Summer: Protect your Hair for the Summer Months

Hello Lovelies,

Spring has most definitely sprung! So now it's important to look after your hair even more than the harsh winter months. 

After working in a Hairdressers for a very long time I learnt that summer is definitely a bigger enemy than winter when it comes to the condition of your hair. The sun can alter the colour, the heat can damage your hair, and if your going on holiday, the pool and sea can cause breakages and colour alterations :s.
We definitely don't want this ladies!

One thing that i swear by in the summer, especially for coloured hair, is a good quality hair protection oil. If you use Moroccan Oil (or any other alternatives) then don't get mistaken, a sun protection oil has different qualities and protects you from the heat, uv rays, chlorine and salt water.

Try to not use as many heated appliances on your hair because this will dry your hair out even more in the summer months.
If you do use heated appliances then as always use a heat protection and finishing products just to give that extra level of protection.

If you use hairspray then try and go for a weather resistant one as this will protect you against high levels of humidity and dryness and will also add moisture (i know this sounds silly but trust me) to your hair and prevent dryness.

Finally, use a really moisturising shampoo just to keep your hair from going brittle and breaking. And if you tie your hair up, alternate where you tie the band each day just to stop your hair from going weak in one area.

Hope this has helped with any summer hair queries that you might of had and inspired you to take extra care of your hair in the summer. If you have any tips, let me know beauties :)
