How to Keep Your Hair Healthy This Summer

The summer season is a time for fun in the sun, but it can also be tough on your hair. The sun's UV rays, chlorine from swimming pools, and saltwater can all damage your hair, leaving it dry, frizzy, and prone to breakage.

But don't worry! There are a few things you can do to protect your hair from the summer elements and keep it healthy and beautiful all season long.

Stay Hydrated

Just as staying hydrated is essential for your body, it's crucial for your hair as well. The summer heat can dehydrate both your body and hair, making it essential to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Proper hydration will help maintain your hair's moisture levels, keeping it nourished and less prone to dryness.


Protect Your Hair from UV Rays

Prolonged exposure to the sun's UV rays can damage your hair, leading to color fading and increased dryness. To shield your hair from the sun, wear a wide-brimmed hat or use a UV protection spray. L'ANZA's Keratin Healing Oil Hair Treatment offers UV protection and helps guard against damage caused by the sun's rays.

Minimize Heat Styling

In the summer, opt for natural hairstyles that require less heat styling. Embrace your hair's natural texture or try out heatless curling methods. Reducing the use of hot tools like flat irons and curling wands will prevent additional heat damage and help your hair retain its moisture.

Deep Condition Regularly

Treat your hair to deep conditioning treatments regularly during the summer months. Deep conditioning helps repair and replenish moisture in your hair, combating the dryness caused by sun and heat exposure. L'ANZA's Healing Moisture Moi Moi Hair Masque is an excellent option, enriched with natural botanicals to hydrate and revitalize your locks.

Use a Clarifying Shampoo:

After swimming in the pool or the ocean, use a clarifying shampoo to remove chlorine, salt, and other impurities from your hair. L'ANZA's Healing ColorCare Clarifying Shampoo effectively cleanses your hair and scalp, removing build-up without stripping away essential moisture.

Keep Hair Tangle-Free

Be gentle with your hair, especially when it's wet, as it is more susceptible to breakage. Use a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush to remove knots and tangles without causing damage.

Avoid Overwashing

Frequent washing can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and brittle. During the summer, when you might be sweating more, consider using a dry shampoo in between washes to refresh your hair without overwashing. L'ANZA's Dry Shampoo is perfect for keeping your hair looking fresh while absorbing excess oil.
