Fun in the Sun: How to Keep Your Hair Healthy All Summer Long

Sun, salt, and chlorine can wreak havoc on your hair. Here are some tips for keeping your hair looking its best during the hot summer months:

Just Add Water
To help prevent your scalp and hair from drying out, make sure it gets plenty of moisture. A leave-in conditioner can help. Add a weekly deep conditioning masque to your routine and you’ll thank us. Treatment masques also can help prevent damage by providing a protective barrier between you and the sun. DESIGNLINE Olive Oil Hair Masque is one we suggest.

Ban the Rays
Another way to keep your hair in tip top shape is sun screen. Stock up on moisturizing products that offer UV protection, such as DESIGNLINE Ultimate Radiance Leave-In Conditioning Styler.

And that sun we love so much can fade color before you know it. So if you color your hair, use products designed for color treated hair to keep your color vibrant, longer.

Fight Frizz
Summer is also the time when the frizzies make an appearance, especially in more humid climates. Send them packing with a smoothing oil. Give Biolage ExquisiteOil Protective Treatment a try.

Go Natural
This advice goes for any season, but try to keep heat styling to a minimum. Opt for braids, twists and up-dos to protect your hair during those hot, summer days. And don’t forget to get regular trims to keep split ends at bay.

Really need to use heat styling tools? Remember to use a thermal protectant, like Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair Triple Rescue, to protect your strands.
