How to Protect Your Hair From the Sun

We wait all year long for the heat of the summer sun. The downside: it can cause some major problems for your hair. Summer heat can damage and dry out your hair, give you an oily scalp, and can even turn your hair green when in contact with chlorine. But fear not! you can beat the heat with these quick and easy hair care tips.

Avoid the Heat

Between the humidity and sun damage, your hair in the summer is already parched enough. Because the sun naturally dries out your hair, you should avoid heat styling as much as possible. We know this can be challenging, but your hair will thank you! Instead, opt for more natural styling techniques like heatless curls or loose waves that add texture, without sacrificing the health of your hair.

Hair Mask

Coloured hair often gets the brunt of summer heat damage… turning once bright and luminous locks into dried out ashy tones. A nourishing mask applied once a week at home is a simple and effective way to help keep you hair in good condition all season long. Hair masks can help revitalize and rehydrate your hair, bringing it back to life.

Wash Less

Did you know that frequent washing strips your scalp from its natural oils? This stimulates an additional production of oil, making your hair extra greasy. The simple solution: wash your hair less. Depending on your hair type, we recommend washing your hair 2-3 times a week. On no wash days, you can still rinse your hair with cold water, since this option still closes the cuticle and seals in moisture.

Treat Your Hair to a Salon Visit

Want to get the very best treatments for your hair? The most effective way to improve the health of your hair in the summer is by paying a visit to the salon. We offer the most sought after conditioning treatments in the industry, including Kertain Treatments. While you’re treating your hair to deep conditioning, cutting off any dead ends can also help make your hair look and feel healthy again.

Protection from the Pool

There is no better feeling in the summer than taking a dip in the pool. Unfortunately, chlorine not only damages your hair, but can even affect your colour. The good news is there are tricks to avoid this. Start by washing your hair under cold water before you go in the pool. Your hair can only absorb so much water so washing it with fresh water first will limit the amount of chlorine it can absorb.
