Common Summer Hair Problems and How to Solve Them

Summer is rapidly approaching and before we know it, we will have to face all the beauty problems that come with it. Each of us have our weaknesses, whether it is our skin, our hair or our body shape, that will make us feel a little stressed during the summer season.

Summer hair problems range from oily scalps to dry ends. The strong sun, the salty sea water and the humidity can all contribute to a hairstyle that you did not plan and will not enjoy. So how can you turn those strands of hair into sexy locks that can seduce anyone?

If your hair tends to dry out during the summer, you need to be prepared. Damaged, dry hair is anything but beautiful, and if you want it to grow out and limit frizz, you might want to focus on moisturizing your hair. Choose a no-sulphate formula for your shampoo, since it will not dry your hair as much as sulphate-containing ones. Besides, a shampoo with no sulphates AND with some oils will contribute to the beauty and health of your hair. There are many shampoos with argan oil, almond oil or coconut oil on the market. The next step is conditioner. Go for one that says it is for dry, damaged hair or something similar. Moisturizing hair products are an absolute must for the summer season!

Leave-in conditioners are the other miracle workers. They will deep-condition your hair and protect it from the environment. A good idea is to apply it on your lengths and ends before going sunbathing: it will protect your hair from the damaging sun rays and also will penetrate even deeper in your hair that way.

There are great products out there which battle frizz. The ones that contain Vitamin E are perfect for girls with curlier hair, while serums with silk protein and bamboo will be more appropriate for the ones with straighter hair.

Natural oils are also a good idea to keep your hair healthy, moisturized and protected. Just go for one and stick with it until the end: coconut, almond, argan, jojoba, avocado, etc. Simply apply it and heat it up every time before you get a shower: it will do wonders!
Last but not least, sunscreen for your hair is an absolute necessity! You do not want to neglect the damage that UV rays can cause to your hair. Yes, you might wear a hat or a scarf, but still, if you take it off at a certain point, you might want to have put something on your hair before that. Products with vitamin E and sunflower oil with protect your hair color and keep your hair healthy!
