Healthy Summer Hair Habits

You may love summer – but your hair doesn't! Embrace these healthy hair habits to help protect your locks against a season of harsh environmental conditions, swimming and constant pre-party heat styling.

Wash Strategy

Your hair may feel a little dirtier over summer, but there's no need to wash it every single day. Excess washing strips away the natural oils and fades hair colour quicker. Invest in a quality shampoo and conditioner and use a dry shampoo like L'Oréal Professionnel TECNI.Art Morning After Dust to tide you over between washes.

Chop It Off

Even if you're trying to grow your hair, having regular trims every three month trims is essential for maintaining the hair quality and keeping split ends at bay. Plus a shorter 'do is far more low maintenance in summer – especially when you're constantly in and out of the water.

Provide A Sun Shield

Your skin isn't the only thing that needs protection from the harmful UV sun rays. Covering your head with a wide brimmed hat helps to prevent hair colour fade and moisture loss. (And it looks stylish too!)

Use Heat Protection

A bustling social calendar is common during summer, which often equates to an increased amount of heat styling. Always use a heat protection product like L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Sève Protectrice to nourish and protect the hair prior to using any heat tools.

Deep Condition Weekly

Hair hydration levels are under constant threat during summer due to ocean swimming, chlorinated pools, air-conditioned rooms and over styling. That's why it's so important to be extra vigilant about using a weekly deep conditioning treatment like L'Oréal Professionnel Liss Unlimited Mask to restore smoothness and moisture to the lengths.

Embrace Natural Texture

Why spend all summer stuck in front of the mirror when you could be out enjoying everything summer has to offer?! Embracing your hair's natural texture is not only on-trend, but it's far more practical during summer, especially if your hair is prone to doing its own thing in warm humid conditions. Whatever your natural style - work it!
