Summer brings warm sunshine, beach days, and pool parties, but all the fun in the sun can be damaging to hair. Unlike winter time, our hair is exposed to far more chemicals and harmful UV rays during the summer. All of this plus the extra heat and humidity of summer months can wreak havoc on hair.

The secret to beautiful summer hair is remembering to care for it properly. You may need to adjust your hair care routine to protect hair during the summer. Follow these simple summer hair care tips and you’ll have healthy beautiful hair all summer long.

1. Clean and Moisturize
Hot summer months can cause your scalp to produce more oil so you’ll probably be washing your hair more often. Be sure to use a moisturizing shampoo and deep conditioner so that your hair stays hydrated.

2. Protect Yourself
You know that you need to apply sunscreen to your skin, but did you know your scalp and hair also need to be protected from the sun? UV rays are dangerous and can burn the scalp and dry out hair. The best way to protect your scalp and hair from sun damage is to wear a hat. For extra protection, you can also use a leave-in conditioner with SPF. Take a small spray bottle with you to the beach and spray down your strands every few hours.

3. Stay Away From Alcohol
Sometimes we need a little help getting that wavy beach hairstyle and may need to use some styling products. Try not to use products that have alcohol in them. The alcohol can be very drying to hair and leave it feeling like straw.

4. Skip The Heat
Your hair is already getting exposed to enough heat, so try to limit how often you use a blow dryer or other hot styling tools. Summer is all about being free, so try some low maintenance hair ideas. Let your hair air dry and embrace your natural texture.

5. Eat Healthy
A healthy diet will help keep your hair healthy. Fortunately many fruits and vegetables are in season during the summer time, so it’s easier to give your hair the vitamins and minerals it needs to grow long and healthy.

6. Don’t Forget To Trim
Frizz can be a major problem during the summer, and split ends are usually the cause of this. Keep your ends trimmed every 6-8 weeks and you won’t have to worry about the frizzies.

7. Style Softly
Hair accessories are a great way to create new styles for the summer. Throw out all your hard plastic ties, clips, and other accessories that snap and break your hair. Use only soft accessories like scarves that won’t damage your hair.

8. Get Smooth
Natural oils add lightweight moisture that smooth hair and prevent frizz. Instead of using a silicone-based gel that coats your hair with product, apply some Moroccan oil or coconut oil to your hair while it’s still damp and let air dry. The natural oils will absorb into your hair instead of just coating it.

9. Hydrate
Each strand of hair is made up of 1/4 water so staying hydrated is very important in keeping your hair soft and healthy. Drink plenty of water during the summer, even if you’re not outside a lot. Water will not only keep you hydrated, it will also help your scalp retain moisture.

10. Stay Out Of The Pool
Blondes may show a green tinted hair color more easily, but every hair color and hairtype is affected by the chemicals in a pool. Chlorine and other algicides can suck the moisture out of hair and even make hair look green or coppery. Tie your hair up before going for a swim. If your hair has to get wet, spray in a leave-in conditioner before swimming and wash your hair immediately after.
