How To Care For Your Hair Over The Summer Months

14th December 2020 | Written by Studio On Grantham

 

Think about all that sun, sea, pool chlorine and sand, wreaking havoc on our hair! Despite our best efforts, all the best Summer activities over the warmer months can cause damage to your hair.

Below are some surprisingly simple tips for keeping your hair in optimal condition, all Summer long!

START WITH A TRIM

Regular trimming will keep your ends healthy and keep those nasty split ends at bay, while helping your hair grow.

COVER UP

Sometimes it’s as simple as wearing a hat to protect your hair (and face) from the sun’s harmful rays.

USE A DETOXIFYING SHAMPOO

If you find yourself swimming in pools more than usual as it heats up, we recommend to use a detox shampoo (like Kevin Murphy Maxi wash) after every swim to prevent mineral build-up and in some cases, that unsightly green tinge that goes with it!

USE A CONDITIONING MASQUE

Nourishment is key when it comes to keeping your hair in tip top condition. Using a weekly hair masque (we recommend Kevin Murphy Young Again) will keep your locks strong and shiny. 

DITCH THE HEAT TOOLS

There’s only so much heat your hair can handle, and heat of any kind will always cause some level of damage. If you’re spending a little extra time in the sun, consider laying off the heat styling tools and embrace a natural beachy texture. You can create this effortless beach look by using Kevin Murphy Hair Resort Spray or Killer Waves.

DON’T FORGET THE LEAVE IN TREATMENT

Last but not least, ensure you’re using a leave in treatment every time you wash your hair. It is a simple and quick way of adding that extra nourishment to the hair. It will also protect from the heat of everything from the sun to your straightening iron! Some of our very favourites include Kevin Murphy leave in repair, untangled and heat defence.
