3 Best Hair Care Products for Summer
It’s summer time!
Here are a few things you can do to keep your locks looking their best in the hot weather.
Summertime is the perfect time to let your hair down and show off your natural texture. But just because you’re not covering up doesn’t mean you can neglect your hair care routine. In fact, summertime is when you need to pay extra attention to your locks. The sun, salt water, and chlorine can all take a toll on your hair, leaving it dry, frizzy, and damaged.
But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We’ve rounded up the best hair care products for summer, so you can keep your hair looking its best all season long.
From shampoo and conditioner to hair masks and treatments, these are the products you need to add to your hair care routine this summer.
Summer Hair Care Tips
First, here are a few tips for keeping your hair healthy and beautiful all summer long:
- Protect your hair from the sun. Just like your skin, your hair can be damaged by too much sun exposure. When you’re spending time outdoors, wear a hat or scarf to protect your hair from the harmful UV rays.
- Use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner. Swap out your regular shampoo and conditioner for a hydrating formula that will help to replenish moisture lost due to sun and chlorine damage.
- Invest in a good leave-in conditioner. A leave-in conditioner is a must for summer hair care. It will help to detangle knots, tame flyaways, and protect against further damage.
Hair Care Products You Need For Summer
The problem: We love the sun. But sun damage is a real concern–yes, even for your hair.
The Solution: A multitasking leave-in conditioning agent could be what you need! Try Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Heat/UV Protective Primer ($39.00, 250ml), which provides heat protection for up to 450°F/232°C. It has UV filters that help protect against harmful sun rays.
The problem: Lakes, pools, waves, and surf are great and all but they often have damaging components like salt or chlorine.
The Solution: There are actually sprays designed for just this purpose! Right now, we’re loving AquaGuard Pre-Swim Hair Defense or SwimSpray by SwinBoca. Products like this can help keep a “barrier” between your hair and the ick found in standing water.
The problem: Along with bright, sunny days comes dry air and high temperatures (heat wave, anyone?!). Our hair is sensitive and needs protection from the elements.
The Solution: If sun and swimming leaves your hair uber dry, try La Biosthétique’s Long Hair Weightless Conditioning Oil ($58.00, 150ml). This serum is specially designed for long hair, perfect for beachy waves and flirty ponytails. Argan oil can restore the moisture to all dry lengths and brittle tips.
