Why Can Summer Damage Our Hair?

To begin with, I along with you will discover reasons why summer can worsen the health of our hair. Actually, to be more simple, you can basically and simply think that the sunlight can directly affect our skin in a negative way. So, it does, too with our hair. 

As we know, the sun gives off detrimental rays to the outer part of our body. Specifically, in this situation, it has an ability to dry our hair, especially for hair of those treated chemically. From this, we can conclude that the hot weather can shorten the lifespan of your hair and worsen its quality and durability.  

Apart from chemically treated hair, the heat of summer also worsens the damage done to the hair which is normally affected by hairstyling appliances.

The frequency of using hair styling devices affects hair quality. As a result, when it is impacted by the sunlight, it is put into a vulnerable condition. Moreover, when summer is approaching, it is common that people have a habit of swimming or going to the beach. Honestly, I would say that it is so nice and happy. This is a wonderful time for all of us to refresh and reinvigorate ourselves, and recharge our batteries after a long time of commitments to studying and working. However, remember that the chlorine in swimming pools, as well as hair becoming wet in the pool or sea and then drying in the sun frequently throughout the day, takes a toll.

In that case going outside during the summer day, you need to have a plan and some necessary things to minimize the bad effect of hot weather to your hair. The hair care tips for the summer season are shown below. 

Hair Care Tips For A Healthy And Gorgeous Hair In Summer

Simply, hair is similar to us. Sometimes it is healthy or not, because it also depends on each health state of each individual and on how to care for them. When summer is just starting, hair is more shiny, healthy and bouncy and is easily managed. However, if you do not care for them well, in the long run,  they will gradually become tired and weak. 

In addition, the damage looks more obvious and serious when it comes to hair undergoing chemical treatment and color treatment. The hair will become easily and quickly faded and brassy. Even the hair that is uncolored will suffer from sun-induced stress. UV rays cause hair to dry out and rough up the normally smooth cuticle, or outside layer, of the hair shaft.

With such consequences, you need to refer to this post carefully and deeply to understand and then practice the hair care tips into your daily life. 

I believe that these hair tips to protect hair in the hot summer do not only limit the summer season. If in any unpleasant situations that can do harm to your hair, you should remember them. 

Trimming hair at the beginning of the summer.

It is a better idea to start a beautiful but hot summer with a trim for your hair. If you are concerned about the length, do not worry you can cut ends a little. Actually, whatever the season is, it is necessary to get rid of split ends and you may need a new look and new style. Moreover, there is a fact you may need to know that in the summer, hair grows faster compared to others. Therefore, do not hesitate to trim your hair. Another benefit of trimming hair is that it can reduce the tangling process because the ends are often rougher and more dehydrated than the other. 

Wear a hat

Clearly, it is the simplest tip; but also the effective way. It is obvious that covering your hair with a hat protects our hair from the direct sunlight, and keeps color-processed hair from fading. For girls who are so fashionable, they can wear a trendy cap or hairband/scarf.

If you spend a large amount of time outside, for example, sunbathing and playing on the beach, wearing a wide-brimmed hat is so rational. Doing so has a lot of benefits. It not only saves your hair but also your ears, forehead, scalp. Those areas are so vulnerable to skin cancer. So, wearing a hat or simply shielding your strands from the sun is so crucial. Because it not only impacts on the health of hair but also the overall health of people. 

Wet strands before taking a dip

There is a scientific fact that I want to tell you is that making your hair drench with clean water before swimming is so better and beneficial for the health of your hair. When doing so, the mechanism of operation of hair does not allow it to absorb additional saltwater or pool chemicals. 

Moreover, after taking a dip and rinsing your hair, you can use a bottle filled with fresh water to make your hair clean if there is not a shower nearby. 

Switching to a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner

In the hot weather, there are many factors driving you to use the hydrating shampoo and conditioner. Temperature is higher, and it can dry out hair quickly and easily. Moreover, you have to wash your hair more often to deal with the sweat and grime. As a result, it is important for you to utilize hydrating shampoo and then follow a deep-conditioning treatment. 

Skip the hot tools

Do not apply heating appliances too much on hair

I say that but it does not mean you must not use hair styling appliances. Because in many situations, using them is necessary to give you a new look suitable for the events or occasions you join in. Remember that you should limit using them as much as possible. During the hot summer, it is better to give your hair a break from blow dryers, flat irons and curling irons. To lower the frequency of using hair styling devices, before hitting the hay, you can pile your hair up into a bun, a braid or ponytail. And then, the next tomorrow morning, you will have a nice wave.
