“Dive   into   Summer: “

As summer heats up and poolside lounging becomes a favorite pastime, it’s essential to care for your hair and protect your scalp from the sun’s harsh rays. Whether you’re splashing in the pool or soaking up some rays, we’ve got you covered with our top tips for poolside hair care and sun protection.

Essential   Poolside   Hair Care   and   Sun   Protection   Tips

  • Pre-Pool Preparation: Before diving into the pool, it’s essential to prep your hair to minimize damage from chlorine and saltwater. Start by saturating your hair with fresh water from the shower or a water bottle. This helps to reduce the absorption of chlorinated or saltwater, minimizing the drying effects on your hair.

 

  • Shield Your Strands: While swimming, consider wearing a swim cap to protect your hair from prolonged exposure to chlorine and saltwater. If a swim cap isn’t your style, apply a leave-in conditioner or hair oil to your hair before swimming to create a barrier against pool chemicals and seal in moisture.
  • Rinse and Restore: After swimming, rinse your hair thoroughly with fresh water to remove any chlorine or salt residue. Follow up with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner to cleanse and replenish moisture lost during swimming. Look for products specifically formulated for swimmers to remove chlorine and mineral build-up while nourishing your hair like Kevin Murphy Maxi-Wash.
  • Sun Protection for Your Scalp: Don’t forget to protect your scalp from the sun’s harmful UV rays, especially if you’ll be spending extended time outdoors. Apply sunscreen or a hair product with SPF directly to your scalp, focusing on exposed areas like your part line and hairline. Wearing a wide-brimmed hat or a cap can also provide additional protection for your scalp and hair.

 

  • Hydrate and Nourish: Keep your hair hydrated and nourished throughout the summer with regular deep conditioning treatments and moisturizing hair masques. Incorporate these treatments into your weekly haircare routine to replenish moisture, repair damage, and keep your locks looking healthy and vibrant.

 

With these poolside hair care and sun protection tips, you can enjoy the summer sun and keep your hair looking fabulous all season long. Whether you’re lounging by the pool or soaking up the rays at the beach, remember to prioritize the health and hydration of your hair and scalp. Dive into summer with confidence, knowing that your hair is protected and ready for all the fun in the sun!
