7 Ways to Protect Your Hair From the Summer Sun, Boston, Massachusetts

Men and women alike are subject to hair damage during the summer months. The sun’s rays and intense heat dry out hair, and harsh pool chemicals like chlorine can leave your strands looking lifeless. Luckily, taking preventative steps and seeking help from a hair salon will keep your hair healthy throughout the season. 

How to Keep Your Hair Healthy All Summer Long

1. Get Regular Cuts

Dry, damaged hair is brittle, and leaving it untouched leads to breakage and split ends. Head to a hair salon for a trim at least once a month to keep your strands in tip-top shape.

2. Cut Down on Shampoo

Sulfates, a common ingredient in commercial shampoos, strip hair of natural oils and lead to dryness and irritation. Avoid shampooing daily or choose sulfate-free hair care products. You can also use dry shampoo as an alternative.

3. Wear a Hat

When you’re outdoors for an hour or more, shield your head with a hat. The coverage will protect some of your hair from the elements, and the delicate skin on your scalp won’t get sunburnt.

4. Use Conditioner

5. Avoid Styling With Heat

Using hot tools like blow dryers, curling irons, and straighteners will zap the moisture from hair. If you need to use these products in the summer, apply a heat-protectant spray before each use.

6. Swim Sparingly

Swimming is a fun way to stay active and cool off in the summer, but like sulfates, chlorine can strip hair of natural oils and result in rough, dry strands. If you often swim, wear a swim cap or apply a barrier oil hopping in the pool.

7. Ditch the Brush

Brushes work well to detangle matted hair, but their narrow bristles can lead to breakage in unhealthy strands. When your hair is feeling dry or damaged, opt for a wide-toothed comb that gently works through knots.
