|This beauty knows how to think ahead to protect her hair.|
Though summer is my favorite time of the year, I hate how the sun can play havoc with hair and turn it dry like straw. Even worse is how sun fades your hair color while it can make it brittle enough to crunch when rubbed between your fingers. To avoid this type of seasonal hair damage, let me guide you through some helpful summer hair protection tips to keep your hair at its best.
When considering specialized summer hair protection, your thoughts should turn to pools and the effects of chlorine.Pools and that awful chlorine can also rob your beautiful hair of its glory by stripping out the hairs’ natural oils. If you’re not careful, blondes can find themselves sporting that striking new shade of green. Did you know that justing wetting your hair first with regular water not pool water before you jump in and swim can prevent that new shade?
However, I found a wonderful homemade conditioning spray you can make in your kitchen to help in your battle from sun-baked summer hair. You will need a clean empty spray bottle to fill up with this brew. In addition, you just need to gather three basic ingredients that you are sure to have.
If you remember to prepare a batch before going on into the sun for summer hair protection, your hair will thank you later for keeping it healthy! You also might want to read another valuable post on summer hair care tips.
DIY Summer Hair Protection Spray
Mix equal parts of all three of those ingredients into your empty clean spray bottle until filled.
Spray your hair every time you get it wet in the pool or give it a squirt through every so often if you’re hatless and lingering in the sun for a long time. Be sure to comb the squirt of hair protector through with your hand to distribute it evenly.
This will help keep that hair feeling softer and save it from damage!
