Luscious Locks this Summer

Jun 06

We’ve been waiting for the sun…Summer Sun Hair care

We have been waiting, pray, hoping for sunshine for so long and now that it’s here we nearly don’t know what to do with ourselves! Well we are going to make sure you can tick hair care off your list with a few tips to keep your hair looking good in the soaring temperatures!

Luscious Locks this Summer

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Conditioner is like water to hair so it is important to ramp up your conditioning duties during the summer months make sure to schedule conditioning treatments at least once a week! It is also important to drink plenty of liquids to keep roots and strands flush with fluids.  Water will also keep your skin soft and plump.  While it’s tempting to drink ice cold alcoholic drinks keep in mind that they can dehydrate skin and strands!

Split ends- be gone! Be religious about trims this summer, as the sun robs moisture from your tresses, it is important to have our ends trimmed every 4-6 weeks during the summer months! Frizzy hair is often the result of too much sun time to keep those ends healthy with regular trims!

Back off Heat! If you normally use hot styling tools, try and give your hair a rest during the summer months and let hair air dry whenever possible! Use this as an opportunity to create a ‘Boho’ look by braiding damp hair to create beautiful waves! If you just can’t live without those trusty hair straighteners make sure to use a leave-in conditioner designed to protect your hair against the heat!

Cover up! Whether you are in sunny Spain or just chilling in the back garden, hanging out in the sun without protection for your hair and scalp is the worst thing you can do. Use leave in hair products with SPF protection or cover up in style with a sassy floppy straw hat, the perfect accessory for any beach outfit!

Summer Sun Hats for protection!


So head out into the sun, and show off those glossy locks and don’t forget your SPF!!
