Summertime Healthy Hair Hacks!

Summertime Healthy Hair Hacks!

Summer is here and that means long days and hot nights! But it can also mean unnecessary damage for your hair. Luckily, Hair La Vie is here to help! By following the tips and tricks listed below, you can keep your hair healthy throughout the summertime pool parties and jacuzzi sessions.

We all know that swimming in a pool can be harsh on the hair. When hair gets wet with pool water, the shafts absorb the chlorine, which strips hair of its natural oils. If you swim frequently, the repeated drying can cause your hair's protective cuticles to crack, which leads to split ends and frequent breakage.

We found the best summertime hair care hacks and made you a little cheat sheet to simplify your fun in the sun:

1. Coat the hair in oil or a silicone-based product. Hair La Vie's serum is perfect for preventing heat damage and keeping the hair’s moisture locked in, stopping chlorine damage in its tracks!

2. Apply a leave-in conditioner before swimming or going into the heat. By protecting your hair with conditioner before hitting the pool, you’ll seal the hair cuticle and help keep a barrier between your hair and the chlorine.

3. Try putting your hair up in a ponytail or bun. When hair is wet, especially in chlorinated pool, it can easily become tangled. By having it up, or wrapped in a bun, you are able to avoid tangles, which often lead to split ends and breakage.

4. For those with dry  or thick hair, try wearing a swim cap. We know it might not be fashionable, but it is effective! Not allowing the chlorine to penetrate the strands is your best defense.

5. After swimming, try to wash your hair as soon as possible. Using a shampoo rich in natural oils is perfect to help replenish from the chemicals and heat your hair was just exposed to. Make sure to use cool or lukewarm water to seal the cuticle layer and keep the hair from drying out!

Nobody wants to enter fall with a chemical haircut or worse, chlorine-green hair. So follow the above tips, remember to always use SPF, and enjoy the lazy summer days!
