Summer is here, and that means it's time to get your travel on, hit the beach, and enjoy all the fun summer festivals. But for those of us with beautiful textured hair, summer can bring unique challenges. From maintaining moisture to keeping those curls popping, we've got your back with these 10 essential summer hair tips tailored just for you.
Lock in the Moisture:
Our textured hair thrives on moisture, especially during the summer heat. Invest in hydrating shampoos and conditioners designed for textured hair such as our Aloe Vera Shampoo & Deep Conditioner System. Look for products enriched with ingredients like aloe vera, shea butter, manuka honey or argan oil to keep your locks beautifully moisturized.
Protect Your Hair:
The sun can be harsh on our hair, causing color fading and dryness. Opt for hair products that offer UV protection such as our Coffee-Infused Caffeine HRT Elixir, which naturally protects against UV damage for the hair and skin.
Trim and Thrive:
Get ahead of split ends by scheduling a trim before summer is in full swing. This not only promotes healthier growth but also prevents damage from traveling up the hair strands. It’s best to get trims every 4-6 weeks to help your hair retain length and stay healthy.
Embrace Easy Styles:
Let's keep it real – we want styles that look great and keep us cool. Embrace low-maintenance looks like protective styles, braids, or twists. These not only keep your hair in check but also add a touch of chic to your summer vibes. Keep your scalp healthy too with our nutrient-rich oils.
Pool and Beach Prep:
Chlorine and saltwater can be a struggle for textured hair. If you plan to get your hair wet, first wet your hair with clean water before diving in – this reduces the absorption of harsh chemicals. After swimming, rinse well and use our Aloe Vera Shampoo & Deep Conditioner System to rid of your hair of chlorine and saltwater.
Taming the Humidity Beast:
Humidity can be a blessing and a curse. To beat the frizz, try our Silk & Honey Hair Mask for a deep conditioning mask that can bring life and moisture back into your hair.
Break Up with Heat:
Give your hair a break from heat styling tools. Embrace your natural curls and tresses by air-drying whenever you can. If heat is a must, don't forget to use a heat protectant spray or our Pumpkin Hair Serum.
Hydration Inside Out:
Healthy hair starts with a healthy body. Drink water like it's going out of style to keep your hair and body hydrated. Snack on water-rich fruits and veggies to increase your hydration game.
Sleep in Silk:
Upgrade to a silk or satin pillowcase. These materials are gentle on your hair, reducing tangles and breakage while you catch those Z's.
