Understanding the Seasonal Strain on Your Strands

As the summer season ushers in, it invites an array of unique challenges and opportunities for hair care. Today we're shedding light on a hot topic: the impact of summer on your hair health. You love the sun, the beach, and the laid-back vibe, but your hair might not be as enthusiastic. Below, we explore the challenges and share tips for keeping your locks lush in the heat.


 

Battling the Sun's Rays

Extended exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays during summer is one of the primary challenges for hair health. UV radiation can penetrate hair shafts, compromising their structural integrity. This exposure leads to a breakdown of the natural proteins in hair, particularly keratin, which is essential for strength and elasticity. Over time, UV exposure can lead to weakened, brittle hair, increased split ends, and color degradation, especially in chemically treated or dyed hair. The result is hair that looks and feels dry, lackluster and is more prone to damage.


Summer Humidity vs. Hair

Humidity levels are typically higher during summer, which affects the hair's ability to maintain a consistent hydrolipidic balance. Higher humidity causes hair to absorb moisture from the air, leading to swelling of the hair fibers. This swelling disrupts the cuticles, creating a lifted appearance that promotes frizziness and makes hair harder to manage. For individuals with naturally curly or wavy hair, the summer can exacerbate these texture tendencies, causing the hair to become more unruly.


The Chlorine and Salt Water Effect

Summertime swimming, while refreshing, exposes hair to chlorine in pools and salt in seawater, both of which can be harsh on the hair. Chlorine strips natural oils from the hair, leading to loss of moisture, increased dryness, and sometimes, a greenish tinge to light-colored hair due to copper residues in pool water. Similarly, salt water can draw moisture out from the hair, intensifying dryness and making it tangled and brittle. These factors combined lead to hair that not only looks damaged but also is structurally weaker.


Sweat, Oil, and the Scalp

Higher temperatures and increased physical activity during summer can lead to excessive sweating. This excess sweat can accumulate on the scalp and hair, attracting dirt and pollutants while clogging hair follicles. Additionally, the scalp may increase sebum production to combat dryness, potentially leading to oily scalp and hair. This build-up needs regular cleansing to prevent scalp irritations, itchiness, and potential hair follicle damage that could impede hair growth.


The Curse of Product Buildup

With the increased use of sun protection products, conditioners, and other styling formulations meant to combat summer hair issues, there is a risk of product buildup on both the hair and scalp. This accumulation can weigh hair down and leave it looking dull and lifeless. It’s essential to use clarifying shampoos occasionally during the summer months to cleanse the buildup effectively and restore hair's natural vibrancy.



Gear up for summer hair care as the sunshine season approaches. Giving your hair the attention it needs is key to preventing the summer blues from turning into hair woes.




UV Ray Protection
Challenge: Sun exposure breaks down hair proteins and causes color to fade.

Wear a Hat: Embrace stylish hats to physically block the sun and add a fashionable twist to your summer outfits.

Use SPF for Hair: Invest in hair care products containing UV protection. Just like your skin, your hair deserves a shield against harmful rays.

Hydration and Nutrition

Challenge: Maintaining internal hydration and nutrition for optimal summer hair health.

Drink Water: Increase your water intake to keep both your body and hair hydrated from the inside out.
Balanced Diet: Ensure your diet includes vitamins and minerals essential for hair strength and growth, such as vitamins A, C, E, zinc, and iron.
Supplements: Based on professional advice, consider supplements that support hair health. Biotin, often touted for its benefits in strengthening hair and nails, is a popular choice. Omega-3 supplements can also promote scalp health and improve hair density.
