It's been a loooooong winter & most people are ready to come out of hibernation looking their best! So naturally the first step in the beautification process is a visit to the hair salon.
Once you spend all your time & money getting your hair perfect for summer lets not let the sun's harsh rays and that bitch we call humidity destroy it!
The sun & heat can mercilessly fry your hair & ruin your color. And we're gong for shiny and smooth - not fried & frizzy.
So here are my favorite tips to keep your hair healthy & beautiful all summer long!
Cover up! - keep your hair covered as much as you can to protect it from the sun.
Reduce the Heat - let your hair air dry when you can - if your hair is way too frizzy to air dry you might want to consider a smoothing treatment like the Brazilian Blowout or putting it up in a loose & comfortable style or braid.
Detangle, Detangle, Detangle! - use a wide tooth comb or your Wet Brush from ends to roots to loosely detangle hair - don't rip through your hair causing damage & breakage. This paddle brush version of the wet brush is my go to fave!
Stay Hydrated - drink lots of water to keep your hair & skin hydrated & healthy.
Get a Dusting - ask your stylist to regularly give you a dusting - cutting off just the littlest amount to prevent splint ends & promote hair growth.
Mask It! - put your favorite mask in your hair & put it up loose & comfortable - let that mask bake in the sun - when you shampoo & rinse it out your hair will thank you for it.
Heat Protection Spray - use a spray to protect your hair from harmful UV rays when you know you're going to be in the sun for a long period of time. We protect our skin & eyes - why not our hair too?!
