Summer Hair Tips: Getting a Trendy and Healthy Summer Look for Your Hair Type

summer hair

With summer just around the corner, everyone’s hitting the gym extra hard, eating right, and getting ready to spend the warmer months in a bikini on the beach. However, as the weather gets warmer and the air gets a little dryer, it can cause extreme havoc on your hair, leaving you looking a little more ragged and a lot less fabulous. Based on your hair type, the following tips will get you the trendy ‘do you deserve, while maintaining healthy locks all summer long.

All Hair Types
No matter what hair type you have, it’s important to keep it protected from the sun’s harsh rays. Simply apply a protective oil such as this one, work it from the scalp to the tips, and then slick your hair back into a ponytail for a look that you can wear for a day on the water.

Straight Hair

If you have straight hair, why not try one of summer’s hottest ‘dos and opt for a top-knot? Want to hydrate your luscious locks while looking stylish? Try combing a conditioner through your hair, working from your scalp to the tips to create a slicked-back look, and then piling your hair on the top of your head for an enviable knot. Plus, as an added benefit, leaving a conditioner in all day will give your straight locks the revitalization they deserve.

Curly Hair

It’s no surprise that curly hair is more prone to drying out and getting damaged than its straighter counterparts. To prevent your curly hair from drying out even more this summer, avoid hair sprays altogether. As drying agents, hair spray causes hair to harden and break off at the ends. Instead, opt for products such as oils, hydrating shampoos and conditioners, and even hair masks like the Rene Furterer hydrating hair mask.

Dry and Damaged Hair
One of the most damaging things that you can do to your hair is to harshly brush it to get the knots out. Instead of trying to manage your mane with just your hands and a brush, opt for a more soothing weapon of choice: a detangling spray. Although detangling sprays were once most commonly used on toddlers who managed to get their hair caught in a brush, detangling sprays like this one have taken over to help dry and damaged hair in a big way. After you hit the shower, towel dry your hair, and spray the detangling solution all over, let the solution sit for 30 seconds, and then gently comb it through. This will leave your dry and damaged locks a lot more manageable and ready to be styled into your favorite look.

Whether you have straight, curly, or dry hair, the sun’s rays can have a big impact on your hair’s health. Luckily, by taking a little more time and trying a few new products, you can prevent your hair from any unnecessary damage.
