Once the summer heat sets in, you have to deal with the sweltering heat every day. While summer is the perfect time for outdoor activities, visits to the beach, ice cream, and lazy moments by the pool, it just doesn’t bring out the best in your hair. We at Radical Hair are committed to providing our clients with the best hair care and styling services. Here are some tips to keep your hair healthy this summer:
- Bring Out The Floppy Hats
Your hair can suffer significant damage from exposure to the UV rays of the sun. You can also end up with scalp burn which looks awful once it starts peeling and it hurts too. Make it a point to wear a hat when you are out in the sun for many hours.
- Give Heat Treatments A Break
Hair straightening, curling, and using hair rollers may help you alter the style of your hair. But they also leave it looking dull, dry and lifeless. The summer heat exacerbates this problem. Heat treatments during the summer months can cause irreversible damage to your hair. Keep your hairstyle simple and use the blow dryer on cool mode.
- Rinse Your Hair After A Swim
Chlorinated water can affect the condition and appearance of your hair drastically, leaving it dull and dry. Ultimately this can result in split ends and breaking. Always rinse your hair thoroughly after getting out of the pool. Use a good quality shampoo with ethylene tetra-acetic acid content as it will help prevent damage. We also recommend the use of the La Biosthetique SOEIL Range which aims at protecting your hair against UV RAYS.
- Don’t Over-Wash Your Hair
It’s never a good idea to overwash your hair regardless of the season. But you will be doing your tresses a favour if you wash your hair only when necessary. Over-washing during the hot summer months causes dryness as it strips the oils from your scalp. To combat dryness, wash your hair with a hydrating shampoo such as the La Biosthetique Dry Hair Shampoo and a complementing Dry Hair conditioner.
- Use a Leave-In Conditioner such as La Biosthetique Beatue Conditioner Express
Hair can dry out quickly during the summer months, but you can combat this problem by using a leave-in conditioner like the La Biosthetique Beatue Conditioner Express. Or Dry Hair Spray. The product will help attract & hold more moisture to your hair strands. There are many different leave-in conditioners on the market. So, it’s best to consult your hairdresser in Sydney about which would best-suited for your hair.
- Get Your Hair Cut
Hair ends tend to dry out faster during the summer months, and this is an excellent time to get your hair cut. Ask your stylist to trim the edges and get your hair styled as you like. Towards the end of summer, get your hair professionally conditioned at a good hair salon in Sydney and get another hair cut too.
