Summer is the season we all look forward to -- beach days, vacations, long days, and fireworks. But you can’t forget about caring for your hair while you’re having all that fun. If you’re wearing hair extensions as part of your summer look, make sure to keep them healthy and looking fabulous. Here are some summer hair care tips to follow whether you are wearing hair extensions or not:
Protect against the sun: UV rays don’t just damage your skin; they can also make your hair dry and brittle. When spending more than an hour in the sun, wear a sun hat or use hair sunscreen (yes, this is a real thing!)
Swimming: Chlorine and saltwater are not friendly to your hair. Before swimming, rinse your hair in cold water and apply a deep conditioner. This helps prevent your hair from soaking up the chlorinated water, which causes damage.
Staying hydrated: Hydration starts from the inside out. Drink lots of water to keep your skin and hair looking great. Plus, you’ll be able to take the heat better. You can also use a hair moisturizing serum will help keep your hair from drying out and creating split ends.
Take it easy: Summer is also a great time to give heat tools and styling a rest. The natural, low maintenance look is in anyway, and the heat of summer is taxing enough on your locks.
With these easy steps, you can keep your hair looking brilliant all summer long!
