Our hair tends to have different needs each season, and you’ll have to give it some extra attention now that summer is here. Sun damage will leave your hair in pretty bad shape if you don’t take proper care of it, and these five tips can help you give it the attention it craves.

Right Products

Shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks that you’re using all year long may not be as effective in the summer, so consider looking for products that offer UV and heat protection.

Avoiding Heat Styling

Blow dryers, curling irons, and straighteners are best left for the next season because excessive heat won’t do your hair any favors in the summer when it’s best to dry and style it naturally.

Hats & Scarves

In addition to being a pretty cute accessory, hats and scarves are a must for the summer months because they can protect your hair, face, and neck from damaging sun rays.

Rinsing After Swimming

The first thing you should do after coming home from the beach or the pool is rinse your hair because saltwater or chlorinated water can lead to even more damage.

Summer Hairstyles

Wearing your hair down isn’t the best idea in the summer. Hairstyles such as buns, braids, and updos can keep your hair protected while helping you avoid the heat.
