It’s summertime, and what do we want?! Hair that is on POINT!
To achieve this Beyonce-level flawlessness, there are a few steps you should take to maintain the health and essence of your hair:
- Protect it from the sun by using a UV protectant spray. There are many products out there, so just do some research and pick one that fits your particular budget or hair needs. Once you get it, spray it lightly all over your hair and use it as a “hair” sunscreen. Here is a great article from Cosmopolitan that lists a number of excellent (and affordable) products to shield your hair from sun damage.
- This might seem obvious, but wear a hat when you know you’re going to be in the sun for prolonged periods of time. This is especially important for those of us with colored hair. After all… what protects your hair better than a hat? Plus, you have the added benefit of protecting your skin with the right hat coverage.

- If you’re planning to swim in a chlorinated pool, be sure to use a swimmer’s shampoo that helps break down chlorine buildup. Also, some lines carry packets that you can even mix in with your regular shampoo. For example, Malibu has a great line of solution packets. If you only swim in pools occasionally, using this treatment once a week will be just fine. Note: if you have fine hair, hair that gets tangled easily, or blonde hair, using a swimmer’s shampoo is especially important.
So don’t be afraid soak up the sun this season, #BeautyKOs! Let your locks shine!
