on the hair dye and opt for a gentle hair treatment like Casting Sunkissed Jelly.
Protect: Another tip for protecting your hair? Hair oil! Use a hair oil with UV protection in it and apply everyday to keep your ends nourished and your color put!
Most importantly- have fun!
