Taking good care of your hair during the summer is really important for many reasons. A good summer haircare routine will keep your mane looking healthy and feeling great all the way through to fall, whatever your hair type or length.
Whether you have a summer vacation planned or have opted for a staycation this year, you'll need to prepare and protect your hair before swimming in either a pool or the ocean. Both can cause colored hair and completely natural locks to dry out and generally misbehave, so make sure you stay one step ahead! Chlorine and salt water can also cause dyed hair to fade, as can too much exposure to UV rays.
There are some hair care and styling products you just can't leave home without, so for those of you who will be travelling this summer, make sure you have all the essentials you need in your suitcase! After all, there's nothing like consecutive bad hair days to put you in a bad mood, even on vacation.
Being more prone to dryness, curly hair requires some extra TLC during the summer because there are a whole lot of stressors that can lead to frizz, flyaways and breakage. It's important to protect your strands as much as possible, but also to replenish lost moisture and nutrients to keep curly hair feeling strong and looking great.
Keeping your bangs in place also requires a little extra work and/or a can of dry shampoo! Sweat and humidity can wreak all kinds of havoc on your fringe, but you don't have to let it. The good news is that even when your bangs won't do what you want them to no matter how hard you try, there are always bobby pins, headbands and sun hats to fall back on!
