Hair Hydration 101

Summer weather can be absolutely beautiful. While the warmer temperatures are great for summer fun, heat can have a detrimental effect on the hair.

Here are some tips you can share with your customers about the importance of protecting their hair during the hot summer months:

  • Use a moisturizing shampoo and leave-in conditioner.
  • Drink lots of water throughout the day to prevent hair from becoming very brittle.
  • Use a deep conditioning mask on your hair.
  • Keep blow drying and additional heat sources out of your hair.
  • Use a quality hairbrush when detangling the hair.
  • Sleep in a satin bonnet to protect the hair while sleeping.

The following products are great for heat protection:
