5 Tips for Summer Hair Care

Grab your shades and sunscreen because summer is here! No matter how you’re enjoying the summer sun, it’s important to keep your hair healthy during the hottest months of the year. From sun to chlorine damage, we have you covered with 5 hair care tips for a hassle-free summer look!

1. Maintain regular haircuts

Before diving into your summer haircare product lineup, head to your local Great Clips salon for a fresh cut! Whether you want to make some waves with a new, trendy style or are looking for a simple trim, a fresh haircut makes a difference for healthy hair growth. Don’t forget to use Online Check-In so you can dive back into your summer fun!

2. Use a UV protection product

Too much sun is harmful to not only your skin, but also your hair. To prevent sun damage, use a product that protects your hair from UV rays. The Solutions by Great Clips Quick-Dry Pre-Styler works perfect for all hair types and will also keep your hair soft and  hydrated during the hottest summer days!

3. Keep your hair moisturized

Whether you’re lounging on the beach or going on a hike, it’s important to give your hair a layer of protection under the sun. Heat dries out your hair and can cause breakage, which is why we recommend the Solutions by Great Clips Moisturizing Shampoo and Nourishing Leave-In Conditioner. These products also work for fighting summer frizz!

4. Treat your hair after swimming

After a refreshing swim, make another splash by using a product that combats the effects of chlorine. We recommend using the Solutions by Great Clips Clarifying Shampoo for your next pool day! And don’t forget to check out our blog for more swim hair care tips.

5. Avoid heat styling

With sizzling summer days ahead, try to beat the heat by avoiding your heat styling tools, which can cause excess damage to your hair. There are plenty of alternatives for controlling your summer hairstyle, including SexyHair’s Controlling Creme – perfect for taming frizz! If you do need to whip out your iron, it’s important to use a thermal protection spray like Paul Mitchell’s Hot Off The Press.

This summer, remember to treat your hair while you also treat yourself! Bring the heat with happy, healthy hair and check out our lookbook for some summer hairstyle inspiration!
