Summertime is filled with days outdoors enjoying the sunshine. Those long days in the park, in the garden or by the beach can wreak havoc for your hair. It could be the increased humidity, prolonged sun exposure or swimming in the sea or chemical swimming pools. To prevent damage to your hair this summer, read on to discover the top 5 summer hair care tips to keep your hair healthy and strong.
top up the hydration levels
We all know we need to drink more water when it's hot, but your hair needs extra hydration too. Keep your hair hydrated in the hot summertime with extra nutrients to restore parched hair. Treat your hair to our Organic Hair Oil, rich in organic sea buckthorn oil and organic argan oil to restore dry hair, increase elasticity and restore shine.
look for vitamin e
It's not just your skin that absorbs UV rays from the sun, but your hair too. Look out for hair care products with Vitamin E. It's a powerful antioxidant which helps to repair the damage caused by free radicals, such as UV rays. It's a key ingredient in our Organic Hair Oil.
turn down the heat
Hot water can be drying on your skin and hair. So the summer is the perfect time to have cooler showers. The cool water will not only help to minimise any drying effects, but can also help protect colour-treated hair from fading.
embrace the natural look
Avoid adding more heat to your hair and leave your hair dryer, curling irons and straighteners in the drawer. Embrace your natural texture and apply a few drops of the Organic Hair Oil after you've towel-dried your hair and then leave to air dry as you finish your morning skincare, or wind down at the end of long summer's day.
switch it up
The summer can also be the perfect time to get a haircut and try a new hairstyle. When your hair becomes dry, the ends can split and become straggly, so regular trims will keep your hair healthy and less prone to breakage. If you're thinking of switching up a long ponytail for a bob or pixie look, how about taking part in our #bysarahponytailchallenge and donating your hair to the Little Princess Trust.
