Summer is fast approaching ladies, and we all know that blazing sun + salt water + chlorine is a recipe for dry and dull hair. These tricks will help keep your tresses safe and vibrant all summer!
#1 Protect Your Color With Vinegar Salt water and sun are a great combination, just not for your hair. No matter what shade, it's bound to lose it's luster in the blazing summer heat. Spray your hair with apple cider vinegar, let sit for about 10 minutes and rinse. Do this each time you spend a day at the beach and your color will look fresh and vibrant all summer long!
#2 Prevent Your Blonde Locks From Turning Green Calling all blonde bombshells - no one wants green tresses! Before jumping in the pool, coat your hair with with leave-in conditioner or either coconut or olive oil. Of course, rinse your hair with chlorine-free water as soon as you're done swimming, preferably cold water to help with shine!
#3 Use Avocado To Repair Dried-Out Hair About half way through summer I start to notice the toll the sun has taken on my hair. Between swimming in the pool, the ocean and laying out, my hair is screaming for moisture. This DIY mask will help revive sad strands --> Mix one ripe avocado, one egg, one tablespoon honey and one tablespoon coconut oil into a blender. Apply from mid-shaft to the ends and cover with a shower cap. Leave on for 20 minutes and rinse!
#4 Fight Frizz With Coconut Oil While there are tons of anti-frizz products out there, opting for the more natural route is the safest/cheapest way to go for your hair. Mix equal parts coconut oil and avocado oil into a spray bottle and mist the frizzy/dry parts of your hair. This should help tame fly-aways and add some shine.
#5 Opt For Sea Salt Sprays Your hair will be going through enough this summer so watch the over styling. Swap your hair dryer for a sea salt spray instead and let your hair do it's thing.
