Natural hair is very beautiful, no matter your curl type. It is very important to take care of your hair all year round, especially in the summer. The summer means the sun will be out constantly. It is a fact that the sun will damage your hair if it in not properly taken care of. Below I will list tips and hair styles that will keep your hair protected and healthy in the summer.
Tip 1. Keep Your Hair Moisturized
I can not stress this tip enough. Moisturizing your hair is a priority you should do for your hair all year round. Not moisturizing your hair leads to dry and brittle hair. A result of dry and brittle hair will cause split ends. Also, moisturizing your hair leads to hair growth.
Tip 2. Cut Your Dead Ends
When you have dead ends, your ends will continue to grow pretty much dead. I do not care if you have ever heard, ” do not cut your hair.” Do not listen to that awful advice. When you cut your hair, you hair will grow out healthy all over again.
Tip 3. Wash Your Hair After the Pool
The pool is not completely all water, the pool also consists of chlorine.Chlorine can also lead to dry and brittle hair. A way you can stop this from happening is by washing your hair right after the pool. Second, you can wear conditioner in your hair while in the pool. Third, wear a pool cap.
Tip 4. Avoid Heat
Heat is especially a big no no in the summer. Constant heat to your hair also leads to dead ends. Constant heat use also leads to damaged hair. If your hair is curly, your curl pattern will change in a mostly bad way.
