Six steps to summer hair care success

Six steps to summer hair care success

Hot, humid weather can play havoc with our hair. In this natural hair tutorial, we help you to protect your hair from summer frizz and UV damage to keep it shiny all summer long.

 

Why change your hair care routine for summer?

Just like our skin, our hair is extremely susceptible to UV damage and summer dehydration.

UV light exposure causes the scales of the hair cuticle to lift away from the surface of the hair shaft. This stops the outer layer from protecting the hair properly, allowing moisture and lipids (oils naturally present in healthy hair) to escape.

In addition to causing frizzy, straw-like summer hair, the raised scales also make the surface of the hair rougher, which causes a loss of shine and the appearance of dull, lifeless hair.

 

Build a summer hair care routine

Keep your hair healthy this summer with our summer hair care routine to support strength and shine.   

1. Choose a summer shampoo

For hair that needs volume, vitality and frizz-relief in the summer, we suggest Quinoa & Artichoke Shampoo.

Infused with zesty ginger and orange oils, this moisturising summer shampoo is made with protein-rich Quinoa which helps to restore hair thickness, strength and shine.

A great shampoo for those that want frizz-free locks, it also features Artichoke, an active known for its natural ability to smoothe the hair’s surface and shield against damage caused by exposure to UV radiation.

“This is a great product which always keeps my hair moisturised and fresh feeling no matter what I throw at it (sun, chlorine from the pool, extra washing due to grass allergies and more). Love it.” Val

2. Choose a summer conditioner

Our Quinoa & Artichoke Conditioner is the perfect choice for a summer conditioner. It can be applied to the ends of the hair but also makes a great weekly hair mask for hair that’s been exposed to heat or sunlight.

To use as a hair mask, apply to the ends of damp hair and then wrap the hair in a warm towel for 10 minutes. During this time the amino acid Quinoa proteins will deeply condition each hair so, after rinsing, hair feels soft, thick and has a healthy shine.

After rinsing your conditioner, gently comb the hair using a wide toothed wooden comb and notice how the hair feels more manageable and the knots slip away without causing discomfort – perfect for smoothing away post-beach tangles!

3. Choose a hair serum for summer

You can also keep your hair feeling soft and conditioned throughout warm summer days by applying a leave-in hair serum.

Our nutrient-packed Quinoa & Avocado Hair Serum keeps style in place and defines curls whilst leaving hair soft and bouncy.

“Has the lovely lingering fragrance of summer meadows. Eliminates frizz and gives fabulous volume, to my normally very flat, hair. Non-greasy texture doesn’t leave any residue. Thoroughly recommend!” Caroline

3 more ways to protect your hair from summer damage

WEAR A HAT

Wearing a hat or a headscarf is a stylish way to protect your hair from summer hair damage, and also help to prevent sunburned parting.

If wearing a straw hat, be aware that any gaps I the weaving could let sunlight through.

HYDRATE

Drink plenty of water to help maintain hydration. Aim to drink 8 glasses of water a day.

TRIM

Flyaway split ends can cause summer hair frizz. Invest in a summer trim to stop split ends from working their way up the hair.
