Summer hair care tips for women
Protect your hair
Protect your hair from sun damage and pool/sea water damage. During the hottest hours – 12-3pm, wear a hat to cut down on UV damage, you can also use hair sun protection sprays. When swimming be sure to wash or soak your hair in clean water before you dive in, then it’ll absorb less of the pool/sea water, and always wash your hair after swimming.
Cut down on the heat
Try to cut down on using heat to style and dry your hair. Let it dry naturally and skip the straighteners, this will stop your hair becoming overly dry and lack lustre.
Pick a few cute summer hair styles
You’ll feel cooler and fresher if your hair is up out of the way, especially on really hot days. Go for messy-buns and plaits to keep your hair off your neck and leave you feeling cool.
Keep well hydrated by drinking plenty of water and treat your hair to hydrating, moisturising treatments weekly just to keep your tresses healthy and shiny.
Summer hair care tips for men
Use refreshing shampoo and hair treatments.
The heat of summer can lead to your hair and scalp feeling hot, sticky and unpleasant. We recommend using a shampoo that contains tea-tree, mint or menthol. These really invigorate the scalp, giving it a burst of tingling freshness and leave it feeling cool and clean.
Wash hair more frequently
Summer hair needs washing more regularly, this just avoids sweat build up and helps to protect your hair from damage from chlorinated water, so if you’re doing lots of swimming, remember to wash your hair before and after you swim.
Choose lighter hair styling products
It’s a great idea to get a good summer hair cut, maybe a shorter, easier to manage style. This means you can opt for lighter styling products which will feel much fresher and less sticky and weighty on your hair. We like sea-salt sprays for a quick tussled summery look.
