How to have Shiny, Healthy Hair this Summer


The summer heat is amazing for our tans, but not so amazing for our hair. As the air dries up, so does hair. It can be a hassle to keep your hair shiny and healthy throughout these steamy months, as well as finding the time and money to keep upkeeping it. This does not mean it’s impossible to have glossy locks this summer… With just a few steps you can keep your hair glowing all season.

 

Tips on How to Have Shiny Hair this Summer:

 

Hair Masks: Healthy hair requires a ton of hydration. Hair masks can replenish your hair with oils and nutrients that may be lacking from everyday wear. You should apply a mask weekly, using an application of your choice. Various hair masks include sleep in’s, wash in’s and pre-wash in’s.

 

Maintenance: There are a few things you can do between styling your hair that can help maintain the shine and health. Switching out your regular pillowcase for a silk cover will exponentially improve your hair after sleeping. “Many fabrics, like cotton or polyester, absorb moisture and can cause friction and be abrasive to the hair.” Silk will retain the moisture and keep frizziness at bay. Another maintenance tip is to avoid drying your hair with a towel, but rather with an old t-shirt. This is more gentle on the hair cuticle and will cause less damage.

 

Hair Oils: Last not but not least, adding hair oils after styling will give the extra shine and boost your style needs. Heat styling and products can dry out your hair, so finishing with an oil will instantly add moisture and shine to any do’.
