Summer Hair Care Tips: Keep Your Hair Healthy in the Heat and Humidity

June 13 2024

Summer is the season of sunshine, beach days, and outdoor fun, but it can also be a challenging time for your hair. The combination of heat, humidity, and exposure to the elements can leave your hair looking frizzy, dry, and damaged. At The Masters Salon, we understand the importance of keeping your hair healthy and vibrant during the summer months. Our amazing stylists shared some great tips for maintaining healthy hair in the summer heat and humidity, including both professional services we offer and DIY tips to use between appointments.

Professional Treatments for Summer Hair Care

Aveda Botanical Treatment

One of our top recommendations for summer hair care is the Aveda Botanical Treatment. This treatment is designed to deeply nourish and repair your hair from the inside out, using natural plant-based ingredients. The Botanical Treatment provides intense hydration, restores elasticity, and strengthens your hair, making it more resilient to the effects of heat and humidity. This will definitely give your hair the ultimate hydration boost.

Aveda Deep Conditioning

Another excellent option for keeping your hair healthy during the summer is our Aveda Deep Conditioning treatment. This service infuses your hair with essential moisture and nutrients, helping to repair damage and prevent future breakage. Deep conditioning treatments are especially beneficial after spending time in the sun or swimming in chlorinated or salt water. Regular deep conditioning sessions will keep your hair soft, smooth, and manageable all summer long.

Masters Clay Pac

For those looking to detoxify and revitalize their hair, the Masters Clay Pac treatment is a perfect choice. This unique treatment uses natural clay to draw out impurities, remove product buildup, and restore your hair's natural shine and vitality. The Clay Pac treatment is ideal for maintaining healthy hair during the summer, as it helps to counteract the effects of sweat, pollution, and styling products.

DIY Tips for Healthy Summer Hair

In addition to our professional services, there are several DIY tips you can use between appointments to keep your hair looking its best during the summer months.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Keeping your hair hydrated is crucial during the summer. Use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner, and consider incorporating a leave-in conditioner or hair oil into your routine. Products like Aveda's Nutriplenish Leave-In Conditioner provide lightweight hydration and protection against environmental damage.

Protect Your Hair from the Sun

Just like your skin, your hair needs protection from the sun's harmful UV rays. Wear a hat or scarf when spending extended time outdoors, and use a UV-protectant spray, such as Aveda's Sun Care Protective Hair Veil, to shield your hair from sun damage.

Avoid Heat Styling

The summer heat can already be harsh on your hair, so it's best to minimize additional heat styling. Embrace natural hairstyles and let your hair air-dry whenever possible. If you must use heat tools, apply a heat protectant spray beforehand to minimize damage.

Rinse After Swimming

Whether you're swimming in the ocean or a chlorinated pool, it's important to rinse your hair thoroughly with fresh water immediately afterward. Salt and chlorine can be very drying and damaging to your hair, so rinsing helps to remove these substances and reduce their harmful effects.

Use a Wide-Tooth Comb

Wet hair is more prone to breakage, so use a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle your hair after washing. This will help prevent damage and keep your hair looking smooth and healthy.

Incorporate DIY Hair Masks

Between salon appointments, treat your hair to a nourishing DIY mask. Ingredients like honey, avocado, and coconut oil are excellent for adding moisture and shine. For a simple mask, mix together one mashed avocado with a tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of olive oil. Apply to your hair, leave it on for 20-30 minutes, and rinse thoroughly.

Stay Hydrated and Eat Well

Healthy hair starts from within, so make sure you're drinking plenty of water and eating a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals. Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon and walnuts, and those rich in biotin, like eggs and almonds, can promote strong, healthy hair.
