All dressed up and everywhere to go! We are about two weeks out from the official start of summer and that means, pool parties, BBQs and summer Fridays.
And whether you’re at events for work or pleasure, the fact is we’re all about to have some fun under the sun. But there’s ONE downfall: the blazing summer heat has the ability to do major damage to our hair.
Beauty experts know it’s important during these months to keep your hair covered, moisturized, and to keep your scalp hydrated as well. This is why we rounded up a few of our favorite tips for summer hair care below with our friends at WEN® Hair & Body Care by Chaz Dean.
Get your head in the hair game girl.
1. WEAR YOUR HAIR UP
Pulling your hair back and out of your face is a must for long summer days. Throw it up in a high pony or rock a topknot fresh out of the shower. You could get creative and spice up the look every so often with accessories. Headbands, scarves and even over-the-top straw hats for beach days, when you need a little more shade.
2. CONDITION, CONDITION, CONDITION
Keeping your hair conditioned is the number one summer hair care essential. From leave-in conditioning sprays to overnight deep conditioner creams, there are many ways to keep the moisture locked in. One of our favorite conditioners (and yes, it smells as good as it sounds) is the WEN® Summer Coconut Lime Verbena Cleansing Conditioner. It’s enhanced with antioxidant rich four-tea complex, strengthening amino acid blend as well as Coconut, Lime, Verbena oils, and extracts help to enhance shine, volume and body. All while keeping the moisture locked in.
3. USE A HYDRATING MASK
For an extra boost of hydration, try a mask. We all know DIY spa days aren’t complete without our favorite soothing or brightening face masks, but a hair mask can work wonders as well. The WEN® Summer Honey Peach ReMoist Hydrating Mask is full of nutrients to maintain healthy hair and scalp. It helps improve lackluster hair, restoring it to a much healthier state. Just apply the mask to clean, wet hair. Comb through, clip hair up, and leave-on for 30-45 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and style as desired.
4. WRAP IT
Another sure-fire way to protect your gorgeous locks from the unforgiving summer heat, is to wrap it up. Try braiding your hair back and pinning the loose pieces up, then throwing on a fun and playful scarf on top. There’s no such thing as a bad hair day if your hair isn’t in the way!
5. TRY A TREATMENT OIL
Our scalps naturally emit oils on a regular basis to keep our bodies in balance. It might seem crazy to think about adding more oil to your scalp in the summertime, but it’s a great way to keep your scalp hydrated and actually helps your hair grow a bit faster. The WEN® Summer Mango Coconut Treatment Oil is a unique blend of nourishing oils. It blends the moisturizing properties of Argan oil, the restorative properties of Abyssinian oil and other nourishing botanicals. This treatment oil hydrates and softens both hair and skin. It is a non-greasy formula perfect for daily use.
