Heat can be a contributing factor to the dryness of your hair, and in the hot summer months many people may find themselves struggling with brittle, dull, or frizzy hair. It is so important to keep your hair hydrated through the hot months to keep tresses healthy and looking its best.
Tips for keeping hair hydrated:
1. Switch Up Your Shampoo & Conditioner
If your summer activities are causing your hair to be drier than normal, check to see if your cleansing and conditioning duo is available in a richer, more nourishing formula specifically created for dry hair. You can also make the switch to botanical-based, sulfate-free formulations that are extremely gentle on the scalp and hair strands.
Excessive shampooing can make hair more prone to dryness. One method to treat this is called co-washing. Co-washing is the act of washing your hair solely with conditioner. This method is great for keeping your hair moisturized without stripping the natural oils. If you use a cleansing conditioner on your hair, you can wash it more frequently than you may when washing with shampoo, because co-washing is gentler than using harsh detergents. You get all of the benefits of conditioner—softness, shine, manageability—without the added heaviness.
2. Deep Condition
Using a hair mask once a week hydrates and nourishes hair, transforming dry and damaged strands to make your hair more manageable, soft, and healthy. Using a heat cap after applying a deep conditioner opens the hair follicles, ensuring deep moisture penetration and allowing the nutrients of the treatment to absorb easier.
3. Use Hair Mist or Hair Oil
For a light-weight option and daily pick me up, using a hair mist or hair oil instantly hydrates parched strands without weighing hair down. Look for hair mist and hair oil formulas containing powerful hydrating ingredients that also pair well with your specific hair type and porosity.
4. Go Natural
By going natural, it allows your hair to retain its natural moisture and oils while promoting scalp health and hair growth. Protective styles like braids, twists, and buns are easy to achieve without damaging hair and give your scalp and tresses a much needed break.
