The chemicals in the water that we use to wash our hair in could make a huge difference...
Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) May 14, 2013
On May 14- Online beauty supply store NewVo Beauty supports the best ways to care for hair during the summer months.
According to an article by the Digital Journal, hot temperatures and other summer hair stressors such as humidity call for serious hair protection. “The damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays on the scalp, hair follicles, and hair shaft are often overlooked. Add in salt from ocean swimming, chlorine from dips in the pool, and frizz from high humidity, and it’s easy to see why summer sun can be hard on hair.”
The article offers these 5 tips to help combat the hair issues associated with summertime:
- Shield your hair- Covering hair up with a hat helps protect it from UV damage. “If you protect your skin from the sun, then why not also protect your hair from it too?” asks NewVo Beauty representative Sara Greenstone. “The sun can cause damage to your hair as well, so we recommend covering up your hair when you are in direct sunlight for a long period of time.”
- Use a hot oil treatment- A weekly treatment can help give some much needed moisture to hair. “Try using a product like argan oil for a hot oil treatment. Argan oil is a natural type of oil that penetrates deep into your hair and scalp, giving you that added hydration that your hair craves during the summer,” says Greenstone.
- Skip the shampoo- For those that wash their hair often, stop shampooing on a daily basis to allow the scalp’s natural oils to build back up.
- Filter your water- Use a filter in the shower. It can block out harsh chemicals that are commonly in water. “The chemicals in the water that we use to wash our hair in could make a huge difference,” says Greenstone. “Along with filtering shower water, try using a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner.”
- Give your scalp a massage- A quick massage before showing can help exfoliate old cells from your scalp.
