Don’t want to worry about your hair this summer? Let your hair down and forget the rules. The last thing you want to worry about is your hair when the beach is in sight. Despite the beauty mantra to go short or chop it all off for summer…Keep the length and save the big chop for the fall season when upkeep will be more low maintenance. Whether you tie it up, push it back, or let those mermaid waves flow, long locks are honestly easier to work with during summertime. You won’t have to grab that bottle of beach spray because you’ll already have it! Embrace the something extra the weather is enhancing your nature texture with and go easy on your hair… It’s a good time to give your mane a break. Don’t overstyle it—aim for a laid back look instead of perfection. Plus, your ends will naturally lighten up with those extra summer days worked in, which can extend time between appointments with your colorist.
Hair oil—you know when you’ve applied too much. And that’s exactly what you should do before the pool/beach or simply sunbathing: Keep it oily! AKA moisturized. Applying oil to hair generously adds extra protection from the sun and the ultra drying salt from the ocean, or chlorine from the pool. Another method o prevent hair that’s dryer than hay: Skip thoroughly rinsing out conditioner this summer. Work your favorite conditioner through post shampoo, let sit for a moment then rinse halfway to transform your conditioner into a nourishing leave-in treatment for the day. The extra product left in the hair is a great way to build-in extra protection and hydration before the pool or ocean, which works to prevent harsh water from fully penetrating and won’t dry you out as much.
