How to take Care of your Hair – Summer Hair Care

While Summer is known for being a season of carefree fun in the sun, did you know that it can also be the most damaging season for our hair? Those long days basking in the summer sunlight and taking dips in the pool or the ocean can dry out your hair, leaving it looking limp, lackluster, and lifeless. Keep your hair happy and healthy all Summer long using these natural, chemical-free methods.

1. Cover Up!
The sun is known for its harsh UVA and UVB rays that can do a number on our skin—causing everything from dryness and signs of skin aging to sunburns and skin cancer. But the effects of the sun’s rays don’t end at our epidermis. Fact is sunlight—as warm and inviting as it may seem—can do a number on our hair. To protect your hair from fading and drying out due to the sun you’ll want to keep them protected all season long. Wear a fashionable floppy hat or a stunning silk scarf. The fact is you have to protect your hair the same way you’d protect your skin from the sun if you want it to look its best. A hat reduces damage caused by wind, especially if your hair is prone to tangling, and protects colour-treated hair.

2. Put your hair up in loose, comfortable styles
A messy braid is ideal for keeping your hair under control and minimising exposure to the sun. Tight hairstyles can be damaging because they tend to pull and tear hair, especially if your hair is dry from the summer heat. Overly tight hairstyles—ponytails, braids, buns, and the like—can pull on our strands and cause breakage. During the summer months when our hair is extra fragile from the heat, take care to style your hair into loose knots and braids and steer clear of plastic elastics which can do further damage, opting instead for soft hair ties or bobby pins.

3. Wash less often
Frequent washing strips your scalp of its natural oils, which in turn stimulates additional oil production and makes you feel the need to wash it even more. Sweat and summer go hand-in-hand but washing your hair frequently to get rid of the grease isn’t doing it any favours. Try just rinsing in the shower after a day at the beach or pool, and see if that gets rid of some extra oil. In place of regular shampoo, try INSIGHT Antioxidant Rejuvenating Mask, apply to wet hair, distributing evenly. Leave on 5/10 minutes, rinse thoroughly, this natural product protects the hair from external aggressions.

4. Reduce the heat
Try to blow-dry your hair as little as possible. It is already exposed to a significant amount of heat on a daily basis in the summer, and it will probably air-dry quickly anyways, so give the blow dryer a break and go natural if you can. Avoid flat-irons, too, as they will do further damage to already-dry hair. Save the hot tools for special occasions and embrace your hair’s natural texture on a day-to-day basis. Try a hair oil enriched with Organic Ginkgo and Organic Aloe Extract to discipline frizz without heat for an effortlessly smooth undone style. When your hair is still damp reach for INSIGHT Styling oil NON OIL or liqiud crystals and distribute through your strands, —this will help to keep the frizz at bay! Then either air dry loose or style in a braid for a more controlled texture once your hair has dried.

5. Protect your Hair with Organic hair treatments
There are shampoos that contain UV protection, but most of those are chemical-laden, conventional shampoos that I’d recommend avoiding. One quick way to add some protection to your hair is try using a hair Shampoo & Conditioner that helps protect your hair from mechanical stress, pollution and dyes. Try INSIGHT Rejuvenating Shampoo / Conditioner which contains + Organic Carrot Extract to perform an antioxidant action against the harmful effects of free radicals.
The chlorine in swimming pools and the salt in the ocean are both incredibly drying—and can even strip color-treated hair of its hue. Since our dry hair is very porous and is always seeking moisture, when we dive right in with dry hair, our strands absorb these drying waters. Before taking the plunge, wet your hair with fresh water—or better yet, apply an organic oil spray for added protection. Try INSIGHT Protective Hair Spray on the hair before and during the exposure to sunlight. This product protects the hair from the harmful effects of free radicals thanks to the natural ingredients + Organic Coconut Oil + Hazelnut and jojoba Oils, and shields  your hair against weather conditions, sun rays, chlorine & sea salt.
