A little more than just summer hair care

Happy summer, stay healthy and pleased

Every season has its own beauty and of course its own little things to make us moaning. Summer is not an exception either. Generally the hottest season means more freedom to the kids and more possibilities to go out to the nature for all of us. For me it means long days and long talks with the folks under the sky. It means sweet strawberries and cool watermelons. It means the seaside and the sunshine. All sounds good, right? It’s good enough to make us easily forget about other summer things. Things that are for certain kinds of protections. To protect our skin and our hair, as well. Sun protection for hair belongs to summer hair care.

Family on the beach, in the sunset.

Most people are aware of the importance of skin protection. Many people have accepted that sunburn has several risks and it’s really better to apply that cream.. even if one don’t really like it. At the same time, there are not so many people to take care about the sun protection of their hair. Of course, there is a big difference between these two. Running the risk of a serious skin disease is not equal to losing the beauty of your hair, I see. Nevertheless, it’s better to protect it than working for months on getting it back.

And what are the most important steps?

  • I know you’ve heard or read it too many times already, but it cannot be missed from such a list. Drink enough water. Dehydration can cause not only headache, dizziness or low blood pressure. It can halt hair growth. A lot of people prefer mineral water and they can buy it almost anywhere on their way. Others choose tap water and take their bottle with them. Do you like environment-friendly solutions? You can choose water in 100% recyclable carton.
  • Sleep enough: Long, summer days can make you feel like having more time. Just hanging out with friends a little more and you’ll realise that it’s too late again. Wise people say to go to bed early and get up early. But I’m not that wise person so I say to find what is best for you. Create a sleeping habit that fits your work and lifestyle best. Night owls go to bed early in vain, but you have to listen to your body. If you feel to be tired all the time, it’s better to make a change and ask a doctor’s advice to help about it. Poor sleep can have a bad effect on your overall health and it can cause hair problems as well.
  • Enjoy summer fruits and vegetables (strawberry, watermelon, apple, cherry, cranberry, cucumber, carrots…) It’s strange to give an advice about eating enough (especially when almost everybody would like to lose some weight for the perfect summer body) but my experience is drinking more and eating less in summer. The weather can make you feel thirsty then drinking too much can make you feel full. Your body still needs nutrients and vitamins so keeping a balanced diet is important also in summer. Summer fruits can provide necessary vitamins also for your hair.
  • Protect your skin and hair: There are some natural oils that have UV protection properties. Using them for hair can be a natural and good solution, but I would not recommend to use them on the skin instead of a sunscreen. High factor sun protective products are still the best option to prevent sunburn and some skin problems. If you prefer, you can choose such a product also for hair. The product range contains hair oils, sprays, shampoos. Using such products should be a part of summer hair care.
  • Choose summer beddings: In summer most people prefer light and airy beddings with breathable fabrics, like linen or cotton. It’s healthier and more likely to have a quality sleep if you can keep your body cool thanks to summer beddings. Good for your health and good for your hair.
  • If you can afford and you don’t go far, leave your car at home as many times as you can. Of course not when it’s 35-40 degrees outside, but in the U.K. it doesn’t happen very often. Walking is a good, but not really exhausting way of exercising. Being active is good for your body and for your hair. When you go somewhere on foot you have the chance to see the beauty of summer, the beauty of nature. From another point of view, you can be alone with your thoughts. Or you can have the time for your favourite music or listen to an audio book you like.
  • I’m a little afraid of writing down the last step, but I go on. Put aside some housework just for a while. Don’t stress about it. Spend time with your family and friends instead. Of course I don’t say to be lazy and dirty. But if you don’t clean the windows on Saturday, but spend it with your family, making a trip or a barbecue, the world will not end. You can have wonderful summer memories and recall them with satisfaction later. You just have to allow it for yourself. Or you can remember how much you worked at home also in this season. Any connection to summer hair care? Less stress, less stress-related hair loss, not only in summer.
Beauty comes from inside and nothing can make you feel better than spending valuable time with your loved ones.

Summer can be fun. Or it can just go by like any other seasons. No one but you can fill it with memories. And no one but you can protect your health and beauty.

Summer hair care

Protect your hair from summer heat

The last few days were unusually hot here, in the UK so it made me think about summer hair care. 😊 To be honest a few years before I was wondering if it was really necessary to make a difference between the seasons regarding hair care. I thought why should I? …my hair is the same now and a few months later as well. Of course I have learned by experience that it is a really good thing. Although I am the same a lot of different environmental effects can make my hair suffer in summer. I love hanging out with friends and enjoy summer sun but it makes the hair dry by damaging its cuticle. …and there is nothing better on a hot summer day than swimming in the sea which also stresses hair by drawing out the water of it given the high amount of seasalt.

Protect your hair in Summer

Summer weather can be really stressful for hair. After a hot day we are all happy to have a cool shower and shampoo as well. I was surprised when I was adviced to shampoo less frequently during this season. Too much shampoo may take the necessary oils away from scalp and at the end it can make the hair even more oily. A good solution can be using a dry shampoo or just rinsing the hair with clear water.

After writing so much about the bad effects of this lovely weather it is time to think about what can we do to reduce hair damage.

Protect your hair and enjoy Summer

  1. Protect yourself from UV exposure. You have more possibilities to do that. You can wear a hat or just run your sun-creamed hands along your hair to apply some cream on it. Using hair care products with UV filter is also an available option but such products contain more chemicals then a normal shampoo.
  2. Use clarifying shampoo at least once a week and do not forget about deep conditioning. This shampoo will not just clean your hair but helps to get rid of nicotine and environmental pollutants while washes away the signs of ageing. For the perfect finish apply this rich conditioner with shea butter and meadowfoam.
  3. Given the weather is hot avoid additional heating, like flat-iron or blow-dryer and wear comfortable and loose hairstyles.
  4. And two more in the row to support the whole human body. Drink enough water to avoid dehydration and help your body in regulating your temperature.
  5. Consume sufficient vitamins and minerals.

Prevent hair damages in Summer

Do your best to protect your hair and skin from the negative effects of summer and enjoy this lovely season as long as it last. 😉 If you would be happy to have more information about the products I offer or a more favourable price feel free to contact me at info@yourbeautyhair.co.uk or use Your Beauty Hair’s contact form.
