It’s that time of year where everyone you know is either at the beach or dreaming of going the beach. Get your summer glow going by taking care of your hair. Excess chlorine or sea salt on hair is super damaging in the long run so here are a few tips to maintaining your healthy hair during the summer.
Apply oil to protect the hair from water
Both chlorine & Sea water strip the hair of its natural oils and moisture which eventually dries out the hair. In order to avoid this, apply a shield to avoid the damage. Applying some Hair oil or Hair Mask on the hair pre-swim will protect it from any sort of damage caused from the swimming pool or the ocean. Our Light Miracle Hair Oil will do the trick for Low Porosity Hair and Argan-Shea Hair Mask is great for all hair types.
Always rinse your hair with shower water after a swim
We all know the struggle of wanting to lay on the chaise-longue right after a relaxing dip in the water. But this can be very drying and damaging to the hair. Try to resist the urge to be lazy and head to the closest shower to rinse off any chlorine or sea water left in the hair.
Comb your hair with a wide toothed comb to avoid breakage
Hair is most fragile when its wet. And let’s be realistic, it’s almost always wet at the beach. Avoid combs with thin and tightly packed bristles in order to avoid pulling on the hair too aggressively. Instead, use a wide toothed comb or a detangler which is designed to protect the hair from breakage when wet.
Avoid towel drying your hair, otherwise use a micro fiber towel
Towel drying wet hair is a major NO-NO! Wet hair is extremely fragile and prone to breakage easily so it’s very important to be gentle with wet hair. It is recommended to air dry it, but if necessary, use a cotton t-shirt to do the job.
Treatment every weekend
Treat yourself to a weekly hair mask to contain moisture and protect your hair from all the chlorine and saltwater its exposed to this summer. Our Argan Shea & Coconut Shea hairmasks will give your hair the nourishment it needs.
Protecting hair from sun damage using a hat
Exposure of the hair in the sun for long periods of time can be very damaging in the long run so pack a stylish hat and play your beach volleyball without worrying about your hair.
