SUMMER HAIR CARE TIPS
By Suki Duggan
Although many summer photo shoots depict long healthy hair and a glowing, sun-kissed skin, we all know that summer’s sun and humidity can wreak havoc on our beauty regime. Here are some easy tips for getting hair in shape this summer while not spending a lot of cash.
Tip 1: Lay off the hot styling tools: If you normally use hot hair tools (blow dryers, hot irons, electric curlers) every day, give your hair a break and let it air dry. You know the humidity will just undo all of your work the minute you step outside. Braid your hair on summer days, and at night, you will have seductive waves.
Tip 2: Protect your hair from damaging UV rays: The sun’s UV rays are just as damaging to our hair as they are to our skin. Not only does the sun make our hair dry and weak, it also can make color-treated hair appear brassy. Wear a UPF protective hat or invest in a hair care product with SPF.
Tip 3: Pack in the nutrients: If you break the above rules, make sure you take extra precautions to repair your hair. Give it extra conditioning and protection.
