Are we the only ones who are so ready for weekend beach days, cocktails on rooftops and outdoor brunches? What we’re not looking forward to, however, is dry hair, frizz and sweaty locks.
What’s a girl to do when she wants the best hair all summer season long? We could all use a few summer hair protection tips and tricks to get us through the season. Read on for our top summer hair protection tips:
Top 4 Summer Hair Protection Tips
1. Protect hair with a bandana.
This is one of our summer go-to accessories as it adds a fun element to any outfit. Besides that, a bandana is a great way to protect your hair from the sun, the same way a hat would. You can also use it as a headband on super-hot days to help soak up all the sweat you’ll produce. If you’re using a cotton bandana, make sure to prep hair with a hair serum like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum or an oil to create a barrier on your hair. This will help avoid any snagging from the material of your scarf. Alternatively, you can play it safe by using a silk bandana instead.
2. Sleep on a silk pillowcase.
For those of us that tie our hair to maintain hairstyles overnight, having something on your head while you sleep during the warmer season can be a bit of a nuisance. Say goodbye to sweaty hair while you catch some zzz’s by sleeping on a silk pillowcase instead.
3. Use a protective wash and care system.
One of our top summer hair protection tips is to use a shampoo and conditioner that will help keep your strands from frying in the sun. Wash your hair with Bed Head by TIGI Totally Beachin’ Shampoo and Conditioner. This system is designed to clean your hair without stripping it and uses Aloe Vera to calm and soothe your strands.
4. Add products with UV protection into your routine.
Whether you have color-treated hair or naturally dry hair, or even normal hair, everyone can use some UV protection. The sun can be very drying on your hair so protection is key. Apply Bed Head by TIGI Beach Bound Protection Spray which is ideal for colored hair but is great on all hair types, and contains UV Complex which helps protect your strands from harmful sun rays. You can even use this product as a heat protectant too.
