Summer Hair Care

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, but it can also wreak havoc on your hair. From sun damage to humidity in Charlotte, there are a variety of factors that can make it challenging to keep your hair looking healthy and vibrant during the summer months. Here are some tips for summer hair care:

  1. Protect your hair from the sun: Just like your skin, your hair can be damaged by the sun’s UV rays. Consider wearing a beach hat or scarf to protect your hair from the sun, or use a hair care product that contains UV protection, like Kevin Murphy’s Everlasting Leave in Spray.
  2. Moisturize your hair: The summer heat can dry out your hair, so it’s essential to keep it moisturized. Use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner along with hair oil to add extra moisture.
  3. Avoid excessive heat styling: Heat styling tools can further dry out your hair and cause damage. Consider letting your hair air dry or using a lower heat setting on your styling tools.
  4. Use a hair mask: A weekly hair mask can help repair and hydrate damaged hair. Look for a mask that contains nourishing ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, or argan oil; we would suggest a REF Intense Hydrate Masque.
  5. Drink plenty of water: Staying hydrated is vital for the health of your hair. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your hair and scalp hydrated from the inside out.
  6. Trim your hair regularly: Regular trims can help prevent split ends and keep your hair looking healthy and vibrant. Aim to get a trim every 6-8 weeks or as needed.
  7. Protect your hair from chlorine and saltwater: Chlorine and salt water can be damaging to your hair, so consider wearing a swim cap or using a protective hair care product before swimming, like a Leave-in Conditioner.
