Protecting Your Hair from the Summer Sun

by HSI Professional | May 23 2017

Summer is right around the corner, but if you’re here reading this, then you’re already pretty aware of that. There is a difference between winter hair and summer hair, and you probably want to make sure that yours stays protected under this cruel, unforgiving heat that we’re about to have. Sometimes that can be a bit easier said than done, but with the right products, and with the right techniques you can keep your hair looking just as healthy and shiny as ever. Argan oil in your hair, for example, is a great start, but so is paying attention to the elements that we introduce.

The Three Elements of Summer

There seem to be three elements that summer brings with it, some natural, some not:
  • Sun
  • Chlorine
  • Water

You don’t need us to explain how these are going to introduce themselves to you – you’ve been down this road before. What you might not realize, however, is how much damage they can actually cause. Our hair takes serious beating, especially during the summer months, and with that being the case, you need to find a way to keep your hair as healthy as possible. Don’t worry, we have a few tips, including those that involve Argan for hair.

Step 1: Protect Your Hair by Locking in the Moisture

The elements of summer that we mentioned above can do a great job of tearing the moisture right from your hair, and it won’t be long before you start experiencing breakage. There are a lot of different methods you can use to protect yourself from this, the first being to wear a wide brimmed hat – though not everyone is in favor of adding a hat to their wardrobe. Your other option, will be to use a product that moisturizes and shields your hair – make sure you always use such a product after a shower to keep your hair in good condition every single day.

Step 2: Shield Your Hair

The summertime sees us putting our hair through a lot of ‘torture’, as it were. We’re more prone to taking a dip in the pool, or baking in the hot sun, and so, before you do any of those things, we strongly recommend applying a leave-in conditioner to your hair. By doing this, you will ensure that your hair absorbs the conditioner rather than chlorine from a pool or salt from the ocean. If you’re still on the fence about it, let us remind you that HSI sells a great leave-in conditioner built on argan oil, and it’s really not that pricey.

Step 3: The Defense Against Frizz

Humidity is rampant in the summer, and if you don’t protect your hair properly, then there is a good chance that you’re going to end up dealing with frizzy hair. Anyone who is already prone to frizzy hair knows the dal: keep your hair defended against it. One of the most common methods for doing so is the use of Argan oil, which you will find plenty of in our online store.

Step 4: Protect it from Heat

We’re not talking about the heat from the sun, we’re talking about the heat you inflict on yourself – heat that you would find right inside your very own bathroom. The heat from your flat iron can be a serious problem for you, and you may not have even been aware. Flat irons can take a toll on your hair, which is why we strongly recommend using our heat protectant product, which can be found here:

Using Argan for hair, this product really is light years ahead of most others on the market, so strongly consider it when you’re getting ready for the rigors of summer. As you can see, there’s a lot you need to do to make sure that your hair is ready for summer, and it’s not necessarily going to be the easiest thing in the world.

Now would be a great time to start stocking up on products that will keep your hair in top shape, and ensure that it stay safe whether you’re soaking up the sun, swimming, or straightening. Summer is harsh, so prepare yourself with HSI’s signature products!
