Not So Common Hair Care Tips on How to Beat the Summer Heat

With the summer months here, remember that the warmer weather and humidity can do a number on your hair. Being prepared for the summer is the best way to beat the heat. Here are some helpful industry secrets from the Color bar hair salon that will help keep your hair healthy all summer long.


Sunscreen can do more than protect just your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. If you find yourself out in the sun without a hat to protect your hair, spray some sunscreen on your hands and run it through your hair. The UV protection used on your skin will work the same way on your hair. It also may be even better than UV protectant shampoos as they are heavy with chemicals.

Give In

Women who straighten their hair on a daily basis tend to have a tough time with that task during the summer months. Instead of fighting the humidity, give in and go with your natural look. There are also several texturizing sprays that provide some flexibility when it comes to styling your hair. Summer is the perfect time to go all natural. Next time your in for salon services, ask a stylist for tips to achieve a low fuss hair style.

Highlight Naturally

Avoiding hair coloring in the summer can ease the stress on your hair. However, if you are looking to add some highlights that are rather subtle, you can do it naturally. Before going out in the sun, squeeze out all the juice from a fresh lemon and run the juice through your hair. Doing this twice a month should provide you with some natural highlights.

Post Pool Care

Swimming pools contain chlorine, which can be particularly damaging to all kinds of hair. A simple tip for post-swimming hair care is to use Apple Cider Vinegar. Add about a quarter cup to a full cup of water and pour it on your hair after a washing. Then, simply rinse it out and your hair will be chlorine free.

Invest in a Dehumidifier

The humidity in the summer months can mean a lot of frizz. To cut down on that frizz, keep a dehumidifier running in your bedroom while you sleep. This will provide your hair with some much-needed relief at night.
