Summer is the season every year to look forward to. Longer days, hot warm weather, great clothes, and summer fun. One thing that might put a pinch in your summer plans is your hair. Heat and Humidity can be the enemy of curly hair. So, here are some tips on how to let your curly hair slay during the summer season.
1. Put Down The Shampoo
Washing your curly hair constantly strips your strands of their natural oils. Instead of shampooing every couple of days, just rinse your hair with water to get rid of the extra oils or co-wash to retain moisture and remove build up. If you have super oily hair, try dry shampoo to bring some life back to your strands.
2. Low Maintenance Styles
Think about styling less when it comes down to your curls this summer. Summer is the perfect time to perfect your wash and go technique, to let your curls flourish unbothered this summer in their natural state.
Just because winter is over, doesn’t mean you stop deep conditioning your hair. The heat and humidity still take the moisture from your curls, which result in your strands being thirsty, begging for moisture. Keep deep conditioning your curls so your hair can remain soft and beautiful. Texture ID: Deep Treatment Masque, is great for this.
4. Hair Color
No more winter blues and that might mean changing up your look. Give hair color a shot. If you don’t want something permanent, then try semi-permanent dye, or temporary color, that washes out after a few shampoos.
If you live in a state like New York, hydration is your best friend. Just like deep conditioning. The heat will take away all of your hairs moisture. It’s not fair I know but finding a good product like Camille Rose: Curl Love Moisture Milk, which is thick enough and light enough to keep your curls hydrated and styled. One of the best things about this product is, it smells like cake.
So, take those tips in stride, and let your curls be their best self this summer.
