There are few things as sweet as the summer. With pool parties, beach weekends, barbeques, and rooftops on the horizon, we’ve officially left our worries in the winter. Well, most of them, that is. Some of us are still concerned about our tresses! After all, the effects of winter can linger and after months of cold weather, your hair may still be dealing with the aftermath. So, it makes sense if your love for summer hasn’t washed away your concerns about how to get healthier hair (or at the very least healthy-looking locks). And unfortunately, as carefree as summer may be, the arrival of sun, sea, and sand does pose some additional risks when it comes to keeping hair nourished and healthy. Thankfully, however, all hope is far from lost! Whether you have short, medium, or long hair, never fear—it’s possible to have healthy hair all summer. Just take note of these five hair care tips to learn how to keep your hair healthy!
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, factors including the sun and chlorine can cause dryness and damage to your strands. To relieve some of this, it’s a good idea to integrate key hair treatments into your routine. A nourishing mask can work wonders for your hair once or twice a week and a hydrating, oil-based hair serum (or other leave-in products formulated with oils, such as the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil-In-Cream) makes a perfect beach bag accessory to nourish on the go.
Time out in the sticky heat, ocean, or pool can mean washing your hair more frequently. If that’s the case, the shampoo you use becomes even more important than usual. Dry hair especially needs a nourishing shampoo and conditioner to replenish your strands with conditioning agents. Look for a hair care system that offers rich moisture and is formulated with oils or other ultra-nourishing ingredients, like the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Conditioner.
We all love beachy waves, but leaving thick or curly hair to its own devices in the hot, salty air can result in tangles that cause breakage. Save yourself some exasperation at the end of the day with a style that keeps hair in check. Add a few spritzes of a wave spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray, to towel-dried hair, then braid for an easy, active style that will leave you with fewer tangles at the end of the day. Even better, after unweaving your braid, you’ll be left with loose, effortless waves that are perfect for taking your look from the beach to the bar (with the help of a little dry shampoo, of course).
Nothing makes hair look more dry and less healthy-looking than frizz—with dry, split ends being a close second. Frizz is often the result of dehydration, which can happen if the natural oils your scalp produces don’t make it all the way down your hair strands. This frequently happens with curly hair, so take caution if your strands resemble spirals! One way to do this is with frizz-taming products, which help replenish hair with moisture, making your mane smoother and less frizzy. To keep frizz at bay, we recommend the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-In-Serum, which provides humidity and frizz control and can be applied to dry or damp hair.
Speaking of dry ends, pay extra attention to this vulnerable part of your mane during the summer, when the elements can make them dryer and more prone to damage. Focus shampoo on the scalp rather than the ends of your hair and do the opposite with conditioner. For extra protection, add the L’Oréal Paris EverStrong Break Proof Lotion to your daily routine. Formulated with fortifying goji, this hair treatment helps protect against breakage, repair split ends, and defend against UV rays and heat styling.
Now that you know how to get healthier hair in time for summer, you can carry on with the endless fun this season has to offer. Enjoy!
