In the previous blog, we’ve already discussed the main principles of hair care in the summer. Nevertheless, if you want to help your hair to go through the warm period lightly, specialists at the best hair salon in New York advice to include the following tips to your daily hair regimen.

Tip #1Use oil

Essential oils are natural sources of nourishment for our hair. Apply few drops of oil and massage your scalp; it will also help to dump the dirt and dust out of the scalp and to improve the blood circulation.

Tip #2 Protect hair

Just like our skin, our hair needs sun protection. The easiest way to do it – is to wear a scarf or a hat. If it is not your variant, opt for a product with a good amount of SPF (for example, leave-in conditioner). Once you are at home, wash your hair to avoid product build up.

Tip #3 Control frizz

Your hair gets frizzy because of the heat and dehydration. Restore your hydration balance by drinking plenty of water and control frizz by creating different hair styles. There is a wide variety to choose from: braids, ponytails, updos, buns, and knots.

Tip #4 Stay natural

Unfortunately, hair coloring has a damaging effect and the sun heat only double it. If you want to change the hair color, you should think about going to this procedure at least two months before the scorching sun ray can spoil the hair quality.

Tip #5 Dry hair

If you use the hair dryer too often, your hair will eventually become dull and brittle. In the summer, air drying is the best option.
