05 Aug SUMMER HAIR – Our best CurlyEllie tips for your hair this summer!
1. PROTECT YOUR HAIR FROM DIRECT HEAT WHERE POSSIBLE.
Disclaimers; Go for hats that do not let in direct sunlight and scarves made of satin or materials that won’t rub against your hair that can cause more damage.
2. PUT YOUR HAIR UP IN LOOSE, COMFORTABLE STYLES
A messy braid, pineapple hairstyle etc is ideal for simpler wash-and-go styles because it helps by limiting your hairs exposure to the sun. Tight hairstyles can be damaging because they tend to pull and tear hair and sometimes leads to traction alopecia.
3. WASH LESS OFTEN
The joys of less frequent shampooing – just ensure you are using the Nourishing Conditioner between shampoo washes. Washing too often strips your scalp of its natural oils, which in turn stimulates additional oil production and makes you feel the need to wash it even more.
Keep your detangling spray handy – you will need several top ups during the day in particularly hot heat. We all know that we have to drink more often in the heat. This applies to your hair too.
5. CONDITION MORE REGULARLY
In addition to regular conditioning with our Nourishing Conditioner, you should aim to use our Intensive Mask at least once a week.
Coat your hair with the leave-in conditioner or detangling spray before swimming. This will help your hair absorb less chlorine retaining it’s healthy natural look.
7. STAY AWAY FROM THE ROOTS
Try to apply the Leave-In conditioner to your hair, avoiding the scalp. Applying the conditioner on your scalp or right at the roots can sometimes make your hair look greasy and limp.
