Summer Hair Care Tips

Growing up in Florida, I've spent a lot of time at the beach and swimming in pools. It will reek havoc on your hair leaving it brittle and breaking.

Here are a few tips to make sure this doesn't happen to you.

Make sure you are using a layer of protection for your hair like a leave in conditioner. They even have products now that have a SPF and are specifically made forprotecting your hair from the sun.

Wash your hair less often. Sure rinse the pool chemicals and sea water out of your hair but skip the shampoo.
Shampooing less allows your hair to soak up some of its natural oils and your hair is less prone to getting dried out. When showering, I'd still use conditioner.

I know this may be a hard one for some but try to go with out getting your hair done. The chemicals strip your hair. Also avoid products with any alcohol in them. It's always nice to give your hair a beak for awhile.

If you MUST use your straightener and hair dryer, be sure to use a leave in conditioner designed for the heat of the dryer.

Remember to hydrate - From the inside - out! Drink plenty of water and be sure to moisturize your hair. Use hot oil treatments and contain frizz by wearing your hair in braids or buns.

Remember to get your hair trimmed every 4-6 weeks to get the frizzy and split ends away.

These are great tips. I wish there was some miracle for blonde hair turning green in chlorine. I used to have that problem when I was younger and now my kids have it.
