Switch Up Your Summer Hair Care Routine   


Summer is great for so many things – skin-baring fashion, dewy daytime makeup and not to mention those luscious poolside refreshments. One thing that’s not quite so great – the heightened upkeep needed to keep our hair in tip-top condition. Here’s how to keep your locks healthy and hydrated this summer season.

  • Banish frizz with regular hair masks

A simple once-a-week hair mask can go a long way towards caring for frazzled summer strands. Keep in mind though that if your hair is very thick or super long, your hair will need a lot more product. You won’t go wrong with the cult classic It’s a 10 Miracle Hair Mask. True to its name, it promises to offer ten benefits to tired strands –everything from minimizing breakage to treating color treated damage.

At the higher end of the spectrum is the celebrity favorite Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 Repairing Treatment. It works equally well for every hair type with its patented formula working to repair the damaged parts within the hair strands.

  • Switch to a nourishing shampoo and conditioner

During the high summer heat, an ordinary shampoo and conditioner simply won’t cut it. Rather swap in a more hydrating formula to ramp up the protective benefits. A great range to try is L’Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Solar Sublime UV Filter Shampoo and Conditioner which offers sun protection plus aloe vera and vitamin E to nourish the hair from within.

If your hair is fine or you have an oily scalp, a great sulfate-free shampoo is the Bouclème Hydrating Hair Cleanser. For a summer spin, it has added sea salt to boost your locks with volume and bounce while leaving hair deeply cleansed and with a glossy sheen.

  • Spray on the SPF

It’s not only your skin that needs to be protected from the harmful effects of the sun. In fact, our hair may be even more sensitive to heat and sun damage during summer, not to mention the salt and chlorine from swimming. We love a spritz of Soleil Huile Sirene Hair Oil Mist from Kérastase before any lengthy exposure to the sun. With a nourishing blend of Vitamin E, coconut oil and UV filters, hair is left nourished and cared for.

  • Embrace your natural texture

Yes, that means giving your trusted straighteners a break, even if it’s just for the summer. Think of this season as a holiday for your locks from all heated tools. Opt instead for a natural haircare regime. After washing and towel-drying your hair, comb through a smoothing cream like the lightweight GK Hair Leave In Cashmere Hair Cream, a natural argan-infused formula which tames frizz, adds shine and even protects against the sun. Then, after letting your strands air dry, comes the real winner – a sea salt spray to get bouncy beach waves. Look no further than Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray, a lightweight spray that adds volume and leaves locks textured and softly curled for that sexy surfer look.
