Moisturising is key
Your body is not the only one that needs water. Keeping your hair hydrated is also very important to avoid breakage and damage. Switch to a moisturising shampoo and conditioner. A good option is to choose products that contain some of these ingredients – Sabal extract, Zinc Gluconate, Panthenol and Avocado Oil.
Avoid excessive heat (your hair will thank you later)
During the hot season there is nothing better than letting the hair dry naturally. Enjoy this time to try new hair styles like ponytails, braids and buns. You can always add a nice accessory to complete your look.
Try to avoid blow drying your hair. If you can’t do that – remember to lower the heat and put on a cooler setting.
Sulphate free shampoo
Choose a sulphate free shampoo as sulphate can dry your scalp and strips away the natural oil from your hair. One of the benefits of a sulphate free shampoo is that it will help to keep the natural moisture of your hair.
Look after your scalp
Do not forget to properly wash your scalp. It’s important to wash off the salt water, chloride water and the sweat. Remember to massage your scalp with your fingertips to better apply the shampoo all the way to the scalp, besides that, who doesn’t like a head massage?
Rinse your hair well
If you can, prefer cold water to wash your hair. It will make it shinier and smoother. It is important to take all the residue out of your hair, you don’t want to make your hair look heavy.
