Sun, sea, chlorine, oh my! Most curlies equate dry hair with harsh winter weather but in the summertime, curls are prone to dehydration too! Today, we’re breaking down a few ways you can avoid summer weather dryness, so your curls stay on point all season long!
And when you think you’ve deep conditioned enough, deep condition some more. Like we said, a lot of curlies focus on deep conditioning in the winter and then slow it down in the warmer months. We’re here to tell you: don’t do it!
Over the summer months, curls are exposed to more sun, heat, and water which means deep conditioning is important all year round! Our favorite curly deep conditioners are Heaven In Hair, Melt Into Moisture, and Deep Sea Repair!
Take It to Go
If you find that your curls dry out during the day, try mixing a bit of One Condition and water in a little spray bottle and throw it in your bag. This not only brings moisture back to curls, but it also revitalizes curls!
We all enjoy the occasional margarita to cool off in the summer heat, but don’t forget to load up on water! Drinking a substantial amount of water everyday will not only make your body feel good, but it also helps to keep curls (and skin!) hydrated.
Protect Your Curls
Just like your skin, your curls can be damaged from the sun. If you’re planning to be out in the sun for an extended period of time, make sure to protect your curls by rocking a cute scarf or hat.
Clarifying your curls after outdoor activities (such as swimming) is extremely important! Clarifying helps removes harsh chemicals and salt from curls leaving them fresh and ready for a deep conditioning session! Our favorite clarifying cleanser is Buildup Buster.
