Summer Hair Care Tips

Between sweltering weather, bright sunlight, and frequent trips to the pool (chlorine), the season of fun in the sun can take its toll on your luscious locks. If you don’t give a bit of TLC back to your tresses, a few weeks into the season, you may notice that your hair is dry or brittle.

To take care of your hair now, here are a few expert tips from our team at Accolades Salon Spa:

Swim Damage Control
Since chlorine can strip your hair of its natural oils, you’ll want to wet your hair before jumping in for a splash session. By pre-soaking your locks, your hair will absorb less pool chemicals. When possible, rinse your hair immediately after a swim and use a leave in conditioner to help combat any damage.

A Good Trim

Getting rid of split ends with a fresh trim is a good way to start off the summer. Not to mention, with the weather being warm, you are more likely to want to chop off any extra length.

Better Product
A good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner can do wonders to get rid of the summer’s sweat and grime. If you notice that your products are too heavy for the warm months, be sure to add in a clarifying shampoo once a week to remove any product buildup.

Skip Styling with Heat
Avoid styling your hair with anything that plugs in. This means you should avoid blow dryers, flat irons, and curling implements. To get a bit of curl into your hair without using tools, try washing it at night and braiding it for a relaxed beachy wave in the morning.

Protect from the Sun
Make it a daily habit to apply a hair care protect to protect your head from sun damage. There are plenty of UV filtering hair products in spray, cream, or gel formats that can help your hair, scalp, and ears steer clear too much sun.
