Guest Post: Hair care routine for hot summer days

30 June 2019

We all know to make sure that we are taking care of our skin in the summer, but did you know the summer months can be just as hard on your hair? In the same way you would moisturize and wear sunscreen, you should also be taking care of your hair. Read on to discover top tips from how to use tea tree oil for hair care to how to wash and dry your hair in the summer.
The best hair care routine this summer

There are a few things that you should be doing to ensure that you keep your hair in the best condition during the summer months. Here is the best routine to care for your hair:

·       Drink more water every day. Your hair and skin get dehydrated, just like you do! Ensure you drink plenty of water to keep your whole body including your hair fully hydrated.

·       Add a daily de-frizz your hair with coconut oil. The summer months can cause you hair to dry out and become frizzy. Combat this by rubbing coconut oil into the ends of your hair.
·       Only wash your hair every 2-3 days. Over-washing can cause your scalp to over produce its natural oils causing your hair to look greasier.
·       Use oils like tea tree oil for hair conditioning in between washes.
·       Avoid heat styling on the days you wash your hair. Try to allow your hair to dry naturally and stick to quick and easy styles that do not require too much heat, as the summer heat needs n help from heat styling to dry out your hair!

Other summer hair care tips you should know

Once you have your perfect routine in place there are other ways that you can protect your hair in the summer months. These include:

·       Add sun cream to your hair. UV can cause faded, sun damaged hair. When you’ve finished applying sunscreen to your skin, run your hands through your hair to add an extra layer of protection.

·       Wet your hair before swimming. Wetting your hair before jumping into the pool to cool off will help to protect your hair from the damage chlorine can cause.
·       Try using tea tree oil for hair care. There are so many benefits to using tea tree oil as part of your hair care routine, including:
·       Moisturising your scalp to stop an excess oil build-up.
·       Soothing dry, itchy skin.
·       Treating dandruff and other conditions.
·       Select quick, easy, loose curls and braids when styling your hair. Your hair is more prone to tearing and pulling in the summer heat, so opt for loose styles to prevent lasting damage to your hair.
·       Why not pick out a pretty hat or scarf? One of the easiest ways you can protect not only your hair but also your scalp is to cover it. There are plenty of choices when it comes to hats and scarves, so they make a great accessory to most any outfit!
With these super easy steps including using tea tree oil for hair care and other top tips for keeping a good beauty routine; you can ensure you have luscious locks all summer long.
