It is all known that many hair problems are frequently seen especially in summer, since hot, humid weather in summer can result in all kinds of hair problems, like severely dry hair, greasy hair, split-up, dandruff, frizz, color-fading, etc. Therefore, it is not enough to defeat hair damage if you only prep your hair by stocking up a bottle of texturizing sea salt hairspray.
Because I am the one who once suffered from terrible hair, I used to collect useful hair tips provided from celebrity hairstylist. When it comes to hair problems in summer, tricks offered by celeb hairstylist Mark Hill work well in restoring beautiful and healthy hair for me. Here are the 4 tips.
- Hydrating shampoos and conditioners are suggested
Heat and UV rays in summer tend to dehydrate your hair. According to Hill, using hydrating shampoos and conditioners containing essential oils and plant extract can help restore lost moisture. Besides, to make you hair look and feel good, you can use argan oil to be assistance.
“A conditioning treatment is also a key product to have in your cupboard during summer. It is like treating your hair to a facial! Apply to towel-dried hair and leave it to do it’s magic,” said Hill.
Solution: Applying a deep conditioning to your hair every one or two week. You can treat yourself a deep hair conditioning while sunbathing. The result will be fantastic because the heat makes a better penetration for the conditioner, and the conditioner can protect your hair in the sun.
2. Use anti-sulfate shampoos to fight against an oily scalp
According to Hill, anti-sulfate shampoos can help minimize sulfates that are apt to strip your hair of essential moisture and add excessive oils. Additionally, “As your scalp becomes hot, it perspires. The heat also works to produce more oil. The only way to deal with this is by shampooing,” he said.
Every time after you wash your hair, “Just remember to use a conditioner for the mid-lengths and ends to keep your hair in great condition,” he added.
3. Apply anti-frizz sprays and serums appropriately
For wavy hair, applying a vitamin E-rich serum can help reduce frizz and protect from harmful UV rays. The result will be much better if applied on damp hair. For straighter hair, a silk protein and bamboo fern extract creme like Hill’s Straight-a-holic Straight Talking Straightening Cream can help maintain moisture and add shine.
Finish with a little anti-humidity hairspray when styling your hair, according to Hill. Simply spritz some into the air and walk under the mist. By this, you can protect your hair from frizz and flyaways in hot, humid weather.
- Try to stay away from the sun when going out.
To protect your hair from the sun, the quickest way is to wear a wide-brimmed hat or scarf. Or you can apply products with UV protection consisting of vitamin E and sunflower oil before going out in daytime. Elements like vitamin E and sunflower oil help prevent hair color fading.
For a better effect, you can apply UV-based hairsprays or leave-in conditioners to your damp hair.
