It might seem like the Summer is a million miles away, but the truth is, before we know it the warm weather will be here and we will all be looking forward to days at the beach, long evenings and plenty of time spent with friends in a pub garden.
Whilst the Summer is great for our mood and for our tan too. One part of us that seems to feel the brunt of the heat is our hair. Frizzy, dry and untamed. These are just some of the complaints that you may hear during the Summer weather, that relates to our hair.
So, whilst these problems may be part and parcel of warmer weather, does that mean that we have to just accept it? We don’t think so. In fact, we have put together the top 5 hair care tips for Summer weather.
Treat yourself to a trip to the hairdresser
One of the best things that you can do for your hair not only in the Summer but all year round, is visit a dedicated and professional hairdresser, just like NUYU. As experts in everything to do with hair, they can make sure that you not only get a good cut and style, but that you also can have some advice on how to keep your hair looking perfect. No matter if you are heading off to the beach, the pool or sticking around at home, they will be able to recommend the ideal product to try out on your tresses.
Cover your scalp as much as possible
We all know that hat hair isn’t the easiest of things to bear, but when the sun is beating down on your head, wearing a hat is a must. Not only does it protect you from heatstroke, but it also helps to stop the delicate skin on your scalp getting burnt. You could, if you want a break from a hat, opt for a conditioner that comes with SPF protection as this will help, or maybe choose another head accessory such as headband or scarf.
Wash your hair less and let it dry naturally
It may sound like a strange concept, but one of the best things that you can do for your hair during the Summer months is limit the amount that you wash it. Frequent washing strips all the natural oils from your scalp, which means that your scalp is going to be dry and irritated. Not a great look. You should aim to wash your hair every other day if you can, or maybe every two if it isn’t too greasy.
Even better, you need to try and avoid heat as much as possible. This means washing with cool water rather than warm and also avoiding heat treatments too. Letting your hair dry naturally instead. Something that seems all the easier to do during the Summer, then it would during the Winter.
Drink, drink, drink
When the weather is warm, our body is going to produce more sweat, which means that we need to be focused on topping all that lost water up. The best thing to do is to drink as much water as you can. Not only will your body feel the benefit of this, but so will your hair and also your skin too. If you find it hard going to drink water as it comes, then add some fruit to your bottle and give it a fresh new flavour. This will make it all the easier to get your daily intake in.
Apply a Keratin treatment
During the Summer hair, especially hair that is colour treated, can start to become damaged. This is down to the sun exposure and often an increased exposure to salt water too. Both of these things can really have an impact on your hair and leave it not quite looking its best. One thing that you can do is to treat your hair to a high-quality Keratin treatment. The great thing about these treatments is that they are not only easy to apply, but they will also help to keep your hair hydrated and also give it a boost when it might be feeling a little on the flat side.
As you can see, you don’t have to worry about crazy hair during the Summer and you don’t have to accept it either. What you can do is try and treat your hair with a little care and it will show you a little glamour and beauty back.
