How to optimize your hair for summer: tips for healthier and stronger hair

Summer is right around the corner, and while we adjust our wardrobes and prepare our skin for more sun exposure, we often forget to give our hair the attention it deserves. In this article, we'll discuss how to best prepare your hair for summer, keeping it healthy, strong, and radiant throughout the season. Let's break it down for you.

  • Start with a Healthy Foundation

Before summer truly begins, it's a good idea to give your hair a fresh start. So, head to your favorite hairstylist to trim those split ends. Split ends can travel further up the hair shaft and cause more damage, so regular trims help keep your hair healthy.

  • Hydration is Key

Just like your skin needs extra hydration in the summer, so does your hair. Sun and salty seawater can dry out your hair, leaving it brittle and dull. Use a moisturizing hair mask at least once a week to replenish moisture (check out our Moisture Collection). Opt for products containing ingredients like argan oil, jojoba oil, or coconut oil, known for their moisturizing properties.

  • Sun Protection

Just as your skin needs protection from UV rays, so does your hair. The sun can not only dry out your hair but also fade hair color, especially if you've colored it. Invest in hair products with SPF or wear a hat or scarf when spending extended time outdoors. There are also specific sprays and oils that provide UV protection and can easily be incorporated into your daily routine. And what about a Highlight Protector Spray? This protects your highlights from drying out, super convenient and effective.

  • Minimize Heat Usage

In summer, it's tempting to opt for quick styling options like blow-drying, curling irons, or straighteners. However, the combination of heat styling and summer sun can put extra stress on your hair. Try to let your hair air dry naturally and use heat protectant sprays if you must use heat. Also, experiment with hairstyles that don't require heat, like braids or loose buns.

  • Chlorine and Saltwater: Avoid Damage

Swimming is undoubtedly the most fun thing to do in summer, but chlorine in pools and salt in seawater can be harmful to your hair. Rinse your hair before and after swimming with clean water. This not only helps remove harmful chemicals but also prevents your hair from absorbing too much salt or chlorine. Consider applying a leave-in conditioner before swimming as well.

  • Healthy Nutrition for Healthy Hair

What you eat directly impacts the health of your hair. Ensure your diet is rich in vitamins and minerals beneficial to hair health. Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon and walnuts, vitamin E (almonds, spinach), and biotin (eggs, avocados), can help strengthen your hair from within.

  • Stay Hydrated

Finally, don't forget to drink plenty of water. Hydration from within is crucial for maintaining hair health. By drinking enough water, you help keep your hair hydrated and shiny.


Summer brings its own set of challenges for hair care, but with the right preparation and products, you can tackle these challenges. Whether you're dealing with UV rays, chlorine water, or just the heat, every problem can be addressed with a thoughtful approach. By following these steps, you ensure your hair stays healthy no matter what your plans are this summer.

With these tips, you're well on your way to optimal hair care and preparation for summer. Whether you're staying home or traveling to exotic destinations, your hair will thank you for the extra attention it receives. So, grab your sun hat, your favorite hydrating products, and get ready to let your hair shine this summer. Look good, feel good!
