We all love the long and lazy days of summer… but your hair might not. In between the hot weather, the humidity and all the sun exposure, it can lead to a host of hair conundrums. But does that mean you should hide inside your house for the rest of summer? Definitely, that is not part of your options. We’ve covered some common hair problems in the summer and tips on how to solve them- stat!
The Problem: Colour Fade
The Solution: Chemicals from swimming in the pool is one of the number one nemesiss of coloured hair in the summer. Hence, it is important to prep your hair before dipping in the pool. Make sure that you saturate your hair with fresh water so that chemicals and water from the pool cannot penetrate into your hair cuticle. A colour protecting shampoo can also aid in your effort to preserve hair colour.
The Problem: Frizzy Hair
The Solution: Hot weather and humidity combine to make frizzy hair a common sight during summer. The key to stopping this problem is to make sure that your hair cuticle is smooth. An anti-frizz serum provides that sealing effect while also giving a healthy gloss on the surface of the hair. You should never leave the house without it in the summer.
The Problem: Burnt Hair/Scalp
The Solution: Yes, it is not just your skin that is prone to sunburn – your scalp and hair can get burnt too! Find a leave-in product with sun protection capabilities to keep sun from damaging and burning your hair. Also, if you can find a product with moisturising benefits, then it also helps to give a smooth finish without making the hair feel flat. You can also wear head gear such as a hat or scarf to protect from the direct exposure to the sun. Just make sure to carry dry shampoo with you to instantly plump up volume in your hair.
The Problem: Flyaway
The Solution: The same factors that bring on frizz can also cause flyaway formation. The key to fixing flyaway is to refrain from using too much product. When combing your hair, try to push it back and away from your face. Use your hand to smooth any strands right after combing so you can fight off flyaways.
