Top 10 Tips For Summer Hair Care

Top 10 Tips For Summer Hair Care by barbies beauty bits

I love Summertime, weather! However, it doesn't always love us back, especially when it comes to our hair and skin. Every year, people suffer the results of the sizzling summer sun. From sunburns to damaged hair, the sun wreaks havoc upon us in a many ways.

Living at the beach, riding my bike, and attending some outdoor events, puts me right in the midst of Mr. Sun and Ms. Sunny Summertime. And with that so are the appearance problems to my newly blond hair.

Tips on treating summer damaged hair by barbies beauty bits

For instance, the “green” colored hair after taking a dip in the pool, or the brassy dried out locks from the ocean water. And the plain old dull, brittle, split ends that make us look less than our best when it's time for a fun night out with the girls.

So, what is a girl to do? Like my expression, plan your tan, you need to spare the hair before the sun leaves you with none! So, if you want to find out how you can protect your hair from the blazing sun rays continue reading.

Before I go into some of these tips, I think it is important to mention that it doesn't matter if your hair does not appear to be damaged. As these tips, we're about to share, are a must for all those who venture in the sweltering summer sun!

Tip 1: Washing Your Hair
Cut down on the number of times you wash your hair during the Summer months. Washing your hair daily removes the natural oils emitted by your scalp and dries out your hair.  And when it comes to drying the hair, air drying is best, as blow drying your hair will add extra heat damage, especially if it is color treated.

Tip 2: Moisturizing Shampoo
Switch over to a moisturizing shampoo during the summer months. Look at the ingredients too, as you want to stay away from products that have a lot of alcohol in them as alcohol can dry your hair out even more!

Tip 3: Showers
When showering, you want to take a cool shower. Yeah, I know this is difficult, but hot steamy showers are not good for the hair or your skin!  As they can dry out your hair and scalp, something you don't want to do during the scorching summer months.

Vanity Planets Groove Massaging Brush
For the next few tips, I have partnered up with Vanity planet using their Groove | Scalp Massaging Shampoo Brush. This nifty scalp massaging shampoo brush is a battery-powered, vibrating brush that has blunt, rubber bristles that gently loosens dead skin cells and oil buildup while giving the scalp a soothing mini-massage.

Not only does this brush make cleansing your scalp a breeze, but it also helps promote blood flow to the scalp, that can increase scalp health and hair growth which is needed in the summer months.

Additionally, this brush helps to replenish and to rejuvenate that dry, damaged hair while aiding in the prevention of excessive brittleness and split-ends.

Tip 4: Massaging The Scalp
To help protect your hair from the damaging effects of the sun, I like to massage my head with the Groove Massaging brush, not only does it feel great but it also contributes to improving the resilience over time.

Tip 5: Re-hydrating Your Hair
You can achieve this with products that increase moisture and shine. You can also do this naturally by using the Groove Massaging brush as this brush helps to stimulate your natural oils, to replenish, rejuvenate and conquer that battle of the summer dries.

Tip 6: Removing Excess Deadskin Cells
Lift away dead skin cells and oil buildup on the scalp. Why is this important? Well, the same harmful UV rays that damage your skin on the body can also damage your hair! So, by using my Vanity Planets, Groove massage brush, I can strengthen the roots of my hair, while nourishing the hair shaft, that will assist in promoting new growth and strengthens the hair.

Tip 7: Moisturizing Your Hair
You want to look for products that will increase moisture, shine, or elasticity. A product that I have found that helps my hair in the summer is the Remi Moisturizing and Restorative Treatment from Vanity Planet.  This hair treatment employs natural extracts like argon oil, castor oil, and coconut oil to revive the hair, repair signs of damage and hydrate parched summer tresses.

Tip 8: Covering Your Hair
When at the beach, I always wear a hat to protect my hair from the hot UV rays of the sun that can damage my hair.  Additionally, the salt water can turn my blond hair brassy, and that is the last thing I need after spending all that money to lighten my hair.

How To Protect Your Hair From Chlorine by barbies beauty bits

Tip 9: Protect Your Hair From Chlorine
I stay away from getting my hair wet as the chlorine can mess up your hair, even turn it green, yuko. But unfortunately, you can’t always control that with splashing water from others. So, to reduce the amount of 'green tint' that can occur in my hair, I apply some leave in conditioner.  Doing this creates a barrier of protection to the hair, preventing it from absorbing the chlorine water.

DIY tip… I got this from a friend of mine who is a die-hard sunbather. If you notice that your hair is showing signs of a greenish tint, you can try applying tomato juice or ketchup to your hair and wrap it with some saran wrap or a plastic shower cap and leave it for 15-30 minutes, then rinse.

Why does this work? Because tomatoes are highly acidic and can cut through the green oxidization to help to eliminate the green in your hair.

Tip 10: Feed Your Hair
What we eat is also essential to healthy hair growth. Since our hair is made up of certain types of protein and skin cells, implementing a healthy diet would make sense for a positive effect on our hair.

Eating a diet of low-fat proteins, fruits, and vegetables, can help to stimulate the growth of healthy hair from our follicles.

You also need to make sure you are drinking plenty of water! This is one thing I am not good at, but considering our hair is an extension of our skin, hydrating from the inside out only makes sense! Drinking plenty of water will help hydrate and give your hair the internal moisture it needs to look and feel healthy.

So, there you have it beauties, our top 10 Tips For Summer Hair Care!
