Prepping Your Hair For Summer
Changing seasons can do a number on your hair. As we’ve already started to experience some climate changes, you’ve likely noticed your hair needed a little extra TLC. Prepping your hair for summer, now, can really make a difference in your hair’s health and appearance as we actually reach the summer weather. Spending time outside in the heat and sun puts a lot of stress on hair, which is why planning some prep time before you begin to enjoy the summer weather can be so beneficial. We’ve gathered some of the best tips from experts on how you can begin prepping your hair for summer.
Change Your Hair Care Products
Hair care products are a necessary part of any healthy hair care routine, but you shouldn’t be using the same products in the summer that you do throughout the fall and winter months. Just like our skin, our hair has different needs in the warmer weather seasons. Experts stress that using lightweight products is the best option when it comes to using hair care products. The lighter weight products will keep your hair from feeling to weighed down and lacking natural volume. Make it a point to begin transitioning your hair care products now from those that you were using throughout the winter.
Start a Deep Conditioning Treatment
It’s been found that many people experience frizz in their hair because it’s lacking hydration and moisture, resulting in the frizz that occurs when your hair is exposed to a climate that holds a lot of humidity. The best way to prevent your hair from dealing with frizz is to get ahead of the game with your hydration. Now, before we’re in the midst of the summer season, make it a habit of using a deep conditioning treatment on your hair once a week. This will help get your hair into a healthy, hydrated routine and prevent a lot of frizz from occurring in your hair. Additionally, when your hair is well hydrated it’s a lot stronger and healthier overall giving your hair more strength to go into the summer season.
Get a Hair Trim
We can’t forget to mention one of the most important hair prep tips for the summer season. Getting a trim! Think of getting a trim in your hair as a way of starting fresh and eliminating any split ends in your hair. Since our hair is exposed to a lot of heat and other climate elements during the summer season, prepping your hair with a fresh trim cut is a great step to take to get your hair and the ends healthy. That being said, now is the time to book your next trim appointment with your favorite hair stylist. Your hair will be healthier, stronger and ready to take on the summer weather much better than if you left the split ends.
Lastly, try to give your hair a break from heat as much as possible in the weeks leading up to the summer weather. This will help your hair repair and heal itself before its exposed to the summer heat.
