How to Take Care of Summer Hair – Top Tips from Cheynes Hair & Beauty Salons in Edinburgh
Summer is the time for relaxing in the sun, paddling in the pool and BBQs with your friends. But while you’re having fun, you may not realise that your hair is suffering!
Some of the environmental factors that can be damaging for your hair are the sun’s harsh rays, chlorine from the pool and even sea salt! They can lead to dry hair that is prone to splitting and breaking. But this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy your favourite summer activities – instead, just make sure you stock up on the best summer hair products for healthy hair!
Check out the top tips for healthy hair from the hair experts at Cheynes Hair Salons in Edinburgh.
Protect Your Hair From Pool Chlorine
While you may think that getting your hair wet in the pool wouldn’t dry it out, this is not the case! Chlorine can cause dry hair which makes it more likely to break. Also, if your hair is coloured, then chlorine may turn your hair a slightly different colour.
Yet, the solution to this problem is simple – invest in a good quality chlorine-removing shampoo. Then, when you have returned to your normal routine, book into your local Cheynes Hair Salon in Edinburgh where we can give you a professional hair conditioning treatment.
Prevent Hair Colour Fade
Coloured hair tends to fade in the sun so make sure to use a colour-protecting shampoo and conditioner to prevent your gorgeous hair colour from losing its vibrancy. If you want to be extra safe, then pop on a head scarf or hat! Make sure you book in for your colour appointment every 8 weeks so we can keep your hair colour looking fresh.
Avoid Frizzy Hair This Summer
Frizzy hair can be a struggle to deal with in the summer. The heat and humidity can ruin your fabulous hairstyle in seconds, possibly making frizzy hair the worst summer hair problem to deal with!
But don’t worry, we have the solution! To avoid a frizzy hair disaster, we need to put moisture back into the hair to prevent it from frizzing. With serums and hair oils being the most popular anti-frizz products for summer hair problems, the hair experts at Cheynes Hair & Beauty Salons in Edinburgh can help find the perfect anti-frizz products for you.
We even offer two great professional hair smoothing treatments in all of our Edinburgh salons. We offer both the Kebelo Smoothing Treatment and the KeraStraight KS Ultimate Treatment for salon smooth hair every day.
Protect Your Hair From The Summer Heat
As we’ve mentioned, the summer sun can dry out your hair so try and avoid over-using your heated styling tools. When using your styling wands, straighteners or hair dryers, make sure yo use a professional heat protection spray and hair products containing UV protection.
Again, wearing a hat is a great way to protect your hair, but if not then tie your hair into a ponytail, bun or plait so that your hair is out of the way.
