This week welcomes the official start to summer and when the seasons change it is also time to make some modifications to your hair routine to keep it healthy and beautiful.
Summer weather amps up the heat and the suns intensity making oh so important to use products with good UV protection. Natural and colored hair alike will lighten in the sun and become dull but using a a good leave in conditioner like Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream will not only keep hair shiny but it has UV protection which will keep your color looking vibrant. It will also help fight the added humidity summer brings by fighting that dreaded frizz.
With the hot and humid temperatures you might find your hair getting greasier than usual. Heat prompts sebaceous glands to churn out more oil, and perspiration compounds the problem. To keep your hair looking clean we turn to none other than the dry shampoo. A good dry shampoo like Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray not only absorbs oil at the roots without powdery residue but it will add volume and provide added UV protection for your hair.
And what is summer without pool parties and trips to the beach? Those days spent swimming can expose your hair to chlorine and saltwater which parch your locks making them dry and brittle. To protect your hair you can prep it before swimming. Dry hair will absorb the first moisture it is exposed to so if you can, wet your hair prior to swimming and work in a leave in conditioner (especially on those ends). This will limited the amount of chlorine or saltwater your hair can absorb. Also after swimming rinse your hair thoroughly with fresh water.
Enjoy your summer with gorgeous hair!
