It’s almost summer! Warm weather and beaches are here to stay for the next few months but sun and water damage can dry out your normally sleek and vibrant hair to a brittle, dull texture.
At Bella Salon and Spa in Danvers, MA, we know a few things about hair care and how to keep your hair as healthy as possible during every season! Here are some helpful hair care tips to make sure frizz and split ends don’t stay with you during this summer season! Be sure to schedule an appointment with us to get a fresh new haircut, style, or color just in time for summer.
Hats and headscarves protect both your skin and your hair from the strong and harmful UV rays. Exposing your hair to too much sun can cause your hair to dehydrate as well as fade. Think of wearing a hat to protect your hair the same way we wear sunscreen to protect our skin!
Use UV Shielding Products
Did you know they make conditioners and other hair products with SPF in them? These are a great addition to your hair routine to protect it in the summer from sun damage! They can also help color-treated hair from fading too quickly when exposed to the sun.
Wash Your Hair Less
Washing your hair less is always the main tip, no matter the season, for keeping your hair as healthy as possible. Sometimes people tend to wash their hair more in the summer because they feel their scalp gets more oily or they are sweating more, but try to refrain! The reason why it’s encouraged to not wash your hair too often is that shampooing strips your hair of its natural oils which then causes it to produce more oils.
Minimize Chlorine Damage
Chlorine and hair are not known to be the best of friends. Too much time in chlorine can cause hair to turn green. However, there are things you can do to avoid this. Because dry hair is super absorbent, when you get into chlorine it will absorb instantly in your hair. We suggest rinsing your hair with water before going into the pool so this doesn’t happen. Then, once you get out of the pool, rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar and water before you shower to reduce chlorine damage.
