Most of you know by now that the sun’s sweltering heat can leave your hair dry and unruly, or limp and greasy. But not everyone knows that there are easy, budget-friendly solutions for that. Follow these tips if you want to transform your hair from lank and lifeless to glamorous and gorgeous (without hurting your wallet!).
1. Use a hard-working hair conditioner.
Summer is when hair may feel extra dry and unruly. Give it some love with a hydrating conditioner like Cream Silk Fresh Hydration, a summer must-have that keeps hair fresh and moisturized all day. Designed to combat dryness, this conditioner has a hydra-collagen complex formulation that binds water to hair and seals in intense moisture. It also has a non-greasy formulation, preventing hair from becoming greasy and giving it that fresh feeling for up to 24 hours.
2. Keep your scalp clean.
Experts advise washing your hair daily if you live in a polluted and humid city. Complement your conditioner with a mild shampoo that won’t dry out your scalp. Giving your scalp a massage as you shampoo is also a great way to detoxify it and promote healthy hair growth.
3. Remember: Scalding hot water is a no-no.
Turn down the temps in the shower. Blasting your scalp with hot water can dry out your hair and create tangles that can result in breakage. Stick to warm water or water at room temperature when washing your hair, then rinse out the conditioner with cooler water to lock in the moisturizing benefits. Cold water also seals the cuticle, allowing light to reflect off the hair, producing shine.
4. Avoid rubbing a towel against your hair.
You’re in for a bad hair day if you brush a towel against your locks. The friction on your hair’s cuticle will result in dry, frizzy, and weak strands. Instead, gently squeeze the water out of your hair or pat it dry with a soft towel. Better yet, use an old cotton T-shirt to dry your hair. Worn-in tees have a flat and smooth surface, so they don’t rough up the hair.
