I try to get out as much as possible during the summer because I know winter is looming around the next corner to ruin our fun in the sun.

I love biking, taking long walks, swimming, or spending all day at amusement parks during the summer months. All of these activities are great for my mind, body and soul, but can wreak havoc on delicate tresses. It’s just as important to take extra precaution in the summer's sun as it is in the harsh winter weather. The sun can dry out the hair and leave it brittle if it's not properly and regularly cared for. Here are some tips to keep your hair healthy and flourishing during these wonderful summer months.

  1. Keep your hair protected by wearing buns, extensions, or twists to avoid total exposure to sun
  2. If you are planning to stay in the sun for long periods of time, use a protective sunscreen on your hair before stepping out. Be sure to wash the hair afterwards.
  3. Stay away from heating appliances such as flat-iron, hot combs, or curling irons. If you MUST use them, be sure to use a heat protectant.
  4. Do not wash your hair with hot water; this will dry out the hair. Use cool water instead.
  5. Avoid using products containing alcohol, mineral oil, paraffin gel and other ingredients that lead to dry brittle hair. Sweet Nature by Eddie is formulated with endless healthy and hydrating ingredients.
  6. Moisturize your hair daily. Use a light misting spray or natural moisturizer regularly such as our MSM Herbal Moisturizing Spray
  7. Always use a moisturizing shampoo that does not contain lauryl/laureth sulfate. We carry an amazing one!
  8. Deep condition with a moisturizing conditionerhair after every shampoo.
  9. Drink plenty of water to help keep yourself and your hair hydrated.
  10. For extremely dry hair, moisturize hair at night and sleep with a plastic cap under a scarf in order to allow the moisture to penetrate the hair.
  11. Before plunging into a pool, be sure to coat the hair with either a moisturizer or conditioner if possible. Wear a swim cap and wash the hair as soon as possible after exiting the pool.
Yes, taking a dip can be fun and a relief from the hot sun, but if you aren't careful, your hair can suffer. Have fun, but follow these steps so your healthy hair can go into the cooler months ready to take on the winter.
