Summer Hair Protection

Summer Hair Protection

We hear to protect our skin, protect our swimsuits during the summer, but we sometimes forget about protecting our hair.

The Blowout Professional gives tips to protect our locks when the sun, salt & pool become our favorite places to be.

Tip 1: UV PROTECTION is a must. Wearing a sun hat or finding a product that has UV protection (although you must reapply it constantly).

Tip 2: PROTECT HAIR before going in the water. Whether salt or pool (even saltwater pools have chlorine), get hair completely wet with tap water. Then use an inexpensive conditioner to seal the hair and form a waterproof barrier. Rinse & reapply often, especially once getting out of the water.

Tip 3: SWITCH UP YOUR WASH ROUTINE during your trip. After a long day of fun we are tempted to shampoo/condition our hair every day. Well, the sun, salt, chemicals are already drying your hair out and shampoo (even the luxe ones) are also drying. Consider co-washing, which is just using conditioner & no shampoo. A sample schedule could be--

  • Day 1: co-wash (only conditioner)
  • Day 2: co-wash (only conditioner)
  • Day 3: regular wash (shampoo & conditioner)

This gives our natural oils time to replenish on the scalp.

Tip 4: DON'T SWITCH PRODUCTS THAT ARE WORKING FOR YOU. Avoid the temptation to switch to 'summer' products-- keep using ones that are working for you.

Tip 5: PREP HAIR before your trip. Use a hair mask on wash day before your travel. Consider bringing your hair mask on the trip to tackle the harshest hair conditions.
