Intentional Hair Care: Summer Hair care Tips

A summer glow up for your hair!

Have you ever wondered why your hair feels dry, dull, or brittle during the summer? Let's explore how summer elements can be affecting your hair unexpectedly and recommend essential products for maintaining happy, healthy hair throughout the warmer months. The key to your summer hair care routine is a UV protector and a Detox product. Just like our skin and eyes, our hair needs sun protection. Additionally, a detox is crucial even if you are using all salon-quality products, as various factors like environment, medications or diet can lead to buildup on your hair.

Summertime factors that can cause hair damage or build up:

  • Travel - Changes in your routine and products can affect your hair's health.
  • Sun - Excessive sun exposure can cause hair color to fade as well as lead to dry and brittle ends.
  • Air quality - Spending more time outdoors means greater exposure to air pollutants and debris in the wind.
  • Outdoor activities- excess sweating, infrequent shampooing, camping, and campfire smoke can all impact the condition of your hair.
  • Swimming- Frequent dips in the lake, pool, hot tub, or ocean can leave your hair feeling dry and dull.
  • Hard water - Hard water contains minerals and metals and can lead to hair build up that prevents moisture penetration into the hair strands. Think of the build up that occurs on your shower head or in your kettle and how this could also be affecting your hair.
