Summertime is all about spending care-free days outdoors enjoying the warm weather. But with that come a whole host of elements that can wreak havoc on your hair. That’s why creating a summer hair care routine is so important in order to keep your gorgeous hair sleek and healthy throughout these dry, humid months.

Just as the sun damages your skin, it can damage your hair, too. Saltwater and chlorine also take a toll on our tresses. The not-so-pretty outcome: A few weeks into summer, hair that was shiny and easily managed looks and feels fried.

Fortunately, we’re rounding up some of the best summer hair care secrets from our arsenal below.

Use The Best Hair Conditioners

Your hair gets just as thirsty in the hot summertime as you do. So why not treat it to a little moisture-rich refreshment?

Switching your shampoo and conditioner to moisturizing formulas and using hair oil or serum on the ends will help restore parched locks. For added treatment, conditioning masks and live-in conditioners will give a deeper level of moisture.

Avoid Swimmer’s Hair

The salt content in seawater draws water out of the hair and skin, while chlorine strips the hair of its natural protective oils. Prep your hair before and after taking a swim to protect against chlorine and salt water damage by using UV protectant and hair moisture masks.

Another easy hack to keeping your blonde hair gorgeous all summer long is to rinse your hair with fresh, cool water before taking a swim.

Skip The Hot Tools

At least once or twice a week, give your hair a break from blow dryers, flat irons, and curling irons. Get chic summer curls by braiding your hair or pulling it up into a bun before you go to sleep. When you take your hair down in the morning, you’ll have natural beachy waves.

Get a Trim

If all else fails, you might want to start with a trim to get rid of split ends. You might need a mid-season cut, too. Hair really does grow faster in the summer. That’s because there are more hairs in the anagen, or growing stage during late spring and summer than in the middle of winter.
