- Protect Your Hair from the Sun
Just like our skin, our hair can get damaged by the sun's harmful UV rays. The sun can cause dryness, brittleness, and even discoloration of the hair. To protect your hair, wear a hat or a scarf when you're out in the sun. You can also use hair our Hair Mask, which has Meadownfoam seed oil, a natural heat resistant oil to shielding protect your hair from the sun's rays.
- Keep Your Hair Hydrated
During the summer months, the heat, humidity, and sun can leave your hair feeling dry and brittle. To keep your hair hydrated, make sure to regularly use our Gentle Shampoo and Nourishing Conditioner.
Consider using our leave-in conditioner or hair mask to lock in moisture and keep your hair healthy. You can also use our Intense hair oil to help nourish and hydrate your hair.
- Use a Wide-Tooth Comb
When combing out wet hair, use a our Curly Comb instead of a brush. This will prevent breakage and damage to your hair, which can be especially important during the summer when your hair is more fragile. Our comb will also help detangle your hair without pulling, tugging or damaging your curly locks.
- Embrace Your Natural Texture
Summer is the perfect time to embrace your natural hair texture. Instead of trying to straighten or curl your hair, let your natural texture shine through. You can also experiment with different hairstyles that work with your natural hair texture. For example, you can try protective styles like braids, buns, or top knots to keep your hair out of your face while still looking stylish.
- Protect Your Hair When Swimming
Chlorine and saltwater can be harsh on your hair, so it's important to protect it before you take a dip. Consider using a swim cap or applying a leave-in conditioner or our detangling spray before getting in the water. After swimming, rinse your hair with fresh water to remove any salt or chlorine residue. .
- Avoid Heat Styling
Heat styling tools like flat irons and curling irons can cause damage to your hair. Instead of using these tools, let your hair air dry or try using a diffuser attachment on your blow dryer. When you do use the diffuser, make sure you use it on your lowest heat and lowest power setting.
You can also try styling your hair while it's still damp to achieve a natural, beachy wave.
- Trim Your Hair Regularly
Regular trims are essential for keeping your hair healthy and preventing split ends. Schedule a trim every 6-8 weeks to keep your hair looking its best. Trimming your hair regularly will also help keep it looking full and voluminous.
