Cover your Hair
Heat damage doesn't only come from flat irons and blow dryers! Excessive exsposure to the sun can also damage those beautiful locks.
What to do? Wrap your hair in our satin scarf or use a hat to cover your hair. This will protet it from heat damage.
Balance Out the Moisture in the Air
Summer air is filled with humidity and moisture. An easy way to balance out the excess moisture in the air is to make sure you're using some protein in your wash day.
We love using the Powerhouse Protein Cream as a rinse out, leave-in conditioner, or even a hair mask. Our protein cream is SUPER concentrated. To avoid using too much, start with a dime-size amount on wet hair.
Condition Before Jumping in the Water
Before you jump in the pool or ocean, wet your hair with fresh water and apply a moisturizing conditioner.
Your hair can only absorb a limited amount of water. By wetting your hair with fresh water first, you'll limit how much chlorine or salt water gets absorbed. Chlorine and salt water also tend to dry out your hair, so going in with conditioner in your hair will keep your hair from getting too dry!
We love to use our highly moisturizing Dreamy Hair Cream before taking a dip in the water.
Co-Wash More Frequently
With all that sweat, salt-water, and chlooring, you may find yourself thinking you need to shampoo every wash day. Truth is, the more you shampoo, the more you will dry out your curls.
Instead, try limiting your shampoo to once (maybe twice) a week. In between shampoo wash days, try using a conditioner wash (aka co-wash) or no poo (a low to no lathering gentle cleanser).
For a clean, tingly feeling that also leaves our hair and scalp moisturized, we love using our Creamy Hair Cleanser.
Avoid the Wet Bun
After taking a dive in the poool, your instinct may be to pull your hair up into a bun or ponytail. Thing is, when your hair is wet it is in a weak, vulnerable state, making it more proone to damage and breakage.
Instead, let your hair dry in the warm sun before pulling it back!
