5 Tips to Protect Your Hair from the Summer Sun
Welcome, summer! After a long winter, we're ready to lay out our beach towels, bring out our swimsuits and soak up the summer sun. Getting some sun is a fantastic way to relax but can wreak havoc on your hair. This doesn't mean you need to avoid it, just that your locks may need a little extra love and attention. Here are some ways you can help protect your hair while soaking up the sunshine.
Shade your hair
Hats are in style right now, so why not accessorize and protect your hair? No matter the style you choose, covering up will make sure that not only your hair is safe, but can also protect your face and ears.
Don't skimp on the conditioner
Leave-in conditioner will be your best friend in the summer and a step you don't want to skip. It allows you to give your hair the extra moisture it craves without washing it. We recommend Solutions by Great Clips® Nourishing Leave-In Conditioner or Healthy Sexy Hair Tri-Wheat Leave-In Conditioner.
Give it a blast of cold
Just like the heat from the sun and the warm summer air, hot water dries out your hair and scalp. You can combat this by adding one simple step to your shower routine: rinse your hair with cold water. This will close your strands to help lock in moisture faster.
Protect your locks
If you will be heat-styling your hair, make sure that it's nourished and protected by spritzing it with thermal protectant. Try a heat protectant like Paul Mitchell Hot Off The Press or Solutions by Great Clips® Thermal Protection Spray for a weightless barrier that helps fight the frizz.
