Stylist to the stars Asgar Saboo tells all...
It's not just your skin and scalp that's at risk from sunburn. Did you know your hair can get sunburned, too? Protect your locks by wearing a scarf, hat or cap when you're out for a long periods of time. Just make sure it's not so tight that it restricts the circulation to your scalp!
Staying hydrated is especially important in the summertime and this counts for your hair, too! Try to drink at least eight to ten glasses of fluid a day and even more if you’re planning to get active. The extra hydration will add much-needed moisture to your locks.
Summer is a great opportunity to use a leave-in conditioner. It adds moisture to your hair, just like lotion does for dry skin. It can also dramatically reduce frizz and it really helps to define curly hair!
Because of the summer heat, anything that could further damage your hair is a huge no-no, including blow dryers! Let your hair air-dry and flaunt those natural waves. You should also aim to cut down on the flat iron or curling iron as much as possible.
Since your hair is already vulnerable from the elements of the heat, take special care of it and use hair accessories that won’t damage your hair further. Some good accessories are ponytail holders without metal closures, barrettes with smooth edges and fabric headbands that move with your hair.
Avoid having any hair treatment and/or using chemical products during the hot season as the hair often gets damaged and dries up in the heat. And yes, that means hair colouring, too! Dyeing your hair during summer can lead to seriously dry, brittle locks.
Your hair will be naturally dryer during the summer months, and this can cause split ends and brittle tips. Trim your hair often to breathe life back into your locks.
