Sea, Sand, and Sun are some of my absolute favourite things about summer. Who’s with me? It’s the only time throughout the year you can let your hair down without worrying about what it looks like half way through the day.
Just like lathering on sunscreen, hair protection is just as important. I certainly spend a lot of money on my hair throughout the year… so why not take a few extra steps to protect it?
Here are 5 key tips to avoid your parched and damaged locks this season:
♥ 1. Wear a Hat
Protecting your hair has never been more stylish. From straw hats to ball caps, you can make a fashion statement while still shielding your hair and scalp from UV rays.
♥ 2. Use heat/sun protecting spray
Did you know that there are products for your hair to protect it from the suns harmful rays? I just learned about this and couldn’t believe the products that are out there! Therefore, protecting your locks is just as important as wearing sunscreen on your body.
♥ 3. Apply a hair mask weekly
This one of my favs! Try and set aside an hour to yourself one night a week, apply a nourishing hair mask and have a pamper-me night in. Hair masks can be easy to leave out from your hair-care regime as they are a bit time-consuming. Trust me, your hair will thank you later!
♥ 4. Avoid curling irons and straigteners
I know, this is easier said than done. We all want to do our hair on a night-out during the summer. There are so many ways to style your natural hair and great products [I love] to help achieve that beachy look and tame it down. If you need to use your blow dryer, try to go for the low-heat/cool option. Every little bit helps, right?
♥ 5. Throw it up in a messy bun/pony
If all else fails [and it’s extremely hot out] I tend to put my hair up in a messy bun or pony tail. It’s the easiest way to deal with your hair! Especially if you are heading to the beach to swim in the ocean and play in the sand. Honestly, if I’m not shooting or sleeping, my hair is up in a bun 90% of the time!
Have the best week babes! It’s finally starting to get hot in Vancouver and I couldn’t be more excited!
