Spend­ing more time out­doors could present chal­lenges. The high hu­mid­ity in the at­mos­phere set­tles on your hair, re­sult­ing in limp locks. Be­fore head­ing pool­side, here are some tips to main­tain healthy hair in sum­mer. 1. It’s a fact: the heat dries out your hair. Don’t am­plify pos­si­ble dam­age to your strands by us­ing heated styling tools such as dry­ers or flat irons. 2. The sun strips hair of mois­ture, but don’t over­con­di­tion or over-treat your hair. This causes prod­uct build-up, and if you have thick, vo­lu­mi­nous hair, it will be­come un­man­age­able, soft or flat. 3. The tips of your hair suf­fer the most dur­ing sum­mer. Trim split and dry ends reg­u­larly – it is the best way to keep your hair look­ing good and healthy. 4. If you have nat­u­ral hair, be mind­ful of how cer­tain cli­mates will af­fect your mane. To pro­tect your hair, use anti-humec­tants such as olive and jo­joba oil. To com­bat frizz, avoid us­ing heavy wa­ter-based mois­turis­ers and but­ters. In­stead, opt for light oils and but­ters. Deep­con­di­tion­ing your hair will save you from the stress of wor­ry­ing about frizz – and your hair will thank you for it.
