6 Ways to Keep Your Hair Hydrated This Summer

by Wasifa Ahmad Hasan

Sure, dry hair sounds like more of a winter than summer problem, but hear us out! Your hair can get severely dried out from a number of different factors in the summertime. For example: sun exposure, chlorine, and even saltwater. Here’s how you can combat these and keep your hair hydrated this summer without sacrificing any fun, as suggested by hair stylist Tony Odisho.

Heat Style Less Often

We know how hard it can be to put down the blow dryer and curling iron, but this is important. If you can even just go a few days with your natural hair texture, it will do your hair a lot of good. If you really can’t stand how your hair looks, try some heatless hairstyles like braids or buns. The benefits to lessening heat styling are immeasurable!

Use a Heat Protectant

If you absolutely must heat style your hair, be sure to use an effective heat protectant. We recommend 3-in-1 Mist because it packs so many benefits into one bottle. Not only does it protect against heat, but it also protects against UV rays and has detangling properties! It’s a must for your next beach day.

Brush Regularly

Brushing out your hair often helps distribute healthy oils from your scalp so they can moisturize your hair naturally. Be wary if you have naturally curly hair, however. If you have straight or wavy hair, this step is essential. We recommend brushing with a boar bristle paddle brush at least twice a day, especially if you have hair extensions.

Deep Condition Semi-Regularly

Deep conditioning is an easy way to rehydrate your hair quickly. However, you should make sure to check the ingredients and only use products that are free of sulfates and parabens. Sulfates and parabens actually dry out your hair and can even compromise your color! Luckily, the Hydrate Masque (formerly known as Intense Conditioner) is free of those harmful ingredients.

This may seem like an odd inclusion on a list of hair tips, but it’s actually very important. If your body is hydrated, it’s easier to keep your hair hydrated. It’s really as simple as that. If you’re spending a long day out in the hot sun, be sure to fill your water bottle (or bottles) ahead of time!

Whatever your hair care regimen is, be sure to carve out some time and choose products specifically to keep your hair hydrated this summer.
