Protect the summer coloured hair is even more important that throughout the year. Accomplices the sun and UV rays, salt, wind and very frequent washes, weaken, become opaque, lose elasticity and the colour tends to fade or take ugly reflections. Moreover, by sweating more, even sebum and sweat tend to weigh them down, and the result is that of hair that is always dirty, dry, dull and poorly cared for.
But is there a way to treat them during the summer? Yes, but we have to put it in our heads that should be treated exactly as much as the skin. We start with washing and drying, ending with masks and specific treatments and sun products also for our hair. Do you want to find out how to preserve the beauty of your hair as much as possible in summer? Then keep reading the article and write down all the useful info!
TRY TO ABANDON THE IRONS AND PLATES, YES TO THE HAIR DRYED IN THE AIR BUT BEWARE!
The first thing to do to try to protect coloured hair in the summer is to abandon the iron, the plate and the wild brushing. In fact, the hair is already subjected to the stress of dying or worse the discolouration and the sun and the salt do nothing but help the hair to crumble and dry up.
The fold with brush and hair dryer is therefore aggressive because continuous rubbing tends to break the hair. This happens naturally when they are loose because of the wind that ties them and the continuous automatic movement they do when they are not tied, so better to avoid further stress!
Plates and irons, on the other hand, are harmful because of their excess heat, also because in summer they wash their hair almost every day, can you imagine passing hot tools every day?
TRY SLEEPING WITH BRAIDS, CHIGNON OR WITH THE METHOD OF THE PERFECT SOCK OR HEADBAND JUST AWAKE!
Better to opt for beach waves, or gather hair in the evening in a braid or a pair of chignon with slightly damp hair, to wake up in the morning with beautiful natural waves.
If you really can’t give up having your hair in order, opt for the rotating brushes, which are less invasive than plates and irons but eliminate frizz and guarantee a fold in a short time without being excessively aggressive.
UNDER THE SUN, TRY TO KEEP THEM TIED AND COVER THE MOST POSSIBLE
To protect coloured hair in the summer you can also opt for accessories that will immediately make you stylish by doing good to your hair. One of the best ways to take care of it is, in fact, to cover them with bandanas, scarves and hats.
The wide-brimmed hats, perhaps straw, are perfect because they immediately make the sea and protect you from the sun, especially during the hottest hours, even in the face. There are so many models, this year the fisherman’s model seems to be back in fashion but the basketball cap is also a timeless must, especially if it is a designer.
Go ahead then to bandanas and foulards, to tie in the most classic of ways or try them in a turban and band version, to match the costume to make the hairstyle part of a real look.
THE CUTEST HAIRSTYLES TO CHOOSE TO PROTECT THE HAIR
And why not try those hairstyles you always see on Instagram? They are perfect for protecting coloured hair and not in the summer because the more they are collected and therefore receive rays, so the sun and the salt will attack the colour and lengths much less.
Try the boxer braids, a must on the beach, but also high or side tails, messy buns and chignons of various kinds, side braids or maxi braids and any hairstyle that can collect them and also prevent the wind from knotting them.
Be careful, however, not to over tighten with the elastic, to prevent them from breaking or the inconvenience of a headache. Also, always apply moisturizing and protective products before styling them, so that they are even more pampered.
