Summer is a great time for music festivals, vacations, and pool parties, but all of those things can wreak havoc on your hair unless you get into some good hairstyle habits. To protect your strands from unnecessary damage, check out the haircare tips below!

Use gentle accessories

Your hair is likely to be more vulnerable to breakage than usual after prolonged exposure to the sun, chlorine and/or sea salt. So, to minimize the likelihood of snapping off any weak ends, stick to hair ties and headbands that won't rip through your hair, with the elastic totally covered and, ideally, without any metal joints.

FYI, scrunchies fit the bill perfectly!

Be extra careful with wet hair

When your hair is wet or even damp post-swim, take care not to stress it out too much, or rough it up with a towel. Instead, wrap your hair up to dry, using a microfiber towel to absorb as much water as possible. You should also avoid brushing wet hair, but if you absolutely have to detangle, take your time working out any knots with a fine-tooth comb.

Before going for a swim, you should also make sure your hair is totally wet beforehand. That way, it'll absorb less chlorinated water which can seriously dry out your tresses afterward.

Lay off the heat

By keeping heat styling to a minimum, you'll reduce your chances of heat damage and cut back on the overall stressors your mane is subjected to throughout the summer. Beach waves and messy braids are perfect for laid back sunny looks, all you need is some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray to perfect the texture.

Rehydrate your hair

To replenish lost moisture and keep your locks strong and healthy, regular hair masks and deep conditioners are essential throughout the summer months. You should also keep some leave-in conditioner and hair oil on hand to top up between washes.

Get regular trims

To prevent any split ends from moving up the hair shaft, stick to your regular trim schedule. Otherwise, you run the risk of losing more length than you'd like come fall.

Wear a hat

If you've had your eye on a big, floppy movie-star style hat for a while, go ahead and treat yourself right now! Wearing a hat will protect both your head and your hair from UVA and UVB rays, both of which can be magnified when the hair is wet.
