How to Take Care of Summer Hair – Top Tips from the Hairdressing Team at Hair by Elements Salon in Bishop’s Stortford
Summer is finally upon us, bringing with it exciting activities such as holidays, BBQs and fun evenings out. With all this going on you may forget that your hair needs extra care during this season!
As much as some of us love bathing in the sun, going for a dip in the pool or a swim in the sea, these are just a few of the environmental factors that can cause your hair to become dry and prone to splitting and breaking. Don’t worry, you can still enjoy these activities, just make sure to invest in the best summer hair products for healthy hair!
Protect Your Hair from Pool Chlorine
Chlorine is a chemical in the pool that can dry out your hair which leads to there being a high likelihood of it breaking. Also, chlorine can react with you hair colour and turn it a different shade!
If you are concerned, try using a chlorine-removing shampoo. Then, once you are back and away from the pool, book into our Bishop’s Stortford hair salon where we can provide you with a professional conditioning treatment to restore the moisture back to your hair.
Prevent Hair Colour Fade
It’s important to remember that coloured hair can fade in the sun so use a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner to prevent hair colour fade. Leave-in conditioners can give you gorgeously soft hair and act as a barrier to the sun’s harmful rays, but only do this once a month to avoid over-loading your locks. For the ultimate in hair protection, wear a hat to be super safe and stylish!
Avoid Frizzy Hair in Summer
Frizzy hair can be an infuriating summer hair problem with the heat and humidity turning your fabulous hairstyle into an untameable frizzy mess in moments!
We can highly recommend the professional hair smoothing treatments at our Bishop’s Stortford salon. The Kerasilk Control Keratin Treatment and Kerasilk Control De-Frizz Service are fabulous solutions for the long-lasting transformation of frizzy hair.
Protect Your Hair from Heat
The summer sun can lead to dry hair that is prone to breakage. Battle this with a good heat protection spray and hair products that contain UV protection. Also try to limit the use of heated stylers like curling wands, straighteners and hair dryers. You could also wear a hat or tie your hair up to help protect your hair from the sun.
