How to care for your hair in summer: beauty secrets from a beauty expert

Natural natural hair is the main trend of summer 2021! Now is the time to ditch perfect, sleek hairstyles and give your hair a free, natural look.

And to keep your hair healthy all summer long, use simple summer hair care methods combined with natural products, no chemicals and no extra cost.

Cover your hair

When in the sun, be sure to cover your head with a scarf or hat. This not only provides additional UV protection, but also helps the scalp retain moisture. The hat reduces wind damage, especially if your hair is prone to dryness and tangles. Also, by covering your head, you will protect your dyed hair from dullness and premature color fading.

The selection of hats and scarves is now so huge that you can change your look with these accessories every day.

Style your hair into a loose, comfortable hairstyle

A messy braid is perfect for keeping your hair in check and minimizing sun exposure. Tight hairstyles in the summer can be harmful. They pull on hair and can damage its structure, especially if your hair is dry from the summer heat.

Pull your hair into a loose braid, as if purposely sloppy and careless. This look goes well with summer sundresses, cropped tops and shorts.

Wash your hair less often

Yes, no matter how strange it sounds, try to wash your hair less often in the summer. Frequent washing robs the scalp of its natural oils. Excessive dryness of the scalp stimulates additional production of sebum, which means that the head begins to get even more oily. Just try rinsing your head with running water in the shower after a hot day at the beach or in the pool and you will get rid of the feeling of oily hair.

Alternatively, you can use natural dry shampoo or regular cornstarch, which can be applied to the roots of dry hair. These products absorb excess sebum and leave your hair looking clean and fresh. This will allow you to go a little longer without shampooing your hair.

Another quick fix is ​​to blot your scalp with a cotton swab dipped in witch hazel to dissolve excess oil.

Put away your hair dryer

Try to blow dry your hair as little as possible. In summer, hair is already exposed to daily heat. Therefore, you can give the hair dryer a break and air dry your hair. The summer breeze and hot sun will dry your hair naturally.

Also, avoid irons, as they will further damage your already dry hair. In addition, a smooth hairstyle is not the most relevant in the summer, when natural curls in a nautical style will look more natural and beautiful.

Make your own hydrating water

The easiest way to moisturize your hair is with water and natural moisturizing ingredients. Make a mixture of water, aloe vera juice, and avocado oil. Pour the liquid into a spray bottle and keep it close at hand for a spray whenever you need to moisturize your hair. Another good option is argan oil mixed with water. By the way, you can moisturize your face with such water during the whole hot day.

Maintain your radiant blonde

If you are blonde and your hair has turned yellow or even green after swimming in the pool - don't panic! Try rinsing wet hair with 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar and 2 cups water. Wet your hair with this solution before going into the water and then it will not absorb chlorine. This will help get rid of discoloration, dullness, and yellowness.

Add some sunscreen

There are shampoos out there that contain UV protection, but most of them are regular shampoos with chemicals that I would recommend avoiding. One quick and safe way to add protection to your hair is to use your regular body sunscreen. After you have applied the sunscreen to your body, lightly run your hands with the remains of the cream through your hair so that it is protected. It is important not to overdo it with the cream in order not to make your hair greasy.

Nourish your hair with liquid oils

Ideal oils to deeply moisturize your hair are coconut, olive and avocado oils. They penetrate well into the hair shaft, nourishing and moisturizing it from the inside. Rinse hair with your usual shampoo, then apply oil from roots to ends. Leave on hair for 20 minutes and rinse thoroughly. Use shampoo if oil does not wash off your hair well. After doing this, your hair should feel hydrated, but not greasy.

Doing a nautical hairstyle

If a seaside holiday isn't on your way this summer, you can add a beachy feel with surf curls. To do this, you need to prepare a homemade sea salt spray. Take 1 teaspoon of sea salt and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, mix everything with water in a small spray bottle. Spray on hair and squeeze hair with your hands to get the desired wavy beach look. Voila! Beach surf - curls are ready! And coconut oil will add extra moisture to your hair by neutralizing the salt.

Apply a nourishing hair mask

For deep nourishment and hair restoration, use a nourishing egg mask. The egg mask helps to restore damaged hair structure and stimulates hair growth. To prepare such a mask, you only need one yolk and a couple of drops of lemon. Dilute the mixture with water and shake. Apply full length and rinse off after 20 minutes. Use this mask on your hair at least once a week. You will notice how your hair becomes firmer and more radiant.
