How to Care for Your Hair in Summer

Your hair can suffer in the summer heat, just like the rest of your body. Therefore it makes sense to give it some extra attention in the hot weather. Healthy hair starts with a healthy body, so the first thing you need to do is to check your diet and ensure you are getting all the proteins and nutrients your hair needs. Stress and lack of sleep can also affect your hair, so try to live a healthy lifestyle so that your hair is ready to face the summer.

Remember to keep hydrated too. Your skin, your hair and your scalp all need plenty of water to stay healthy in summer, so don’t wait until you’re thirsty before taking a drink. By the time you’re thirsty, you are already feeling the effects of dehydration.

Make sure you get your hair trimmed regularly, particularly in the summer. Split ends can cause hair to break, and damaged hair is more vulnerable to the effects of the sun. Have a trim at least every four to six weeks to keep your hair strong and healthy.

In the middle of the day, when the sun is at its strongest, cover your hair with a scarf, bandana or hat. Long hair shows the effects of sun damage more than short hair, so you should definitely cover up if you have long hair.

That said, wearing a swimming cap in the sea or the pool can actually damage your hair, especially when it’s hot. The fabric that the cap is made from may stick to your hair, causing damage when it’s removed. It’s better to apply a little of your favourite conditioner to damp hair before you swim. Apple cider vinegar is also good for protecting hair from the heat of the sun and the effects of the chlorine and salt in the swimming pool and the sea.

Remember that you need to protect your hair as well as your skin when you are outdoors in the summer. Your hair can’t get sunburned, but it can get badly damaged by the sun, so take care of it.
