5 Ways to Care for Your Summer Hair


Did you know that the sun not only damages your skin, but your hair as well?  Here are five ways that you can protect your hair from the damaging rays of the sun.


1. Cut Back on Using Hot Tools

Take a break from the blow dryer, curling iron and flat irons a couple of days a week.  Instead place your hair in a bun, braid or ponytail.  How about some beach waves? You can also accessorize your hair with a pretty headband or barrettes.


2. Apply UV Protection to Your Hair

There are hair care products that contain UV filters for the hair.  They come in spray, gel and cream formulas.  They help to protect your hair from sun damage and protect your color from fading.  Wearing a sun hat also helps. It will protect your hair, scalp, ears and face from over exposure to the sun.  These are areas that are vulnerable to skin cancer.


3.Give Your Hair a Deep Conditioning Treatment

Products like Finesse Restore and Strengthen Moisturizing Shampoo along with Finesse Max Keratin  Deep Conditioning Keratin Treatment are designed to give your hair  deep penetrating proteins to help strengthen it and keep it looking healthy.




This 5 minute weekly deep conditioning treatment is infused with repairing hydrolyzed keratin, vitamin E rich safflower seed oil, and moisturizing aloe. It helps to restore and strengthens dry, damaged hair. The treatment should be applied with a wide tooth comb to help distribute it evenly without further damaging the hair.  It costs less than 2 dollars and has a great coconut scent.  It can be found in stores like Target (check Target.com for a store near you), Meijer, HEB, Harmon and more.


4. Give Your Hair a Trim

Keeping your hair well maintained is a great way to stay ahead of the damaging effects of the sun, like frizz.  Be sure to get your hair trimmed regularly and apply an anti-frizz oil or serum to add shine before or after styling.  You only need a tiny drop of oil.  Any more than that can weigh your hair down and make it look limp.


5. Pre Swim Conditioning

Before heading out to the beach or pool, wet your hair an apply a leave-in conditioner.  This will help to keep your hair from absorbing as much saltwater or pool chemical.  Also, be sure to rinse your hair after swimming to rid it of any excess chemicals or saltwater.  Keeping a mist bottle with water and conditioner in your beach bag is a smart idea for keeping your hair moist.
