Summertime is finally here, which means it’s time to enjoy the gorgeous weather! Typically with increased time outside, comes increased sun exposure to our hair. Today on the blog, we’re addressing what can cause damage to your hair during the summer months, and how we recommend avoiding it! Enjoy your summer without sacrificing your healthy locks.
What can cause damage to the hair during summertime?
Many factors can cause damage to your hair during the warm months, but the sun is one of the biggest culprits. The sun emits harmful rays that can dry out your hair, and this effect is worsened if your hair is color-treated.
Another element that can cause damage to your hair during this season is any chlorine or chemicals from swimming pools. Combining these elements with extensive heat exposure can really dry out your hair.
5 Ways to Protect Your Hair During the Summertime
1. Start with a trim
Start the summer season with a fresh cut or trim to get rid of dry, dead ends. Consider asking your stylist about a deep conditioning treatment to nourish your strands and give them a boost. Click here to book a trim at one of our five Omaha salons!
2. Lay off the hot tools
The last thing your hair needs during the sunny summer months is more heat! Skip the flat irons, curling wands, and blow dryers, and opt for a natural air-dried look.
