Get Your Hair in Shape for Summer

It’s finally summer! The sun is out, the weather is warming up, and it’s time to prepare your hair for the summer months. Your hair is your crowning glory and the single most important accessory you can wear. And during the summer, it’s especially important to take care of your hair so that it stays fresh and fabulous. 

As it turns out, all of the best outdoor summer activities also cause a lot of damage to your hair, and before you know it, your hair can be dry, brittle, and fried. But you don’t have to hide in the shade to avoid damage—get out there and enjoy the sun! Just follow these tips to help keep your hair in good shape through the summer:

Use a leave-in hair repair serum.

Using a leave-in reparative treatment is a must for summer heat. It will protect your hair from those pesky UV rays and heat damage. This is especially important for people with dry or damaged hair but is also great for all hair types. Plus you can use it to tame frizz and add shine.

This is where Kente® BOND serum comes to the rescue! Even better than a leave-in conditioner, this heat-activated, leave-in treatment reverses existing damage while protecting your hair from future threats. It strengthens  hair, mends broken ends, and gives you the soft, shiny, healthy-looking hair that you deserve. 

Protect your hair from chlorine and salt water. 

We cannot stress enough how damaging chlorine and salt water can be for your hair. Not only can they strip your hair and leave it dry, brittle, and frizzy, but salt water and chlorine can actually weaken the structural integrity of your hair.

Before going swimming, applying a leave-in conditioner is a must. This creates an extra layer of defense for your hair and prevents it from soaking up too much chlorine or salt water when you take a dip. Gazar® LEAVE-IN conditioner will keep your hair saturated in nutrients and shake off the damaging effects of swimming. 

Don’t forget UV protection for your hair.

Sun damage can be a big issue for your locks. If your hair goes through prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays, it can result in discoloration, dry hair, and split ends. In addition to using sunscreen to protect your skin, you should also be using UV protection for your hair. 

Rinzu® COVER uv spray is the perfect solution. Infused with zinc, sunflower seed extract, and white tea extract, it’s packed with natural sunblocks that form an effective barrier against harmful UV rays. It can be used on damp hair before you style or spritzed on throughout the day to prevent color fade and sun damage. 

Deep condition your hair before sun exposure.

Before exposing your hair to the sun, a deep conditioner is key! Designed to hydrate, soften, and strengthen hair, a deep conditioner can help restore your hair’s natural luster. The added moisture also prevents your hair from drying out in the sun.

For healthier and softer hair, we recommend using Kente® BOND hair mask. This innovative formula uses smart ingredients that target damaged areas of the hair, strengthening your hair  and sealing in moisture. A luxurious hair conditioning treatment, BOND hair mask delivers sustained protection from hair damage.

You can protect your hair from sun damage and still have fun in the sun.

It’s important to take care of your hair so that it stays healthy and strong, but you don’t have to deprive yourself of fun in the sun. You can still enjoy summer activities and protect your hair from sun damage at the same time. If you follow these tips, your hair will be strong and shiny all summer long!
