Hair Care for the Changing Seasons

Well, summer is just around the corner and we couldn't be more excited. But, a not-so-exciting thought is getting your hair out of that awkward stage between the dry winter months and the moist summer months. Not to panic! Here is how to take your hair from drab to fab with just a few steps!

Combat Dryness: Combing a conditioner through the hair and leaving it on for three minutes will help get adequate coverage. If your hair is extremely dry, use the conditioner as a masque by applying it to your hair, covering it with a plastic bag and letting it sit for 30 minutes. Do this weekly!

Your hair will start to look and feel great, but as the weather becomes warmer, the natural moisture levels of your hair do begin to change. You may notice this if your hair starts to become overly moist and limp. If this occurs, leave the conditioner on for only a minute before rinsing.

Protect: To avoid future dryness and damage after the summer months, it's important to protect your hair from UV damage just as you would your skin! The sun can cause unwanted split ends, lightening, and dryness. Plenty of brands are now offering UV protecting shampoo — making it easy than ever to add it into your summer beauty care regimen!

What are some of your summer beauty regimens? How do you keep your hair in shape year round?
