Summer Hair Care Tips

Updated: Oct 19, 2020

Summer is fast approaching, and many of us are planning for a summer vacation to the beaches this June holiday. Bali, Phuket, Langkawi, whichever your pick. Even for those that are not travelling this summer, we are already experiencing summer in Singapore all year round, and we’re expecting an even warmer weather in the upcoming months. Whether you are planning for a trip overseas to the beach or a dip in the pool in our homeland, we’ve got you covered.

Summer does not have to be the season of bad hair days. With some extra care, your hair can also look as good any day. Below are some tips on how to tame your tresses this summer.

1. Trim your hair

Trim your hair to remove the split ends. As the hair continues to grow, the split end continues to split up the hair shaft, so you got to snip them off quickly before it splits up through the entire strand.

2. Protect from the sun

Apply sunscreen on your hair – Just as we put on sunscreen to protect our face and body from the UV rays, we should also put on sunscreen on our hair to protect it from the harmful UVA and UVB rays. Look out for sprays, gels or leave-in conditioner with SPF properties. Not only can the UV rays damage your hair, it can also cause oxidization, making your freshly coloured hair to fade even faster.

Cover up – Covering up with a cap, scarf, bandana, hat or any accessories of such does the deed as well. It not only helps shield your tresses from the sun, preventing it from getting fried, it can also help retain moisture in your scalp and further protecting your scalp and ear from direct sunlight.

3. Reduce Chlorine/Saltwater Damage
