Summer is in the air and our Pure Elements team is here with our top hair care tips for the season! It’s important to properly take care of your hair all year long, but your hair and scalp face unique challenges in the summer months. Check out our must-follow tips below.
Protect Your Hair and Scalp from the Sun!
Like any other part of your body, your hair and your scalp can suffer from the sun’s intense rays. UV rays can cause your hair to become dry and brittle and can even fade color. You can also get sunburnt on your scalp, and as we know, the sun can cause severe damage and even skin cancer. When possible, we recommend wearing a hat to protect the top of your head. It’s also incredibly important to wear sunscreen every day. Oftentimes, a place where sunscreen is needed but typically overlooked is your scalp. We know that greasy hair is never ideal, so instead of using body or face sunscreen, snag yourself some scalp specific hair mist! This type of product is designed to protect your scalp and hair from the sun’s rays and won’t make your you greasy.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
The heat and humidity of summer can leave your hair dry and frizzy! A great way to combat this is to keep your hair, and yourself, hydrated. Drink plenty of water and supply your hair with the nourishment it needs to protect itself. One of our favorite defenses against the heat and humidity is the Mr. Smith Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner combo! These products will provide your hair with the moisture it needs to stay soft and smooth this season. We also love the LOMA intensive deep conditioner for those who are looking to rebuild their hair strength and are in need of intense moisture.
Use Heat Protectant Spray!
Whenever you are styling your hair with a hot tool it’s incredibly important to use a heat protectant spray! Styling tools like blow dryers, flat irons, and curling irons can cause significant damage to your hair, especially during the summer months when it is already facing other issues. If you’re looking for a new heat protectant, try out the Eufora Thermal Defense Prep. This multi-benefit spray protects your hair from heat up to 428°F and also acts as a detangler.
Visit Our Pure Elements Salon!
A visit to the salon is a great way to keep your hair in tip top shape. We recommend a fresh trim during summer as it is a great way to keep your hair healthy. Regular trimming helps to prevent split ends and breakage and can make a significant difference in the over health of your hair. While visiting our Pure Elements salon, ask us about our conditioning treatment and our organic keratin treatment. Both are great options for keeping your hair nourished and frizz free.
