No one wants summer hair sadness; here’s how to rehab your hair from summer damage.

There’s no better time than summertime: golden skin, sea-salt hair and not a care in the world.

As the chill of September rolls in, so does the reality that maybe spending so much time in the sun without a care, might have not been the greatest idea. The sun can be incredibly damaging to your hair, which is why you have to make sure to love your hair as much as you loved your tanning oil all summer long.

Not to worry, we have gathered some tips that’ll be sure to help undo any hair damage and prevent anymore as the colder months make their way.

Problem #1: How to Quench Dry Hair?

 One of the main problems the sun causes is an intense loss of moisture.

 Loss of moisture = breakage

Here are some other tricks that will help kick start your route to recovery…

Drop the Tools Fool

Keeping your hair natural for at least a couple weeks is definitely one of the best forms of detox.  The more heat you apply to your hair the worse the damage becomes. Heat encourages the formation of split ends. Sacrifice your styling tools for a little while, as your hair gets healthier, you might even begin to prefer your hair without them.

If you absolutely must style your hair, use a blow dryer on low heat.

Splurge on Some Silk

Nope we are not talking about lingerie or slip dresses but rather pillow cases.

Why should you replace your traditional pillowcase with silk?

Silk can help keep bed head in check. Its natural composition reduces friction which will prevent split ends and morning hair craziness. Traditional pillowcase materials like cotton are porous and therefore rob your hair of its natural moisture, whereas silk will leave your hair alone.

Gotta Let Loose

Try to limit the amount of times you tie your hair up.

Tying your hair too often or too tightly can strain your hair. This will contribute to breakage, making hair brittle, weak and thin. 

With these tips, your hair will be back to its luscious self in no time!
It’ll eventually forget all about the time you put lemon in your hair and then sun bathed for 6 hours.
That’s right. I know what you did this summer.
