Summer Hair Care Tips: Our Top Tips To Protect Your Locks in The Sun

(Posted on 23/05/24

As we step into summer, it's time to focus on keeping your hair looking and feeling fabulous. Summer can be tough on your hair, but don’t worry! We're here to share some top tips to ensure your hair stays in peak condition.

Hydration is Key

Summer sun and heat can dehydrate your hair, making it look dry and lifeless, especially if it’s been bleached. Ensure you're using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair moisturised and healthy. 

Wear a Hat

One of the easiest and most effective ways to protect your hair from the sun is to wear a hat. A wide-brimmed hat not only shields your hair from UV rays but also protects your scalp and helps prevent colour from fading.

Limit Heat Styling

The summer heat is already taking a toll on your hair, so try to minimise additional heat styling. Embrace natural hairstyles or use heat-free styling methods. If you do need to use heat tools, always apply a heat protectant to minimise damage such as Nine Yards Easy Life Heat Protection Spray.

Deep Condition Regularly

Deep conditioning treatments are a must during the summer. Use a deep conditioning masque once a week to nourish and repair your hair, especially if it’s been bleached. This will help restore your hair’s natural shine and softness.

Rinse Hair Before and After Swimming

Chlorine from pools and salt from seawater can be incredibly drying and damaging to your hair. To protect your locks, rinse your hair with fresh water before and after swimming. This simple step can help minimise the absorption of chlorine and salt, reducing their harmful effects.

Use a Swimming Cap

For frequent swimmers, wearing a swimming cap can be a great way to protect your hair from the harsh effects of chlorine and saltwater. It creates a barrier that keeps most of the water away from your hair, maintaining its health and integrity.

Combat Chlorine and Saltwater Damage

Chlorine and saltwater can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and brittle. To combat this, always rinse your hair thoroughly with fresh water after swimming and use a clarifying shampoo occasionally to remove any residual chlorine or salt.

K18 Treatments for Extra Care

If your hair is feeling particularly dry or damaged, our in-salon and home maintenance K18 treatments can work wonders. K18 is a revolutionary hair treatment that repairs damage at the molecular level, restoring strength, softness, and bounce to your hair. It’s perfect for bleached or chemically treated hair that needs a bit of extra care.

Stay Hydrated and Eat Well

Healthy hair starts from within. Drink plenty of water and eat a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals to keep your hair healthy and strong from the inside out.
