Saving Summer-Stressed Strands Before the End of Summer

Between the sun, salt, and chlorine that we expose our hair to every day in the summer, our hair definitely takes a beating. With summer quickly coming to a close, it is hard to ignore the damage that we inflicted onto your tresses while we basked in the sun on those long and lazy days at the beach. Thankfully there are simple ways to prevent and treat damaged hair so that you can keep your strands in tip-top shape for the Fall.


Although there aren’t too many weekends of summer left to head to the beach, if you are headed outside make sure you reach for a hair product that contain SPF. By coating your hair with sunscreen-infused products, you can be confident that your hair will be fortified and protected while out in the sun. Some products even help to keep your hair tangle-free, hydrated, and keep frizz at bay so you don’t have to stress about what your locks look like while you enjoy the weather. Try Ouidad Sun Shield Sun & Sport Leave-in Conditioner for a quick and easy way to prevent sun damage or TRESemmé Climate Control Mousse, which gives your hair body while it protects against humidity, static, and even UV rays. Once you slather on some SPF, slick your hair  back into a chic bun or a casual braid and then don a whimsical floppy hair or a stylish summer fedora.  When it’s time to leave the beach, undo your braid or bun to reveal sexy, surfer-girl waves that are perfect for a night out.


After a day of laying by the pool or soaking up the sun at the beach, your hair will be in serious need of some TLC. Cleanse, condition, and repair your strands easily by choosing the right products:

Start with a gentle cleansing shampoo like Oliver Ifergan Crest Shampoo. Sans sulfates and other harmful chemicals, this shampoo gently washes away residue and grim while working to restore hair’s manageability and health. Try to avoid shampooing every day in the summer to help prevent further drying, but always make sure to rinse you hair well and always condition.

When it comes to conditioner, the summer time forces us to choose one that is super-hydrating to restore moisture and help treat damaged ends. A good choice for the summer is Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Fortifying Conditioner. This bio-degradable formula hydrates and strengthens dry, damaged hair without leaving any heavy residue, plus it’s great for the environment and has a delicious light scent that is perfect for a pick-me-up after a long day in the sun.

Make your hair even healthier by slathering on a hair masque for a few minutes every few days. Choose one like Alterna Summer Hair RX After-Sun Hair Quench Hydrating Gel Masque and be transported to a tropical getaway with each and every use. Simply smooth the gel onto freshly-washed hair while in the shower to instantly hydrate and repair sun-damaged hair. The gel formula is super lightweight and rinses cleanly leaving you with soft, touchable hair that smells so deliciously sweet and coconut-y it will be as if you never left the beach.

Summer is a time to let your natural hair texture shine through. Leave your hot tools in the cabinets and rock your natural hair texture. Summer is all about being carefree and cool, so leave your hair alone and be proud of the waves, curls, or pin-straight hair that you have! After you cleanse and condition, spray on a leave-in treatment and then let your hair do it’s thing. Try Infusium 23 Renew and Repair Leave-in Treatment to tame frizz, fight damage, and provide light-weight hold to your style. A leave-in conditioner is a must in the summer since it helps to seal in moisture and strengthens damaged hair.

Keeping your hair color from fading can be quite the challenge, especially in the summer. Instead of booking an appointment at the salon every few weeks, try out Oscar Blandi At Home Salon Glaze. When you use this color-preserving glaze once a week, the life of your color will be extended plus your hair will look and feel healthier, silkier, and more conditioned.

Well there you have it, a quick and easy routine to help get you through the last few weeks of summer.  Keep your hair happy and healthy now and it will repay you by looking amazing once the season starts to change.
