A healthy scalp equals healthy hair, so protect your head from burning in the sun with UV protection spray or, even better, a hat. These will protect your hair from the drying effects of the sun and wind as well as keep your head cool.
Don’t skip conditioner
It’s easy to forget how much stress our hair and scalp go through over the summer, thanks to all the added sun, humidity and heat. Avoid damage before it starts by using a conditioner such as Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue Dandruff Conditioner after every shampoo. It’s formulated to leaving your hair soft and beautiful.
Embrace natural styles
Give your hair a break from styling with relaxed, summer-inspired hairstyles such as loose braids or a high bun. Summer is the best time to experiment with natural looks. These styles help to keep your hair in good condition, plus, wearing your hair up in high temperatures is amazing for staying cool.
Try cold styling and air drying
Cold styling (when you style your hair damp and leave it to set) and air drying (when you leave your hair to dry naturally) are both a dream in the summer when you don’t want to get anywhere near a hairdryer. Try braiding your hair before bed when it’s still damp for natural waves in the morning, or work some Pantene Curl Controlling Curl Crème into mid lengths and ends of post-shower hair before leaving to dry naturally to help provide definition and frizz control for up to 24 hours.
Keep your hair shiny and frizz free between washes with Pantene Gold Series Intense Hydrating Oil. It instantly absorbs into hair to strengthen against damage, heal fragile strands and provide brilliant shine. Investing in a detachable diffuser for your blow dryer will also help to dry natural waves with less frizz and less heat. And when blow drying, always point the airflow down along the shaft of hair to get the glossiest look possible.
