Tips for Managing Your Long Hair in the Summer

As the months march on and the days get hotter and hotter, it’s easy to forget about how these changes can affect the hair you’ve worked so hard to grow. Some may see having long hair in the summer as a curse, but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing if you take care of it properly. If you plan to keep your hair long for a while, you’ll need to know how summer can affect it. Here we have a few tips for managing your long hair in the summer that should help.

Keep Your Hair Hydrated

Hydration is critical when it comes to your hair. If you notice your hair is starting to feel dry more often, it’s time to switch to a more hydrating Australia natural shampoo bar and conditioner. The excessive heat of late spring and summer can really suck all the moisture out of your hair. Search for products that have hydrating agents in them, such as aloe or coconut oil.

Style for the Weather

Sometimes, it’s just far too hot to have your long hair right up against your skin. That’s why you probably want to come up with some new styles that work for your hair but keep it out of your way. Tying up your hair is fine, but you don’t want to tie it so tightly that you start to damage it. Braids or plaits are certainly great ways to manage your hair stylishly.

Layer Your Hair

You can save yourself a lot of annoyance in managing your long hair in the summer by working with your hairstylist. Having your hair all one length rarely looks good on its own anyway, but adding texture and movement to your hair can make a big difference in the warmer months. Ask your stylist to layer your hair in the front and back. This reduces your hair’s bulkiness and weight, which will keep you cooler in the heat.

Avoid Excess Heat or Sun

The best way to care for your hair in the sweltering summer months is to avoid letting it absorb too much sun or be out in the heat too long. Hats and parasols are your friends in the summer, as they can protect your hair from the sun’s rays. You don’t need to avoid going outside at all—you just need to take the proper precautions to protect your hair from the elements.
