GET YOUR HAIR SUMMER READY

5 July, 2019

Summer is nearly here, so it’s time to start thinking about how you can make your hair looks it’s best! The sun can damage your hair and scalp, just like it can with your skin! So, here’s some advice on how to protect your hair during the summer months…

Why Should You Protect Your Hair from the Sun?

We tend to be out in the sun more; swimming in chlorinated pools & salty sea water and also so we tend to sweat more! All these elements lead to damaged hair. You may be one of the lucky ones who boast healthy hair almost all year round, but due to the high exposure to the sun and humidity, you may find your hair dries out and falls flat… not ideal! Dandruff and split ends are also more common during the summer months, with sweat and dust also contributing to these issues.

Check out our advice below on how you can protect your hair:

Keep Things Tidy

Whatever length you have, the summer weather can make the ends of your hair very dry, which in turn causes split ends – not a great look!

Pop to Jacks for regular trims to avoid unsightly dry/split ends, we would recommend every 3-4 weeks. Why not try a totally new hairstyle whilst you are there? It’s summer after all.

Care For Your Colour

Take extra care during the summer if you have colour-treated hair. You may find that over exposure to the sun can lead to the colour fading and you having very dry hair!

We would recommend if you’re looking to switch up your colour, do it a month or so before the height of summer. Already coloured your hair? Direct sunlight tends to bleach your hair, so do all you can to keep out of the harsh sun!

Use Conditioner

If you find that your hair has already become damaged, dry and brittle, one way to bring your hair back to life is to use a moisturising & nourishing conditioner! Just like the Jacks of London True Gent Hassle Free Conditioner – we find it’s great for conditioning your hair and scalp, helps to strengthen, restore and protect your hair.

Pro Tip:  Use the Hassle Free Conditioner every time you wash your hair (every other day) and for added moisture leave in for up to 5 minutes.

Shampoo With Care

We wouldn’t recommend shampooing your hair every day, as you’ll lose those vital oils your hair and scalp needs. Instead rinse your hair with cold or lukewarm water on the days in between washing.

If you’re looking for a nourishing, lightweight Shampoo, why not try the Jacks of London True Gent Hassle Free Shampoo.

If your hair gets easily greasy and sweaty and you feel the need to shampoo every day, choose a mild shampoo. Focus on cleansing the scalp and not your hair.

Beat The Heat

Avoid using heated tools such as hair straighteners and blow driers, as these will only add distress to your hair. Let your hair air-dry as much as possible, however if you do feel the need to blow dry your hair, keep the setting at a low or medium temperature.

Make sure you remember to use a heat protector on the days you do use heated tools!

Tried An Overnight Hair Treatment?

Another great product to use for summer hair is an overnight treatment. They are really simple to use; all you need to do is apply the treatment from the roots to the ends, wrap your hair in a towel – leave overnight and bam, wake up to lovely soft smooth hair!

Saved By The Dry-Shampoo…

For the days where your hair is both greasy and oily – or you really don’t want to give it a wash, give dry-shampoo a go! It’s great at soaking up excess oil without causing your scalp to produce more! It’ll also save you time in the morning, bonus!

Protect Yourself From The Sun

Wearing a hat or cap is the best way to protect your hair from the sun when you’re out in it. If you’re anything like us and feel you don’t really suit a cap, then give a leave in conditioner with SPF a go…

Going For A Swim?

Swimming in both the pool and sea can strip your hair of its natural, protective oils – making your hair look straw like, dry and damaged. Rinse your hair with water before heading into the pool – Shampoo reacts negatively with chlorine water and causes your hair to dry out! You can apply a small amount of coconut oil to your hair, the oil acts as a barrier between your hair and chlorinated water. When out of the water, make sure you rinse your hair with clean water as the longer the chlorine/salt water is in your hair, the more damage it can cause.

Drop by your nearest store and chat to one of our experienced barbers for advice and tips on how to keep your hair looking great this summer.
