Summer is well on its way, and the sun and heat can do some major damage to your hair. While getting some rays and Vitamin D are enjoyable, let’s check out some ways to keep your hair healthy and vibrant while frolicking on the beach!

• Cold Wash Out
After you’re done conditioning in the shower, use cold water to wash out your hair. This helps to seal the cuticle, making it harder for moisture to enter the hair follicle, which can cause frizz and damage.

• Don’t Over Brush Wet Hair
When your hair is wet, it’s at its most vulnerable. Wait until your hair is mostly dry to brush through, starting at the tips and working your way to the base. Preferably, uses a comb or a natural bristle brush.

• Stress, Smoke and Starches
Eating bad foods, stressing out and smoking all cause your hair to become duller. A healthy diet, no smoking policy and meditation can all help your hair to be the shiny version of what you want.

• Biotin
Biotin is a vitamin supplement that can be purchased over the counter at any drug, convenience or grocery store. It is meant to help hair, skin and nails grow faster and healthier. What a dynamic trio!

• Get Trim
Getting your hair trimmed every six to eight weeks will help your hair grow faster and prevent split ends.

• Avoid the Heat
When blow drying your hair, try not to use the hottest setting. This is especially true when you are pairing it with a flat iron or curling iron as all this heat can be damaging.

• Egg and Avocado
Combining a mix of 2 egg yolks and half an avocado, mix well, lather into your hair and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Your hair will be shinier and lighter so you’ll be ready for a fun summer night out.

• Argan Oil
Argan Oil is a light oil rich in Vitamin E and fatty acids to deeply hydrate dry hair. It can also be applied to skin and nails as well, which is a plus.

So there you have it. All the keys to keeping your hair as you like while enjoying the summertime sun. If you don’t feel like doing all that, invest in a hat!
